New Lippies Review!

IMG_1043.JPG

Hi all!¬† Happy 4th of July! I hope your day is going well.¬† It’s storming in Kansas City today, but hopefully it will stop before evening, for fireworks!

I have recently received some new lippies from Em Cosmetics, PUR cosmetics and MGS Accessories for my honest review.¬† The packaging on all of these are gorgeous, so I thought I would review them together — so much fun!

IMG_1044

From top to bottom:

Em Cosmetics¬†Infinite Lip Cloud ($20) —¬†A velvety, air-whipped cr√®me that glides on, and saturates lips in rich color. This non-drying liquid lipstick was created by blending the lip-cocooning, line-filling properties of a lip primer with the color saturation of lipstick. The shades from top are Faded Clementine and French Nude

Pur Cosmetics Out of the Blue Light Up High Shine Lip Gloss¬†($18 USD) —¬†Pucker up to kissable lips with highly pigmented, Light Up High Shine Lip Gloss with blue light defense‚Ķ wear alone or layered over lipstick to add a touch of mesmerizing shine. The shades are in the middle and are Focused and Goals

MGS Beauty Matte Liquid Lipsticks ($20 USD) — These are long lasting and are nourishing with Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil.¬† Each of MGS Accessories products are vegan and cruelty-free.¬†¬†The shades are on the bottom and are Natural and Peachy

IMG_1046.JPG

From left to right — Em Cosmetics in Faded Clementine and French Nude. PUR in Focused and Goals and MGS in Natural and Peachy.

The Em Cosmetics Infinite Cloud lipsticks are a very nice formula.  They are very light on the lips, when I apply them it almost feels like nothing is on.  They dry down all of the way.  They are a little drying on, but they are not uncomfortable.  They are very long lasting and gorgeous on!

The MGS Accessories Matte Liquid Lipsticks is a thicker formula than the Em Cosmetics.¬† It takes a little longer to dry down, but when it does it’s a very nice formula.¬† It’s a little drying but it lasts all day!¬† I love wearing glosses over all liquid lipstick, because as an aging woman, you can really see my lip lines with them.¬† I’m happy to say both of these formulas work really well with lip gloss over them.

Speaking of glosses, the PUR Cosmetics glosses are so nice!¬† They aren’t sticky and feel very hydrating on.¬† The two I received have a bit of sparkle to them.¬† There are two others that don’t have glitter, if you like that better.¬† There is a button on the lid of these that lights up the wand for easy application and there’s a mirror on the side of them.¬† Very fun!

I’m enjoying all of these products and will continue to use them!

My Current Favorite Urban Decay Lippies!

Hi all!¬† I hope you are having gorgeous spring weather like I am.¬† I think it’s going to be in the 70’s today in Kansas City.¬† Although my allergies are bad and I don’t spend much time outside, I do enjoy the nice weather!

I’ve received some wonderful Urban Decay products for my honest review lately, including some gorgeous lip products. I wanted to share my favorites!

IMG_0610

Such gorgeous packaging!¬† I love Urban Decays innovative packaging.¬† Here’s a shot of the lippies open:

IMG_0609 HI-FI SHINE ULTRA CUSHION LIP GLOSS¬†–($20 each) The top shade is Fuel (light neutral nude cream) and the bottom is Rapture (rose-mauve cream)

LO-FI LIP MOUSSE–($22 USD) The shade is Halo (warm baby pink)

VICE LIPSTICK–($19 USD) On the left is Lovelight (pale peach w/pink shimmer – sheer shimmer) and Oblivion (gray-taupe mega matte)

As you can see, I like lighter shades.  These are all very different, though.  Close up photos below, followed by swatches.

img_0616.jpg The top and left is Fuel and bottom right is Rapture.  These are both beautiful and semi-sheer.  These are gorgeous on their own or over lipstick.  They are shiny, but not sticky at all!  Which I love!

IMG_0614¬†This is a bit messy, but I have been testing it out.¬† This is more of a putty formula than a mousse.¬† This does take a little bit of work to get good coverage, but a lip liner and using the little applicator sponge helps.¬† It is very matte on.¬† I’m not the biggest matte fan, but this looks pretty.¬† It also is nice with one of the glosses layered on.

