Cheers to the Beauty

Coloured Raine Cheers to the Beauty Eyeshadow Palette ($50.00 for 0.71 oz.) is a large palette that contains 12 eyeshadows and one highlighter. Almost every shade had rich color payoff, while most were blendable and easy to use with good wear (without primer). I think the palette worked best when I incorporated some softer, lighter and more mid-tone shades, particularly when working with some of the cooler-toned shimmery shades in the palette, but it could definitely be used together for a cohesive look if one enjoys dramatic and more contrasting color combinations.

Best Makeup Brushes for Foundation, Concealer, Powder

Best Makeup Brushes for Applying Foundation, Powder, & Concealer

There are certain types of brushes that I tend to rely heavily on a specific brush and have less options, and this post reflects that.  I’m not sure if it’s merely because I love them so much and don’t love others nearly as much, but these were the ones I use often and stood out to me when I went to compile my favorites!

I would love to hear about the brushes you can’t live without for foundation, concealer, and powder — share your picks in the comments! 🙂

Kat Von D Lolita Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color payoff was fantastic–actually opaque!–with a dense consistency that was smooth, velvety, and lightweight and had just enough slip to apply without dragging on my lips. It wore well for five and a half hours but was a bit drying after four hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.12 oz. - $158.33 Per Ounce

Per the brand, the new formula is supposed to be "the creamiest, most cushiony and unbelievably pigmented lipstick to ever cross your lips" that is "comfortable" to wear. I don't know if the brand has actually tried the plethora of other lipsticks on the market, because I can tell you that after swatching all 40 shades back-to-back, these are nowhere near "the creamiest" or "most cushiony" or even "unbelievably pigmented." They were, on average, much creamier than the original formula, but a fair number of shades were firm and dense enough that short strokes was better for application otherwise there was noticeable tugging. Some shades were pigmented, some shades were uneven or sheer. The mid-tone shades seemed to be the best overall in terms of application, pigmentation, and how they looked on the lips, whereas the shimmery shades were often sheerer, gritty, and drying while the deeper, vampy shades were lacking pigmentation and could apply streakily.

They seemed to have longer wear than most lipsticks (five to eight hours) but have been lightly to intensely drying, depending on the shade, and I found that wearing them back-to-back made the drying aspect more pronounced. They had a strong, sweet, burnt sugar kind of scent that was noticeable when initially applied, but I didn't detect during wear.

I did not review all shades in the original Studded Kiss formula as it wasn't feasible for me to purchase all of those at the time, and after trying what I did purchase, they weren't promising (often very dry, stiff, and painful to use with a drying formula). From what I can tell, some are better (see: LUV (Original) vs. LUV (New); Coven (Original) vs. Coven (New)), some are worse (see: Gold Blooded (Original) vs. Gold Blooded (New); Poe (Original) vs. Poe (New)). The shimmery shades seemed worse for the reformulation, and the glittery shades are like the grittiest sandpaper across one's lips; I felt like I was ripping my lips off when applying both Gold Blooded and Piaf with Poe not being far behind.
