Too Faced Melted Lipstick Dupe

Too Faced Melted Lipsticks are really popular in the makeup community as well as their new liquid matte lipsticks, but they can get a little expensive. They are priced at $21 a piece. Luckily for those of you on a budget that want the shades of the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, there are 2 dupes for nude/pink shades that I think you guys are going to love! The dupes are from Maybelline from their Color Jolt lipsticks which are priced at $7.70 a piece. Thats a $13.30 difference! You can basically get 3 Maybelline Color Jolts for the price of one Too Faced Melted. 
So lets first compare packaging. Both are in squeezy tubes, the Too Faced ones are just a little longer and slimmer. Another difference is the gold details on the Too Faced tubes. 
The applicators are also super similar. The only difference is the Too Faced one (top) has multiple tiny holes that the product comes out of and the Maybelline one (bottom), as you can tell in the picture, has one where the product comes out. The formulas are also very similar. I would say the Maybelline is a little bit thicker than the Too Faced. 
Above are swatches and you can see the similarities. L to R is Too Faced Nude, Maybelline Stripped Down, Too Faced Peony, Maybelline Never Bare. There are slight difference as Stripped Down is a little darker than Nude and Peony is slightly darker than Never Bare. Still I would consider these to be dupes because of how close they are. Below is a picture of the swatches without natural lighting.

Amuse Bouche Lipsticks by Bite Beauty

I had a surprise on my doorstep last week and it was a box from Influenster! If you don't know what Influenster is, basically when you sign up you answer your "Snaps" which are just questions about things you've tried before, what you like, etc. It's not always about makeup, though. Sometimes it's food, other times it's electronics. The more active you are and the more points you have the more likely you are to get what they call their "VoxBox". I was randomly selected but I was sooo excited when I found out it was a Bite Beauty VoxBox. If you've followed me for awhile you know that Bite Beauty lip products are my jaaaammmm. You can also review products on Influenster. 

They sent 3 of Bite Beauty's new Amuse Bouche lipsticks. The shades they sent are Pepper, Gazpacho, and Beetroot. They are all stuunnnninnngg and so pigmented! I didn't expect anything less from Bite, though. My favorite out of the three is, of course, Pepper because it's a neutral shade. I'm all about those nudes. 

The packaging is sleek per usual with matte grey, almost rubber like feel to it. I don't know how to describe it but I love it. I also love the "B" imprint in the actual lipstick as well as the "bite" at the bottom of the tube. It's the little details that matter. 

The formula is very comfortable and hydrating. They have a slight sheen to them. I literally want to purchase every nude shade from this line!



L to R: Beetroot, Pepper, Gazpacho

Melt for Lippies

Melt Cosmetics is coming out with 4 new lipsticks but they haven't been revealed yet. Can you guess what they will be?! I'm thinking maybe 2 pastels, a neon and a dark shade. I love when companies do this, it leaves us hanging on and wanting more. Good job, marketing team lol. I only have the shade Dark Room by Melt but I would love to own more. What are your thoughts on this brand?

New on the Market: Drugstore & High End

Hi babes! Sorry I've been MIA lately, I've been super busy with YouTube and a bunch of other stuff. So let's just dive in to the new goodies that will be or have already released!

First up is a NYX product that will be coming out in June. SOOOOO soon! This is their new Liquid Suede lipstick. I can't imagine these being any more than $5 - $8 seeing as they're drugstore, although their prices have been increasing a lot lately. It looks like they made some beautiful neutral colors I can't wait to get my hands on that pink one!  
 Next is 6 Long Lasting 16 hour blushes by Too Faced. These have cute heart packaging and adorable names! These are a part of their Fall 2015 line so I'm not sure when these will be releasing. I'm assuming possibly in August? And do I spy their new foundation in the background?! "Born This Way" is what it is called. That should be releasing around the same time. I've never tried a Too Faced foundation so I'm excited to try that. I think I definitely want to get my hands on the Baby Love blush too! Eeeeek, I'm already starting a Fall wish list and it's not even officially Summer!
Next are the Maybelline Creamy Matte lipsticks. These have been the talk of the town all over the place. But, wait, because there's more! They are coming out with ten new shades that will be permanent! Clay Crush looks beautiful for Spring! OMG. I'm not sure if these are out already or not, but check your local drugstores and Ulta's because they may be sneaking onto the shelves already.
 Last is a new line from e.l.f. called Beautifully Bare which includes a blush ($4), blending brush ($6), foundation serum ($8), lash tint mascara ($4), defining mascara ($4), and a lip tint (not pictured $5) . They mentioned on their Instagram that there is a limited quantity for their launch so hurry while these last! I am definitely interested in getting the blush, foundation serum and that blending brush!