IMG_0612 The left is the Ultra Matte in Oblivion and the right is the Sheer Shimmer in Lovelight.

Oblivion is very matte, but it’s comfortable on.¬† Even a bit moisturizing.¬† Plus, it looks amazing with the Rapture gloss over it!¬† Lovelight is gorgeous all by itself!¬† Very sheer and shimmery.¬† Perfect for spring and summer.

IMG_0617¬†Here are the swatches — Fuel, Rapture, Oblivion, Lovelight and Halo.¬† Such different formulas — but all really fun!¬† I’ll probably be picking up more glosses, lipsticks and if they put out lighter shades in the Lo-Fi, I will be trying those, too!

You can purchase Urban Decay online at http://www.urbandecay.com and at Ulta and Sephora.

New Makeup For Fall!

Hi all! Fall is just around the corner and I’m starting to do my fall makeup reviews.¬† I’m so excited because this is one of my favorite times of year!

Below are new fall products that I have been sent for my honest review:

jane iredale's NEW Triple Luxe Long Lasting Naturally Moist Lipsticks
jane iredale Triple Luxe Long Lasting Naturally Moist Lipsticks

Just launched is jane iredale’s¬†NEW¬†Triple Luxe Long Lasting Naturally Moist Lipsticks ($35 each). there¬†are 15 fresh “power colors” in a breakthrough luxury, clean formula.¬†From electric pink (Natalie) to fine wine (Ella) to bold red (Gwen) to made-for-you nudes (Gabby, Molly, Sharon, Tricia), each lip-loving shade uses antioxidant-rich Moringa Oil to soothe and nourish, plus Tahitian Vanilla and Blackberry for subtly sweet, natural flavor.

I love how these feel on. They are hydrating but feel really light on.  I do have to layer them to get an opaque look. I have these in Jackie (peachy pink), Rose (light merlot) and Ella (deep rose brown).  I love nude and lighter colors and Jackie is so pretty on!  I will wear the other two in the fall when I deepen my lip color.

Morgan Taylor Fall Safari Swatches

Morgan Taylor Lacquer has just launched their African Safari collection for Fall 2018. Inspired by the sweeping landscape of a safari, the Fall collection embodies the rich earth tones of this destination. Brilliant pearls of sapphire, pewter, and garnet compliment saturated crèmes giving the entire collection the uninhibited feeling that anything can happen under the starry skies of the Serengeti. Here are the shades:

IMG_1781

I just received these these gorgeous Hard Candy eye shadow palettes and have been testing them out.  The shadows are nice, but they do take some building up to get pigment. When I do build them up, they look so pretty all day! And there is little kick up in the pan or fall out on the eyes!

The Neutral Eyes are new for fall, so I don’t know if it is available for sale now, but the¬†Hard Candy Pro Palette Glitter¬†($10 USD) and the¬†Hard Candy Pro Palette in Mauve($8 USD) are available at Walmart.com.

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Matte Metallics and Powder Matte Lipsticks

I recently received some gorgeous Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipsticks to for my honest review.  I love Maybelline New York.  The products are really nice quality and affordably priced.

I want to focus my review on two of their lipsticks lines — the¬†Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick and the¬†Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick:

IMG_0812IMG_0811IMG_0813

So pretty!¬† Doesn’t this make you want to play with lipstick? This is almost the full shade range of the Metallic Mattes¬†($7.49 USD).¬† I am only missing the shade Silk Stone.¬† The shades I have are from left to right — White Gold, Pure Gold, Copper Spark, Hot Lava, Copper Rose, Molten Bronze, Smoked Silver, Gunmetal and Serpentine.

Here are the swatches:

 

IMG_0818

This give a very matte finish with a subtle metallic gleam. It feels comfortable on even though it is matte. It does have honey in it for hydration.

I really love most of these shades and can see myself wearing the first three. They will be especially gorgeous in the summer time  The others are a bit bold for me, but maybe for nights out.  But if you want a bold metallic matte, try one of the more fun colors like Copper Rose or Serpentine.

IMG_0791IMG_0788IMG_0789

These are the shades available in the Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick ($7.49 USD).  These colors are cool, concrete colored shades: Cruel Ruby, Nocturnal Rose, Carnal Brown, Concrete Jungle and Smoky Jade.

