Pretty Vulgar On Point Liquid Eyeliner Pen Review:

Help me out here glamour babes, would you? When was the last time I talked about a good liquid eyeliner pen? Must’ve been ages ago because I can’t seem to remember for the life of me.

Now if my memory serves me right, I do believe I received Pretty Vulgar’s On Point Liquid Eyeliner Pen ($22 0.034 oz.) in the mail just last week.It’s pretty darn amazing, and damn pretty too! I loved it from the moment I created a set of two perfect wing tipped eyes in the matter of seconds. Let me not forget to mention the gorgeous intricate detailing of the calligraphy inspired pen as to which the liquid eyeliner lives in. Everything about this pen screams girly/sophisticated. I heart it oh so much! Lord, I can be such a sucker for packaging sometimes, lol. I did not have any issues with the liquid liner drying out like some reviewers after lining one eye. My felt tip was nicely saturated throughout the entire application and produced nice crisp lines across my lids easily and precisely.


But if you do or did happen to come across this minor dilemma, it can be fixed quite quickly. Flip the tip! Pretty Vulgar unlocked a secret for us IG followers that we didn’t know about boys and girls. You can rotate the felt tip to re-saturate and prevent it from drying out! How cool is that?! You’re welcome! I was more than happy to share that fun little tip (no pun intended) with ya’ll. The rich black formula is lightweight, highly pigmented, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, easy to remove, dries quickly, and sets in a beautiful matte finish.

I was totally impressed by the longevity of this liquid eyeliner. It stays on all day long without flaking, cracking, smudging, irritating the eyes, or creating half moon panda eyes above the lids. I’m a huge fan of Pretty Vulgars On Point Liquid Eyeliner Pen. I will definitely re-purchase this again, along with some of their other breathtaking pieces in the collection that I had my eyes on since they launched.

Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip Review:

Stop whatever it is that you are doing glamour babes, I have something to say-Beauty Bakeries Lip Whip Liquid Lipstick ($20 0.17 oz) is anything but ordinary, it simply takes the cake! 
Everyone needs to wrap their lips around this zero calorie, all sweet, vegan friendly treat!

I’ve been dying to try the brands liquid lipstick for ages, so when the right opportunity came my way (Memorial Day Sale! 30% off) I got to cakin. 
Initially I did want Cranberry Stiletto (dark berry red), but sadly it sold out by the time I headed to the Beauty Bakerie Website. That doesn’t mean I couldn’t find another shade. Beauty Bakerie has an array of gorgeous colors that will satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. Mon Cheri did just the thing.

Mon Cheri is a classic beautiful bold red. If you want your lips to stand out, grab this shade. You’ll bring all the boys to the yard.The formulation is lightweight, hydrating, super pigmented, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, does not cake, crack, feather, or bleed, and sets into a lovely matte finish. 
I know I have ranted and raved about liquid lipsticks in the before, but this is by far my favorite. I need to own more shades! STAT! The long lasting wear and color payoff has me sold. I now understand Beauty Bakeries hash tag for their lip whips #whatsmudge. They do not smudge, it’s amazing! Eat and drink until your hearts content (avoid oily foods), the color goes nowhere. I literally had Mon Cheri on my lips all day and the color remained truer than true. I’m so impressed by the formulation. What’s your secret Beauty Bakerie? Is it love?! I bet it’s love.
Since the lip color barely moves on its own, you will need an oil based remover. Might I recommend Beauty Bakeries Lip Whip Remover Pads ($14 for 50 wipes)?Seriously, these pads are awesome as well. All you need is one oil based pad to remove any lip whip from your lips. Definitely a product to look into if other removers haven’t delivered as promised. These totally get the job done in a swipe or two. 

You can grab your confections at BeautyBakerie.com, or if you’re from the San Diego, California area, why not visit their store?! It’s a sweet trip to a cosmetics shop. 

Stay beautiful! Xo.

