Archives For liquid lipstick

I noticed it had been a while since I last did a Top 5 (June 30th, wow!), so I figured it was time for one! I did a post on my favorite lip products last summer (probably one earlier this year too), and it has changed a bit since then so a new one was in order! Feel free to share your favorite products in the comments, I’d really like to read about them ♥

  1. Maybelline – Galactic Mauve LipstickLook at how little I have left of it! I rarely ever finish a lipstick, but I have been using this one almost every day since I purchased it. Luckily I’m still as in love with it now as I was back then. I have two other varieties of mauve shades I have to finish before I’m going to repurchase this, but it will definitely be repurchased in the future.

  2. NYX – Devil’s Food Cake Butter Gloss This is honestly a gloss that I probably never will tire of. It smells so sweet, so good and it feels really comfortable on the lips. It’s not a sticky gloss, it doesn’t last forever but I honestly don’t mind reapplying it. Also, can you tell that I love purple? 😉 If I could, I would wear purple lipsticks/glosses at all times. I initially expected this one to be very dark, since the bottle is exactly that, but it’s not bad at all even though it’s lighter than what I thought.

  3. Makeup Revolution – Lip Euphoria Liquid Lipstick from Ultimate Reds KitOh hey, something that is not purple! This one is more of a dusty rose. It doesn’t dry down matte, but it’s not exactly shiny either. It looks really pretty and it has a fairly good longevity, considering the lip kit it comes in costs around £3. I love using this when I need a more “natural” look.

  4. Australian Gold – 30 spf Lip BalmThis is one of the best smelling lip balms I have owned, apart from any smelling like vanilla. This smells like a minty orange drink and it’s great. I also love that it has spf, I have used this frequently over the summer, even though we haven’t really had any sunny weather. ( I do wear spf during winter too, don’t worry!)

  5. Blistex – Lip Relief CreamA true lifesaver when you have really chapped lips or cold sores. This guy cools down, moisturizes, nourishes, tingles and makes your lips feel so good! It kinda tastes like tooth paste, but I can get past that since it works so well! A little goes a long way with this, you’d end up with white lips if you apply too much.. I speak from experience!

Have you ever tried to dye your eyebrows?

I sure haven’t, I’m terrified of ever putting anything harmful near my eyes. However, i saw this trend in many articles (mostly about catwalk trends), done with both liquid lipsticks, colored mascaras and eye shadows and I decided I wanted to try it. I’ve read in many places that you can use a shade that matches your hair to dye your brows to make it look softer and more ‘natural’, but I don’t really think that pink or red brows would ever really look natural.. Well, ginger red brows would look natural!

If I was to follow the same logic, I should have just used a black or dark brown pencil, something I do already so it wouldn’t really be too exciting. However, if you’re going to wear a bright wig, or a wig that differs from your natural color, you should probably try to match it. This is often done with cosplay, where the characters have either blue, pink, red or any other colored hair and it would be “natural” for them to have brows in the same shade.

I looked through a whole bunch of pictures and decided on trying three different colors, with three different application methods.

Red

For this one I used two of the liquid lipsticks I have from Makeup Revolution. One was a bright red, and the other was slightly darker. I wanted it to look like the color had a bit of depth. I used an angled brush to apply the color, following the natural shape of my brows. It was a bit messy and I had to clean up the edges a lot with a smaller brush soaked with oil infused micellar water. The red was the first color I tried, I honestly should have saved it for last because it was so difficult to remove. I think it would look nicer if my hair was still as bright red as it was, now it’s orange-y brown.

Blue

For the blue I used a eye shadow pencil. The one I had was from L’Oreal and it was in the shade Ocean Blue. One thing I hadn’t noticed was that it contains a bit of shimmer. It didn’t look bad but I wasn’t expecting it. The pencil is very soft so it felt and looked kind of like a pomade. It wasn’t the worst, but it didn’t feel too good after a while. The blue was also difficult to remove because this eye pencil is very pigmented.

Gold

You wouldn’t have guessed that it was gold, right? My gold obsession lives on and I decided trying to have gold eyebrows would be like the best idea ever. It could maybe have been that if I had a liquid gold product. What I used here was a wet eye shadow brush and golden eyeshadow, the one from the 24k NUDES palette from Maybelline. The color didn’t show up too well on camera but it looked slightly metallic in real life at least. I think this turned out the worst out of the three and I would never try it again..

All in all, I think colored brows would work if they had a purpose, like completing a cosplay costume or for festivals and whatnot!

Have you tried out colored brows before? Is it a trend you could have worn?

As mentioned and shown in the post about the Makeup Revolution 2016 Storage Chest, it came with three different lip kits, each containing a liquid lipstick, a cream lipstick and a lip gloss. I got a request for showing how they looked on and here it is! Sometimes swatches just isn’t enough to decide if it would be worth it so seeing how they look on could definitely help. My favorite before I tried them on was the dark purple, but it’s so messy! You can see in the picture in its sectioned that it smeared out quite a bit. I don’t think there is a lot to say about each kit, the shades don’t have any names, they just named the different types. “Euphoria” for the liquid lipstick, “Amplification” for the cream and “Sheer” for the gloss. You can use them all together or just use them separately. The pictures go in the same order as the types I mentioned in the previous sentence, liquid then cream then gloss.

♥ Ultra Nudes

These were a bit more orange than I expected, but still pretty! I really expected them to be more brown.

♥ Ultra Reds

These were my favorites!

♥ Ultra Vamp

These were the messiest out of the bunch, especially the purple cream lipstick.

