A Liquid Lipstick that Will Make You Want to Wear It: Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

Hey everyone!

Today's post is on the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick. I remember first seeing this at Generation Beauty and initially dismissing it as "another liquid lipstick". I think given the trend of liquid lipsticks coming out, it can get overwhelming. While I was at The Makeup Show LA, I tried the Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipsticks out while at Frends and oh my gosh it was like a revelation.

Learn How to 2-in-1 with Make Up for Ever Pro Sculpting Lip

Hey everyone! 

Today's review is on the Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Lip in 11 Rust. This Pro Sculpting Lip is new addition to the Pro Sculpting Collection and joins the Pro Sculpting Brow and Pro Sculpting Palette which was added to the range for Spring 2016.

Given that everything lately seems to be all about contouring and sculpting your face, I was curious to see how the concept translated over with lip products. The Pro Sculpting Lip in particular is a 2 in 1 product, with a lipstick on one side and a cream to powder highlighter on the other side. The cream to powder highlighter can be used to accentuate the cupid's bow or the center of your lip to add a multi-dimensional effect to your usual lip look. 

I got the shade 11 Rust, which has a muted strawberry red lipstick and white gold cream to powder highlighter.

Go on a Sweet Adventure with Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette

Hey everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette, their third installment in the Chocolate Bar Palette line.

Initially I had some difficulty getting into th
e palette because the colors aren't organized from lightest to deepest or from matte to shimmery shades. However, I saw Kat's post where she viewed the palette in halves and it totally blew my mind and made me see the palette in a whole different light.

It's not an overly warm palette; there's a nice mix of cooler browns, warmer browns, and some brighter pops of color that make the palette more than the usual brown eyeshadow palette. It's also got the signature cocoa scent that makes it smell absolutely delicious.

Shake Up Your Lips with Lancôme's Juicy Shaker in Walk the Lime

Hey everyone! 

Today I'm reviewing Lancome's newest lip product, the Juicy Shaker. The Juicy Shaker is Lancome's take on the Korean oil lip tint. Lip Tints are super popular with Korea and Japan and this launch isn't surprising given the popularity of Korean and Japanese innovations in Western cosmetics. 



You might be wondering, what makes an oil lip tint better than a water-based lip tint/stain? Oil lip tints tend to be much more moisturizing than water-based lip tints, which provide color but can be drying on the lips. Oil lip tints tend to have a shinier/glossier finish whereas water-based lip tints/stains dry to a more matte or satin finish (which again, can feel drying). If you have issues with dry lips, you'll might prefer an oil lip tint as they can be more forgiving when your lips aren't in perfect condition.

The range comes in 20 colors with each color having its own corresponding scent. I have the shade Walk the Lime, which is scented like a lime sherbet.
