Colourpop Ultra Satin Lipsticks Review

Hey lovelies,

I’m back into the swing of doing lipstick reviews! I’m excited, lipstick is my favorite thing to wear and review for you all. I recently picked up 6 of the new Colourpop Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks. I wanted to try them out and compare them to the ultra matte ones, and see if they were worth the hype.

I try not to do things because “youtube made me do it” but when I see something so hyped up and almost every single person is holding one of those huge PR boxes…I feel the need to try it out and put it to the test. Am I the only one here?

Anyway, these are the same price as the ultra matte ones ($6) and come in 16 different shades to start. Knowing Colourpop, that will quickly expand before we all know it and there will be about 100 to choose from.

Personally, I like these. I don’t find them to be super revolutionary and I don’t feel the need to own every single one, but they are comfortable and some of the shades are very lovely.

I go over all this in the video though. I hope you all enjoy it! If you’re not subscribed to my channel, please do so if you want. You’ll get to see when I upload first!

 

As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Nyx Lip Lingerie Review + Swatches

nix lip lingerie

Hey beauties,

I recently posted a new video on my Youtube channel! I’ve been meaning to do a review with swatches of the Lingerie lipsticks I own, and now it’s finally up! Also, I changed my lighting and I’ve been uploading in HD, which means my videos now show my true skin tone. In case you’re wondering why the sudden weird overall change.

I go over everything in the video, but overall I’m pretty happy with these. Some shades are kinda “meh” in texture, but some shades are fantastic! I like these way more than the liquid suedes. I don’t think these are a “drop everything and buy these RIGHT NOW” type of liquid lipstick, but they’re nice to play around with.

nix bedtime flirt

This shade surprised me. It’s called Bedtime Flirt, and I feel this may be the peachy nude I reach for this Spring! Very subtly sexy.

I swatched this shade a few weeks back on my Instagram. It’s called “Honeymoon” and in my opinion, it’s the best shade in this line. I own a lot of greige shades, but this one is actually different than my other ones.

If you’re interestted in watching the video, here it is:

I hope you all enjoy the review! As always, thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re all having wonderful days.

January Lip Monthly

lip monthly

Hey lovelies,

I’m here today with another unbagging! Last week, I unbagged my January Ipsy bag, and soon after, my Lip Monthly bag arrived.

If you’re unfamiliar with Lip Monthly, they’re a beauty subscription that arrives monthly at $12 per month. Their bags have been very high value the past few months, and most items included are lip products. So, this is the ideal subscription for someone that wants all the lippies…like me.

I’ve discovered a few brands thanks to Lip Monthly!

This month, there were 4 full sized products. Three lip products and a “makeup mix up” which was actually a hair product this month.

  1. Starlooks Lip Liner $6- This lip liner is a darker pink shade, which is really lovely! It’s a retractable liner, and when I swatched it, it felt smooth and was pigmented. I’m impressed considering I have despised a few Starlooks products sent to me in the past.
  2. Coastal Scents Lipstick $5.95 (shade 15)- I have never tried a Coastal Scents lipstick before! This shade is a lovely deeper red though, and we all know I love red lipstick. The packaging is pretty cute as well.
  3. City Colour Be Matte Lipstick “Latte” $4.99- I’ve reviewed the City Color lipsticks before if you want to read it click here. In a nutshell, I love this formula. Very comparable to Melt Cosmetics, and Latte is a really lovely nude shade! I think I might have to pair it with a darker liner so it won’t wash me out, but it’s a nice cool toned nude.
  4. Oscar Blandi Hair Masque $25+– This was a full sized deep hair conditioner! Mine was a bit busted at the bottom, but it’s no big deal. I was actually in need of some deep conditioner, so it’s as if Lip Monthly read my mind this month.

Total Value of the bag- 41.94+

Overall thoughts- I love that there were two lipsticks in this month’s bag. Sometimes I’ll get lip balms and chapstick, and I don’t personally use those often. I like being able to try out lipsticks and lip liners for less than going to individual sites. I do love Lip Monthly as a whole, and I have personally never had an issue with them. I think that they have grown a lot in terms of products over the past year, though I can tell on social media that their customer service might need a bit more developing.

You all know I try to keep it as honest as possible, and I’m just being honest. Do your research and ask questions, especially if you’re thinking about signing up for anything that could be long term.

