Kylie LipKit & Kylighter Review

Hey Beauties!

I hope you are all well! I have a confession to make. As someone who LOVES makeup I was on the fence about buying into the hype of @KylieCosmetics products but then, I finally caved. 

Now, this review is strictly for her infamous #Lipkit and new Kylighters. I was very curious to see if both products were both worth the hype and money. They weren’t too expensive and her site has free domestic shipping for orders over $40 so that’s a plus for me.

LipKit in “Head Over Heels”

First all, I know what colors look good on me so this purchase was really to see how long the matte and lipliner would last for. I will defintely say that with eating, drinking, talking ( salesperson over here) it lasted all day. I was pleasantly surprised at the formula that it wasn’t over drying and dried rather quickly. The lipliner was an extra added bonus which gave me extra defintion in the lip department.

The only downside to this product is that it took a week to get to me. I guess I’m spoiled and used to things arriving more quickly, but that’s my only gripe. I will defintely buy more colors πŸ™‚

Kylighter in “Chocolate Cherry”

Confession number #2, I am obsessed with highlighters. It doesn’t matter the brand if I can get a great glow I. Am. sold!! When I saw the news that Kylie was coming out with a highlighter I was intrigued because she is known for her lippies and felt that she should stay in her lane but I was wrong. I give Kylie credit because she does look out for us brown girls when it comes to her products since her friends are very diverse. My first thought when applying was, ummmm where is it? I used a fan brush and had a BB cream on prior and felt I needed to use a lot of product for it to show on my skin. I didn’t use a bronzer with it so next time I will to see if it comes out brighter. I noticed that in the light it looks the most beautiful and noticeable. I wanted honestly French Vanilla but it was sold out 😩. That will be my next purchase. My overall grade would be at B but to be fair I will wear it with a bronzer next time to get the full effect. Check out my picture below πŸ‘‡πŸΎ

LimeCrime True Love Set Review πŸ‘„

Hi beauties!

I hope your 2017 is off to a great start!  I’m enjoying some of the gifts I received for Christmas and one of them is LimeCrime’s Velvetines True Love set. Now, I have purchased many Velvetines separately but never in a set. I’ll review each color first.

from left to right(saint, true love, cupid)
1. Saint: This color is pictured to the far left and is by far my favorite. It’s a dusty wine color once it dries and it dries so pretty! Below is a pic of me wearing it. πŸ‘‡πŸΎ

2. True Love: This color is pictured in the middle and my second favorite. It’s a bright coral and perfect for all shades. It dries a little more muted than what I expected but it’s still a pretty summery color. Pic below wearing πŸ‘‡πŸΎ

3. Cupid: This is the last one pictured to the right and my least favorite. It dries so ugly and looked horrible on me. No picture here because it was blah πŸ™…πŸΎ.  I think this color would look really great on fair or olive colored skin but I just don’t like it on myself. 

Below are the colors swatched so you can see how they all look. I bought these on Hautelook and I may not buy lipstick again since I was 2 for 3 but only in shades I know look good on me as I took a gamble on the last color.

Let know you thoughts!

Lipgloss vs. Liquid Matte Review

Hi beauties!

Happy Tuesday! After last weeks’ BeautyCon I bought and received so many different lipsticks that consisted of glosses and mattes! I’ve been wearing a mixture of the two and below I’ll be reviewing each line and it’s color, consistency, staying power and if it’s worth the buy. 

All of the colors swatched on my hand

All reviews will be in numerical order according to the picture aboveπŸ‘†πŸΎπŸ‘†πŸΎπŸ‘†πŸΎπŸ‘†πŸΎ

  1. ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip: I loved this gloss as it came inside my BeautyCon swag bag and was impressed with its glossiness and shine. The color is Sookie so I instantly thought of TruBlood. The only downside is that it doesn’t last thru meals which some of the other glosses did.
  2. LimeCrime Velvetine in Teddy Bear: This is my new grayish/lilac toned color! First of all, when I mixed my mattes together I would get this color so it was great to finally find this color that wasn’t too grey. Velvetines are really popular now and for good reason because the pigmigminted colors are gorgeous. This color stayed on for awhile too, even after eating.
  3. LimeCrime Velvetine in Wicked: OMG! This is my favorite brick red color. It goes on so smooth and is such a gorge color. It dries a little deeper and goes on really rich so you shouldn’t feel intimidated. The downside is that after awhile, small little crack may come on to your lip but it’s not a biggie
  4. LimeCrime Velvetine in Saddle: If you are looking for a nice, rich brown color that a beautiful earth tone, Saddle is the color for you. It reminds me of Kylie Cosmetics first line of lipkits which had lots of browns. It goes on really smooth and dries lighter.
  5. NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss in Black Cherry Tart: When I first swatched this color I thought it was just a little deeper that the ColourPop Sookie but it’s very rich and I LOVE the applicator brush that allows precision when applying the gloss.
  6. NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss in Spice Cake: I gave this to someone because I knew they would really like the color so I didn’t wear this one but the color is a pinkish wine color which is think and very glossy!
  7. NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss in Berry Strudel: I was pleasantly surprised my this color and got a lot of compliments when I wore it and it’s the one outside of my comfort zone. You have to apply two coats but it may come out too thick depending on your comfort level and lips. High pigmented color with sooo much gloss!

I hope you all find my reviews helpful and below is a picture of me wearing Black Cherry Tart!

Mattetificent Lip Colors for Summer!

Dark shades in the summer are a great contrast against a bright color or a floral print. If you are really feeling bold, pair a dark bold lip against an all white dress or outfit for a dramatic statement.
Below are my favorite wine colored/dark matte lip colors that I wear everyday, while others I reserve for a night out or when I’m going for a dramatic look. They vary between liquid mattes, crayons, and pencils. At the bottom, there is a swatch with all the colors so you can see how they look.
