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.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Bobbi Brown Hot Pink Lip Gloss

Don’t feel like you can pull off a bright summer pink lip? No biggie girl. That’s what gloss is for! I know everyone isn’t super comfortable slipping on a poppin’ pink lipstick so this Pink Wednesday’s feature is just for you. Bobbi Brown has a beautifully perky Hot Pink Lip Gloss to help you rock a bright pink lip this summer in a more subtle, laid-back way. Bobbi’s Hot Pink Lip Gloss is a cute strawberry pink that’s mostly sheer so it isn’t overpowering or super vibrant. Instead, Hot Pink gives lips just the right amount of color to show off a little flirty pink flush while still allowing your natural lip color to peek through a bit.

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Lip Coming Soon!

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Lip in 3-Way, Kween, Zebra and Maneater

Move over matte! There’s a new liquid lipstick formula in town and it’s taking the makeup world by storm these days. Metallic liquid lipsticks are starting to become a huge hit with brands like Wet n Wild, Milani and now ColourPop jumping on board. The lovelies over at ColourPop hopped on Snapchat yesterday to reveal that they’ve cooked up yet another new release for us: Ultra Metallic Lip. Yaaaaaas, ColourPop! The Ultra Metallic Lip is, of course, a new formula that’s filled with glitter to give our lips a fun metallic rush for summer. The formula is said to be similar to the Ultra Satin Lip as it’s not completely transfer proof and doesn’t seem to sport an ultra matte finish. Sounds good right? Lucky for us, we won’t have to wait too long to get our hands on the new Ultra Metallic Lips as ColourPop will be releasing the first 4 shades with limited quantities tomorrow. There’s no word on a set time for the Ultra Metallic Lip release so you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled to the site to catch the first round. Don’t worry though! ColourPop will be restocking them with a full release very soon in case you miss out!

Will you be ordering any of the new Ultra Metallic Lips?

Rock Cute Lips & Cheeks All Summer with Tarte!

Cute Lips & Cheeks All Summer with Tarte

I don’t know about you but I just love sales! A few weeks ago, Tarte was feeling super generous with a 30% off sitewide sale. Most times, I take sitewide sales with a grain of salt because they don’t actually include everything on the site like the name implies. Especially Tarte’s. Tarte is known for handing out discount codes like Oprah hands out cars that you can’t even use on the really good stuff like their new or limited edition products. This time around, though, things were different. You could actually take 30% off sitewide. No gimmicks! So I did what any normal makeup junkie would do. I ordered up all of the new stuff I wanted and then tossed in a blush for good measure.

ColourPop So Wavy Ultra Satin Lipstick Review

ColourPop So Wavy Ultra Satin Lipstick

When it comes to liquid lipsticks ColourPop has it all. From basic nudes to crazy colors like green and grey, you can find it all at ColourPop–no problem. That’s what I love about ColourPop. It’s super easy to find the perfect lipstick for whatever mood you’re in. Even if you’re in the mood for an electric blue-purple. I don’t always wake up and think to myself, “Hmm, I’m thinking blurple lips today.” However, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want one in my collection for those random moments where bold blurple lips are where it’s at.
