Milani Liquid Lipsticks | Metallic & Matte

Hi Lovelies,

Liquid lipsticks are a huge part of the makeup empire, and nothing is more exciting than a new launch of makeup…..okkkuurr!!! When Milani came out with their brand of metallic & matte lipsticks I headed to every store that carried it and brought what I could, cause I’m still on a budget, LOL!! I brought 2 metallic shades and 2 matte shades. I really love the formulas, They are heavily pigmented, and smells like vanilla. I do think that the product comes out a little thick, and it is very drying, it took a soccer team of products just to get it off my arm, but other than that, I still love both collections and I will 9/10 have the entire collection by the end of the month. 

Well I hope you enjoyed my little review of the Milani liquid lipsticks, if you did “LIKE” this post and “COMMENT” your favorite shade. BTW this post is not sponsored, I brought this with my own money and all opinions are my own.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lip Paints

2017-02-08-14-36-001

HI Lovelies,

If you’re a beauty addict like me, then you know that liquid lipsticks have taken over in a BLINK! so when I heard about these new liquid paints from L’Oreal, I was so excited.

So L’Oreal came out with the new Infallible Paints collection, which contains a total of 14 different shades. Out of those 14 I only brought 3 of the shades, subtle I know, but I just wanted to test them out, before I went lip crazy!!

The three shades I purchased were Sultry Sangria, Violet Twist, & Bewitching Bordeaux, to stay in the deep grape/plum family.

Pigment

I think that these lip paints are above & beyond, and they are super pigmented. When I swatched these shades, badly if I may add, they  apply sort of light with just one swatch, but they they are buildable, so if you want a darker shade, it can be achieved. I think that they apply very nice on the lips though, Its really opaque, and has a beautiful gloss finish.

Overview

The applicator has a dip in the dough foot, which is great when applying in the corners, I think that the length of the applicator is great, It comes in handy when trying to apply and keep within the lip shape. I really like the lip paints, they can be compared to the Too Faced melted liquid lips, I mean they feel very much like a melted lipstick, the consistency is very nice. As a melted lipstick, it’s not tacky at all, I really like the formula, and the fact that its not sticky, or thick.

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.

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.

Lazy Day Makeup

Hi Lovelies,

I am out of my college classes for the summer, and I can now appreciate a good lazy day. On a normal day I’m rushing to look half descent, but on a lazy day the makeup doesn’t come on until I have had at least 1 good cup of coffee. So, normally I don’t start doing my makeup til maybe 12 pm, which is the time I actually wakeup (not physically, but mentally).

On typical lazy days, I like to keep my makeup to a minimum.

2016-05-24-14-02-13

So IDK, if I’m the only one who likes music and the Tv on, even if I’m not looking at it ( I normally have a playlist of get ready music). Anyways, I used the Maybelline Nudes Palette for my look, and never really seen just how beautiful this palette really is. Looking at it has matte shades, and very shimmery shades, varying in the nudes. This palette ( if used right) contains shades that can be used for contouring/highlights. I decided to use a simple smoky eye/w. Winged eyeliner+highlight and nude lip.

I swatched the shades that I used for my eyes, in the corners of my eye I used the first swatch (top) which is a very pigmented; light shade with a shimmer undertone. For the mid shades I blended the 2 middle shades (middle) which are the ones badly swatched in the middle. For the crease I used a Gold shimmer shade (3rd from the bottom) and the Brown tone (bottom).

When it comes to highlighting, I don’t usually use it, but I have been watching alot of Jeffree Star, so my bae got me convinced. I highlighted my cheeks, cupids bow & Nose.
