e.l.f. (Eyes Lips Face) Makeup Palettes and Kits

e.l.f. cosmetics, short for Eyes Lips Face, are one of the great makeup values out there, and I tend to recommend them for those who are seeking good budget cosmetics. The company focuses on affordable makeup, surprisingly affordable actually, and they carry a full line that includes some really nice makeup palettes.  If you want […] e.l.f.

Hourglass Canvas, Cosmic, Horizon Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Glosses Review & Swatches

Canvas Hourglass Canvas Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, which adhered decently but there was slight streaking along the edges (and if I pressed my lips together, I could see where I did so) with slight product that sank into my lip lines. It had a moderate shine and was comfortable to wear, and the settling didn’t worsen over time. The texture was l...

Lancome Caprice & Idole L’Absolu Rouges Reviews & Swatches

Caprice (132) Lancome Caprice (132) L’Absolu Rouge ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a natural sheen. There was very, very fine pearl strewn throughout that gave it a smoother, more luminous finish but didn’t look shimmery to the eye. The consistency was smooth, thin, and lightweight but not at all clingy nor did it emphasize my lip texture–it actually made my lips look a bit smoother. It wore well for five and a half hours, left a reddish stain, an...

Fenty Beauty Tropic Tantrum, Alpha Doll, Purpsicle Poutsicle Juicy Satin Lipsticks Review & Swatches

Tropic Tantrum Fenty Beauty Tropic Tantrum Poutsicle Juicy Satin Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and a little thicker compared to most shades in the range, which seemed to translate into a slightly creamier, more emollient quality to the product as well. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in one layer, but there was a bit of streaking along the edges of my lips and slight prod...

It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips without tugging. The texture was lightweight, balm-like without being overly slippery, and was comfortable to wear. It had a natural sheen that faded away after two to three hours, but it never looked fully matte. The color stayed...

It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging. The texture was velvety, lightweight, and creamy enough to be comfortable to apply and to wear. There was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines but not enough that it was visible from a normal viewing distance. this shade...

MAC x Disney Aladdin #1 Wish Crystal Glaze Gloss Reviews & Swatches

#1 Wish MAC #1 Wish Crystal Glaze Gloss ($24.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a translucent gloss with flecks of pink and peach shimmer–and it was designed to be clear. It’s a thicker, more balm-like gloss with a high-shine finish, barely-there pearl, and a nice, comfortable feel on lips. The shimmer was very fine, so while it was “sheer” in amount, it was barely-there in impact (which may or may not be your cup of tea!). For those who like a plusher gloss but don’t want tackiness, this is in that ...

Fenty Beauty Motorboat & Go Deep Poutsicle Juicy Satin Lipsticks Review & Swatches

Motorboat Fenty Beauty Motorboat Poutsicle Juicy Satin Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, medium sky blue with cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation but had too much slip–the color just did not apply evenly, had visible streaks along the edges, and pulled into my lip lines (from beginning to the end). It was comfortable to wear, but it was unflattering on and worsened over the four hours it lasted for, though it was hydrating at least! The...

Best & Worst Bite Beauty Road Trip with Bite Amuse Bouche Lipsticks

Here’s a look back at how well the newest lipstick shades from Bite Beauty Road Trip with Bite Collection performed! They were consistent with past releases and the Amuse Bouche Lipstick formula; they were pigmented, long-wearing, and comfortable to wear. I do feel like Bite has tread a lot of this ground in the past (both in previous, limited edition releases as well as in their current line-up), so those with larger stashes of Amuse Bouches may want to check for overlap. ...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Jewels on Jewels MAC Jewels on Jewels Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a pearl finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied somewhat evenly to my lips, but from a normal viewing distance, it didn’t look quite as uneven as I know it actually was. The gloss had a smooth, moderately tacky consistency that was comfortable to wear, as it felt plush rather than heavy. It lasted well for four hours and was moisturizing while worn. Top ...

The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, while the texture was lightly creamy, emollient without being slippery, and denser in the tube but not to the point where it dragged or tugged on my lips during application. The color applied evenly but had a tendency to separate along my deeper lip lines. It stayed on well for four hours and was light...

The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightweight, slightly thinner and not quite as emollient (or as dense) compared to most Amuse Bouche shades. I felt like I could see my natural lip color come through, whereas with most Amuse Bouches, they’re...

It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips.

Los Angeles Bite Beauty Los Angeles Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, rosy beige with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. Alternatively, it could be categorized as a light, rosy brown, but I think it’s just light and rosy enough to be a little more beige than brown (if I had to pick a color family). It was richly pigmented with a lightweight, creamy texture that had a touch of tackiness initially (but seemed to keep the product in place better) that glided acr...

It had medium to semi-opaque coverage in one layer, which went on fairly evenly but could have applied better.

I didn’t notice the texture during application or while worn, though if I pressed my lips together firmly...

Sephora Dare to Be & Rise Above Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Dare to Be (28) Sephora Dare to Be (28) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light, bubblegum pink with cool, bluish undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had medium to semi-opaque color coverage that didn’t build up well due to the more emollient consistency that became quite slippery when built up. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but I found that this shade had enough slip that it did sink into my lip lines more noticeably. It lasted...

Surge Tom Ford Beauty Surge Lip Spark ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deeper gold with larger, chunkier flecks of glitter paired with a warmer, more brown base. It had more semi-opaque coverage when I swatched it, but on my lips, it seemed more semi-sheer to medium in coverage. The texture was sparkly; I could feel the edges of the glitter as I applied the lipstick and if I pressed my lips together. This shade seemed to have the largest particles, and it also applied the worst in the range w...

Slay (18) Sephora Slay (18) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. The color coverage was semi-opaque in one layer, but the formula didn’t lend itself to being buildable as it felt too slick when I did so. The texture was creamy, lightweight, and emollient, and it seemed to show in how this one looked on my lips–sank into some of my lip lines, caught on lip texture, and didn’t go on as evenly as it could have. The lipstick wore wel...

It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied smoothly and didn’t sit in my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightl...
