MAC Goodies: Honeylove, A Girl's Got Needs, Ruby Woo, and Deep Rooted

Today I decided to be a big girl and back to Mac all of my old lips products. I legitimately got rid of 24 lipsticks and glosses. It felt good. And I'm hoping to be able to finish more products now that I have 24 less to choose from. Though I went to MAC with a couple products in mind, namely Angel and Easy Babe lipsticks from the Nicki's Nude's Collection. I of course was mad late, Easy Babe was sold out and Angel just was not as cute as I thought it would be. So, I got Deep Rooted: a brown toned grey, A Girl's Got Needs: a warm brown, Ruby Woo: a classic retro red, and Honeylove: a beige rosey nude. They're cute or whatever. I just want to say excuse my ashy face in advanced. I'm trying a new moisturizer with SPF in it and it turns my face ghostly white. The things we do for beauty...

Aren't they cute? So pigmented

All of the lipsticks are matte. I'm pleased with them all, though I did think that A Girl's Got Needs would be darker. Either way, I am going to pair all of these with lip liners. Deep Rooted doesn't need one, but I typically wear lip liner with all my lipsticks. God my face looks ashy...I'm going to have to figure out how to best wear this moisturizer. Till next time guys. Tootles.

MAC Retro Matte Metallic Lipsticks: In Retrograde and Moon Landing

These lip colors are nice and my camera didn't even catch the true metallicness of them. The blue is a bit patchy but I still like it and I can see myself rocking a black smokey eye with them both. MAC did a good job with these lipsticks and it hurts to know that these two colors are limited edition. Fortunately In retrograde, the red, is an exact dupe for Smashbox Man-eater. The blue is pretty unique in my opinion, but it does remind me of Anastasia Beverly Hills Paint.

My Verdict:
Color: 8 out of 10
Comfort: 8 out of 10
Opaqueness: 7 out of 10 for In Retrograde, 6 out of 10 for Moon Landing
Price: it Sucks lol $21 
Overall: I like them. If they were cheaper I would buy more but they are not so these are it for me. There are other colors to choose from, a few nudes, a cute purple and even a neon pink. A little something for everybody. 

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks: Gemini, Nathan, Crocodile Tears, Diva

Do you see the utter happiness in my face? I love lipstick. 

T to B: Nathan, Crocodile Tears, Diva, Gemini
Crocodile Tears
The pigmentation, comfort, and feel of these lipsticks are really nice. My favorites are Gemini and Crocodile Tears. The other two were really cute as well but they honestly need a lip liner on my complexion. Gemini and Crocodile Tears are throw on and go types of lippies. Nathan is so pretty but it's pale and Diva reminded me of MAC Hello Kitty Strayin from yonders back. I think I might still have it. Hot pink with gold shimmer. I am happy with my purchase and truly don't have any complaints.

Greige Lipsticks

I'm just going to keep this short and sweet and leave this here for the brown diva that's venturing into griege lip colors. Thank me later. I'm a MAC NW45-47 depending on the season.

PS. Do y'all remember this lipstick? I think it singlehandedly (maybe with the help of Lime Crime Cashmere) started this greige lip kick that we have been on for the past 5 years. I wanted it so badly and apparently everybody else did too because it sold out on the MAC website before I could get it. And all these griegey, taupey lipsticks I have, I still have not been able to dupe Riri Nude exactly, SMH.

Some More Coloured Raine Lippies: Sugar and Pink Panther!

Hiya everybody! Back with a quick post, nothing major. Just some lippies from my favorite brand: Coloured Raine. Woot woot. The two colors I got are Sugar and Pink Panther. Pink Panther is a neon hot pink. It reminds me a lot of OCC Makeup Anime.

L to R: Sugar, Pink Panther

Sugar on the other hand, is a peachy pink nude. Its a tyrone biggums lip y'all! But I love these pale lippies with a little brown liner. It looks so sultry to me. Both of these colors are like pow, in your face, take this.

L to R: Sugar, Pink Panther

One thing I want to note is that each time I get lipsticks from Coloured Raine, they come in different packaging. As you can see, sugar has a smaller, fatter applicator than Pink Panther, which is longer and thinner. They both apply the product fine, but I do like the smaller applicator better. I also prefer the simple packaging.

