Holiday Glam Makeup | #agapelovegirl4luxepineapple LE Collection!

Hey Beauty babes!! Thank you SO much for visiting with me today, I am more excited than usual because today I get to tell you about a special Limited Edition Holiday Collection of Makeup that I curated with Luxe Pineapple!!! If you follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed I posted a teaser mention of something in the works with Luxe Pineapple. Its such an honor to partner with a brand to create a collection, what fun too - I got to pick the products colors and names too. The items in collection were put together to help you create a bold, sultry, glam look for your Holiday Parties and get togethers! So the names I picked for each item reflect that. I am beyond thrilled today to finally get to show off the #agapelovegirl4luxepineapple Holiday collection to you! ♥
This Limited Box is JUST $20 (while supplies last) but is Valued at $65.50!

Each box will include:
LuxePineapple Collection Cream Lipstick in 'Pink Truffle', Luxe Eye Shadows in 'Uncorked', 'Merlot' and 'Caviar', Luxe Blush in 'Macaroon' and a BONUS Item: Timeless Truth Bio Cellulose Hydra-Soothing Moisturizing Mask!

Of course I am wearing all the products from this collection in today's "Holiday Glam" Makeup look, so you can get an idea of how they look on. ♥ Ive also got swatches below - This is a very photo heavy post because I wanted to be as thorough as possible!
Create a gorgeous smokey and sultry Holiday look with this special collection! ♥
Get an up close and personal look at the eye shadows and the blush being worn in the photo above! And simple swatches in the photos below.... Since the shadows are VERY dark and smokey, I wanted the blush and lipstick to be very neutral and wearable for anyone and everyone. While the blush - Macaroon - looks very light, it can definitely be built up for more color pay off. Its a nice peachy-pink with a beautiful subtle sparkle. Its the type of shade that I think will flatter any skin tone.
As I already said - the shadows are very bold and smokey - however they can and will apply more sheer if applied alone. A single finger or brush swatch on bare skin will give you more of a sheer color. And if you use a primer/base first or wet your brush before applying the shadows, you will get a much richer more pigmented color that looks absolutely gorgeous!
The lipstick Pink Truffle is neutral pinky-brown shade that's another one of those "universal" colors. I truly believe this is a shade that will look great on everyone. It will look different on each person - depending on skin tone - so for some it may be a dark neutral shade, to others it may be a "my lips but better" shade, for me its right in between those two! ;) Its just a gorgeous lipstick that can be worn on the daily or paired with a bold eye look without making you feel like you have "too much" going on.
While I love the shade on its own, I absolutely LOVE topping lipsticks with gloss for more juicy looking lips and a slight shift in color! So I decided to pair Pink Truffle with a NEW Luxe Pineapple Collection gloss, called Sweetheart, that will be releasing in the near future! Here is what that looks like:
I absolutely LOVE this combination - I think its my NEW favorite lippie combo! ♥
Alright loves - that's it! What do you think of the collection!? I am SO beyond thrilled about this collection and feel so blessed and honored to have been able to curate it with such a wonderful brand as Luxe Pineapple!! ♥ Let me know if you decide to purchase it - be sure to share your photos and looks with me and use the hashtag #agapelovegirl4luxepineapple so that I can check them out and feature you too! ♥

NEW MBA Cosmetics Lippies + Discount Code!

Hey beauty babes - just wanted to pop in real quick to share some swatches of the new Lippies from MBA Cosmetics. They already have a VAST selection of lippies... Basically just about ANY color you are looking for - they have it! And just about any type of lipstick you may want - matte, creamy, lip paint, lip glaze, liquid lipstick... You Name it - they have it! If you are a lipstick lover - look no further than MBA Cosmetics! ♥ And of course you can use my code AGAPELOVE15 which saves you 15% on any and every purchase you make. ♥

Recently they have had to discontinue a few shades due to a certain colorant used to create them, that is no longer available. So they have come out with these similar shades to replace the ones being discontinued. Color Rich Lipstick Taupetone, Color Rich Lipstick Truffle, HD Lip Paint Belissimo and HD Lip Paint Chic Brick. See below for site descriptions and swatches!!

Oh and before we get started, for anyone curious about the difference between the MBA Cosmetics Color Rich Lipsticks & HD Lip Paints...

First up is Color Rich Lipstick in Taupetone!
This one is a very cool toned brown and is described on the website as a light/medium taupe brown.

Next up is Color Rich Lipstick in Truffle.
This one is perfectly described as a deep chocolaty brown with a red undertone!

Next is my FAVORITE of the New Lippies. This is HD Lip Paint in Bellissimo!
Site description: a gorgeous deep wine/burgundy shade.
Yes indeed it is! The perfect shade for Fall and Winter! ♥

Lastly we have HD Lip Paint Chic Brick.
 Chic Brick is described as a brick brown/red shade - a very accurate description.

Last thing I'd like to leave you with is this helpful graphic about MBA Cosmetics Lipstick Packaging options. Many dont know but you can actually purchase their lipsticks and lip paints in a typical tube, a slim tube or in a jar. I love that they do this because it allows you to purchase by price and/or preference. The Slim Tubes are just $5 (12 oz of product), The Jars are just $5.50 ( 16 oz of product) and the regular tube option is the $7.50 (16 oz of product). The reason the regular tubes are a bit more expensive is because of the extra time and effort it takes to mold and package them versus the other options!
I personally love the slim tube option - with as many lippies as I own, I never feel the need to own a FULL size, unless its a favorite! I also think the jar option is nice if you prefer applying your lipstick with a brush. Or if you are an MUA who depots lipsticks anyways, for your kit. Anyways, I hope you found this info helpful! Let me know what you think of the new lippies - which is your favorite?

Oh and P.S. All the Septum Rings shown in these photos are actually Faux Septums and are also from MBA Comsetics! Find them {here}.
