Makeup Revolution Iconic Matte Lipstick Swatches 

Y’all I’m trying to post more, can’t you tell?! I’m really thinking about making a set schedule for posting days but then I don’t want to fail at keeping it up. If any of you have suggestions on how to come up with a good way to schedule posts let me know. 

I’m trying to get some makeup out of my “to film” pile. I figured instead of having to do the filming and editing I can just take the pics, crop, edit and upload–easy peasy!

These are matte formula lipsticks that lasts for about 5 hours. Expect transfer. They are opaque for application, but they’re not a hard matte finish. These can be purchased in Ulta for $5.00. 

For those days when you just desire a comfortable matte lipstick in non liquid form, I think these will saffice. Inexpensive, comfortable and quality, that’s what we’re always looking for right!

What are your “go to” inexpensive non-liquid lipstick matte lipsticks?


February Buys

I know I haven’t posted a lot this month (let’s blame it on itbeing a short month mmm k) but if it’s any consolation I haven’t been holding out on much. I haven’t bought much (in my strong opinion).
Here’s what I did pick up…..

Some products from Makeup Revolution which is sold at Ulta, for very reasonable prices. 

Products from the new Wet n Wild LE Queen of my Heart collection. You can find these now in Walgreens and CVS. The faux mink lashes by Ardell I picked up in Ulta.

These patches I plan to put on a shirt, purchased from H&M.

Got me some “tools” from Real Techniques. I really love this brush for applying foundation, this will be my second buy of this style. I heard how soft this beauty blender is so no doubt I’m a check it out!!

Lastly I bit the budget and bought something I’ve been wanting for a spell!! Yes you’ve guessed it, the Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 Damier Ebene. I’m so happy I made this purchase, I got this bag preloved but in mint condition. 

P.S. The handbag charms are new as well. The Kylie bag charm was from her winter collection. The lip charm I got from Walmart for $2.88 (FTW right!!!!).

Sooooooo that’s it for me…… for now lol. What’s NEW with you all??? 

Ulta Matte Lip Cream Swatches

Happy Friday beauties, it’s time for the freaking weekend!!!

Jumping right into the deets of this post, I picked these 4 lippies up from said store in the title–ULTA!!

I was holding off getting these for a while because I saw reviews of them and didn’t know if I’d like them. I got 2 free since I bought two, I believe they retail $9.

Here is Artistic (applied patchy this is 3 layers).


Here is Striking (applied patchy this is 2 layers)

Here is Passionate  

Here is Allusive 👍🏾

It’s Friday so I’m giving you a short review. Here are my thoughts because I did wear one for the majority of the day yesterday.


  • Affordable ($9)
  • Variety of colors
  • Smell is tolerable
  • Doesn’t have a drying matte feeling, it’s comfortable
  • Lasts about 5 to 6 hours
  • Removes easily (at least with Aquaphor)
  • Doesn’t stain


  • Isn’t a dried matte finish more like a creamy matte finish.
  • Pink formulas apply patchy
  • Takes 10 minutes or more to dry to a non shiny matte finish.
  • Starts fading in the middle of your lips horribly, it bunches up and looks like your lips are chapped.

In my opinion when shopping for liquid lipsticks, keep in mind that lip creams won’t always dry to a matte dried finish–if that makes sense. With the Milani Amore matte lip creams they did dry down to a dried hard

matte finish.

My favorite color of this bunch is the purple-vamp color (Allusive).

Have you tried these lippies? If so how do you rate them?

Thanks for reading, have a great weekend and don’t forget to stay virtually connected with me 💋…… 

Too Faced Cat Eyes Purrfection pallette 

Hey beauties, happy hump day!! I know I’m off to a slow start with posting this week but I manage to jump start my mojo today. The Mr has landed a new and exciting job which he started on Monday so we’ve been busy managing our time, we now work the same hours M-F (yippee)!!

So let me show you all this little goody box I purchased from Ulta on Monday. I don’t own any Too Faced products, this caught my eye as it was displayed right by the door (they know what they’re up to lol). It is $35 plus you get a free gift. 

You can see from the pics the eyeshadows are namedcat-affiliated. I love the leopard print brush and the color scheme of the eyeshadows. As a gift you get a Better Than Sex mascara, another eye primer cream and a black eye pencil. 

Do you own this product? If so, how do you rate it?
