REVIEW: Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick


The shade shown here is called Berlin. It's labeled as a warm rose color.  I would describe it as a coral with a hint of a red undertone.  

This product is supposed to be a long wearing, full coverage liquid lipstick and it has a matte finish.

The formula has also been updated from the previous liquid lipsticks in Kat's line.

Here is just one swipe of the product.
Before I applied Berlin, I moisturized my lips with Carmex Lip Balm.  As you can see, I have very pigmented lips (excuse my awkward expression).
This is just one application. It went on a bit streaky at first.
This was the 2nd application and the product went on smooth like a creamy gloss. There is a hint of shine.
Here I let the product dry completely. 
My lips felt a bit sticky but I did not press my lips together. I just let the liquid lipstick do its thing.

Just after one hour of application. My lips felt a bit dry.
After a total of 1.5 hours, the liquid lipstick was not completely budge-proof.
After 2 hours of wear, the lines on my lips were more visible. I had to take the stuff off because my lips felt so dry. So this was not as moisturizing as I thought. It did leave a faint stain on my lips.

This color is so gorgeous and it's pretty long wearing but totally not budge proof. If you like the look of matte lips, then this liquid lipstick is totally for you. However, I didn't like the dry feel it gave my lips and they looked dehydrated and not as smooth as the first application.

Have you tried Kat Von D's Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick? Let me know.

REVIEW: Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette

The latest palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills is in collaboration with a popular blogger on Instagram named Amra Olevic.

The top row contains 5 shimmery (non chunky/glittery) shades and 5 matte shades on the bottom row.

Top Row:
Legend, Glisten, Topaz, Iridescent Purple, and Emerald

Bottom Row:
Vanilla, Caramel, Morocco, Deep Plum, and LBD

A duo ended eyeshadow brush is also included.
The pigmentation is pretty good.
The only color that doesn't last as long is Iridescent Purple. 
If you use a purple base it prevents the shadow from fading.

Here is a picture with a purple base on the bottom lash line.
This is a recent look I did on YouTube. I used Maybelline's Creamy Beige Color Tattoo on my lid.
My favorite colors in the palette are Glisten, Caramel, Morocco, and Deep Plum.

Overall, I really like the choice of colors and highly recommend it for different everyday looks.
The colors blend really well together and compliment all skin tones and eye colors.

Do you own this palette? What are your thoughts?

REVIEW: L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints


These lip paints from L.A. Girl cosmetics are raved about on YouTube, Instagram, and on every beauty blog!

So what exactly is all the hype about?

Everyone loves these because they are a dupe for the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks at a fraction of the price ($3.25 each).
I would describe these as a lipstick, lipgloss, and lip stain all in one.

Hot Mess

Blushing

Bombshell

Babydoll

They are highly pigmented, non-drying, and long wearing.
They also have a minty fresh feeling on the lips because they contain peppermint oil and Vitamin E.

Back of the tube has the name of each color.
You can apply them directly from the tube or with a lip brush.

I'm a coffee drinker and these lip paints stay on my lips for about 4-5 hours.
Have you tried them yet? If so, tell me your thoughts and if you will get more colors.  

xo, Sharlene.
