Many Many Monday Swatches! ~ Liquid Lipstick Collection

IMG_2416

Happy Monday everyone! I had a conversation with the lovely Cat yesterday that prompted me to remember that I already owned Stila’s Stay All Day Lipstick in Fiery. Which of course prompted me to remember all the liquid lipsticks I do own! So of course, what better way to remember them then to swatch them all?

EOTD ~ Indie Spotlight on Victorian Disco!

Happy Monday (or in my case, “happy six cups of tea day!”) Mondays are not my favorite atΒ all. But in order to brighten my day I decided to do a fun and easy eye look! Something you guys may not know about me is that I actually have way way more eyeshadows than lipsticks! Which really is a feat to accomplish. I’ve been collecting indie brand loose pigments for hmm, probably six years now and I have a huge collection from a lot of different brands. (As well as singles and z-palettes and a regular palettes that aren’t in the photo and well, you get the point! I have a lot of eyeshadow).

a whole drawer of eyeshadow!

I’ve been meaning to document and actually use everything I own at least once for the purposes of swatching, so I thought “why not start today?”

Spring Empties!

Okay so I’ve been meaning to do an empty products post for…. an embarrassingly long time. I decided just to lump a bunch of months together and call it Spring because I can’t remember exactly when I started collecting my empties! Like most people, I burn through skincare products way faster than makeup, so this post is mostly skincare things πŸ™‚

liquid lipstick swatches & comparisons!

Who else loves liquid lipsticks?
Its been my obsession lately and with the recent addition of Melted Velvet and Berry to my collection, I wanted to do a quick comparison between some of my red liquid lipsticks! Its super snowy here right now, so the “sunlight” photo still looks a little dim, but I’m promise all five of these lipsticks are very pigmented!

2. Stila Stay All Day – Fiery
3. Too Faced Melted – Velvet
4. Too Faced Melted – Berry
5. NYX Matte Lip Cream – Copenhagen

Too Faced Thursday!

So Too Faced was having a 75% off sale a couple weeksΒ ago and I couldn’t help but snag some stuff at RIDICULOUS prices. I think I grabbed a La Creme lipstick at maybe $8 and an eyeshadow at $3? Anyways, I’ll do an in-depth later but for now,Β AHHHH new goodies!

yay new stuff!

The Berry Melted is SO GORGEOUS. I love how comfortable they are to wear but the Berry definitely has more of a tendency to slide than my Velvet. Not sure why… but it is easily fixed with a clear liner! The La Creme is my first one despite being on my to-try list forever! I LOVE IT. It’s in the color Cinnamon Kiss which is a lovely mauve-y rosy kind of color. Similar to Edward Bess Night Romance for those who have that, or even like a darker version of Urban DecayΒ Fiend or a lighter version of MAC Craving.

More on Too Faced later! But so far, I am LOVING it. Uh oh… I might just have to get more of those Melteds now! Or the metallic ones for spring!

Have you tried any Too Faced products? What are your hits and misses? And more importantly, have any of you tried the Metal Melteds yet? I am super curious on how they perform!

til later, lovelies!
