Beauty Product I’m Loving!

 

I have to say, I‚Äôm so excited that August is over. Not that I have anything against August per se ‚Äď but the end of August means the start of September, right! September means fall ‚Ķ pumpkin spice lattes‚Ķ leaves on the ground ‚Ķ I can go on and on … blah blah blah. So you get the picture. I can‚Äôt be bothered with summer anymore. ¬†I’m ready to move one and honestly I‚Äôm so ready for the temperature to drop!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today, I want to share products I just picked up from Walmart last weekend. Can you take a guess? Yes, it’s the Wet n Wild¬†Beauty Mega Lip Color. Fall¬†for¬†me mostly¬†means playing with darker and bold color lippies, and boy was I excited to try them upon reaching home.

I uploaded pictures of the color swatches on my Instagram. If you have been following me, you probably had seen it,¬†and¬†if you haven’t already just click here to go to my Instagram ūüôā

I did a post review on them before and since I really love this awesome products, I’m going to rave about it again today.

The packaging is a decent drugstore plastic material. Nothing fancy but the formula is amazing.  To read more of my thoughts and opinions on other color I reviewed, then just hit the link.

L-R: Cherry Picking, Mocha-licious & Stoplight Red

OMG!!! Just look how pigmented the formula is. I know, it’s freaking Amaazzzing!!! Love, love the color payoff and insane pigmentation.

cherry-pickingmocha

I tried out all the shades and here are the color appeared on lips. They feel comfortable and not drying at all. I really like the nice feel on my lips. As I was writing the review yesterday, I was wearing my Stoplight Red for around 5 hours then and even through eating and drinking, the pigment was still true and even on my lips, despite a lot of the product itself having worn away. It just blew my mind! Oh yaass!

stoplight-red

Available in 26 beautiful shades at Walmart for CAD$2.84 and you can. This lipstick is going to appeal to people who are on-the-go all day long. They lasted a long time.

I highly recommend if you’re someone who hates fusing over their lipstick throughout the day. For the price, what could possibly go wrong.

Give it a thumb’s up if you like this post. Don’t forget to follow me on my blog or other social media if you haven’t already.

Thanks guys for being super awesome! muak …♥

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick [Sample Review]

 

 

I’m always on the lookout for long-lasting lipsticks. I want to not have to worry about reapplying every few minutes and keep a vibrant color. I really fell in love with the one from Urban Decay. You are able to apply it and maybe worry about it once that evening.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With Mothers’ Day just a few short days away, I wanted to share this long-lasting lipsticks for that special day. The¬†product comes in shades that are also great for the workplace or everyday wear.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Available in nine never before seen shades from neutrals to brights to deep-dark colors for every lip colors you love or as a gift. The choice is YOURS!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m definitely pleased with this matte lipstick. It’s a beautiful shade that I love and have been reaching for since I got it ¬†as a sample gift from Sephora.¬†

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I would definitely recommend this Matte Revolution Lipstick to anyone who love a matte lippy. For that price, I would surely pick a standard size for I love a comfortable, matte and long wearing lipstick which really make my lips look sexy and bold. I’m falling head over heels with this babe.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bad Blood is a matte deep red color. Epic awesomeness (hahaha!).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Definitely a matte lipstick that’s creamy and non-drying to wear.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another aspect I look for is if that line has a variety of colors. This is also a downfall since you will inevitably start collecting those and your vanity begins to burst! Or your purse has more lipsticks in it than anything else or you’re going to make someone you love very happy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the texture and I love the colors. This lipstick has the matte look, but still feels moisturizing and soft. If you always thought that matte lipsticks were drying & flaky (that makes you avoided them), let me tell you that UD got it right! I highly recommend it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you have tried Matte Revolution lipstick before, which¬†are¬†your favorite shades? I’ve only tried this Bad Blood and I want to try other shades by UD. Which shade would you recommend in the comment?

Alrighty, so that’s pretty much it for today’s post! Hope to see you  again on the next one.

Thank you for stopping by to read.

Wet n Wild Matte Lipstick – Cruelty Free Beauty Product

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve talked about this¬†Wet n Wild Matte Lipstick before and mentioned that I’ll repurchase it. Today, I like to share with you some of the products which I repurchased simply because I really love it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I can find some good makeup products by Wet n Wild at my local Walmart. 

