All Liquid Lips Are Not Created Equal

All Liquid Lips Are Not Created Equal

Hey everyone! As usual I hope all is well. Recently, I picked up the new Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick. So, I started thinking wow I really only wear like one shade of lipstick …. No really I have a few different liquid lipstick from a few different brands. Why not compare them? I mean I am a blogger that’s what I do!

I chose five different brands (same color sorta): Let’s grade these by application, pigment, feeling on lips, smell, does it smudge and how hard it is to take off?

First we have Lime Crime: 5/10
Color-Bloodmoon
Application-It’s pretty liquidy and patchy
Pigment-Very well pigmented, does stain lips (and hands and face and every other thing it touches)
Feeling-Has the typical dry tacky feeling
Smell- Smells good
Smudge? Yes
It is so hard to take off….IMG_2794

Jeffree Star: 4/10
Color-Androgyny
Application-It was ok to apply better than the lime crime
Pigment- Very pigmented
Feeling-Super dry on the lips
Smell-The smell was horrible
Smudge? Yes
Makeup wipe took it off ok.IMG_2795

Kat Von D: 7/10
Color: Lolita
Application- Applies smooth, not patchy, dries quickly
Pigment- Very good pigment
Feeling- Felt dry but not as bad as the Lime Crime or Jeffree Star.
Smell- No smell
Smudge? Not really
Makeup wipe works!IMG_2796

Nxy Lingerie: 9/10
Color- Lipli
Application- Its creamy, very smooth and STAYS put
Pigment- Is really good
Feeling- Not tacky at all
Smell- No smell
Smudge? Nope
Makeup wipe for the win. IMG_2797

Wet n Wild Catsuit: 8/10
Color- Rebel Rose
Application- Smooth, applies well
Pigment: Maybe a little lighter than the rest but still good
Feeling- Felt like nothing
Smell- Once again no real smell
Smudge? None
Makeup takes it all off!IMG_2798

You might be thinking I’m really harsh with my ratings, but honestly I’m not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks. So, it does take a lot to impress me.

Shout out to doing this in all one day! My lips are so sore and swollen from all the removal! YIKES…

Favorites Lip Products Of The Moment:

Favorites Lip Products Of The Moment:

Hey everyone! I’ve been super into lipsticks as of recent. So, I thought it would be fun to give you a list of some of my favorites:

For starters my favorite lip balm would have to L’Occitane Ultra Soft Balm: it leaves my lips soft and not greasy! lip2

My favorite liquid lip is the NYX Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt: it definitely has the drying affect but not the weird crumble feeling. lip4

One of my top two favorite lipsticks is the Dior Addict Lipstick in Not Shy: it’s so creamy and smooth. The pigment is out of this world.lip5

My second top favorite would be the Benefit Lipstick in Frisky Business: it’s not as smooth as my Dior one but the color is beautiful! lip3

I’m not a huge fan of lip gloss so that’s why I decided why even add one in to my favorites if I don’t have one. So, if you have questions or concerns you can leave them in the comments below! Lets chat!!

Question of the day- Whats your favorite lipstick?

My Skin Care Routine

Okay ladies and gents! Today we are going to be talking about skin care (again)… one of the most bitter-sweet topics to me. I once had beautiful clear skin (like everyone in my family) until around 15, then everything went south. In a previous post, my review of the acne treatments to be exact I mentioned I have tried a million and one things. Nothing was really working until I started this routine about a year ago! I also should mention I went to a dermatologist for a long time, and a few of the products I’m going to mention is what the Doc prescribed.

I’m a firm believer in a set routine so lets begin:

Morning Routine: (Easy Peasy)
Wash: Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask   Gets rid of all the dirt and oils
Moisturizer: Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion Makes my skin soft not greasyFacewashLotion

Night Time Routine: (this is where things get a little crazy)
Wash: Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask or Dove Sensitive bar soap.
Depending on how dirty I feel my face is… at night I use my Mia 2. I really could not live without my Clarisonic it gives me such a deep clean.
Toner: L’occitane Lotion Divine  Doesn’t dry my skin out!
Moisturize: Cetaphil Mositurizing Lotion
Lip Balm: L’occitane Soft Balm  mia 2lotion divinebalm

Makeup Remover: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.  Doesn’t leave a sticky feeling.micellar water.JPG
If I have a pimple/break out I will use my Mario Badescu Drying Lotion or my acne cover ups!mario bb
I hope you all can take something away from this! If anyone would like to know about the masks or other special treatments just ask, I’ll make a post.

Question of the day- What are your skin care routines like?
