There are times when I get that feeling that I need to try something new, more often than I would like, but I have been itching lately to try Huda Beauty and so it began…

You’ve probably noticed that like mine, your Instagram feed is probably flooded with Huda Beauty makeup pictures from beauty gurus so yes, I’ve been thinking about Huda Beauty lately.

I finally realized that it was probably a sign from the gods for me to get the lipsticks and Huda Beauty walked into my life!

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.

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.

Sweet Nectar by Milani

Oh Sweet Nectar!

Hey guys,

By now most of you already know that I’m a frequent Milani lipstick user and I recently purchased the color Sweet Nectar from Milan’s Color Statement Collection to do a review, and I have to say that it’s popping! Get it on Amazon.

Milani describes it as being a bright orange but on my skin tone it’s more of a true orange, compared to my MAC’s Lady Danger which is like a coral orange with a matte finish. On lighter or fair skin tones it will probably look more like a bright orange.

This orange lipstick went on easily in one easy swipe. It’s a fresh and flirty color that will give all your other summer lipstick shades a run for their money. It’s creamy and very pigmented with a matte like finish. What I noticed throughout the day as my lips got dryer, since the lipstick is not very moisturizing, is that it settled on those dry areas which was kind of annoying. That happened after about 4 hours of wear, though, which to me is a decent time to remove and apply a fresh coat.

Guys, there are a ton of colors in this collection that you’ll be sure to find one that you like. So far I have the shade Naturally Chic, which I’ll do a review on later, and do plan on getting more shades. I always have a hard time choosing without buying everything so I settled for an orange shade just because it’s summer time and wanted a fresh new color to brighten my outfits. For six bucks a piece, I’m sure that you’ll be able to find an amazing color in the collection for yourself. You should check them out.

Who has tried a color from Milani’s Color Statement Collection? Give me some feedback and let PuckerUpBabe know.

Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lipstick in "Boudoir"

Calling All Velour Lovers

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.

The 4 Best Things about Spring 2017

Now that Spring has sprung the fashion runway has graced us with some of the hottest lip shades of the season. It’s time to pack up your neutrals and unleash the attention grabbers from your collection. Here are some of the lip shades that have been causing a frenzy this season:

1.Orange

This is a fun and vibrant shade that is bold, bright and loud. It just screams ‘welcome spring’ and looking forward to summer. For darker skin tones, you want to stick with a red orange and lighter skin tones a more peachy orange. Get it on Amazon.

2. Fuchsia

This is definitely a shade that is more flirty and playful. The purplish-pink tones will compliment any skin tone as purple is known to be a universally flattering color. This is a shade that almost all women will already have in their lipstick collection so don’t be afraid to sport it. I, myself, have quite a few that fall under this category. Don’t judge me!

Get it on Amazon.

3. Plum

Now, there are different shades to plum, the darker and mysterious shade and the lighter shades which I would say looks similar to a fuchsia but with less pink, if you know what I mean. It’s electrifying and would instantly take your look to a whole nother level.

Get it on Amazon.

4. Red

And last but definitely not least, the shade red. Well did you think we would leave this classic off the list? Shame on you! We all know that red is here to stay and it would be a crime if it was forgotten. Matte red seemed to be the dominant shade this season. It’s a very responsive shade that automatically commands attention. Every woman should possess a tube of red lipstick, even if not for everyday wear, for those special occasions where you wanna make a powerful statement. Get it on Amazon.
