Makeup Wars and lipstick = perfect combinations

samplesaffiliate links

Makeup Wars is always a fun time because you get to see what many bloggers enjoy in one topic. When you mention lipstick or liquid lipstick or lip gloss to a blogger you get some happy women. I’m sharing some of my recent acquisitions to see if there are colors or brands that will make your lips and heart go pitter patter.

Models Own, PUR Cosmetics, Jane Iredale

Not to play favorites but it’s typical to like some colors and formulas better than others and one that really has my attention is Jane Iredale PlayOn Lip Crayon in Hot. I love easy and to me lip crayons are easy personified.

Jane Iredale PlayOn Lip Crayon in Hot

Jane Iredale PlayOn Lip Crayons are available in 7 shades. They are so creamy and just glide on. There’s no fragrance or scent to these and they are cruelty free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, and oil-free. I don’t normally choose a red lip but Hot can be applied with different intensities to make it look more of a pinky red.

These are moisturizing, nourished with Vitamin E, and make my lips feel comfortable. I can add a gloss over it for more fun. I may be showcasing this in summer but it’s going to be an all year round lippie for me.

Next up PUR Cosmetics has two formulas I’ve worn this summer: Velvet Matte and Chrome Glaze. They are as different as night and day but each has its special attributes.

PUR Cosmetics Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick and Chrome Glaze Lip Gloss

PUR Cosmetics Velvet Matte has a mousse like texture so it’s not as drying as I find many matte lipsticks to be. While it’s definitely a matte on my lips it feels very pliable and my lips don’t shrivel up. I have this in Obsessed which is considered a soft pink, it’s not a pastel though. Any time I wear a liquid matte I have to take my time to apply my lips since it’s not slapdash. A liner helps keep it in place so I don’t make mistakes.

PUR Cosmetics also has Chrome Glaze High Shine Lip Glosses and this is more my style. I have this in Heartbreaker and it’s an amazing shade for me. I can wear this gel formula alone or even better apply it over my Velvet Matte lip for shiny beauty.

PUR Cosmetics Chrome Glaze in Heartbreaker

PUR describes Heartbreaker as “perfect pink” and it is the perfect pink for me. Not too bright, not too pale, just right! It’s a longer lasting gloss formula but like all glosses it’s going to have to be reapplied.

PUR Cosmetics Obsessed Velvet Matte and Heartbreaker Chrome Glaze

I don’t know how long PUR’s special lasts but using the code LIPSTICK can get you 3 lip products for $20 so that’s a deal you want to hop on.

As you may know ULTA has enhanced their stores and website with some amazing new brands. One of those brands is Model’s Own. This British brand has stormed the US with some innovative products. The prices are great so it’s a fun brand to explore.

Models Own LIX Matte Liquid Lipstick in Strawberry Mojito and Raspberry Mojito

Model’s Own LIX Matte Liquid Lipstick comes in 6 shades for only $7.99 each. If you love matte you’ll love Model’s Own. It’s the mattest of any matte I’ve ever tried. It has a minty fragrance to it that I find refreshing but there is a tingle with it that you’ll notice for a few minutes. Make sure your lips are exfoliated before wearing LIX since something this matte is going to show everything. The smoother your lips are, the better Models Own LIX will apply.

Models Own LIX Matte Liquid Lipstick in Strawberry Mojito and Raspberry Mojito

I love the packaging of these. It surely attracts attention. They also have some heft to them. Strawberry Mojito is a bright red on me with orange undertones, I mostly see the red once on. Raspberry Mojito is a dark berry on my lips though it swatches with more purple. LIX are very intense on me. You have to really like a bold matte lip to appreciate these two shades.

I’m going to put a plug in for Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Nourishing Lipsticks that I just reviewed since these are the lipsticks I’m getting a lot of use out of this summer. Plus I have a giveaway going on so you could win some!

