Hi friends! My birthday is in six days and then I kiss my 20s goodbye. When I did my last Sephora purchase I decided to cash in some points and grab my birthday gift. They had the Fresh skincare set, a Jack Black skincare set and this new Tarte blush and lipstick mini that I’ve never seen before. I was intrigued and chose this cute guy.
Look at how cute this little duo is! Both are very light shades that compliment every skin tone.
I took a bunch of photos of this cute bundle and yes the shades are exclusive to the birthday set.
The back of the box shows that this set is vegan and cruelty-free! Yay! It has an ingredient list of both the blush and the lipstick and their names!
This was a pretty shot of both products. My vanity is proving to be a nice place to take detailed photos.
Now for the swatches. I did a brush and finger swatch of the blush and a lip swatch of the lipstick. Enjoy!
Here is the arm swatch of the blush. If you notice, it is very subtle when a brush is used.
And now for the lip swatch!
Please excuse the discontent on my face. It was in the middle of a year wave and I wasn’t too happy. Haha. This shade is a darker nude that works great with my skin tone.
There you all have it! I enjoyed both products and this nude lipstick actually doesn’t look awkward like some of them do on my skin. Xo!
Hi friends! Today I decided to swatch Fantasy Allure’s only liquid lipstick shade, ‘Enchanted Rose’. This was originally a kickstarter campaign from last year. If you donated a certain amount of money you received the lipstick and a fun gift. I did the $30 donation for the lipstick and a compact mirror.
They describe this shade as a ‘deep red with gold glitter’. It also has a faint vanilla scent and completely dries down in about three minutes. It is pretty long lasting but if you are eating, you may need to reapply. This is also vegan and cruelty-free! Yay!
I like this shade and seriously wish there were more colors. I know they stated in their campaign that if they raised more money than they were asking, they would release more colors. I’m still silently hoping it happens.
For the swatches, I did an arm swatch for you all and then a lip one so you can see it applied!
There you guys have it! This is for sale on their website along with some fairy claw thingies. Grab both if you Like! Xo
Hi friends! Sorry I got my posts up so late today but my daughter is finishing up Kindergarten and I had some random things to do today. This came out last year around the Christmas holiday. It retailed for $99. In Jeffree Star Cosmetics’s Holiday Collection there were seven shades that could be bought together or separately for $18 each. If you have been reading my posts for a bit now you know that Jeffree’s lipsticks are my go to. His new Summer Collection is launching June 24th. So before that launches, I wanted to put up more of his shades.
As usual for you all, I have arm swatches of each shade and a nice collage of all the lip swatches! Enjoy!
Hi friends! I’m sorry that I didn’t get to post earlier today but I was a chaperone at my daughter’s school. It was a long and trying day but pretty fun. I did a bunch of swatches yesterday for this post because I had some extra time because of the rain.
This makeup company is awesome. They have a bunch of new and bright shades, a pretty nice formula and the best of all, they’re affordable (only $16 a piece!) Makeup Monsters is a good substitute for some if Jeffree Star’s shades need it be if they’re sold out or you just don’t support the brand.
Okay, here comes the fun part: the swatches! I did two sets of arm swatches and then a nice lip collage for you all!
Here is the last picture for this review. A quick collage of all the shades put into one so you .can see how they look!
That’s all that I have about this brand! Make sure to check them out and they usually have codes for first time buyers! Xo
Hi loves! I’m so sorry that it’s been three days since my last post! I had my daughter and fiancee’s birthday on Friday and then we drove up to this bed and breakfast about three hours away. I had no phone service or makeup with me haha. It was nice to get away for a bit. Well now that I’m back in the Monday swing, I’ve swatched a ton of liquid mattes for you today. I swatched nine shades from Caked Makeup. They recently released three other shades that I haven’t purchased yet because I have my eye on some other things first!
The formula with these guys are like a very soft buttery formula that lasts pretty long through eating and wear. They have some nudes and really nice red shades. They also smell like vanilla cupcakes!
With the swatches I have for you, I have arm swatches and a collage of all the shades on my lips! I must say that all these swatches were super hard on the lips!
I put the lip swatches in a fun collage just because I thought nine separate pictures would make this article very long. So in the picture, you will see me wearing every shade for you!
These shades are pretty affordable! They’re $16 each and are so worth it. The wear is great and they’re not drying! Check them out!
Hi friends! I decided to do a tiny review on some liquid lipsticks today! I have three Jeffree Star metallic liquid lipsticks. I love Jeffree’s formula for his lipsticks. They dry quickly, are pigmented and comfortable to wear. These were $18 each.
I did my swatches in the usual manner, arm swatches first and then individual lip swatches!
There you all have It! These are a very good formula, designed for long wear and are very comfortable.
Hi! We all know how much I adore LunatiCK Cosmetic Labs. They just released a second contour book that I am too broke to afford currently. Anyways, they have these really nice lipsticks that are opaque and come in super unique shades. They retail for $12 each, have a minty scent, and are super colorful. It is importanr to note that a little product goes a long way with these and that they are NOT transfer proof and they do NOT dry matte.
I did include individual lip swatches of these guys with my face included! Yes! 🙂
These are so fun if you’re looking into bold colors that aren’t matte! Just remember that a little goes a long way and that they may feather around the lips if you have too much on! Xo
