ColourPop x Becky G Traviesa Lip Duo Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Traviesa Colour Pop Traviesa Lip Duo ($11.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes a deep purple matte, liquid lipstick and a deep purple lip pencil. The liquid lipstick was workable on its own, while the lip pencil was best paired with the liquid lipstick rather than worn as a standalone product (as some like to do). The liquid lipstick layered over the lip pencil definitely improved the overall application and opacity of the end result. We hope you’ll consider supporting Temptalia by…

ColourPop x Becky G Payasa Lip Duo Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Payasa Colour Pop Payasa Lip Duo ($14.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a matte, liquid lipstick and matching lip pencil. The two performed similarly, so unfortunately, the liner didn’t entirely solve the liquid lipstick’s problems when the two were used together. Both had good coverage, but not opaque in one layer, and they did not apply as evenly as they should have. The two together were better than either alone, but I’d opt for a better lip pencil (something creamier and…

Holiday 2019 Anastasia Holiday 2019 Lip Gloss Holiday Vault ($65.00 for 1.6 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of 10 full-sized Lip Glosses. Two shades are cream-based, while the other eight have shimmer to some degree. Four shades are new, which left six as repromotes (mostly recent releases).

ColourPop Hey Big Spender Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Hey Big Spender Colour Pop Hey Big Spender Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) includes a satiny, blue-based red lipstick with a matte, very blue-based red lip pencil. When layered, the end result was more semi-matte and seemed about as cool-toned as the lipstick was on its own. Both shades were quite pigmented and long-wearing, while the lipstick was–unsurprisingly–more comfortable to wear on its own and was somewhat hydrating. We hope you’ll consider supporting Temptalia by shopping through our…

Put on the Ritz Colour Pop Put on the Ritz Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) includes a deeper pink with a cream lipstick paired with a more mid-tone, warmer pink pencil liner. The lipstick layered well over the lip pencil, but the color of the lipstick dominated (unsurprisingly) while the pencil mattified the finish slightly. Both products performed consistently with past releases within their respective formulas; they were both pigmented and long-wearing, and the lipstick applied well while…

ColourPop Go for Bold Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Go for Bold Colour Pop Go for Bold Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) is aptly named as it is a richer, deeper set of burgundy hues. The lip liner was a little drier and less pigmented, so it worked better for getting crisp edges or adding a layer of product for the lipstick to grab onto, but it had some unevenness on its own. The lipstick was fantastic, and it didn’t need a liner underneath it to keep…

Strike It Rich Colour Pop Strike It Rich Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo that features a peachy, satin-finish lipstick and a peachy, matte lip liner. The two were were very similar in color with the liner leaning slightly warmer, browner, and the lipstick leaning a little rosier, so the two combined was a semi-matte, deep peach with moderate warm undertones. We hope you’ll consider supporting Temptalia by shopping through our links below.…

Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices Set Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Sweet Little Vices Urban Decay Sweet Little Vices 4-Piece Mini Vice Lipstick Set ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition foursome that includes all new shades, and the twist on these is that each is scented and flavored differently from the regular Vice range. As much as I love the Vice range, these four were a disappointment. Only one of the four applied decently, but the other three were misses based on how they sat on lips–not the…

I’m curious if any of these shades will be brought into the permanent line next year; they did that with the prior holiday releases but not all shades. Depending on your natural lip color, these may look more similar than dissimilar applied, as it is a sheerer gloss formula. I was…

Normally, a full-sized lipstick (with holder) retails…
