Thursday Reviews: Liquid Lipstick Battle

Happy Thursday!! I'm so happy that the weekend is almost here! If you haven't heard about the craze about liquid lipsticks, you must be living under a rock. It seems like every makeup company has their own version of this very popular product. It is so hard not wanting to pick up every single one! I have a few that I have been trying out and reviewing. I couldn't find most of pictures of me wearing some of them but have a few. Let's get into the reviews!

Lime Crime Velvetine in Wicked

I know there is a lot of controversy with this company but I still wanted to review this product. I picked this up last year at IMATS and boy was that line ridiculous!! My friends actually stood in line and we just gave them money while we walked around and got stuff for them. I heard so many good things about this liquid lipstick and just had to try it. I fell in love the first time I wore this. These velvetines are so pigmented and not drying at all. I didn't have to touch up at all and it stayed pigmented the whole day. I really love this lipstick and may repurchase again. The velvetines are 20.00 on the Lime Crime site. Here is a swatch of Wicked.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Berry

I heard so many mixed reviews on this product. I really debated for a while on purchasing until I received a giftcard to Sephora for Christmas and made the purchase. This color is so gorgeous and the melted lipsticks are super pigmented. They are long wearing but I found this to feel very drying after a while. I have to wear this with a gloss so it doesn't feel so dry. I'm not sure if I would repurchase this again but the colors are so pretty. These melted lipsticks are 21.00 on the site and can be found in Sephora and Ulta. Here is a swatch and a pic of me wearing Melted Berry.

L.A. Girl Cosmetics Glazed Lip Paint in Coy and Blushing

There was a lot of talk that these lip paints were dupes to some of the liquid lipsticks out there. I had to give them a try and surprisingly found at Five Below for 3.00 each. These lip paints are pretty pigmented and I love the minty scent they have. I was a little disappointed in the wear time. They don't last all day and you have to reapply a couple times during the day. I wouldn't really call these a dupe to any of the other ones but they are still a great product. I would recommend these for anyone on a budget. Here are swatches of both colors.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Berlin

There was such a huge buzz about these liquid lipsticks. They are so popular and and I've heard nothing but great reviews on them. I got this sample one along with the Studded Kiss Lipstick in a sample pack pack at Sephora during the holiday season. I see why everyone loves these so much. They are so pigmented, long wearing and not drying at all. All the colors are so pretty, I just want to buy them all lol! These are 20.00 on the website or Sephora. Here is a swatch.

Dose of Colors Liquid Lipsticks in Berry Me and Limited Edition Black Rose

I had the chance to pick these up at IMATS this year and have been loving them ever since!! Everyone and their mother were raving about them! These are super pigmented and very long wearing. I love how they do not feel drying at all and just amazing. The only thing about them is that they do transfer a bit but do not lose the pigmentation at all. They are 18.00 each on the Dose of Colors site. Here are the swatches and pics of me wearing each one!

Black Rose

So that is it for my Liquid Lipstick battle. Overall I really love the liquid lipstick trend and would like to try more of them. My favorites are Dose of Colors, Kat Von D and Lime Crime. What are some of your favorites? Comment below and let me know! I will be away this weekend so Sunday Fashions will resume next week. See you for another Thursday Review!

I have one more week of the AB challenge and I haven't stopped yet! My abs hurt but I see some results!!

My blog will be 2 next month! I'm excited that I have another year under my belt! 


  1. I love the Too Faced Melted and the KVD ones. I didn't like how drying the Dose of Color Liquid Lipstick was and the Lime Crimes look nice but i won't purchase from them. I just tried the ColourPop ones and they are pretty good. I didn't like the lighter colors that I got though..but I loved the darker ones.

    1. I've heard a lot about the new Colourpop ones, I may try them out. It just seems like every company has them and its hard to choose which ones you want lol! The Dose of Colors did get a little dry but nothing some lip balm can't fix. Thanks for stopping by Tanya!

  2. The Lime Crime ones are my absolute favourite! They are long lasting without being drying. I really want to try the Dose of Colours lippies as I've heard so many great things about them.

  3. KVD and Dose of Colors are my two faves!

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
