REVIEW TIME: Colourpop: Ultra Satin Lip

19 Mar

Are these worth your time and $$?

colour_pop_ultra_satin

 

 

What are they? A moussey, opaque liquid lipstick

Longevity: They wear fairly long, until you eat any vinegar, oil, excessive napkin wiping. Drink with a straw ladies!

Pigmentation: Really good!

Texture: This is also nice. It doesn’t feel as dry as the ultra mattes, but you’re sacrificing staying power.

Worth the buy? If you really really like the colors, I’d say go for it. From the ones I bought, I’m especially digging Toolips and Mess Around. I regret not buying Frick n Frack.

My Rating: B+

Here are the swatches:

top left to right: trap, kapow, teeny tiny.                                                                                                   bottom left to right: marshmallow, mess around, too lips

Here is a look I did with Mess Around. I used M.A.C.’s Chestnut liner. I’d say that it’s much cooler then Chestnut and I may try Cork next time.

Here is Mess Around!

I really like the color. It’s fairly unique. I especially like how pigmented it is.

What do you guys think?

Holiday Makeup Challenge (29 of 30)

31 Dec

This is called “Happy Nude Year” because of the nude lips and all.

30 Days of Holiday Makeup. Day 29 of 30. “Happy Nude Years”

I thought I’d do a nude lip and a simple two color eye makeup look. Most times new years eve outfits are brightly colored or sparkly so I so doing a nude and sparkle eye look would complement that well. I used the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liner in Midnight Cowboy. I’ve talked about these before but I’ll say it again. These are the best! You just have to brush on the glitter and you can layer to your desired amount. And it STAYS PUT!

Close up. Sorry it’s so blurry. My new years resolution is to take better quality pictures.

For this makeup look, I wanted to focus on the skin. When the ball is dropping or the whatever your state capital does, you want your skin to be radiant and glowing.
