Pat McGrath Labs Mini MatteTrance Trio

Pat McGrath is one of the most well known makeup artist in the world and her makeup is like a prized possession for many.

When Pat McGrath lipsticks became available in minis I jumped at the opportunity and got myself a pack of the Colour Blitz Mini Matte Trance. One of her lipsticks go for $38 so I was shook when I saw that she had minis available for $25. That was definitely a steal for me.

Lipsticks I Wore in a Week

Lipsticks are one of the biggest selling beauty products of all time. It’s also one of the first things that we notice our mothers wear as kids which is why lipsticks are one of the beauty products that first peeks our interest as teens.

As a young girl, this was one of the things that I noticed my mom would always wear and I know for sure that’s where my obsession first started.

Like many people, you will never catch me without any lip product in my purse. Even if it’s just a lip balm. I notice that I do a pretty good job of switching through my lipsticks. I cycle through long lasting mattes, glosses and creamy lipsticks.

Must Have Fall Lipsticks to Buy Right Now

As the Fall days continue to get brisk and gloomy, sometimes it makes sense for us to match the mood of the day with our makeup but for many of us, a black lipstick might just be a bit too much and intimidating.

It might seem like a challenge to transition your collection season to season but it’s quite easier than you think. Many of us feel comfortable just sticking to our safe nude colors but breaking out the browns, burgundies and purples are a great way to make a statement.

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.

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 theirĀ 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.
