Swatch Video: J.Cat Beauty Liptitude 24/7 Lip StainsWIld

jcat lipstick

Hey loves,

I uploaded a video to my Youtube channel last night! I think Friday may become my upload day? I dunno, still working on it. Anyway, I did a review + lip swatches of 5 out of 14 of the new J.Cat Beauty hydrating lip stains.

A few quick things:

These are highly pigmented.

They are semi matte.

The red ones do stain.

I love the heck out of this formula and the colors I swatched.

I bought all of these myself, except for the two that I got off Ipsy, but I also pay for that subscription every month.

The more I try from J.Cat Beauty, the more impressed I am. This formula is awesome, and until the August 1st you can get 25% off on these on their site.

Please watch my video and let me know what you think and if you like lip swatch videos!

Coming next week: Swatches of the Wet n Wild “High Flying Colors” palette

J.Cat Beauty Lip Paints: Review + Lip Swatches

j.cat lip paint

Hey loves,

Today for Swatch Saturday I actually have a video! I have been trying out the J.Cat Beauty lip paints that I ordered for a bit now, and I finally sat down and did a review with lip swatches for my Youtube channel! Lip swatch videos are very intense, so I apologize if a few of the darker colors are not very pretty looking. My mouth was on fire towards the end.

Anyway, just a little tidbit: J.Cat is a cruelty free and very affordable brand. They seem to have a ton of lip products, and I am impressed with almost everything I have tried, and I want to order more.

In the lip paint line, there are 36 colors. The packaging and color range is very reminiscent of the OCC lip tars. They are pretty different though. I would say the J.Cat lip paints are similar in concept and shade range, but pretty different in terms of the finish and lasting power. A few of these do go on patchy and need building up, but the ones that are patchy make incredible mixing shades! Overall, I do enjoy these lip paints and they are fun to play around with!

I’m considering doing a separate video with all of my favorite mixing combinations using these. Please let me know if you would be interested in something like that, and what colors you would want to see me create! I do know a bit about color theory. Not enough to brag about, but enough to get by.

Everything else that you may need/want to know is in the description underneath the video! Please watch it and let me know what you think. Also, if you’re not subscribed to me please do so! I’m so close to 300 subscribers! So close, yet so far away.

PS- I know I spelled “review” wrong in the opening credit. Way to start a video, right? It was late, and I was tired. It happens, and I’m too lazy to delete a video and re-upload over one letter. That’s precious time that could be spent listening to music in my underwear. I’m totally kidding…

I hope you’re all having amazing days! I do plan on sitting down and catching up on comments very soon, so please don’t think I’m ignoring you! My daughters joint birthday party is this weekend and I’ve been fairly busy with that.

Ipsy Unbagging June 2015

ipsy june

Hey lovelies,

Is everyone staying cool as we march into Summer? Personally, I stay inside a lot during the Summer. I can’t stand the heat. The sweating and burns…it’s just not my idea of fun. I think I will just chill out until Fall arrives.

Anyway, it’s that time of the month where foiled envelopes filled with wee tiny samples arrive at my doorstep! Today I will be doing my Ipsy unbagging. For those that may be unfamiliar with Ipsy, it’s a beauty bag subscription that costs $10 a month and everyone receieves 4-5 deluxe sample and/or full sized products based on their beauty profile. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for a little over 2 years now, but I did take a 3 month break.

This month the theme was swimming and being poolside, hence the cute snorkeling pig in my photo.

The bag this month is black with a neon orange zipper, and the material feels like a waterproof almost bathing suit like material. I actually like this bag, and it’s small enough to keep in my diaper bag and the material would be nice to put a little bathing suit in if I take my daughters to a splash pad.

1. Tre’StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon “Kona Coffee” I was a bit confused when I pulled this out because the lid actually looks like a pencil top. I thought I was sent an opened product, but it turns out it was only the lid. This little eyeshadow crayon claims to be long lasting and creamy, and based on my swatch (will show at the end of the post) this little crayon is very smooth and creamy indeed. I’m happy that I got the dark brown color because I know I will use it, probably to smudge out my lash line on days that I want a day time smokey eye.

2. J. Cat Beauty Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain “Hikilicious” This is a full sized lip product, and I believe it is actually a new release by J. Cat. I will admit that when I saw “lip stain” my first thought was “bleh” because I don’t normally wear lip stains. If I’m not wearing something opaque on my lips there’s nothing on my lips at all. However, this product is EXTREMELY pigmented and hydrating. So far, I’m in love with it. I hope that J. Cat comes out with more colors because this formula is fantastic.

3. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer This is a deluxe sample size, and I will be honest I will not use this. I’ve sampled this before and it made my foundation look horrendous. It has that weird silicone feeling, and silicone based primers do not work at all on my skin. It looks like I applied my makeup with a stick of butter after a few hours. I’ll probably be passing this one on to someone else.

4. It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil This sample is one that I was really happy to get this month! I’ve been wanting to try out more things by It Cosmetics for awhile, and this brow pencil looks pretty neat. It comes with two sides, one being a spoolie, which is awesome. The tip of the pencil is not sharp, it’s actually oval shaped which is supposed to give a more “natural” look to the brow. I’m pretty loyal to my pomades, but I will be trying this one out. I’m a bit of a brow product junkie.

5. LaVanilla Laboratories Pure Vanilla Body Butter This is a pretty good sized sample, and it smells incredible. I put this on my hands and it smelled like I was burped on by a glorious bouquet of vanilla cookies. I prefer body butters over lotions because I find them to be more hydrating on me. Even if this wasn’t hydrating, the smell alone is intoxicating. I have a weird thing for vanilla to begin with…

That’s everything I got in my Ipsy Bag this month! I am excited about 4/5 things this month, which is pretty good in terms of beauty subscriptions.

Do you get Ipsy? What did you get?

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I will see everyone next time with some more fun things! I still have my Lip Monthly bag to review this month, and I have some tips and tricks posts that I will be doing over the next few weeks.

Have a great day, lovelies.
