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 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.
As you all may already know, I’m a lipstick lover and use lipsticks as a way to complete my look…you know…like a cherry on top of the cake, you get the point.We can all also agree that it’s a challenge and even next to impossible find that one lipstick that delivers in every way. I’ve tried so many lipsticks and found a few reasons why matte lipsticks could land a spot in your collection for years to come.Read More »
It can be a pretty scary thought when it comes to buying makeup and lipstick only to realize that it wasn’t what you expected to be. Many of us don’t have confidence in cheaper brands just because they usually turn out to be a waste of money. Read More »
I finally got my hands, or should I say my lips, on one of Laura Mercier’s lipsticks from her Velour Lovers Collection in the shade Boudoir. This can range from a fuchsia to like a deep berry color depending on how many layers you put on. On my dark skin tone it definitely looked more fuchsia, like most of my other lipsticks…but hey I’ve always got room for more fuchsia.
I have to say that this lipstick is luxuriously creamy and just immaculately glides on your lips. It must be the nourishing mango butter used that also makes it feel more like a lip balm. Can I say lipstick heaven?
It’s also highly pigmented with a long lasting wear and a satin matte finish ( I never thought I could use those two words to describe a lipstick), we all know how matte finishes can be sometimes, like paper, but beauty is pain so I’m not complaining.
Have any of you tried Laura Mercier’s Velour Collection? Give me some feedback in the comments below and let PuckerUpBabe know.
