CoverGirl 330 Divine Lipstick

CoverGirl’s Divine lipstick is a girl’s lipstick. It’s perfect blend of pink and purple is a match made in heaven that is flattering on most.

I have yet to see it look unflattering on someone.

I think a pinky purple lipstick is an asset to your lipstick collection. It’s perfect, especially if you don’t care for pink lipstick or you think that purple lipstick is an abomination and should be banned just too much for you.

The first pinky purple lipstick I ever bought was Berry Haute by Revlon. I really wanted Up the Amp by MAC, but I was on a college student budget. (I’m still on a college student budget, but I digress.) Berry Haute is a spot on dupe for Up the Amp,  so I got that instead for about half the price.

I couldn’t find Berry Haute in the Bahamas; I could only find Berry Couture. When I went to the U.S. for vacation earlier this year, instead of repurchasing Berry Haute, I decided to get Divine. It’s not a spot on dupe for Up the Amp, but it’s pretty close.

As you can probably tell by now, I’m wearing it in the photo above and below.

I can’t seem to find Divine online at most beauty/drugstores. Divine used to be apart of the Lip Perfection Collection, but it appears as if it has been added to the new Colorlicious Collection, and is now called Divine Wine.

MAC Girl About Town Creme Lipstick

MAC Girl About Town Creme Lipstick

I tripped and fell into the MAC store. I didn’t mean to. I did not.

I was in the downtown Nassau, Bahamas area so I decided to go into the MAC store just to “look around” and I ended up purchasing a lipstick in the shade “Girl About Town.”

“Girl About Town” has an amplified cream finish and is described as a bright fuchsia with blue undertones. The texture of this lipstick is very smooth. I find that although I think you can find MAC dupes, they’ll never feel as good as MAC creme formulas.

This lipstick is also long lasting. I wore it to work yesterday and it stayed on for about 6 hours. It didn’t make it past lunch though because your girl goes HAM.

Below is a swatch for “Girl About Town” (bottom), which retails for $15 can be of course purchased at MAC or online at macy’s.com. If you’re in The Bahamas like I am, there are MAC counters downtown Bay St. and in John Bull (Mall at Marathon). It is $15 there as well.

New Lipsticks and Other Drugs

Lipstick and other Drugs

Buying new makeup bits makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. These goodies were bought from drugstore.com, one of my favorite online stores to buy makeup and hair products.

I did not take individual pictures of the yes to cucumbers hypoallergenic facial towelettes or the milani eye tech liquid liner, but I’d give them 4 and 3 stars, respectively. The towelettes are very soft and take off makeup really well. I sometimes use them when I’m too lazy to wash my face and they get the job done! Shhh don’t tell anyone. (Please wash your face before you go to bed.)

The milani liner is not that good at all and I would not recommend you buy it. I believe the key to using this product is to hold the applicator to the side, that way you can actually get the product onto your lid. Otherwise, it does not work.

revlon ardell eyelashes

The photo above features two of my favourite false eyelashes: Ardell Lashes in 105 (left) and Revlon Beyond Natural Professional Lashes (right). I wear the Ardell lashes when I want a more dramatic look, that is, when I’m going to the club or to a party and I wear the Revlon lashes for an everyday look because they look very natural.

CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer

I decided to give the CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer a try after hearing one of my favorite makeup YouTubers, lilpumpkinpie05, rave about it. The colour I got was “ebony bronze” and I use it to contour my cheeks, jaw and forehead (watch this video at 3:06 to see what I mean).

Rimmel Kate 04, Revlon Berry Haute, Covergirl Euphoria

Now for the fun stuff! The lipsticks I purchased are Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in colour number 04, Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in “Berry Haute“, and CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in “Euphoria”. I love all of these lipsticks; they’re already apart of my favourite lipstick collection because I don’t really but lipsticks unless I’ve done my research on them. They go on really easily and colour payoff is great, especially for the price!

Below are some swatches; The first one is not photo’d above: it’s Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in “Va va violet”. To the right of that is the rimmel kate 04 followed by berry haute and euphoria (I have on euphoria in this video). As you can see “va va violet” is pretty similar to “rimmel kate 04” (which is also similar to the Azalia Banks MAC lipstick “Yung Rapunxel”). These are all dupes for each other so there’s no need to spend extra money if it’s not necessary (These were on sale when I bought them so that’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it.) Oh! Berry Haute is a dupe for MAC’s Up the Amp.
