Lavender Tint Makeup Look

Today's FOTD is purple themed since I promised to post a look using the NK Lavender Tint. I am so in love with this lipstick!

NK Lipstick in Lavender Tint

Mondays are tough for me. I have an extremely hard time getting up and usually hit the snooze button more than I should. This morning the garbage truck woke me up a half an hour earlier than my alarm so I decided to stay up and take my time getting ready. More time to get ready = more time for makeup… so I did a full face including eyeshadow. Today’s FOTD is purple themed since I promised to post a look using the NK lipstick in Lavender Tint.

NK Lipstick in Lavender Tint

I am so in love with this lipstick and hoping my BSS restocks so that I can get a back up tube. I also realize that I need to show my MAC eyeshadows more love. I totally forgot that I had Stars n Rockets and it’s too pretty of a color to be neglecting like I do!

  1. You might have answered this already, but where did you get your Banana powder? Every where I’ve seen it charges an arm and a leg for shipping.

    1. I purchased mine at a Ricky’s here in NYC. I have a post scheduled
      about Banana Powder for tomorrow but you can check Ricky’s Website,

  2. I love the makeup but my question is about your hair. I recently went short. I am wondering what you do to ensure the sides lay so flat and remain straight. Also what heat protectant to use to straighten the top? Thank you!

    1. Thank you. I apply a little ORS Olive Oil Edge Control to my edges before I tie it down. I use different heat protectors to straighten depending on the style and condition of my hair at the time including Fantasia IC Hair Polisher and Hana Shine Shield. Hope that helps.

  3. I love that you are not afraid to rock bright colors and you look great in them. I’ve always been afraid to rock bright colors, but one day I hope to step outside the box and do so…baby steps. LOL Your makeup skills are so flawless and on point.

    1. Thank you so much. You can do it, start with a bright lipgloss and apply it sheer then gradually build the color up until you are comfortable. Then you can move to bright lipsticks 🙂

  4. Hey Erica I stumbled upon your blog looking for reviews on Mac’s “Ruby Woo”…and I luv luv luv ur style, recipes and makeup looks. I’m showing u some love all the way from Barbados and with u as my inspiration GLAMTABULOUS is my new motto.

    PS thanx for reviewing the Nicka K Lippies since I wanted to try them but was skeptical…

  5. Lavender Tint is so gorgeous! This is what I hoped that Viva Glam Nicki 2 would look like 🙂 I’m going to buy another back up ASAP. Btw, this looks great on you
