I currently own 5 MAC matte lipticks in the shades; Viva Glam II, Whirl, Taupe, Persistence and Spirit. All shades are similar however I just adore the formula of the matte collection. All are darker shades of nude, some are more mauve coloured but each one stays on for a great length of time and has great consistency. I would agree that the product matches the price as they are great quality. My number one favourite is Whirl. The shade is somewhat a brown red, such a rich and deep colour i think it looks great with any dark brown/ gold eye looks. It glides on my lips like it is a creamy product but mattifies so quickly and does not dry it my lips. Both spirit and persistence are slightly lighter shades of whirl, both formulas once again superb in retaining moisture for your lips whilst giving the matte look. I do find that spirit is definitely a more dull toned lipstick, almost like the shade stone in the collection and i think for naturally medium skin tones it looks great however i would say on darker tones it would maybe look grey or washed out? But Its entirely your choice and we tend to make the product work for us so go for it! Taupe is a close second favourite, it is more brown and well, taupe! This shade looks great with a dirty rose eye look or again a dark gold eye colour and i often wear this as a everyday product because i find it suits my skintone very well. It is not too bold unlike the darker tones in Whirl but still shows off your lips fabulously! My most recent buy is Viva Glam II. I love that i ventured beyond my typical dark mauve/red brown shades and went for a lighter pinky beige shade. It is not actually listed as a matte shade but is the satin formula which is close to matte but not completely, it gives of a slight shimmer which i love to wear when going out with friends and I often where it to school when i'm extra fabulous, just because it gives your lips a little something extra to lift your look for the day. I do find with this product that some product transferred off when i ate food or had a drink but its not exactly hard to reapply so did not concern one bit! What I love about these lipsticks is that they are long lasting and do not smell of nasty chemicals like other makeup brands I own. Though they are expensive for a brand, they're popular, high quality lipsticks that give amazing colours to your lips.

Jeffree Star produces some of the better liquid lipsticks that are currently on the market. There are, of course, some downsides to the product which are very subjective and not all people might agree. The line offers a wide variety of shades; however, I wish they were available in stores so swatches could be done. That being said, I have not been disappointed in any shades I have ordered. The thin application makes these liquid lipsticks more comfortable during application and throughout the wear-time. They apply very opaquely and MOST of the colors are not streaky. Keep in mind that everyone will have a different experience with wear-time because saliva is unique; however, on me these liquid lipsticks last through non-oily meals and throughout a 7-8 hour work shift in a restaurant. Due to the long wear-time and comfort, these have easily become one of my favorite brands of liquid lipsticks. I deducted a star for several reasons. While they are very comfortable and long wearing, most of the lipsticks have a scent that is so strong it makes my eyes water. In my opinion, some smell strongly of chemicals and root beer and some just smell like paint. This is subjective because some people enjoy the smell but to me they are not appealing. Thankfully the smell subsides after it has dried. Another reason I deducted a star was because sometimes they are very hard to get your hands on. Often times the good shades are sold out; however, Jeffree Star is realizing this issue and overstocking products so this does not happen so I believe in a few months this issue will be completely resolved. Overall this is a great product with a wide variety of shades. They are comfortable and I do not believe people would be disappointed when ordering and receiving this product.

