Why Everyone Deserves Fifteen Minutes!

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…]

Casually Glam with butter London

If you’ve read my last blog you’ll find that I’m starting to shift my nail polish collection into more long wearing nail polishes so as to save money in the long run. I recently un-boxed my butter London Glitz and Glam Set to find that there are three more polishes, a lippy and an eyeliner. That was a pleasant surprise that I got for making a purchase over $50.

There’s a new deal going on right now with a $50 purchase. Snag it here with promo CATWALKREADY. This deal has a $62 value so jump on it now while supplies last.

It was definitely worth it as I can say I got double the products for the price of one. This girl is not complaining!

Of course there’s not better way to show off my lipstick for the day than with a selfie. I haven’t actually worn the Snog liquid lipstick that came in the Glam Set yet because I want to save that for another post but for this particular day I chose to wear Teddy Boy Lip Crayon by butter London because it’s easily becoming my go to when I’m having a hard time finding a matching lipstick.

I did wear a top coat of the Lucy in the Sky over one of my other nail polished and I did like the finish of it. This photo was also taken like six days after I put it one because I wanted to see how long it lasted and it did not disappoint.

It’s Almost Cashmere Season

While many of us are still trying to enjoy the last few weeks of summer, I’m getting ready for fall. I’m excited for sweaters, flannels, leggings and of course lipstick. My new addition is Cashmere Silk Finish Lipstick by Wet n Wild.

Buy it here for $5.79.

This lipstick is definitely a more fall color I would say as it has more of a dark brown chocolate-y color that I don’t have in my current collection and that was all the reason I needed so I bought it.

As I applied it, off the bat it was very moisturizing, however I noticed that it had too much of a silky finish almost borderline metallic which wasn’t a problem really so I decided to just do one application of the lipstick because I wanted to keep that silk finish toned down.  It did give me a more mature look which honestly I don’t mind because I’m so used to wearing very vibrant and fun lipsticks. Overall, I though it was a great lip shade that I will be using down the road as fall creeps in.

What I love about Wet n Wild’s lipstick is that they’re very affordable and have a very wide shade range where you can always find something that appeals to you. I know that this shade has probably been around for a while because it was kinda hard to find online and since I live in a small town I’m thinking that they just send all the older shades to my little neighborhood store that’s why I always end up with them since I do a lot of makeup impulse buys there.

You can also buy a 3 pack for $7.40 since holiday season is coming up and share it with your family friends.

Bobbi Brown has made the list!

Hey guys,

I’m pretty sure most of you have heard of Bobbi Brown’s makeup line. It was definitely on my list for a very very long time and I’ve finally gotten the chance to try it. This was actually what my makeup artist put on me for my wedding lip and I fell in love with it. That will be a different blog post however, whenever I receive my wedding pictures.

It’s called English Rose from their Art Stick Liquid Lip collection which looks like a pinkish nude on my complexion almost like my Naturally Chic Lipstick by Milani that you can get here. It’s definitely a more safer shade I would say, meaning that it’s something that you could wear in an office or professional environment. It does slightly give off a little mature feeling to it. Other than that, it’s definitely a shade that you can easily wear from day to night.

It comes in a squeezable tube that can conveniently fit in a small clutch as it’s not bulky at all, which I love.I also found it very easy to apply. You know that sometimes liquid lipsticks can just feel too heavy and sticky, and with this one I found that it was very comfortable to wear, smooth and lightweight. It didn’t emphasize any dry patches or lines on my lips and had a creamy semi-matte finish that lasted for about 6-8 hours. The few times that I’ve worn it, I’ve never had to reapply so that’s a plus for me.

I’ve tried quite a few liquid lipsticks and this is one that I would highly recommend. You can purchase a deluxe sample here for $14.99 if you’ve you’re a newbie to Bobbi Brown like me and would like to give it a try or you can choose a regular sized product for $47.47 .

 

 

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.

The Lip Oil from the gods – butter London’s Lush Lip Oil

I am convinced that this product was sent from the gods of lip care. As a frequent lipstick wearer, and for extended hours at a time, my lips tend to suffer from dryness as well as peeling. Rough, dry and peeling lips is never sexy, especially under some matte lipstick! I do still routinely scrub and exfoliate my lips but sometimes I just need something more to lock in that moisture and I believe I’ve finally found it.

butter London’s Lush Lip Oil in the shade Ballet Blush is the business. I’ve never purchased any form of lip oil before and that’s why I was motivated to get this one. This lip oil is packed with so much healing benefits and awesome ingredients like chia seed oil, pear seed oil and green tea extract that leaves your lips fully moisturized for up to like 4 hours.

