This or That: Sparkly Red Lipstick ft. Pat McGrath vs. UOMA Beauty

This or That: Sparkly Red Lipstick ft. Pat McGrath vs. UOMA Beauty

While the last few editions of This or That have featured very, very similar-colored products, it's also good to compare products that aren't quite as close in color. This helps to figure out why we may be drawn to one color over another while also assessing any formula differences.  Let's take a...

With over a thousand reviews and swatches, I've tested my way through the majority of NARSNARS products and releases, both past and present, so I have a good idea of what NARS best products are!

Lipsticks Over $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

No real surprises on this list--shade extensions from my favorite formulas were a pleasure to test, like Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy, Pat McGrath MatteTrance, and MAC Lipstick (which is a reliable favorite!). New formulas like Fenty Beauty Slip Shine and Bite Beauty Lip Crayons made it onto the list,...

Lipsticks Under $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Lipstick releases never really cease. It's incredible how many lip products are released each year, even in a year where manufacturing and supply chains were disrupted!

Liquid Lipsticks | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Liquid Lipsticks | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Liquid lipsticks have been trending down--at least in terms of reviews here, which is a partial reflection of trends, what readers are into, and what is releasing!--since 2019, though I think more readers reached for some past releases to get through mask-wearing during 2020! That being said, there...

As promised, next in gloss favorites is all about more pigmented glosses that I reviewed in the past year that I enjoyed! I was particularly drawn to Lisa Eldridge's new Lipgloss formula, while Pat McGrath OpuLUST fulfilled all sparkling, metallic gloss dreams!

Sheer Lipglosses | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Despite 2020 being NOT the year for lip product wearing for many readers, I managed to review more glosses this year than in 2019; I tested and reviewed over 180 lipglosses! I find that with gloss, it's helpful to break them out by opacity, so these are ones that caught my eye during the past year...

Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor's Favorites

It's so hard to pick favorites! I really do suffer from appreciating different finishes, types of formulas, undertones, and a plethora of shades.  Lisa Eldridge's Velvet Lipsticks were as good as billed, which I finally reviewed in 2019 (they sold out so quickly that I was waiting for a restock to...