However, if you’re wanting to subscribe, I do have a referral link: https://lipmonthly.com//referral/VOTA7OjQCCz1

You can use the code “LipLover” to get your first bag for $5 as well!

As always, thank you for stopping by and reading this post! I hope you’re all having lovely days!

Nyx Lipstick Collection Pt. 2

nyx lipsticks

Okay, so it’s time for part two of this giant installment in my “shop my stash” series. More people voted to see my Nyx lipstick collection, and well, I didn’t expect it to be such a huge collection.

If you’re interested in Part one just click here.

Now, today I will be swatching my current collection of simply nude, red, and vamp jumbo pencils, liquid suedes, and my latest additions to my matte lipstick collection. I did a prior post about my Nyx Matte lipsticks that you can ready here if you fancy.

I’ve used the simply vamp lip creams often on my blog, but they’re ones that I always forget to reach for. I own all of the simply vamp lip creams, a couple of the simply ones, and a couple of the simply red ones. The Simply Vamp line is a must have for me. I truly love these, and the shades are amazing! I feel that the shades from the simply nude and red lines can be found in other lines from Nyx though.

I’m not too fond of the packaging, honestly. I feel these could be nicer, but when it comes to Nyx lipsticks, my main concern is the product, and the product is nice.

IMG_4283

From top to bottom: She Devil, Temptress, Bewitched, Enamored, Aphrodisiac, Covet, Maraschino Cherry, Leading Lady, Sable, Exposed

My personal favorites are Enamored, Covet, and Bewitched. These are must have shades for me. Enamored and Covet have shimmer to them, so if you’re a vampy soul that loves touches of glamour, these will be perfect for you.

Next up is my current liquid suede collection. I did a youtube review of these that can be watched here.

I added Sway to my collection since that video. However, I forgot to swatch Stone Fox for this post. I knew I was forgetting one. That video includes a lip swatch of Stone Fox though. For the most part, I enjoy these. They don’t dry down completely matte, so they’re not transfer proof, but they are comfortable and the shades are gorgeous. The only one I find to be patchy when applied to the lips is Sway. It’s a very pretty neon lavender, but it doesn’t work well on my lips.

nyx liquid suede

From top to bottom: Kitten Heels, Cherry Skies, Vintage, Soft Spoken, Sway, Amethyst

My personal favorites from this line are Vintage, Soft Spoken, and Amethyst. I have a thing for blurples, and Amethyst is a gorgeous blurple color that makes me teeth look white. Vintage is a shade that everyone needs. It flatters everyone!

Last, I have my couple of soft matte lip creams and new Matte lipsticks. I only have two of the matte lip creams because I’m not a huge fan of them. I find them patchy and I rarely wear them. They also dry up quickly, so if you’re someone that collects lipsticks, you may want to pass on these for that reason alone.

However, Copenhagen and Cannes are two that I have kept, and are very pretty shades. As for my matte ones, I recently added four more, two of them being from the 2016 line! That’s right, Nyx is releasing a plethora of new shades to their matte lipstick and soft matte lip cream line.

nyx matte lipsticks

Top to bottom: Ultra Dare (NEW!), Up the Bass (NEW!), Aria, Siren, Copenhagen, Cannes

Up the Bass and Ultra Dare are my favorites, as well as Siren. However, I’m a huge fan of all of the matte lipsticks by Nyx. I will probably end up adding most of the new shades to my collection since I already know I love the formula. Not too sure about the soft lip creams. If anyone tries the new ones…let me know if there’s been a formula change!

Anyway, that’s it for today’s shop my stash post! I didn’t include my glosses and lip liners since they’re technically not lipsticks, but I can add another post with those if anyone would be interested.

I hope you all enjoyed this, and as always, thanks for reading!

Oh, and Happy New Year! I hope 2016 is swell to each and every one of you, and please be safe tonight. If you have too much fun and you’re without a ride, you can download Uber and get a discount on your first ride I believe.

Until next time, beauties.

Shop My Stash: Nyx Lipsticks Pt. 1

Nyx Lipsticks

Oh hey, ready for another Shop My Stash post? I am, I love doing these! I’ve honestly rediscovered a few products doing these posts, so they’ve helped me and several of you all have told me that you’ve enjoyed these posts as well! So, I’m taking on the mother load of all shop my stashes, and posting all of my current Nyx lipsticks.

