LIMECRIME PERLEES LIPSTICKS REVIEW & SWATCHES (ALL 10 COLORS)

unspecified-56

Hey Guys,

Today I’m going to review and swatch all 10 shades of the Limecrime Perlees metallic lipsticks 💄

These are described as a comfort-wear creamy metallic matte lipstick with a full coverage color and a soft sheen of metallic. They retail for $18 and can be bought right here.

unspecified-75

Starting of with the packaging I think we can all agree that these tubes are absolutely stunning! I don’t think I’ve ever seen prettier packaging before, the floral pattern is gorgeous and they’re super sturdy and good quality!

Now, I’m not personally a fan of metallic lipsticks for “everyday” or “beauty” looks on myself but for creative makeup I really like them and think they give a nice effect on the lips.
These have a very subtle sheen of metallic compared to many other brands and that’s what I really like about these. They’re subtle enough to almost make it look like your lipstick is just very shiny and they don’t have that glittery gritty feeling, texture or look.

They applied very creamy and were super easy to apply. While wearing them you don’t feel the metallic in them, they just feel like a regular creamy satin matte lipstick so they’re super comfortable and non-drying to wear.

Wear time is about 4 hours for me before I need to reapply but they leave a soft stain so it’s not that noticeable when they’re wearing off, they just become more subtle and softer in color.

unspecified-56Left to right: Third eye, Gemma, Charmed, Roswell, Penny, Beetle, Asphalt, Denim, Mirage & Lady. 

They all swatched super easily with full opaque color with one swipe only.

My favorite colors out of them all are: Third eye, Roswell & Denim 💙

5/5 stars!🌟

NEW IN // MORPHE LIQUID LIPSTICKS & GERARD COSMETICS LIP LINERS

unspecified-57 unspecified-68 unspecified-65 unspecified-60 unspecified-64 unspecified-61

New goodies I just got in the mail, so excited to play with it! 💕

Morphe was so sweet to send me their full collection of liquid lipsticks, and somehow it ended up at my parents house but my dad was so sweet to bring it by last night and I was so excited when I saw what it was! The texture feels nice and creamy when I swatched a few and they have a sweet candy scent that I really like so I think I’m gonna love these.

I also got the 4 new Gerard Cosmetics lipliners, these are such stunning colors and the previous liners are some of my favorites so I know I’ll use these a lot. These launch February 14th.

Have you tried the Morphe lipsticks yet? 💕

NEW IN // SUPERFOODS & PROTEIN POWDER

unspecified-56 unspecified-67

Hey guys,

I recently got a bunch of stuff home that I ordered a little while ago and I thought I’d share it with you all.
I’ve been eating a lot better since the beginning of January and I’m making it my mission for 2017 to eat more daily (I used to eat way too little) and to eat healthier and get better things into my body so I ordered a bunch of things to help me with that 💕

The first things I ordered were more protein powder from Womens Best and an extra shaker. I’ve gone through one big tub of Vanilla powder during January and only have 1 other left in my cabinet so I figured it was time to get backups and try different flavors to see what I like the best. I ended up ordering 2 vegan proteins with chocolate and cookies & cream flavor and 2 whey proteins (I prefer vegan but they didn’t have as many flavors) in the flavors Banana and Cinnamon apple. The shipping was pretty expensive even though they ship from germany so that sucks, but the things were on sale when I ordered so it was still an okay price overall.

I’ve tried the chocolate, banana and cookies & creme flavor already and the chocolate is my favorite for sure. I didn’t like the Cookies & cream but maybe I’ll like it in a different type of shake. The banana was fine, nothing special about it but nothing bad either.

Please note that I mix these in Smoothies (700ml) and not with 300 ml water as stated and the flavors are still pretty strong, so I can imagine that in a small shake mixed with liquid only it might be too overpowering.

Next up I got some superfood and things in bulk that I always use but hate being in smaller expensive packages. I ordered these things off RealFoodSource on Amazon and delivery was pretty quick and their prices are much cheaper than in stores.

I got 1 liter of coconut oil, 1kg almonds, 1kg Quinoa, 1kg chia seeds and 500g of goji berries. 

I use the coconut oil for skin (not my face) and hair, food and smoothies, quinoa mainly in salads and Almonds + goji berries + chia seeds I put in my smoothies 💕

GERARD COSMETICS SUPREME LIP CREMES REVIEW + SWATCHES

unspecified-44

Hey Dolls,

So today I’m going to review the Gerard Cosmetics Supreme lip cremes and swatch the 8 colors I have, and I’m super excited to share these with you all since I feel like nobody ever talks about these which is so sad because they deserve a lot more hype.

These retail for $12.50 right here 💕

unspecified-63

First off all, Gerard cosmetics slayed the packaging yet again on these ones. I love the glossy glass tube and gold lid and I love the fact that the tube doesn’t change the real color of the gloss so what you see is what you get.

These have a crazy amount of pigmentation in them and I almost couldn’t believe it when I first swatched them. These are just as pigmented as most liquid lipsticks, but glossy and creamy instead of matte. They aren’t sticky which is a huge plus for me since sticky lipgloss is the worst in my opinion and they went on super smooth and creamy and stayed creamy and comfortable on the lips throughout the day.

I’d say you can get a good 4 hours of wear with these before needing to retouch since they fade very slowly and very gradually and they leave you with a bit of stain so it isn’t noticeable when they’re fading.

Top to bottom:
Electric Rose, Destiny, Wild Berry Tart, Blooming Hibiscous, Wonderland, Angel Cake, Envy & Man-eater.

 

My favorite colors are; Man-eater, Destiny and Angel Cake for sure! 💕

I’d highly recommend these if your looking for a highly pigmented gloss! 5/5 stars ⭐️
