Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick in Chauffeur

Makeup Revolution has been creating some serious packaging need recently. They brought out their Rose Gold lipsticks and it was so hard not to buy all of them simply for the packaging. Chauffeur all soft pink beige, was of course the one I picked…for now.

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin and Redrum

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin and Redrum

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeee!!

I have been waiting for ages to share this post with you. For my Birthday my in laws got me not one, but three things on my make-up to die for list; The Balm Nude Dude palette, Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks in Redrum and Celebrity  Skin!! So spoilt! So here the finally are:

Redrum

 
“The perfect red: this matte cool toned red looks amazing on any skin tone.”

This red is just so amazing! It wears beautifully for a start so you don’t have to worry about it, you can just look amazing all day long.

Celebrity Skin
“This soft brown nude with a peachy undertone will be everyones “go-to” fav!”

I didn’t know whether I was going to like this, but my recent love of nudes got the better of me and I am glad it did. It looks so great on and just like Redrum it wears beautifully.

I am really happy with my Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks; they wear really well and when you do need to touch them up its easy and still looks flawless. I find that I only need to touch them up after a meal that has oil of some sort in it. They dry very quickly and have a soft and natural finish. You can talk and smile and not worry about it cracking or creasing. Usually when I wear my dry matte lipsticks I have to do the pump half of bottom lip, pump into tube other half and repeat on the top trick, but not with this. Whether its the aplicator or the formula or a combo of both I only need one pump for the bottom and one for the top. This makes application so much easier and gives a much better finish.

I am so excited to get my hands on more and Jeffree Star Cosmetics has some great new shades coming out. If you don’t already follow them on instagram to find out about the new shades.

Do you own any Jeffree Star lipsticks? What would you like to get your hands on?

Karen Murrell Lipstick Bumper Edition

Karen Murrell Lipstick Bumper Edition

Hello!

Hows it going! I am home today from work with the start of a cold. Boo! But I have been able to get the last few things changed over to my new blog name as well as get some pictures sorted.

I wanted to start with my newest Karen Murrell lipsticks; Sand Storm, Red Shimmer, Fuchsia Shock and Pink Starlet. It has taken a great amount of time for me to be happy with these photos, I am still learning to use my new camera so please forgive me that the swatches are not up to my usual standard.

Here we go!

KM Latest Lippy boxesLeft to Right: Pink Starlet, Red Shimmer, Sand Strom and Fuchsia Shock.

Sand Storm

Inspired by the rugged natural beauty of Highway 1 USA. Sand Storm is nature at its finest which envelopes the lips in a subtly sandy brown shade.” 

I am not too taken with Sand Storm, its not a bad colour, I think I just have the wrong skin tone for it. It makes me work super hard for it too look right and sometimes you don’t need a lipstick like that in your collection. Of course you have the wonderful Lani from Lani Loves who makes it look amazing, so don’t just take my word on it 😉

Red Shimmer
Red Shimmer evokes feelings of confidence and strength. I always feel a wash of excitement come over me as I apply Red Shimmer… like something exciting is going to happen.”

I am still on the fence with Red Shimmer, sometimes it looks lovely on me, sometimes it washes me out. That might be more what I am wearing and the make-up I have on. So it is a little hard working, lucky for it, it is a nice colour I am prepared to make it work, I just need to think a little harder with this colour.

Fuchsia Shock
Fuchsia Shock brings out my ultimate girl power! Strong and playful.”

I really like how bold this is, but not too over the top. It looks great with my hair (which is currently pastel purple) and is good for both day and night looks. I really enjoy wearing this.

Pink Starlet


The blue/gold base highlights all skin, eye and hair colours, perfect for anyone who wants an easy fail-safe colour to build self-confidence.”

Pink Starlet is a lovely pink and I have enjoyed wearing it quite a bit. I wear this with more toned down looks, where I bung on some foundation, some mascara and this lipstick and get on with the day. It gives you a bit of colour without you having to worry about pairing it with the right look.

I really love using Karen Murrell lipsticks, they are great quality and are so kind to your lips. All of the shades I have stay on your lips for a reasonable amount of time, but are not too much of a pain to reapply if you need to. I don’t suffer from any bleeding or drying. Sand Storm and Red Shimmer could be a little bit patchy in places for me, but that is just the type of finishes they have I think.

I am so pleased with my little collection of lipsticks, I think my favorites so far are True Love and Violet Mousse.

Do you own any Karen Murrell Lipsticks? What shades would you like to get?

MAC Lipstick in Mystical

Good Morning!

I thought I would end the year with my favourite lipstick from 2014, MAC’s Mystical from the Alluring Aquatic collection, which is sadly limited edition. I have reviewed Goddess of the Sea, Lorelei and Silver Sun already. If you are after limited edition MAC be sure to check out ebay, trademe and Facebook groups. Do keep your eye out for fakes though.
