e.l.f. Liquid Matte Lipstick

e.l.f. Liquid Matte – Top Drugstore Lipstick?

I’ve tried quite a few drugstore lipsticks but el.f. wasn’t one of them.

My usual purchases from e.l.f include brushes, contour and blush set as well as their lip balms and lip exfoliators so yeah, I have to admit that to me it’s a decent drugstore brand as I frequently purchase their products.

New to my list of e.l.f products is their liquid matte lipsticks. They come in eleven different shades and I purchased four of them online from Ulta.

It’s about that time of the year when the summer heat just sucks the moisture out of your lips and you’re making an extra effort not to have lizard lips.

That alone should be reason enough why not to leave your house without a gloss.

New to my list of lip glosses is the high shine lip gloss, Stay Glossy,  from Rimmel London.

10 Best Nude Lipsticks that Won’t Make you Look Like a Corpse

Like many, finding the right shade of nude lipstick is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Pretty much near impossible. At one point they even had us checking out or nipples for the right shade. That’s how serious this nude lipstick situation has become.

The cosmetics industry has come a long way when it comes to perfecting a nude shade that will compliment most skin tones. I’ve created a list of my favorite nude lipsticks that weren’t necessarily perfect but got pretty close.

10 Nude Lipsticks that won’t make you look like a Corpse!

We all know of those nude lipsticks that make us look like we just walked out the cemetery but the choices from this list did everything but that. Some may need a little bit more tweaking  than others with some lip pencils but these worked out great for me.

Boxycharm June 2018 - Caribbean Queen

Boxycharm June 2018 | Caribbean Queen

It’s such a shame that the surprise element of me opening my June Boxycharm was taken away as the spoilers just flooded my Instagram feed and it was over for me.

Obviously, keeping the contents of the box on the down low is asking for the impossible as subscribers, including myself, are usually more than anxious to know what the surprise is.

So to all those subscribers who published the contents of their Boxycharm before I got mine, don’t tell me you’re sorry because your not!

Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipstick

Metallic Madness | Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipsticks

One drugstore brand that cannot be shook and has continued to change the makeup game is Wet n Wild. Some of my all time favorite lipsticks are from wet n wild, like the shade Nudist Peach.

Their liquid catsuit collection has been a favorite among many makeup lovers that they had since release the same shades in a metallic version and those have also been very popular.

I’m telling you it’s hard not to love them. It’s like a revamped version of the already stunning shades but a little more fun and flirty.

NYX Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream

Get The most Bang for your Buck with NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

I thought that there was no drugstore lipstick that could make me feel this way, but after trying these metallic lipsticks from NYX, I was like WHOA!

The power of the pigment in these lip creams had me shook.

Back in the day when my coins were scarce, they’re still scarce now but back then they were a lot more scarce,  NYX was one of my favorite makeup brands but somehow I got into the hype of trying other brands and I slowly forgot about them.

But that’s about to change……Read More »

Fenty Beauty Beach Please Collection

Stay Beachy like Rihanna! Beach, Please! Collection Lip Gloss Swatch.

So I thought I was over the holo lipstick and lip gloss trend until Rihanna dropped her Beach, Please! collection!

This limited edition collection includes three killawatt foil highlighter duos, two island bling liquid eye shimmers and of course the one that got me all shimmered and bothered is her Summer Daze and Summer Nights lip gloss collection.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick Set

NEW Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipstick Set

The story goes that ABH is on top of the list when it comes to makeup so of course I wanted to investigate for myself.

I have actually tried ABH in the past and I have to admit that their makeup is a force to be reckoned with. I tried their summer lip gloss set and I was very happy with them. The colors were absolutely gorgeous and I still frequently wear them to this day.

I recently picked up the Mini Matte Lipstick Set at Sephora a few weeks back because I wanted to see if they were as good as the lip gloss.
