Valentine’s Day inspired makeup!

valentines day inspired makeup

Hey everyone! I decided to do a glowy, softer look last night in honor of Valentine’s Day! 💖

Face:

  • L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion in N2
  • Sephora Gel Serum Concealer in Meringue
  • Hourglass Mood Exposure & Mood Light
  • Benefit Hoola
  • Sephora Contour Powder in Tranquil
  • Kat Von D Thunderstruck for highlight

 

Brows:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Taupe
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel

 

Eyes:

  • Viseart Neutral Matte Palette
  • Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma
  • Kat Von D Thunderstruck for brow highlight & inner corners
  • Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara

 

Lips:

  • Pink Velvet by Lime Crime

 

This was my first time wearing the L’Oreal cushion foundation. It was very lightweight and comfortable, and the coverage was natural and skin-like, but after a few hours I noticed some dry patches became more noticeable. The past week has been bitter cold though, and my skin is absolutely parched, which could have caused the patches to appear.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! 💕

Favorite Fall Liquid Lipsticks!

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

It’s feeling more and more like fall every day here! Almost all of the leaves have changed, it’s chilly and brisk, and all I want to do is curl up with a warm cup of cocoa and watch spooky movies!

The weather has gotten me in the mood to start breaking out my darker lip colors to wear out and about. Some get more wear than others, but I have compiled a list of my favorites that will get the heaviest rotation this fall!

fall favorites liquid lipsticks swatches

Left to Right: Jeffree Star Posh Spice, Ofra x KathleenLights Miami Fever, Colourpop Tulle, ABH Trust Issues, Jeffree Star Unicorn Blood, Lime Crime Salem, Colourpop Guess.

posh-spice

Jeffree Star – Posh Spice. I mentioned this color in a previous review post, but it has become my favorite nude for fall. It’s a gorgeous muted taupe that looks chic yet edgy, which is exactly what I hope to achieve! The formula of Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks are also to die for. If you haven’t bought any, I highly recommend checking them out.

miami-fever

Ofra x KathleenLights Miami Fever. I have been pleasantly surprised by this one! I bought it for the unique color, a burnt red-orange, but when I received it, I was apprehensive of the formula. It has a similar consistency to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, which just do not work for me. However, this creamy formula has pretty marvelous staying power and is very comfortable on the lips. I may buy another when it is restocked on 10/26 so I don’t run out!

tulle

Colourpop Tulle. This is a muted berry color that complements a variety of skintones. It’s bold, but is understated enough to wear in a variety of scenarios, even to work! Colourpop’s formula is significantly drier than most liquid lipsticks, and dries very fast, so you have to work very quickly when applying. However, once it’s on there, it’s on there to stay!

trust-issuesAnastasia Beverly Hills Trust Issues. Trust Issues is a similar color as Tulle, but it’s darker, more vibrant, and a little more purpley (is that a word? haha). This was the first ABH liquid lipstick that I purchased, and I really like the formula! It’s a thick cream that applies smoothly and dries down evenly.

unicorn-bloodJeffree Star Unicorn Blood. OH MY LAWD, this color. This is by far my all-time favorite for fall, my favorite red lipstick, my favorite lipstick period! It’s the most amazing deep red that looks good with so many different EOTDs. It always applies perfectly and it works with so many different skintones. I seriously recommend this to anyone that’s looking for a good red, because it’s downright amazing. Unf.

salemLime Crime Salem. This was the first liquid lipstick that I ever purchased, the one that started it all. It’s a beautiful chocolate brown that looks so 90s and grungey. It goes perfectly with warm-toned neutrals and oranges, like those in Morphe’s 35O palette or in the Lorac Mega Pro 2, but it will also work with a lot of other color families as well!

guessColourpop Guess. Guess is a super-dark purple, but in most lighting and in pictures, it pulls a blue-black color. I love this color because it makes my inner goth quite happy, but since it’s so extreme, it doesn’t get the amount of wear it deserves. I do like to wear this out to bars and other laidback places like that. It makes me feel like such a badass when i wear it, so I will definitely keep it around and continue to wear it!

Did any of these colors make your Fall Favorites list? What other colors do you think are perfect for fall? Comment below and tell me. I’m always down to discover new lip colors!

First Impressions: Lime Crime Velvetines – Squash

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

Squash is described as a “glowstick orange.” I bought this product because I love orange lip colors and liquid lipsticks, so this was a win-win.

It took about a week to arrive, and I was honestly excited to try this product out. Lime Crime are known for their wild colored products and for catering to those with unique styles. I have purchased a few other Velvetines in the past, from 3rd parties, and I loved the formula. So naturally, I expected this product to be of the same quality.

Unfortunately, I was mistaken. When I opened the tube, I noticed the formula felt a little thicker than usual. It was extremely pigmented, but when I applied it, it went on very streaky. I added a little in certain areas to touch it up and it dried quickly. However, in the short time it took me for look it over in the mirror and then take the picture above, it began to crack and split. The other Velvetines I own have never done that.

I removed it and re-applied, thinking that maybe I just applied too much, but it continued to happen, even after just one streaky swipe across my lips.

I am very disappointed in this product. Not only was the formula sub-par and inconsistent with other Velvetines, but IMO the color was not quite what I expected either. In swatches it looked lovely, but it pulls very yellow-orange in person and reminds me of Velveeta.

Needless to say, I will not be wearing this again. I have not seen many swatches or reviews about the latest Lime Crime releases, but I’m hoping my review helps anyone who is thinking about buying this color!
