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.
Queen B, Stone, Lovecraft
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.
Most 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.
The 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.
I will soon be doing a post to show you all what products and techniques I use for my flawless foundation routine.
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.

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

As 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.

Thanks for stopping by. I have lots of blog posts planned for the next few weeks.
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.
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.
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.
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend so far. I was finally able to relax and get some much needed sleep. I dragged my husband to the movies today to watch Cinderella. Best movie ever!!! I didn’t have much time to get ready this morning so I did a simple look with a pop of color (my go-to look).
Today is a very special shade of the day because it features my FAVORITE lipstick of all time! Every time I can’t decide on a lipstick to wear I ALWAYS reach for this one. It’s the perfect shade of red with a tint of pink and a blue undertone.
The NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are one of my favorite lipsticks. They are very easy to apply, perfect when you’re on the go. The only negative is having to sharpen them. Dragon Girl is my favorite color but I also recommend Damned, Mysterious Red, and Train Bleu.

Ok so maybe I am over deep reds and plums. I am sooooooooo ready for spring! The weather here in Seattle has been beautiful lately so I decided to try out the Sephora Cream Lip Stain I mentioned in this post. This one is in the shade 12 African Violet. This color is so gorgeous, it screams spring and summer. It’s a beautiful pink violet.
Sephora reformulated and came out with new shades not long ago. I have a couple of the old formula and I wasn’t really impressed. I felt they transferred a lot and became quite clumpy after a while. I was a little nervous how this one was going to wear but I ended up being SUPER impressed. I had it on my lips for about 7 to 8 hours and it was perfect! These are a little more moisturizing than the older formula and they do not clump AT ALL! I ate twice and the color held up very well. It did transfer a little but nothing too serious. I went to Sephora and they finally had Marvelous Mauve in stock so I purchased it. I would recommend a lip liner to prevent any feathering. I wore Make Up For Ever’s Lip Liner Perfector. It’s a colorless lip liner so it’s perfect for any lipstick!
These lipsticks are a must have. So go get chu some!
Stop what you’re doing, go to Target, and buy this lipstick! Ok, go after you read this post.

Today I am wearing Sonia Kashuk’s Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Poppy Nude. These instantly reminded me of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. This shade is a bright red orange. It does have a velvet texture and applies very easy on the lips. It lasted all day so I am super impressed! This color is beautiful and for less than $8 it’s a must have! I definitely want to buy more. They have 8 other shades. If you like these then you’ll love the NARS.
