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.
I’m not gonna lie, this is not the first time I’ve heard of Hard Candy or seen them in the drugstore. I’ve just never thought of taking a second look to actually purchase something until now and I have not regret it!
These are some of the smoothest liquid lipsticks that I’ve swiped on my lips and I’ve swiped a lot!
I purchased all New 7 Shades of the Cashmere Silk Demi-Matte Créme Lip Colors: Sorbet, Buttercream, Creme Broulee, Biscotti, Tartufo, Gelato and Macaron.
I’ve never convinced myself that I needed a lip plumping creme because first of all I, I think I was blessed with already full enough lips and second of all it’s hard to believe and trust in something from the drugstore that says it will enhance your lips.
However, I always low key wanted to try one though just to see if it actually worked. So here it goes…Read More »
Its undeniable that Maybelline is one of the oldest cosmetics company to ever exist and they have come a long way when it comes to perfecting their craft.
Maybelline’s Super Stay Matte Ink is the newest addition to my collection. I believe that there are 10 new shades to the collection and I purchased five of them that I thought would work best on my complexion. They retail at around $8.
The shades that I purchased are Protector, Visionary, Ruler, Fighter and Philosopher.
Okay, I’m not talking about fame or anything…if only right?
I’m talking about my new Wet N Wild lipstick in the shade 15 minutes Aflame. It’s definitely more on the girly side with a bright but creamy finish. For the price, this lipstick is one to consider. It’s rich and creamy formula easily glides on. It’s also a build-able lipstick but a little goes a long way. Let’s find out how it swatched…Read More »
By now most of you already know that I’m a frequent Milani lipstick user and I recently purchased the color Sweet Nectar from Milan’s Color Statement Collection to do a review, and I have to say that it’s popping! Get it on Amazon.
Milani describes it as being a bright orange but on my skin tone it’s more of a true orange, compared to my MAC’s Lady Danger which is like a coral orange with a matte finish. On lighter or fair skin tones it will probably look more like a bright orange.
This orange lipstick went on easily in one easy swipe. It’s a fresh and flirty color that will give all your other summer lipstick shades a run for their money. It’s creamy and very pigmented with a matte like finish. What I noticed throughout the day as my lips got dryer, since the lipstick is not very moisturizing, is that it settled on those dry areas which was kind of annoying. That happened after about 4 hours of wear, though, which to me is a decent time to remove and apply a fresh coat.
Guys, there are a ton of colors in this collection that you’ll be sure to find one that you like. So far I have the shade Naturally Chic, which I’ll do a review on later, and do plan on getting more shades. I always have a hard time choosing without buying everything so I settled for an orange shade just because it’s summer time and wanted a fresh new color to brighten my outfits. For six bucks a piece, I’m sure that you’ll be able to find an amazing color in the collection for yourself. You should check them out.
Who has tried a color from Milani’s Color Statement Collection? Give me some feedback and let PuckerUpBabe know.
Have you ever bought lipstick just because you thought it’s a shade that would look good on you? Well that’s what happened with this new lipstick purchase, Under My Spell by Rimmel London. So the truth is that I saw some amazing pictures on Pinterest with women wearing this lipstick and thought oh…so pretty but probably a little darker than what I usually wear but I bought it anyways because…who needs a reason to buy makeup?
Under My Spell is like a deep plum that you can of course layer depending on how dark you want it. I only put a couple layers on just because I wore it in the daytime and it was a beautiful and sunny day out and I didn’t want to cramp anyone’s style with my dark and Gothic lips. I have to say that I liked this lipstick on me but I didn’t love it. I guess it’s because I’m so use to wearing my fuchsias that this one seemed very foreign to me. I’ll definitely have to ease my way into wearing darker plums. It’s also not gonna be one of my everyday wear lipsticks just because it’s so dramatic even with a couple layers.
Apart from all that I did find that applying the lipstick was effortless. The lipstick bullet comes in a flat angled shape that made application super easy. It’s also very creamy and pigmented with a high impact color that lasts without drying out your lips.

You guys may have noticed from some of my past posts that I literally live in Milani. Not only is the packaging expensive looking but the quality of the product is great for being a drugstore brand lipstick.

Milani is also made in the USA so I know that the ingredients are gonna be safe on my lips compared to other brands that are made in a foreign country. I tend to pair the Matte Orchid and the Matte Diva with a lot of bright yellows and greens in my wardrobe. They just make everything pop.

I reserve the Matte Confident for my mostly neutral colors like grey, white, tan and black, but it pairs well with brownish, copper colored clothing as well.
