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:

colourpop_ultra_stain_ultra_matte

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?

30 Days of Holiday Makeup. Day 28. “Frosty”

Today’s look was a special request by one of my youngest followers! Hello Indigo! I hope you like today’s snow queen inspired look. I’m calling it “Frosty” I really miss the snow. I’m spending Christmas and new years in Florida.

What is everyone doing for New Years?

I have to give it up to Viseart. The eye shadow and lips are a big thanks to the viseart eye shadow palettes. They are so finely milled and pigmented that blending and layering are a DREAM! And of course, I ironically used the Makeup Geek shadow in the color “Ice Queen” That made me giggle, I hope you do too!

These lashes are fantastic. They are by the Vegas_Nay. You might have heard of her, she’s got about 7 million followers on Instagram.

The headband is from Bevello, in case anyone is wondering! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. As always, I’m listing the products I used last. If you have any questions on how I achieved this look please comment below!

Holiday Makeup Challenge (26 of 30)

Today I’d thought I’d post another bold lip and tame eye look. This lip color literally looks good on everyone, but it especially looks good with red hair or warm medium skin to deep skin. See the product details below for how to achieve this lip color!

30 Days of Holiday Makeup. Day 26. “Chestnuts Roasting”

One of my favorite songs is “White Christmas” by Nat King Cole. I would probably listen to this song all year round, hence why I’m posting it after Christmas. This is a great everyday look, especially for redheads. But honestly, anyone can wear this look. It’s another Nars Audacious Lipstick, in the color Deborah -a beautiful red toned brown. Seriously, everyone can rock this. Every skin tone, hair color, whatever. You got this!

I tried to capture the color of chesnuts in the eyeshadow and have them roasting above the gold glitter on the bottom liner and the reddish lipstick.

Thanks for stopping by! Below are all of the products I used to create this look! Follow me on Instagram @beautybyburden

Holiday Makeup Challenge (24 of 30)

26 Dec

I know Christmas is over and we’re saying goodbye to family and heading back to our jobs, but the lights are still up because we are waiting for another celebration -new years! And we’re probably not ready to take down the lights yet anyways.

One year I left my Christmas decorations up until May. Needless to say, I did not put them up this year. That was partly due to the fact that I wasn’t going to be home for Christmas and I was too busy putting makeup on myself to care much about them! 🙂

Today’s look is called Holiday Lights. I initially was just going to do glitter on the liner and have the lid colors just be shimmery, but then i just covered my lids (not the crease or above the crease) with glitter! I didn’t apply the glitter haphazardly though, the colors were deliberate so that it would have a smooth transition.

30 Days of Holiday Makeup. Day 24. “Holiday Lights”

If you would like I can post the alternate pictures of those to instagram. Just let me know in the comments below.

For the glitter I used my trusty Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. It’s so easy to apply! You just brush it on. It comes in many great colors. I used all but two of them!

holidayMAKEUPglitterEYESHADOW

Sorry the picture quality is not great.

If you’ve kept up with looking at my makeup looks all along you might think this one is similar to the “Christmas in Miami” DAY 12 makeup look. For “Christmas in Miami” I used the matte editorial palette 08 by Viseart. Holiday Lights mainly consists of shimmery (foil) Makeup Geek shadows with the Viseart matte shadow in the crease. I will do a review on Viseart and Makeup Geek in the new year!