One negative may be the price point for some of us but at $22 it’s definitely worth every penny. Packaging and application is simple and super easy with just two pumps that gives you the perfect amount to fully cover your lips. It glides on smoothly with a sheer tint of color and most importantly it’s not sticky, I can’t stand a sticky lip gloss!

butter London- Teddy Boy Lip Crayon Review

Teddy Boy Lip Crayon – Get it Here. This shade is also on sale now for $10. Grab it while it lasts!

Butter London has been a brand on my list, and yes I do have a very long list, that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. As per usual, I’m always in search of a great lip product and came across the lip crayon in the shade Teddy Boy.

Butter London - Teddy Boy Lip Crayon

Firstly, I would like to mention that I enjoyed using Butter London’s site because they show you how the same product will look on women of different complexion so you could more or less have an idea of how their product is gonna look on you. That to me was very helpful and one of the main reasons why I’ll be back to shop on their site.

Butter London calls it the ‘3-in-1 formula’ as in it gives you the control of a lip liner, coverage of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss. I have to say that these claims have proven to be true.

The lip crayon comes with it’s own built in sharpener which is super convenient. It’s easy to line my lips with it and then fill it in. On my complexion the shade is like a nudish pink which I absolutely love. It almost has that same finish as my Naturally Chic lipstick from Milani. It has a creamy consistency with a slight gloss finish compared to Wet N Wild’s very matte Nudist Peach. It’s not to loud but just perfectly subtle but yet fun and flirty at the same time. Another plus is that this shade will match with almost anything in your wardrobe. It can go from the desk to happy hour in no time.

I honestly can’t wait to try more shades from them. There products are also formulated without harsh and toxic ingredients like parabens and mineral oil just to name a few, so you can be confident that you’re only applying safe ingredients to your skin.

Get Nude With Me – Wet n Wild Catsuit Nudist Peach Review

Hey guys,

This is another review under my Get Nude With Me series featuring Wet N Wild’s Megalast Catsuit liquid lipstick in the shade Nudist Peach. Also check out NYC Liquid Shine, Totally Toffee, Naturally Chic and Mixing and Matching Nudes.

There has been so much rave about this liquid lipstick that I had to find out for myself what kind of magic, if any, was stored in the tube.

Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit in Nudist Peach

Right off the bat, it has a very high end looking tube packaging with a wand applicator that allows you to easily glide on the lipstick. Wet N Wild claims this lipstick to have “Vivid Color”, “Ultra-Matte Finish” and “Comfortable Wear”.

When I first applied the lipstick, I have to say that the color and pigmentation was intense. I did have to wait for about 20 seconds for it to try before I applied my second coat. When the second coat was fully dried it did have a very dry and matte finish that did not budge. It is also kiss proof and transfer free. Way to go for a liquid lipstick that’s only 5 bucks!

As they claimed, the wear is very comfortable. It  doesn’t feel heavy on the lips at all. If I didn’t know any better I wouldn’t even have known that I was wearing lipstick. The formula that makes this lipstick super lightweight is definitely a winner.

I would say that the wear time is about average, 3 to 4 hours. My lips were even drier around that time and I noticed that dry patches were starting to show. It also doesn’t hold up very well after eating so I had to remove and apply a fresh coat and all was well with the world again.

Wet N Wild is definitely giving luxury brands a run for their money as the quality of the lipstick and of course the affordable price is something that can’t be beat.

The Cast Suit Mega last collection has a variety of colors and guess what? I’m just getting started!

Who else has tried the Catsuit collection? What color do you recommend I try? Give me some feedback in the comments and let PuckerUpBabe know.

Until next time XOXO.

 

 

Naturally Chic Lipstick Review

Hey folks,

I did a review on my last post about Sweet Nectar from Milani’s Color Statement Collection and today I’m reviewing the color Naturally Chic. If you’d like to know what I thought of this color then read on…

Naturally Chic is like a brownish pinkish neutral color that is meant to give you that subtle, natural look. It’s definitely not the color for you if you’re looking for something bright and bold. It’s meant to give you that effortlessly chic look that’s not too over the top. It’s a color that is definitely suitable for the office but will do just as well for cocktail hour at the bar. Get it on Amazon.

When I first opened the cap for this lipstick the first thing that I noticed was the smell. It had the most wonderful smell that was kinda fruity but not overwhelmingly so that it would turn you off.

It also had a very creamy finish and smooth texture that glide on easily. This lipstick was also very moisturizing compared to Sweet Nectar that had a matte finish that dried out the lips and settled on the dry patches. I did not get any of that with Naturally Chic. This lipstick does transfer, however, being that it’s not a matte, dry finish.

Like the rest of the other colors from her collection, Naturally Chic is only six bucks and for that price, it’s definitely worth it! This is gonna permanently have a space in my nudes and natural lipstick collection.
