Stila Glitter on the Go Liquid Eye Shadow Set

This product has been in the back of my mind for a while, but liquid products scare me! I wasn’t sure how much use I would get out of this since it is sooooo glittery but I ended up grabbing the Glitter on the Go set from Sephora for $25. This set includes 3 shades of the Stila Glitter and Glow long wearing liquid eye shadows in the shades Kitten Karma, Smoldering Satin and Rose Gold Retro. These shade names are adorable and pair really well with the colors. This outer unit i super cute, the white and metallic looks high end and has a vintage vibe.

Packaging

These little tubes are really cute!!! I love that the bottle itself is clear so you can see the shade and product amount. The mixed metals are so cute, keeping with the theme of a lot of still packaging that will incorporate golds, silvers, etc and it does clash at all, it looks super chic! Here’s a photo of the liquid eye shadows next to a Stila palette so you can get an idea of the size of each tube.

Stila Glitter on the Go set with Stile Eyes are the Window Palette (Mind)

Applicator

The applicator on this is a great size for my eye shape. It disperses product evenly and spreads the product around on the eye with ease.  If you have hooded eyes or small/deep set eyes, this might be a little more difficult because the applicator is kind of big. You could always transfer the product onto a small brush if you need something that is thinner or even to do detail work that needs to be precise.

Application

I place all of my powder shadows down first (transition, crease, lid) and then go in with the Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow. You don’t really want to blend around this product while wet because it will smear &  you don’t want to blend around when dry because it will have fall out- so I would recommend this being the last step with shadows. Once its on the lid you can work with the product gently to blend out, I just wouldn’t blend other powder products around this.

These go on extremely wet! They do feeling pretty heavy upon first application but that didn’t last very long. The dry down is kind of quick- not too long of a wait for this to dry, however I did use a piece of paper to fan my face after applying so that made it dry faster.

My first time using this product, I made bit of a mess- I applied very heavily and then immediately opened my eyes which lead this to smear and transferred above my crease.  Since then, I’ve got a way better handle on application, but this product is slick and can be tough to use if you don’t have a steady hand. Keep in mind practice makes perfect, so just keep trying until you get a handle of this. (If you are use to liquid eye shadow, you may not have trouble with this at all. I am just not familiar with liquid products like this so it took a few tries to feel confident applying).

Swatches

Wearing with Liner and Lashes?

Liquid liner apples well over this if you use something very inky/pigmented. I used Tarte’s Double Take liner and it didn’t look bumpy or weird which is great! Another time I used Tarte’s Sex Kitten Liquid Liner , which is a thinner and less pigmented consistency and you could totally tell. The Sex Kitten Liner just wasn’t bold enough over the glitter, it looked patchy and bumpy (which doesn’t happen on regular shadows) so definitely go with something very black and pigmented!

If you try and use a pencil liner over this product it might be tough because this does have fall out when dry. Rubbing something on the eye like a pencil liner will likely move the glitter off of your eye lid and make a mess. Liquid Liner would be an easier and cleaner application, at least for  me.

Wearing false lashes over the glitter was a breeze! I was worried, thinking the glue wouldn’t hold as well, but I didn’t have a problem at all! I did end up with glitter on my lashes though because of the fall out.

Kitten Karma

Comfortability

These are surprising comfortable! One of the biggest reasons I was on the fence about this product was because I assumed it would feel dry and crunchy. This product does feel heavy upon first application, but once dry it is super light weight. There’s no heavy, itchy, tight or overwhelming feeling. I haven’t had any irritation on my lids or my actual eyes!

Wear Time

The wear time on these is incredible! I applied this around 10am and it was still on and in place at midnight! The glitter was still vibrant and gorgeous at the end of the night and I was really surprised that it hadn’t transferred all over my face!

I’ve worn these multiple times since purchasing. They wear beautifully and I haven’t had major fall out during the day while working or running errands.

I did snuggle up to my boyfriend one time and he ended up with glitter all over his face, but it was the end of the day so is wasn’t a huge deal. You couldn’t tell looking at me because I still had so much glitter and pigment on my eyes, but you could definitely see all of the sparkle on his face.

Smolder Satin

Removal

This wipes right off with a makeup wipe, easy peasy. Since this is a liquid that dries down, and lasts all freaking day, I thought removing it might be tough- It wasn’t! I used my normal go to face wipes (Simple Cleansing Wipes) and this came off with no problem!

