Zara Behind the Scenes Kit

Zara Behind the Scenes Lip Kit

As mentioned in one of my previous posts, Zara just launched a new makeup collection that has got everyone excited, including me. So when you go shopping for clothes make sure to pick up a couple makeup items because Zara is starting to look like a one stop beauty shop and I’m living for it.

The collection was also hand picked by world talented makeup artist, Pat McGrath herself which made me want to try the collection even more. If I can get the same quality as Pat McGrath’s lipsticks for a more budget friendly price then I’m all in.

The collection features creamy bullet shaped matte lipsticks as well as liquid lipsticks and lip pencils.

I purchased two of the lip kits Behind the Scenes as well as the Ultimatte Trio which I will be reviewing at a later time.

The Zara Behind the Scenes Kit contains a lip liner L02, an Ultimatte Lipstick UM01 and a liquid lipstick in the shade M11.

The bundle came in a beautiful navy colored tin like can that was unique and high end looking. I like that this container can also be used to store other things down the road or for decorative purposes.

Zara’s brand is known for simplicity and I like that when it came to the packaging, the simplicity was reflected in that as well.

The lip products were all neatly packed inside a mold so they could not move around. Behind the container was more of a description about the lipsticks included as well as the ingredients, net weight and the shelf life which is unfortunately 6 months.

Everything was luxurious about the packaging including the lipstick containers. They were very soft to the touch almost like a high quality rubber which also allowed for easy gripping.

Zara Line It Up Lip Liner L02

This is a satin lip liner that is very soft and creamy.

The shade of the entire set is like a rosy brown nude color. At least that is how it swatched on my skin tone which I have to say complimented it really well.

Zara Ultimatte Lipstick UM01

What I love about the kit is that it eliminates the guess work. Everything in the kit worked well with each other. You can use the lip liner under both the lipstick as well as the liquid lipstick.

The lipstick container is soft to the touch with a magnetic lid that tightly snaps on so that your lipstick is secured and you don’t have to ever worry about your lid coming off.

The lipstick is of similar shade to the lip liner and has a candy smell to it.

I also did notice that there were little bits of condensation or water droplets on the lipsticks which could’ve probably come from the ingredients. 

The color looked like it had a tad bit more pink to it but still gorgeous.

Zara Hi Matte Liquid Lipstick M11

The liquid lipstick did not have any scent at all compared to the delicious candy smell Ultimatte lipstick.

This one again is in the same color range.

I do have to say that this liquid lipstick was also very creamy and made the application easy. The doe foot applicator picked enough product to give you full coverage with one swipe but I did layer mine multiple times to get the full impact.

Overall the kit is very helpful especially for someone who is just getting into wearing lipsticks. There’s absolutely nothing to figure out about the kit because everything compliments each other.

What I also love about the kit is that the shade will be fitting to most skin tones. It’s a fun nude with a little pops of mauve and pink.

If you’re thinking about trying out Zara’s new makeup collection I highly recommend it. The quality is amazing and the price is unbeatable.

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.

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint in Unveil & Uncuffed

Rihanna definitely had a vision when she released four new shades of the Stunna Lip Paint Collection. These nude browns and that wild card black lipstick have everyone in a frenzy.

The theme of the packaging is very consistent to the look of the website with that rebel black font and design. The mood of it just screams Rihanna.

If you’re looking for a lip crayon that has the feel of a liquid lipstick then the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon might be the one for you.

What I love about lip crayons is that it doubles up as a lip liner and a lipstick in one which means there is a lot less hassle when it comes to application.

I picked up the three piece travel size at Sephora so I could get a decent sample of the shades and hopefully find one that will compliment my skin tone.

Flesh Beauty Fleshy Lipsticks

Fleshy Lips Lipstick?

Even though it’s gonna be hard for me to kick my love for matte lipsticks, I do have to say that once it a while it feels very refreshing to swipe on a creamy, moisturizing lipstick that leaves your lips feeling pillowy soft.
