Hey lovies! I don’t know about you but I love bright colors, especially lip colors. Recently I picked up some items I am really excited about and they are all bright!
I was in need of some inexpensive, but good quality makeup brushes. Something I can throw in my makeup bag for on the go. I don’t know what it is but I have been having the worst luck with finding some that didn’t snap off after cleaning them or that shed. I was browsing at Ulta and came across these pretty brushes! You guys they feel amazing, they are so soft but not too soft where it feels like it isn’t applying the makeup right and the quality is amazing, I love the rubber feel of the handles! Plus the colors are beautiful. I got this set to start with because I just wanted to feel them out for a bit. Then I got these extra brushes separately, the sculpting brush and the brow groomer. I will be picking up more! I love that they are from YouTube Beauty gurus Samantha and Nicola Chapman, because they understand and know what us gals love when it comes to inexpensive, great quality make up brushes. Then for my birthday a friend gifted me the Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lipstick. These matte lipsticks are long wear and go on smoothly and don’t give the drying feeling that most matte lipsticks give when you don’t put any balm underneath. Of course once I tried it I went and bought some more colors to add to my collection, here are the swatches:
Ultra Matte Lip: 1. Highball | 2. Bad Habit | 3. Mars | 4. Tulle | 5. Ouiji | 6. Drive-In | 7. 1st Base | 8. Lychee
Then I got the matching pencils (which the website recommends which pencil color goes with what lipstick color and one pencil can combine with more than one lip color) so I got:
Lip Pencils: Trixie, Grind, I Heart This, Fetch, LadyI was really happy with all the colors I got. Then I ended up picking up one of my favorite mascaras, the Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I go the sample once in a beauty box subscription and I cannot let go of this mascara, I used it all up! It volumizes my lashes so much without having to put on fake lashes, and if I do put on fake lashes, they pop even more. It’s such a great mascara and doesn’t clump up, I think it’s because of the hour glass wand shape that also helps with the volume. It truly is one of my favorite mascaras next to my drugstore brand the Maybelline Lash Blast.
I absolutely love all the colors, and I don’t know about you, but it gets me excited for the spring time to start popping these colors on my lips. What are your favorite bright lip products? Or do you have a favorite matte lipstick brand?