Swatch time:

IMG_0790

You can tell that this is an extreme matte finish. It goes on matte and stays matte for hours.   Cruel Ruby looked the best on me, which is strange because I usually only wear nudes and pinks.  This is a gorgeous shade, though.  Really rich.  I think I can pull it off because it is a matte.

I think both of these collections are really different and fun. I think that if you like unusual shades along with pretty reds and pinks, you will enjoy these lipsticks!

What’s your go to lipstick brand and shade?

New Lippies from essence makeup!

img_0418.jpg

I’m a fan of essence makeup!¬† Their products are affordable and generally pretty amazing!¬† They has recently released some fun new lip products. I was sent a few to test for my honest review.

IMG_0419

IMG_0421

essence ultra last instant colour lipstick ($4.99): This is a long-lasting lipstick with a¬† creamy texture.¬† It does last for a while, and leaves a stained lip after eating or drinking.¬† I like that it doesn’t dry out my lips. Available in 20 shades.

Here are swatches of the lipsticks:

IMG_0424

From left to right: 16 Fancy Blush, 5 Un-Grey-Tful and 17 Bur-Berry.  Fancy Blush is my favorite and one I can see myself wearing a lot.  I usually wear lighter colors, but this will be nice for goring out.

img_0426.jpg

essence butter sticks ($3.99): These are very pigmented and hydrating, even the matte ones!  The modern retractable stick is super convenient and easy to apply. Available in 5 glossy love & 5 matte love shades.

IMG_0427

The first two are matte and the third is glossy. It’s hard to tell from my swatch, but the glossy one is shinier.¬† The shades are matte 2 Hot Cocoa, matte 5 Betty Gold and glossy 4 Dark Syrup.¬† Dark Syrup is really the only wearable color for me, but I would wear the matte one in a different shade. These are all really hydrating and easy to apply.¬† I find they cover well, too!¬† Probably my favorite of all three products!

IMG_0428

essence vibrant/metal shock lip paint ($4.49): Bright and metallic lips are so popular right now! These claim that one swipe gives an instant high color impact with a semi-matte finish.  Available in 6 vibrant and 6 metallic shocking shades.

img_0430.jpg

Left to right are vibrant in 3 Red Viper, metallic in 5 Arsenic and 3 Lilly of the Valley.

These are probably my least favorite of the products.¬† They are sheer and need a few coats to build up.¬† I’m also not the biggest fan of drying liquid lipsticks.

Have you tried any of the essence lippies?  Which ones are your faves?

My Beauty Favorites ‚ÄĒ Week of August 21–27, 2017

It’s cooled down a bit in Kansas City, which is awesome. I’ve haven’t been feeling the best this week, but I’ve still been testing out some wonderful products!

This week I am loving a serum that mattifies my face, some new potent anti-aging products and a fun matte liquid lipstick:

Tu’el ABSORB Mattifying Serum
Tu’el ABSORB Mattifying Serum ($48 USD) — Get real deal oil control and a shine-free face with Absorb. Powered by natural plant extracts of burnet, cinnamon, ginger and green tea to control oil, inhibit breakouts and leave your skin looking fresh and matte all day while Sodium Hyaluronate locks in hydration. Give yourself glow without the shine.

What I think: it’s not as hot here as it’s been. But it still is very humid. So my face gets oily fast. I apply this on clean skin and put my moisturizer over it. It helps keep my skin matte all day. It’s sinks right into my skin and I really love that it doesn’t leave it slick like a lot of serums do.

Purchase at Tuelskincare.com

Meaningful Beauty Environmental Protecting Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen – ($65 USD) — Today, the blue light emitted by our phones, TVs and computer screens, and pollution are all sources of environmentally induced skin damage that can be just as harmful as the sun’s rays.This new multi-tasking moisturizer helps reduce damage and premature aging with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

Meaningful Beauty Overnight Retinol Repairing Cr√©me – ($68 USD) — Renew and repair skin while you sleep with this intensely hydrating overnight moisturizer that features retinol, and hexapeptide-9 to help decrease the appearance of fine lines and improve the firmness of skin.

What I think: these are both new to the line. I love the SPF moisturizer because it helps with environmental pollutants. I love having my skin protected when I go outside. It feels nice and light on the skin, too.

