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.

Get The most Bang for your Buck with NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

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.

But that’s about to change……Read More »

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.

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.

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.

Milani’s Matte Orchid

Everyone has been raving about fuchsia lipsticks this season and here on my list again is Milani’s Matte Orchid, an intense pink shade of flirty fun. It’s very inexpensive and has a “moisture matte” finish to it that makes it not as drying as my Flat Out Fabulous by MAC. It lasts for about five hours on my lips and still leaves a stain after you take it off so you might need a little lip scrub for complete removal.

I’ve really been into Milani products lately and I’m very excited to see what they come up with next. Their colors seem to really compliment my skin tone which will definitely make me a returning customer, plus I think the packaging of their lipsticks is very sexy with the reflective gold finish. Let me know what your favorite makeup line is by sharing your comments below. Puckers to you xoxo.

Fuchsia Fetish – Best Fuchsia Lipstick

Fuchsia lipsticks have been one of my signature lip shade for 2014 and will definitely be on my holy grail list for this year. Fuchsia is like a purple-ish, pink-ish color that is universally flattering on women of every color. If you’re thinking about giving bold colored lipsticks a try and not sure which shade to start with then a purple-ish shade is definitely the way to go.

To achieve this look I applied Milani’s Fuchsia Lip Liner to line and fill my lips. I always use a lip liner when wearing lipsticks because not only does the lip liner act as a guide so that my lipstick doesn’t go outside of the ‘lip zone’ but it also helps with keeping your lipstick vibrant throughout the day. The lipstick I used is Flat Out Fabulous by MAC. It’s a retro matte shade and it lasts all day long.

You should always apply some chap stick or lip balm before you apply your lipstick because matte lipsticks have a very dry finish. If you’re not a fan of matte lipsticks then you might want to search for a more creamier texture that won’t dry out your lips. There was never a need to reapply my lipstick and that’s why this is one of my favorite lipsticks because it will last me for months at a time. Try it out and let me know what you think. Puckers to you xoxo.
