Highlight your lips with HIGHLIGHT Liquid Lipstick

highlight-logo

One of our favorites things about Sunday is the chance to introduce you to brands that are new to us and possibly to you. This week is a special brand because it’s a liquid lipstick that we’ve been introduced to and has made us glow with happiness.                                   #prsample

Highlight Cosmetics Pink Sapphire and Sandstone Cashmere Matte Liquid LipstickHighlight Cosmetics Pink Sapphire and Sandstone Cashmere Matte Liquid Lipstick
Highlight Cosmetics
is a new brand on the market that’s made in California. The brand consists of 10 matte Liquid Lipsticks which are all the craze right now. You can find matte lipsticks at every price point nowadays but it’s rare to find a brand that contains amazing ingredients that are not only good for your lips but also for your insides. HIGHLIGHT COSMETICS’ philosophy is “Highlight your inner beauty“. When we first read that we knew that there had to be more to this than just beautiful colors.

Just look at this list of ingredients. It would make this post too long to list all the pros about them so we’ll narrow it down:

Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Oil
improves lip softness,prevents the appearance of dry and chapped lips, has antibacterial properties

Camellia Sinensis Leaf (Green Tea) Extract
improves the moisture barrier of skin, is an antioxidant, reduces the appearance of lip inflammation

Camellia Oleifera Leaf (White Tea) Extract
Contains carotenoids and vitamins that build the appearance of damaged skin, dimishes the look of dry skin

LAMINARIA Ochroleuca (Kelp) Extract Prevents appearance of skin damage caused by the sun, aids in skin moisturization

Benefit Peptide called Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide reduces the appearance in lip wrinkle depth and volume

Now onto the two Highlight Liquid Lipsticks that we received and our reviews. See all 10 HERE.

MARCIA IS A FAN OF SANDSTONE CASHMERE

Highlight Cosmetics Sandstone Cashmere liquid lipstick

Highlight Cosmetics Sandstone Cashmere liquid lipstick

As someone who doesn’t normally choose dark lips Highlight Sandstone Cashmere is a terrific shade for me. Not everything that’s described as nude is truly nude – we all have different skin tones so that makes sense. Sandstone Cashmere though is the kind of light nude that I picture in my head when I think of nude. Highlight doesn’t describe the shades but their website gives you accurate pictures of what you’ll get.

This lipstick surprised me from the get go. It is the most comfortable matte I’ve ever used. It doesn’t show fine lines easily, it doesn’t crack, and it lasts. I’ve been wearing this often because of the lightweight feel of it on my lips. I don’t feel like I’m wearing lipstick and I’m not afraid to eat or drink wearing it. If I have to reapply it goes on smoothly without disturbing the color left on my lips.

While there’s a touch of pink in Sandstone Cashmere on my lips it only shows up if I use a pinker liner with it. But this goes on so smoothly and evenly that I prefer it without a liner. If you are looking for a true nude and an on trend matte, Highlight Sandstone Cashmere needs to be on your lips.

 LISA IS A FAN OF PINK SAPPHIRE

Highlight Cosmetics Pink Sapphire Matte Liquid LipstickSo this Liquid Lipstick was certainly a surprise for me too. I had a heck of a time when I first tried to open it because I thought for sure it was actually a  lipstick…it took me more time than I’d like to admit to realize it was lip gloss with a twist off cap! The Pink Sapphire shade surprised me too…it looks fuchsia pink in the tube and swatched, but it is surprisingly more subtle and very pretty on.

Highlight Cosmetics Pink Sapphire Matte Liquid Lipstick

Highlight Cosmetics Pink Sapphire Matte Liquid Lipstick

I love the color and the formula impresses me too. It is extremely pigmented and wears for hours without fading or settling into lip lines. After a few hours I typically add a clear gloss over top just because I like the feel of some slip on my lips, and doing so doesn’t compromise the color or wear at all. Nice! The formula is water-resistant and it doesn’t transfer to my coffee cup or my husband’s lips, which is a huge bonus. Pink just isn’t his shade.

What a find – a matte liquid lipstick that has beautiful shades and excellent wear time is awesome, but one that also conditions and keeps lips soft thanks to turmeric and safflower oil is fantastic.

