What I’m Most Excited About The Month of May|Sephora Birthday Gift

 

Is it just me or is the month of May flies incredibly fast! It’s pretty scary but since my birthday is in another few days. I can’t hold on the excitement any much longer, therefore I just posted this to share it with you guys.

There’s this saying “Time goes fast when you’re having fun”. Does that happens to anyone?

Sephora Birthday Gift 2018

I actually got this two weeks ago when I was shopping at Sephora and also picked up this beautiful Sephora Insider Birthday Gift Set. In case you haven’t heard, you can sign in your acount with Sephora to get the privilege for free birthday gift minis during your birthday month at any Sephora stores near you.

I’ve tried a few lip products by Bite Beauty which I adore so I’m really excited to try out these two pretty standard neutral shades!

#Bite lipstick
$24

First thing first is the Matte Crème Lip Crayon in the shade Glacé. It’s such a pretty Dusty Mauve that’s highly pigmented and long-lasting. I love and wear it a lot!

This matte color swatches so beautifully!

Matte Cream Lip swatch

It’s matte and it’s creamy! What’s that not to love! The formula isn’t drying at all and the finishing is just so gorgeous. Perfect matte which looks right up my street! If you’re a matte lipstick wearer like me, it’s a must-have!

#Bite Lipstick
Regular size: $26

Moving on I got a deluxe size Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai. It’s described as a Mauve Brown which really pretty. On their website, they claim this stuff is made with natural and organic ingredients which I find very assuring.

I can confirm it keeps your lips moisturized and a slight minty balm when I had it on. The formula feels really creamy and nice on the lips without being too sticky or too thick to use year round. The consistency is really great and did I mentioned that it glides on like a dream!

#Bite Lipstick Color Swatch

I’m loving this lip color! It’s wearable for any occasion and it’s really just a beautiful neutral shade for anyone.

One is more gorgeous than the other so I can’t possibly choose my favorite but I’ve to say the mauve brown is a strong contender. I like that it makes my teeth look so much whiter. Once I put it on, I don’t want to take it off! This one has to be my absolute favorite which I also wearing today in the photo below!

Bite Amuse Bouche
#LOTD I’m wearing “Chai” for this look
Bite Agave
#everydayagave   L: Agave Sugar Lip Scrub   R:  Agave Lip Balm

Last but not least, is the Agave. This is my first time trying them and were really excited. Made with natural agave nectar that helps lock in the moisture giving your lips that hydration it needs and will thank you later.

So what is Agave actually! Well, Agave is known for it’s restorative and healing qualities but not only does it restore and heal it also moisturize the skin leaving your lips looking and feeling amazing.

Let’s talk about the Agave Sugar Lip Scrub first. It’s super easy to use and does exactly what it says on their website. I like to just use my finger to swirl this product over my lips and get rid of any chapped areas. For a kissably soft lips, you don’t want to let this slip away! 

Be it if you’re a person who’s always on the go or staying put in front of your mirror doing lip swatches, Agave Lip Balm is what your lips needs throughout the day!

I’ve been wearing this everyday since I got it and this stuff never fails to impress me. Applying it before bed gives me the softest lips the next day, so I was over the moon when I found out it comes in handy, on-the-go stick version too. It’s my current go to and I just know that they’ll for you too. I definitely need one in standard size!

What you need to know is that Bite Beauty does not contain parabens, phthalates, or sulfates. Bite is cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified! 

Enough said, Bite Beauty is the best lip products brand out there and I love them! If you’re new to this brand you need to try them!

If you’re a Bite Beauty fan like me, comment down below and let me know what your favorite product is.

Thanks so much for taking the time out from your busy schedule to stop and read this. I truly appreciate it!

Sephora Favorites: Give Me Some Nude Lip – Which One Won?

 

Hey guys! What’s up this week? Today I’ve a new series coming to you and it’s the “Which One Won?” I got this inspiration after watching my favorite beauty youtuber talking about it.

