(Yeesh, I wrote this two months ago… I never uploaded it, though, I took Swerve and Poison with me on a trip, and it, along with some of my nice makeup, got stolen/lost at the airport. =/ Absolute bummer. I’ll have to order another one soon. So, slightly updated post, just ignore the lack of Swerve and Poison)
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a makeup review, much less a ColourPop review! In spite of their rapid-fire releases as of late, I’ve held back. Nothing too new here, and some even discontinued, as a matter of fact. For shame! Onward.
Aaaahaa!! I hardly ever review something while it’s still sorta new, so this is a big “huzzah” moment for me!
Alright, quick background in case if you haven’t heard it yet: Milani released these limited edition liquid lipsticks back in late 2015 as exclusives to Walgreens, and they were sold out before a lot of people had a chance to get them. The original shades are now discontinued, but for Spring 2016, they released a whole new 18 shades, a few being dupes for the old ones. I grabbed five of em.
Liquid lipstick is certainly the trend nowadays, and I’m surprised by how many budget friendly options have appeared! As someone who loves lipstick but hates constantly reapplying after leaving the big red “Zovesta Has Been Here” sign on every glass, liquid lipsticks are something I thought I’d dig. Not so much at first, after sampling a few different formulas. Now? It’s safe to say they’ve taken over my lipstick wardrobe.
Liquid lipsticks are, in short, lipstick you apply like a gloss that dries down to a budge-proof, or mostly budge-proof finish, and are normally matte. Personally, I’d like to see a liquid lipstick that has a glossy finish and is budge-proof, but that’s probably just a little impossible! Nevertheless, the matte finish is only too fashionable nowadays anyway (one of these days, the frosty lips trend will come back, and when that day comes, I’ll be waiting…).
So, seeing as how much I love this new trend and comparison posts, here’s a round-up of every liquid lipstick I own, and a comparison between them!
I don’t know how many of you know about Glambot – if you don’t, I’m here to educate you, son! Glambot is my latest addiction; I’ve got it bad, and that ain’t good. Glambot is, in short, a used makeup site. That might send you running for the hills, but I implore you to just wait and hear me out. Before doing any kind of review on this site, I purchased fairly extensively from it, and researched it heavily.
Sorry for that brief delay, a friend was coming to visit and I didn’t have anywhere near enough posts queued up. Onward! The original title was “The Disconnect Between Beautiful Cartoon Girl’s Makeup and a Beautiful Star’s Makeup”, but decided that this title was a little easier to swallow.
I actually draw quite a bit, although not as much as I should nowadays, and I have animated short scenes (nothing fancy). As it is, I have a great interest in cartoons, how they’re timed, set, written, animated. The old cartoons are my favourites to study, and Looney Tunes in particular.
What I find really entertaining is cute cartoon girls. I really like them. The classics like Red and Betty Boop and the more modern Jessica Rabbit and Holly Would alike. What humours me is how most of their makeup would be considered tacky! Let’s look at some cute cartoon girls and see what they keep in their purses.
Disclaimer: I’m entirely aware that these are drawn by people, thousands of times, and thus the designs need to be kept simple! Nobody has time to draw 50 lashes moving smoothly thousands of times, but this post is meant to be a bit cheeky, so take it as such.
I’ve discussed with you before how much I hate lipgloss, and during that time, I also said that I would be reviewing a boatload of lipglosses soon. I never did! Well, let’s recap: I hate lipgloss because it’s sticky, heavy, takes off my lipstick underneath, and isn’t opaque enough to wear on its own. In spite of this, I have somehow have collected about a dozen lipglosses.