We are big fans of the Highlight Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick.  Be sure to check them out – we just know there is a perfect shade for you!

Getting ‘Lippy’ with Butter London Toff and Queen Vic

Are you a ‘pop of color’ person, or more of a nudist? Whatever your preference, if you love the shine of lip gloss but prefer the wear of lipstick, Butter London’s Lippy Liquid Lipstick ($18) could be just what you are looking for. I’ve been a fan for a long time and Butter London recently sent me both classic and sassy with the shades Toff and Queen Vic.

Butter London LippyAs a liquid lipstick, Lippy’s offer full coverage and lots of shine. The LIPPY Liquid Lipstick has a thick, slightly sticky texture with lots of pigment and far more staying power than a lip gloss. It’s very shiny on, and that shine lasts through most things…although like almost all lip products, it’s not going to last through a jumbo bucket of buttered popcorn.

The opaque colors definitely read more like lipstick than like lip gloss. Lippy Liquid Lipstick doesn’t dry out my lips and to me they taste and smell very slightly and pleasantly of vanilla. Personally, I think Lippy’s have a great mouth feel and slip, although I know some people prefer a less sticky texture.

So let’s talk color. Butter London recently released several new shades of Lippy including Tickled Pink, Bonkers, and Fruit Cake.  I was sent Toff, one of the original shades, which is a classic creamy mauve with lots of shine. It gives my lips just enough color to be a shade over nude, which I love since my naturally pale lips pretty much disappear without any lip product.

Butter London Lippy in Queen Vic

I was also sent Queen Vic, a happy, bright cranberry with a bit of sparkle. I’m not sure if this is a new shade – I know it matches the nail polish with the same name, which I see is available at Butter London online.

However, it looks like the Queen Vic Lippy is currently out of stock, which is a shame – I adore this shade!! It’s my current go-to for bright (but not TOO bright) lips with lots of shine.

I am anxious to try some of the new shades, especially Bonkers and Fruit Cake. I hope you can find Queen Vic, because it’s awesome…and if not, I know you can find Toff which a great everyday Lippy.  – Lisa

Max Factor is back and I’m loving it

Max Factor mascara, lipsticks, and eyeliner

Max Factor mascara, lipsticks, and eyeliner

When MAX FACTOR left the United States it was a sad time for lovers of their mascara. It was the only brand of mascara that I could count on from the drugstore. I had a few spare and used them up with sorrow. When they emailed and said they were bringing a limited amount of products back to the US I was thrilled and quickly sent my address for these samples. Now I’m going to be sad again if this was just a tease and they don’t stick around.

The four MAX FACTOR X products that are available are MASTERPIECEMAX mascara, MASTERPIECE High Precision Liquid Eyeliner, and LIPSTICKS in Simply Nude and Maroon Dust. Obviously a limited number that hopefully will grow.

MAX FACTOR X MASTPERPIECEMAX HIGH VOLUME AND DEFINITION MASCARA is available in Velvet Black locally (try Walgreens or Target) for $9.99.

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara

The brush is a high tech IFX brush and is said to have 4x more volume than you’d have without. What I’ve found though is that the definition I get from this mascara is what stands out and reminds me of what I’d been missing.

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara

Max Factor was the one that started the craze of using a rubber brush and soon everyone followed. This mascara has never smudged on me even after a nap. I don’t end up with pieces of mascara under my eyes. It’s on my lashes even through 12+ hour days. I instantly get definition and with two coats I get volumizing. If I decided to add a third coat there’d be even more volume.

Wearing MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara and MASTERPIECE Liquid Eyeliner

Wearing MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECEMAX mascara and MASTERPIECE Liquid Eyeliner

MAX FACTOR X MASTERPIECE HIGH PRECISION LIQUID EYELINER ($9.99) is an intense black liquid liner with a non-typical brush. The brush is more like a paddle brush though on the small side. I’m used to a pencil tip so I had some problems with this liner. My picture is my first attempt with it and I wasn’t happy with the result. The liner is great if you like a thicker line but even with practice I’m not getting the thin line I prefer.

