The other night, I decided to take inventory of my lipstick collection and make some swatches for references. I have swatches of nudes, pinks, red, and purples here. I didn’t swatch my “weird” colors (blacks, greens, blues, browns, gold, etc.), though. All-in-all I have approximately 124 lipsticks… yeah, a lot. Next time I think to myself “oh, I need that lipstick,” I should definitely take a second and remind myself that, no, I do not need more lipstick. In these photos, liquid lipsticks are on the left and bullet lipsticks are on the right.
Clearly, I have a soft spot for nudes and purples. No surprise there, really. Purple is my favorite color and I think I pull it off well. This totally goes against what I said earlier, but do you think I have any holes in my collection? I have since added two reds from Beauty Bakerie since these photos. My Aromi reds were the first ones I bought and I think they’re getting a little old and might have to be tossed soon. I plan on trying out the new TooFaced liquid latex formula, too, but need to decide on which color exactly. And then I’m promptly going on a lipstick no-buy.
This bag is adorable! What a fun idea! I was very happy with this month’s glam bag. Do you have ipsy? It’s only $10/month! Sign up here!
Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush – How cute is this brush?! Takes me back to my grade school days and being obsessed with Lisa Frank. The bristles are soft and I like the angle of them, as well. Solid, cute brush!
SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Face Toner – This stuff smells a little strange, but it does wonderful things for my skin. I love toners and they’re essential to my skincare routine, so I love trying new ones out. This doesn’t dry out my skin too much either.
Adesse New York Cupuaçu Butter Lip Balm™ – Wow this makes my lips soft! I’m sort of a lip balm whore, so I’m always excited to try new ones and this did not disappoint! It smells good, feels amazing on, and makes my lips feel super hydrated.
Ciaté London Mini Bamboo Bronzer – I love the Ciate brand, but I was a little disappointed to get another bronzer in my ipsy bag. I just got one last month and a little bronzer truly goes a long way. It’s a pretty color, though.
ColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Pencil in Swerve – I was actually needing a new black eyeliner, so this came right in time! I’m a fan of ColourPop! Quality products plus fantastic price points.
Autumn brings bold, dark makeup looks and the easiest place to pull it off is on your lips! For extreme staying-power, I prefer liquid lipstick formulas. I’d like to point out that I wasn’t sent any of these products – I bought them all on my own. Here are some of my favorite liquid lipsticks for fall!
ColourPop’s Beeper (Warm Taupe) – A great neutral-brown shade. I purged a bunch of my CP liquid lipsticks that I didn’t reach for or if I had a similar color in a better brand. This one, though, has remained a favorite of mine.
Lime Crime’s Saddle (Brown) – A rusty-brown color. I was a little nervous how this one would look on me, but I actually love it.
Aromi’s Vamptastic Plum (Dark Plum) – I loooove purple lips. This is probably the shade that I rock the most.
Makeup Monstor’s Bewitched (Burgundy) – Just got this one, but I love it already! Makeup Monster’s formula is soooo good and their price is unbeatable. Seriously, check them out.
Aromi’s Red Dahlia (Deep Red) – A nice, vampy red is a must for fall. I love my Red Dahlia shade from Aromi. And the tubes are different, because they upgraded the packaging. This is the newer look.
Lime Crime’s Pumpkin (Red-Orange) – What would fall be without some pumpkin orange? This is surprisingly wear-able.
What are some of your favorite liquid lipsticks to rock in the fall? I’d love to hear some of yours!
The June glam bag is here! I love the graffiti pattern on this bag, very cute! It seems that I’m finally starting to get bags that are more my taste.
ColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Liner in Get Paid or Swerve – I’ve never tried a ColourPop eyeliner before! This is a fun color, especially for summer! I was pleasantly surprised how creamy and easy to apply they were!
theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow in Matt Kumar or Matt Moskowitz – This is a great matte, plum shade! I love purple shadows and I love the fact that this one is matte. I’ve been using it to smoke up my look a bit by using it in the crease with browns and purples on the lid.
oo-Boo Cover-Up Baby Boo-Boo Cover-Up –
A little goes a long way with this stuff! It’s a little too light for me right now with it being summer. It was easy to apply and remained smooth – no settling into fine lines, though.
BioRepublic SkinCare Fiber Mask Set – I love masks, so I was very excited to receive these in my glam bag this month! These were fun! I love the smell and my skin felt refreshed after using them.
Liptini Cream Lip Color in Pinktini – This was okay. The color is pretty, but I don’t like taking the time to use a brush to put on lip products, so I don’t like how this is packaged.