If you’re new to my blog, Hello & Welcome! Come and join us and I would love it if you could click the subscribe button on the right hand side.

If you’re struggling to find the perfect NUDE shade for spring, you’re not alone. Trust me, I’ve been there and I understand how it feels like. What I did differently this time is having this Sephora Favorites set for lip. This is a great set if you want to try out a nice range of nudes! I was never able to pick out a nude for myself, but this set made it easier to see which colors would work for me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This Sephora Favorites set launched about a week ago online and because I’ve 2-day flash shipping, I already have it in my hot little hands.

As you know, nude lips are all the rage. I don’t love all nude lips, but I’ve begun to enjoy some mauve/pink nudes a lot. My trick is to basically tried out all these favorite nudes that best compliment my lip color. Continue reading if you care to know which nude ones win?

I’m excited to get started.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The set contains five lipsticks and a lip pencil and comes in a cute pink lip shaped box. It retails for $28 USD/$33 CND. So, you get two full sized products plus three deluxe sized items isn’t a bad deal. Now it just depends on if those full sizes make the set worth it, right!

In this set, you’ll get the following:

Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb (beige nude)
Buxom® Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian (nude)
Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner in 05 In The Buff (satin nude)
Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn (creamy nude rose)
Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Queen B (matte soft mauve)
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in 1993 Comfort Matte (medium brown)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This set is from Sephora’s Spring Collection 2017.

So, I think I’ll start with something that I’ve been wearing and loving.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This item is quite a treat for someone like me who will probably never pay for a full size Marc Jacobs. I’ve the same mini in the shade Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and totally love the formula and the lovely shade.

This one is the Marc Jacob’s Le Marc Lip Crème in Slow Burn. Look how cute and luxe the packaging is! I really love this nude shade very much. I would say the shade and consistency to be of creamy nude rose. I like that it gives my lips that my lips but better kinda look. I know I’m going to have a good wear of it. It’s definitely not going last long but I will enjoy it till it runs out.

Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Really, could Too Faced have found a longer name for this lipstick? This is a 0.08 oz/ 2.3 ml in Queen B which is a soft mauve matte. The consistency of lip cream is great on this one. Not overly drying and it glides like a dream. It feels comfortable on lips and no tacky feeling on it.

Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The next one is called Honeycomb which is described as a nude beige. Honestly, this is my first love with Bite lipsticks.  I’ve always wanted to try this brand and glad that I did. They’re comfortable to wear and the color payoff is very good. It makes me look a little washout with this nude.

Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This lip liner is one of their full size lip product from this box. It’s in the shade In the Buff which is of a satin nude. I find that this shade works really well with all the other shades in the box.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The second full size product is this beautiful medium brown nudes, but this brown is rubbing me the wrong way. It’s giving me a dark brown vibe, but it could be different on the lips or skin toned.

Buxom® Full-On Lip Cream

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The shade I got here is White Russian. I would say this is shade  can simply described as nude. It has a pleasant cooling and minty type of tingle on lips but doesn’t sting. This is the palest of all the shades in the box.

I love the color selections in this set. They’re all nude, but different nudes – pinky, brown, mauve… they’re all amazing! Note that, a  full size Urban Decay lipstick retails for ($21 CAD) and Estee Edit liner ($24 CAD), both of which are in full size.

nude-lips-swatches

I’ve voted and Marc Jacob Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème is the winner! I’ve light to medium skin-tone and this shade suit my lips perfectly. Finally, I’ve found my perfect suitor!

This set is definitely a bang for your buck. If you’re on the fence to pick the products, this set is a great way to try a lot about without breaking your wallet.I think their favorites sets are always a great value and this one is no different.

Let me ask you this, if you’ve the chance to try out different brands and colors for a super price – would you take it? My answer is obvious, I’d take it anytime.