My eyes have never done well with a cat eye look since they are droopy at the ends. I’ve had pros do the look on me and it’s okay but I am a klutz when it comes to a cat eye or thick liner. But those of you who can wear a cat eye will love this deep dark slightly shiny liner.

max factor lipsticks 2

MAX FACTOR X LIPSTICKS ($9.99) are available in just two shades. These are both perfect for me but may be too light for many others. These are both renditions of nude lips and I’m head over heels in love with them. The one that really stole my heart is Simply Nude. This is a pink nude that I wear with a nude lipliner (Chanel Nude or Milani Nude) and it’s exactly the shade I’m most comfortable wearing. max factor both lipsticksSimply Nude is a light pink cool shade while Maroon Dust is warm peach nude on my lips. They are creamy and wonderfully comfortable to wear. I had been anxious to buy Charlotte Tilbury Kim K W lipstick but once I wore Simply Nude that desire disappeared since I think it gives an almost identical look color.

There’s no time to waste. This limited collection won’t be around for long. I know I’m ordering the mascara from Target in multiples since it meets all my criteria. I am really hoping that Max Factor sees the error of its ways and realizes that we need them back in the good old USA!

Beautiful bargains from Rimmel and N.Y.C.

RIMMEL Magnif'Eyes and NYC Get It All

RIMMEL Magnif’Eyes and NYC Get It All

The lazy, hazy days of summer sometimes need a pick-me-up and if you are reading this blog that usually means something cosmetic. When that feeling pops up there’s nothing like a drugstore trip to add a new product to your life. Having received 2 of the Rimmel London Magnif’eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner and 3 NYC NEW YORK COLOR GET IT ALL ALL IN ONE LIP COLORS was a definite boost in these lazy days.

There’s so much to love with the Rimmel London Magnif’eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner that 2 aren’t quite enough. These amazing shadow crayons and liners are the smoothest I’ve tried in ages and the price is so right at MSRP $6.47. How do you pick from these shades? #001 Back To Black, Liner: Matte Black, Shadow: Gun Metal Grey (high pearl with glitter), #002 Kissed By A Rose Gold, Liner: Brown (low pearl), Shadow: Rose Gold (medium pearl), #003 Queens Of The Bronzed Age, Liner: Gold (high pearl with glitter), Shadow: Bronze (medium pearl), #004 Dark Side Of Blue, Liner: Matte Cobalt Blue, Shadow: Dark Grey (low pearl), #005 Pink & Purple Rain, Liner: Matte Dark Plum,  Shadow: Light Pink (high pearl with glitter)rimmel collage

 

I’ve got Pink & Purple Rain along with Kissed by a Rose Gold. These 2-in-1 pencils are easy to apply and last me the entire day. I don’t even have to use an eyeshadow primer with the crayon end since they last through even these incredibly hot and humid days.

Rimmel Magnif'Eyes liner end

Rimmel Magnif’Eyes liner end

The liners are kohl kajal so they are intense and long wearing. Not only can they be worn as eyeliner on the top or bottom but they can be used on the waterline. The shadow side is incredible with a long lasting, creaseproof, and waterproof formula. These are total love with Kissed by a Rose Gold especially getting a lot of wear.

NYC Get It All lipsticks in PINKdigious, ExeptioNUDE, ImpREDsive

NYC NEW YORK COLOR GET IT ALL ALL IN ONE LIP COLOR ($2.99) are new to NYC New York Color Cosmetic’s line. These are very creamy with a good wear time. The finish is shiny and the colors can be intense.

Colors available are ImpREDssive, WondeREDfu, IncREDible,  FUCHSIAtastic,  FabFUCHSIA,

ExeptioNUDE, MOCHAmazing, ExtraordiBERRY, and TerrifiCORAL

 

They have a candy like fragrance that reminds me of Cherry Lik-M-Aid (am I aging myself?) which was always my favorite. likmaidI have the NYC Get It All lipsticks in ExeptioNUDE, PINKdigious, and ImpREDssive. ExeptioNUDE is a mauve nude, PINKdigious is a bright pretty pink, and ImpREDssive is a hot red shade that will get you noticed. Using a light coat of these will give you more of a sheer look but they are easy to intensify with more than one coat plus they’ll last longer that way.

