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.

2013_11 DLP 00

2013_11 DLP 01

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.

2013_11 DLP 02

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.

2013_11 DLP 04

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.

2013_11 DLP 06

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

Jordana New Products and a +

Hey everyone, so today I have this small haul, basically I will be honest I bought these before my trip and were in my luggage because I honestly haven’t had any time of doing my Haul or even opening them. Anyways today was the day.

So these are from Jordana and a Plus because I got a Maybelline Baby Lips which I thought was just so cool because of the color (when I used it well meh I preferred the cherry me I already own!) however if you need an orange one that will do it.

But for the fun part, well Jordana has released quite a big range of new products; most of them fall into the tendency of products most drugstore products are now, but at a pretty inexpensive side; which is amazing if you love playing with makeup.

Now, YES I do have some swatches for you a little dark:

Baby Lips in Oh Orange! (meh, cherry me is way better in my opinion)

Jordana Twist and Shine in Nude Chic (Amazing for work and office just love it sweet scent)

Jordana Twist and Shine in Candied Coral (Very bright and nice pink)

Jordana 12 HR Made to last Eyeshadow Pencil (High Hopes for this one) Looks like a matte nude base

Jordana 12 HR Made to last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in Black Point (High Pigmentation hope it lasts)

Jordana 12 HR Made to last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in Expresso Last (Also High Pigmentation)

Jordana Fabubrow Eyebrow pencil (Not sure if this is new but I needed something for my brows)

So hopefully I have time, I will be playing with these and letting you know what I think of them but so far let me tell you they did not disappoint me in base of pigmentation and scent.

Have you tried these?

Until Next Time,

xoxo

Review | Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigments & NYC Sparkle Eye Dust

So today I have a bit of a comparison between 2 products I had the chance to try these past few days. These are Kind of New to the Makeup Community, so you could consider this a first impressions/review.

The first one comes from Maybelline you know how much I love their color tattoos so I was pretty excited when I saw a display of their new Pure Pigments; I thought what a great idea especially because most of the colors are similar to their color tattoos. Well I picked up two colors Never Fade Jade and Barely Brazen but, when I first swatch them, well you can see it for yourself, the emerald color (Never Fade Jade) looks ok (not that fancy as I was expecting) but the Barely Brazen color is just nothing (only glitter). Maybe I set my hopes too high, but I did not like them. Another thing that I don’t like is the packaging you have to literally hit the small package in order to get product out of those tiny holes, but I am guessing that if I carry that thing somewhere all product will spill and will make a mess (just saying!). Finally these are freaking expensive I think they are almost $6.00 USD which for me does not cut it. Sorry Maybelline I do love your color tattoos but these things are preposterous.



Now on the other side of the rainbow I found this little product from NYC it is called Sparkle Eye Dust in Topaze Rose. This is basically loose eye shadow in a stick it is amazing and I just love it, it comes with a sponge applicator which makes things very easy, to avoid any fallout I go first with a cream eye shadow and then apply this. I love their pigmentation alone it is just amazing, color is very pretty, and they are so inexpensive less than $3.00 USD. This product is compact so I can carry it everywhere I want without worrying if the loose shadow will spill all over.




So if I had to pick of course I chose NYC inexpensive, easy to apply, good packaging, and great pigmentation. Sorry Maybelline but the pigments suck.

Until Next Time,

xoxo