Overall, I ‘m happy that I decided to pick this up! Love the great value and good quality brands. They’re perfect, I couldn’t ask for me. This is a limited edition set, so if you’re in the market for a nude lipsticks then I recommend you put your order in now. It’s retailed for $33 CND ($103 value) on Sephora’s website.

Clarins Paris|Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick – Hit or Miss

 

This weekend was super mellow, we stayed in Friday and my hunny bear picked up some take out food for dinner and we just relaxed and caught up on some TV. Since coming back from vacation, I’ve been pretty busy coming back to blogging. I was also excited for the get ready to school stuff for my little guy. So yeah, lots of emotion brewing and happening for the past weeks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Anyways, Now I’m all ready to take the week head on! (giggle).

While I was on vacation several weeks ago, it rained on the second day and we decided to be indoors and so we stopped by Winners (Canadian Retail Stores).

If you’re a long time follower, you already know that I’m a beauty junkie! I love to try new products and trends and when I saw this Clarins Paris Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick there,  had to get it and give it a go. I was really excited with this one. I posted it on my Instagram and shared a lip swatch if you like to check them out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For the past few days, I’ve been wearing it daily and I really don’t have anything bad to say about this sheer lipstick. Before I delve into my thoughts and opinion on the product, I want to say that I love Clarins skincare products and this is my first experience testing out the lipstick. If you’ve any recommendations on their makeup products you want me to try, don’t forget to leave comments below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let’s talk about the lipstick. I love the silver bullet packaging. Very sleek and looks luxe. There is a logo embossed on the top cap. The shade I got is in Coral Tulip.

I don’t feel that I wear a lot of makeup, but would say I wear a lot of products. That might sound contradicting, but I mean that I don’t wear heavy makeup. If that make sense!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It feels comfortable on lips. Looks like the color of my lips only better. Quite pigmented and it glides like a dream. It gives a shimmery and pretty lips. I really like the shade of coral for summer and this is just a perfect timing.

Overall I really like Clarins Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick a lot but I don’t think it’ll be a repeat buy for me. Don’t get me wrong, I really like it but not love love. I prefer lipstick which is more opaque in formula most of the time. I wouldn’t suggest this product solely as a lipstick but definitely recommend it as a lip gloss.

What products do you like from Clarins’ range? Leave your comments below.

Available on Clarins Paris website, drugstores and Winners.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you in my next blog.

Makeup Revolution MATTE Lipsticks- Review & Swatches

 

Hey guys! Hope you week if off to a great start.

Another new Makeup Revolution London review today, at least to me! A few weeks ago, I ordered some beauty products online and here are one of the many I got. For some of you, you might’ve seen it appeared on my Instagram feed. But here is the gist, you guys!

I’m super excited to do color swatches and try them on seriously. I must say my hunt for red matte lipstick ends here for now. Many of you might have known that I love a good matte lipstick and red is my favorite color besides nude.

So anyways, let’s start …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The two products I wanted to features are the Rose Gold Lipsticks in Red Carpet and Iconic Pro Lipstick in Duel Matte and obviously both are from Make Up Revolution London. So yay!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Love the cute bullet packaging, especially the rose gold one on my right. The black tube reminds me of the Mac Lipsticks. And you can see the color at the bottom of the clear tube.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First and foremost, Iconic Pro Lipstick in Duel Matte – I’m a sucker for matte lipsticks and I knew I would fall head over heels for these two babes. 

The Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro Lipstick line has 20 lipsticks in total with a fabulous mix of shades from nudes to brights and classic reds to vampy dark hues. A wide color selections that fit everyone.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just look how fabulous the shape and color of this lipstick, please. This is a beautiful true red and eye-catching lipstick that’s not over the top in my opinion. It’s totally wearable and I know it would suit a vast majority of people. The formula is richly pigmented and  it goes on  ever so smoothly. I am really impressed with how pigmented these lipsticks are.

Another thing I wanted to mention is that I don’t feel that there’s any tugging or patchy finish on lips. I love the formula and yes, it feels very comfortable.

