The Lipstick that Looks Expensive But is Not

“That lipstick looks gorgeous” a girl who works in Sephora told me while I was checking out some purchases, I was like “Thank You it’s CoverGirl” she could not believe it; now I don’t normally receive these type of compliments,  but when I do I have to write about it.

And I wanted to talk about this lipstick because it really is a very faltering color and is not a high end brand, two of my favorite things. So I came up with this lipstick watching a YouTube video (not a surprise) and I found the color beautiful.

Divine Wine is a color that when you might see it you may think “this color will not be good for me”, basically because it looks purple, but when you apply it it truly transforms into this amazing vibrant color, in my lips is a little bit berry. Also, it lasts a long time and leaves a tint on your lips when it fades. I truly recommend this if you are looking for a pop of color this season.

New Drugstore Lip Products

So I have been noticing that the last couple of month’s drugstore brands have come with amazing lip products. As you know I am currently at Quito, but I had a week off and went to the States, of course I had to make a trip to CVS and Walgreens.

Today I wanted to share with you these products I got and give you my thoughts on them.

NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu. In my trip I discovered that you can get NYX in Target now (YAY!). So this is a neutral gloss, very nice color with a nice vanilla scent and shiny. It does not dry my lips at all which is something I really like from NYX products. Downside, this is not a long lasting product so you would have to re-apply several times a day.

NYX Butter Lip Balm in Ladyfingers. I LOVE this product; it reminded me of the dollar scented lip balms my mom used to buy me from the AVON catalog when I was a child. It has a fruity scent and it is colored. It comes in several colors, I love it.

2013_11 DLP 03

Maybelline The Elixir in Fuchsia Flourish. I believe these are Maybelline’s interpretation for the YSL Glossy Stains, may I say that this product is something unique, it is glossy and it does have staying power. When I first applied it I must say I felt the product being a bit sticky (which is something I don’t like that much) but the color payoff and the glossy look made me feel very satisfied with this product. Now the applicator is something very similar to the YSL ones.

Revlon Matte Lip Balm in Showy. Revlon did it again, they never cease to amaze me, these balms are GREAT. First of all it has this minty scent which I adore from Revlon products. Second of all it is moisturizing, you know how matte products tend to be drying? Well this is NOT dry, it lasts long time and color payoff is amazing.

2013_11 DLP 05

Revlon Lacquer Balm in Vivacious. I love the word Lacquer (sounds so fancy lol) this is the perfect Christmas Red Lip Color, the picture doesn’t even do justice to this vibrant red which I love. It is an amazing color, I really recommend you to get this while you can.

All in all I am happy with my lippies, and can say that I am really impressed that drugstore products keep creating great quality products at half the price of High End products.

Have you tried any of these? If so what were your thoughts?

Until Next Time,

xoxo

Review | Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquers

Hey everyone so I am back on my reviews, I have a lot of new stuff to talk about and I was pretty excited to find these on my drugstore the other day. I am talking about the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer, now they were released in the UK quite some time ago and now they came to the States, but they renamed them to Show Off Lip Lacquer, I was unsure at first that they were the same, but then I saw the display did say Apocalips (weird right?).

Anyways, I purchased two lip colors for the sake of this review the first one Apocaliptic a bright magenta color and Celestial a more neutral tone. Rimmel claims that this product has the intense and rich color of a lipstick enhanced by a smooth satin shine, ultra-intense, ultra-comfortable- it lasts all day. Packed with pure color pigments, lusciously creamy, conditioning formula promises a never-before combination of color, shine and comfort that last and last.


Now for the sake of this review I applied both of these colors and proceeded with my normal activities of the day.

Using Celestial

Using Apocaliptic

First of all these are dangerous, if you are looking for an easy application on the go this won’t give it to you because you have to be very careful when you apply them (especially the bright colored ones).

These are full coverage they are not joking. If you were expecting a tinted lip gloss let me tell you this is like a liquid lipstick.

Product is completely transferrable, after a couple of hours that I applied this product it was lunch time (and I had to eat) so this buddy got all over my food (and my chin) I was eating a sandwich and my bread had lip color all over it.

On the other hand as the product doesn’t dry, your lips won’t feel dry either.

Let me say that I’m still on the fence playing with them, if I had to pick I would go for the neutral colors only because they are easier to apply and you don’t have to be THAT careful when you apply them (and eat with them). But, if you really want a BRIGHT and VIBRANT color this product will give it to you, you just need to be very careful and have a mirror close to you.

Now for the people who are in the run and have no time for checking in the mirror (honestly who does), I would not recommend it because honestly I ate and had lip color all over my chin which is not something I would enjoy.

Has anyone used these so far? Did you like them?

Until Next Time,

xoxo

Princess Peach

The other day while rumbling into my makeup stash I noticed that my world has been twirling towards color peach I don’t know what it is about it but I am just obsessed in love with the color itself.

Tarte Natural Cheek Tint in Achiote. I love this product, when I first used it I was not very sure because it is a little bit light for my skin tone but honestly this product is pretty buildable and works amazing as a base or for the days when I only want a bit of color.

Soap & Glory A Great Kisser Lip Moisture Balm. You know I am a sucker for balms and things that smell nice, well after hearing great things about this product I went and purchased it I do like it because of the peach scent it it goes clear and I like using it again on days that I don’t want anything else.

Jordana LOL Super Shinny Lip Gloss in BTW. Ok this is shinny and I like using this one on top of a neutral lip; it smells amazing and price is great at only $1.99 USD at Walgreens.

Revlon Lipstick in Smoked Peach. Love the color this is a great product, the only thing is that as it is a matte product you need to hydrate your lips before applying it.

Ulta Nail Polish. Sorry guys could not find the name of this, but this is an old one and I believe this did not make it for the revamp of the Ulta Polishes. However this color is just gorgeous I love it because it goes with every outfit I could ever think of.

And I forgot to add it to the picture, but right now my favorite candle is Peach Bellini from Bath and Body Works I have a mini-size and I just love it.

Do you Like Peach Color?

Until Next Time