Well, not all of them at once. Nyx Cosmetics is the one brand that I own the most lipsticks from. They’re the first ones I ever started “collecting” because I would always find them BOGO 50% at Ulta and use coupons on top of that. So, it’ll take me a few posts to get through all of them. I don’t want to overwhelm myself and you all. Today, I’ll be swatching my round case lipsticks, high voltage lipsticks, and my small macaron and wicked lippie collections.

Let’s begin with my round case lipsticks. These are probably the most affordable lipsticks Nyx makes, and the very first ones I ever owned. If you’re new to my blog, I’ve talked about how Chaos was the red that changed my life. I bought it and tried it during a time in my life where I was trying to figure out who I really was (long story short, I allowed others to tell me who to be) and it honestly changed my life. That was the moment I realized I was meant to be bold, and that a shade like that was what I was missing  in my life. I was obsessed, and I’m on my third tube of it. If you want to read my prior post just click here.

 

nyx lipsticks

Swatches from the wrist down: Bruised, Pluto, Penelope, Black Cherry, Hero, Snow White, Chaos, Cocoa, Lala, Thalia, Hades, Power

The round case lipsticks are about $3.99 each, so when these go on sale at Ulta it’s possible to get 3 or 4 for under $10 if you use a coupon! These are not matte, and are pretty glossy for the most part. My biggest tips for these is to use a liner to prevent feathering, and use a lip brush to perfect application. I know that sounds almost like a hassle, but I honestly love the shades from this range. My absolute favorites are Chaos, Lala, and Pluto. Pluto was one that I kind of forgot about, and it’s such a trendy shade right now! Lala looks like a glossier version of Jeffree Star’s Androgyny lipstick, eh? I kinda think so.

Next up, we have the newer high voltage lipsticks. These released this past year, and come in thinner tubes than the round case ones. In my opinion, these are 100% easier to apply. However, there’s less product in these and they’re a couple bucks more expensive than the round case lippies. They are very pigmented though, and I recently used one in a drugstore tutorial. I have a prior review, just click here if you want to read it.

nyx high voltgage lipsticks

 

From the top down: Feline, Burlesque, Hollywood, Flutter Kiss, Stone

Flutter Kiss is the perfect “my lips but better” shade. Stone is also a very gorgeous greige if you’ve been wanting to try one, but don’t want to spend $20 to do so. Personally, my must haves out of these are Stone and Feline. Feline is the perfect vampy deep purple red. However, all of these are nice and I find the smaller packaging nifty since I can kinda squish them all together to save room.

Lastly, I have swatches of my Macaron and Wicked lippies by Nyx. These are all super fun shades. If you want to try fun shades, but don’t know about spending a lot of money on them, definetely look into Nyx! Neither of these lines are matte like many colorful liquid lipsticks, but you can try a shade out and see how you like it on yourself. The macaron shades are some of the first colorful lipsticks I ever bought. And the rest is history. Let’s be real, I now wear green and grey more than almost every other shade.

nyx wicked lipstick

From top to bottom: Betrayal (Wicked), Sinful (Wicked), Pistachio, Violet, Earl Grey

I love these, and if you want to see what they would look like matte, just dust some translucent powder over the top of them! My personal must haves are…all of them. If I didn’t have a plethora of colorful liquid lipsticks, I would own all of these from both lines.

Well, that was all 22 swatches that I have for today. I will try to have part 2 up next week at about the same time! I still have my simply vamp and nude pencils, butter lipsticks, glosses, and liquid suedes to swatch. I also own quite a few lip pencils, so I can add those in if anyone would be interested.

I hope you all enjoyed today’s post! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Some Spook-tacular Shops to Check Out

IMG_2708

The week before Halloween is seriously one of my favorite weeks of the year. Other than the week my kids were born, I live for this week. I love seeing everyone put together costumes and makeup looks. However, I am a bit creepy all year. Many things about Halloween I gracefully add to my wardrobe and life all year. So, while we’re in the spirit, I wanted to share some of my personal favorite shops that sell cute and spooky things all year.

Dead Spider Hands: This shop is where that cute mini zine and monster doily came from. The artist that owns this shop’s name is Allie Burke, and she is so incredibly creative. I have a few of her prints in my house, and I always get compliments on how strikingly creepy, yet classy they look on my bookshelf. Her shop is under maintence right now and won’t be up for a few more weeks, but her prints and stickers are so damn adorable.

Shop Deer Heart: This shop is a newer discovery, and I love it so much already! This shop sells cute and creepy (and non creepy) pins and other nifty things. That’s actually where the eyeball ring pictured above came from.

