MakeUp Haul & Lippy Reviews

Here are some things that I purchased at CVS and Rite Aid. Rite Aid was having a buy one, get one half off for Wet n Wildcosmetics so I decided to try out their new lipsticks since I've heard good things about them. I also got a new Revlon Mineralizing Powder and Wet n Wild bronzer. I really like the Revlon mineralizing powders, I already have one in "Suntan Matte" and I love that they add a nice subtle glow to your face sine they have a small hint of shimmer. I like to set my makeup with it but I've been looking for another powder to set my makeup with for a matte look. I'm open to any suggestions you ladies might have.

So here are some swatches and reviews of the lippies I purchased. I also bought a lipstick from Revlon, Brucci and Rimmel. I've included reviews for them also. Hope you find these helpful.

from left to right: Ravin Raisin, Bare it All & Just Peachy (all by Wet n Wild); Blooming Liliacs by Brucci, Vintage Pink by Rimmel, Berry Haute by Revlon

swatches (without flash)
I am wearing Just Peachy in EOTD & Tutorial: Gold Rush.
I'm wearing Vintage Pink in Aventura Concert!
I'm wearing Berry Haute in My Review for Twilight Saga: Eclipse

And now the reviews..I did them by brand.
"Ravin Raisin", "Just Peachy" & "Bare It All" by Wet n WIld:
pros: goes on smooth, good color payoff, long-lasting
cons: can feel a little dry but this is easily fixed by using a lip balm before applying the lipstick, didn't like the fact that lipstick doesn't go all the way down in the tube

"Blooming Lilacs" by Brucci
pros: true to color, creamy
cons:  fades quickly

"Vintage Pink" by Rimmel
pros: application is super smooth, cute packaging, lipstick goes all the way down in the tube so there's no chance of it getting smushed lol, long lasting, nice scent
cons: none so far

"Berry Haute" by Revlon
pros: smooth application, very creamy, pakaging looks high-end, great pigmentation, long lasting
cons: none so far

I finally made a watermark for my photos that I can use regularly. I want to thank PiinkCupcakez for all her help. She gave me the steps via Twitter which was really nice of her. Isn't it great how everyone helps one another?

  2. I really like the bronzer, I use it to contour and it it's easy to work with and it's not orangey at all.