Comparison Swatches Left to Right: Sugar, Kat Von D Ophelia, Pink Panther, Jeffree Star Watermelon Soda. I didn't swatch sugar because it looked a hot mess and I didn't feel like going to get brown bad.

f*ck Trump Lipstick: A Middle Finger to the Current Sociopolitical Landscape

Do Good. Be Bold. The Lipslut website is truly inspiring. If you haven't heard of Lipslut, it is a fairly new brand of cosmetics that is dedicating their creativity to take a stand against the ills of society. Their signature lipstick f*ck Trump tickled me so when I first saw it on Instagram and I made it my business to support this brand. Shoot...they were supporting me in so many ways. A portion of all the proceeds from their sales go directly to charity, and I felt more than honored to support a company that actually cares about people, not just our money.

P.S. I hear that they have a second lipstick dropping in a couple weeks called f*ck Hollywood. I am not a big fan of reds, and I am on a no buy but I'm thinking about breaking it for the 1000th time to donate to charity because I think it's important that I buy from a brand that brings attention to the crudy things that go on.

This came directly from the Lipslut website and I think it's just amazing because they are doing their part in trying to make this world a better place. Cheesy... yes I know. Making the world a better place is the typical pageant girl goal, but you know what? I feel the sentiment with a passion.
"What if companies prided themselves on pushing to improve society?
Lipslut is fashion, subversion, and a middle finger to the current sociopolitical landscape. By working hard towards solving the issues you care about, Lipslut is ready to help you make a statement.
Join Lipslut on our path to changing the world one face at a time." 

So beyond what they stand for (because I clearly think they're the bomb) what do I think about the lipstick?

The Lipslut website describes f*ck Trump as a mid-tone nude pink and it's very wearable. I find I like it better with a brown lip liner (I don't need to have one, just like to have one) but its just because of my deep skin tone. It helps it to transition a little better. Comfortability is fine as well. It's not the most comfortable matte liquid lipstick that I have and its not the most uncomfortable. It's honestly somewhere in the middle. I find that it goes on very thick and opaque and I think it fares better with lip balm underneath. But I also put lip balm under all my matte lips because I was just born with dry lips and the crustiness gets real. If your lips are soft then you'll be fine without balm. But me...I gets my Napolean Dynamite on.

Here's what the lip color looks like on me and I am a NW45-47 in MAC foundation for reference:

I also really like the simplistic look of the lipstick. It's pretty in my opinion. Sometimes I feel like companies do too much with packaging and design but Lipslut really made a great product all around.  Do you see Trump with the pink lipstick on? HAHAHA I LOVE IT.

Also wanted to give you guys a little comparison because I know thats pretty much important to. Shows that the color is unique:

Top left to Bottom Right: f*ck Trump, Lime Crime Teddy Bear, Lime Crime Riot, and Sugarpill Trinket

Overall verdict?

8/10. I've had this lipstick for some time. I have worn it for hours on end and I like it. I like the color, and I like the longevity. The packaging wasn't bad either, I honestly didn't want to throw the exterior packaging away because it was so cool. I truly feel empowered wearing this lipstick. My views on Donald Trump will most likely continue to be pessimistic. I think he is a horrible individual, but I do respect him as the President of our United States. I wish him well because our lives are heavily impacted by his decisions, but for now...I'll let the lipstick speak for me regarding how I feel about his shenanigans.

Urban Decay Electric Palette & Mac Divine Divine Lipstick (HATED IT)

Hey hey! So I have been loving bright eye shadow looks lately, thanks to JKissa Makeup on YouTube! A while back I purchased the Urban Decay Electric Palette because it was on sale at Nordstrom's. It may still be available but it's definitely been discontinued at Sephora and Ulta. Back then I just got it because it was on sale and I never used it...but now I totally am ready to.

Savage and Fringe

Revolt and Gonzo

Urban and Freak

Chaos and Jilted

Freak and Thrash

These shadows are so bright and pigmented like I just cannot wait to wear them. As a matter of fact, me and revolt may have a date tomorrow. I'm envisioning a little brown in the crease and a light wash of sparkly silver all over the eye. If I do, I will definitely get pictures. Maybe a little winged liner...yas sis, yas.

Now to the second portion of the post, this color is horrible guys. Please if you are brown, do not do this to yourself, unless you are equipped with lip liner, lip balm, and a plan, because this color looks like pepto bismol when worn alone on the lips and its texture is quite similar to pepto bismol as well. Mac almost got a curse out with this, but liner saved me from having to use the bad words. Plus this was free so I can't complain too much...

I had to do the most to get this color to look semi decent. I like the look of the hot pink ombre'd with divine divine but I also think it would need a deeper liner, maybe something like a beet or vino in the real world because its a little too stark on my complexion. The brown looked a whole lot better in person but is kinda lack luster on I guess its a toss up depending upon what you want.
