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:

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 (25 of 30)

27 Dec

I can’t believe we have only five more days of posting. Just to give you an idea of what’s to come for the week here are the names of the looks:

Monday: Chestnuts

Tuesday: Wintermint

Wednesday: Frosty (specially requested from a viewer….it’s EPIC!)

Thursday: Happy Newd Year (New and Nude combo)

Friday: For January first I’m doing the colors of the year. Which, spoiler alert, look like cotton candy together!

And now for today’s look! It’s a very day time appropriate look and i’m calling it Winterberry. It is definitely a great contrast of yesterdays and what is later in store for this week.

30 Days of Holiday Makeup Challenge. Day 25. “Winterberry”

I’m sorry if you’re disappointed in the eye makeup, but I really wanted the skin and lips to be the focus. I wanted the quintessential frosty/shimmer makeup to come through the face makeup rather then the skin. The photo catches it marginally. I’m sorry about the quality this was one of the pictures that I took with the $6 home depot clamp nights.
