Too Faced Liquified Mattes

Hi Lovelies,

I’ve always been late when it comes to getting the latest in beauty, because when you buy one thing there’s a billion that comes out the next day, UUUHHH!!  I have been a fan of Too Faced liquid lipsticks, they retail for $21 which is a pretty penny, but you are not just paying for the brand, this liquid lipsticks is mattified to Death. One thing I love is the packaging, it comes in a glass packaging, which is so beautiful, but also is easily breakable. I’m a fan of matte liquid lips and this matte formula is super pigmented, and rich in color, I have a hard time when I wear liquid lipsticks and they are super drying, or streaky in color, but this formula takes a trip to Africa and back to come off. I brought drop dead red and Bend & Snap, which were total opposites when it comes to the color spectrum. Drop Dead Red, is a very deep cranberry Red, super sexy and Fall season, I know Spring time is upon us, but a classic red is for all season, OKKUURRR! Bend & Snap is a very hot Pink, super pigmented and pretty, definitely a pigmented pink.  I recommend this brand of liquid lips, trust me…. disappointing, NOTTT!! 

I hope you enjoyed the little overview, I will definitely have more post coming, my OOTD’s are coming back and more Beauty post are on the way, getting myself ready for Summer classes has been a process, but I’m back in the game. Tell me if you like Too Faced? If so “LIKE” this post, and “COMMENT” whats your favorite shade in the collection.

Couleurs Cosmetics Review & Swatch

2017-03-03-14-53-061

Hi Lovelies.

I have a ton of goodies to share with you “Beauty community”, starting right now. NO rambling. Couleurs Cosmetics recently sent me a PR package of some of their liquid lipsticks, matte lipsticks, and some matte lip liners. If you don’t know of the beauty brand here’s a little insight;

“Couleurs Cosmetics is a beauty brand with special formulation and colors to cater to women of all ethnicities.

So now that you know a little about the brand, I got to try and swatch,  of each of their lipsticks, liquid lips, and the lip liners. I was excited to swatch these shades, they are all matte shades, pigmented AF, and are cruelty free, which is always a plus.

What I swatched were all products in the shades; Balancy, Paloma, Barbra, Couleur, Risque, Elveda, Provence, Naked, and Haiti. The formulas of the lip products all come in very matte formulas, not drying matte, but more of velvet matte form where its not drying and it doesn’t feel like it’s dragging on the lips. The collection contains of 10 liquid shades, 10 ultra matte lipsticks, and 5 lip liners. 

The liquid lipsticks are very nice, they apply as sheer and are not heavy on the lips. The liquid lipsticks that I swatched all were very pretty, the shade that was my favorite was the nude shade in “Paloma” it was nice and buildable, especially with the help of the lip liner. The deep purple shade, Balancy, was a little streak-y, but Violet shades are always hard to come across a perfect shade, but though that one con, it still applies nicely and can build to the shade outside the tube. The ultra matte lipsticks all had brilliant performances, they all showed up nicely and with one stroke is very pigmented. I loved all the shades that I was given and I will be doing more looks on my INSTA with this shade.

NYX Liquid Suede Lipsticks

2017-01-28-13-00-561

Hi Lovelies,

This is not a review, I brought all products with my own money, I just want to chit chat about the nyx liquid suede lipsticks because they are FIRE!!!

I love the NYX brand, year after year I feel like they are neck and neck with the high end brands, if not….better (*no shade*). Every time I go to target I buy one of their Liquid suede lipsticks, because these shades are heavenly pigmented.

I have a few of the older shades, but these shades serve me well. I have the shades: Stone Fox, Soft Spoken, Tea and Cookies, Amethyst, Sway, and Pink Lust. 

lrm_export_20170128_1306101

The Nyx Liquid suede lipstick is pigmented, this is only one layer swatches, imagine if I had multiple layers, I know pigmented AF. I think that the shades carry a great consistency, they are very smooth when applying. I love the formula of the shades, do they stay all day, not really, but it leaves a tint on the lips which is nice.

The NYX liquid suede lipsticks are suede but dry as matte, I love a good matte lip, who doesn’t now a days, but it still has moisture even when it dries matte. Which I like very much.

