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.

Shayla X Colourpop Collab Lip Swatch

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.

And of course, the part of the collection that I was mostly interested in is the lip products because I’m a lipstick junkie!

I purchased all three of her Lux Lipsticks and the Lip Gloss and well…you’ll have to keep reading to find out my thoughts on these…..

Smashbox Fully Nude Lip Trio

Get Nude With Me | Smashbox Fully Nude Lip Trio

I tried that looking at your nipple thing to find your perfect nude shade and that didn’t do it for me so I’m back to doing things the old fashioned way.

Trying on a million and one nude lipstick until I find a winner.

I wish I had that super power of knowing if a nude lipstick would work for me without trying them first because as of late, I’ve been through several nude lipsticks that I purchased that I had to kick to the curb.

Not really! I’m not wasting my money like that.

You best believe that I will do everything in my power to make that nude lipstick that’s ten shades lighter than me work before I resort to throwing it out.

Go Bold or Go Bare | Bare Minerals Swatch and Review

It’s been a hot minute since I actually purchased a product from Bare Minerals.

As a matter of fact, the only thing I usually purchase from them is their mineral powder foundation because my skin seems to love that stuff.

Butter London - Teddy Boy Lip Crayon

butter London- Teddy Boy Lip Crayon Review

Teddy Boy Lip Crayon – Get it Here. This shade is also on sale now for $10. Grab it while it lasts!

Butter London has been a brand on my list, and yes I do have a very long list, that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. As per usual, I’m always in search of a great lip product and came across the lip crayon in the shade Teddy Boy.

Firstly, I would like to mention that I enjoyed using Butter London’s site because they show you how the same product will look on women of different complexion so you could more or less have an idea of how their product is gonna look on you. That to me was very helpful and one of the main reasons why I’ll be back to shop on their site.

Butter London calls it the ‘3-in-1 formula’ as in it gives you the control of a lip liner, coverage of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss. I have to say that these claims have proven to be true.

The lip crayon comes with it’s own built in sharpener which is super convenient. It’s easy to line my lips with it and then fill it in. On my complexion the shade is like a nudish pink which I absolutely love. It almost has that same finish as my Naturally Chic lipstick from Milani. It has a creamy consistency with a slight gloss finish compared to Wet N Wild’s very matte Nudist Peach. It’s not to loud but just perfectly subtle but yet fun and flirty at the same time. Another plus is that this shade will match with almost anything in your wardrobe. It can go from the desk to happy hour in no time.

I honestly can’t wait to try more shades from them. There products are also formulated without harsh and toxic ingredients like parabens and mineral oil just to name a few, so you can be confident that you’re only applying safe ingredients to your skin.

Has anyone tried a product from Butter London? Leave me some feedback and let PuckerUpBabe know in the comments below.

Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit in Nudist Peach

Get Nude With Me – Wet n Wild Catsuit Nudist Peach Review

Hey guys,

This is another review under my Get Nude With Me series featuring Wet N Wild’s Megalast Catsuit liquid lipstick in the shade Nudist Peach. Also check out NYC Liquid Shine, Totally Toffee, Naturally Chic and Mixing and Matching Nudes.

There has been so much rave about this liquid lipstick that I had to find out for myself what kind of magic, if any, was stored in the tube.

Right off the bat, it has a very high end looking tube packaging with a wand applicator that allows you to easily glide on the lipstick. Wet N Wild claims this lipstick to have “Vivid Color”, “Ultra-Matte Finish” and “Comfortable Wear”.

When I first applied the lipstick, I have to say that the color and pigmentation was intense. I did have to wait for about 20 seconds for it to try before I applied my second coat. When the second coat was fully dried it did have a very dry and matte finish that did not budge. It is also kiss proof and transfer free. Way to go for a liquid lipstick that’s only 5 bucks!

As they claimed, the wear is very comfortable. It ¬†doesn’t feel heavy on the lips at all. If I didn’t know any better I wouldn’t even have known that I was wearing lipstick. The formula that makes this lipstick super lightweight is definitely a winner.