REALHER- A natural alternative to standard liquid lipsticks

Liquid lip products are immensely popular now as I’m sure you all know.  I was very pleased to get this certified cruelty free and paraben free REALHER matte liquid lipstick to try along with an Expert Advice lip liner. Both products have natural ingredients and are infused with shea butter, jojoba seed oil and hyaluronic acid. The company offers eyeshadows, lipsticks, glosses and brushes too. I love the promise which is “RealHer was founded on the idea that, with each application, it can help to inspire the wearer: to be herself, to love herself, to be powerful, to rule the world. It doesn’t ask us to be perfect, to be a mother, to be a CEO, to be the perfect beautiful doll, but rather invites us to continue being ourselves, and that which defines us as an individual—and it’s liberating.” What’s even nicer is the birth of the daughter of the company’s founder influenced him to develop this brand with her in mind.   And- get this- the company donates 20% of all proceeds to charity.  

Marcia sent me I Am Loved lip liner and I Deserve The Best matte liquid lipstick that she’d received in a Boxycharm sub box. The website describes I Am Loved as a plum color and I think that description is right on the money. It glides onto your lips smoothly without any skipping. The color is very pigmented and can easily be worn as an all over lip color without an accompanying gloss or lipstick. It goes perfectly with I Deserve The Best lipstick. The website describes the color as a deep mauve. In the container the color looks more like a medium toned brownish pink. It looked that way when I first applied it to my lips. In fact, the liner was darker than the lip color upon initial application  REALHER recommends you apply the lipstick to bare lips with the wand. Allow up to 5 minutes for it to dry to its matte finish and avoid oily foods.

I have pretty dry lips so after application, I was able to see the product settle into some lip lines. Even after lining my lips with the pencil, I found it hard to ‘color within my lip shape’. I had better success when I used a lip brush and smoothed the color that way, waited the requisite 5 minutes and the product did become matte but it also became sticky. I felt it particularly if I rubbed my lips together which I tend to do. If you don’t have this habit, you won’t notice the stickiness at all.

The color seemed to darken on me to a deep mauve (just as the website stated) and matched the liner perfectly. I did avoid oily foods for lunch and there was no transfer onto my smoothie cup.

REALHER keeps their promises.  –  Phyllis

When is a matte lipstick not really a matte? When it’s The Only 1 Matte by Rimmel

Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte Lipstick

Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte Lipstick

Earlier today I reviewed the Magnif’Eyes Shadow Palettes but what’s your face without a beautiful lipstick? You’ll want one to wear with your gorgeous eyeshadows and Rimmel London has so many to choose from. I was sent a variety of their THE ONLY 1 MATTE LIPSTICKS and these will pair perfectly with their eyeshadow palettes.

Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte Lipstick

Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte Lipstick

These beauties are housed in a bright red slanted tube so they won’t get lost when digging through your purse for them. There are 10 shades available altogether so you’re going to want to go to Walgreen, CVS, Rite Aid, Target, and other stores to find them. At $6.97 (Walmart) to $7.99 (and often sales) you may not be able to resist a few.

I’m not a big fan of matte lipstick but I do wear them on occasion and Rimmel’s The Only 1 Matte Lipsticks have full pretty tones that don’t dry my lips out if I’ve exfoliated them first. These are described as a velvet matte and they do have good staying power. They have a candy fragrance that takes about 20 minutes before I stop noticing it. I’m sure most people won’t be as sensitive to the fragrance as I am.

Now onto sharing!

#200  SALUTE is the pinkest of the group I have, it’s a true pink that is summer ready.

#610 HIGH FLYER  is a rose shade, softer than red. I can picture this being the most popular.

#700 TRENDSETTER is one I’d describe as a mauve nude. There’s a touch of brown to it but it’s got more mauve tones to keep it more feminine.

