Urban Decay VICE lipstick

Urbandecay

HI Loves,

So it’s no secret that Urban Decay is a HUGE brand, not only that, their VICE lipstick collection has me hooked. The collection varies in mattes, creamy, and satin shades, that has over 100 shades varying from nude to the most vibrant Blue.

When shopping at Ulta I literally get overwhelmed by how many shades are on the shelf, and by the end of the day my arm looks like a piece of art. Recently, I brought 4 shades to add to the collection, and I’m here to share this moment with you guys.

I brought the shades Heroine, Moshpit, Spiderweb, and Back talk, all the shades are different finishes.

  • Heroine/ Blue ( Comfortable Matte)
  • Moshpit / Deep Berry tone ( Cream)
  • Spiderweb/ Satin Red ( Cream)
  • Back Talk / Mauv-y Nudew/ pink undertone ( Comfort matte)

The packaging itself is gorgeous, it makes you excited for the shade inside. The lipstick comes in a gold, and silver gunmetal type packaging, and being that Ruby Rose is the spokesmodel for the brand, I can see the correlation. I love how the lipstick almost looks like a bullet, and how the shape of the lipstick tip is angled in a way that can be applied to the lips comfortably.

When it comes to the formulas of the lipsticks, I find them all to be easy application, I think when people think MATTE, they think “tug n pull” but the mattes in the collection are very smooth when applying and doesn’t take many layers to see pigmentation. The Creamy shades are my favorite, only because it feels like a gloss, almost comparable to the TOO FACED melted lipsticks, these shades are also buildable which is good for transitioning from day to night.

I hope you enjoyed my review, on the URBAN DECAY VICE lipsticks, if you like reviews like this be sure to “LIKE” this post and “comment” if you’ve tried this collection. If so what’s your favorite shade?

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.

lrm_export_20170209_1923361

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.

Diety America Hair care- Collection

PR samples courtesy of Diety America, all opinions are my own.

Hi Lovelies,

Hair Problems, something everyone goes through whether its heat damage, to thin, or just flat I haven’t came across a girl whos’ hair was just perfect, unless you’re Sofia Vergara.

It wasn’t until 3 months ago that I heard of Diety America, if you don’t know who they are here’s a little insight. Diety America is a hair brand that helps with healthy; natural regrowth. All of the products are based from Tibet, and Chinese herbal extracts, also carrying ginseng, wheat, protein, and Avocado. This brand couldn’t have contacted me at a better time, especially since my hair was in the process of breaking off. Through contacts they wanted me to review for them, and it didn’t take long to say yes.

What they sent were 2 leave in conditioners, Plant shampoo, a heat protectant, as well as, a serum dropper and a scalp treatment.

lrm_export_20170119_1258551

I tried this entire collection in the course of 3 months, in moderation of course.Now that I’m done rambling, let’s talk about the products.

lrm_export_20170119_1304311

The Super Gro Serum Nutmeg + Serum Gro scalp Treatment

I use these every night just to keep my scalp from being dry, because my hair soaks up moisture. The super grow w/nutmeg is very lightweight on my hair, it has a mentholated feeling when I apply it to my hair. Its made with Asian herbal extract, Chinese ginseng extract, Nutmeg Oil, Argan Oil, and Knotweed, all are ingredients made to grow healthy hair from the root, as well as, protect hair from breakage. With the nutmeg you definitely can smell it in the ingredients and feel a burning sensation as well. The Serum gro scalp treatment is similar to the super gro but without any nutmeg, or menthol. I prefer the super gro with the nutmeg, but both works just the same.

Leave in Hydrating & Repair Scalp Treatment / Deep Penetrating Conditioner

The Hydrating leave in conditioner and the Deep Conditioner were my favorite products to use weekly. The hydrating leave in conditioner is made up of Water, Soy Protein, Ginseng, Shea Butter, Asian & Tibetan herbs, and Knotweed. The hydrating conditioner I liked because it could be used as a styling product or just to condition and wash out. It really is a hydrating conditioner, it is kind of, heavy so you don’t need much. As most conditioners its meant to repair the hair and keep breakage from happening. I used this twice a week and by the end of the week wash it out, because the build up can cause your hair to feel sticky. The Deep Condition , is made of Tibetan Herbs, Aloe Vera, Ginseng, and Avocado, all ingredients that promotes healthy hair growth, and stops breakage. The deep condition acted like a hair mask, when you apply all over the hair it hardens and you leave it on for about 15 min, then wash it out. I think both of these combinations helped my hair the most, because I did use these as my holy grail products. If you’re trying to grow your hair, these are my recommended products, because these duos have a combination of hair growth ingredients, and you can use it weekly if not daily.

