Axiology Lip-2-Lid Balmies
@axiology_beauty recently dropped a new product called (Lip-to-Lid) Balmies! They can be used on cheeks, lips, or eyelids! They’re of course super green, and 100% zero-waste. The shade range I have on are from the Cotton Candy Skies collection (3 pack) of Balmies and they’re STUNNING! The total Balmies range has 9 shades + 4 highlighters! I have such an appreciation for how Ericka creates her products so sustainably and incredibly mindful of the earth! As you can see, these are insanely EASY and beautiful they are! They are easily the coolest new sustainable beauty product, imo! AXIOLOGY - Lip-to-Lid Balmies Cotton Candy Skies

Why the Satin Lip Look Is My New Favourite?
Lipstick isn’t just a perfect accessory to my outfit. For me, it is not only a part of the “look”, but also a representation of the “mood”. And, while choosing the colour that feels correct certainly helps to convey the message, let’s not forget the importance of finding the right finish. Matte and glossy lip looks both had their times, but my favourite as of late is a satin finish. I’ve been using NARS - Velvet Lip Glide #Mineshaft the whole summer and here’s why it has won me over. Glides like a gloss I often use a lip balm first before applying lipsticks, especially the ones with a matte finish because they tend to feel dry. I would let the lip balm set for a few minutes, and then wipe it off with a cotton bud so that my lips are soft but the matte finish isn’t ruined by excess oil in the lip balm. However, this step is skippable for the Nars lip stain. Its formula contains a concentration of oils, generating a smooth-glide effect. With the plush, doe-foot wand, the application is so easy and smooth that I almost feel I’m using a lip gloss. Coats like a lipstick As you can see, Mineshaft is a bright red with a hue of yellow, a colour that’s suitable to wear in summer. It’s highly saturated, providing full coverage with just one glide. The opaque satin finish is long lasting, leaving my lips in a creamy texture without feeling dry or sticky. Soft yet strong This is both how I feel about Nars Velvet Lip Glide, and how it makes me feel. The satin finish gives out a subtle shine, but nothing too much. The colour is vibrant, yet not showy. The water lily flower and white tea extract infused into the formula provide antioxidant protection and deep hydration, so my lips are taken care of from the inside to the outside. These are the reasons why satin lip looks are the new trend - long-lasting colours, minimal shine, ultimate hydration... If you are looking for something that’s high-impact and low-maintenance, you know what to try on your lippy next!

Colourpop LUX Velvet liquid lipstick
I bought 4 colors. In the second picture, from the top to bottom: Air Kiss, Lucky Cat, Puddin’, Get Money. The second picture also shows you the true colors. I honestly think some colors are too bright for me. I’m more into clay colors or dirty rose. They all look grayish in the pictures on their website, which is mainly why I bought these. But they actually look very bright with a coral tone. If you like pure and bright colors, you can give them a try. COLOURPOP - Lux Liquid Lip

Best Matte liquid lip formula PERIOD
Because I have a good relationship with Dragun Beauty they were kind enough to send these over before launch so I can try and I LOVE THEMMM! The first 2 shades are quite light but with a nice lip liner they’d look amazing! They have that yummy vanilla/ cake batter kind of smell to them and they applied beautifully! Make sure to let them dry down completely or even pat them down with your finger to speed up the process. After I filmed this I ate a huge cheese burger with the black lip on and let me tell you I was SO SURPRISED IT DIDNT BUDGE 😻 not only is the color payoff amazing but the overall formula is perfection. I tend to get dry and crusty lips really easily even when I would prime my lips before using any matte lip product but these are true game changers for me. The leave my lips feeling like satin, no color transfer and best of all No Crusty Lips!!! These will be restocking soon and I promise if you’re a fan of traditional liquid lips then you’ll love these more than you know 😍 Make sure to use code REY when shopping for all your DB goodies 💜🔥 DRAGUN BEAUTY - DragunGlass Full Fantasy

Laugh Kiss Care- A quick love story
A fellow Makeup Artist by the name of Lauren Kaye Cohen launched her line of vegan, cruelty free, gluten free, and paraben free lippies and it’s a lovely lovely treat! I haven’t had the opportunity to try them all out yet but I do have the Wolf Moon Lip Sheen that I am obsessed with. I’m not a huge lipgloss fan personally but it is nice to throw this on over some lipstick for a little sheen and some hydration. The full list of ingredients is not available online, however her brand is free of BHT ( a cancer causing ingredient found in a lot of lip sheens and glosses) and chalked full of vitamins such as A, C, D, and E that helps hydrate and protect your pout. If you are looking for a great Indie US made perfect pout- look no further!

My (tiny) lip collection put to the TEST!
These are the lip stains and paints that I currently own. My collection is small because I don’t have a ton of opportunities to wear it being home all the time. 😆 I will review each from left to right. 1. SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick color-#96. Price-14$ I really like this one. It is a nice matte red lip stain. It does not have 100% staying power with eating and drinking, and it does transfer onto fabric very little even after setting. It’s very creamy, has a very subtle sweet smell and is not super drying to the lips. Also I thinks it’s the perfect red shade.🤗 2.LIQUE - Long-Lasting Metallic Liquid Lip color- REBEL Price-9.60$ This one is super vibrant and definitely lives up to its name of a metallic lip paint. Has strong staying power and almost zero transfer. It is a little drying and cracked looking once set. But you can apply a clear gloss for moisture, that can counter the staying power though...😕 3. OFRA - Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Color- Unzipped. Price- $20 Love this color but since it is just a liquid lipstick it will smudge and transfer. You can however set with translucent powder for an even more matte finish, or even setting spray to help it stay put. Super creamy , stays creamy and smells like coconut 🥥 to me! ☺️ 4. tarte - Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint Color- Front Row Price-$20 Also love this color, has serious staying power and no transfer. Very creamy to apply. Dries quickly, does look a little cracky upon setting but is not as drying as the metallic lip paint. 5. Hola NEON - Velvet Liquid Lipstick Color- DF Price $17 One of my favs despite the smell! It smells like pleather until it sets.... but it’s a beautiful mauve pink tone. Dries with a matte finish, has strong staying power, no transfer, and is less cracky than the Tarte lip paint. 6. MAYBELLINE - Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick Color- Corrupt Cranberry Price- $6.99 Not my favorite product. Smudges easy, doesn’t even look as VICID as it does in the tube. I find it super runny for a lipstick.... as it wears through the day it just looks like I just got done making out it’s just sooo weak I feel. The only time it works is to blot off most of the color after application for a “stained” look...
