Too Faced Melted Metallic Lipstick Round Up

Too Faced Melted Metallic Jelly Dream House Violet Lipstick

TGIF! My best friend is in town for a few more days and I’m off this weekend so I’m feeling great and life just seems easy right now. Can’t wait to knock out this last shift and get some dranks! But before I go have probably a little too much fun I want to make your your Friday a little easier too. So here’s a quick round up of my Too Faced Melted Metallic Lipstick Haul!

The Melted Metallic Lipsticks are similar to the original Melted Lipsticks but they’re still in totally different ballparks. The Melted Metallic Lipsticks are thinner and have a bit more sheen along with a subtle metallic shift. Too Faced markets them as liquid lipsticks but they feel more like glosses to me as they’re mostly sheer (yet buildable), never fully set and don’t last too long (3-5 hours). However, I still enjoy the formula! I do like the original Melted Lipsticks a little better but the Melted Metallic Lipsticks are still quite comfortable to wear and look great on the lips.

Told ya, I was going matte lip crazy over here! And why wouldn’t I? Makeup companies just don’t seem to be letting up. We can now add Kat Von D to the ever growing list of summer matte releases as she recently announced on Instagram that there’s going to be 15 new shades coming in July. I literally wanted to faint when I seen the picture because I already spot at least 6 shades that I may want. I can’t wait for the next peek at these!

Will you be getting any of the new Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks?

Ruby Kisses Matte Lipstick Haul & Swatches

Ruby Kisses Purple Affair Plum Wine Fuchsia Fierce Nude Rose Lilac Matte Lipstick

Anyone else going matte lip crazy right now? First, it was the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. Next, was the Ruby Kisses Queen Matte Lip Lacquer. Then, I started digging the Sephora Cream Lip Stains. Now MAC is releasing a crap ton of new, permanent matte lipsticks after I already grabbed a handful of the new Ruby Kisses Matte Lipsticks. My pockets just can’t catch a break this summer!

So I’ve finally joined SnapChat! If you’re not familiar with SnapChat, it’s a picture and video sharing app you can download on your smartphone (iOS and Android). Everyone has been obsessed with it lately so I figured I’d give it a go too. I love Instagram (follow me here) and as I’m saving up for some YouTube equipment (extremely excited!!) I thought it would be a cool idea to ease myself into it via SnapChat. Since I mostly work evenings and nights, I often don’t have time to catch the daylight and snap some good pics. However, I can still add some pretty fuzzy ones on SnapChat from my front facing camera while slacking off in the break room, right? And how about some quick yet awkward “get ready with me” vids and tutorials, too? Sounds like it could be fun! Meet me over on SC to join in! My screen name is: fancieland.

Lancôme Violette Pirouette Lip Lover Review

Lancome 361 Violette Pirouette Lip Lover

Sometimes in the beauty world, companies release products with gimmicky names that don’t always make sense. Like the CoverGirl Lip Lava glosses. I like the name, it’s cute. But when I think of lava, I think of hot. Not, “Ooo hot metallic glitta!” However, it seems that Lancôme was a little more spot on with their cute, yet gimmicky Lip Lover glosses. The first time I tried Violette Pirouette, I thought, “Wow. This stuff really does love lips!”

Here’s a quick rundown on my favorite looks:

The couple that slays together, stays together! Sure, John Legend cleaned up pretty nice last night but his wife, Chrissy Teigen, was the true star of the show in this Balmain gown. She’s serving us pure old Hollywood glamour and I’m scraping my plate over here!

Unruly Brows? Try This!

wpid-img_20150517_041638.jpg

It’s been about 3 years since I first started teaching myself how to apply makeup and there’s some things I still struggle with. Brows are one of them. Some days, my brows just behave and turn out great. Other days, they just do their own thing and it drives me kinda nuts. My brows are a pretty tough case to crack. They’re sparse yet thick at the same time. I have random hairs that grow everywhere but where I need them. And since I’ve been in the process of growing them out I have some pesky strays that make filling them a headache sometimes.
