Review of Kaleidos Makeup Flower Punk Collection

Review of Kaleidos Makeup Flower Punk Collection

It's been ages since I did a makeup review, but I haven't really had a reason to. I've been very good about using the makeup I have rather than getting anything new. But the Kaleidos Makeup Flower Punk collection caught my eye, so I got almost everything. Well, almost all of it. I got the lip clay sets and eyeshadow palettes. As I don't really need lip masks, temporary tattoos, and coloring book.…

Swatching Anastasia Beverly Hills Deep Neutral Liquid Lipsticks

Swatching Anastasia Beverly Hills Deep Neutral Liquid Lipsticks

I recently went through my lipstick collection and realized a lot of them were expired, and very limited on what brands I had in there. So after cleaning up the collection, I noticed a massive lack of brown tones which are my ultimate favorite shades for lipsticks. So I decided to get the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick 10-piece set collection that was on sale for $60. Considering each is normally $20, this was a good deal. Apparently this collection contains 8 new shades and 2 classics.…

The History of Lipstick

The History of Lipstick

One of my favorite products of all time is lipstick, specifically liquid lipstick. I find it fascinating to see how far various cosmetics products have gone over the course of the years. Five years ago I would never think lipstick would come in anything other than a cream. If it was in a bottle and liquid, it was a gloss not lipstick. And now I can't imagine not having a dry matte lipstick that lasts all day without any touch-ups. So I thought I would do a little series here on the blog about the history of cosmetics products. Today in particular will be all about lipsticks.…

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Thirsty Summer Collection Review & Swatches

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Thirsty Summer Collection Review & Swatches

When Jeffree Star announced his summer collection for 2018, I was torn. I have been going through my collection and got away around 40% of my liquid lipsticks. And a good percentage of my eyeshadow palettes (I didn't compare it before and after) to save space while I'm planning on moving. But after a few weeks of its release, I couldn't help myself I had to get it. And this is the first time I've actually purchased one of their palettes, though I've had the others on my wish list for a while.…

Flower Beauty Miracle Matte Lip Wear Test, Review & Swatches

Flower Beauty Miracle Matte Lip Wear Test, Review & Swatches

I have been stuck in a runt between two liquid lipstick loves of mine: ColourPop and Jeffree Star Cosmetics. And there's nothing wrong with that. I love the formulas of their liquid lipsticks. But I wanted to branch out and try some other formulas, and one that caught my attention was the Flower Beauty Miracle Matte Lip. Which is a new brand at Ulta from Drew Barrymore, but I believe they've been in various Walmarts for years though they only recently started appearing in ones near me. So I picked up three shades as the selection at Walmart was extremely picked over.…

Makeup Clear-Out: Liquid Lipsticks I’m Parting Ways With

Makeup Clear-Out: Liquid Lipsticks I’m Parting Ways With

This is a subject I keep looking at in my makeup collection and now I needed to edit the collection down, but I love having a lot of different options. But honestly I reach for the same five shades every day and rarely reach for something different. It's like in the back of my mind I have an evil Kermit whispering, "But this one has different undertones." I've been apartment hunting the past few weeks and every place I go, the first thing that pops into my mind is where the hell are you going to store all of your products. You have to much, you have to cut it back. So I'm finally doing that regardless of how much it hurts. 'Cause let's be honest a lot of these shades I've had two years or more and liquid lipsticks expire after about 2 years. So right on that border.…

ColourPop Ultra Matte Holiday Collection 2017 Swatches & Updated Review

ColourPop Ultra Matte Holiday Collection 2017 Swatches & Updated Review

About two years ago I first tried ColourPop's Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks, and noticed after my first impressions post I noticed my lips were insanely dried out. So I got rid of all my Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and switched to Ultra Satin. Then a few months ago, I decided I would try out a few of them again since they changed the formula. Or so I heard, and the new shades did have a new formula that made them feel nicer on the lips. But any that were part of the initial launch, still left my lips feel like the life was drained out of them. When the holiday collection was launched, it was the Ultra Matte formula while the fall collection was the Ultra Satin. So I was a little cautious about getting these lipsticks, but caved in on cyber monday when they were $4 instead of $6. As that made it a little more tempting to get these six shades. Plus all of these shades are in my absolute favorite shade range.…

ColourPop Fall Eyeshadows & Ultra Satin Lips

ColourPop Fall Eyeshadows & Ultra Satin Lips

One of my favorite brands is ColourPop, they're products are typically really good quality and are drugstore prices. So I love trying almost everything they come out with that I know I will use. So when I saw they came out with their fall collection that was made up of ultra satin lips, pressed powder shadows, super shock shadows, and blushes. I don't really reach for super shock shadows that I got as I don't really love cream eye products and I hardly wear blush. So I skipped these items from the fall collection by ColourPop.…
