This Blog is Moving, Why?


Wanting a fresh start, moving from my old blog.... 


Now to be honest, I’ve been blogging on and off now for a few years. But you guys already now that.

You guys also know I’ve made around two or more blogs, (Kala pond), (For the love of glitter) and this one (Lions in lipstick) which was going very good from 2010-2015. But sadly I’ll be closing this one at the end of 2016 for a few different reasons on my part;

  • I placed myself in a box with naming it (lions in lipstick) which for a few years it worked awesome for me, as all I wanted to do at the time was blog about makeup, and beauty related topics. But overtime, I realized I had more to offer, and wanted to share some of my hobbies, and interest with everyone. And the name kind of stops me from doing so.

  • I got overwhelmed, as I was posting five or sometime even more a week. Pairing that with, work, hobbies, life, and volunteering, I found myself not really giving it my all, and slacking with bad posts, or having long gaps in-between posts.

  • I also will be changing my email to a more “adult” email/blog, and wanted to close this one. Unfortunately by closing it, any, and all pictures that is on my blog now, will be taken down from the blog. It doesn’t matter if I changed admins or not, it will stop showing up on the blog, for whatever reason. This is fine with me as I backed up all posts/pictures, and will be updating some of my older post, and re-posting them on the new one. It’s really just adding another step that’s about it.

  • I also just really wanted a fresh start. To new beginnings and all that, right. But hopefully you’ll join me on this new adventure on/at my new blog!

It’s not goodbye, just a see you later!

Love & Peace

My Top 10 Everyday Beauty Must Haves

Hey y’all,

Sorry I’ve been MIA I’ve been super busy and haven’t had the time to sit my butt down and post, but hopefully I’ll be back on track and posting a lot more, “ fingers crossed”  I have a lot of ideas to share with y’all, and I may even start a new category on my blog…

Y’all want to catch up with what I’ve been doing or just talk I’m on twitter and Instagram @HafsAR

Okay so here are my ten must have beauty products, they’re not in any order, I just random wrote them so…. Enjoy!  Also I’ll love to know what yours are, as I’m super nosey like that haha.

Revlon; Color Stay Foundation in 400 Caramel for Oily Skin
This foundation  has a lot of great reviews from a crap ton of people, it’s everything you heard and more, it has great coverage, that’s easy to build and blend with, all without looking cakey or fake, it’s light on the skin, it lasts for hours, and comes in two formulas for skin type; Oily & Dry. And you can pretty much buy it anywhere.

Jordana; Undercover Cream Concealer in 05 Sand Beige
If you’re looking for a cheap everyday concealer, this might be the one for you; I use it daily for a nature looking coverage, which blends great, without breaking the bank, only problem it’s kinda hard to find.

Sugarpill; Pressed Eyeshadow in Bulletproof
These is one of the blackest matte black pressed eyeshadow I’ve used, it’s smooth, and pigmented, and blends like butter,  90% of the time if I’m wearing or using a black eyeshadow it’s this one.

NYC ; Liquid Eyeliner in Black
I’ve been using this liner since I first started wearing makeup years ago, and even after all this time, I’m still in love, I’ve used plenty of different ones but I always reach for this one, the brush is easy to use for thin or thick lines, it dries fast and doesn’t move.

Beautique; Jumbo Lip Crayon in Blackberry
This became a most have by pure luck, I picked it up because I needed $2 more to get some deal, I can’t remember, but ever since three years ago, I’ve been re-buying it since, and every time I wear it, I always get complements, it looks great with most medium to darker skin tones, and with almost any look. It’s applies smoothly and sets great with little to no smudging.

Real Techniques; Miracle Complexion Sponge
Ever since I first picked this beauty sponge up, I haven’t put it back down! I pretty much use it on a daily bases ever since. I use it mostly for my liquid foundation, concealer, and blending all my face products. Its shape is different than most beauty sponges out there, making it easy to use with all the contours of the face

Almay; One Coat Dial up Mascara in Black
I’ve use a crap ton of different mascaras, high and low end ones, and this one is still may favorite so far, yes I like other ones, but there is just something about this one that keeps me coming back time after time, maybe it’s because it gives you the choice to choose from how much product you want, and what look your going for. The only thing that’s a downer is that it’s a pain to find in stores

MAC; Eyeshadow in Texture
This eyeshadow is in almost all my looks, it’s perfect for my skin color, I use it for a highlight, blending color, transition colors, or just by itself when I want to slap on some eyeliner, this one never lets me down, and always gets the job done.

E.L.F; Ultimate Blending Brush
This is a new must have for me as I only been using it for a few weeks now, but I can honestly tell you it works wonders, and for the price you can’t go wrong, I’ve been using it for blending face products, buffing, applying powders, applying blush, bronzer, and touch ups.

Urban Decay; 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Perversion
This eyeliner is bea, like really I’m in love with it no joke. You want a matte black liner that’s noting going to budge or flake on you this is it. It may cost a lot but it’s worth every cent, and glides on like a dream.

Peace & Love <3
