Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick Review:

I was very shocked and happy to spot Wet n Wild’s New Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks at my local Harmons Discount Drugstore glamour babes! Harmons was the last place I would expect to see them. They are usually late bloomers when it comes to getting new makeup releases. I also heard these liquid lipsticks were to release early January 2017, I guess I heard wrong. Apparently, spring has sprung early for us, not that I’m complaining about this.

Before I get into the review, I just want to let you know if there is a Harmons Drugstore near you, and you find Wet n Wild’s Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks. They are fifty cents less ($4.49), and if you use the $5 off Bed, Bath and Beyond Coupons they’ll tack more money off your purchase. I bought four and ended up paying $14 with a $5 off coupon. I’ll pay $3.50 for a lipstick any day, especially good ones such as these pretty kitties.

Wet n Wild has quite the selection to choose from out of this collection; 13 shades to be exact. Ranging in beautiful tones of nudes, pinks, bold reds, dusty roses and mauves, and deep rich berries. My favorites were Missy and Fierce, Hello Dolly, Video Vixen, and Goth Topic.

Missy and Fierce-classic cool blue red

Hello Dolly- hot pink


Video Vixen- berry


Goth Topic- dark berry

These liquid lipsticks have some serious staying power. I was so impressed by how amazingly well they held up for an extremely affordable drugstore brand lipstick. From the moment I applied each shade, not one of them caked, cracked, feathered, bled, or dried out my lips, they were in purrrrfect shape. Mind you, I was wearing each one through a 10 hour day with eating, drinking, bumpin a gum with clients, and god knows what else, lol. To make life a whole lot easier on you and your lips, I’d keep makeup remover wipes on hand. Yea, the staying power is that remarkable. This liquid lipstick knows how to leave an imprint, lol.

The formula is lightweight, creamy, intensely pigmented (one swipe is all you need to coat your lips), wears comfortably, goes on glossy, but dries matte. Applies evenly and easily with the new J shaped doe foot wand. This new design hugs all the curves of your lips for a more precise application making it foolproof! And, Wet n Wild’s Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks are completely vegan! How catastic is that?! Everyone can get their paws on them now!

If you’re tired from the drugstore hunt, curl up on the couch and relax. You can head on over to wetnwildbeauty.com and bring all 13 shades home with just a few clicks of a button.

Stay beautiful, xo.

TheBalm Cosmetics Meet Matte Hughes (Dedicated and Loyal) Liquid Lipstick Review:

Hey glamour babes! There’s someone I’d like to you meet, and he sure is swell! Meet Matte Hughes ($17) from TheBalm Cosmetics!


This lovely fella of a liquid lipstick is truly a keeper in my eyes. I mean what’s not to like about Matte Hughes?! He comes in 12 charismatic shades, and I happened to fall in love with his Loyal and Dedicated side.

Dedicated is a red berry.


Loyal is a deep red.


Long lasting (up to 8 hours or longer), light weight, comfortable to wear, vibrant, does not cake, feather, or crumble, and is easy to apply due to the ever so soft, plush doe foot wands Matte provides.


He’s the perfect gentleman when creating the perfect pout; Precise, even, beautiful, and flawless, Matte Hughes is everything a gal could ever want in a liquid lipstick.

The sweet intoxicating scent of vanilla alone makes me weak in the knees as the cool sensation of mint sends shivers down my spine as it gently absorbs into my lips. Whhhhhhewwwww, this liquid lipstick is such a charmer, I think I need a tall glass of water to cool off, lol.

As totally committed as we are, not all is perfect in our liquid lipstick love story.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love that Matte Hughes of mine, I truly do, but sometimes he can put a damper on my lips when it comes to dry down time during our application sessions. Not to worry though, he doesn’t cling on for long, he just needs a minute and we’re good to go! What can I say? My lips are that irresistible, lol.

So? What do you goils think? Is The Balm’s Meet Matte Hughes a dream or what?! I can confidently say we’re made for each other. I gotta see what his other characteristics (shades) are like. Oooooooooo, just thinking about it is making my heart skip a beat!

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick (Project Chimps, Nosferatu, Outlaw) Review:

Wow, Kat Von D has stepped it up with her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20/0.22 oz.) glamour babes. I remember trying her liquid lipstick when her line first launched and I was a big fan. The matte formulation at the time applied unevenly, patchy, and dried into a crumbly mess to the point where it had to be removed. Not anymore, Kat Von D reformulated all of her cosmetics not only making them cruelty free, but vegan friendly too! Hooray! Now everyone can try em and love em! I decided to give Ms. Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick a second chance because of the revamping of her line, and I saw that she released a limited edition shade called project chimps to help save the chimps one lipstick at a time! For every Project Chimps Limited Edition lipstick sold, 20% of the retail price will go to Project Chimps, a nonprofit organization that has worked to stop the use of chimps in private biomedical research and retire them to a sanctuary. I think in this day and age we should no longer test on animals, it isn’t necessary, it is cruel and in humane. Long story short, I wanted to support her cause and make a difference, I love animals and every bit of support counts. I also tossed two more shades into the cart (Nosferatu, and Outlaw) for the free mini liquid liner in Wolfie, and to save on shipping costs. Plus, these shades of red are perfect for fall, change is in the air, I could feel it!