Tips and Tricks:

I would recommend applying to one eye and keeping it closed while it dries down. Once it is dry, you can open your eyes and start the other lid.

This does have fallout after its dried down! Try not to touch your eyes at all because the glitter will move when disturbed. If you do not touch your eyes, these will last for a while!

Overall

I am extremely surprised at how well these wear and just how easy they are to apply. I really love these a lot and I’ve worn them really often. I have received a lot of compliments on my makeup wearing this because ii is just so glittery and eye catching. I love all three shades in this pack, and I am really glad I grabbed these instead of one big one, just so I can switch up my looks. I would give this a solid 9/10 rating.

Has anyone else tried these? Let me know in the comments below! Also, what do you think of me rating the products 1-10 at the end of my reviews? I’ve never done it before but I love so many items so I think it would be a clearer indicator of my like or dislike in a product.

Tati Westbrook’s New Brand- Everything We Know So Far

Today was the big reveal of Tati Westbrooks brand, which has been long awaited by her GlamLifeGuru followers- me included. If you are unfamiliar with Tati Westbrook, she is a very popular beauty guru who films reviews, tutorials, and more beauty related content. Her Youtube channel (glamlifeguru) has a huge following.

On Monday, Tati mentioned that she was launching a brand, but left it very vague. Her video on Tuesday was a FAQ’s about the brand and went into some detail. Today, we found out the details on the brand- including name, products, pricing, etc. Let jump right into this!

Screenshot of Glamlifeguru Youtube

What is the brand name?

Halo Beauty. Tati named her line Halo Beauty and explained that she felt the name represented her and her style. She mentions the word halo being pure, like her brand will be. I totally agree that the word halo goes hand in hand with Tati and her views. She has an angelic quality about her and always promotes health, inner beauty and being a positive person. I think the name is really cute, easy to remember and of course all you Beyonce fans can now sing your heart out to both Queen Bey and Queen Tati… “let me see your haloooooo, ooooooo”

What products will be sold by this brand?

Halo Beauty launch will be for one specific product. That product is a Hair, Skin & Nail Booster. This is a vitamin that is ingested orally, 2 pills in the morning and you’re done!

Screenshot of Glamlifeguru Youtube

How does it work?

This product works to hydrate and strengthen your hair, skin and nails. These are taken daily and you will see results within 3 weeks.

What is the price?

Each bottle will be $39.95 and it will include 60 pills (a one month supply).

Where will it be available?

This will be available ONLINE ONLY, via Tati’s website- halobeauty.com. Please be mindful and do not purchase from anywhere but her site (people sell harmful fakes very often in the beauty industry so don’t fall victim to that.)

Screenshot of  Halobeauty.com

When will this be available?

This is will launching THIS WEEK on Friday 03/02 at 10am PST.

Who are the investors?

Tati is doing this brand 100% by herself. There are no investors or collabs.

Is this privately labeled?

No! Privately labels means that a company buys fully developed products and just adds their label. This is not the case with this brand, Tati created the products, the packing, labels, and everything. This is not up-cycled or rebranded product, it is custom created for the Halo Beauty brand.

Are there harsh products or chemicals?

No! This is free of harsh chemicals, fillers, and animal byproducts.

Is this cruelty free?

Yes! This brand is cruelty free, meaning it is no testing on animals.
Is this vegan?

Yes this is completely vegan! This was made with no animal products or byproducts!

One thing that was not mentioned was the ingredient list- this will be listed on the psychical bottle as well as on the website on Friday so you can view before purchasing.

Backlash

It has only been a few hours since the big reveal and people don’t seem to be very happy about it. So far, I am seeing a ton of negative feedback online saying that they ‘expected more of Tati”. The most common remark I am seeing is that people are disappointed its not makeup…. Honestly, this was Tati’s decision to start her brand this way. If you are familiar with her channel, you know she’s huge on skincare and haircare.

I want to see a makeup line too, but we all have to start somewhere. Launching a product is a ton of work, PLUS she uploads quality content 5 times a week. This brand will expand when the time is right.

My thoughts– Am I purchasing?

The appearance of Tati’s hair, nails and skin is always flawless so of course that makes me want to try this out. I value Tati’s opinion and I try a lot of the products she gives good reviews on, so I am hopeful that this will be a great product.

