Beauty Hack: Liquid Lipstick As Eyeshadow

Save money with this simple trick.

Using liquid lipsticks as eyeshadow not only comes with the advantages of having longer-lasting and a more pigmented color but the bonus of saving money as well— You won't have to fight the urge to spend your paycheck on expensive eyeshadow pallets once you realize one product can double as two!

Ultra matte liquid lipsticks in some brands may be a bit too stiff, but non-transferable, drying lipsticks will work best (they won't budge and your hair won't get stuck in them every five seconds).

The metallic and blotted lips from ColourPop are my favorite because they fit that description and are super inexpensive at only $6 per tube! Because of this (and because I accidentally have way too many ColourPop lipsticks), I’ll be using the brand's liquid lipsticks for this article, but any liquid lipstick will do!

Anyone who buys from ColourPop knows that the way the lipstick colors appear on the company website are not how they appear in real life, so here are some real photos from real customers to help you get a proper idea of what the colors actually look like.

Of course, they'll appear differently on various skin tones but, for the most part, here are some ColourPop liquid lipstick swatches you'd never know aren't eyeshadow, compared to popular eyeshadow pallets from big name brands:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow

ColourPop Liquid Lips



Smashbox Eyeshadow

ColourPop Liquid Lips

Urban Decay Eyeshadow

ColourPop

With a special ColourPop collaboration coming to Sephora's online store and select Sephora stores, and similar liquid lipsticks available everywhere, this inexpensive beauty hack is so simple and right at your fingertips!


Pro tip: You can always apply a thin layer of transparent finishing powder on top of the lipstick if you feel like it's not setting.

10 Outfits Every College Girl Wears To Class At Least Once

You can thank me later.

It's happened on more than one occasion.

The occasion of being called out more than once for dressing down for class and by "down" I mean some of the haters we hate to love claiming that they can't see the shorts we're wearing under the oversized band tee on our way to class.

Contrary to popular belief, yes I'm not oblivious to how my choice of outfits for class tends to shift on the more comfortable side and yes, I am aware that it looks like I'm not wearing pants, I like it that way.

Every girl in college wears what they feel is comfortable enough to wear in a 2-hour lecture and these are my ideas of comfort.

1. The infamous oversized tee with Nike shorts.

I'll say it right now, I have a variety of assorted Soffee and Nike shorts that I pair with almost every oversized tee I own and it's my go-to for those 8 AM math lectures.

2. Oversized tee with leggings and riding boots.

Once the first red, yellow and orange leaf is found on campus grounds, you know you're about to see a swarm of college girls, like me, sporting riding boots in every shade of brown. Jeans optional.

3. Oversized tee with leggings and rain boots.

Once the first rainfall hits campus, you better believe you'll see this same 'fit paired with Hunter boots in almost every color.

4. The "I'm going to the gym right after class, I SWEAR" look.

Whether or not I have plans to go to the gym after class or not, I'm probably in my gym gear 4 times of the week and I'm not ashamed by it.

5. Jeans.

I've always had a hate/hate relationship with wearing jeans when I absolutely do not have to and here's why: they make my derriere completely disappear. When (and if) you catch me wearing jeans in lecture hall it's probably because someone paid me a large sum of money to do so.

6. Your boyfriend's flannel paired with... you guessed it, your favorite pair of leggings.

This is probably one of the many flannels I've stolen from my boyfriend and certainly not the last one. Paired with another favorite standard black leggings, you can't go wrong with this outfit to snooze in.

7. The baseball hat and quarter zip ensemble.

One of my all times favorites, you can't go wrong with a zipper up 3x too big for your body and a baseball hat you honestly forgot where you got it from. We also can't forget our infamous black leggings.

8. Your "walk of shame" outfit.

Now, this doesn't mean you roll up to Intro to Psychology wearing what you wore to the lacrosse mixer the night before, no. This is more of the outfit you so quickly had to throw on in a span of two minutes because you left so and so's apartment downtown an hour too late.

9. A v-neck.

Another one of my favorites.

10. Dresses (or anything even relatively formal).

Disclaimer: I personally would never come to class wearing this but gigantic kudos to cute a** girls that do decide to wear this because you look good.

Tips For A Young Adult Who Wants An Awesome Credit Score

You’re going to need it, so you might want to start building it.

Ah, the infamous credit score. Here you are, an emerging adult with no credit or bad credit. What do you do? You need a good credit score to do “adult" things. Unless you're a billionaire who pays everything in cash, but that's not me and it's probably not you either since you're reading this, you need to build a decent credit score. Here are a few tips I've learned to boost those numbers.

If you're good, and I mean penny-pinching, stingy money hoarding, only pay bills and buys the cheapest necessities good, you should consider a credit card.

Credit cards will get you into so much financial trouble so fast, but they do build credit. I recommend doing your research on some student credit cards. They offer lower interest rates and rewards for good grades and purchases on gas and things like that.

Only make purchases on your credit card that you have the cash in hand, or bank account, to pay off right then. Basically, use your credit card as an extension of your debit card. Set money aside for every one of your credit purchases in some sort of savings account specifically for your credit card to pay at the end of the month.

I've heard that keeping a small percent of what your credit limit is on your credit card will build great credit if you continue making monthly payments, but ALWAYS have the money to pay the whole sum of debt set aside. Never let your debt become unmanageable.

For those of you who have less self-control, go to the bank and tell them you are trying to build your credit score. Some banks will give you a small loan and place it directly into a savings account. They then will draw your monthly payments from that account. You never have the money, so you don't have the option to spend it.

THIS. I so wish I would have thought about this when I was first trying to build credit. You live and learn. Just sharing an awesome idea I was told about. I'm sure you might have to pay interest but it wouldn't be much and worth it not to go crazy in debt with a credit card.

This one is for the parents out there. Help your kid out and put their name on something you pay for.

Their first car. Even if you're making the payments they get some credit *pun intended* for your generosity. Maybe even add them to one of your credit cards but only if you're one of those “good" types that know how to use one to build great credit.


These are just a few ideas to help kick start the climb to great credit. Always be real with yourself and your spending habits. Be smart about purchases and your debts and always have the money to pay what you owe. Good luck!
