With the liquid lipstick trend, a lot of complaints from fans have been that they often leave their lips high and dry. So, seeing a full color lip oil is refreshing while still being trendy. The NYX Slip Tease Full Color Lip Oils are interesting because I did not know what to expect. Actually, I was under the impression that they would glide on (which they did) and stay slightly glossy (they didn’t – they actually dry matte) while keeping my lips comfortable (yes, extremely comfortable and lightweight). I picked up 4 colors because I wanted to experiment with a variety of shades.
When it comes to contouring MY face, I’m not much of a fan. Strobing, however, is an entire, different story. I love, love, love using different shades of highlighters to provide light from within that looks natural and healthy, and for that, you need varying shades that compliment each other. I was sent three Strobelight Instant Glow Powders from Milani Cosmetics, and I decided to create a look JUST like that – using only the three.
I’ve been matched to my MAC shade a few times, so I know for sure I’m NC35. ColourPop recently released their line of 42 shades of No Filter Foundation, and I knew it would be a little work to find my correct shade. Did I find it? I’m not quite sure, as I have not worn it WITH additional makeup, such as highlighter and blush, etc. BUT, I did get close. Are you ready to see what shades I chose and how they looked on me?
Let’s get real for a moment, bullet lipsticks are having a moment right now. They’re getting bolder, more comfortable, and formulas are also getting better and better. When ColourPop came out with the Lux Lipsticks, we all held our breath for a second to see what it was all about and thought, “This is it. How can they make something this good better?” Well, hold your breath for a second, and you’ll be proven wrong. Apparently, ColourPop took it one step further and made a comfort matte formula in the form of the matte lux lipsticks, and they also threw in a few colors for fun! Minus those two shades in Confetti Cake and Trill Seeker, I grabbed them all. So, are you ready to dive in or are you ready to exhale?