I would say that the wear time is about average, 3 to 4 hours. My lips were even drier around that time and I noticed that dry patches were starting to show. It also doesn’t hold up very well after eating so I had to remove and apply a fresh coat and all was well with the world again.

Wet N Wild is definitely giving luxury brands a run for their money as the quality of the lipstick and of course the affordable price is something that can’t be beat.

The Cast Suit Mega last collection has a variety of colors and guess what? I’m just getting started!

Who else has tried the Catsuit collection? What color do you recommend I try? Give me some feedback in the comments and let PuckerUpBabe know.

Until next time XOXO.

 

 

Milani Naturally Chic Lipstick

Naturally Chic Lipstick Review

Hey folks,

I did a review on my last post about Sweet Nectar from Milani’s Color Statement Collection and today I’m reviewing the color Naturally Chic. If you’d like to know what I thought of this color then read on…

Naturally Chic is like a brownish pinkish neutral color that is meant to give you that subtle, natural look. It’s definitely not the color for you if you’re looking for something bright and bold. It’s meant to give you that effortlessly chic look that’s not too over the top. It’s a color that is definitely suitable for the office but will do just as well for cocktail hour at the bar. Get it on Amazon.

When I first opened the cap for this lipstick the first thing that I noticed was the smell. It had the most wonderful smell that was kinda fruity but not overwhelmingly so that it would turn you off.

It also had a very creamy finish and smooth texture that glide on easily. This lipstick was also very moisturizing compared to Sweet Nectar that had a matte finish that dried out the lips and settled on the dry patches. I did not get any of that with Naturally Chic. This lipstick does transfer, however, being that it’s not a matte, dry finish.

Like the rest of the other colors from her collection, Naturally Chic is only six bucks and for that price, it’s definitely worth it! This is gonna permanently have a space in my nudes and natural lipstick collection.

Looking for your Perfect Nude Lip Shade? Your Nipple Will Tell You!

If you’ve been struggling to find the right nude lipstick as of late it might be because you’re looking in the wrong place. Experts have now discovered that you can find your perfect nude lip shade by looking at the color of your nipple. Yes!, your nipple folks!

StockSnap_QSZLI4D16D

What they’re claiming is that the shades of the nipple naturally compliments your skin tone and therefore you should look for a shade that is similar to compliment your lips as well. Check out the video below for proof.

This is the latest and one of the most interestingly bizarre beauty rage that has hit the fashion industry. Now, I’ve heard and seen a lot of weird things in the beauty industry but this one definitely took the cake for me.

Now what am I suppose to tell the salesperson when I’m out shopping for a nude lipstick? Am I suppose to just whack out my tits and say “I’m looking for this color nude lipstick?”

Who all are gonna give this trend a try? Comment below and let PuckerUpBabe know. XOXO

Mixing and Matching Nude Lipsticks

Processed with VSCO with s3 preset

So I’ve been trying to hold off on buying new lipsticks for a while until I can use up what I already have. With that said, I can get bored with wearing the same lipsticks quick so I’ve been trying different ways to make wearing my old lipsticks more fun.

Okay, so let’s get to it. I wore my Milani Matte Confident 67 and wanted it to be of a little lighter shade so I applied a topcoat of my Maybelline Totally Toffee 215 which lightened it up and resulted in a slightly brownish nude lip color. It was a completely new lip shade and it was totally free.

Not only does this help me to keep some change in my pocket, it’s fun and exciting to see what new shades your old lipsticks can bring forth.

Leave a comment and let me know what shades you’ve combined.

Back to Nudes – NYC Liquid Shine

NYC Liquid Lipshine
NYC Liquid Lipshine

Nude lipsticks and lip glosses will always be a hot trend in the makeup world and maybe that is why I always find myself in the nude section of the lipstick category. It’s just one of those safe colors that will almost always work with your outfit of the day. What I have today is NYC’s Liquid Shine in nude. This lip gloss is super affordable and can be found at most drug stores for less than five bucks. During the dry winter months I try to use mostly lip gloss as it keeps my lips feeling moisturized for a lot longer as compared to wearing lipsticks.

Not only is this yummy and shimmery lip gloss perfect on it’s own but it easily mixes with my other lip glosses to create an entirely new color.
