Today, I am going to talk about these liquid Lipsticks from Wet N Wild. They were sent to me as part of PR package from Wet N Wild for the purpose of trying them out and letting you, my dear lovely readers, know what I think about them.
Lets now talk about the lipstick.
Colors: 928B Oh My Dolly, 920B Nudie Patootie, 923B Pink Really Hard
Price: Affordable. About $4.99 USD on the website.
Application: Apply smoothly, but the lighter colors apply a little bit patchy even with a second coat.
Pigmentation: very pigmented
Quality: Matte finish, smooth and very comfortable to wear.
Here is a quick swatch video on how they look on me.
Overall, these liquid lipsticks are not so bad. They are pretty affordable. Although I’m not sure if they are available in Canada as of yet, they are available on the wet n wild website. I am not a big fan of the lighter colors, but I am interested in trying out some of the darker colors; and when I do, I will keep you posted.
We have reached the last day of February meaning the end of Black History Month, but that doesn’t mean that we stop celebrating and acknowledging our history.
I am starting this new segment on my blog where I will be talking about a black business that provide products for women of color, whether make up, hair products, jewelry etc..
The first company I would like to talk about today is Juvia’s Place. Just a quick disclaimer: I am not paid to write this post and neither was I sent any product to review. I spent my own coins to get the palettes I’m about to mentioned and this is my overall honest opinion.
I know there has been a lot of controversy surrounding Juvia’s place. I have watched so many videos on youtube and many youtubers were not satisfied with the customer service department, stating that the representative was rude. Based on my experience, I didn’t have any issues from the time I placed my orders to the time I received them. The shipping time wasn’t long at all. I also love the fact they sent me emails letting me know the status of my orders. In order words, my customer service experience was great. My palettes came intact and were well packaged and there weren’t any broken eyeshadows.
I ordered both the Masquerade and Saharan palettes. I decided to skip on the nubian palettes and order the Masquerade palette because I feel that the Masquerade palette has a mixture of both nude and color eyeshadows. As for the Saharan palette, I ordered it because of the burnt orange colors.
Here are some swatches from the Masquerade palette
There are 16 colors in this palette and they all have a name. The eyeshadows in this palette are quite large. This palette cost $52 CAD that includes shipping.
And here are the swatches from the Saharan palette
There are 12 colors in this palette and they all have a name as well. This palette cost $47 CAD that includes shipping.
As you can see, the eyeshadows are pigmented, although some are more pigmented than others, and they swatch very well. Both palettes contain matte and shimmery eyeshadows.
That is all for this post. Let me know in the comments if you have any one of the palettes from Juvia’s Place and if you love them or not. Thanks for reading, until next time!
This post is a swatch and review of the highly talked about MeNow lip pencils. Right off the bat, the colors are so nice and pigmented. The colors were divided into 2 groups of 6, here they are:
Group 11. Color 050 which is like a peachy pink
2. Color 054 is like a pinkish nude
3. Color 058 is red
4. Color 051 is like a mauvy pink
5. Color 052 is peach
6. Color 059 is like a pink with red undertone to it.
Group 21. Color 060 is like a magenta or fuscia pink
2. Color 053 is a nude
3. Color 055 is a dark red
4. Color 057 is a true pink
5. Color 056 is a bright orange
6. Color 046 is a brighter pinkish nude
My thoughts about these lip liners is that they are great for the price that I paid for them… I mean… a box of 12 lip liners for only $1.51 CAD with no shipping is unheard of. As for the quality, they are soft enough and are easy to apply. I ‘m not gonna say that they are the best, but they are good enough. My favorites are the darker shades, because I find that they are easier to apply. My least favorite are color 053, 052, 056 and 046 because the application is a bit patchy. Would I repurchase them? No. Essence has some great affordable lip liners that I absolutely love.
Let me know if you guys have tried these lip liners and your thoughts on them. Thanks for reading…. Until next time!
I picked up these eyeliners during one of my trips to the States back in March. I was browsing the make up section at Five Below and I found these and I decided to give them a try. These eyeliners came in a set of 6 per box and each box cost less than $5.
I have never heard of this brand prior to purchasing these eyeliners. They apply very easily and are very pigmented. Here is a swatch along with their name:
Color 1 is called Gold
Color 2 is Gunmetal
Color 3 is Plum
Color 4 is Rose Gold
Color 5 is Black
Color 1 is Silver
Color 2 is Forest Green
Color 3 is Creamy Beige
Color 4 is Bronze
Color 5 is Teal
I absolutely love these eyeliners, not only for the price, but for how pigmented they are and they are waterproof. I plan on using them as both eyeliners and eyeshadows. Since I am not too familiar with the brand, I would like to know more about it. Let me know if you guys have tried any products from Profusion, if yes, did you guys like it, hate it?
Here is a swatch of the MeNow lippies that I purchased from ebay.
They don’t have names; however they are numbered
Color 1 is #015
Color is #003
Color 3 is #008
For $1.30 CAD each I find the packaging nice and neat. However they are the bottom-twist-and -push type of lippies. They need to be sharpen, so a jumbo pencil sharpener will do. Now, here is how they look on my lips:
All three lippies are creamy when first applied and they dry up to a matte finish. They do transfer a little, but not so drastically. I don’t intend to re purchase them because I don’t like the idea of having to sharpen them, and more of a liquid lipstick kind of gal. Let me know in the comment section if you have tried them or any lipsticks from ebay for that matter. If yes, did you like them or not?
That is it in a nutshell guys…. Thanks for reading!
