Essence Makeup Tint and Colour Shot

You’re Losing Money if You Haven’t Tried the Lip & Colour Shot from Essence

Essence is a fairly new brand to me as it’s not one that is often talked about on blogs and on YouTube so when I saw these on Ulta’s website I decided to try them out.

These are the Essence Tint & Colour Shot that were available in four different shades on the website: Pink Happiness, Classic Simplicity, Flowery Breeze and Powerful Perfection.

If you’re looking for a lip crayon that has the feel of a liquid lipstick then the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon might be the one for you.

What I love about lip crayons is that it doubles up as a lip liner and a lipstick in one which means there is a lot less hassle when it comes to application.

I picked up the three piece travel size at Sephora so I could get a decent sample of the shades and hopefully find one that will compliment my skin tone.

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.

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.

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 »

Go Bold or Go Bare | Bare Minerals Swatch and Review

It’s been a hot minute since I actually purchased a product from Bare Minerals.

As a matter of fact, the only thing I usually purchase from them is their mineral powder foundation because my skin seems to love that stuff.

Butter London Teddy Boy Lip Crayon

Butter London- Primrose Picnic Lip Crayon

Hey fellow bloggers and readers,

I have to admit that I’m glad to be back after taking off a month. If you’ve noticed that I’ve been MIA for a while that’s because I recently got married and was caught up in wedding planning and travelling. Now that that’s all over just been trying to get back to my lipstick hunting and weekly blogging.

Well you guys know that I love a good deal, especially if you’re someone like me who spends a lot on makeup. Butter London has been my secret obsession as of late. I’ve purchased their lip oil that I’m convinced was a God sent because it’s literally the best thing that has happened to my lips. And because I was very happy with that purchase, I had to go back and get other products, of course.

The good news is that Butter London is having a sale and that’s how I ended up buying more products. Click here to take advantage of that sale and reclaim your lipstick game! Since it’s a sale item, it may or may not be available but the lipstick version can be found on Amazon as well.

My most recent purchase is the Primrose Hill Picnic Lip Crayon as seen in the pic below:

It’s a very girly and flirty fuchsia-like shade on me. I really got a ton of compliments on this color as it is so vibrant and just lights up my entire face.

You can compare it to my first lip crayon purchase from Butter London in the shade Teddy Boy that is more of pinkish nude on my skin tone that I wear all the time now when I’m not trying to go too heavy on the makeup.

How Fucshia Lipsticks Can make Your Lips Speak Volumes

If you guys haven’t noticed, I’ve been wearing fuchsia lipsticks like there’s no tomorrow. I’ve mentioned this before in one of older posts that you can read here but fuchsia is like a grown and sexy version of pinks and reds combined that compliments and suits almost all skin tones and immediately brightens your complexion. With that said, and knowing that I’ve been on a fuchsia binge lately, my latest fuchsia buy is the shade Jet Setter by Lorac. Get it on Amazon.

This lipstick will stand out without you even trying, not because it’s vibrant but the depth that it also creates instantly draws attention to your face giving you that effortlessly glamorous look. This lipstick will surely be a winner as it can suit any woman, any look and any occasion. It’s definitely on my list of best fuchsia lipstick.

It is a highly pigmented deep fuchsia lipstick that goes on smoothly with lots of coverage and a creamy matte finish. The pigment and color on this lipstick was so intense that I didn’t even have to reapply it. It lasted me for an entire work day even with eating and drinking. It is at a higher price point, retails around $18, than most of my other lipsticks but I got it at a discounted price from from Glambot for only $15.30 This shade is currently sold out but you can check out the other shade that I’m interested in here called Lorac Alter Ego CEO. Get it on Amazon.