The Plant Shampoo

I really like using the plant shampoo, made of the same as the leave in hydrating leave in conditioner, the plant shampoo is an all organics shampoo that helps repair hair. I used the shampoo and the consistency is very thick, it smells like grass, yeah that’s how natural it is. It really did help my hair to stop breakage. I used this every 2 weeks and within the first months usage, I could see a difference. I really do like the way it lathers my hair and that its not filled with alcohol and parabens, which are both harmful to your hair.

Repairing Essence Daily Moisturizer lotion

I normally do not like lotions in my hair mainly because, lotions tends to make my hair sticky and stiff, The daily moisturizer changed my entire opinion about certain lotions. This daily moisturizer contains Amino Acids, Vitamin C5, Ironic Protein, and Collagen. This is a daily lotion, which you can use daily, but I only used it when I used the deep conditioner, to keep my hair hydrated and shiny. This lotion works really well, its not like any lotion I ever tried, its light weight, the consistency in my hair is nice, it doesn’t weigh my hair down at all.

As for the entire Diety America collection, I really liked the natural quality of the products, I have used tons of “natural” products but these products takes the cake. I think that as far as the ingredients, being free of sulfates, and parabens are always great. the shampoos’ and conditioners works well together. I highly recommend this brand to people who liiivvvee for organic and Au’ natural products.

A Hairy Situation….

LRM_EXPORT_20161025_145109(1)[1].jpg

Hi Lovelies,

So, I have come to a hair problem in the past month, HEAT DAMAGE!! Every girls worst hair nightmare. With heat damage, its best to keep your hair filled with nourishing oils, and vitamins, which I have been doing to keep my hair from falling out. I have been through my spastic; dramatic moment, but I finally got the cure.

LRM_EXPORT_20161024_123630(1)[1].jpg

Novex is a brand that I contacted, after I seen a few reviews on their website. Let me give you some insight on this amazing hair company. 

LRM_EXPORT_20161025_140045(1)[1].jpg

Novex is the most known Brazilian hair care brand worldwide, It’s found in over 40 countries, and translates in 6 different languages.

I got the chance to try 2 out of their 6 hair care treatments. One was the Bamboo Sprout collection, and the other was the Brazilian Keratin treatment. Both collections came with a shampoo, conditioner, deep condition, and the Brazilian keratin came with a bonus product, a leave in condition heat spray, which I’ll get to in a minute.

LRM_EXPORT_20161025_140526(1)[1].jpg

The novex Bamboo Sprout collection I tried for two weeks, and all ready I could tell the difference in my hair. The bamboo sprout is meant to strengthen and grow your hair, without stripping it of its natural oils. Personally, I really like all 3 products of the Bamboo sprout line, but I think that the Deep Condition, has to be my favorite. I have really thick; and curly hair. I really like the feeling of the deep conditioner, it leaves my hair with volume and moisture ( putting a cap on your hair, while leaving the condition in for 30 minutes, puts moisture in your hair, and allows all the vitamins and nutrients to set in your hair). 

lrm_export_20161025_14015011

The Bamboo Sprout overall has to be a great product, and I do recommend it. Its not a harsh product at all.

LRM_EXPORT_20161025_141515(1)[1].jpg

The last products are the Brazilian keratin collection, included with the new Keratin Leave in conditioner, styling spray. I was over excited about the keratin products, keratin is a nutrient that is included in all hair types, it allows the hair to not only be more manageable, but it strengthens your hair. With my hair going through the process of heat damage, it needs to restore all of its keratin, and nutrients, that allowed my hair to grow.

The products all work wonderfully, I highly recommend it, especially the Brazilian keratin leave in conditioner. Leave in conditioner, acts as a mask, and moisturizer. I really like the benefits of conditioner, it restores the balance in your hair, and makes your hair stronger.

I have been using this product for a good month and a half, so I can’t really see a dramatic difference. What I can tell is that my hair is not shedding as much, and is not brittle. What my hair is transitioning into is the result of new growth, as well as, providing my nutrients and protein back into my hair.

I hope you enjoyed my pr, and post on novex. If you like my product reviews, be sure to “LIKE” this post, and “COMMENT” if you have any favorite hair products. (I will keep you updated on my hair journey, just go to my instagram page)

NYX Butter Glosses | Review + Swatches

20160913_121002[1].jpg

Disclaimer: PR samples were provided by Beautyspin, all opinions are my own. Enjoy!!

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.

2016-09-14-09-56-391

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.

2016-09-14-11-51-001

Here are the links to the shades. (3 of the shades came together, and 2 were seperare)