Worship 13: I know I talk about this shop often, but I truly do love her jewelry and I’ve expereniced nothing but amazing things from her shop. I wear her necklaces very often in my Instagram photos, and these are items she makes all year! I love that I can stay spooky cute all year, and her items are budget friendly.

Bella Morta Jewelry: This is another shop I talk about often and mention in my posts, but I do want to include her shop because she will be closing it down soon for personal reasons. I truly love her pieces and I am sad to see her shop go, so I want to share it with you all in case anyone has been wanting anything from my photos. This could be your last chance to snag a few things.

Fiend Boutique: This is another newer shop to me, and it should be obvious that I’m a sucker for any shop that sells cute horror themed necklaces and earrings. I’m a huge Misfits fan so the name just speaks to me on another level, but their items are incredible as well and very affordable. Go look at the Jack-O-Lantern earrings right now. Trust me on this one.

Pretty Zombie Cosmetics: Okay, would it be a post by me if I didn’t include a few makeup shops? I love Pretty Zombie’s lipsticks, and I have talked about them so often before. Their packaging is so adorable though and it has pretty zombie pin up girls on them. Vanity worthy. Need I say more?

My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics: To clarify, this brand is different from Pretty Zombie. This shop sells eyeshadows, and they are incredible! Remember my Halloween tutorial where I used an eyeshadow called “Murder?” That came from this shop. She sells a lot of really awesome quality shadows for $5 each that have the most badass names.

Notoriously Morbid Cosmetics: This shop is probably the newest to me out of all of these, and I’m already head over heels in makeup love. Sharie from Secondhand Sweetness is always talking about them, so I decided to give their mystic matte lipsticks a try, and I was instantly hooked. Their products are vegan and cruelty free, and many are themed. I missed out on the Vincent Price collection, but I did snag the Down the Spiral (also a huge Nine Inch Nails fan, surprise) collection that I will be doing an unboxing for as soon as it arrives. I have high hopes for this brand!

Salem Couture: This shop sells mostly Peter Pan style collars that can be worn with any shirt you have! I love this concept, and I own a few myself that I have used in previous posts. They sell many designs, some spooky and some plain. The mermaid one is one of my personal favorites, and I also own the floral one. They have an instagram page as well and they have discount codes pretty frequently!

That’s it for today’s short little link fest. I know this is not my usual type of post, but I do use a lot of accessories for my looks and tutorials, and I like to share the love. Indie brands and independent artists are always going to have a place in my heart, and I want so many of them to succeed. There’s a lot of talented artists in this post, so make sure to click the links and shop around in your spare time!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Fall Lipstick Challenge Update 4 with Photos

Hey lovelies,

It’s time for another Fall lipstick challenge update! Actually, this will be my last one! I’m honestly not ready for this month to end, I had a blast trying out different lipsticks and discovering new and old favorites! I do have one more day left after this update goes live, but I will share that on Instagram. So, if you want follow my Instagram (@lunafayebeauty) to see the rest. I will be making a video of my top 10 favorites of the month, which will be the shades that I feel are absolutely needed for a Fall lip product lover this season. So, without further adieu, let’s get on with the photos:

coloured raine soul

Day 23: Coloured Raine Soul & LaSplash Cryptic. I was really feeling a gray ombre lip this day. I ordered Cryptic awhile back, but it is really light and washes me out a bit, but I was really digging this lip look. Soul is a really pretty dark gray shade, and I positively love the Coloured Raine formula. It’s a bit thicker in texture so it’s easier to work with, and they are very long lasting!

nyx soft spoken

Day 24: Colourpop Tulle & Nyx Soft Spoken. I know, another ombre lip. I really wanted to wear both of these during this month and realized that September is coming to a close! I do love how this turned out though. Soft Spoken is a really gorgeous dusty rose shade for Fall, or any time, really.

pretty zombie cosmetics black cat

Day 25: Pretty Zombie Cosmetics “Black Cat.” I could not end a month of Fall lipsticks without pulling out a shade of black. Pretty Zombie Cosmetics makes some of the most pigmented liquid lipsticks, and this black does not disappoint. I have not ordered any other black liquid lipsticks simply because this one is so incredible. As I mentioned before, it’s not long lasting, but this black liquid lipstick doesn’t feather on me at all which is something black lipsticks in general can do. I will sacrifice long wear for no feathering. As much as I love Marilyn Manson, the smeared black lipstick look just doesn’t look cute on me.

