Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in 45 Escapist | Review and Swatches

The Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink line is a game-changer. They are the most long-lasting, relatively comfortable matte liquid lipsticks I have tried. A friend sent me two shades as a gift. One of them is Escapist (45), a blackened bluish red. I love the color against my light-medium olive skin with strong yellow undertones. Note: All of the photos shown below were taken at the end of a workday when I had a meal, 2 coffee drinks, and several trips to the water station. The lipstick feels very tacky upon initial application. It is opaque and there’s no need…

Purge Pile 2018 – Vol. 1

Semi-regularly, I go through my vanity to look for stuff to give away so they don’t go expired with me. Unfortunately, I found 4 products that went bad. It could be hard to believe but I loved all of them. This is the reality of buying more than you need; You could end up with many things going bad if you’re not on top of shelf lives and expiration dates.

I love Riri but I didn’t want to buy anything from Fenty Beauty just because Rih (close kame!?) has her name on it. I waited for her to come out with a matte lipstick in a relatively wearable shade I like. Color Freckle Fiesta is a medium terracotta-toned orange. The color is more vibrant than I thought it would be but nowhere near as bright as MAC Lady Danger. It’s still somewhat muted. Formula The lipstick is full-coverage, lightweight, and has…

Lipz Diva Silky Matte Lipstick in Lucky Review and Swatches

One of my recent most used lipsticks is Lipz Diva Silky Matte Liquid Lipstick in Lucky. I love the formula! It dries down matte and sets completely. This is one of the more comfortable and lightweight matte liquid lipsticks I’ve tried (note, however, that I generally like matte liquid lipsticks). The consistency is thin and it moves with the lips once it dries, if that makes sense. It doesn’t transfer on mugs / cups unless you’re drinking a fatty coffee or hot chocolate or anything topped with whipped cream. It remains presentable after non-greasy meal and it doesn’t get tacky…
