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.

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.

Shayla X Colourpop Collab Lip Swatch

There’s something I want to yell you! If you guys haven’t found out already Colourpop’s latest collab is with beauty blogger Makeup Shayla and it’s definitely looking like it’s worth reviewing.

I also did a review on the recent Ellarie Colourpop collection that you can check out.

They teamed up to do a makeup collection that included an eyeshadow palette, two highlighters, three Lux Lipsticks and a Lip Gloss.

Smashbox Fully Nude Lip Trio

Get Nude With Me | Smashbox Fully Nude Lip Trio

I tried that looking at your nipple thing to find your perfect nude shade and that didn’t do it for me so I’m back to doing things the old fashioned way.

Trying on a million and one nude lipstick until I find a winner.

I wish I had that super power of knowing if a nude lipstick would work for me without trying them first because as of late, I’ve been through several nude lipsticks that I purchased that I had to kick to the curb.

Not really! I’m not wasting my money like that.

You best believe that I will do everything in my power to make that nude lipstick that’s ten shades lighter than me work before I resort to throwing it out.

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.

Mixing and Matching Nude Lipsticks

Processed with VSCO with s3 preset

So I’ve been trying to hold off on buying new lipsticks for a while until I can use up what I already have. With that said, I can get bored with wearing the same lipsticks quick so I’ve been trying different ways to make wearing my old lipsticks more fun.

Okay, so let’s get to it. I wore my Milani Matte Confident 67 and wanted it to be of a little lighter shade so I applied a topcoat of my Maybelline Totally Toffee 215 which lightened it up and resulted in a slightly brownish nude lip color. It was a completely new lip shade and it was totally free.

Not only does this help me to keep some change in my pocket, it’s fun and exciting to see what new shades your old lipsticks can bring forth.

Leave a comment and let me know what shades you’ve combined.

I received this fabulous Rimmel London Lip Velvet – 307 Meteoric Matte lip stain in a beauty box subscription and I thought I’d share. I’ve been using it for the past couple of weeks to test how long it lasts and I must say that the vibrancy of the color does last for up to 8 hours. Naturally, there will be some fading but in my opinion even with the little fading it was still popping.

I am very satisfied with the finish of this product on my lips as well. It’s not sticky or gunky and has a velvety finish. I did however, experience some dryness but that’s because of the matte finish. Nothing a little lip balm before application can’t fix. You can go about with your normal day eating and drinking and not having to reapply for up to eight hours.

This is also a perfect lip stain just in time for Thanksgiving and the holidays for those who are not yet comfortable flaunting bold red lips. This is a perfect substitution color that universally flatters every skin tone.

Puckers to you xoxo.

I got this e.l.f. Lip Stain on impulse buy, which happens to me more than I would like, because I thought the name sounded really cute, so the swatch must be amazing and sure enough, like many times before, I was very disappointed with this product. Firstly, I would start with the pros and those are that it was affordable and the pointy pen-like tip made application very easy for a sleek, smudge free lip.

I hated everything else about this lip stain. It was very dry from the minute I opened it and applied it to my lips. I also tried to wet the tip a little bit so that the product would come out. Eventually, that helped out a little and was able to get some color on my lips. The color was not vibrant at on my lips. I needed the shade to be a little brighter because I thought it washed me out. Then, it only lasted for about an hour and a half before the color started disappearing. I will not be buying this product again. I still, however, do enjoy a few products from e.l.f. and my Lip Exfoliator is one of them.

My No Make Up Nude Lip with NYX Riverside Rose Lip Crayon

So it has always been hard for me to find the perfect nude lip that will go great with my complexion and won’t let me look sick or washed out. My current nude lipstick buy is by NYC in the shade Riverside Rose. It’s actually a lip crayon and it looks like a nude pink on my lips. I’ve been a little lazy about wearing make up lately and when that happens, I just put on a little face moisturizer and of course a cute nude lip color.
When I first applied this lip crayon I put it on my bare lips and it was just really dry and unpleasant looking which is a definite no no when it comes to my lips. For my second attempt, I glided on some of my e.o.s. lip balm before and then added the lip crayon which made the look and feel a thousand times better. I am very pleased with the results now and will definitely be wearing this lip crayon more often. What’s your favourite nude lip color? Share your comments below. Puckers to you xoxo.
