Old Year's Night Red Lips #RedLipsChallenge

Christmas gone but we still like to rock our red lips for Old Year's Night (New Year's Eve for our international supporters). Here's the part two to the other #RedLipsChallenge post. Don't forget, you can see loads more product options on Heidi's, Sabrina's and Blair's Instagram accounts.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick 'Electric Mauve' + M.A.C Riri Woo Pro Longwear Lip Pencil

This combination is great for those of you who love a more pinky-red lip. Sometimes we need a little something to make these longwear lip pencils a little more bearable. The added benefit of using this lipstick is that it's full of shimmer particles which gives the lips dimension.


Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick 'Envious'
I absolutely love this line of lipsticks. You don't even need a liner with this one.

Tom Ford Lip Color 'Rouge Fatal' + OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil 'Black Dahlia'
Just beautiful. The lipstick on its own…

Winners Row 2014

We hope you're still enjoying the festivities and food of this glorious time of year. We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone that entered this year's giveaways. Again, they were all funded by #TeamModen but we still wanted to offer you the best that we could. Hopefully, all the winners are enjoying their treats. Here's to bigger and better in 2015!







The pleasure has been ours.

Top Blushes (and Highlighters) of 2014

First things first - I Poppa freaks all the hunnies (wha Iggy wha) - no, seriously; thanks to all of you for sticking with us throughout the year. It means a lot.

Now, truly I couldda just reposted 2013's picks cause all of those are still in heavy rotation. But what's life without a little variety. This year I've really gotten into highlighters so I had to include a few.

Black Radiance Artisan Color Baked Blush 'Toasted Almond'
Heidi gave me this gem. I really enjoyed mixing blushes this year and this was one that was perfect for the back of my cheekbones; call it a blush contour if you will. This blush also gave great dimension since its baked formula has a built in sheen. I think this would look excellent on a range of skintones.


La Femme Blush - On Rouge 'Sienna'
Another 'blush contour' product or just plain contour. La Femme blushes are very pigmented so one will last your whole life. This year I even used this to give my eyes dimension. It's …

My Foundations: Revlon Nearly Naked

Last entry in the Foundation Series for 2014; and funny enough I intended to compare this foundation to the Maybelline Fit Me one eva since. Well as they say, better late than never...

As seen in Cave Shepherd, Broad Street

From the Revlon site: "Description - The ultimate lightweight makeup. Formulated with weightless pigments, this refreshingly light formula melts right in, creating a fresh, even complexion. Works in harmony with your skin to cover flaws and perfect tone and texture. Features: • Naturally flawless complexion • Creates a fresh, even look and covers flaws
• Blends seamlessly with buildable coverage for a natural finish

I have the shade '290 Cappuccino' which is too red for me.
Comparison of Maybelline Fit Me '355 Coconut' and Revlon Nearly Naked '290 Cappuccino'
Due to the having the incorrect shade I can only really talk about the formula. On that front I find very little differences between this and …

Christmas Red Lips #RedLipsChallenge

The plan was to show you my top ten from the #RedLipsChallenge that Heidi, Blair, Sabrina and I are taking part in on Instagram. As you lip junkies know, red lip products stain like a mofo so Imma give you five now and five next week. #beautybloggerproblem Be sure to check out the Instagram links previously mentioned for some awesome red lip products.

Revlon ColorStay Lipliner 'Red' + Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss 'Fatal Apple'

This is a great combination for someone that's new to red lips. The Lip Gloss is very sheer and shiny so it moisturizes the lips. Revlon's ColorStay lip liners are dupes for M.A.C Pro Longwear ones. This one is particular is a dupe (colour and staying power) for 'RiRi Woo' Pro Longwear lip liner that was limited edition.

Revlon Lip Butter 'Cherry Tart' + Jordana Lipliner 'Cabaret'

Like the combination previously mentioned this is an easy one for beginners. T…