SPELA Paint & Play is here to save the day

SPELA Paint & Play

SPELA Paint & Play

Is there anything better than a new lipstick? Makeup lovers throughout the world choose a lipstick as their most wanted product time and again. This year we’ve seen Liquid Lipsticks take over from the traditional lipstick and of those liquid lipsticks it’s the matte lip that rules. Whether you are a fan of matte lipsticks or not, you can’t avoid them so you might as well join them. One such brand is a new one, SPELA COSMETICS.                          sample

SPELA Cosmetics Girl's Girl set

SPELA Cosmetics Girl’s Girl set

SPELA Cosmetics is a small brand so far. They’ve created 8 Paint & Play Liquid Lipsticks that sell for $18 each or you can purchase one of 4 duos for $30. The philosophy of SPELA is that they wanted to create vegan, cruelty-free lipsticks that go beyond the certification of US standards and use E.U. Compliance as their guideline. In Europe there are 1300 banned ingredients for cosmetics while the US only has 11. We can be assured by SPELA that their lipsticks are E.U. Compliant while being made in the US.

SPELA Spin and Flirt Liquid Lipsticks

SPELA Spin and Flirt Liquid Lipsticks

I was sent the GIRL’S GIRL set that has the pinks of their line: Spin and Flirt. There are 3 more sets, Naughty but Nice (red and nude), Social Butterfly (classic red and plum), and Yogi (neutrals in a dark clay like shade and a pale gray-lavender.). These are all sold as singles too so you can find your own favorites.

SPELA holiday duos

What I like best about these SPELA lipsticks is that they are totally weightless on my lips. There is no drying out or cracking on my lips. Even when I’ve rushed and didn’t prep my lips they were always comfortable and felt like I didn’t have anything on my lips.

Top to Bottom: Asana, Flirt, Playa, Spa Day, Tinder, Happy Hour.

In the GIRL’S GIRL set are two pinks that are very different from each other. SPIN is a cool bright but dark pink. These liquid lipsticks are one coat wonders though I’ve filled in with a second coat if necessary. SPIN turns slightly fuchsia on me so to wear it I have to use a light coat. I’ll go over it with a clean lipbrush to make sure it’s even. It lasts at least 5 hours if I don’t eat anything that’s oily. It leaves behind a nice stain when it wears away.

Closer to the colors I wear on a daily basis is FLIRT which is a pale rose shade. At first when applied it looked very nude on me but once it started to dry I saw the warm pinkness it holds.

Spela Flirt

Flirt will last on me a little less time than Spin does. I made chili for dinner recently and it didn’t last through that. When it fades though it is an even fade that doesn’t make my lips look bad. It’s easy to reapply after without a problem.

If you are ready to go beyond the typical brands I believe that SPELA Cosmetics Paint & Play Matte Liquid Lipsticks are a wonderful choice. They are paraben and sulfate-free, vegan and cruelty-free. They are enriched with Vitamin C and E which not only have antioxidant protection but prevent the dry lips you associate with a matte lipsticks. I hope you’ll take a chance so you can find some lipsticks that bring in the play in your day.  —  Marcia

Pixi’s Perfect for under the tree, in your stocking, and looking pretty

Pixi Beauty

Pixi Beauty

PIXI BEAUTY has something for everyone no matter what time of year it is. I was sent several of their holiday specials along with pretty Pixi products that work perfectly for a party look. The best news is that it’s not too late to order from Pixibeauty.com and there’s time to go to Target to find some Pixi. It’s a winning situation.

PALETTE ROSETTE will make you one popular person if you gift this. But make sure you buy one for yourself.

Pixi by Petra Palette Rosette

This face palette has it all. 11 shades for eyes and 3 for face. Every shade is beautiful and will help you look radiant.

Pixi Rosette Palette cheeks

For your cheeks you’ll find a subtle pink all over Glow that rivals the more expensive ones I bought from other brands. There’s a rosy cheek Blush that seems universal to me. Last is the enhancing Contour that can be used a bronzer or contour shade. But that’s not all …

Pixi Rosette Palette eyes

Pixi Rosette Palette eyes

For your eyes are 3 different highlight shades: peach, cream and white. I’ve used the peach on my lid too but Pixi also made sure that there were 2 lid shades, one for day and one for night. I don’t necessarily believe in rules so I give you permission to use these interchangeably. There are 3 eye contour shades in the brown family. There’s a dark brown matte and two satin shades that are tones of taupe (forget my very dark picture). Last they didn’t forget eyebrows since there are 3 shades for that. I love Pixi’s eyebrow powders and I like to mix shades so this is perfectamundo IMO.

Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust Favorites and Endless Silky Eye Pen

Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust Favorites and Endless Silky Eye Pen

FAIRY DUST FAVORITES contains 5 of Pixi’s favorite loose pigment shades. I used to live for pigments but I had pretty much stopped until I discovered Pixi’s. These don’t get all over. I’m not a glittery mess with these. Of course I use an eyeshadow primer but I always have – these just love eyes. They are a satin finish.

Pixi Fairy Dust Favorites

This is a bargain at only $12 for these 5. I have Metallic Warmth and there’s also a Matte Classic.

The shades are Sheer Peach Glow, Sunkissed Amber, Ruby Sheen, True Bronze, and Black Pearl. Just picture Ruby Sheen in the center of your lips to add dimension! Ooh la la.

ENDLESS SILKY PENS have won beauty awards galore since they are the right price, the right colors, and they glide on your eyes like no other. pixi-endless-silky-eye-pen

Opal Overcoat is the shade sent for the holidays. On me it has a very gold cast but it’s not garish, it’s just brightening.

We can not forget lips! Pixi has an amazing formula in their Mattelustre lipsticks. They fit in with the trend of matte but with a lustre that makes the lipstick comfortable and not drying. There are 11 shades of Mattelustre Lipsticks but there should be no surprise that Classic Red is the featured shade. Classic Red is a cool blue red, a very merry shade.

So what’s your pleasure? Face, eyes, lips? Whatever you choose it’s going to become a favorite. Whoever might receive these will be thrilled and you’ll become their favorite gift giver. Christmas is going to be a lot more merry with Pixi.  —  Marcia

Add Hard Candy Metallic Mousse to your holiday shopping list

Hard Candy Metallic Mousse

Hard Candy Metallic Mousse

It’s never fun shopping for groceries so you need to add in a special treat for yourself for the holidays. Why go to Walmart without stopping at the Hard Candy display? They are the sole distributor of this fun, inexpensive line. You need something special to get you through the cleaning and cooking of Thanksgiving and Christmas and Hard Candy Metallic Mousse Matte Metallic Lip Color is just the thing.                                                       press sample

I have to first talk about the packaging because it’s so darned cute. These Metallic Mousse liquid lipcolors come in the cutest metallic tin to match the color within. The insert that holds the lipstick can be removed to give you a case that holds all sorts of small items so it will come in handy.

The shape of the tube is unlike any I have. It’s flattened out and expensive looking.

The wand too is flattened and fits lips nicely. It’s comfortable to use.

Best of all is the trendiness you’ll get for just $6. Lips these days are all about matte liquid lipsticks and the hottest shades are metallic. These are available in 6 shades: Sandstorm Nude, Guilded Cocoa, Penny Talk, Queen of Hearts, Smoke & Mirrors, Sweet as Honey, and Truffle.

Hard Candy Metallic Mousse in Penny Talk and Truffle

Penny Talk is a bright copper penny shade while Smoke & Mirrors is a tad deceiving since it’s a purple with a chocolate undertone. For my cool toned skin Smoke & Mirrors is a better choice but both are very unique and beautiful.  I apply Smoke & Mirrors on my bottom lip and then smack my lips together to end up with a great comfortable lip color. They aren’t drying on my lips and last a good amount of time.

Not only will these be a treat for you but they will make an absolutely terrific stocking stuffer. The price is right, the lip color is on trend, and the packaging is going to make the recipient squeal. Have fun at Walmart and don’t forget that the best candy is Hard Candy.  —  Marcia

Are you ready for Covergirl’s Katy Perry collection, Katy Kat?

Summer 2016 brings us a Covergirl collection that is unlike any other. Together with Katy Perry they are developing a line that combines Katy’s creativity and with their beauty expertise. Covergirl has been shining for the past year and the Katy Kat Collection is one-of-a-kind.