I will be purchasing this on Friday and doing a FULL review so that I can share my thoughts with you after using the product. Although I do love Tati, this upcoming review will be 100% honest! I will be documenting my skin, hair and nails over the three/four weeks to see if there is an improvement and if I will buy again. Stay tuned for that!

What do you guys think? Are you excited to try this or are you disappointed? Let me know in the comments below!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Mini Reds and Pinks Bundle (Love Sick Collection)

The Jeffree Star Cosmetics Love Sick collection dropped a few weeks ago and it went quick! The Blood Sugar Palette sold out 100,000 units in 3 minutes, which is absolutely insane! I wasn’t able to get my hands on the Blood Sugar palette (which looks beautiful) but I did grab the Mini Reds & Pinks Bundle and I am really exited about it!!!

I reviewed and swatched the Mini Nudes Bundle Vol. 1 that came out a few months ago and I absolutely loved it! I still wear a lot of those shades to this day and I haven’t run out of product in any of them. (See my previous blog post “Jeffree Star Cosmetics Mini Nude Vol.1 Swatches & Review” for more on that bundle) That post discussed the packing and pricing, which is the exact same for this bundle (except red) so I am not going to touch on that too much, just a quick rundown.

Pricing

This set is $52 for 8 mini Velour Liquid Lipsticks, which makes them $6.50 each. For a high end brand like Jeffree Star Cosmetics, this is a fantastic price. I know something over $50 seems like a lot for makeup but if you wear liquid lipsticks often this is definitely a great deal for 8 shades! The shipping was $5.95, which is typical for beauty products.

Packaging

The bundle come packaged in a really nice box which has individual slots to showcase the lipsticks. I absolutely love the attention to detail this company includes with their launches. This box is gorgeous, sturdy and overall makes the product feel even more high end.

Shades

Mini Reds & Pink Bundle includes 8 shades:

  • Doll Parts
  • Calabasas
  • Wifey
  • Watermelon Soda
  • Anna Nicole
  • Prom Night
  • Redrum
  • Unicorn Blood

Texture

All of these shades are the traditional Velour Liquid Lipstick formula- matte and opaque! These wear so beautifully on the lips. I would recommend a lip scrub first to remove dead skin before any liquid lipsticks (see my previous post “Prepping for Liquid Lipsticks” for more on extending wear time and comfortability with matte liquid lipsticks).

Swatches

I know these swatches are far from perfect, but I wanted to try something new by show these on the lips, instead of my normal arm swatches!

The timing of this post is pretty coincidental, being that Jeffree Star Cosmetics Instagram shared a photo of my swatches yesterday! I am over the moon that they saw my post and like it enough to repost. Here’s the screenshot of their page with my post!!!!

I am so beyond excited! I did these swatches pretty quick (and now I’m wishing I had taken more time to make it perfect and less messy), but I’m just so ecstatic that Jeffree Star’s team reposted it! I used each shade to write a letter, starting from the shade of the far left and working across the set.

Overall

These bundles are awesome. I’m a sucker for travel sized products in general so of course I’m drawn to mini Jeffree Star Lipsticks since they are my favorite Liquid Lipsticks. The colors are so unique, the formula is fantastic and the price isn’t overwhelming for the amount of product you receive. Hands down, I would recommend this to any red lipstick lover.

Has anyone else grabbed this bundle or anything from the Love Sick Collection? Let me know in the comments, Im so curious about the items I didn’t grab this time around!

Boxy Charm Unboxing: February 2018

Boxy Charm Unboxing is my favorite thing everrrrrr! I love this subscription service so far, I’ve been signed up for about 4 months now and every month I love the variety of products, plus the savings are unreal! The Boxy Charm subscription service is $21 per month. The value is always way over $21 so you really can’t go wrong with this subscription if you are a beauty lover! Each item below is listed with the retail price, at the bottom will show the total savings if you were to buy these individually. Lets jump right into this months Boxy Charm!

Naked Cosmetics Holographic Highlight Palette ($39.99)

This was definitely the big stand out item for Boxy Charm this month. I really love the packaging on this, give me holo containers on everything and I’ll be happy. The color selection is vast and so gorgeous. I see this being an amazing summer item to do a festival look or even highlight the shoulder with a pop iridescent color! I didn’t do swatches for this item, which I apologize for, but I ended up putting this is my current giveaway on IG (March 2018 giveaway). I do love this and thing its an amazing item to receive it a subscription box, I just know I wouldn’t get a ton of every day use out of it and my giveaway is holographic themed so it just had to go to lucky follower who will use it and love it! Side note: Holographic items photograph so insane with my beauty lights!

