LA Colors Matte Lipgloss 

I hope I’m not sounding like a broken record each time I mention you to follow me on IG, but seriously you should follow me tho lol.

I posted a pic of this tumbler on IG a few days ago. I picked this up from Family Dollar for $5, there’s a style of nail polishes or lip glosses or Matte lip glosses. You know me being that me and matte go together and all, I needs my matte-ness!! 

These matte lippies don’t have any cool names or unique colors but if you’re looking for inexpensive stocking stuffers for the holidays, they got chu!! They do dry fast and down to a hard matte, but they still transfer, lasts about 4 hours. I can’t complain about these whether they’re $5 or $50 I like to try them all, compare and contrast…..

Cute packing, reminds me of the Smashbox Matte lippies…

I wanted to compare the two reds and no they’re not the same…

So what say you, have I lead you on a mission to grab these for yourself or for someone else?

Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Cream Lip Stain 

Someone in the beauty community let the cat outta the bag many moons ago that liquid lipsticks have taken the beauty world by storm! It’s no secret, no even Victoria’s!! I mean everybody and their mama’s mama is getting their hands all up in the lip-Aid lol. 

You know I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t review Victoria’s Secrets’ latest release of their version of Velvet Matte lipsticks. I got a email last week stating that this is their newest beauty news so you know how I do, skipped into my local VS store 2 copp a few! I got these during the B2G2F promo, they retail for $14. There are 5 colors available but I wasn’t feeling the last nude color.

For the most part they don’t stand apart from any drugstore cream lipstick on a stick. There isn’t anything unique about the formula nor the colors so in my opinion you don’t NEED these–definitely not for $14. You’d just be paying for a lipstick that has Victoria’s Secret on it but the secret’s out Victoria– we see you!! 

If you have any of NYX’s soft matte lip creams (or the likes) you can miss these cause they’re just the copy cat cousins lol!! These are matte (a very comfortable matte) but they transfer messily onto everything however, they apply opaque & have the standard dofa applicator. 

I hope they decide to delve into the actual liquid lipstick formula– I’d for sure be all here for trying it.

Profusion Velvet Matte Lipstick Swatches

*Press Sample*

If you watched my latest YouTube video where I showcased me doing an unboxing when I got this box in the mail, these lipsticks will look familiar. If you missed seeing the video here’s a chance to watch it as many times as you like HERE.

What I like about these lipsticks is that they’re very comfortable to wear. Even though they’re not the hard drying matte lipsticks I’ve become accustomed to wearing,  they do dry down matte. One thing about these I wish were different is that they remain nameless so no cutesy name.

As I said, I received this along with two other products to review via Profusion’s Beauty Insider program. You can apply to become a member using the link I’ve included in my video description.

Subtle Makeup Look 

This is my basic everyday work makeup look….. I turned my blush into a little shimmer blush look without knowing lol. The blush is from a beauty trends blush pallet I found in Burlington Coat Factory a long time ago. The shimmer is a highlight by Makeup Revolution.

My eyeshadow is a copper color from Juvia’s Palace Nubian I pallet.
