Urban Decay Violate Vice Lipstick Review

Urban Decay Violate Vice Lipstick

When I first started wearing makeup, I used to live for bold colors as an everyday lip. As I get older, I find myself gravitating more towards nudes to slip on and go for quick runs and work days. But rocking nudes too much gets boring and repetitive after a while. Some days, I’m dying to rock a little color without feeling the need to pair a full face with it to balance things out. That’s why I appreciate Urban Decay creating the Violate Vice Lipstick. It’s a great everyday lip that doesn’t require much effort to make it work but it still adds just a touch of color to keep me from looking too nude and boring.

Lipstick is My Vice!

Urban Decay Twitch, Heroine, Conspiracy, Violate Vice Lipstick

I just love me some lipstick! A good lipstick can completely lift your mood and transform your look in an instant. A girl can never have too many lipsticks which is probably why Urban Decay decided to unleash 100 shades of their new Vice Lipsticks to help us perk up our pouts in every color imaginable. I’m a huge fan of Urban Decay lipsticks because they’re smooth, creamy, pigmented and long lasting so I just had to add a few more to my collection to round things out. What can I say? Lipstick is my vice!

MAC Vamplify Gloss is Back!

MAC Vamplify Gloss is Back!

Last year, MAC released the Vamplify Collection featuring the most amazing line of lip glosses I’ve ever tried. I hated that they were limited edition because I really loved the formula and the colors that MAC whipped up were really something nice. Lucky for us, MAC doubled back on Vamplify collection and re-released it this summer including those beautiful Vamplify glosses that I just couldn’t stop wearing. Yaaaaas! Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who thought the Vamplify glosses were due for a comeback because MAC brought back a handful of last year’s shades plus some new ones to fall in love with. I couldn’t be happier!

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip On The Way!

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lips for Summer 2016

It was only a matter of time before ColourPop popped up with a lip gloss line. After hitting the market with Lippie Stix, Lippie Pencils, Ultra Matte Lips and Ultra Satin Lips it was a must that ColourPop introduced a line of Ultra Glossy Lips. The new Ultra Glossy Lip line will include 21 shades ranging from nudes and reds to pinks and purples. The formula will come in 4 different finishes including:

  • Sheer transparent with a hint of color
  • Sheer Metallic transparent with glitter
  • Creme medium coverage
  • Ultra Metallic full coverage

So there’s a little something for everyone! I got a chance to try 2 of them (WeHo and Finders Keepers) after receiving them as free gifts for my last haul. So far, I like them a lot. Both shades have a Creme finish that felt creamy and went on smoothly with semi-sheer coverage. The formula isn’t exactly moisturizing but it still felt good on the lips without feeling too sticky or tacky. I’m looking forward to seeing the full range and swatches because I would love to add a couple more to my collection to layer over my Ultra Matte Lips when they start to get a little dry. You can expect to see the full line available at ColourPop on July 21st at noon PST. Act fast though because you know ColourPop releases sell out in a blink of an eye!

ColourPop Haulin’!

ColourPop has to be the most addicting makeup brand ever. When ColourPop first hit the scene, I just couldn’t understand the huge fascination with them. Then I placed an order and it all clicked. From the shadows to the lipsticks, ColourPop makes some of the most amazing products I’ve ever tried. And they’re all under $10! So, by makeup junkie logic, I’d be doing myself a disservice to not try their new or limited edition products after having such a great run with them. Right? Don’t answer that.

ColourPop Pillow Talk Matte X Lippie Stix Review

ColourPop Pillow Talk Matte X Lippie Pencil

Summer usually calls for bright, glossy lips but there’s nothing wrong with being a rebel and taking a walk on the matte nude side. ColourPop recently released a new line of Matte X Lippie Stix that sports an ultra matte, shine-free finish in a variety of shades. I picked up a couple of pinks, of course, but I also had my eye on a few nudes too. Especially Pillow Talk. I love me some brown and grey nudes so when I saw that ColourPop combined the best of both worlds with the new Pillow Talk Matte X Lippie Stix I was all over it.
