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! 😉
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! 😉
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!
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! 🙂
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. 🙂
Butter London is definitely a company known for their nail polishes, but did you know that they also have a full line of color cosmetics? Not only that, though I haven’t tried everything, what I have tried is pretty stinkin’ fantastic! One of my absolute favorite products is something currently on sale at Ulta during their 21 Days of Beauty, so no time like the present to finally talk about the Butter London Lippy Moisture Matte Lipsticks!
