National Lipstick Day

Lipstick has always been a staple in my makeup collection, however, I haven’t religiously wore it until recently. Something about a matte liquid long-lasting lipstick intrigues me. So, in honor of National Lipstick Day, I decided to list some of my favorite lipsticks here, followed by a gallery of some of my favorite colors I’ve swatched. I’d love to know what brand you use for your go-to lip color, as well as types (satin, matte, gloss, etc.). Leave a comment below to tell me!

Note: Too Faced is offering 15% off their lipsticks in honor of National Lipstick Day, so take advantage!

Grav3yardgirl x Tarte Swamp Queen Palette First Impressions

If you’re an avid YouTube beauty vlogger follower like me, guaranteed you’ve stumbled across Grav3yardgirl’s channel. The quirkiness of Bunny is so appealing and her looks are super unique. So when other people like Jeffree Star and MannyMUA were reviewing her new palette (a collab with Tarte Cosmetics), I knew I had to buy it. I mainly purchase my makeup goods from Ulta, so the moment they told me it was available online, I added it to my cart and bought the palette. Unfortunately, the liquid lipsticks that came with the palette were sold separately and sold out when I last looked (I may have to go to my nearest Ulta location to purchase).

In Grav3yardgirl’s palette you’ll find a brush, a bronzer color, a highlight and a blush. You’ll also find nine eyeshadow colors including some matte, some shimmer and some glitter. The names are super cute. When I swatched after I got the palette (and then stupidly deleted the photo of the swatches), the colors are super pigmented. This palette helps you accomplish a full-face glam or natural look. I can’t wait to experiment more with these colors. Take a look at the palette below. I’m in love with the packaging and the sturdiness of it, too.