The applicator is long and on the thin side which is very convenient to get the corners and edges of your mouth when applying.

I look forward to their new shades in the Liquid Suede collection, the colors from what I saw are super bold and very pigmented.

I hope you enjoyed this little chit chat about the NYX liquid Suede lipsticks, be sure to “LIKE” and “comment” what’s your favorite shades in the collection? Have you tried the Liquid Suede Lipsticks? Do you like them?

theBalm Cosmetics x Review | Read My Lips

lrm_export_20161127_005533lrm_export_20161127_010023

Hi Lovelies.

Hope everyone had enjoyed the holidays, I recently took some time off to spend time with family and get myself situated for school, but in between I got to try some awesome products, and when I say “some” I really mean a lot. 

I am a huge fan of the balm cosmetics and got to try the read my lips lip gloss (4) POW, VA VA VOOM, BOOM, and HUBBA HUBBA. Now, that I have monologue enough lets begin this review. ENJOY

lrm_export_20161127_010313

I feel like lip gloss has been pushed aside and liquid lip sticks has been conquering the beauty world, but brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills, Kat Von D, and MAC has given lip gloss a platform to bring it back to the fore front.

I stopped using lip gloss, simply because I don’t like sticky lips, I don’t like when my hair swipes my lips, and I love pigmentation #girlproblems. The balm cosmetics have a ton of products that I love, but I’ve always been hesitant about trying their glosses, but all I can say was that I was missing out.

Product

The balm Read my lips lip gloss, is a gloss infused with ginseng and vitamins to give your lips the proper plump of lusciousness and no stick. I am a fan of Ginseng, its good for just about any beauty problem that you have, so if any product is infused with Ginseng BUY IT.

Texture

The read my lips lip glosses got it right with the formula, its not sticky at all, not tacky in any way. Usually lip glosses are very light but the formula is never made to stay on, I wore this lip gloss for a day, Coffee and all, it stayed on for a good 6 hours and I only reapplied once.

lrm_export_20161127_012402

The texture for these glosses were very creamy, and very rich. It glides on thick but it’s still a smooth application.

Shades | Swatches

All the shades I picked were in the same Reddish/Pink family. I got the shades POW | Hubba Hubba| Va Va Voom | Boom

POW- This shade is a Pink tone | Fuchsia undertone

Boom– This shade is a Berry tone, with a shimmer finish

Va Va Voom- A Berry shade with a Red undertone

Hubba Hubba– A Pink shade with a shimmer finish

All the shades were very pigmented to be glosses, so I was definitely satisfied, you do have to reapply maybe once or twice throughout the day, but for a while the shades are sort of long lasting, and the color stays for id say up to 4 or  5 hours.

lrm_export_20161127_013016

Overall PR

The balm Read My Lips were a great success, it swatches beautifully and is great for when you don’t want to wear a liquid lip, or lipstick. The colors are very pigmented, they last quite a while, so you’re definitely getting your moneys worth. These glosses retail for about $7.50 each do that’s a great price.

Hi Lovelies,

June flew by so fast, that I almost forgot it was July. I’ve been trying tons and tons of beauty products that works for me, especially during the summertime. Here are a few favorites that I recently been trying out. ENJOY!!