nyx betwitching

Day 26: Nyx Simply Vamp lip cream in “Bewitching.” I’m sorry for the bad photo quality, I was super busy this day. However, I love the Nyx simply vamp lip crayons. Bewitching is a really pretty purply red color. These aren’t long lasting and I’m not in love with the packaging, but the product makes up for it.

milani matte love

Day 27: Milani “Matte Love.” We all know I have a love for the Milani Matte lipsticks, and this shade is no different. I love this shade of cranberry. It’s pretty enough to wear with a neutral eye and still make a statement. I could go on and on about this formula, but I believe I have already done that in another post.

la girl poetic

Day 28: LA Girl “Poetic.” I’m so sorry for the awful quality photo, this day was unexpectedly hectic for me, and by the time I was able to sit down I was a sweaty and hot mess…literally. However, I will be doing a full review of these lipsticks soon. Poetic is a GORGEOUS blue toned gray shade, and has been compared to Melt’s Space Cake! It’s a really close dupe, which is why I settled for this one instead of getting Melt’s. If you want to see what I’m talking about, go to dupethat.com! They post the best dupes 😀

jeffree star cosmetics unicorn

Day 29: Jeffree Star Cosmetics “Unicorn Blood.” Did you all really expect me to wear everything but my Jeffree Star Velour Liquid lipsticks this month? I know I talk about this shade sooo often, but it’s one of my absolute favorites. It’s not patchy, feels comfortable, and withstood me drinking coffee all day since I was so turned up (is that how that saying goes?) for National Coffee Day. Excuse my awkward hand. I have no idea what I was gonna slap in this photo.

That’s it for this update! I honestly had a blast with this Fall lipstick challenge. I will probably continue to do fun lipstick swatches and looks on Instagram, which wasn’t something I normally did, but you all responded so well to it and that makes me so happy! Well, anything lipstick related makes me happy.

I hope you all enjoyed these posts, and let me know what your favorite(s) were! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days.

Fall Lipstick Challenge Week 3 Update & Photos

Hey lovelies,

We’re 3 weeks into my personal Fall lipstick challenge! Yay! I have honestly had so much fun doing lip swatches everyday and trying out new lipsticks and digging out old favorites. I kind of don’t want this to end. Thirty days has not seemed like enough, I have way too much lipstick. Anyway, on to what was on my lips last week..

jordana matte frappucino

Day 16: Nyx’s liner in “Espresso” topped with Jordana’s matte lipstick in “Matte Frappucino.” I really like how this combo turned out. I think this is a wearable brown lipstick without being too dark, and even if you bought both products it’s going to be very affordable. The Jordana matte lipsticks are actually quite nice, and they wear very comfortably. My only beef is the packaging is super cheap and the names all rub off quickly, which is a pet peeve of mine, especially as a blogger.

makeup monsters hit the dirt

Day 17: Makeup Monsters “Hit the Dirt” I ordered two shades when these were restocked a few weeks back, and I am just now getting a chance to try them out. Makeup Monsters actually reformulated their liquid lipsticks and they are not long lasting! This shade lasted through 2 cups of coffee and lunch without budging, so it’s pretty awesome! I plan on doing an updated video regarding their brand soon with lip swatches of every one that I own.

makeup monsters blackened heart

Day 18: Colourpop’s “Pitch” topped with Makeup Monsters “Blackened Heart.” I actually filmed a video wearing the look in this picture, but I am in love with this lip combo. I love finding things in my collection and revamping them by combining them, and this day I took out two lippies that needed some love and created a beautiful Fall color.

colourpop guess

Day 19: Colourpop’s “Guess” topped with La Girl’s lip glaze in “Tempt.” I woke up the morning I took this feeling like death. I have asthma, so any cold I get goes straight to my respiratory system. However, I’m quite used to it so I mustered up the will powder to put on enough makeup to look presentable and go grocery shopping. I wanted something a bit glossier since my nose was stuffy, so I put this LA Girl glaze over a liquid lipstick. They paired wonderfully, and even more importantly, the glaze didn’t get on my teeth!

pretty zombie cosmetics dahlia

Day 20: Pretty Zombie Cosmetics “Dahlia.” I can’t go a month without wearing one of my all time favorite liquid lipsticks. Dahlia is the perfect shade for Fall. These liquid lipsticks aren’t long lasting, but they do last quite a while and feel super comfortable on the lips. I was actually in love with how this entire look turned out this day, but I did not think to film it. Go figure.

