Description: Violet Chiffon is a creamy berry purple, Cardinal Plume is a coral orange red with golden shimmers.

Review: Don’t the shades look gorgeous granted Violet Chiffon isn’t really summer-friendly Cardinal Plume is just gorgeous. I love the packaging of this they have the actual shade on the side which makes is easy to see which shade I will be picking up if stored on it’s side. It’s also a fantastic classy shade of gold that is just great and I don’t have any issues with the packaging no matter how many times I’ve dropped it. Onto the formulation of the lipsticks as that is the most important thing. These glide on very smoothly on the lips, do not settle into any liplines and don’t migrate around your face. As you can tell in the swatches they are pigmented and can be swiped across the lips more than once to have even more pigmentation to the shade. Cardinal Plume is a great everyday shade especially in the summer and Violet Chiffon is in a category of it’s own. It’s sort of vampy when swatched more than once on the lips but can look really spring like with just one swipe across the lips. A great all seasons shade just don’t let the purple trick you it looks very berry like on the lips (like you just ate some blueberries). Overall, I love the lipsticks in this range I’m just a little upset that they cost $10CDN each.

Cost: $10-13CDN @ local drugstores and marketplaces

Would I recommend this product? Yes, I am in love with these lipsticks I will definately be picking up more sometime in the near future (if I can’t resist).

Review: Covergirl Lip Perfection in 260 Heavenly

12 Aug

Hello everyone! Oh, pigmented lipstick with other properties?

Product Description: A lipstick that helps heal your lips and make them look perfect in 7 days with pigmented colors. 260 Heavenly is a fresh pink color. This is a cream shade.

Review: I really like this lipstick color and I think it suits my skin tone (yellow) very well. The lipstick was a lot more pigmented then I thought it would be so surprise there. Over the course of 7 days I didn’t notice anything different about my lips if anything they felt even drier than when I started using the lipstick. This lipstick doesn’t have a smooth glide across the lip and I don’t detect any scent from it. Wear time is about 3-4 hours with eating and drinking. Overall, it’s a very nice pigmented lipstick for those on a budget.

Cost: $9-13CDN @ drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this as it is a really good lipstick but would recommend putting balm underneath the lipstick so that your lips don’t feel so dry.

Review: Limited Edition Maybelline Colorsensational Lollipop Lipsticks

11 Aug

Hello everyone! A limited edition review I haven’t done one of these in a long time as I really don’t like the idea of limited edition.

Product Description: An lollipop color and shades perfect for the summer. I picked up 110 Raspberry Ice and 120 Citrus Slice. Both are basic glossy lipstick with a slight hint of color.

Review: Well as you can tell from the swatches they don’t show up on my hand but there is a bit of a tint when applied to the lips. Strange that it doesn’t work for my hand though. Anyways, the lipstick has a balm like feeling when applying and sometimes it tugs on my lips. It doesn’t dry out my lips but doesn’t make them feel moisturized either. I wasn’t expecting much from the product and it turned out there really is nothing really special about this except for the super bright packaging and the see-throughness of the lipstick. Each of the shades had their own scent which was nice touch. Overall, I would say a nice lipstick for those just looking for a tint or for those who just like quirky lipsticks.

Cost: $8-13CDN @ drugstores and supermarkets for a limited time

Would I recommend this product? I would purchase all the shades as they are a really cool concept with the see-through lipstick but you can get better formulation and pigmentation for the amount of money you are paying. So I would say unless you like these sorts of lipsticks it just isn’t worth purchasing.

Review: Maybelline Colorsensation Lipstick in 625 Are you Red-dy

3 Aug

Hello everyone! OMG it’s a red lipstick!!

Description: A true red leaning a bit orange but overall a true red lipstick.

Review: Every woman should own at least one red lipstick but finding the right red lipstick is hard to do especially considering undertones and whatnot. With Maybelline’s Are you Red-dy the color is a saturated, pigmented red shade. There is bits of underlying orange but this is mainly a red lipstick. The lipstick slides smoothly across the lips and is pretty long lasting. On me it lasted about 5-6 hours including eating and drinking. There is no scent which is good and I really like the packaging of this; the red makes it easier for me to spot and pick up to use. Overall, a great shade for any skintone.

Cost: $5.99-9.99 @ local drugstore/ supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I totally would it is a nice red to own but I probably won’t repurchase because I don’t wear reds that often.

Review: Dior Addikt Lipstick in 422 Tokyo

29 Jul

Hello everyone! Another high-end post today I think I’m on a high end makeup kick… anyways, onto the review.

Product Description: This lipstick is described as a hydrating lip color and has a hydrating and voluminzing property while giving color and high gloss shine. 422 Tokyo is described as a sheer peachy pink.

Review: First off, packaging. The packaging is pretty dense and has a heavy weight to it (the weight of luxury?) and the end opens up with a doorknob type feature at the bottom of the tube. The outside sports a nice shiny effect with multi color reflections and has Dior raised on the edge on one side. Absolutely gorgeous and stunning for lipstick packaging. The formula is a pretty good formula it does provide a nice sheen to your lips and is a pretty shade. I think the peachy pink shades work well for most skintones and it does have some micro shimmers in it. There is no scent to them and for complaints I surprisingly don’t have any (and it’s not like I don’t have any because of the brand/luxury of it). A great lipstick for those willing to spend money on it (my wallet practically died).

Cost: $28USD /$31CDN @ Sephora or Dior counters

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would totally recommend this product for those who are interested in the formula and are willing to spend a good amount of money on their lipstick. I will totally repurchase this lipsitck line whenever I find some money or win the lottery.

Review: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick

28 Jun

Hello everyone! This lipstick line has been released for a while but here’s my review on the lipstick.

Review: The shade that I picked up is Blush it’s a nice nudey rose color that enhances my lip color (therefore classified as a my lips but better color). There is no scent and it glides on pretty smooth on the lips. Not as moisturizing as I’d like it to be but the color payoff is really good. The color is buildable as for staying power I get about 3-4 hours max excluding drinking and eating. Overall a great lipstick but I won’t be purchasing more as I feel like it can be a bit drying at times.

Cost: $8-10CDN @ drugstore and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? Yes they are beautiful shades and the packaging is gorgeous!
