Kat Von D Studded Lipsticks | A Clothes Look

Today I am showing you five lipsticks that I bought from the newly released Kat Von D Studded Lipsticks. A few of these lipsticks are colors from her previous collection but they vamped up the packaging and reformulated the lipstick.

With the re-vamp, the price of the lipsticks went from $19 to $21 a piece, Kat Von D is exclusive to Sephora.  The box is a shiny black, with a raised texture of studs.

The case is a gorgeous black, studded case that feels very sturdy in your hand. 

I will say you might want to swatch in store before buying because the formulas are across the board.

 

Coven, a light lavender color, is probably the most wanted Kat Von D lipstick, it was the first to sell out.

Coven applies patchy and is a bit drying. The best way I found to apply it to get the intensity above without a lipliner is to blot in between layers of lipstick.  This is about three layers. 

 

Poe, a dark navy with sparkle, has been blowing up on Instagram.

This is a gorgeous color but needs a lipliner! It slides around on my lips and it is a little grainy because of the sparkle.

 

Lovecraft, a mauve-rose nude.

This color is a beautiful, your lips but better nude. It applies smooth and fully opaque in one coat. I highly suggest this color.

A-Go-Go, a bright neon orange.

This color also applies smoothly and opaquely on the lips with no problem.

L’ECole Des Femmes is a bright coral color.

This is a great color for Summer, it is smooth and comfortable to wear and opaque. 

 

 

I have a few other colors on my list but I decided to wait until I can swatch them in person to see the consistency of the product.  Have you picked any up? Will you? 

July Ipsy Bag | A Clothes Look

DSC_6313

July’s Ipsy bag came in this adorable, hot pink, pleather bag.  If this was in black it would have been beyond perfect for me. 

DSC_6305

One of the first things in my bag was the Elizabeth Mott Tints and Sass, this reminds me of another version of the infamous Benefit’s benetint it even resembles the same color and it smells like cherries.

Pur Minerals Mascara

DSC_6308

 

I am running low on mascara in my drawer so this can go into rotation soon, but I’m kind of “bleh another mascara”. 

This item is the one I am most excited to use, this is the Bare Minerals 5-in-1 Cream Eyeshadow.  I received the color Divine Wine and I love the color and texture.

Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil

DSC_6309

I don’t use these types of products normally, so I will probably pass this on to a friend. 

Befine Food Skin Care
DSC_6311

A face lotion with sunscreen, I don’t see me using this either so I will probably pass it on. 

 

 

I give this bag a 3 out of 5, I’m really not excited for two of the five products.  However, I am sure next month will be better I am sure these are decent products just I won’t use a lot of them.  Ipsy is a $10 a month subscription service that is full size or deluxe size samples and is mostly beauty products.  If you would like to sign up, you can do so here

 

What did you get in your box?

Birthday Memebox Unboxing | A Clothes Look

DSC_6287

Happy Birthday! Okay, it’s not my birthday month but I did pick up the July birthday memebox and lets be honest this post was a great reason to eat cake. 

DSC_6288

DSC_6289

I received four hand creams each one has a different fragrance that coincides with the bottle so lavender, sunflower, rose and safflower.  These are great little throw in your purse lotions.  This is by the Korean brand i belivyu.  This retails for $36.

DSC_6290

 

This next product is also by the brand i belivyu and it’s an all-in-one hair and body wash. I only see me using this on my body and it has a nice scent I would probably say fruity.  The ingredients are apricot, carrot, green tea, chamomile, rosemary and centella asiatica and gold extracts.  This retails for $14.

DSC_6291

I am a sucker for this packaging I love the test tube feel.  The Cube Sparkling Lemon Sugar Scrub is by the brand i belivyu as well and is a sugar scrub for face, body and bath.  They’re actually shaped as small sugar cubes (like you would use for your coffee or tea) and you use either 1 for your face, 2-3 for your body or 4-5 in your bath. This retails for $24.

DSC_6292

 

Another sucker for the packaging right here, by the same brand as the previous this Powder Wash Vitamin Face Cleanser. This retails for $24.

 

I bought this box on the memebox website, it may still be available.  If you would like to see an in-depth review of any of these products let me know!

Raspberry Crumb Cake | A Clothes Look

I’ve been on a meal prepping and schedule lately, I made this to enjoy for breakfast everyday and it’s delicious so I thought I would share!

recipe

 

Step one: Grease your pie pan and preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
Step 2: 

toppingitems

1/2 cup flour, 1/2 brown sugar and 3 tablespoons butter. 
Melt the butter (you can do this in the microwave with 20 second intervals or on the stove top)
While that is melting mix the brown sugar and flour together, once butter is melted pour that over the mixture and stir. 
toppingdone
Now set this bowl aside.

Step 3: 

topping

1 and 1/2 cups flour, 1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder,  1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix together, set aside.

Step 4: 

1

Mix together 8 tablespoons (1 stick) of room temperature butter with 3/4 cup sugar. 
When mixed add one egg, mix, add the other egg mix. 
2

Once both eggs are in the mixture, add about half of the flour mixture from earlier and mix.
Next, add your 1/2 cup of milk (I used vanilla almond milk) and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and mix.
Add the remaining flour mixture and blend completely.

Step 5: Spread into pie pan

Step 6: 
Add your raspberries onto the top of the unbaked cake.

And now add the very first mixture you did on top.

DSC_6248

 

I suggest putting this on a baking sheet to bake, as it might overflow a bit depending on the depth of your pie pan. 

Step 7: 
Bake for about 35-40 minutes until when you insert a toothpick it comes out clean. 

 

Step 8: 
Let cool and enjoy!

Step 9:
If you make this let me know if you like it, also hashtag aclotheslook with your instagram photo!

I think this will work for my skin.

Hope Girl 3D Powder Blusher

This blush is way too light for me and also has small flecks of glitter in it, it is a cool concept though. 

Sua Young Mein Sua Young Mineral Essence In Liquid Foundation

DSC_6280

This color is too light for my face but I believe it will do well as an under eye concealer, maybe….

 

I forgot one product that was also in the box, a tube of mascara called, Hope Girl Wonder Magic Mascara.

 

So that is all that was in my box, it was a total value of $160, and I had $30 on the box. Not bad, do you think you will give Memebox a try?

How To Fix It | A Clothes Look

While traveling or heck during every day clumsiness you may have drop a compact or two and shrieked as you picked it up as it was broken. Today I am showing you how I fixed my Nars blush in Luster after it crumbled, it may not be as beautiful anymore but it works wonderfully and is in one piece.

All you need is some rubbing alcohol, a knife or spoon of some type and your broken compact.

 

DSC_6225

 

 

To fix all of this you will a little rubbing alcohol (I used a cap in a half total) poured it on the blush and then with the plastic knife I chopped up the wet blush and attempted to smooth it down as much as possible.

DSC_6230

DSC_6228

This is directly after, I let it then sit open for two days to completely dry.

After two days my blush was dry (the alcohol evaporates) and I was left with this.

It may be ugly in the compact but it applies, pigmented and smooth, just like before.