Crown Brushes Pro Brush Trio ($29.99)

I have used Crown Brushes in the past, so I am familiar with the brand. I was excited when I saw these in my Boxy Charm this month because the shape of the second largest one was exactly what I’ve been wanting to apply contour! I do minimal powder contouring, on my jawline, nose and cheekbones. The middle brush in this pack is the perfect size to apply contour to the cheekbones without going overboard! The white handles with the white to pink ombre brushes are super cute- they look great on my vanity!  I really love how soft these are and how they disperse powder products. I would have been happy with 1 brush, so receiving 3 is awesome!

Cover FX Veil Shimmer in Amethyst ($28)

I opened this up thinking it was a lip topper and I was really excited to give it a go.. then I read the label and it’s for your eyes!  I am not too adventurous with purples, blues, greens, etc. I’m more of a neutral color scheme kind of girl- with the occasional pop of color. This product looks so gorgeous and Cover FX is a great brand so I added this to my holo giveaway as well. I just feel like someone could use this frequently, whereas I probably wouldn’t.

Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil ($21)

I have used this brand once before, I had a beautiful rose gold highlight that came in a giant pan, was packaged beautifully and wore really well so I was excited to see another product from Vintage Cosmetics to try out. I can always use a back up black eyeliner, so I threw this into my vanity but I haven’t used it as of yet. I use pencil eyeliner every so often so I know I will reach from this eventually.

BellaPierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder ($15)

Loose powders makes me nervous. I really prefer pressed powders because I have more control over them. This does look like a gorgeous blue shimmery/glittery product that would make for a fun pop of color! Maybe I’ll give this a go this summer or throw it in with my more colorful makeup that I use when I do cosplay… This might even call for a Mermaid look just because this is such a intense shade of blue! Sorry for the weird photo on this one, it was difficult to get the company name and the powder at the same time.

Overall

The value is great on this box, even though some of these products wouldn’t be my go to every day items, I still think they are cool products and really versatile to create amazing looks! I am very pleased with the amount of products/ the value of this box being that I only paid $21 for all of this! If you were to buy these 5 products individually, it would be $133.98… that’s $112.98 in savings!

This box fits its themed perfectly. “Galaxy Glow” is a strong vibe with all of these far out products. Can’t wait to see what next month brings! What did you guys think of the February Boxy Charm? Let me know if the comments below.

Farsali Unicorn Essence Drops- Worth the Hype?!

I finally took the plunge and bought the Farsali Unicorn Essence Drops. If you aren’t familiar with this product, you must be living under a rock because this is ALLLLL over the internet. Pretty much all of the beauty influencers on IG and Twitter have been talking about this over the last year- whether they love it or hate it- they are talking about it. I was skeptical to grab this product, for a few reasons. I had watched or read multiple reviews saying this either did nothing, smelled terrible or was just hyped up on IG because all of those posts were sponsored. I was so curious that I actually added this to my Sephora cart a few times but did actually check out to purchase it because I was so torn on spending $54. Once I saw this was available in a mini size, I was sold! My curiosity got the best of me so lets dive right into this review!

Price / Quantity

This is available in two sizes, the mini (.34 oz/10ML.) for $20 and full size (1 oz/30 ML) for $54.

If you break down the product amount to the price, you do get more bang for your buck with the larger bottle, being that you are paying $1.80 per ML, (the mini is $2 per ML).

Packaging

The packaging on this is super cute. The bottle is heavy duty and really sturdy- although if this fell from a good distance, onto something really hard like cement, it might break…. maybe when its empty I should be a durability test and record it to see if it breaks?

The dropper is a great shape and pulls the product out of the bottle perfectly.  I love the purple and gold, the colors play well together and stand out on my vanity! The mini and large are packaged exactly the same except for size.

Smell

I heard so many people say this had a strong candy scent that they did not like, and since I can be picky with fragrance, I was really worried about this factor! The first thing I did when this came in the mail was rip it open to smell the serum.

