Makeup Revolution Drops Kylie-Inspired Lip Kits!

Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit Swatches on Dark Skin

Can’t deal? Then fake it ’til you make it! We’ve all had those moments in life where we had to “fake it” to get through. Fake a smile and good demeanor at work. Fake your brain into thinking you really afford that hot new palette that just dropped. We all fake it! That’s why I wasn’t the least bit surprised when I came across these Kylie Jenner inspired lip kits from Makeup Revolution at Ulta.

Makeup Revolution is known for taking popular high end makeup releases and duping them into cheaper, more affordable versions that’s easily accessible. Some people see it as stealing. Or being a cheap knock off. Makeup Revolution simply believes in providing hard core makeup junkies with the hottest new beauty trends at a price that’s less intimidating to your wallet. You may not like it, but you can’t knock it either!

Be a Unicorn with the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Collection!

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Collection Swatches on Dark Skin

Why be basic when you can be a unicorn? The world is going unicorn crazy right now and I’m all for it! Unicorns are magical and majestic. Everything life should be, in my opinion. If I could, I would go around sprinkling glitter and confetti in a unicorn headband, fairy wings and a scepter. Currently, my schedule doesn’t permit such behavior so I’m living out my dreams vicariously through the new limited edition Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Collection. It’s filled with sparkly, glittery unicorn magic that’ll leave you feeling like a glowing mythical creature.

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Swatches 

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick in 1993, Conspiracy, Backtalk, Studded, WSM, Mad Swatches on Dark Skin

Okay, I love nudes and neutral shadows as much as the next girl but I couldn’t be happier to see Urban Decay moving the heck away from the Naked line for a second. Can I get an amen?! I know I can’t speak for everyone but I’m pretty sure most of you (like me) have grown tired of Urban Decay shoving Naked down our throats. It’s only so much nude a girl can take! Of course, you need your natural everyday foundation, powder, concealer and eyeshadow for simple looks. But you also need some color, girl!

New NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick Shades! 

NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Confident, Bustier, Cashmere Silk, French Maid, Delicate Lust, After Hours, Cabaret Show Swatches on Dark Skin

Every year, NYX drops a ton of new products on us and you know 2017 is no different! In fact, NYX is coming even harder this year because they’re trying hard to transition themselves from a drugstore brand to professional brand. And rightly so because that’s a huge jump. So NYX has to come guns blazing to truly nail it. Which means brand new products and shades! Whoop whoop!

One of the many new releases NYX has up their sleeves this year includes the recent expansion of the Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick lineup for spring. Some people hate them, some people love them. I happen to agree that they’re considerably drying but I obviously have a thing for the shades because I just can’t stop buying them. Damn you, NYX!

Plant Kisses for Days with the NYX Liquid Suede Vault! 

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Vault Swatches on Dark Skin

Don’t you hate when you set out to do something and then you get too busy to follow through? That’s exactly what happened to me all throughout the holiday season. I intended to show you guys so much more from swatches to looks but holiday at Ulta was slammed and it left me tired and playing a nasty game of catch up well into the new year. Take for instance the lovely limited edition NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Vault that dropped during holiday. It featured a whopping 24 mini Liquid Suede lipsticks for just $50. Crazy good, right?!

Except for the fact that it took me about 2 months to really sit down to shoot, arm swatch and also lip swatch all 24 shades. Whew! Unfortunately, the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Vault is all sold out by now. However, I still wanted to share all these swatches with you because all of the shades are permanent and readily available (in full sizes of course) at Ulta. So I guess we’ll just consider this a NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick library to help you shop!

I hope you’ve been enjoying your New Year! Here’s to hoping that 2017 is gentler yet still fierce. Because I think we can all agree that 2016 was a little rough around the edges. It wasn’t all bad though! We saw a lot of great releases, collaborations and more in the beauty community last year that blessed us with a lot of great products. I know I’m a little late to the party but there was no way I could truly kiss 2016 goodbye until I shared all of my favorite products with you. It’s only right!