I think maybe the darker purple shades could work with a good lip liner! All in all the lip kits were comfortable to wear, I didn’t quite care for the slightly chemical scent but it wasn’t too noticeable when I was wearing them on my lips. I’d recommend these for anyone who want to try out new shades as these are very cheap! I think they go for £2 or £3 per kit.

Have you tried any of these kits before?

Recently I was looking at the TAM Beauty website and I stumbled upon this beauty. It is still available there so you can get it for yourself, it is very discounted and it’s pretty much a bargain now! ( It’s on sale for £30, RRP is £80) This is a pretty sturdy storage chest that comes with a variety of make up items and tools that every girl needs. The doors have magnets in them so they will stay closed when it’s on display or being transported somewhere. It comes with a plastic sleeve you can keep around it to, to keep your make up extra safe.

IMAG0078

The chest has twelve compartments/drawers and each of them contains one set or one item when you open them. My package contained three bonus items too because TAM Beauty includes free samples for a limited time so I received 15 items in total. The bonus items were Velvet lip lacquers and a sample of a duo brow powder, which coincidentally was in the shade I normally use.

IMAG0129

All 12 items/sets + the bonus velvet lippies & brow powder.


IMAG0099

The first item, which was in the largest drawer on the top was their Iconic Nudes brush collection! I have been wanting this for a while so having it included in this set is amazing! The brushes are so incredibly soft and I really look forward to play with these. It is a 9 piece set, including a powder brush, contour brush, flat blending brush, prime & correct brush, conceal brush, flat eye shadow brush, round eye shadow brush, angled eye brow brush and a fine eye shadow brush.

For the rest, I will combine drawers, or else this would be a mile long!


IMAG0102

These are the small drawers on the left side and they contain these; Their blending sponge (that is sold in a bundle with the brushes), a Vivid baked highlight in “Peach lights”, an Ultra Pro Contour palette and a Trio Lipstick Amplification kit in “Ultra Vamp”.

These were the small drawers on the right side, one item in each. They contained the Ultra Face Basic Primer, Trio Trio Lipstick Amplification kit in “Ultra nude” and “Ultra reds” and an eye brow kit. I only swatched the actual eye brow shades (4 powders and 2 creams), the waxes and highlights didn’t show up well on camera because I’m so hecking pale.

IMAG0117

The first three going down on the left side, the others are on the right side of the palette.

IMAG0118

The “Ultra reds” on the left, “Ultra nude” on the right. Liquid lip, cream and then gloss.


IMAG0126

These items are from the three drawers in the middle. These drawers contained a “Ultimate favorites” eye shadow palette with 32 (!) shades, a duo face sculpt compact and a HD Pro Strobe palette. They’re all very pretty!

IMAG0128

Swatches of the creams first, and the two powders. A good variety of undertones.

I didn’t do swatches of the contour compact because the shades are pretty much identical to the contour palette, and swatching 32 eye shadows would take so long! They are very soft to the touch and very pigmented though so I’m excited to see what kind of looks they can make.


IMAG0101

And here are the bonus items I received. The velvet lip lacquers didn’t feel too great on the lips, once they dried they became very sticky, but if I paired them with glosses from the lip kits they felt a lot better. It’s a shame that they end up being so sticky though because I love the colors, they’re very vibrant and not really patchy at all.

IMAG0120

“I keep lying for you” on the left and “Rebel” on the right.


 

So that was it for the Makeup Revolution storage chest! What did you think? Would you say it was worth it for £30? I’m very happy with it at least, and now I get more storage for my other make up too, I love organization!

♥ Lush Sweet Lips Scrub

20170118_124134

A good lip scrub is always necessary if you want to keep your lips soft and nice and get rid of dead skin. It doesn’t really make anything worse if it tastes like chocolate and vanilla either! My absolute go-to scrub is this one, Sweet Lips. I would probably love the other chocolate-y scrubs they have but they contain ingredients I’m allergic to so that’s a no-go for me! Sadly this is a Kitchen exclusive so I cannot get my hands on it very often, luckily a tub of it lasts forever. However, if you don’t want to spend like five quid on a scrub, making your own with sugar, oil and flavorings works too!

♥ Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Nourishing Lip Balm

20170118_124023

I kind of purchased this on a whim a while ago because i had a 40% off discount code, but i do not regret purchasing it at all as it is most likely the best lip balm I have ever tried. It comes in a handy tube (they have one that comes in a pot in the same formula too), so it’s easy to bring with me everywhere. It has a yellow-ish color to it but it goes on transparent. It also kind of smells like some sort of sour apple candy, which is kind of weird but it doesn’t bother me too much. It claims to show good results for eight hours after applying and i feel like it actually does! I usually apply a rather thick layer of this when i go to bed and wake up with soft lips. I also periodically apply it throughout the day if i need some extra care.

♥ Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid ‘Nude Flush’

20170118_124246

When it comes to liquid lipsticks, especially matte ones, Maybelline really surprised me! After reading horror stories about other mattes that completely dried out your lips and whatnot, i was not very keen on trying any. But then i got my hands on one of these and i instantly fell in love. It feels so smooth and nice on the lips and the finish on it is great. It stays on for a long time too, so if you want to try a creamy feeling matte liquid lipstick, give one of the vivid mattes a try! This shade in particular is called Nude Flush and it’s definitely a deep pink shade.

♥ MDMFLOW Creamy Matte Lipstick ‘Bossy’

20170118_124206

This one has kind of the same feel and formula as the liquid from Maybelline, but as you can see, it’s a solid, ‘normal’ lipstick. It is definitely more of a brown nude compared to the other one but it looks so nice on the lips! I have always loved a deep chocolate color on others but i never thought i could ever pull something like that off myself. I kind of wish it was a little bit darker but i love it the way it is now too!