There is a hint of smell on this lipstick but it’s scented enough to be pleasant without being overpowering. It wouldn’t cause me headache like some other brands do.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I find that they do stain the lips a little which I don’t mind at all as I find that as the color wears off, I’m still left with a little color underneath. I would say that the staying power is about 6-7 hours. So, I’m not complaining!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve also been wearing this lipstick the last one week or so and I think now is the perfect time to share my thoughts on this. So, let’s get to the review and see what I have to say about it.

This rose bullet feels lightweight yet looks luxurious. I like this packaging for it looks cute and sleek. I’m quite impressed with the long lasting formula and color payoff. It’s definitely something I’ll go back and order a few more for backups.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This shade is more of a true, traditional red.  It has a sexy and classically feminine look to it. I love love it! Excellent pigmentation and gorgeous matte finish without having the dry feeling on lips like some matte lipsticks do.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These lipsticks comes with an affordable price tag and I would definitely recommend you all to try them.

Conclusion – The red shades are absolutely fabulous and I can see those that love red lipsticks really enjoying these as much as I do.

Have you given either of these products a whirl? Let me know what you think of them in the comments below! I love to read what you think.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I’ll see you guys again on the next one. Bye!

Best Cruelty Free BH Ultimate Lips To Go – Review & Swatch

 

 

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog 🙂

Good Morning everyone! I’ve been awake since half 6 this morning –  nice and early today, currently sipping on a cup of coffee and hoping that this will help a few of you in some way!

I’m very excited to publish my post this morning and planning to write another two more reviews hopefully.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today, I’m going to be taking about this gorgeous Ultimate Lips To Go 6 Color Lipstick Palette by BH Cosmetics and as you can see they’re colorful and oh-so pretty!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are 6 glorious shades in this palette. All of each are equally pretty than the other. This palette is definitely something for everyone whether you’re up for a red dark plum lips to coral wearer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This palette is cruelty free and here I’m sharing the ingredients this lip products contained on this compact packaging.

Keep scrolling to see something cool….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like the color selections in this palette and look how sleek and compact the packaging is. You can simply throw it in your purse and touch-up whenever you want, girl! It’s so convenient and oh yes, did I also mentioned it came with a lip brush! Yay!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My only complain is that the packaging is without a mirror, which didn’t bother me at all. I only do the touch-up in the “Ladies”/”Rest Room anyways.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now, behold for these epic awesomeness. Aren’t they the prettiest for a good value!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sharing here the color swatches – very pigmented, smooth and glides on lips like a dream. I’m loving it and wearing a mixed of coral and mauve colors today. Let me point it out that these lipsticks last quite well.

Capture For everyday lips Capture Ombre lips Korean  For ombre lips Korean

I’ve noticed especially with the darker shades, is that they turn into stains on my arm after doing the swatches. Honestly, I really wouldn’t mind having lip stain on especially after my lipstick faded.

If you haven’t seen this from BH Cosmetics yet, then I’d definitely recommend you go and check this product. A DEFINITE KEEPER FOR BEGINNERS OR PRO MAKEUP LOVERS.

This amazing lipstick palette is for $5.00 when you purchase more than $25.00 from BH Cosmetics. I’m not sure if they still have this promotion up but do check out this product when they put them as permanent line.

Have you seen this on Bh online website? Would you pick up this palette? As always I absolutely love reading your comments and still have a lot to get through!

Hope you all enjoy this post, the product and the look and I can’t wait to see what you all think!

Sharon xoxo

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’re 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.