Here’s what I picked up:

Wet n Wild Matte Lipstick in Wine Room – is a gorgeous reddish pink tone. The formula works well with this shade.

Wet n Wild Matte Lipstick in Bare It All – this shade is of brown toned. Definitely a pretty neutral shade.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I especially like the shades of these Wine Room and Bare It All.¬†These lipsticks are quite satin/matte to me. I noticed that it’s not the matte finish like those of drugstore lip cream. It’s very nicely pigmented — the color payoff is incredibly intense.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Matte lipsticks gives you noticeable color without the feeling of a heavy product on lips. My lips likes it feels comfortable and not too drying. This product allows you to apply more if you like, and the more vibrant the look becomes.

The formula is easy to apply. If I had to think of one bad thing to say about them, it would have to be that the packaging looks a little cheap. It tends to come¬†off of the actual tube because there isn’t a secure fit.¬†But snap out of it! These are gorgeous and they‚Äôre only $2.97! COME ON!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the color swatches which I swiped on my bare-arm only once. The formula is smooth and easy to glide on. These lipsticks gives a nice velvety satin/matte finish, if you don’t like super matte lipsticks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Overall, it’s good for the price. They’re matte and all they have a variety of colors to choose from so go get yourself some wet n wild lipsticks!! They do have a good color selection so there is something for everyone.

I’m being picky just to criticize, but at its price point, the quality of the lipstick itself has already exceeded my expectations, not to mention they’re cruelty free too.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next up is this Milani Color Statement Lip Liner in Spice. I love Milani and love this lip liner. Lately, I have been reaching for Spice to wear underneath the Wet n Wild Bare It All matte lipsticks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the packaging, it looks high-end! I also love that they’re priced under $5.00, sharpen nicely and look natural on the lips. So yay! It says on the packaging that it’s long wearing, easy to glide on and the formula could be used to line and fill the lips.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Milani liners are, as I mentioned, creamy, long lasting, and easy to sharpen. They’re made of wood (bonus if you dislike¬†retractable liners) and are¬†well¬†pigmented. The color of spice is of brown nude tones.

The only thing that bothers me about this¬†liner is that they only come in eight shades. Out of those eight, I could only see myself wearing maybe three. But I won’t let that stop me. And you ladies shouldn’t either. Mind you, the Milani brand is also on Leaping Bunny’s list.

We just had a memorable halloween and we dressed up and play disguises last weekend. It was so much fun to be stepping out of the comfort zone to be doing halloween makeup. I did vamped up to the occasion. Well, I’m curious and so here is the question for you.

Q: What Is Your Non-Traditional Lip Color?

A: I’ll say VAMPIRE DARK PURPLE OR BORDEAUX WINE color. How¬†about you? Don’t forget to leave your comments in the section below.

Show Off With Mac Heroine Lipstick

 

In a blink of an eye, another month has flown by, and we’re already in the end month¬†of October, 2015.

mac lip color heroine

Another product that needs no further introduction. It was my guilty pleasure this month. I’ve been eyeing this lipstick¬†for a long time now but I could never bring myself to spend CAD$20.00¬†on a single item mainly¬†for fall season. But after a long time of indecision, I decided to just bite the bullet and get it. It is definitely worth every single cent! The color is amazing and pigmented!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Mac Lipstick in Heroine¬†is described as a ‚Äúbright violet/purple.‚ÄĚ It‚Äôs a medium-dark purple with a satin finish. Love it!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Heroine has a creamy consistency that glides on well without tugging or pulling on the lips. It has full, opaque color coverage and wears well for four hours and does leave a reddish stain behind. Carry it in your purse so that you can retouch just in case. Another thing to point out is that the formula is neither drying nor hydrating. It feels comfortable on the lips.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The official finish is matte, but in reality, it’s not full-on matte. I feel that it has a shiny finish if you ask me.

Here is the color swatch. Amazing color and impressive almost matte finish! I’m loving it.

mac heroine lipstick

I was worried that it may turned out too dark but to my surprised it gives a pretty finish. I knew some purples look good on me, but this always seemed like it would be too much…it wasn’t! Yay!¬†I managed to pull it out nicely.¬†This shade may¬†not be everyone’s cup of tea and I totally understand that. You have to pick the shade which speak to you the most. Judging from the shade on my lips, I’m confident that I’d be wearing it for Spring too.

