Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit

I got the Tarteist Lip Paint as my Sephora Birthday Gift, along with a tarte blush as well. I’ve used it a couple of times and I really like it. It has a bit of a peppermint smell and feel that really reminds me of Christmas despite the color not really matching. Tarteist Creamy Lip paint is a vegan full coverage lipstick that stays creamy throughout the day despite creating a matte look. Most matte lipsticks I’ve used dry my lips out to the point that you can see every wrinkle and imperfection, which really is not a flattering look. I didn’t have a problem with this lip paint as it stayed pretty creamy.

I was surprised at how easy it spread across my lips, despite the applicator feeling a bit flimsy ( I thought it was going to fall off if I applied too much pressure). The staying power was nice I only had to reapply after eating so that was great. It does transfer a bit so be careful against clothing and whatnot.

The color is a nice pinkish nude, that is great for any occasion. While it is a bit expensive ($20 per lipstick) I think it is worth the price and I am thinking about getting more colors like ‘So Fetch’ or ‘Lovespell’.

How you used Tareist Creamy Lip Paint? What did you think?

Indie Beauty; Botanical Lipstick *Cruelty Free*


2016-11-05-14-28-181 2016-11-05-14-28-53

I’ve wanted to try more indie brands lately, I do love the well know brands like Urban Decay and Rimmel London, but you kinda do see those plastered all over other blogs. Plus Indie Brands tend to be Cruelty Free which is what I have been trying to be more cautious of.

I decided to try out Skin2Spirit Botanical Lipstick. The lipstick is meant to Moisturizer your lips and is loaded with shea butters and moisturizing oils. I picked the color Cherry Plum because I felt it would go well with my skin tone which brightening my lips. While the packaging is not so great, in fact the top of the lipstick was messed up when I first opened it, and I don’t think I can fully extend the lipstick out without it breaking.

The Lipstick itself is really nice. It goes on very smooth and feels moist on my lips. The lasting power is just okay but I feel it would definitely need a sealer to stay on more than a couple of hours.

All in all I don’t regret the purchase, however I won’t be purchasing another lipstick.

E.L.F Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint Review

ELF GLow Lip TintHey Kittens,

So I took a little time off to just relax and de-stress, but I’m back and I brought a new lip product to review! I’ve recently made purchased a couple of products from E.L.F Cosmetics and of them is the E.L.F Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint. I was super interested in this because of this lipstick is suppose to react to your chemistry and give you a lip color that is perfectly yours.

‘This innovative lip tint reacts with the chemistry of your lips to deliver a personalized, perfect shade of pink! The ethereal hue gives a sheer flush of color that enhances the natural beauty of your lips. The gel-based formula glides on smoothly and is infused with Shea Butter to moisturize and nourish.’

So to be honest I did not think this would work well, but not only do I love it, it also hydrates my lips so well. The color it gives me is a sort of dark hot pink which surprisingly matches well with my skin tone and seems to just blend seamlessly on my lips. I keep this lip tint at work and I only have to re apply it once or maybe twice a work day. Also it does not stain coffee cups so that starbucks lid stays surprisingly clean and doesn’t look like a clown is drinking it.

I recommend this for anyone who is on a budget that needs a lip tint that compliments them.

See ya soon!