Thanks for taking the time to read and I’ll see you very soon :) Bye guys!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

New for Spring 2016, Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colors CAD$7.99  at Walmart are a range of matte liquid lipsticks that promise bold long-lasting color with a hydrating comfortable wear.Available in seven charming shades from neutrals to mid tone pink, coral to bright reds.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I find the packaging on this Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colors is super adorable. The packaging is of metal tin casing with lovely floral design on.  There’s also a mirror inside the lid of each tin when it’s flipped open. That’s pretty cool for a $7.99 lipstick. in my opinion.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The packaging of this lip color is an oval shaped see-through tube which is really neat. It has a long flat applicator.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let’s talk about the formula. I really love this amazing pigmentation of this matte lip color. This applies smoothly and evenly, with full color coverage in a single coat. It doesn’t take much at all to get a lot of color, and the color really sticks around.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m in love with this Cherry Blossom shade. It’s gorgeous and flattering on me when I applied it. I didn’t find the matte formula to be extra drying. This lip color is comfortable and light weight on my lips. I’m quite impressed with this velvet matte and satisfied with the appearance it delivers. Love this!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Overall,  Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colors ($7.99) is a really nice product for its performance and excellent color payoff…and the price is right! Not to mention, the packaging is so cute! Hard Candy product is also not tested on animal.

Start applying your favorite lipstick as you normal would.

Want more intensify lips, then apply the lighter color lipstick on the upper lip too.

Question Tuesday! Which One Would You Buy?

by source

If You’re Going To Buy Just One Lipstick, Which One Would You Buy?

First.

If bright bold red is more your speed, I suggest Makeup Forever Mat 08. Hey, it’s classic for a reason. This is the year to go out and find your perfect bold hue lipstick. This deep red has a matte, but not flat, finish.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next.

Drugstore brand L’Oreal Infallible Pro “Matte Gloss” is the perfect way to describe these lippies: In beauty industry, the words “matte” and “gloss” have never gone together. I was perplexed and give it a try. The finish is matte, and yet the texture remains buttery and flexible on lips all day. Have you seen them at your drugstores?

l'oreal infallible matte lippie

Or.

For a low budget option, this tube delivers a nice amount of hydration and color. Try Elf Moisturizing Lipstick in Party in the Buff.

Belvada Harmony Lipsticks – Photo & Color Swatches

lipstick harmony

This is a blogpost that was mentioned previously in my post. I just got the time today to share it with all of you.

Here we see two different lip colors by Belvada in Natural Earth and Elegant Maroon that is mostly warm and the other shade has some sort of pretty red undertones.

lipstick by Belvada

I snagged these refills for $2.99 each instead of the original price of $10.00. I’m excited and thrilled with this great steal.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The product has some sweet scents on both lipsticks but not overwhelming. It glides beautifully and I love my lip appearance. Yes, they’re lovely!

The staying power is good. It lasted for 3-4 hours for me. Again, I would point out that its fall and the weather is getting drier. This product lasts the drier weather simply because of the moisturizing formula.

The net wt is 3.4g. This lipstick is true to its color and I really like the smooth and amazing pigmentation.

The mini lipstick comes with a frosty plastic lid. This though is a good, convenient way to see the shades when it comes to deciding the colors.

My lips wearing Natural Earth. A lovely nude shade for everyday wear. Love Love it! The size is cute and easy to bring in your purse if you need to touch-up. Other than that, it’s super light and so convenient. Just to point this out, this lipstick is the size of my thumb.

The Elegant Maroon really caught my eye when I was picking up the shades. It’s the perfect lip color for fall and the holidays. For more intense bold lips, I could use a darker lip liner to fill my lips to be more popped or look like Kylie Jenner‘s lips for holiday looks.

Here is the color swatch of the Elegant Maroon. Amazingly gorgeous shade and pigmentation.

They have a better pay off and are easy to work with. The formula is moisturizing and comfortable on the lips. I have tried four different shades to date and they are pretty impressive.

Personally, I am enjoying these lip products. I was so glad that I got these on special discounted price for I would have not spent $10.00 for a mini refill lip products.

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.

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?!

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.

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.

Lastly, the price point for Joe Fresh’s lipsticks is only $6!  In today’s make-up world, $6 usually doesn’t 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 🙂

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

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.