This does smell like candy, being that is has a sweet scent, but it is definitely not overwhelming! I was expecting a strong scent, but in my opinion its fairly subtle. I actually really love the soft sugary smell of this product!

Texture

This is a liquid product that is applied with a dropper bottle. It is a serum, so don’t except something thick like your typical primer. The liquid is PINK!  I’m guessing so many people gravitated towards this product to begin with because of the color and name- people love pink and they love unicorns, put them together and you get a best seller- smart marketing Farsali. The ingredients in here are what really drew my attention, including antioxidant rich berries (goji berry, blueberry), which are great for your skin!

Application

This goes onto the skin like a serum, thin and liquid-y. When you rub this into the skin, it feels really nice and hydrating. This absorbs pretty quickly so that you don’t get any oily separation under your makeup. There is no residue or overwhelming sticky feeling to the skin when applied. This can be worn alone of layer under makeup, which is how Ive been using it.

I find my skin looks so much healthier when I wear this under my makeup. It applies so smoothly and looks refreshed. I really think my makeup has look the best it has in a long time using this.

Overall- Is it worth the hype?!

Yes! I will be repurchasing this in a full size as soon as my mini runs out (maybe even before!) I am beyond obsessed with this; I have used it every single day since purchasing! Highly recommend checking this out if you are looking to improve the texture of your skin or the look of your face makeup (foundation, concealers, etc.).

I wouldn’t say this replaced anything in my makeup routine, I am still using a pore filling primer- but I do think this helps the overall appliance of my skin so I am happy to add the extra step for a beautiful finish.

What are you thoughts? Have you ever tried this product, or the Rose Gold Oil that Farsali carries? Let me know in the comment below.

Ipsy Unboxing: February 2018

My Ipsy Glam Bag was delivered the other day and of course I ripped it open to share with you guys! If you are unfamiliar with Ipsy, it is a subscription service that sends 4-5 beauty products to your door every month in a little cosmetics bag. The products range from samples to full sized, as well as drugstore to high end. The Ipsy subscription service is $10 per month and it typically a great value for the products you receive! Let’s jump into the February Ipsy Glam bag!

Cosmetic Bag

This months bag is actually really cute, which I didn’t except since the bags aren’t always my cup of tea. The soft blush pink bag looks really stunning up against the bold black lace- very valentine’s day chic which is great for February!

Luxie Brush #249

Luxie Brushes are fantastic, if you haven’t used these before- go check them out! This double sided #249 brush is my favorite item from this month’s glam bag! I have been using this to contour my nose and I love it!!! I’m not huge on contour, but I do like a subtle dark edge on my nose, jawline and cheek bones. The thinner/flat side of this brush is the perfect size to lay the contour powder down; and then the other side works so well to blend the contour out! I love this brush so much!! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this brush on my IG stories, I shared this as a sneak peak.

Eva Dry Shampoo

I have used this brand’s hair care before but not this particle product. I love me some dry shampoo so I will be using this eventually, however I am so stuck on the Dove Volumizing Dry Shampoo that I’l probably wait until I run out of that before testing this out. The packaging on this is adorable, love the sunset colors!

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eyes Waterproof Concealer

I have used a variation of this in the past, the Bye Bye Under Eyes Illuminating Concealer, which I am a fan of, so when I saw this in my glam bag I was really excited. I love this formula, it covers dark circles so beautifully and really makes me look more awake! I have seen a lot of people saying they didn’t like how thick this product is, but if you apply it correctly, you will get crease free, full coverage under eye! I recommend dropping a tiny bit of this onto a small makeup brush and smoothing under the eye. Once the product is where you want it, blend out with a damp beauty sponge and then immediately set with powder. This might take a little extra time to apply, but it’s definitely worth it if you have heavy dark circles under the eyes.

Pacifica Min Beach Crystal Natural Mineral Eyeshadow Palette

These colors are really beautiful and paired well with each other so you can create quite a few looks out of these 5 shades! I love the packaging on this, super cute with the holo lettering and geometric designs. I have not used or swatched this since it is part of my March Giveaway on Instagram. If you are into this product, check out my IG to enter the giveaway!

Luna by Luna Highlight

This is a good sized highlight, the pan is small in diameter but it is really piled high in a dome shape. I’ve never used Luna by Luna before so I am interested on the wear time for this product, however I just have sooooo many highlights that I love so I’m not totally sure if I’ll be opening this or adding it to to giveaway pile.. I will keep you posted if I do test this out.