Covergirl - be a Katy Kat

Covergirl – be a Katy Kat

Katy Perry has been a superstar for Covergirl for a long time so it’s fun to see what she’s experimented with to bring her own touch to a normally staid line. It starts with the Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks, includes products that she’s helped spruce up, and ends with a new mascara. With her pizzazz there’s a lot more to be excited about with Covergirl. This week Covergirl is Buy 2 Get 1 Free at Ulta which you’ll want to take advantage of with all these beauties.

*pr samples

Let’s start with her line of Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks. There are 11 shades that cover the gamut of colors that you’d love. These lipsticks are a demi-matte finish so they don’t look drying, instead they have the qualities of matte (being longer lasting and trendy) but still enough softness that they are moisturizing. I love the names of these lipsticks (Kitty Purry, Pink Paws, Cat Call, and more). I was sent the least Marcia color but the most Katy color: Perry Panther.

I’m not exactly a black lipstick wearer but I now know enough to purchase a shade like Katy Purry for $6.99 – 8.99. It isn’t a harsh matte, it has a soft fragrance, and it applies easily. The lipsticks are all moisturizing and great shades that you can wear with comfort. The packaging is new and doesn’t look like a drugstore product at all.

The next product developed for Katy Kat is their newest mascara which comes in both black and Perry Blue. KATY KAT EYE MASCARA is due soon and will be $6.99-$8.99 depending where you find it. This is a long wear mascara although it’s not considered to be waterproof. Covergirl says this has 10x the volume thanks to a helix shaped twisted wire brush. The brush’s bristles aren’t too long in order to make it easier to comb through and then pull your lashes up and out. Concentrate this on your outer lashes to get that cat eye look that Katy is famous for.

Katy says it best on the back of the package:

Next up is the wonderful Liquilineblast eyeliner pencil which has been around for a while but when you take this newer shade of Blue Boom and put it with Katy Kat Perry Blue Mascara you’ve got a winning combination. Liquilineblast lasts about 8 hours but only on my top lashline. I smudged it on the bottom and it oversmudged and didn’t last that long for me. I advise using a very sharp sharpener with these, the best you have, so you don’t waste this unique shade.

At Ulta you’ll find a new foundation called Ready Set Gorgeous.This is available in 12 shades and I was sent 3 to test: 115 Buff Beige, 205 Natural Beige, and 210 Medium Beige.

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Oil Free Foundation

Even though these are all darker than I normally wear I was still impressed enough with the oil-free finish and how easy it was to blend on my face. I added a little bit of my Manic Panic Dreamtone White Foundation to lighten 115 and it worked beautifully.

Now that you have your Katy Kat eyes and lips plus a new foundation you need their Tru Blend Blush and Bronzer – really you do!

Covergirl Tru Blend Blush and Bronzer

Covergirl Tru Blend Blush and Bronzer

Tru Blend Blush is available in three swirly shades: Light Rose, Medium Rose, and Deep Mauve. I was sent Medium Rose and it’s just beautiful. I can apply it with a feathery brush to create a light pink or use my regular blush brush for a deeper pink. Whichever I’ve done has been perfect.

  • Ultra blendable
  • Blends instantly – no blush lines
  • Baked minerals refined into a powder formula
  • Oil-free & suitable for sensitive skin

    Tru Blend Bronzer is just as easy to wear as the blush. Both the blush and the bronzer are baked and the pigmentation is wonderful. There’s no shimmer but there’s a satiny finish that gives me some glow. What I love about this is that there’s no orange at all – just a beautiful golden bronze that I can lightly use to perk up my ghostly skin.

    One last Covergirl product that I think you should definitely be picking up is their Trunaked Nudes eyeshadow palette. I’ve previously reviewed this and continue to wear it often. It is such a great basic palette to have, one you could count on for every occasion.

    With the holiday weekend coming up it’s always fun to have a few new cosmetic items and Covergirl won’t break the bank. They are on trend with quality formulas and fun. Katy Perry fun!  —  Marcia
