Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color Review:

Jordana’s Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color ($4.99 at select Walgreens) did not end up being a hit for me glamour babes. It was a total flop. I bought four shades and was disappointed by all of them. I don’t know how they’re considered to be a five star liquid lipstick. They get two stars across my board. I have had plenty of drugstore liquid lipsticks (Wet n Wild, cough, NYX, cough) that performed better than these.

I will say Jordana has a great shade selection. 26 dessert inspired colors ranging in tones of nudes, pinks, purples, berries, reds, and corals. The vibrancy is there too. Each Sweet Cream shade is as colorful as the next, carrying the sweet smell of vanilla frosting. Yum! Red Velvet Cake is a decadent rich red.
Cherry Cobbler is your classic cool blue red.Sugarberry Crumble is a warm mid-tone magenta pink. Raspberry Tart is a vivid cool toned fuchsia.Beautiful Colors right?! 

Now if they only had the 16 hours of wear, a creamy-whipped light weight feel, and left my lips feeling nourished with Vitamin A all day through as Jordana Cosmetics had described, I’d be one happy consumer, but I am not. Trust me, I wanted to LOVE these. The shades are gorgeous. The creamy, lighter than air texture was there. I just couldn’t get past the dryness of the formulation, uneven color application, feathering, and migration Jordana’s Sweet Cream Matte Lip Color produced. It was awful and unbearably frustrating trying to keep this liquid lipstick from self detonating all over my face. No matter what I ate or had to drink, my lips would soon crack and bleed all over the place, which created small specks of lip color on my chin, cheeks, and nose as if I had freckles. It was the weirdest thing. Obviously, these did not last for 16 hours, it was more like an hour. Removing what I applied was no easy task either. In order to fully remove the color, I had to use quite a few makeup remover wipes and use a forceful hand. It seemed like Red Velvet, Cherry Cobbler, Sugarberry, and Raspberry wanted to be permanent residents on the lip front, and I wasn’t having any of that. Ugggghhhhh, so dry! Where’s the chapstick? Is it Vitamin A infused for realsies this time? Lol.

Have you tried Jordana’s Sweet Cream Mattes?

What’s your take on them?

Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit Review:

Don’t waste your time or money on the new Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit glamour babes. It’s pretty darn awful.

I thought the Retro Luxe Lip Kit was going to play an incredible role as a dupe for Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit. Yes, it does contain a matching lip pencil, and liquid matte lipstick, but that’s just about as much excitement as you are going to get out of this $9 kit.

The formulation is horrible, and the shade selection is meh. There are five shades in total; 3 nude (Echelon, Noble, Reign-isn’t that a Kylie shade?) one vampy berry (Royal), and a red called Regal. Can you guess which shade I chose? Lol.

Okay, so, Regal is not the rich shade of red as it appears on the web and box. Um, looks can be deceiving much? Most definitely. What the shade really looks like is that of a Crayola Crayon in Burnt Orange.

Wonderful! My least favorite color in the crayon box has now been painted on my lips. Yuck!

This was not a flattering lip shade on me at all. No, no, no. It simply did not do. The tone came off as very flat, muted and muddy. Although the formulation is lightweight, and it applied evenly and easily with opaque pigment. The texture was sticky never fully setting into a matte finish. The liquid lipstick was also super drying. Sorry boys and gals, but I am not exactly sure of its longevity. I literally wore it for about five minutes and had to remove the color because it was so uncomfortable to keep sitting on my lips. FYI: I had to use makeup remover wipes. This liquid lipstick did not budge, adding more salt to the wound. My lips were so sore and chapped afterwards. The only positive I found in this lip kit was the lip pencil. It’s very creamy, has nice pigment, and applies smoothly.

Makeup Revolution seriously needs to work on their lipstick formulations. I have yet to fall in love with a MUR lip product. Back to Ulta you go Retro Luxe! It was nice knowing you.

Have you purchased Makeup Revolution’s Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit? What do you think? Love it or hate it?

Stay beautiful! Xo.

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.
