I really love lipstick. It just pulls a look together, ya know? There are three things I can’t be without: mascara, lip color (of some kind) and my sterling silver hoop earrings. As long as I have those three things, I can feel put together. I went on a spree of sorts over the last week or two haha I mean, Tarte was having a sale, Jeffree Star launched his summer collection, Bloomingdale’s had an awesome “free gift with purchase” deal, and my cousin sells Younique. What’s a lippie lover to do?? Go a little crazy is the correct answer hahahaha so, I thought I’d share my crazy with y’all!
I didn’t go that crazy …
Okay, okay … maybe I did. Check out these colors though! I didn’t show the Lancôme lippies without their lids because it just didn’t make sense.
And check out these swatches! I will put captions on these photos so you know what you’re looking at.
Phew … I think I got all of that right haha There are some things about a few of the products you should know. The Tarte LipSurgence in Energy Noir is a sheer berry tint. The formula is designed to work with your pH to provide the perfect berry shade for you. I love lippies that do that! The Lancôme Juicy Shaker barely shows up. I mean barely. I am pretty disappointed. They aren’t kidding when they say “sheer tint of color.” Maybe it too closely matches my natural lip color to show up. I dunno, but it was kind of a waste of $22 for me. It may be my imagination, but I swear this Juicy Shaker smells like Hubba Bubba bubble gum to me. Mmmmmm!!! The Jeffree Star lippies are LOADED with glitter. LOADED! I don’t say that like it’s a bad thing, and clearly, you can see they are glittery. Be prepared for glitter EVERYWHERE when you go to remove them. I was not prepared hahahaha Also, I would recommend using an oil to remove the Velour Liquid Lipstick formulas. Liquid lipsticks can be difficult to remove, and this was no exception. It was easier than some formulas I’ve worn, though.
That’s it! That’s my lippie haul from the past two weeks, or so. What’s your favorite lippie formula? What’s your favorite shade? Lemme know!
