Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Wink for Pink - 616
kikidoll27 4/3/2013 2:59:00 PM
I've heard a lot about Revlon lipsticks. I've tried the Moondrops, their lipbutters, the balm stains, and the gloss version of the Super Lustrous lipsticks, but never an actually SL Lipstick. I had a two dollar off coupon and decided to get one of these in Wink for Pink, number 616. I'm actually shocked by how much I like it! The pigmentation is alright, it goes on pretty sheer but can be built up to a fuller color. i do use a lipliner with it, but it can be worn without and doesn't feather on me. The color of it is MLBB, at least for me. I have pigmented, almost coral colored lips, so this just adds a bit of shine and some more color. I love it with wet n wild color icon blush in heather silk for everyday. The quality of this lipstick is amazing! It's creamy, but not Moondrops creamy, and is so buildable. I will definitely repurchase and try more from this line, especially if I'm able to find more coupons. The price is 5.99 at Target, but I got it for 3.99. They often have bogo half off sales, so watch the ads.
I generally use my Elf flat top powder brush (a cult faveorite) for applying blush, but recently noticed that it smears my makeup. So off to Target I went. This costs three dollars at Target and on Elf's website, which is a steal for a makeup brush nowadays. The studio line is my favorite line of brushes ever, so I decided to try this for blush application. I really like it for blush and bronzer since it picks up the perfect amount of pruduct and doesn't smear my makeup. It washes well and hardly sheds. And come on, it's three dollars.
How does Elf make such inexpensive and amazing brushes? Seriously, this brush is incredibley soft. I like to use it with their HD powder and dust it lightly all over my face. It's also great with blush and bronzer, especially blush. It washes well and hardly sheds. For three dollars, this is a steal! I've been looking at some mac brushes lately but honestly, compared to the elf studio line, I just can't justify buying them. If you're looking for a nice powder/blush brush, this is one to check out.
I have very fair skin. Verrrry fair skin. So natrually, I'm pretty hesitant when it comes to trying bronzers because I'm always afraid they'll look muddy on me or look too dark. This one is prefect! There are four colors in it: a dark brown, a brown, a pinkish-toupe color, and an eggshell color. I swirl them all together to create a shimmery bronze color, and use it to contour my face or dust on my cheeks for a glowly sunkissed look. I use my elf blush brush to apply this, or just an eyeshadow brush if I'm contouring my nose. This could also work as an eyeshadow quad if I'm on the go and can't bring all my makeup. I would also be able to use the eggshell shade as an all over highligher. Overall, this is a great product. I really like the shimmer, although some will not. And come on, it's three dollars! The packaging is incredibly chic and resembles the Nars blushes/bronzer. I plan to repurchasing this.
I recieved this and Twinkle Pink for Christmas this past year, and am so surprised I haven't reviewed them yet because I love them! Out of the two, I wear this one more because it goes with more of my coral-y makeup looks. The color is an orange toned coral (at least on my fair skin) with a slight hint of pink. It's a matte blush, which I prefer for every day. It comes in a package very similar to those of the Nars blushes, and looks incredibley chic in my makeup collection. The pigmentation is good, but not wet n wild color icon blushes good, which I like because those can be a bit hard to blend out/too harsh on my fair skin. I would definitely buy this again, and at three dollars, I'll be picking up more of the line. These blushes are a great find.
I got this blush and Candid Coral for Christmas, and have been loving them ever since. My usual blushes, wet n wild color icon, have been replaced! This blush is a light pink with shimmer--semi heavy skimmer--so I use this as a highlightler as well, but just on the tops of my cheekbones. The pigmentation is good, not quite as pigmented as the color icon blushes which I like, because those can be a bit too pigmented for applying on the go. I like to apply this either with the flat top powder brush or the complexion brush, both by Elf. Would I repuchase this? Yes. It's three dollars at Target and on their website. Also, the packaging is very similar to Nars and looks incredibley chic in my makeup collection.

I always make sure to buy a ton of these durring their semi anual sales. It smells exactly how the same implies. It's sweet and fruity, but with a citrus tang to it. The lasting power is nice, it stays on for about eight hours before the smell begins to fade. I love this fragrance, and for 3.25 durring the sales, you can't go wrong.

I believe I had the Red Velvet gloss. The texture and color were perfect--no shimmer, medium coverage pink, slightly sticky--but the gloss itself ended up seperating (goopy gloss on the top, yucky oily stuff being squeezed out) after about a month. I did enjoy using the gloss, but wouldn't have repurchased anyway. Now I definitely won't. It is a nice color, though, but buy at your own risk.

