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...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Rajah & Whole New World Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

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.

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. ...

"I don’t even walk my dog without putting my lipstick on."

The geriatric possessive appears in "Vanity Is Not a Deadly Sin. It’s One of Life’s Last Vital Signs/For these senior citizens, keeping up appearances is simply part of good health" (NYT).The NYT is talking up older women who care about fashion and makeup and looking good, but the quoted woman had that geriatric tic that we were talking about the other day — here — of saying "my" where a younger adult would not use a possessive. It's idiomatic to say "I don’t even walk the dog without putting on...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Friend Like Me & Princess Incognito Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Friend Like Me MAC Friend Like Me Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with neutral undertones and a cream finish. 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.

MAC Aladdin Lipstick Review & Swatches

Princess Incognito and Rajah are two of the four limited edition MAC Lipstick shades that launched with Disney Aladdin Collection by MAC. Surprisingly much of the MAC Aladdin Collection is still in stock and readily available for purchase. I got early access to purchase the few pieces I got thanks to the MAC Lover Loyalty Program but I probably could have just waited as nothing really sold out. One of the reasons this may be is because the beauty bubble has broken and we’re not tossing our mone...

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. The texture was lightweight, emollient without being heavy or slippery on my lips during wear, and was comfortable to wear. I didn’t notice the texture during application or while worn, though if I pressed my lips together firmly...

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...

These 25 Red Lipsticks Will Make You Feel Like a Frickin' Bombshell

The same way a little black dress is essential in your closet, a red lipstick is a vital component of your makeup collection. It's the perfect hue for taking your look to the next level, whether you pair it with a cat eye and full face of foundation or simply swipe on the shade and wear it alone. If you're especially into makeup, we recommend owning more than one hue. Cherry reds are ideal for when you are feeling retro and want to emulate your favorite pinup girl, while dark crimsons are the se...

Tarte Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick Might Convince Me I Like Matte Liquid Lipsitck

Tarte Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick ($15) is a new liquid lipstick formula that launched with the Tarte Sugar Rush Collection in four shades. I’m not a big fan of matte, long-wearing lipsticks as we all know since I tell you this daily and I’m starting to sound like a broken record. But from time to time a formula will come out and make me change my mind. I have to admit that formula might be Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick! It’s lightweight, non-drying, and fairly priced. And the Tart...

I’m not a big, big fan of the Slim Velvet Lip Color formula since I don’t like mattes but some of the shades that launched with Spring 2019 Collection were so pretty I couldn’t resist grabbing a shade or two especially #Gotta Sing that’s a bright, juicy tangerine!

Tom Ford Surge & Thrust Lip Sparks Reviews & Swatches

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...

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color Review & Swatches

I picked up a few shades of the new Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color Lipstick ($3.99) that launched a several weeks ago on the brand’s website. At $3.99 each these seemed like a good pick up as the creamy, lightweight formula that Wet n Wild promised sounded like something I’d love. Not to mention they tempted me with a creamy texture that had hydrating ingredients like Murumuru Seed Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Argan Oil, and Macadamia Oil. As someone with drier lips they sounded great! Th...

Sephora Slay, CEO, Girl to Know Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

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...
