Morphe Liquid Lipstick in “Morphe”. 

Hiya! Wow I can’t believe the week is nearly over! Today’s look is a really simple one. I really didn’t feel like going the whole hog with makeup today so just went for a bare face with a coat of mascara and a bold lip. The mascara I’ve been using lately is Roller Lash by Benefit. I love this mascara! There’s no clumps and it beautifully separates the lashes! The lippy I chose to wear today is a liquid lipstick by Morphe Brushes in the shade “Morphe”. 

The shade is actually brighter than I thought it would be when I first ordered it. The lip swatch on the site made it look to be more of a deep blood red. However, I still really love this shade! The formula of this lipstick is lovely. It goes on so smoothly and doesn’t feel drying at all. It’s got such a lovely scent as well. Vanilla, I think. The staying power is fantastic although it does fade in the centre of the lips when you eat/drink. I found that after wearing it for while it doesn’t crumble like some other brands do. I did find though that it bleeds a little. I think that’s quite common with reds in general mind. I’ve yet to find a red that doesn’t bleed.

I think this will be my go-to statement lippy. I absolutely love it! 

I purchased mine from Beauty Bay. At the time there was a sale and it was on offer for around £6.50 but it’s current price is £10.50.

Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Metallic Lip Kit Review. 

Hiya! How’s your Sunday going? I’m full of cold so feeling a bit under the weather today but thought I’d pop by and post a review. Yesterday I came across a review that Amy from Little Lost Bee did about her Makeup Revolution Metallic Lip Kit and it reminded me that I had one myself but had forgotten all about it so thought I’d have a bit of a play today to see how it faired.

The shade itself is beautiful! It’s a metallic deep purple. When I bought it I thought it might be a dupe for Jeffree Star’s No Tea, No Shade but the Revolution one has more of a reddy tone to it.

That being said, it could just be my own lip colour that’s giving it that reddy tone haha. I love the shade but the staying power isn’t great. I was expecting the lip pencil to help with that but it didn’t at all. The pencil had more of a lipstick consistency to it and the liquid lipstick is more of a gloss and doesn’t really dry like I thought it would, so if I touched it, it just came off on my fingers. I’m a bit disappointed with it to be honest but it is only my first time wearing it so I may give it another chance as I do love the colour.

I apologise for my selfies today. The lighting wasn’t great due to the dreary, rainy weather we’ve been having. My brows were not my friend today either haha. 🙈

Have any of you tried this lip kit before? What do you think? I think maybe my expectations were a little high after trying Lime Crime’s matte and metallic Velvetines and Jeffree Star’s Velour liquid lipsticks.

Medusa’s Makeup Lipstick Review. 

Hey guys! How’s your Tuesday going? Today I’m going to talk about a great cruelty free cosmetics brand called Medusa’s Makeup. Their products are also vegan friendly. Yay! I first discovered this brand on Facebook! I was drawn to their bright lipstick/eyeshadow shades and, most importantly, that they are vegan. They were kind enough to send me a lipstick to review (you may have seen my previous post) and,  just so you know, all opinions are my own. 😀 I would never be dishonest about a product that I’m reviewing. Now, on to the review… 

Above I am wearing Medusa’s lipstick in the shade Triple X. The bright pink is quite the show stopper and will certainly get you noticed! The formulation is gorgeous and so creamy! It’s so moisturising and the pigmentation is amazing! After taking this pic I blotted it and had something to eat and drink and the colour was still so bright! As you can see below:

As you can see, it’s faded a little at the edges and towards the middle of my lips but it’s still going strong! I’d say I had to reapply about 3 hours after the first application which is actually quite good going in my opinion. Overall, I really love this lippy and would definitely like try out more shades!

Medusa’s Makeup also do a monthly subscription box. How fab is that?! You guys know I looove me a subscription box! Would definitely consider buying one of these in the future!
You should pop on by to Medusa’s Makeup and check their products out for yourself! Their prices are really affordable and for us who don’t live in the US it’s free international delivery on orders over $40.
