Tarte Color Splash Lipsticks & LIP SWATCHES – New VEGAN Addition to Rainforest of the Sea Line!

Not too long ago, Tarte introduced a new line and formula of lipsticks. I must say that if there is one area where Tarte has always left a bit to be desired, it’s lipsticks. Well, enter the Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipsticks! Not to ruin my thoughts, but I think Tarte has finally come up with a fantastic formula that ticks pretty much every box! 😆 I’m not going to lie, I was really drawn to these by the absolutely stunning packaging! 😍 It’s Summer personified with the coolest, prettiest beachy vibe. Absolutely nailed the packaging! And the formula…well, I’ve spoiled things a bit, but let’s get into the nitty gritty details! 😉

ColourPop Has Gone International! – Guide to All Things COLOURPOP!

Good news for all you International babes out there…ColourPop is now shipping overseas (minus Turkey & China)!!! I absolutely adore ColourPop, though I am constantly frustrated with their never ending roll outs of this and that’s (KathleenLights from YouTube literally just released another collab with them). The good news is that it’s pretty hard to truly break the bank with ColourPop and they have so many options – both in color choice and in type of products! If you’re looking for fantastic, fun, and affordable color cosmetics, you needn’t look further than ColourPop! I tried doing an Overview of ColourPop before, but the brand has grown so much even since then that I feel a need to update a bit. So, to help all of you who may be new to the brand, I’m going to try and give a bit of an overview of the brand’s offerings and mention some of my favorite formulas and colors. Try may be the key word here as there is always a lot to cover! 😉

Best Matte Lipsticks? Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipsticks!

I feel like I’ve been raving about the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks a fair amount recently so I figure it’s about time to review them! With the recent/impending release of the Hot Lips Collection, I figure there’s no time like the present. If you’re unfamiliar with Charlotte Tilbury, she is an amazing British makeup artist that now has her own cruelty free high-end range. There is a bit of skincare thrown in with some brushes (which I suspect are natural hair) and a lot of makeup, and all of the items I’ve tried are amazing! Best of all in my eyes? The Matte Revolution Lipsticks! 😉

5 Cruelty Free Products WORTH the Hype!

 

ProductsWorthTheHype-0003c

If you’re like me and read a lot of beauty blogs or watch a lot of YouTube beauty videos, you surely have noticed that certain products are mentioned over and over and over again. They get a lot of buzz! One always wonders if those products are really as good as they seem, or if there’s just some kind of mob mentality keeping everyone enamored with the same so-so products. Always curious about the next best thing, I often find myself trying those “it” products of the moment just to see if they’re really everything my mind has made them out to be. Well, today we’re going to go through five of those very products that do indeed live up to every glowing review, each overly enthusiastic video and even, of all things, most of the products’ own claims! 🙂 Without further ado, I bring you 5 Cruelty Free Products WORTH the Hype!

Bite Beauty Lip Lab – The Shades!

BiteLipLab-NeutralPinkPeachRed-0008

If you read last week’s post, you’ll know that I went to the Bite Beauty Lip Lab in NYC a couple of months ago and created my own custom shades of lipstick! I had a great time and came out with far too many great lipsticks made to my specifications. I shared the experience, but not the shades themselves. As promised, today we’re going to look at the actual shades I created! Again, I apologize for breaking this into two parts, but the experience post was already so long. For this post, I don’t have a lot more to add other than photos so let’s just look at the colors! 🙂

Bite Beauty Lip Lab – My Experience (lots o’ pics)

BiteLipLab-0001b

About a month and a half ago, I went to NYC to help my father out with something and ended up staying one night so I could head down to the Bite Beauty Lip Lab! All work and no play makes me…a lot less tired apparently! 🙂 If you’re unaware, the amazing lip product company has their own little “shop” in Soho. I say “shop” loosely because yes, they sell lipsticks. But these aren’t just your run of the mill, I bought it at Sephora kind of lipsticks – they’re custom made while you wait!!! Not only do you get to see the lipstick go from pigments and bases to an honest to goodness tube of beauty, but you help create the perfect color! Being just plain makeup crazy, not to mention lipstick addicted, I had to check it out and here’s my experience. 🙂
