LOTD: Sugarpill Trinket

Today's lip of the day is none other than the infamous Sugarpill Trinket liquid lipstick. This is hands down my favorite lipstick of ALL time. It is a mauve pink with gold sparkle and it smells delicious. This color is flattering on everyone. It is comfortable, long wearing, and unique. I think this lipstick singlehandedly started the sparkle liquid lipstick trend and I will probably continue to buy this lipstick until I am 100 years old so long as they continue to make it!

This color is everything! If I didn't have so many other liquid lipsticks I would wear this every day. I normally line this with MAC Bittersweet Prolongwear lip liner but for today, I lined it with another liquid lipstick, Sephora Pretty Auburn lipstick. I am going to keep this one short because I have to study but life is given every time I wear this! Till next time ladies!! Ba bye!!

LOTD: Lime Crime Black Velvet Velvetine 

Hello hello fine people. How are you today? Me? So nice of you to ask! I'm fine. I almost got blown away by the wind in Philadelphia but other than that, it has been a lovely day. One filled with 3 hour classes, glowing highlighted skin, and unintentional goth makeup. Sometimes my mind just takes me places with my clothing & makeup that other people might consider weird but you know what? I like it. I wanted to wear a black lip today and I chose none other than Lime Crime Black Velvet from their Velvetine Liquid Lipstick Line.

Lime Crime Black Velvet
Now as you can see up close, black lipstick can be very unforgiving. I think I needed several layers of this color but I don't like applying my lipstick too thickly. With just one layer, this color can get a little patchy, but this is not very visible outside of up close & personal flash photography. I zoomed all the way in for this one lol. Anywhoo this is how it looks not so up close.

See not too bad. I paired the lip with a black and green cat eye and I like the way the look came out. I tried to keep my face makeup minimal. How do you guys feel about black lipstick? Can people wear it without looking too goth? I mean I feel like a real life Ninja Turtle with this black and green combo. Now someone else might not think that should be goals but in my opinion looking like a hijabi ninja turtle is quite awesome.

LOTD: Jeffree Star Cosmetics I'm Royalty Liquid Lipstick

Hi hi! Today's post is going to focus on a lipstick that has been close to my heart since I purchased it. Now most who know me know that I used to be a huge fan of Jeffree Star Cosmetics. But then I heard a lot of shiesty stuff about Jeffree Star himself (him being a racist bully, no tea no shade) and his brand (stolen art, broken product etc. again no tea no shade) and decided that I would no longer support him. Why would I give my hard earned money to a mean, nasty person? Now mind you, by this time I had already accumulated about 10 of his liquid lipsticks. I ended up giving them away, but I just couldn't part with the color I'm Royalty. But bets believe when she runs out...I will be getting the dupe (Pretty Zombie Cosmetics 3 Witches and its cheaper honey)! And as you can see, it won't be long until I run out. It took me a long time to even do this post because as much as I love and wear this color, I don't want to promote anything Jeffree Star...but whatevs.

There isn't much I can say about this color. It's perfect. The staying power, the vibrancy, even the tacky packaging. It's neon purple, looks good on a variety of skin tones and its just bomb. I honestly don't want to ever be without this color but I will never make another purchase from Jeffree Star again. It kind of pains me to think that I'm running out of this. But anywho look at it! I never need to line it. It stays on forever (unless of course I eat) and I always get complimented when I wear it. I will be placing an order with Pretty Zombie Cosmetics fairly soon and cannot wait to see if 3 witches is comparable. Going to keep this post short. TTYGirls!!
