New Lipsticks and Other Drugs

posted on: November 19, 2012

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.

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.