JD Glow Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick Review:

Happy Friday glamour babes! Quick question. Have you ever heard of J.D. Glow Cosmetics? Don’t feel bad, Neither have I, until a few months back as I was taking a daily scroll through my Instagram feed. The company peaked my curiosity and I ordered a few of their liquid lipsticks to try on for size. J.D Glow Cosmetics was created by two best friends back in 2015-Jennifer and Deandra in Baton Rouge Louisiana. Their cosmetic brand caters to Ladies and Gents of all ages as well as all ethnicities. They aim to create high end quality cosmetics at low prices.” I don’t know about low prices, considering that they charge $15 dollars a piece for their liquid lipsticks. I found that kind of misleading. I was lucky enough to snag three of them during a sale, but there are new and upcoming cruelty free/indie makeup brand companies such as Colourpop that sell their liquid lipsticks ($6) for the fraction of the cost. Just sayin.

J.D. Glow’s Liquid Lipsticks are indeed beautiful. The bold, colorful shades of Fiya Red, Rouge, and Crazen caught my eye, even though I was mostly enamored by the gorgeous packaging. Do I really have to explain the packaging? The photograph speaks volumes, lol.  Fiya Red is a vibrant red orange.Rouge is a red with blue undertone.Crazen is a warm fuchsia red.The formula of these liquid lipsticks have hit and misses. They are lightweight, go on smoothly and evenly, have a creamy, mousse like texture, are highly pigmented, do not streak, are comfortable to wear, and set in a matte finish. However, they do not have long lasting wear, aren’t transfer proof, and the sweet chemically scent is a little off putting. I have been wearing these for months now, which is why it has taken me awhile to review J.D. Glow’s Liquid Lipsticks. I wanted to give them a chance. I thought I may have been applying these incorrectly, but let’s face it, the best way to apply a liquid lipstick is on bare, dry, clean, exfoliated lips. A norm in my liquid lipstick routine. Every time I would eat or take a sip of something, I felt the color slipping off of my lips as it then started to feather and bleed, creating uneven, patchy lips. I got about an hour wear before having to remove the color off my lips entirely. It was a very unflattering look. If not eating or drinking, the color will stay on nicely-approximately 6 hours. 

I am not exactly loving these, so they will be put to the side once I know what to do with them. For now, I’ll just admire the opulent casings that are fit for a queen.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

ELF Beautifully Bare Highlighting Dewy Drops Review:

Happy Hump Day glamour babes! Before I jet set off to the Dominican Republic tomorrow, I wanted to get in one more review for ya’ll, and share my thoughts on ELF’s New Beautifully Bare Highlighting Dewy Drops ($4 for .5oz). I’m loving this product so much right now that it’s coming with me on the trip. 

Details:

The Beautifully Bare Highlighting Dewy Drops with illuminating pigments, bring light to the face for a glowing, dewy looking complexion. These pearlescent drops can be used for strobing and highlighting to create a glowing look. Enriched with antioxidant Vitamin E. Ideal for all skin tones and types. Cruelty free and vegan!

This is a liquid highlighter and comes in only one shade, Illuminating, which is pinky champagne gold. Hopefully ELF will make a wider shade range. I’d love to see more colors, and at $4 a piece, I’d have no problem buying every single one, lol. 

You can use this highlighter a number of ways- alone on your no makeup days, mixed with foundation/BB Cream, or apply a few drops to your daytime face cream. The finish produces a beautiful soft fresh faced, dewy glow. 

The formula is lovely. It’s lightweight, pigmented, hydrating, smooth, has a subtle glossy finish, comfortable to wear, easy to apply and layers pretty well. I did not find the Dewy Drops to be oily as some reviewers have mentioned, nor did It make my skin feel any oilier than it already is. True, it does feel slick, not a heavy slick when applying, but I thought that was the purpose of a liquid highlighter that’s intended to create a dewy (wet) effect. Maybe I’m over analyzing the product, it’s just a matter of opinion anyway. I found the fingertip method to be messy during makeup applications, so I opted for the next best thing, my beauty blender! It worked superbly. Use a light, dabbing motion and watch your illuminated complexion come to life. 

The longevity varied as I played beautifully with this highlighter.

Alone-5 hours

Using a setting powder or spray-6 to 7 hours

If you want to intensify the glow, you can add a highlighter powder on top. You’ll get about a 7 hour wear by using this technique too. 

So, what do you think?! Will ELF’s Beautifully Bare Highlighter Dewy Drops be your next Target purchase?! 

Go ahead and give it a glow. That’s my highlighter motto.

Stay beautiful! Xo.