Wanna show off an awesome violet-purple lipstick, you’ll not go wrong with Heroine!

What color undertone did you see in this Heroine lipstick. Is it red or blue tone? I’m curious to hear your comments down below.

Thank you so much for taking your time to read.

Milani Cruelty Free Lipstick |Review & Swatch

Milani Lipstick Nude

I don’t mean to freak¬†you out, but fall¬†is basically here. Fall is one of my favorite season, it’s not that I don’t like summer but I really love the fall season watching as the¬†leaves changes its¬†colors and the cool¬†air seeping in.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

According to Fashion Magazine “When artists weren’t dressing up eyes, lips got some attention: previously painted in flesh tones or a quick smear of lip balm, this season mouths moved from red, to brick, to berry to‚Ķblack”. Talking about stepping out of comfort zone! Black lips, that’s another whole new level ūüėÄ

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Aargh!!! But I still love my lips but better lipstick from Milani which I picked up recently. Okay! Go ahead and judge me if you want,¬†I don’t care!¬†I’m a basic person¬†clinging onto my comfort zone :P. Did any of you feel this way? I feel that neutral shade could never go out of style but then that’s just my opinion! So, today¬†I just want to talk about it. It’s not a new color released from Milani but it’s a shade that looks better and comfortable on my lips ūüôā

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got the shade 42 in Rose Femme and totally love it. It’s highly pigmented and moisturizing. I blends well and it a gorgeous shade for everyday wear. It’s a muted shade that gives a natural finish.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Right here, I’m sharing with you here a glimpse of my bare lips but I’m going to show you my lips but better lip color down below using my new found love of Rose Femme Lipstick by Milani. That’s the main star of this post, lol!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The importance of wearing a lipstick is that you must feel comfortable, be it by the texture, the formula, smell and the shades. Excellent tips if you want to achieve the look of my lips but better lipstick!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Kylie Jenner lip challenge but this method doesn’t require sucking on short glasses. You heard me right! All you need is a Nude lip liner and draw the line out of your natural lips. I then smudges it with the lip liner and I used an¬†eyeshadow highlighter (White color) and pat it in¬†the middle of my lips for some dimension.

Et voila! a pouty pout which is so easy to create. Milani you did it again, I love how gorgeous the formula is and the staying power. It glides well and very impressive lip finish. One lipstick with many different looks. This drugstore brand is also cruelty free or No Animal Testing on its products. So yay for that! My next pit stop is to pick up the darker shades for the season.

Go for it, if you try being bold with your lip colour this fall, whether it be a cherry red, a plum or ‚Äď if you dare ‚Äď a glossy black. There are endless shades for fall¬†and you decide which shade best¬†represent¬†you.

You can find Milani on their website, drugstores, Well.ca and Walmart.

Joe Fresh Lipstick Duo|Review

 

Awww Joe Fresh! I’ve blogged a few times about my love for this great Canadian brand and reason been because it’s becoming more accessible and we’re talking about great value at an affordable price point.

red color lip

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post that I’ll be doing the Canadian theme and today I’ll be doing just that. Here is another makeup product¬†I picked up recently at Maxi (a subsidiary of Loblaws (Canadian Grocery Stores)) and it’s the¬†Lipstick Duo by Joe Fresh.

If you have been reading my posts, you may know that I’m normally drawn to eye products but was completely smitten with the lip stuff this time. The shades of this lipstick duo are bright on one end and peachy nude¬†on the other. How cool is that, right! Or eh?!

color swatch joe fresh

The lipstick shade I got is in Berry – the swatch on the my right and on the left Fig in a warm peachy nude color toned. Both shades are very pretty. I love the pigmentation and its creamy texture.

color swatch red

The packaging is sturdy and doesn’t look cheap like some other drugstore brands do. There’s quite a good amount of formula in the stick which is a bonus.