Project Chimps- is a warm brick red that has been lip tested, and chimp approved!


Nosferatu- is a I vant to suck your blood crimson red. Blah, blah, blah.


Outlaw- this town ain’t big enough for the two of us when wearing this brick red, now draw!


The Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are light weight, creamy, smooth, easy to apply thanks to the lengthy doe foot wands each tube carries, are highly pigmented, and set into a beautiful matte finish.


A little goes a long way with these liquid lipsticks, the colors are very opaque, and they do not cake, crumble, feather or crack once applied, huge thumbs up to that. However, you will need to use a baby wipe or makeup remover to remove the color off the lips, the staying power of these liquid lipsticks are that tough to take off alone, Kat Von D don’t play.

Formulated without parabens, the infusion of natural ingredients, including vitamin E and sunflower seed wax keep lips snug as a bug in a rug when wearing these color rich lipsticks.

Project Chimps, Nosferatu, and Outlaw provide long lasting wear up to eight hours or possibly longer. I got up to an 8 hour wear and I was able to do the following just like Kat Von D’s website said I could do, lol; “You can eat, drink, make up, break up and mouth-off knowing your lips are gonna stay flawless through it all!” And they most certainly did boys and gals! My lips persevered through everything, including my sailor mouth, lol.

Giving Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks a second chance was totally worth supporting the cause, and I’m glad I did. I do think the makeup industry as a whole, not just the cruelty free companies should become more involved in non-profit organizations for their cosmetics, and put an end to animal cruelty. Wouldn’t it be more enriching to know what/where our money is going towards?! With Kat Von D you do! How rewarding does that feel?! So, let’s support the cause and help her save some chimps! Your lips and the chimps will thank you.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Colourpop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick (3-Way, Kween, Man Eater) Review:

Can all of my glamour babes relate with me when receiving Colourpop’s restock email notification on their Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks ($6 each), they felt as if they were on the game show Supermarket Sweep?! Lord, the pressure I felt when I was trying to add 3-Way, Kween, and Man Eater into my shopping cart in under 7 minutes was surreal, but I did it! And, boy did I feel like the Supermarket Sweep winner! So, Where’s my pony with saddle bags full of money?! Or more like saddle bags FULL of Colourpop goodies! Lol.


Poor Zebra (fantastic dupe for Kylie’s Reign Metallic Lippie), I am afraid I had to leave this true bronzy little fella behind, I didn’t fall as hard for this shade the way I did for the others.

3-Way is a plummy pink with gold sparkle that pairs well with Colourpop’s Contempo, and Ellarie lip pencil.


Kween (FYI, this is a vegan lippie!) is a burnt red with tons of gold glitter that can be paired with Colourpop’s Bitchette, Dalia, and Poison (highly recommend) pencil.


Man Eater is my top favorite out of the bunch, which is a shimmery rose gold, and Colourpop’s BFF Pencil 2 or BFF Pencil 3 can be used to outline those shimmery lips for a more defined look.


Colourpop’s Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks have a lightweight formula, are very comfortable to wear, and apply evenly and precisely despite the negative comments I’ve come across on their much smaller doe foot wands.


Honestly, I really couldn’t tell the difference. Yes, their wands are a wee bit smaller, but in no way effects the color application. They work exactly the same as Colourpop’s regular sized wands, and hold a good amount of color, nuf said.

As for pigmentation, I felt that 3-Way and Man Eater had the most opaqueness out of the three, saturating the lip beautifully with one application. Kween needed a little more effort, one application wasn’t enough, it looked sheer, I needed about two or three coats to get that rich metallic sheen 3-Way and Man Eater produced with just one coat.
Even though Kween adds an extra 60 seconds to apply during my makeup routine, lol, I’m still happy with the shade choices I picked, and I love the velvety whipped texture each shade carries.
Because Colourpop’s Ultra Metallic Lippies set into a satin metallic finish, the colour payoff varies. Drinking causes subtle transferring onto cups and glasses, but the color stays intact all day. Eating (avoid greasy foods) will cause some fading creating a soft sparkly balmy stain. No eating or drinking, ummmmm, I think we all know the payoff when us boys and goils do this tactic, lol! Lips are packed with metallic color, looking lustrous and gorgeous all day long!
Who was lucky enough to grab some of Colourpop’s Ultra Metallic Lippies?! Do you think they take full Reign over Kylie’s Liquid Lipsticks? After my mad dash for Colourpop’s Metallic Lippies, I think I know who rules the metallic queendom already (wink).
Stay beautiful! Xo.
