ColourPop Brooklyn & So Wavy Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Brooklyn Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright hot pink.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark warm, fuchsia pink with a semi-matte finish. It was rich color payoff with full coverage that applied evenly. The consistency was thin and then “dried” to a mostly matte finish–less satiny than many others shades in the formula–that was lightly tacky but didn’t lift color when I pressed my lips together. The color was still going strong after seven hours of wear, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC To Matte with Love (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Greta (P, $32.00) is brighter, glossier (90% similar). Tarte So Fetch (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Berlin (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Bikini (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Toucan (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Mars (P, $6.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC All Fired Up (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Selfish (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Jealous (P, $30.00) is darker, brighter, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Naked Ladies (LE, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Ouiji (P, $6.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Maybelline All Fired Up (P, $7.99) is darker (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Watermelon (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sneak Peek: Viseart Boheme Dream/Ribbons Boheme Palette Photos & Swatches

Viseart Boheme Dream Eyeshadow Palette
Viseart Boheme Dream Eyeshadow Palette

Viseart Boheme Dream Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a mix of bright, shimmery shades. The back of the palette I bought says “Boheme Dream,” but it is also being called “Ribbons Boheme” (Viseart seems to use both interchangeably on their Instagram). Full review soon, but here are swatches :)

Brown Eyeliner

I don’t often wear matte/semi-matte brown eyeliners, but I love a shimmery brown eyeliner to give definition without overwhelming the eyeshadows I’m wearing.