I’m totally rocking the bright¬†Berry shade today for lip swatch and I’m really impressed with the formula and color payoff. It gives a smooth, creamy and satin finish.

nude lip joe fresh

Lastly, the price point for Joe Fresh‚Äôs lipsticks is only $6!¬† In today‚Äôs make-up world, $6 usually doesn‚Äôt go a long way, unless you’re buying items on sale.

I love, love this lipstick duo. You don’t take my word for it, you ought to just try it ūüôā

Will you be wearing a it¬†lip¬†all Summer? Well, I know that¬†I will ūüėÄ

It’s a drugstore brand that is so convenient to get compounded with its affordable price really makes my lips happy :D. ¬†So,¬†here are some of the shades that I have¬†in my collection ‚̧

These shades really rock. I love love the pigmentation and the opaque finish of these lipsticks. Many of you may also know that I can go for basic color or the woman in red  but as you can see here from my collection I did picked up some pretty shades of pink and plum for a change.

Well,¬†if you’re planning on wearing some gorgeous¬†nude color lips this summer then these nude lipsticks will love you for sure ‚̧

lipsticks and swatches

Here are the¬†color swatches with gorgeous pigmentation. With only one swipe, it can pretty much blow you away with the desired color. What if you put¬†¬†2-3 coats of Really Red¬†on your lips.¬†that’s going to be bomdiggidy like Marilyn Monroe’s signature red lips. But, even after that much layering, your lips¬†will still feel lightweight and hydrated ūüėÄ

Berry Rich Revlon lipstick

Here is a picture where I used 3 coatings of the shade Berry Rich. I love the moisture from this formula that gives a pretty creamy finish. This is not a matte lipstick but stunning. With its rich pigmentation, it could covers your full lips beautifully.

3 Comfortable Matte Lipsticks Part 1

 

 

Hey cuties,

Do you have a certain time of phrase where you love a certain type of products where you love and love more of. For me I am becoming very obsessed with matte lips and part of the reason is because there are so many comfortable formula that really rocks which I think it has never has been.

top 3 matte lips

So, don’t get me wrong, I still love my shine and glossy lips but I just feel that I started to appreciate the matte lip color a little bit more recently. I wanted to share with you 3 matte lipsticks that I loved and keeps going back to. I think they are comfortable formula to wear and I’m also sharing the colors that I really love, RED!

3 comfortable matte lip colors

Wearing these lipsticks, I don’t have to put lip balm first since it is comfortable enough to wear as it is. If you are wondering what type of lip balm you can wear before wearing a matte lipstick due to another whole level of dryness, then I will recommend you use the esos lip balm. I will be doing are full review next week on the esos lip balm. So, don’t forget check back later. Okay, so¬†this¬†lip balm will still maintain the properties of a matte finish lips¬†simply because it is not greasy, not overly¬†shinny while keeping your lips more hydrated. Like I just mentioned earlier, if you lips are very dry then go with the esos lip balm as a lip primer for¬†hydration purposes.

kate moss matte

First up is the Kate Moss Lasting Finish by Rimmel in 107 is a beautiful red plum tone which is so pretty. This is my first one try on this Kate Moss matte lipstick and for months and months I have been telling myself this is the most comfortable lipstick I have ever tried.  It feels so velvety smooth on, full coverage the shade is awesome and fabulous pigmentation. If you love red plum shade tone then you have found what you are looking for. I personally feel that with Kate Moss lipsticks, you could go no wrong. This 107 shade is so beautiful and stunning.

revlon matte stick

Next is this Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm. I got this in 250 Standout. The color is buildable and this shade in 107 is a beautiful red. I love how it stays on my lips and it feels lightweight. I just love the intensity of this matte lipstick.

wnw matte

The next shade that I will be sharing with you guys will be the Wet n Wild in Pink Suga which looks nude color.  This shade looks a little paler and a little bit heavier but I still think that it is comfortable.