wet n wild photobomb

Day 21: Wet n Wild’s “Photobomb.” If you follow me on Snapchat, you probably saw me with a red lip. Well, I changed it. I wanted to wear this one since it’s new and pretty and oozes Fall vibes. I love the megalast lipsticks, and this shade is really lovely. But hurry, it’s limited edition so it won’t be around forever! Scarf is from Kohl’s and it’s new 🙂

colourpop LBB

Day 22: Colourpop’s “LBB.” I really wanted to wear a more wine-ish berry shade of lipstick, and this is one of my favorites. I love the Colourpop matte formula, they apply so easily and stay put for a bit despite being a bit more hydrating. I think this shade flatters many skin tones, and I haven’t seen it look bad on anyone yet! Necklace is from Bella Morta Jewelry.

That’s it for today’s update post! What were some of your favorites from last week? I really love Hit the Dirt and the Pitch and Blackened Heart combo, personally. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

I hope you’re all having wonderful days, and I will be back tomorrow for this week’s ‘Face of the Day” post!

Fall Lipstick Challenge Week 2 (with photos)

Hey beauties,

It’s week 2 of my personal Fall lipstick challenge! I’ve been trying my hardest to wear shades that are new and old, and some favorites mixed in. I even discovered a few new favorites! Let me know what your favorite shades were this week!

lolita dupe

Day 9: Okay, I kinda flubbed on this day. TMI, I started my cycle this day and makeup just wasn’t happening. All I wanted was a burrito and some cuddles, but all I got was coffee (which is also cool) and cramps (not cool). I did do a dupe swatch though. On the right is Nyx’s new “Soft Spoken” and to the left is Kat Von D’s “Lolita.” I know I have tried to dupe this before with no prevail, especially since mine is a bit more brown. However, Soft Spoken is pretty close, even though the finish is a bit different and the Liquid Suede lipsticks aren’t long lasting like the Kat Von D ones. Still a great shade to look into if you want an affordable dusty rose shade.

colourpop grunge

Day 10: ColourPop “Grunge” I had to put this shade on as soon as I got it in the mail. This shade screams 90’s. It’s a beautiful brown toned marsala shade, and Colourpop really nailed this shade. It’s gorgeous, and looks great on a lot of skin tones. You can read about my latest haul and see swatches here if interested.

kathleen lights miami fever

Day 11: Ofra Cosmetics “Miami Fever.” This is another new shade, and it’s the collaboration shade with Kathleen Lights. Kathleen is one of my favorite youtubers, and I really wanted to get this and use her 40% off code to support her, even though this shade scared the hell out of me. It’s not for everyone, that’s for sure. It’s still really pretty though, and I felt it paired well with a burnt orange smokey eye. This shade will look stunning on those with darker skin tones, but if you’re pale, you might not like this unless you like making bold statements with your lips. I never thought I would like orange before, but this shade is growing on me.

milani matte beauty

Day 12: Milani “Matte Beauty” this is a shade that I haven’t given any love in a bit, and I forgot how lovely of a nude this is. I paired it with some killer lashes and a glammed out shadow look and I felt like it added to the look without taking too much away, if that makes any sense. I love the Moisture Matte formula, but that isn’t a new statement coming from me. These are awesome drugstore matte lipsticks.

colourpop trap

Day 13: Colourpop ultra matte lipstick “trap” lined with Essence’s liner in “satin mauve.” Sorry that this is another phone quality photo, but I feel like I was still able to capture the beauty of this combination. Trap is such a gorgeous liquid lipstick. This combo lasted through chicken strips and biscuits, so this formula is a keeper in my books. When you’re Southern, a lipstick that can withstand the power of a biscuit is a big deal.

colourpop blood

Day 14: Colourpop ‘Blood.” This is the first time I’ve really gotten to wear this shade, and it’s absolutely stunning. This is a matte shade, and wearing a lipstick named “Blood’ just makes me feel like a badass. It’s a super pretty deep shade of red, and for $5 I do recommend adding this one to your cart next time you order from Colourpop if you love reds as much as I do.

nyx matte alabama

Day 15: Nyx Matte Lipstick in “Alabama.” Another red? Yes, judge me. I wear red very often. However, I have only swatched this one on my hand and not actually tried it on. I got it the last time Ulta had 40% off all Nyx products, and I really love their matte lipsticks. They’re much like the Milani ones. Pigmented, easy to apply, and not too drying. This dark red shade is to die for. Definitely discovered a new favorite red this week.