Overall

I really loves this months bag! The Luxie Brush and It Cosmetics Concealer are my stand out items this month- I’ve been using them every day since I received this bag! I am curious about the dry shampoo and highlighter too, so I’ll have to get back to you guys on those. Let me know if the comments what product you received this month. I love doing unboxing for you guys so please let me know if you love reading about them as much as I love posting about them!

Prepping for Liquid Lipsticks

Liquid lipsticks have taken the beauty industry by storm in the past few years. They are long wearing, pigmented and (sometimes) transfer proof which makes them ideal for all day events-. However, we know the dark side of liquid lipsticks, chapped lips.

There are ways to keep your lips from drying out throughout the day. One of the biggest factors is formula.

You want to find a liquid lipstick brand that isn’t too drying. Some liquid lipsticks will apply well but immediately suck the moisture form your lips leaving them looking cracked, chapped and full of unwanted texture. Not only will this be visually unappealing, it will also be uncomfortable.

My favorite liquid lipsticks are:

  • Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks
  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks

Besides formula, there are several ways to prep you’re lips for a smoother application.

1. Drink water!!! Your water intake is important for SOOOO many reasons. Water helps improve skin immensely, especially lips! Chapped lips need moisture, so make sure you’re drinking a ton of water daily!

2. Exfoliate!!! The best way to prep your lips before liquid lipsticks is to remove the dead skin by exfoliating. There are several ways to do so- my favorite ways are to either use a tooth brush or a lip scrub. (See below for how to on both methods)

3. SPF!!! We tend to forget to protect our lips daily, which is super important! Chapstick is obviously great to sooth chapped lips, but did you know its super helpful for sun exposure? Using a SPF on your lips is vital- so check to see if your lipsticks chapstick has SPF in it.

4. Lip Treatments!!! There are so many skin care products these days- even some specifically made for lips. My favorite is the Organic Pharmacy Eye & Lip Cream. It feels like lotion of your lips, which sounds weird, but it’s amazing! It moisturizes and soothers- plus it absorbed pretty quickly so there’s no residue left over. There are also a variety of lip masks, such as KNC Beauty Collagen Infused Lip Mask. (Sorry for the weird stripes on this photo my light is on the fritz.)

Exfoliant Methods:

There are a few ays to exfoliate your lips, my two favorite being a tooth brush or sugar scrub. You can make your own scrubs if you look into DIY recipes.

Tooth Brush Method: For this preparation method, you want to use a soft bristled tooth brush like a baby tooth brush! This is important: if you use a medium or hard bristled toothbrush, you can hurt your lips by scratching and irritating them! The wet soft baby bristles work wonders if you run over the lips gently. This will remove dead skin and plump your lips up since your are promoting blood flow.

Lip Scrub Method: This is my favorite method to exfoliate! I absolutely love sugar lip scrubs being that they are gritty enough to remove dead skin and flavored for a more pleasurable experience. There are a lot of sugar scrubs that can be licked clean off our your lips or wiped off. Lip scrubs are super easy and fast! You apply a liberal amount of scrub to your lips using your finger tips, rub in circular motions and remove with a wet paper towel or wash cloth. You can remove the sugar scrub with a makeup wipe, but a warm/hot towel will work better as it will help dissolve the sugar while you wipe.

There are also different textured lip scrubs. Pictured about is a Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Lip Scrub in Watermelon Gum (yum). It is super gritty and really scrubs the crap out of lips. Another great heavy duty Scrub is Tartes Lip Facial Lip Scrub which comes in a lipstick like container so its super easy to apply.

If you prefer something lighter, Hempz makes a lip scrub that is in a thick chopstick consistency with a less intense grit.

Please note: Be super gentle when exfoliating your lips, especially if you are new to it! It can feel a bit uncomfortable but it isn’t painful by any means. Do not rub too hard, tug at your lips roughly or anything that will hurt your skin.

Tips For Longer Wear Time with Liquid Lipsticks:

  • After applying liquid lipstick, try not to press or rub lip together.
  • Avoid oily foods. Oils will break down the product.

Overall

All of these tips & tricks should help your lips be more prepared for liquid lipsticks that will last for hours! What are you favorite liquid lipsticks? Let me know in the comments!