Mac Cosmetics Reviews |Lipsticks

 

Hey lovelies,

I have always wanted to do a Mac feature brand lipstick reviews and this opportunity didn’t come in even better. I just got this Mac Retro Matte Lipstick (in Ruby Woo) as a mother’s day gift from my honey bear and I love this bold red that I just so thrilled to share my thoughts and opinion with you guys. Many of you may have read some of my beauty haul which I scratched the surface of the lipsticks I picked up for my haul. But this time, I’m going to show more pictures and color swatches in this post. So, grab yourself a bowl of¬†popcorn¬†as we’re about to roll:-

Mac matte lipsticks

I don’t have a huge collection of Mac makeup line but I can feel that my stash is growing slowly but steadily (giggling). Here are the four Mac lipsticks which I have from this brand. Mac cosmetics is¬†one of my favorite brand lipsticks and the shades are ridiculously amazing. I love the pigmentation and the creamy, velvety feel of this lip color on my lips.

Right here are Lady Danger, Saint Germain, Saint Nude and Ruby Woo my latest bullet in my collection. Yay! They net wt: 0.1 oz for each bullet. The packaging is simple with a high end bullet design.

Below, I’m going to demonstrate a “Perfect and Clean Lip Look” using Mac Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo to create this look.

perfect & clean lips by mac

On my right, I started with a naked lips. I did not put lip concealer but it is really optional. If you like your lip color to stay longer and don’t budge.¬†Once you have applied your lip concealer you can start by using your lip liner brush.

Start¬†by drawing a line on your cupid bow. Make sure that they are balance in height. Once you have the shape of the cupid bow, do a weird smile and draw from the corner of your lips to join the centre of your lips. Do this for both corners. Then, fill your lips with your lipstick. We are only doing the top lip and let’s go ahead and do the bottom lip now.

Use the same lip brush, draw a smooth line along your lower lip like the picture shown. It’s pretty easy to do this look. Once you are done drawing, fill your bottom lip with your lipstick. In my case, I use Ruby Woo and then make a smack on both lips. And you’re done! I really love this perfect and clean red lips look ‚̧

mac color swatches-review

All these lipsticks are super pigmented and the shades are so incredibly smooth and pretty. The Saint Nude is in a neutral nude tone while Saint Germain has a cool tone pink. I love the coral tone of Lady Danger and the bold red is simply my style.

Saint Nude and Saint Germain both have a shimmery finish while Lady Danger and Ruby Woo are more opaque and with matte velvety finish. These shades are all perfect to summer days with the exception of¬†this solid red which is specially reserved for special occasion ūüôā

kissable lips

I hope you like and enjoy reading this post. The demonstration is a throw in bonus since I was excited to share how a red lipstick can rock a beautiful lips.

Oh… I can’t end my blog without giving you guys a flying kiss. So, mwuah!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and stay Beautiful.

Wet n Wild Megalast Matte Lipstick|Swatch|Review

 

 

Hey beauties!

Remember that I mentioned in my previous post that I haul a good handful of drugstore beauty products? Well, this Wet n Wild Megalast Matte lipstick is the one that I want to talk to you about today.

I have started to love wnw makeup line lately since as far as I can remember wnw wasn’t so good. In the past few years wnw has grown & revamped there whole line. They have amazing eye shadows and beautiful lipsticks that’s so cool.

wet n wild lipstick

I did a review before actually of another shade which is the Pink Suga awhile ago. I’ll leave a link below if you like to check it out. Anyways, since I love the experience I have with this megalast lipstick, yeah! I pick another shade in Rose Bud. Such a pretty… pretty color that just light up my pale-tired face. Net wt: 0.17 oz for $2.78 at Walmart.

color swatch wet n wild lippies

The texture is smooth and it glides beautifully. I simply love how generously pigmented this lipstick is! It’s incredibly pigmented and the color is gorgeous. I mean look at that swatch, right! It gives a matte finish look and it¬†last for what feels like forever! lol After the photos I took them off with a baby wipe and washed my hand¬†and you could still see color stain¬†of the color.¬† So very pigmented !

lips swatches wnw

On this look, I’m not wearing lip primer¬†or lip balm so it looks a little chapped since I feel that the downside of this formula is that it tends to dry up lips ūüė¶

wnw lipsticks

I have here Pink Suga in 900B – a neutral nude and Rose-Bud in 904B – a pretty dark rose.

Final thoughts on¬†this megalast lip color is 8 out of 10. Totally worth the price. Ill be picking up a few more shades for sure. What about you? Will you be picking some springy or summery shades too? Please let comment below. I love to read your comments ‚̧

Thank you as usual for taking the time to read.
