Valentine’s Day to Night Outfit

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 

I’m one of those people who love Valentine’s Day whether I am celebrating it with someone or not. I love the flowers, chocolates and stuffed animals in the tradional reds and pinks!

Today, I wanted share with you my Valentine’s Day themed outfit that is perfect for going from day to night!

This outfit is very simple. I took one of the few red shirts I own and paired it with a pair of distressed jeans and heels for a casual but put together day time look.

For the evening look, I changed from the jeans into this black lace pencil skirt. I LOVE this skirt because it’s black so it goes with everything and the lace adds some detail and has a feminine touch to it!


Outfit Details:

  • Shirt: The Limited
  • Skirt: JCrew
  • Jeans: Hollister
  • Bag: Nordstrom
  • Shoes: Express
  • Watch: Michael Kors

-Until next time!

Kylie Lip Kits Review!

Hi All,

When it comes to makeup, I like to stick with what I know works best with the exception of lipsticks. Lipsticks are the most fun and easiest way to change up your makeup look, I love trying out new lipsticks and shades (usually neutral shades 😛 ) ! With that being said, how could I not try out the most talked about liquid lipstick to have hit the market, the Kylie Lip Kits!

I wasn’t looking to purchase these until she came out with her birthday collection. I really wanted her lipstick minis because it would be a good way to try out a few of her colors so in hopes of those I hopped online at the time she had announced they would go on sale. I quickly added the minis to my cart but once I got to checkout they were already sold out, all in under a minute of them going on sale! Since I had already made the effort to get on her site at the right time, I decided I might as well try purchasing one of the other colors so I went for her limited edition Leo Lip Kit and the Dolce K lipstick and was able to order them before they sold out.

They arrived in about a week after placing the order in a Kylie Cosmetics box and with a note from Kylie about her birthday edition. I tried the lipsticks and liner and have reviewed them for you below!

Leo Lip Kit Review

The Leo Lip kit is a limited edition color that Kylie released to celebrate her birthday and isn’t always available for purchase. It’s a dark burgundy color with tones of red and purple. I think this is a beautiful color for fall and is great for occasional wear. I personally wouldn’t wear this shade often because it was too dark/intense of a color for me but anyone who is into dark and bold colors would love this! The lip kit comes with the liquid lipstick and a lip liner.

Dolce K Liquid Lipstick Review

The Dolce K color comes in a Lip Kit which includes a liquid lipstick and a lip liner but it can also be purchased alone. I chose to buy just the lipstick. I would describe the color of this as a cool nude brown. It’s definitely a neutral color but it also makes a statement at the same time. I think this is a shade that can work on almost any skin tone, however, because of the shade it can make your lips look unhydrated and really shows the cracks so make sure you apply lots of lip balm in between! I personally will be rocking out Dolce K more than Leo because I find the color to be more wearable as it is more neutral.

Final Thoughts

I think Kylie has really come up with some great lipsticks and some interesting colors that are very her and are very much in trend. The formula is good, long lasting and vanilla scented but as with most matte liquid lipsticks, you need to keep your lips hydrated in between.

I don’t think i’d be eager to purchase these again unless she comes up with another color that I really like. Otherwise, I think they are comparable to other liquid lipsticks in the market that are more easily accessible.

Comment below and let me know if you’ve tried her lipsticks and what your favorite shades are!
