LOTD #12 Maybelline Vivids Shocking Coral

Hey all!  My MAC order is coming today.  Well, it’s at my house and I’m sitting at work.  I’m super excited.  Can’t wait to try everything out.  I have a blush obsession.  What is your favorite MAC blush?

Oops!  Didn’t know that picture was so blurry.  Maybelline Vivids Shocking Coral is my lip of the day.

It looks a lot more coral in the swatch.  It really looks pink on my lips.  I like these Vivids lipsticks.  They’re so bright and colorful.

Hope you all have a great weekend.  I’ll share my MAC haul with you soon.

LOTD #11 Maybelline Color Whisper Coral Ambition

I’m so excited.  I just placed an order at Macy’s for some things from MAC’s Alluring Aquatic line.  They’ll be my first real MAC purchase.  Stay tuned for swatches.

It’s just a nice light coral shade.

I don’t like pale colors on my lips.  They never look as nice as they do on other people.  Oh well!

LOTD #10 Starlooks Endless

Starlooks - Endless

Starlooks – Endless

I received this Starlooks lipstick through their subscription box.  I’m a little confused by this product because the packaging calls it Infinite Lip Color and it has the Natalie Corona signature on it too.  It’s a satin and it’s in the color Endless.  If you look at Starlooks website it sure looks like the same product is now just called Longwear Lipstick.

It’s really sheer when swatched.  It seems to drag a lot too.

I do like the color though.  It is sort of a peachy shade with a gold frost.  It really reminds me of Nars Orgasm.

LOTD #9 CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm #215 Watermelon Twist

FYI, I’m just randomly picking lip products out of my drawer.  Fate is giving me all watermelons!

Today’s lip is CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in #215.  #215 is Watermelon Twist.  I know this because I looked it up on CoverGirl’s website.  I don’t know if the outer packaging stated this somewhere or not.  The product doesn’t show anything other than two numbers on the end.  One doesn’t correspond to anything on the website, so I’m going by the other.  Which turns out to be Watermelon Twist.  I like names on my packaging, how about you?

It’s one of these chubby pencil products.  It’s nicely moisturizing.

CoverGirl says they are:

a balm fortified with shea and mango butters for a smooth look with a hint of color.

I have to tell you guys, this stuff had terrible staying power.  I put it on at 8:30 am.  I looked in the mirror at 9:10 am and there was no trace of it left.  None whatsoever!

LOTD #8 Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Wild Watermelon

I’m really late on the bandwagon for the Revlon Lip Butters.

I’ve been snatching these up from the clearance section at K-mart.  I don’t know why they’re marked down, but I’ve been picking them up for $2 or $3.

This shade is Wild Watermelon.

I really enjoy the formula of these for everyday wear.  They are light, moisturizing and seem to last a relatively long time.

LOTD #6 & #7 – Mac Lustering & Mirabella Daydream

Oops!  I forgot to post my lip of the yesterday.  Can you believe that?

So yesterday I wore Lustering from Mac.  It was another of those samples that I talked about from The Body Needs.

Here’s the swatch:

It’s super pretty, but did have poor wear time.

And this is today’s lip.  It’s called Daydream by Mirabella.  It’s called a Colour Sheer.  It looks like it’s no longer available on the website, but they do have this color.

As the name says it is sheer.

It adds just a wash of color to your lips.  It’s very comfortable to wear and feels moisturizing.

Lip of the Day LOTD #4 ModelCo Satin Lip Couture Luella

 

 

ModelCo Satin Lip Couture - Luella

ModelCo Satin Lip Couture – Luella

This is ModelCo’s Satin Lip Couture in Luella.  I got this in a Lip Factory box a while back.  It doesn’t look like it’s available anymore as I can’t find this line on ModelCo’s website.  They do however have a line named Lip Couture (without the satin) that states it is a high shine lipstick.  I think it may be similar.  I like that the packaging has the little mirror build in!

The swatch looks pretty dark, but I feel that it sheers out when applied to the lips.  This color is more of what I think of as a mauve.

It’s not exactly a very summery color, but it’s one I gravitate towards because it has the same undertones as my natural lip color.

In case you’re wondering I’m wearing Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara in the above picture.  When I uploaded it I was like, “Holy lashes!”  LOL

Lip of the Day LOTD #3 Mac Lovelorn

 

 

A few months ago I purchased some Mac samples from a website called The Body Needs.

At that time they came in little tubes like this.

I understand now they’ve changed to a clamshell for their samples.

Sorry for the bad pictures below, the light is terrible in my house today.

I can’t get my camera to focus on my mouth, so you get a face shot today 🙂

Lip of the Day LOTD #2 L’Oreal Coulour Riche leGloss 155 Saucy Mauve

It’s Friday.  I’m sorry, today’s lip is kind of boring.  I was feeling lazy.

 

L'Oreal leGloss Saucy Mauve

L’Oreal leGloss Saucy Mauve

This is L’Oreal’s Colour Riche leGloss in 155 Saucy Mauve.

L’Oreal says it provides:

Extreme Shine.
Supreme Creaminess.
Ultra-hydrating Argan Oil & Omega 3.

I didn’t know it had Argan Oil until just now.  I don’t feel that there is any stickiness at all to this gloss.  It does in fact feel like the texture of an oil when you apply it.

L'Oreal leGloss Saucy Mauve

L’Oreal leGloss Saucy Mauve

I just looked up the definition of mauve and it says a moderate purple, violet or lilac color with more grey and blue undertones.  Saucy Mauve does not look mauve to me.  It’s more of a rusty color.  As you can see in the above swatch it does have some shimmer.  When looking at the tube I thought they were gold shimmers, but when I wiped the swatch off my hand they were left behind and they appeared to be iridescent.

This is a really natural looking color on my lips.  It’s highly glossy!

 

The Body Needs - Frosted Coral

Lip of the Day LOTD #1 The Body Needs Frosted Coral – NEW SERIES

I’ve decided to start my new blog off with a lip of the day (LOTD) series.  I’m using it as motivation to wear more of the lip products I have in my stash.  I’ll try to post most days with a picture and a swatch.  I’m not good at determining wear time (I snack too much during the day!) so I probably won’t mention that unless I notice something incredible.

Bear with me as I try to figure out the best way to take pictures.

Let’s start!

The Body Needs - Frosted Coral

The Body Needs – Frosted Coral

Today’s lip features Frosted Coral from The Body Needs.  This product is called a Lip Luster.  According to The Body Needs it is:

Soft, silky and not sticky! A slight stain remains after the long kiss … pamper your lips!

It is quite soft and feels moisturizing on the lips.

The Body Needs - Frosted Coral

If frosted lipstick makes you think of old ladies and the eighties this might not be for you.  However, I find it to be quite flattering.  I think it would look beautiful on darker skin tones too.

I would describe the color as a a light coral with a pink frost.
