REVIEW: ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lip

ColourPop Cosmetics, the brand made famous by Instagram, has recently released their latest product innovation: Ultra Satin Lip. Before I get ahead of myself, let me give you some context. ColourPop is the self-described “fast fashion” brand of the cosmetics world and beloved by celebrities abound (I’d mention Kylie Jenner, but I don’t want to. So I won’t). With eyeshadows and lipsticks around $5 and … Continue reading REVIEW: ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lip

REVIEW: Bite Beauty’s ‘Best Bite Rewind’

I love Bite. Always have and probably always will, which is why I’m giving them a pass on releasing this kit. Don’t get me wrong. It’s fabulous, and I love it. I just feel that it’s a bit of a cop out, seeing as it’s the exact same kit they released last year. Hence the name Best Bite REWIND. Nice framing of the language there, … Continue reading REVIEW: Bite Beauty’s ‘Best Bite Rewind’

REVIEW: Sephora Favorites ‘Give Me More Lip’

I have to say, I was pumped when I first heard about this set. A mix of full-size and mini lippies of various brands from Sephora? I’m down. While $59 isn’t exactly pocket change, it’s actually a great value for all the product you’re getting. This set it already sold out online, so you’ll have to scrounge around in-store to see if any still exist. … Continue reading REVIEW: Sephora Favorites ‘Give Me More Lip’

REVIEW: Stila Cosmetics Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set

Another installation to the holiday kit reviews. Stila’s Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick has never been as wildly popular as other brands out ther (think Anastasia Beverly Hills or even NYX Cosmetics). So I thought I’d give this cute, little kit a try. I’ll put the emphasis on “little.” While this kit doesn’t necessarily offer any less product than others, they definitely didn’t glamour up … Continue reading REVIEW: Stila Cosmetics Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set

‘Hashtag’: The Makeup Store for Instagram-Famous Brands

Instagram has made many makeup artists famous, and it has also given many boutique brands a platform to show off their products. As I mentioned in a previous post, the makeup and haircare retailer, Ricky’s NYC, was opening a new location in NYC that focuses on makeup brands featured by bloggers on Instagram. It’s finally open! I made the pilgrimage and wanted to share the … Continue reading ‘Hashtag’: The Makeup Store for Instagram-Famous Brands

For the Love of Liquid Lipstick

If you follow any beauty Insta’s or have been hittin’ the beauty counters hard lately, you may have noticed that liquid lipsticks (particularly matte ones) are URRRWHERE (Translation: everywhere). What makes each different? Which is best? Which Spice Girl am I really? These are some the unanswered questions many of you have, and I’m here help. I’m Posh Spice, btw. gif courtesy of glamourmagazine.co.uk While … Continue reading For the Love of Liquid Lipstick

5 Times Millennials Influenced Beauty

Everyone throws around that term millennial like it’s candy falling from a piñata. Millennial this and millennial that. You might be sick of it, even if you yourself ARE a millennial. Particularly because millenials sometimes get a bad rap. Anyone aged 18 to 34 years old is considered a member of this “millennial” generation, and we’re (yep, you guys are my bretheren) typically blamed for … Continue reading 5 Times Millennials Influenced Beauty

Prime(r) Time

Face, eyelid, lash, and lip primers. Oh my! From my experience, I find a lot of women aren’t quite sure what to do with al these primers. Do I really need them? What do they do? Which one should I choose? As primers are a “relatively” new concept to many, it’s completely understandable that these foreign things might first seem like a mere gimmick brought … Continue reading Prime(r) Time