That is it for this week! Stay tuned for another update next Wednesday! I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Fall Lipstick Challenge Update + Overview

Hey lovelies,

urban decay shame

Day 1: Urban Decay “Shame” lined with Colourpop’s “Creature” lippie pencil. I really loved this combo, and it was the lip look I was wearing in last week’s “Face of the Day” post. It’s such a gorgeous deep berry shade, and the finish of the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks are semi matte, moisturizing, and actually do stay put for quite some time, especially when paired with a liner. I actually scored this lipstick off Glambot during a clearance sale, and it’s definitely made me think that I may need some more of these in my life sometime soon. I’ve been eyeballing the new matte ones lately…especially 1993.

colourpop creeper

Day 2: Milani Liner in “True Red” and Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipstick in “Creeper.” There’s nothing I love more than a bright, true red. This combination makes my heart flutter. I made a post on instagram stating that if you own the ultra matte lipsticks and you don’t enjoy the feeling, try them with a liner to create a barrier between your lips and the liquid lipstick. Milani’s true red is the perfect shade match for Creeper.

nyx liquid suede lipstick

Day 3: Nyx Liquid Suede Lippie in “Amethyst.” Oh, this shade. It’s the blurple of my dreams. These lipsticks are all incredible so far. They set well on my lips and aren’t too drying. They’re pigmented, and though they don’t last long, I still love them. I’m going to be doing a full video review with lip swatches of these, but this one was too gorgeous to not slather on my lips.

notoriously morbi lilith

Day 4: Notoriously Morbid Cosmetics “Lilith.” This is my first purchase from this indie brand, and I did so because Sharie from SecondhandSweetness swatched it and raved about this brand, and I was hooked when I saw this color. It’s so damn pretty. It’s the dark burgundy of my dreams. It’s the perfect mix of red and brown. These are vegan and cruelty free FYI, and they are only $9 a piece, and from what I could tell, pretty long lasting. Definitely worth looking into.

kat von d lolita

Day 5: Kat Von D “Lolita.” This is a cult favorite liquid lipstick, and my first ever liquid lipstick. It’s what started my obsession with liquid to matte formulas, so it has a bit of a sentimental value to me. I’m also pretty sure mine is part of the “bad” batch since it’s more brown than dusty rose, but I love this shade and haven’t bothered to purchase the newer batch because of it. If I’m not mistaken, Kat Von D will be releasing a shade that looks similar to this one since it was so popular.

city color cosmetics hibiscus martini

Day 6: City Color Cosmetics “Hibiscus Martini.” I ordered 3 of the new creamy lip stain shades the day they came out. I almost didn’t order this one, but then I saw the lady’s from TheLipSwatch on Instagram swatch it, and I decided I needed it. Okay, I needed it like I need another hole in my face, but look at this shade. It screams Fall to me. It’s a burnt red color that doesn’t look too orange. Though I don’t mind burnt orange colors since I just ordered one of the Ofra Cosmetics and KathleenLights collab lipsticks…oops.

nyx vintage

Day 7: Nyx Liquid Suede “Vintage.” I know, I wore two shades from this line in one week. In my defense, I’m still testing these out so I can put a video review with lip swatches together before these are released in Ulta stores on 9/24. This shade is a gorgeous deep plummy-red shade. I’ll speak more about this formula and such in my full review though.

city color cosmetics triple berry spritzer

Day 8: City Color Cosmetics “Triple Berry Spritzer.” I did this one because someone requested a swatch of it. It’s so freakin’ gorgeous though. I feel this would be a really pretty and flirty darker nude for Fall. Not everyone is into the darker colors, and I understand that. I want to throw a variety of shades into the mix this month. This is another one of the new shades from the Creamy Lips line. These glide on like butter. Definitely a formula you could keep in your purse to throw on while in a hurry.

During the first week of the challenge I realized I could keep this going for several months if I wanted to. I told you all I am obsessed with lipstick. We’re all allowed to have our guilty pleasures, right? Mine is lipstick, coffee, and diet coke. I think it could be worse.

Anyway, that’s it for this week! I hope you’re all enjoying these posts and the swatches on Instagram.
