Girlactik Matte Lip Paint – Review

*Products were sent for review purposes. All opinions are my own. Affiliate links are used and will result in commission.*

I’m always on the hunt for a good matte liquid lipstick that can last a full day without reapplication. I recently found two brands that have liquid lipsticks that do just that, and today I’ll be sharing the first one: Girlactik Beauty. Their liquid lipsticks are called Matte Lip Paints and come in 20 shades of which three are metallic. The two shades I have are Allure and Spice (which used to be called Jamesy). Girlactik Beauty products are sold at specific locations, in Miami there is only one location and it’s in Miami Beach which unfortunately is far from me. Here are the swatches of both shades before I go into my review!

Glam Halloween Inspired Makeup Look

It’s finally October and Halloween is slowly approaching, so I was inspired to create a Halloween Glam Look. For this look, I thought about pumpkins, for some odd reason, and picked the shades orange and green for my eyeshadow. Coincidentally, these are the same colors as University of Miami so you could wear this look for a football game or tailgate! Go Hurricanes! Anyway, hope you enjoy it and if you recreate it make sure to tag me. 🙂 I’ve included all items used below and a close up eyeshadow image too! I’m going to try creating a spooky Halloween look soon so keep your eyes peeled for that and until next time, peace out! Glam Halloween Inspired Makeup Look

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour Swatches + Mini Review*

*Products were sent for review consideration. Affiliate links are used and may result in commission.*

Today I bring you a new lip swatch post and I will be updating in a few days with my complete review. These are Rimmel London’s new Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours. There are 14 shades in the collection ranging from nudes to even a grey so you have a nice variety to chose from in this set. They retail for $5.49! Fresh out of the tube, the lip colours have a mousse texture but once dried they are completely matte and do not transfer. I was actually surprised that I kept kissing my hand and…no trace of the lipstick was ever left behind! I have three shades to share with you guys.

Welcome back to a first impressions! Today’s first impressions is on Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipsticks. These lipsticks retail for $8; however, are currently on sale on their website for $5.99. Right off the bat, the first thing that I like about these lipsticks, besides the price, is that they contain an SPF 15. You all know I’m a sunscreen junkie and I totally believe in using lipsticks or lip balms that have SPF. So automatically one thumbs up!

This line of lipsticks is supposed to help improve the condition of your lips and relieve the feeling of dryness. Upon application, I loved that the lipsticks did feel really moisturizing. Obviously this formula is not like a liquid lipstick, so it’s going to be creamier and more hydrating. They glided on without the slightest tug and showed powerful pigmentation. The only shade that left me wanting more was Mellow Melon. If you look at the lip swatch above, it looks a bit streaky. Unfortunately this is common with pastel colors like this one.

So let’s talk about the scent of the lipsticks for a moment. I took the top off, smelled the lipstick, and the first thing that came to mind was a cherry lollipop. For me this was a delightful smell and it did not linger after application. If you’re someone who likes products to have zero fragrance this isn’t for you. Furthermore, if you want a lipstick that you do not need to reapply, this is not for you. These lipsticks do transfer but it’s to be expected with this kind of formula.

My favorite shades have to be Brown Sugar, Nude Truffle, and Berry Sangria. There are 10 shades in the collection which is pretty decent. Wish there were a few more variations of orange and purple. Overall, this first impressions is a positive one. I can’t wait to give them a full day of wear and see how long they last on the lips! Hoping they keep my lips moisturized all day too. Will keep you all updated, but until next time peace out!