Variety galore with Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Ultra Blush Palette

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Blush Palette

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Blush Palette

If you are ready for the prettiest blush palette of the season, I have the perfect solution for you. Just check out the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette, Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold. Be ready to swoon. When I was sent this palette for review my mouth totally dropped open when I took it out of the box.

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Blush Palette

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Blush Palette

I stared at it for so long because I couldn’t believe the gorgeous shades it contained. As a fan of rose gold in my fashion and cosmetic life I was eager to receive this and the realization is better than I ever expected. The palette consists of 4 baked powder shades, 2 shiny highlighters, and 2 matte pressed powder shades for bronzing or blushing.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette Golden Sugar 2

Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette Golden Sugar 2

Numbers 1 through 4 are the ones I’m getting the most use out of. #1 is a soft warm pink, #2 is a beautiful swirly peach, #3 is a glowy light creamy peach, while #4 is a stunning glowy rose. These all feel like they are baked powders so they aren’t particular soft when you touch them with your fingers but they apply beautifully with any brush I’ve used.

Now comes the variety since I like to mix and match all the shades in the palette. I like to layer these and as I’m typing this out I’m wearing number 1 and 7 as my cheek color.

Top row swatches 1, 3, 5, 7 Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2

Top row swatches 1, 3, 5, 7 Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2

#5 is a simply amazing gold that makes a fabulous highlighter. Plus I wear this on my eyes. This is very soft and it doesn’t take a lot to get a glowy yellow gold that is so striking. #6 is the only one that has any glitter to it and even then the glitter isn’t overwhelming. #6 is the one that gives this palette its Rose Gold name. It’s not subtle on me but it is gorgeous.

#7 is so soft to the touch, I find it to be mauve on me but I think different skin tones will pick this up differently. I consider this a bronzer but that’s because I don’t wear brown bronzers. #8 is the brownest shade in the palette but it’s such a light shade on me that it’s perfect.

There is so much diversity in this palette that it will keep you blushing and glowing through fall and beyond. The best part is that it’s $10 – that’s it – just $10 for 8 colors!

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Ultra Blush Palette and Chauffeur lipstick

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Ultra Blush Palette and Chauffeur lipstick

We can’t stop with just blush when we know that there are 5 lipsticks in this Rose Gold collection. 5 for the price of $5 each. 5 creamy, smooth, pigmented, non-fragranced lipsticks! I have Chauffeur which is ideal for my taste and there’s also Red Carpet (red), Private Members Club (black), Diamond Life (chocolate), and Girl’s Best Friend (bright pink).

Makeup Revolution Chauffeur Lipstick

Makeup Revolution Chauffeur Lipstick

Chauffeur is a rose nude I can wrap my head around – actually wrap my lips around. It’s not deathly pale but it’s light. I look like I’m wearing lipstick when it’s on. If I want to deepen it then I’ll use a lipliner all over which also assists the lipstick in lasting for a longer time. The packaging of the Rose Gold collection is contemporary and rich looking. No one would expect this to be as well priced as it is.

Side by Side with Shea Moisture

shea moisture logo

How many brands do you know of that have been around since 1912? Of those brands, which ones have become more relevant in the 2000’s than they were before? There might be a few but the one we think you should notice is SHEA MOISTURE. It was started in 1912 by a woman named Sofi Tucker who started selling Shea Nuts at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone in 1912. By age 19, the widowed mother of four was selling Shea Butter, African Black Soap and her homemade hair and skin preparations all over the countryside. Now her product line has grown but remains true to their origins. This cruelty-free brand that uses certified organic ingredients and recyclable materials has products for men, baby, bath & body, hair, as well as wonderful cosmetics.

SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation and Shea Butter Luscious LipstickBeauty Info Zone was sent some products to test and we’ve become surprised and delighted with what we’ve found. Today we’re sharing with you SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation in three shades along with two different Shea Butter Luscious Lipsticks.

SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation is a light, silky, fluid formula that blends easily with fingertips or a makeup sponge to provide light to medium coverage with a natural finish. Shades stay true. No ashy look. Feels comfortable, almost undetectable on the skin. Formulated with natural ingredients and blended with moisturizing Shea Butter and antioxidant-rich Vitamins C & E to nourish and protect skin.

MARCIA’S FOUNDATION AND LIPSTICK

Shea Moisture Tea Rose Luscious Lipstick and Weightless Shea Serum Foundation in Porcelain

Shea Moisture Nectar Luscious Lipstick and Weightless Shea Serum Foundation in Porcelain

Even though I selected Shea Moisture’s light shade, Porcelain, I was still quite concerned about the color match. Shea Moisture is a wonderful line for Women of Color but I wasn’t so sure how they’d be with someone as pale as I am. To my delight, they hit it out of the ballpark. Upon applying Porcelain on my hand to picture swatch it seemed too dark and a little too yellow for me but the first time I applied it on my face I knew that perception was all wrong. Porcelain is a perfect match for those of us who wear the lightest or second lightest shade in a foundation.

SHEA MOISTURE Weightless Shea Serum Foundation in Porcelain

SHEA MOISTURE Weightless Shea Serum Foundation in Porcelain

Being a serum foundation makes this a great choice for warm weather. The foundation is totally weightless and blends beautifully into a seamless finish. This wears so well on me that I’m often surprised at the end of the day that my face still looks evenly toned yet not like I’m wearing foundation.

I have Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF40 and I’ve not only compared them but I’ve worn them both on the same day. Shea Moisture on one side, Bobbi Brown on the other side. Guess who wins? The $14.99 bottle of Shea Moisture looks better and lasts longer than the $65 Bobbi Brown. The two porcelain shades are almost identical with the Shea Moisture having better coverage and a small amount more tint to it. There’s no SPF in Shea Moisture but the difference is $50!! Ulta often has specials on Shea Moisture too. At the time I’m typing this they are 40% off a second SM product.

Shea Moisture Luscious Lipstick in Tea Rose

Shea Moisture Luscious Lipstick in Nectar

Shea Moisture Luscious Lipstick in Nectar is a perfect shade for me. So perfect in fact that I’m wearing it to my niece’s wedding. I still prefer a creamy lipstick in spite of the latest matte craze and Shea Moisture knows about creamy lipsticks. This contains Shea Butter as well as other emollients to keep lips soft and moisturized. It’s fragrance free (yea) as well as free of all the other bad things that we always mention. Most important is that I love the light to medium tone of this shade and the wear is great. Nectar is one of 10 shades that sell for just $9.99 (and those sales).

LISA’S FOUNDATION AND LIPSTICK

SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation and Shea Butter Luscious Lipstick

I think it’s a little easier for Marcia to find her color match in foundation – it’s always the lightest shade. For me, it’s a little more complicated  I go anywhere from light/medium to medium/dark, depending on where I am in my self tanning cycle.

SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation in Latte and Nude

SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation in Latte (left) and Nude (right)

The selection of shades is pretty incredible with this line – there are 20 of them, with lots of excellent shades for darker skin tones  I am sure you will be able to find your perfect shade in the range from Porcelain to Cocoa, with options for cool, warm, and neutral undertones. I tried two of the foundation shades, Nude (warm undertones) and Latte (neutral undertones).

I was taken aback at how little foundation is needed for excellent coverage. At first I put waaay too much on, not realizing how pigmented it was. This is a wonderful liquid foundation that can be layered for up to full coverage and lasts all day long. It’s also free of parabens, talc, gluten, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, and synthetic fragrance.

SheaMoisture Shea Butter Moisture Lipstick in Tea Rose

I think Marcia’s lipstick shade, Nectar, is very pretty, but I think my shade is even prettier! I have Tea Rose, which is a beautiful cool pink shade. I am in love with the shade and the moisturizing formula. I typically find I have to reapply the more hydrating lipsticks quite often, but this one has surprising lasting power.

Shea Moisture is a refreshingly affordable line that you can easily find at ULTA and at Target. Next time you are out shopping, be sure to take a look at the beautiful lipsticks and the excellent shade selection in the foundations.
