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!

Latest Ulta Haul: Urban Decay & Benefit

I am so sorry for the lack of posts lately. We bought a house and are in the process of packing up our apartment and moving things over. But I am excited for the new house since I’ll have my own beauty room and office! I will be starting a YouTube channel shortly after we move (and after I get everything set up), but in the meantime you can still follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Now to the post. About a week ago I placed an order on Ulta.com after they sent me an email that Benefit just launched their new brow collection online. I normally don’t do anything with my brows, but had heard great things about this new collection so I thought I’d give it a try. Loving the packaging for both Goof Proof Brow Pencil and KaBrow! I have yet to use it (I overslept this morning and barely made it out the door on time), and I’m excited to give my eyebrows a cleaner, less patchy look. Have you used these new Benefit brow items? I’d love to know. Since I purchased the Benefit items, they sent me a free variety pack. Love those items, too.

Also in my haul was another Urban Decay Vice lipstick. I have been obsessed with this collection since it first launched. This is the second lipstick I’ve purchased – I am obsessed with their comfort matte finish. The color I purchased this time around is called Unicorn and is a pale, peachy nude color. When I applied Unicorn today, it seemed brighter than what the shade looks like in the lipstick tube. To darken it up, I took a little bit of Urban Decay’s Backtalk (another Vice, comfort-matte lipstick) and dabbed on my lips. Worked really well, actually.

Here’s a photo of the lip color. What do you think of this shade? Let me know in the comments.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick First Impression

While making a purchase on Ulta.com, I needed an add-on item to get free shipping. That day, Urban Decay had just launched their Vice lipsticks (100 different shades in 6 different finishes), so I decided to pick a color and lip liner and add it to my bag to get that free shipping.

What a good decision that was! I’m in love with the color I got, as well as the finish. I am obsessed with matte finishes right now, so when I saw that the Vice lipsticks come in a comfort matte, I had to try it. The shade I purchased was Backtalk (a mauve-nude pink) in a comfort matte finish. The comfort matte finish feels like a regular, creamy lipstick, but looks 90% matte after it dries. I am really digging it. I will probably purchase a few other colors. Look at that packaging! Loving it. The Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on lip pencil in Rush (pictured) is super pigmented, so keep that in mind. Ulta’s site has a perfect couples section that matches a shade of the Vice lipstick to a lip liner, so give that a whirl if you’re interested.

Have you tried Urban Decay’s new Vice lipstick? Let me know in the comments.
