It is no secret that I love liquid lipsticks so when I saw that Bite Beauty came out with their own version, I was definitely intrigued. I did see several reviews of the product so coming into this, I knew it wasn’t the matte liquid lipstick that I am used to. Instead, the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipsticks are more similar to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks. Essentially, a cream lipstick in liquid form. I chose the shade Purée which is a beautiful burnt orange shade.
To start off, the square packaging is quite attractive. It is not only flat-lay friendly (#bloggerproblems) it really stands out from your standard tube. I also quite enjoy the long and tapered doe-foot applicator, it was really quite easy to get an even and precise distribution of the product. Continue reading
Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veil launched a few months ago and instantly was a product that intrigued me. The combination of a long-wearing liquid lipstick and glitter seemed like a natural choice for me. The shade range is all bold and beautiful and they can be layered over other lipstick making it very versatile. As you have probably already guessed, today’s Love for Lipstick post will be diving into the Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veil in the shade Thunderstruck. The shade Thunderstruck is described as a “champagne with pink and gold glimmer”. This seemed to be the most neutral shade in the lineup and therefore seemed like the one I could get the most use out of on a regular basis.
The Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veil comes in a tube that is both shorter and wider than her regular Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. The applicator is a bit different as well, instead of your standard doe-foot has a bit of a curve to it. I’ve found it to be very easy to use to get a nice, clean application. Continue reading
Hi guys! I recently picked up the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Haze duo when it was briefly available during a flash sale a few weeks ago. I’ve been dying to try a purplely/grey liquid lipstick so Kat Von D Haze II definitely seemed like it would fit the bill. Both shades in the set are gorgeous and by purchasing them in a set I saved a few dollars so it was a no-brainer when I placed my order. So, today’s makeup look was completely inspired by Kat Von D Haze II.
Hi guys! I’ve got another Love for Lipstick post for you today! We will be taking a closer look at the Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick in the shade Lover. I picked this beauty up when I went to the preview party prior to the opening of Sephora in Thunder Bay a few weeks ago. The Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick (wow that’s a mouthful!) is said to have the pigmentation of a liquid lipstick but the comfort of a gloss.
The formula itself is definitely whipped as the name suggests. It applies almost like a mousse and has a slightly thicker consistency compared to your standard liquid lipstick. It definitely is quite pigmented and only requires one coat of product.It kind of reminded me of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Between the formula and the doe-foot applicator it is quite easy to get a nice even application. Continue reading
Hi guys! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Love for Lipstick post so today I’ve got one featuring the Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Adorbs! I picked this beauty up last month during the Sephora Spring VIB Sale and I’ve been testing it out ever since. I really love testing out new liquid lipsticks as I’m always on a quest to find the best wear times. I chose the shade Adorbs as it’s so bright and looks so summery. Plus, I didn’t already have any bright liquid lipsticks, bonus!
The formula of Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint is a slightly thicker than I’m used to mousse-y formula. Application is really quite easy. Between the consistency of the formula, and the shape of the wand, I could easily get a nice clean, even application on the lips. The wand is a bit longer and less doe-footy than your typical liquid lipstick applicator. I thought this would make it harder to apply but this actually made it easier to get a precise application!

Hi guys! February was a pretty slow month for me makeup-wise. I didn’t wear much on weekends, I only purchased THREE items and I didn’t post much. The month of February I think I just felt pretty burnt out in general so I spent a lot of time relaxing and not doing much in my spare time. I’m trying to get back on track and begin to focus again as we dive into March though! So, although I didn’t purchase much, I still did want to share the three items that I did pick up and some first impressions with you! Continue reading
Hi guys! I managed to make my way into one of the many Sephora’s that I was probably in proximity to while I was away on my road trip. The Sephora that I stopped by was one that I’ve been to many times, the Minneapolis (“Minni”) location. Since being on the road for two weeks is quite costly, I limited myself to two lipsticks so I had to force myself to choose wisely. My focus seemed to be very liquid lipstick centred but I think that helped keep me from buying more than I did. So, let’s chat about what I picked!
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Liquid Lipstick in Heathers
I have wanted to try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks for quite some time now but I always get seem to get side-tracked. This time though, that was not going to happen! Since it is *almost* fall, I wanted to get something more on the vampy-side so I chose the shade Heathers. It’s a brownish-oxblood shade which is basically a combination of two of my favourite fall colours! I can’t wait to try out this formula and put it to the test in an upcoming Love for Lipstick post!
Kat Von D | Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita
It’s really no surprise that Kat Von D makes one of my favourite liquid lipsticks, I’ve raved about them in the past. With that said, I had to pick up another one! Lolita is one of her classic shades and surprisingly, it wasn’t yet mine! So, since it was in stock, I had to pick it up! This looks like a great every day shade. A rosy chestnut liquid lipstick? Yes please!

I also decided to compare Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita and Double Dare as when I swatched Lolita, it reminded me of Double Dare. They are very different though, yay! Double Dare is a touch pinker and brighter than Lolita. I’ve swatched them both below in case you were curious!

Well, that’s what I picked up when I stopped by Sephora in Minneapolis! If you missed out on my recent posts about my adventures you can find the Canadian leg of the trip here, and the American leg of the trip here!

Hi guys! This post is a day later than intended, I usually post on Wednesday’s, however due to unforeseen circumstances, I’ve been pre-occupied this week. I’m hoping Friday’s post will go up on-time but we will see how things progress. This is an unusual week.
So, today I thought it would be fun to round-up the liquid lipsticks in my collection. Liquid lipsticks are a very personal choice, everyone seems to have a different opinion on which they like. All of these opinions are based on my personal experience. What works for me, may be different for you.

Colourpop | Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks
The Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks seem to have the most mixed reviews I have ever seen online. I however, love the ones that I have. I do make sure I read reviews before I purchase them though. It seems to make a difference in which colours you purchase when it comes to formula. I own a pretty good variety of shades, you can see them all in my swatches below. I find that they are pigmented and very long-wearing. They can be a bit drying, but I always put lip balm on while I’m doing the rest of my makeup and let it soak in and then I blot off the excess before applying my lipstick. When I do this, I do not notice a drying sensation and if I do, its many hours after I’ve applied it. Continue reading
Hi guys! Colourpop had a sale for Cyber Monday in which everything was reduced by 20% for the day. I saw $4.80 Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and immediately jumped on that bandwagon. I was impressed with the two I had ordered in the fall so I took this opportunity to add a few more to my collection. I love that I can apply them and not worry about my lipstick partially going rogue throughout the day. Continue reading
