Hi all! These are are swatches of all the liquid lipsticks that Sugarpill has come out with! These smell great, apply evenly and last very long. These retail for about $18 each and Strange Love was featured in their Feline Fancy! Valentines Day collection.
Included with arm swatches are lip swatches of each color! Get ready! 🙂
For the lip swatches, I did them in the same order as the arm swatches to prevent confusion.
That’s it for these guys! I’m hoping that Sugarpill decides to release more liquid lipstick shades because their formula, scent and pigmentation on these is on point!
Hi loves! Today I’m going to swatch and show the Ofra and Manny limited edition liquid lip collaboration. I bought these last year I believe and they have a really nice texture and scent to them. You can buy the trio on Ofra’s website for $49.70 and always remember to use Affiliate codes for money off! When I first got these I was obsessed with them.
Of course you know I did these my usual way. I have arm swatches so you can see the shades and then I did lip swatches so you can see them on 🙂
These are very nice in texture, application, scent and lasting power. I know that almost every line has these shades but I’m a sucker for helping influencers and limited edition things.
Hi all! Did you all purchase anything from this launch on Saturday? I had a bit of a fit on Saturday with this launch. Let me set the scene for you all. Typically when I know there’s a huge launch, I log onto the site about five minutes before, set up my login credentials, and see if there’s anything else I could buy.
To be honest, I didn’t need anything but the bundle so I sat and waited. One o’clock rolled around and I put the bundle in my cart. I clicked checkout and PayPal and then a message came up. A message that said, there was a lot of traffic in the site and to hold on tight and it would process you through to your purchase. Basically a queue line. Let’s just say I hit checkout at 1:01 PM and was stuck there for 30 more minutes. When the page cleared, the bundle was sold out and in my opinion, completely messed up.
In complete frustration, I went on Beautylish and purchased the two lipsticks because I don’t wear much highlighter and it would have been a waste of money. I scored free two day shipping and now we’re here! I’m so happy with these. One nude shade and one gorgeous red. Let me show you all the things!
I swatched these for you all! I did an arm swatch and then on the lip! Enjoy!
Either way, grab these. They’re a great consistency, great shades and an overall pretty collaboration. Great work, guys ❤❤
Oh hi! I’m so happy to review this company! To be honest, I love reviewing indie brands and their fun products! They typically think out of the box more and have more unique shades of lip, eyeshadow and highlighters. Also, a lot of indie companies have an excellent product that also deserves recognition! I’m so happy to review a highlighter and liquid lip today from Baby Bat Beauty!
Baby Bat Beauty is located in Philadelphia, Pa. (Which is about an hour and a half away from my town) they just celebrated their company being a year old and released the Kill the Lights highlighter. It was $10 and is so cute. There’s a bat in the middle of the highlighter and smells like birthday cake! It is a confetti of colors. It has blue, pink, purple, green and yellow in it!
Let’s move on to the liquid lip! I wanted to buy more but I didn’t want them to not work for me and then I’ll never use them so I chose Bonfire Babe as my sample shade! A little while ago I purchased ‘Shroom’ from Lime Crime because I ADORE orange lipsticks! I loved Shroom so much… but the smell. It smelled like melted Play-Doh and it completely reeked all the way into my nostrils. I gave it away and longed for a nice orange that dried completely and didn’t smell like butt. It just so happens, Baby Bat Beauty has exactly what I was looking for!
Here’s a picture of the applicator:
This company is such a win! Please support your indie companies and their awesome products! ❤❤
In my opinion, not all black lipsticks are universal. They vary in shade, consistency, drying and how much they actually cover. I swatched the four black lipsticks that I own so you can see the differences and hear some pros and cons of each! Enjoy!
I did lip swatches and an arm swatch of all these for you so you can see how different they are.
Here are some lip swatches! We’ll go in the same order as they’re arm swatched! Yay!
