VSX Lipglosses + Velvet Mattes

2017-05-09-14-51-38

Hi Lovelies,

It’s has been nearly a month since I’ve done any kind of post, but in defense I have been working on purchasing a camera, to give you better photos, and cross over to that professional lifestyle. I have a ton of PR, and I have been buying a ton of products that I want to share, I will try and post everything on time….I’ll Try… But enough stalling, Let’s get into this blog.

I have tried a ton of liquid lipsticks whether they’re Matte finishes, or glosses and normally I end up highly intrigued and buy everything, not like a normal person, so when I saw the lip products in Victoria Secret, literally flipped out. We all know Victoria Secret for being the “Sexy lingerie store” and Adriana Lima SWOON! But now they have descent makeup. 

 

Let’s start by talking about these lip glosses, I didn’t get a chance to swatch these in the store I brought these simply based off outside appearance. The packaging is beautiful and screams Spring, and not only that they really read as luxury products. When I swatched these shades they were a little disappointing, they were really transparent and light, but the color shine shades were more pigmented than the rest. I did like the feel of it on my lips, they weren’t tacky when applying it, though it takes about 40 applications to get the color on the outside it still is pretty and good if you don’t want dry lips.

The Velvet matte shades are very pigmented, they show up clear as day. I like that they are not overly drying and still has sort of, a shine underneath. I really should have gotten more of these shades, because they are super pretty, they apply nicely, they don’t tug or pull on the lips. The only thing about the velvet matte shades is that when you dip the wand in from application, they have a clump of product at the tip, but that’s the only nit- picky thing I have with these.

( From Top to Bottom)

Lip Color Gloss:

Escape ( light lilac w/ Pink undertone)

Paradise ( Hot Pink)

Peek a Boo ( Fair Nude)

Charmed ( Nude w/ Red undertone)

Velvet Matte:

Impulsive ( Red Shade w/ Pink undertone)

Scandalous ( Purple w/ Pink undertone)

Lastly is the Lip plumpers, I brought 2 of the same kind, uhhhhh!!!! Too Faced cosmetics has a lip plumper and I wanted to see how this compares to the Too faced lip plumper which was $22 BTW, the Victoria Secret lip plumper was half that price. I really like this lip plumper it doesn’t give you a plumped pout, but it does add a ton of gloss and shine, it’s infused with vitamin E, which is good for moisture. I’m glad I purchased 2 because traveling and being on the go causes dry lips, and this will help a ton.

I hope you enjoyed this little haul/ swatch post, I will definitely be posting more. If you enjoyed this post be sure to “LIKE” this post and tell me if you like the Victoria Secret makeup? Have you tried it? What’s your favorite shade in this post, if any? Let me know in the comments?

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.

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.

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 LOVES,

I’m back guys with another product haul collaborating with Beautyspin, one of my favorite sites, but this time I’m reviewing + swatching the NYX butter glosses. The nyx butter glosses have been around for a while now, so why am I just now just getting them? We have been in the world of Matte liquid lipsticks, and I’ve been completely under a spell to only purchase matte products, but I am now out of it, and wanted to try these lip glosses for myself.

Being that the NYX butter collection is new to the Beautyspin website, I picked my favorite 5, which were; Peaches and Cream, Tiramisu, Devils Food Cake, Red Velvet, and Maple Blondie. The names sound delicious, and smells even tastier. By the time I swatched all the shades I had a craving for all things CAKE.

 All of the shades had a pink undertone to it, the texture lived up to the expectations of feeling like butter on the lips. The application was very smooth, rich, and creamy, it didn’t feel sticky on my lips at all.
