Nyx Liquid Lipstick Swatches + Review

Hi Loves,

So many of you wanted me to Review and Swatch these new Lippies by NYX Cosmetics. I took a few days to try them out and let you know my honest opinion about this new release.

Price $7

Shades 12 colors ranging from nudes – browns

Formula/Application

The fomula is very similar to Colorpop Cosmetics. In many ways because of how much the formula changes from one color to another & because of the liquidy – mousey application.The lighter shades of the Nyx Liquid Lipstick are much harder to coat evenly then the darker shades. This means, take your time when applying them on your lips and do not coat to much all at once. The darker shades were my favorite. They were easier to work with and seemed to dry a bit quicker. If you are wondering if they are drying ABSOLUTELY, but how drying the liquid lipstick varies in what shade you are wearing. Some are very drying and some are just normal.

  • TIP: apply a lip balm before hand to help this liquid lipstick apply easier and coat better. Also, make sure to have your lips exfoliated or you will see patchy areas.

Longevity

Since the formula varies from one shade to another, it is hard to say how long each one lasts but approximately 4-5 hrs without liquid drinks or meals. They do remain on the lips for a few hours and are very hard to remove. Bring out that oil based makeup remover for these babies.

Review BECCA COSMETICS Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation

Hi loves,

I was fortunate enough to have all these new babies sent to me to try out! I was so excited to finally be able to try out a Becca Foundation. After trying it out for a few days I can now tell you how I feel about this foundation and who I think it will suit best.

For starters, my skin type is Normal- Combination, which means that I will be oily here and there but for the most part Normal. With the formula of this foundation I noticed it went on my skin like butter. If you are seeking to look dewy if you are “Normal Combination Skin” then this foundation YOU WILL love BUT if you are seeking a Matte look, this Foundation you will most likely return.

IF YOU ARE NORMAL- COMBINATION SKIN:

  • Set the foundation or it will leave your skin very very dewy
  • It might be a hit or miss
  • It will move around throughout the day

IF YOU ARE DRY You will absolutely love this foundation!

  • it is hydrating
  • feels like skin
  • long lasting
  • not cakey

IT CLAIMS

  • Price $44
  • lightweight
  • buildable
  • liquid foundation that imparts subtle luminosity with a weightless feel
  • 8 different Shades raging from Fair to Deep Bronze

TOOFACED CHOCOLATE BON BONS PALETTE, Is it worth it?

I have gotten asked over and over “Do you think I NEED the new Toofaced Chocolate Palette?” My answer is of “course not.” Do not get me wrong, I love my collecting Toofaced Chocolate bar Palettes, the Original Chocolate Bar is my go to palette and even have hit pan on many shades! This is my answer to “DO I NEED IT?”

ON the other hand if were talking about “WANTING IT…”

I cannot deny how cute the packaging is! The colors and formula are amazing, but if you are looking for everyday colors its best to stick to the orginal. SO what im basically saying is, if you have to invest in one Toofaced palette out of the 3, got with the Original Chocolate Bar and you will be in love. Unless of course you love to collect, now we are talking about something completely different. Collect all three and make your vanity your sanctuary of beauty.

First Impression: Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation

I was so excited to finally get the chance to try this foundation, that when testing it out for the very first time, I added way too much product! BUT thats what First Impressions are for, to learn about the application, how it is best applied, and to see if its a great match. I quickly learned that 3 drops per cheek would literally cover my entire face. TALK ABOUT FLAWLESS & FULL COVERAGE.

3 Key Points about the FOUNDATION:

  • PRICE: $55
  • Longevity: about 4-5 hrs
  • Complete Full Coverage
  • Make sure to set the Foundation
  • Great for Dry – Normal Skin
  • Demi Matte Finish (Velvety)
