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?

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.

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?

Hi Lovelies,

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacation. Recently, I took a little trip to Macys, and spent like there was no tomorrow. I mean, I brought lipsticks, mascara, eyeliner, basically my face, and I’m going to share it with you guys, So Enjoy!!

So first I brought 4 Lipsticks: 2 velour lipsticks, 1 matte, and a gloss stain. I have been in lobe with the colors that mac provides for years, cruelty free makeup, with one of the best formulas, and pigmentation.

Ceaseless Energy: Is the lipstain gloss. The formula is very smooth, and not sticky ( Thank God), it almost has the texture of a balm. The pigmentation is killing it, it’s a soft pink, which is perfect for the summer.

Up The Amp: This is one of the velour lipsticks, and let me just say I’m living for this color. The color is a purple, with a soft pink undertone. It’s a subtle purple, not really bold, and in your face, it’s just wearable for any occasion. The application is great, the texture is super smooth, and almost has the application of a velvet lipstick, and it has a shine, so it doesn’t make your lips dry.

Impassioned: This has to be my favorite velour color. This shade is almost on the coral/salmon pink color, with a deeper pink undertone. This shade is so gorgeous, and the swatch does not do it justice (Sorry). This shade is super smooth just like Up The Amp, and the pigmentation is super riche so 2 swipes on the lips will give you your satisfied color (Truth).

Personal Statement: Lastly is the matte shade Personal Statement in Pink. Now I have really been a fan of the matte liquid lipsticks, just like anyone else, but with matte you have to be careful, because it can be to dry, or streaky when applying, but MAC knows what their doing. The application is so smooth, and has the most even matte finish possible, and this is just by swatching. When I applied it to my lips the color was so vibrant, and super hydrating to put on and even with the chips and drinks that I had, it did not wear off at all. This shade is so gorgeous, this is the perfect summer time pink that I’ve seen.

I brought a mascara,because having one isn’t enough. This mascara in particular caught my eye because of the wand. I have a lot of mascara, Like Alot! and its always one is better than the other, but this MAC branded mascara is so different. Firstly, the wand is straight up and down, it’s sturdy, and the when going to dip it, it doesn’t come out with a lot of messy product on the wand, it comes out evenly, allowing me to build on if I want bolder lashes. Secondly, it doesn’t make my lashes clunky, I mean enough said. In my opinion this mascara is great.

Modern Twist Kajal liner: I’m always looking for a good eyeliner, whether it be matte or gel finish. I haven’t actually tried this eyeliner out yet, because I haven’t had time, but I will definitely try it out and blog about it later.

Well that’s all for my MAC haul, I hope you enjoyed it, ( this post was not sponsored in any way, I brought everything on my own).
