Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick Review- Queen B

 

I’m back with another liquid lipstick review. This time around I’m reviewing the newish Too Faced liquid lipsticks. I was lucky enough to pick up Queen B in store at Sephora. I think this is one of their most popular shades and I can totally see why because it’s beautiful! I’m currently obsessed with nudes and mauves so of course I had to get this one.

You can purchase these at the price of $21. This shade is always out of stock everywhere, but it’s currently in stock at Ulta.com. I LOVE this packaging. It’s very different from the typical liquid lipstick packaging.

Queen B is described as a “matte soft mauve.” This has a slight warm undertone. It has the perfect amount of pink and mauve. The closest colors I have to this are Dose of Colors Stone ($18+ shipping) and Kat Von D Lovecraft ($21). You can check out the comparison below.

I like this formula because it is light and comfortable. It’s less drying than KVD.  I’d say it lasted on me for about a good 6 hours. I found this really easy to apply.  The applicator is very similar to the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks. I also didn’t noticing any transferring.

Based off of this lipstick only I can say I really like these lipsticks. I would definitely recommend trying at least one. I’m curious as to how the brighter and darker shades wear. I have my eyes on Mrs. Roper and Naughty by Nature. I will update you guys once I try those shades.

Shade of the Day- Lolita II

IMG_1993Most of you know I love Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks. She recently came out with a Lolita Lip Duo. It includes a mini Lolita and a new shade Lolita II. You know I had to get my hands on this. Unfortunately it’s sold out online, but I would check in stores to see when it comes out. I believe the full size Lolita 2 should be out Dec/Jan.

The formula of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are better than ever! They are easier to apply and they are build-able. There aren’t very many liquid lipsticks out there that you can add layer after layer. They usually get all clumpy and flakey. I think I applied about 4 to 5 layers.
FullSizeRenderThe OG Lolita is a brown pink nude shade and Lolita II is a peachy pink nude. I think Double Dare is pretty similar but it’s more pink. I really love Lolita II, it’s a great nude and I think it’ll look great on all skin types. I definitely recommend purchasing this duo, especially if you don’t already own Lolita. I did not wear a liner with it.

IMG_1936I will soon be doing a post to show you all what products and techniques I use for my flawless foundation routine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Shade of the Day- Nightingale

Today’s shade of the day features MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Nightingale. I mentioned this guy in my MAC Haul post. I figured it would be a good idea to give you a lip swatch. I love wearing MAC Lip Pencils as lipsticks. They are super matte and last all day. They are kind of dry so if you don’t like really dry matte lipsticks, you could always apply a lip balm over it. They can be a little tough to apply but I don’t mind it.

This color is a beautiful berry color. I’m pretty sure it’s similar to Rebel, which is one of MAC’s most popular shades.  I’d definitely recommend this shade for the fall!

I did my eye makeup a little different and I love it. Instead of using my typical liquid liner, I decided to use eyeshadow. I wish I would have used a different bronzer… I guess it’s time to put away my shimmery bronzers and bring out my matte ones.

Shade of the Day- Truffle

Welcome! It’s been a while since I’ve posted… It feels so good to be back!

Truffle

Today’s post includes one of Dose of Colors new shade called Truffle. It’s a neutral shade with of a mauve tint. I really like this color because it’s not too light or too dark. I absolutely love the formula of Dose of Colors liquid lipsticks. They last all day, and do not feather, clump, or transfer.

IMG_1106As you can see it’s pretty different from the other swatches above. Truffle was extremely easy to apply. It is also very pigmented and not as streaky as Bow and Arrow or Lolita. Pure Hollywood is too light for me to wear on its own. I normally wear it MAC’s Whirl lip pencil. With Truffle I used Make Up For Ever’s Lip Line Perfector.

I went for a very minimal look.

Face- Diorskin Nude BB Cream (Medium) mixed with Cover FX drops (G30), Urban Decay Naked concealer, and Hourglass Radiant Bronzer

Eyes- Diorshow brow pencil, MAC Soft Ochre paint pot, Hourglass bronzer in crease, Rimmel Scandaleyes nude liner, Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara, and Clinique Bottom Lash mascara

Thanks for stopping by. I have lots of blog posts planned for the next few weeks.

Stay tuned!

Shade of the Day- Santa Sangre

Today’s shade of the day features one of the new Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipsticks. Santa Sangre is described as a “poison apple.” It’s a beautiful bright red! This one is a must have. You can never have enough red lipsticks. And the formula in this is better than ever. It’s not drying and feels very comfortable.

Shade of the Day- Bachelorette

TGIF!

Today’s Shade of the Day is another Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick. It’s in the shade called Bachelorette. This color is described as a “dark reddish fuchsia.” It’s a vibrant hot pink with a red undertone. I love to wear this when I’m not in the mood to wear a bright pink or a red. It’s a perfect in between color.

I first applied my usual Make Up For Ever Lip Line Perfector. This is my go-to lip pencil when it comes to liquid lipsticks. If your not a fan of liquid lipsticks, a good alternative is MAC All Fired up. Bachelorette is slightly darker.

All makeup worn is featured in May’s Makeup of the Month.

Today’s post features Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid lipstick in L.U.V. ($20). I mentioned this item in my previous post. It is a bright violet with a slight cool undertone. These liquid lipsticks are extra matte and and last all day.

IMG_2122

A lip liner isn’t really necessary but I lightly lined my lips with MAC’s Lip Pencil in Magenta. NARS Audacious lipstick in Angela is a lot lighter. I’d say MAC Heroine is similar as well but I don’t own it.
