A couple of weeks ago I bought some (*cough* a lot *cough*) makeup with my friends, I love and use all of the products I bought. We spent over $150 (HALP). *DISCLAIMER* I love makeup not to cover up blemishes but to show off art and talent. The brands that we bought from were Colourpop, Jeffree Star and Makeup Revolution.
"Virginity" velour liquid lip Jeffree Star:
Light pastel purple, pink colour. Very creamy and not drying at all, however it easily smudges and it can get a lot of excess coming of it. Makes your teeth look a little yellow but since it is a purple lipstick it would do that. But still a gorgeous colour.
"Nude Beach" velour liquid lip Jeffree Star:
Light orange, yellow colour. Bit streaky, creamy and very lightweight, it easily smudges and can get balls of lipstick coming off it. Makes your teeth look a bit yellow (not sure why). But still a nice lipstick.
"LAX" ultra matte liquid lip Colourpop:
Gorgeous deep, vampy red liquid lipstick. Very drying and stiff applicator, however it still looks great on the lips. Great affordable price and just a really lovely lipstick.
"Embellish" ultra matte liquid lip Colourpop:
Very dark brown, almost black, dupe for Jeffree Star's Dominatrix velour liquid lipstick. If you make a mistake it is very visible. Very drying lipstick, and cracks when on your lips but still a very trendy and nice lipstick for a great price.
"Stole The Show" highlighter Colourpop:
Very glittery highlighter, not really a glowing highlighter. It is still a really pretty plain white/silver strobe highlighter. Very creamy, so it applies easily with fingers but not brushes. Great price and great product.
"Do Not Disturb" highlighter Colourpop:
I prefer this one to 'Stole The Show' because it glows more. Deep bronze, dupe for Jeffree Star's 'King Tut' highlighter. It can also be used as a bronzer or eye shadow. Very creamy product, picks up well on a brush however you get the best amount with your finger.
"Chocolate Vice" eye shadow palette Makeup Forever:
Makeup Forever makes dupes for the Too Faced eye shadow palettes, however this palette was not a dupe. It has gorgeous colours but really bad colour payoff, the colours easily come of and you have to get a lot on the brush to get colour on your eyelids. It smells like plastic but that is only because of the packaging, I'm pretty sure there is a caramel-chocolate scent, however I can't smell it quite strongly. But it is a cheap palette, so you're getting what you pay for.
Hope these reviews will help you in the future!
I love matte lipsticks, not because I want to look like a mini Kylie Jenner, but because they look really good on my lips. I love darker coloured matte lips, with a bit of pinky-purple hue, but mainly dark brown. Here are some of my favourites:
Hot Chocolate matte lip from Sportsgirl: http://www.sportsgirl.com.au/beauty/lips/pout-about-it-hot-chocolate-matte-light-brown-all
It is a dark brown matte lip, however it is not a liquid lipstick, it is just a plain lipstick☹ Sportsgirl has a huge variety of shades and types of lipsticks
Vertigo lipstick from Sportsgirl: http://www.sportsgirl.com.au/beauty/lips/pout-about-it-vertigo-lipstick-brown-all
Vertigo isn't a matte lip, however, since it is a lipstick not a liquid lipstick, it comes out pretty matte anyway. The colour is more grey-brown, which looks good on anyone
Kylie Jenner Dolce K lip kit: https://www.kyliecosmetics.com/collections/frontpage/products/dolcek-lip-kit
This wouldn't be a list of matte lip without Kylie Cosmetics, Kylie basically made the popularity around matte lips. I love the Dolce K colour because it is golden and browny, making it a great lip for anyone with a tan (SCORE!)
Those are most of my favs, sorry about it being a short post, I've got exams on so I my schedule is crammed.
My makeup brush set is an online store that sells products from other sites for cheap. Even though I don't wear makeup in public, I like to test and play around with different styles, themes and colours. I like to think of my face being a plain canvas, I put colour on my face, create a story, think of where it will be used and why and think of other cool themed for makeup design. The main things that I want to buy on My Makeup Brush Set is a blending sponge, a hair straightener and a liquid eyeliner. I like this site because it has variety, but not too much variety that you can't decide what you want.