I think retinol is so important for aging skin. The night cream sinks right into the skin, and in the morning my skin is smooth and glowing. I like to use intense anti-aging products at night, so my skin can be repaired while I sleep. This is a great option!

Purchase at select ULTA stores/Ulta.com

Wet’n Wild Lipsticks Matte Liquid Catsuit
Wet’n Wild Lipsticks Matte Liquid Catsuit ($4.99 USD) — What glides on like butter, feels like a second skin and won’t budge? Our Catsuit Matte Lipstick. Made with glammed out superpowers, it goes on glossy yet transforms into a high-pigmented matte finish with some serious staying power. Read our lips: This color is going nowhere.

What I think: this was kind of an impulse buy. I have seen reviews online and when I visited Walgreens I went looking for it. I chose the color RebelRose. I like the color, but it’s a little dark for me. The formula goes on smoothly, but it is a bit drying on my lips. I have a lip primer that I’m going to use under it. I recommend this for those who love matte liquid lipsticks. It’s affordable and it comes in a really pretty array of colors. And I really like the packaging too!

Purchase at Walgreens and other mass market retailers.

It’s Time For Gorgeous Fall Makeup!

Tomorrow is the first day of September!¬† Yay!¬† I love Fall and am so excited for the beautiful new makeup — I always love to change at least some of my makeup up with the seasons!

I am going to be doing another Fall makeup post in a couple of days (and more to come I hope) to get the word out on my favorite new fall products.

I would love it if you left a comment telling me what you are loving or are looking forward to this Fall.  It could be beauty related or otherwise.

jane iredale Ready to Wear Fall 2015 Collection
jane iredale Ready to Wear Fall 2015 Collection

jane iredale’s 2015 Fall Collection  Ready to Wear! It’s a new, playful collection for the skin, eyes and lips filled with rich color to complement any wardrobe and mood for the upcoming season.

The collection includes:

  • PlayOn Lip Crayon: The brand new lip crayons are available in seven irresistible, long wearing shades, from classic reds to bright bubble gum pink, and include moisturizing oils keeping lips soft and conditioned for the perfect pout.
  • Smooth Affair for Oil Skin Facial Primer & Brightener: All the benefits of the award-winning Smooth Affair now formulated specifically for oily skin. Noticeably reduces appearance of pores, shine and fights blemishes and clogged pores for a smooth, matte skin tone.
  • PurePressed Eye Shadow Singles: Mineral based pressed shadows designed to enhance the color and shape of the eye, with four new bold, yet wearable shades from pinks to violet to deep and soft greens.
  • PureLash Lengthening Mascara: Now with a new dual sided brush to create longer, fuller looking lashes. The proprietary formula of seaweed lipids and wheat protein thicken, curl, strengthen and condition lashes for eyes that pop.

What I think: I have been testing the new eye shadows and mascara.  The eye shadows give gorgeous pops of color for your Fall look.  I love the matte Iris (purple) and Forest (deep green). So pretty as liners, in the crease or as a fun smoky eye all over the lid.  The mascara gives tons of volume and length, but it smears a bit.  I use it first, then place a coat of a waterproof mascara over it.  That works very well.

Available at http://www.janeiredale.com

Mehron E.Y.E Shadow Powder Palette
Mehron E.Y.E Shadow Powder Palette

Mehron E.Y.E Powder Palette ($43.95 USD) — eye shadows never cake or crease. Creamy powder blends easily and evenly to create dynamic eyes for stage and screen. Convenient 8-color palette includes White, Natural Wheat, Cocoa, Toffee, Fawn, Cinnamon, Espresso and Black.

What I think:  These shadows give a neutral eye that is not boring at all!  They are matte shadows that have a creamy texture and lots of pigment.  You can do a natural day eye with Natural Wheat and Fawn, then smoke it up in the evening with Cocoa and Espresso.  Gorgeous!

 Alien: a dark, matte formula in a cool, gunmetal shade

Glamourose: a deep merlot spiked with hints of glitter

Stiletto: a light silver with a bright metallic sheen 

What I think:  I have tested Glamourose and Stiletto and they are both so fun!  Glamourose is a deep color sure to infuse drama into your look.  Stiletto is fun for going out and I think it will be amazing for Halloween.  Very cool!