I got this a while ago, maybe a year ago, back when they very first came out. I remembered liking it to begin with, but then I began to notice how greasy it is! It would feel realy uncomfortable on my lips to the point where I would end up having to wipe it off. Also, I don't know if this was just me, but it seemed to dry out the skin around my mouth. Don't ask me why or how, I just know that every time I wore this my face would become dry. And on top of that, it didn't moisturize my lips! I don't know if I got a bad tube or something, but I just couldn't roll with this. I much prefer my eos and nivea lipbalms to this.
I'm kind of ashamed to like this, since it has enough glitter for my familiy's glitter ball Christmas tree...but oh, how I love it. It's NOT an everyday gloss for me--I much prefer very nude lips--but for special occasions this is great! Especially if I'm going to be taking photos, this looks so unexpected and cathes the light beautiful. Wearing this always gets me many 'what lipgloss is that' and 'your lips!' comments. The color is a very very sheer red with shimmer. Sometimes if I really want to wear this to school, I'll layer it over my faveorite nude lipstick (Rimmel Airy Fairy) for a subtle sparkle effect. I believe it retails for 8.00 at Bath and Body Works.

Mmmmm...this gloss smells and tastes so good! I recently ran out of mine and have yet to repurchase, but I most certinly will! On my lips, it comes off a sheer wash of shimmer that really looks great alone or over pretty much every lipstick I own. I also like to place it in the center of my lips at a 'highlighter'. The smell/taste reminds me a lot of the Victoria's Secrect Beauty Rush lipgloss in Strawberry Fizz-the texture is also very similar. Both are sticky, but not too sticky, and last for around three hours.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Liplicious - Pink Grapefruit

This is my HG spring/summer gloss. There color is a light peachy pink that looks nice over my favorite coral lipstick (revlon moondrops in blase apricot) or on its own. The scent is just what the name implies--pink grapefruit. It smells very fresh and fun. It's not sticky or greasy, and lasts about two hours.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Liplicious Black Cherry

I hate to bring down the rating for this product, because I do like Liplicious lipglosses. Unfortunately, this one did not rock my world. I love the color. It's a sheer but juicy berry with shimmer laced into it that looks nice aganist my fair skin. I would love it, except...the smell! It's so strong. I don't even know. It's a very cherry medicince scent that's overwhelming, and the scent it basically the same. If they reformulated this w/o the scent, I could get on board. The other con is that it's quite sticky, but I prefer sticky glosses since they adhere to my lips and tend to have better lasting power.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Liplicious Cotton Candy
kikidoll27 4/1/2013 1:01:00 PM
This is 8.00 at Bath and Body Works. The Liplicious line has an array of glosses that remind me a lot of the phiosophy glosses since they're all scented and usually inspired by a food/drink. They also have a lot of similar colors, and some glosses have a texture similar to each other. This lip gloss is a sheer gloss with a hint of shimmer laced into it. It looks lovely over lipsticks/placed in the center of your lips as a highlight of sorts. Unfortunately, it is SO sticky, which I could overcome if...it didn't smell so strong! It smells like cotton candy, but very chemically at the same time. And it smells so strong! The taste isn't much better. I do enjoy the look of this lipgloss, but the feel and the scent are dealbreakers. I passed this along to my mom.
I actually bought one of these on a whim to keep my beloved makeup products safe while traveling (even though I keep them in my carry on, I still worry about my babies getting broken or shattered). I got the case with the purple lace detailing on it because it looked cute and I'm a sucker for lace. Inside the case, there is a big suqare part at the botton where I like to keep my pallettes/foundations/travel skincare and my headband for pushing back my hair when I wash my face. Above that, there are three tiers of long skinny rectangles on each side that stack on top of eachother when closed. There I keep my brushes/lipglosses/eye makeup/ect. I really like this case because it's cute, durable, and does the job. I've never had makeup break while in here. I also use this when I go to sleepovers to store my makeup in. All in all, it's just a great thing to have for traveling. If you're new to makeup, you could actually keep your entire collection in here to have it be portable. I have wayyyy too much makeup for that, but I may just keep my favorite in this so I can have it ready to go at the drop of a hat. I think I would buy this again, or at least another case by this brand, because it's inexpensive...and so cute!