Too Faced Steal

Shout out to my girl Hayley who always keeps me up to date on deals. Too Faced is having a great one! Get a lipgloss and lipstick for only $32! This is a 24 hour deal so hurry while it lasts. Just use promo code: LIPLOVE at checkout. I suggest Naked Dolly for a lipstick. It's a beautiful nude color. Any of their lipsticks are great, though. Their formula is very smooth and creamy (I actually kind of hate that word lol)

March/April Favorites

It's been quite some time since I've done a favorites post, but here are the products I've been loving for the last month and a half!
Maybelline Matte Lipstick in Lust For Blush: I picked up the infamous Divine Wine and I decided to try a pink from their matte collection and this is the one I went with. I never saw swatches so when I brought it home and opened the tube I was a bit disappointed and didn't think I would like it on my skin tone. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on and I fell in love. It is such a beautiful color and perfect for Spring time.
Bobbi Brown Pink Glow Highlighter: This beauty was a limited edition item (I'm sorry!) but it is just absolutely gorgeous on the skin. I thought I had a bad batch when I received it because as you can see, it's very patchy with pink and white, but I was told it is supposed to be that way. This highlighter literally gives me liffeeeeeee!
Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara: There was a lot of hype about the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and I wasn't all that impressed with it. I've also heard some hype on this mascara so I was a little hesitant on trying this one. I did really like it, though and it has been my go-to lately, especially for those no-makeup-makeup days.
Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil: I've mentioned this and had a whole review and demo on this baby. It is just the best at removing makeup and it is so gentle. It doesn't tug, burn, or leave any residue. I will definitely be repurchasing this baby one it runs out. I know it looks like it's still full, but that's because it's laying down. I promise it's sadly almost gone lol.
Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer: This bronzer is perfect for fair skin babes like myself. The original Chocolate Soleil is a bit too dark for me so it can easily look muddy on me, but this one is just beautiful.
Tarte Tartelette Palette: I'm sure you're all tired of hearing about this darn palette. It's pretty much everyone's go-to palette, including my own. I love the matte shades and the neutrals, plus the packaging is adorable!
NYX Buttergloss in Éclair: I'm not big on glosses, but lately on days where I don't wear a full face of makeup, I'll throw this baby on and it gives my lips a little life. It adds just enough color and shine to complete my look.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Ecru: You're all probably wondering, if this is one of your favorites, why isn't there and Estee Lauder Double Wear in the picture? Well, there is lol. It's the small little sample sized bottle. I haven't run out of it yet and I've been using it like crazy. So once this baby runs out I'll be picking up a full sized bottle.
Milani Rose Blush in Romantic Rose: Can we just talk about the detail on this blush? Dear lawwwdd. The color is perfect for Spring, but blush can be tricky if it's too pigmented. You don't want to look like you just dipped your brush and packed it on. So a light hand it the trick with this one and you'll end up looking airbrushed.

Liquid Lipsticks: Jeffree Star

Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage lately and everyone is loving them! But Jeffree Star has done it again with his unique shades! There have been sneak peeks of 3 new shades on both the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Instagram. Jawbreaker, Blue Velvet, and Abused will be releasing in June! I am loving Jawbreaker for Summertime; it is such a beautiful pastel blue. And Blue Velvet reminds me of a liquid version of Melt Cosmetics IDGAF lipstick, so gorgeous!

Be Bold, Buy Blitzed

Here is another beautiful, bold lip color. This one is by Melt Cosmetics. Available April 14th. It's a beautiful teal color and the perfect bright color for summer. Melt always has daring shades that push the boundaries a little bit which is great for those of you that are more daring and edgy. Do you dare to be bold? How do you feel about this color? Like it, love it, need it, hate it?

Here is a swatch of their famous emerald green lipstick Blow next to their new beautiful teal shade Blitzed

Dupe Alert!: LimeCrime Cashmere

Gerard Cosmetics is spitting out new lipstick shades like fire! They have come out with the ever so famous "greige" or grey/beige named Underground. For those of you that are no longer supporting LimeCrime, this looks like a very close dupe to LC's velvetine in Cashmere. 

Here is a swatch that @prettylittlemzgrace posted! Left is LC Cashmere, right is GC Underground.

More Liquid Lipsticks from ABH?!

We all know Anastasia Beverly Hills came out with an extensive line of lipglosses and liquid lipsticks and it looks like they have more liquid lipstick shades up their sleeve! Norvina posted this picture today and captioned "Liquid lipstick is CRAFT and she's coming for you this summer. Consider her the anti-summer". I'm anxious to see if there are any other shades and what they look like! What do all of you think of this color? Like it, love it, need it, hate it?

New Summer Shades!: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks

Stila came out with 5 new liquid lipstick shades for Summer PLUS new beautiful gold packaging. I absolutely adore the new packaging! The new colors are Rosa (bubblegum pink), Como (bright violet), Bella (bright pink), Venezia (bright red), and Almafi (coral pink). I definitely need to get my hands on Rosa because it is literally screaming my name. They are still the same price as the other Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks ($22) and you can find these on Stila's website here.

New Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks

Kat Von D just posted a sneak peek of her new liquid lipsticks! There are 16 new shades, including Lolita 2 (the original formula) and they will be coming out in July. Get ready for it! We all know KVD is edgy and pushes the limits so you can't expect anything less than that. Everything she comes out with is genuis. What are your thoughts? Like it, love it, hate it?

This shade is called Nosferatu which KVD herself described as "a romantic, blood-crimson".
This shade is called Witches which was described as "Pitch as dark, Black as night". 
This shade is called Echo which is described as "satin blue". I am loving this one!

New Liquid Lipstick

Dose of Colors is releasing a new liquid lipstick on March 27th! They have a popular shade called Berry Me and well, this one is probably going to be just as popular seeing as the name is Berry Me 2. Although it's more bold than a nude lip, it is a very pretty magenta color for those with enough guts to wear it. I'm in love with it. What are your thoughts on the color, the name, the company?