Thebalm MaryLou Manizer shimmer highlight palette. This palette has to be my top favorite as a highlighting product. I have seen this all over social media, and had to try this product. The shimmer palette is great when it comes to formula, and texture. I think that its a very buildable product, so the more you pack on the brighter you’ll shine. I found that this product was also a really great price, for how much product you get. Overall great product, I really like this palette so much, and recommend it. Catrice Cosmetics Colour correcting Primer- I never used color correcting primer when doing my makeup, so I wanted to see what’s the difference. The first day I used it, I could see a huge difference, before putting on just foundation and concealer. I like the Catrice Color correcting primer, it works almost like the Studio Gear Cosmetics primer. The primer blends out nicely, and it is really smoothe against the skin, kind of, like a moisturizer. I think I’ll use this more often. This is a great product and a great price. Ardell Lashes in Natural 117– I have always been afraid to wear lashes but when you do makeup, it adds drama to the whole attire. I love the ardell lashes, I like that their natural and easy to apply. The ardell lashes range in from natural to extreme glamour. If you’re just now starting to wear lashes, these are a great start off, just to test them out. Overall I really like them, they are light, and not drag queen heavy, LOL. I have been wanting to try an actual contour kit, instead of just blush powders in darker tones. The Rimmel London Contour palette is amazing. I am not a fan of Dramatic makeup unless I’m doing it for a blog post, the Rimmel contour kit really is a great product, the highlight, blush, and contour colors are very pigmented, as well as, buildable. I really love the palette it’s not so powder-y, it has a creamy texture and doesn’t make my face oily, which is great, because the summer does that already. I brought an eyeshadow palette by La Colors, and fell in Love. I purchased the matte palettes by La Colors in the Nudes, and absolutely love it. I am very attracted to working the whole “Golden Goddess” Look during the summer, mainly because it super easy, and I like the shades against my skin. The shades range from light to a brown w/ black undertone. The palette is great, and is highly pigmented, which is great for the price I brought it for. Lastly I got the NYX soft matte shade Amsterdam. I can’t tell you how many red shades I have in my makeup collection, there are so many shades of reds created by different beauty brands, I just have to get the perfect shade for the season. I love this lipgloss, it is kind of streaky, but the application is very moisturizing, as for the matte finish, dont look for it to dry matte, it has almost a matte finish with a smooth shine to it. I really like this color, and look to wear it alot.

I hope you enjoyed the post, Be sure to check out Beautyspin, they are a great site for beauty brands and better prices. I’m thinking about doing a Beauty Look, with the products mentioned in my next post, would you like to see that, let me know in the comments, also “Like” this post.

Studio Gear True Lipstick Collection

2016-01-18-13-32-20.jpg

PR Samples- all opinions are my own

I am a true devulger when iy comes to Lipstick. I go from matte to creamy, Red to Nude, and it just feels like I never have enough. Studio Gear Cosmetics sent me there True Lipstick Collection to review,  and this was no dissapointment. Being that this is my first established Collaboration with a great Beauty Brand, the excitement just killed me when I seen there website. The True Lipstick line is a all matte line, and leaves a velvet finish, my smile stretched from ear to ear, because I can never find the perfect matte its either to dry, or not pigmented the way it appears. These shades are above amazing, I will hold these with my life.

2016-01-18-13-45-28.jpg

Studio Gears’ True Matte Lipstick Collection is phenomenal. The lipstick line devuted in the summer, and the anticipation of getting the collection was well worth it. I love the collection, the lipsticks are so smooth, pigmented, and wearable throughout the year. Each color has its own personality, and I literally feel like I’m in another scenario with each color. There are so many looks I can do with each color. This line is literally unbelievable.

The True Lipstick collection is so amazing. They are a velvet Matte, which is up to par with the name. I love that the colors are very pigmented, but because its so matte, but you do have to reapply throughout the day, which is fine. When applying the application is pretty rough against my lips, but the aftermath results in an amazing look, so the finish is worth it. The look of the packaging is amazing by itself, the tube is a velvet black, which is very sexy and good to feel (wierd). I wore the true red all day while shopping, and to me if I’m running around and shopping, if a lipstick is able to keep up thats a plus for me.

Okay by admitting this, we are friends for life, I dont know if I’m the only one to smell makeup, but I can kind of distinguish my lipsticks & brands by the smell. These Studio Gear Lipsticks smell like Fashion Fair lipsticks, which is the brand my mom use to get, but I do like the scent, it takes me back like maybe 10 years ago ( 10 years old, basically).

The Collection is super amazing, I love the colors, application, Smell. This collection was one of the most fun reviews I got to do. I hope you enjoy this review, because if you do heres another gift, for my wonderful makeup lovers.

These lipsticks cost $18 each, which is pricey, by entering the code (use this code)-> passionforprada you’ll be able to get 10% off your entire purchase!

Have you guys heard of Studio Gear? What about the True Lipstick Collection? If so, whats your favorite color? Be sure to tell me in the comments.
