Love for Lipstick: Too Faced Melted Matte

Too Faced Melted Matte Lady Balls.jpg

Hi guys! I hauled some new lipsticks a few weeks ago in my last Love for Lipstick post so today I’m ready to share my first review! The Too Faced Melted Matte lipsticks are a new line that I’ve been dying to try so it is no surprise I am reviewing this one first. I love the packaging (it’s flat which makes them a dream to photograph) and the fact that they are long-wearing mattes! I chose the shade Lady Balls for two reasons… the first being that I don’t currently have a true red liquid lipstick and the second being the name. I think its hysterical… What am I wearing on my lips you ask? Lady Balls. Love it.

Too Faced Lady Balls Wear Time

1. 8:00 am: freshly applied 2. 12:30 pm: after eating lunch 3. 6:00 pm: final check-in (before eating dinner, but it did actually survive dinner too)

The wear time of this lipstick is pretty incredible. It survived eating a messy sandwich at lunch which was the true test. It’s a bit faded but you can rub your lips around to re-distribute the pigment so it never looks patchy. As of right now I have been wearing it for 12 hours. Incredible. Continue reading

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Haul

Urban Decay-Bang-Streak-Bittersweet-Native1

Hi guys! If you didn’t already know, Urban Decay is discontinuing all of their current Revolution Lipsticks in anticipation of their new Vice Lipsticks. I’ve mentioned it a few times since I started the blog, but the Revolution Lipsticks are up there with my all-time favourite formulas. While I’m super sad to see them go, and super hopeful that the new formula will be just as good, if not better, I am happy to report that they put their entire Revolution line on sale! Sephora (Canada) is all sold out of the Revolution Lipsticks online as far as I can tell but Urban Decay still has a decent selection. I’m not adding this as part of my Love for Lipstick Series since these are discontinued, but, I did want to share with you what I chose…

Love for Lipstick: Essence Lip Products

Hi guys! I’m back with another post for my Love for Lipstick Series! For this series, I am hauling, reviewing and comparing various lipsticks from across the board. This is all in an effort of expanding my horizons and trying different brands.

Today, I’m looking at Essence which is a brand I hadn’t previously tried. But since it is the Canadian Beauty Blogger‘s Featured Brand, I thought I would grab some lip products and try them out. It’s a very, very inexpensive brand which, if you’re Canadian, you can find at Shopper’s Drug Mart! I’m not sure which stores sell it in other countries.

Hi guys! I’m back with another post for my Love for Lipstick Series and today I am going to review the Marc Jacobs Beauty “Le Marc Créme Lipstick” in the shade Je T’Aime that I hauled when I started this series. This was a line that I really wanted to try as I’ve been impressed with various reviews and swatches that I have seen online.

So, like my previous Love For Lipstick post, I am going to take you through a work day of wearing this lipstick so that we can talk about the wear time.

Love for Lipstick: NARS vs. Bite Beauty

P1020442.jpg

Hi guys! As you may already know, I started up my new Love for Lipstick Series. In case you missed it, you can find the my “round one” haul here! So today I wanted to do a comparison post and take a look at two of the matte lip pencils that I hauled. The NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon. I thought this was a good place to start as they are both high end matte lip pencils. So for this post you’re going to go on a journey with me through two normal work days and we will see how each product held up! Neither product was touched up at all throughout the day. Continue reading

Love for Lipstick: Round One

P1020335.jpg

Hi guys! One of my goals this year is to try different lip products ranging from drugstore to high end. I tend to go for the same lipstick lines such as the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks and the Colourpop Lippie Stix (to name a few). While I still love them dearly, I also want to switch it up and see what else is out there.

I was just causally browsing the Sephora website and they had a “Lip Boldly” feature on the front page that caught my eye. One thing led to another and I added quite a few to my loves list that I wanted to eventually try. I’m going to continue to order a few in every once and awhile so this is the first batch. I’m also going to pick up lipsticks from the drugstore as well throughout the year. My plan is to eventually do a big collective comparison closer to the end of the year! For now, this Love for Lipstick series will primarily be hauls, but will eventually include mini comparisons.

So, for round one, this is what I picked up!