Lipstick. The simplest accessory that is always a good choice to compliment any outfit. When our lipstick looks great, we feel great! It's the ultimate confidence boost. Lately, liquid lipstick has been gaining lots of popularity due to its lasting power and high pigmentation. With so many brands to choose from, who has the highest quality? Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick! Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is superior to other popular brands, such as Buxom, in terms of the formula itself. When using Buxom’s liquid lipstick, it was extremely disappointing. The texture was similar to whipped cream and the lipstick failed to dry, causing lots of transfer throughout the day. With Kat Von D’s Everlasting lipstick, this isn’t an issue! The texture is very lightweight and it glides on smoothly. It also dries fairly quickly and stays in place throughout the day, even after eating and drinking. Upon purchasing my first shade of Kat Von D’s lipstick, I was very impressed! It was super pigmented which allowed me to use less product, it was easy to apply, it wasn’t messy, and it was very comfortable on the lips. In addition to the great quality of the lipstick, they also have a wide range of amazing shades that compliment every skin tone! This was one of the things that appealed to me when initially deciding to buy this lipstick because usually, it is hard to find a brand of lipstick that has a good range of shades for girls with deeper skin tones. Because of my amazing first impression of this product, I purchased four more shades. I wasn’t disappointed! The only negative thing about this product is the fact that it can really dry your lips out if you don't properly prep them before applying it. You should always get rid of any dead skin and moisturize your lips before applying this product to get the best results. However, over moisturizing can cause the lipstick to turn into a gloss, so you should be mindful of this when preparing to apply the lipstick.

Can we just take a minute to obsess over Marc Jacob's Lip Cremes?? When the hype first started about these new liquid lips it was expected that they would be your standard liquid lipstick. I was super excited about MARC JACOB'S liquid lipsticks because Marc always puts out amazing quality products. The liquid lip creme was not what I was expecting and the shade I received was Shush, Blush. I had an idea in my head that consisted of a matte finish and long wearing formula and that was not what I got. This product is hydrating, creamy and pigmented. The actual product does not dry to a full matte and feels hydrating on the lips and remains creamy. Once the product has actually had some time to settle the texture then becomes less dry BUT it's not transfer proof. I have found that by allowing it to dry and then blotting any remaining wetness it will help reduce the amount of product that transfers. You would expect this to completely come off once you drink, eat or talk but the reality is that the remaining wet product will come off but the pigmentation will not. You will be left with a soft and velvety finish and the color will remain. The color will last a for about 4 to 5 hours and will always feel hydrating.

My new go to liquid lip! I have been trying out liquid lips for months because I desperately wanted to love them, but kept getting disappointed due to the very drying effects, crumbling, and cracking. I decided to try this one out in Ulta, and wore it around the store for and I actually forgot I had it on, it was so comfortable. It dries down completely in about 3-5 minutes and stays put, without drying out my lips or crumbling. The color selection is a bit limited, currently, so I hope that they come out with more soon. I purchased Child Star, Queen B, Cool Girl (my favorite), and Who's Zooming who (a gorgeous navy blue). I can wear them all day with minimal touch ups. As usual, they do slide around when you eat something greasy or oily, but are waterproof. Th pigment is perfect, and does not streak when applying. I love, love, love these lips!

I have all 5 of the lipsticks and I love all of them! Alice (sheer shimmer) : this is such beautiful color! it is a sheer nude with pink shift which basically means its a sheer nude with a really pretty peachy pink iridescent. It is a great wearable everyday color or can be applied to the center of the lips to make your lips look fuller! definitely the most wearable shade out of all of them. Mad Hatter (metalized) : this is definitely my favorite shade out of all 5 of them! it is a stunning purple shimmer and the color is very opaque! It is such a unique color and if you only wanted to buy one lipstick I would recommend this one! Mirana (metalized) : this is a beautiful dark berry shade with a subtle shimmer to it but its not very noticeable on the lips. this and Iracebeth are the most opaque shades in the collection. It is the exact shade that Mirana (the white queen) wears in the movie! I will be wearing this a lot in the fall time! Iracebeth (comfort matte) this is such a beautiful red! it is a comfort matte so its very comfortable on the lips and not drying at all! this is by far the most opaque color out of all of them and who doesn't love a good red? Time (metalized) : time is a gorgeous navy blue with shimmer. its very unique and I kinda want to wear it every single day! The color is pretty opaque but not as opaque as Iracebeth & Mirana. the packaging is the same as the UD Gwen just with a beautiful brightly colored design. I overall 100% recommend these lipsticks! check out my review on the eyeshadow palette too! :)
