Apricot Eyes - Colourpop Viper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick Review!

Apricot Eyes 
Colourpop Viper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick  Review


This look is inspired by Apricots and fall colors. This year I have been very inspired by orange and berry shades, especially around this time of year. This look features a orange smokey eye with touches of burgundy and dark brown along with a golden highlight. I followed up with this beautiful Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Viper to bring out the purple shades in my shirt. The inner corner highlight is Colourpop's Super Shock Eyeshadow in the shade Fringe, which matches beautifully with the necklace I paired with it.
Hope you enjoy this fall inspired look :)

Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Viper Review:

A few months ago I received Viper as a gift with purchase after making my very first Colourpop order. I was very excited to try it being that the swatches showed it as a gorgeous raspberry/plum shade that is perfect for fall.
The things I like about this lipstick is how opaque it is. This lipstick in particular only needs one coat to be opaque on the lips and is not streaky or patchy when applied. I also love the Colourpop lip wand and found the doe foot applicator to be very precise and easy to use. It gave me the crisp lines that I was looking for, unlike a lot of liquid lipstick applicators. It reminds me a lot of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick's doe foot applicator, which is a favorite of mine. It's also only $6 which is a wonderful price.

As for what I don't like about this lipstick is how drying it is. There is no way around to making this extremely comfortable on the lips. It didn't flake while wearing it, but it made my lips feel like the Sahara Desert until I took it off. It wasn't unbearable by no means, but I definitely could feel it on my lips so be aware of that. Another disadvantage to this lipstick is that it stains horribly. You will have a medium pink stain to your lips for around a day.

To wear this lipstick comfortably I would recommend exfoliating your lips beforehand. You can easily make a DIY scrub mixing an oil (such as olive oil or coconut oil) with brown sugar. I would also apply a lip balm heavily for 15-20 minutes before wearing this lipstick. Make sure to wipe it off before application of the lipstick. My favorite lip balm as of now is the Smith's Rosebud Lip Salve in the original flavor/scent. By doing these steps I feel it decreased the dryness of the lipstick and made it more comfortable while wearing it all day. If you feel it is getting too dry you could also apply a lip gloss over it, but that will get rid of it being a matte formula. 

Would I repurchase? Yes I would. I want to try more Colourpop liquid lipsticks in the future due to the price point and wide variety of colors available. I would recommend reading reviews on each individual shade before purchasing.

Galaxy Inspired Makeup - Featuring Colourpop Bae

Galaxy Inspired Makeup
Featuring Colourpop Bae


Colourpop is one of those brands that is somewhat new to me as a consumer. I just have recently made an order and ordered a few different products to try out. I bough a few of the super shock shadows in different formulas, blush, highlighter, lippie stix, gel eyeliner, and a ultra matte liquid lipstick. After being in more makeup groups on Facebook and being surrounded by Colourpop I thought why not give in and try it. One of the first shadows that had intrigued me was Bae. This is a burgundy based shadow that leans more on the purple side. It also contains blue shimmer throughout the product which is nice. However, the shimmer was just not enough for my taste so I had decided to add a dusting of Sugarpill's Lumi on top applying it dry with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Overall I have been impressed with Colourpop and I will continue to update with my looks as to what I recommend and don't recommend from the brand.

Alchemy - Dark Purple Makeup Look

Alchemy - Dark Purple Makeup Look 


Today's look I wanted to try something new which is dark purple lipstick. Since I didn't own one I went ahead and mixed Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Echo in equal parts with Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Redrum. It created the most beautiful purple shade that is wonderful for Fall. I paired this lipstick with a neutral based purple smokey eye, winged eyeliner, falsies, and some interesting accessories. Hope you enjoy!

Matte Creme Lip Crayon by Bite Beauty Review

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon Review
#TheMatteCremeLip
By: LethalKitten



This month I received my first VoxBox from Influenster. Within the box it contained the new Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon's in the new shades Red Velvet, Cava, and Glace. I have never tried Bite Beauty and was super excited to try these out. I am a big fan of matte lipsticks and if I'm not wearing liquid lipstick that is usually what I gravitate to formula wise. 

These Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon's are a wonderful product. They glide very easily on the lips and are extremely pigmented. A little goes a long way with the product and you only need one swipe to get the true color on the lips. The formula itself is extremely creamy but easy to apply. They are very moisturizing unlike a lot of matte lipsticks, and I feel that if you are someone who has a problem with matte lipsticks drying your lips out you will love these. However, they do feel thick on the lips and are not thin in consistency. You will definitely feel these on the lips and they feel somewhat like a lipbalm throughout the day. All the shades have a consistent formula as well which is nice. None are less pigmented or dry than the others. These will also transfer and are not kiss proof. If you eat during the day or drink anything you will have to reapply which is a disadvantage to these if you are someone who doesn't want to reapply your lipstick throughout the day. Since these are moisturizing on the lips and are more creamy, they are not extremely matte. They are more of a satin lipstick than a matte in my opinion. My personal favorite shade is Cava because it is very unique in my collection. I see myself using this a lot for my makeup looks since its fantastic by itself and light enough to ombre with other lipsticks that I own. I recommend these if you have been wanting to try out the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons. The formula is great and the color selection is fantastic. I'll definitely be repurchasing these in the future




Hand Swatches:
Here are the hand swatches of each shade. I put barely any pressure on my hand trying these out just to test out the formula.
From top to bottom: Red Velvet, Glace, Cava



Red Velvet
A true red shade with a bit of a blue undertone to it.
It's a 1950's pin-up red. 
Any skin tone could rock this shade.


Glace:
This is a darker pink warm toned nude on me. 
To me it's a classic dark pink that a lot of people enjoy wearing.
I see this type of lipstick everywhere.
It's an every day shade that would suit a lot of skin tones. 


Cava
For me this shade is a light purple pink shade.
It's a very trendy color and is more of a cool toned.
I feel this shade could suit a lot of skin tones, but probably isn't everyone's cup of tea. 


-----------------
Pros:
- Extremely creamy
- Non-drying 
- Wide shade range for people to select from
- 90% natural ingredients
- Easy to apply
- Sleek packaging
- Highly pigmented

Cons:
- Are not transfer proof
- Are not super matte in the formula
- Ruberized packaging will get dirty over time
- Expensive 



I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