There you have it! I would have to say that out of all of these, Melt’s Bane is my absolute favorite. It is matte, not sticky or drying, smells great and long lasting.
Ugh. This collection is just so cute and 100% vegan. Yes. A beautiful vegan red is included and so is a liquid lip in the shade ‘Strange Love’. I’ll give you some background on this collection for you. This was an adorable release on Valentine’s Day this year. The box art was illustrated by Brandi Milne. It is limited edition and so. worth. the. money. There’s going to be a lot of photos in this one so get ready!
That’s it for this adorable collection! Make sure to grab yours before it goes out of stock!
I think one of the more important issues with makeup are how there are so many counterfeits available. The sad part is how a lot of people don’t even realize that it is happening or if they have any. In this post I’m making it my makeup loving duty to inform the masses as much as I can about how harmful this can be and what you can do to make sure you don’t fall victim to any fakes. I was doing a lot of research before I decided to sit down and type this so I hope that it proves helpful.
Let’s start with what kind of harmful ingredients could be in fake makeup (eyeshadow, foundation, blush, lipstick, highlighter, etc…): sometimes when this makeup is stored and produced it isn’t kept in nice warehouses or stores. Sometimes it is kept in garages, places with dirt floors, places where quality control are nonexistent, and storage facilities with no climate control. That also creates a lot of bacteria and pests may get into the product. As a result, a lot of makeup will have human urine and rat dropping in it. Some of the foreign chemicals that were found in cheap knockoffs include: mercury, arsenic, cyanide, and lead. Counterfeit Benefit and MAC cosmetics have been found with 19 times the amount of lead in it than other counterfeit brands. All of these things can lead to burns, chemical reactions on skin, skin rashes, disfigurement, high blood pressure, and infertility. It isn’t worth it.
How does a brand get a counterfeit?
This is actually very simple. The more popular a product or brand is, the odds of it being copies increase dramatically. A lot of trending items on Instagram and what the Kardashians use are usually counterfeited. Some popular brands would be:
Ben Nye (Banana Powder)
Anastasia Beverly Hills (Master Palette by Mario, glow kits, and Modern Renaissance palette)
Too Faced (Cocoa Contour book, Chocolate Bar palettes, Peach palette, and KVD collab)
MAC (virtually every product especially the limited editions)
Huda Beauty (Rose Gold palette)
Jeffree Star (liquid lipsticks)
Kat Von D (Shade and Light, Monarch Pastel Goth palettes)
Makeup Geek X MannyMUA
Violet Voss (Holy Grail)
Obviously I missed some but this is what I found by only spending ten minutes on Wish. Only ten minutes.
What sites sell fake cosmetics?
To answer this question the easiest way would be… if you are looking for makeup on any site except for a product’s approved retailer, you put yourself at risk. Even sites like Poshmark and Mercari can prove a risk because people post pictures of a real product and send a fake. Only buy from approved sellers that a great rating and have no issue proving authenticity. Here’s a quick list of sites that are known to sell counterfeits:
and WeChat. WeChat is scary because people buy and sell individually with a person and is not regulated on a website.
How do I know if I have a fake item?
There are a lot of things to look for. I know on my Facebook, I have a live video discussing the differences between a real and fake Master Palette. Here are some way to check your makeup:
If there is a strong odor or chemical smell
Lower quality plastic or metals. It will feel light and flimsy.
Sponge applicators are given instead of brushes
Look for any spots of exposed cardboard, crooked gluing, magnets, misspellings, colors that are different or names that are different.
The product doesn’t look as full.
Sometimes the product will feel chalky and be thinner in consistency.
Every product has a serial number. Make sure that you research the real one and that the one up for sale matches it.
In this section, I’m going to add and explain some pictures of the items that I found.
I hope that this helps you all on your collecting journey! I’m going to do all that I can to keep people informed about new counterfeit products and in my photos I will keep posting up serial numbers that come on the products so you know which are real. Thanks for reading! ❤❤
