You can check out the review on the Behind the Scenes Kit to see swatches of one the Line It Up lip liner and the Hi Matte liquid lipstick.

The lipsticks came in a very colorful box with each lipstick containing 0.12 oz.

The lipsticks all have that uniform navy color with that very soft to the touch packaging that gives you traction and allows for easy grip.

All the ultimatte lipsticks are only good for 6 months, unfortunately, so you’ll have to make sure that you use them up regularly.

All the lipsticks were highly pigmented and and had a slight candy like smell to them. They were also very creamy and easy to apply.

Knowing that these were selected by Pat McGrath, they make an awesome budget friendly set with great quality.

They are however, not the best long lasting lipsticks that I have tried. They do provide some type of moisture for being a matte lipstick but they also do transfer as well.

You’ll have to make sure that you carry it with you to reapply as needed throughout the day.

Both the Behind the Scenes Lip Kit and the Ultimatte Trio Kit contain the shade UM01.

Winky Lux Mini Lip Kit

Winky Lux Mini Lip Pill Kit

If you’re looking to try a variety of lipsticks before committing to a full size one then the Winky Lux Mini Lip Pill Kit is a great option.

The set comes in a beautifully packaged floral pink box with five of Winky Lux’s best selling lipsticks Meow, City, Royal, Heart and Pippy.

The net weight is .4g.

The set was purchased at Sephora for $16 which may be a bit steep for five little lipsticks that are a little more than half the size of my pinky finger.

I do have to say though that regardless of the size, these are some of the cutest lipsticks that I have ever seen.

Even though they are small, they definitely pack some pigment. Proof that great things come in small packages. 

Don’t forget how travel friendly these little pill lipsticks are. They are so small that they can practically fit anywhere!

The formula of these lipsticks is different from a lot of the lipsticks that I’ve tried and trust me I’ve tried many lipsticks.

It’s creamy with a matte finish but at the same time it is not a drying matte. It sits very comfortably on the lips in the softest kind of way.

Even if you don’t want the set for yourself, it will make a great gift idea for a lipstick lover.

 Meow

Nude pinks will always have a spot in my collection as they are always my back up plan for when everything else fails.

You can just never go wrong with a nude shade especially one that has a rosy finish.

Royal

Purple has always been a color associated with royalty and that is exactly what this shade exudes.

It’s not so much a deep purple nor is it an electric type purple. I’s jus the perfect shade that doesn’t make you look like you’re trying too hard.

We all know that shades of purple tend to be a universally flattering color so even if you’re a bit hesitant you should try it. You never know, you might end up buying the full size.

Heart

With all the amazing colors in this lip set, it would not be complete without a red shade. A good shade of red lipstick is a must have in every collection. I recently tried Pat McGrath’s Matte Trance in Elson and Stila’s Beso and they are amazing. This one from Winky Lux is great as well.

Red lipstick has always been and always will be a classic. It’s even better when it’s a comfortable and easy wear that does not smudge or budge.

Even if you’re not a frequent wearer of red lipstick, it’s always good to have on had for those special occasions so this little sample is perfect.

Though these lipsticks are minis, it is totally worth the cost because the quality is there. The rich pigment and the soft, velour formula is like none other. Grab it for yourself or gift it to someone. Either way it will be money well spent in my opinion.

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.

e.l.f. Liquid Matte Lipstick

e.l.f. Liquid Matte – Top Drugstore Lipstick?

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.

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.

NYX Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream

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.

Milani Matte Orchid


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.
