Best & Worst of Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 Lipsticks – Beauty Article

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 Lipsticks ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes five shades from the KISSING formula and five shades from the Matte Revolution formula for a total of 10 new shades. They’re now sold in refillable packaging and can be purchased as refills, too, though I haven’t seen the case sold separately. Shades like Glowing Jen and In Love with Olivia show the KISSING formula at its best–creamy, luminous color that’s comfortable and flattering to wear, while Angel Alessandra…

Best Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palettes of All Time (Updated: July 2019) – Beauty Article

The Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palettes have started to stack up, and I thought for Saturday’s round-up, I’d look back at past palettes released by the brand–both limited edition and permanent–and see how they’ve performed overall. They’re some of the palettes I find myself reaching for if I need something to pair with one-off eyeshadows (say a few single, super metallic eyeshadows or some cream eyeshadows) or for fun. I’m very excited about the mini 15-pan palettes (Sunrise), and I hope…

Best & Worst of ColourPop Lite Stix – Beauty Article

Colour Pop Lite Stix   ColourPop Lite Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is one of the newer formulas released by the brand; it’s a cream highlighter in a stick format available across eight shades. There’s definitely lots of room for some more variety in the shade range, as most shades are on the golden, warmer side of things, and knowing ColourPop, I’m sure that plenty more shades are in the works! Per the brand, they’re intended to be most pigmented…

Best & Worst of Pat McGrath BlitzTrance Lipsticks (Summer 2019) – Beauty Article

Here’s a quick recap on the nine new shades of Pat McGrath BlitzTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) that launched earlier this month. They’re available in a new finish, creme, with a “fierce flash of shimmer” (as opposed to the more glittery/sparkly BlitzTrances we saw originally), so the shimmer is finer, while the finish has some luminosity and a creamier, very pigmented base. 01. 01. Flesh 3 Pat McGrath Pat McGrath PPermanent. $38.00/0.13 oz. … This is only a snippet of…

Best & Worst of MAC Electric Wonder Collection – Beauty Article

Here’s a brief summary of how the products from the new MAC Electric Wonder Collection reviewed!  It’s a typical release from the brand with hits and misses, and as it features more neutral hues, it may be very redundant for some.  The item I enjoyed the most was the Ignite Wonder palette, which had a creamier, smoother feel than most of MAC’s powder blushes.  Rock Starz is also a pretty gloss if you enjoy MAC’s formula (I do!). Did you…

Best & Worst of Kaja Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer & Matte Eyeshadow Trios – Beauty Article

Kaja Beauty Shimmer & Matte Beauty Bento Eyeshadow Trios ($21.00 for 0.09 oz.) are new for summer! Each trio contains two matte eyeshadows and one shimmer shade, which is in contrast to their original, all-shimmer trios. It’s a pleasure to report that all four trios performed well, and they performed consistently with the original shimmer-only trios!  The mattes were incredibly silky and smooth but weren’t powdery or prone to fallout, which ensured they maintained pigmentation but were still blendable.  The…

Best & Worst of Fenty Beauty Poutsicle Lipsticks – Beauty Article

Fenty Beauty Poutsicle Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to have “bold” color with a “juicy, satin finish.” They’re bright, bold, and fairly pigmented (some being opaque, a couple being a bit under) with a smooth, creamy consistency that feels like a cross between a lipstick and a lip balm with a touch of tackiness but feels quite lightweight on. They have a bit of slip, so those who may find feathering to be a frequent issue may still…

Best & Worst of Ciate Marbled Metals Metallic Glitter Eyeshadows – Beauty Article

Ciate Marbled Metals Metallic Glitter Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is supposed to be “highly-blendable” with “full-metal coverage” that has “long-lasting, three-dimensional shine.” They are recommended to be applied with “fingertips for effortless, one-swipe application. They were intensely pigmented with a smooth, more cream-powder consistency that applied well with fingertips but also did nicely with eyeshadow brushes. I tried them wet as well, and it didn’t make a difference–I’d say it stretched the pigment and made them go on ever-so-slightly…

Best & Worst of Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Collection – Beauty Article

Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Collection is for glitter lovers first and foremost (duh!).  The 24/7 Eyeliners and Hi-Fi Lip Glosses were my favorites to work with, as they were pretty true to form and consistent with how they’re marketed.  The Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners are fun to use as top coats over your favorite eyeliner or eyeshadow, and they’re a finer, smaller particle sized glitter compared to the Heavy Metal Glitter Gels, so they were less irritating for me…
