Coloured Raine matte liquid paint

Coloured Raine is a paraben and gluten free brand, that’s also vegan friendly and cruelty free. I’ve tried their liquid lipsticks in the past and i was very impressed with the colour pay off, longevity and the comfort on my lips!

The only con i have is that they are a bit on the pricey side, at £15, which is a bit steep for a lipstick, just my thought. Now i usually wait till there’s a sale on Beauty Bay so i can take advantage, which is what i did this time around.

Here’s a little run down on their matte liquid paint:

”A highly pigmented matte finish liquid lipstick in a variety of shades. ” It is opaque and has a light weight feel. It goes on as liquid and dries to a matte finish which is intense and will stay all day . It claims to be smudge proof.

Are they smudge proof? Yes! Are they intense? Yes! just apply two to three coats and you’ll get great colour pay off. Here are a few swatches i did.

This one is called “Classy” it is a pink- tinged white. If you are of a dark or deeper skin tone, i’d suggest using a brown lip liner. If you are light to medium, then just apply it as is and you are good to go.

This is “Whatever” and it’s a true mocha, one of my favourites. Would go nicely on medium to dark skin tones.

Excuse the silly face, haha. What’s life without a little silliness sometimes? Now this shade is also a favourite of mine, i wear this shade all year round. Suitable for all skin tones, the name is “Roulette”, a dark rouge with purple undertones.

Which was your favourite? Check video linked below to see what other shades i swatched. Thanks for stopping by, happy Friday.

Rimmel stay matte liquid lipstick review

As a Drugstore liquid lipstick i am actually impressed. Rimmel came out with 15 shades of their stay matte liquid lip colour, ranging from nudes, pinks to very dark shades. The collection has a wide selection of shades that’ll compliment any skin tone.

I picked up 5 shades and i’m quite happy with my choices. I’ve tried numerous Drugstore and high end liquid lipsticks and end up tossing them to the side!

These liquid lipsticks claim to be-

Kiss-proof

Waterproof

Touch-proof

12 hr wear

Lipsticks can get very messy,  especially when you kiss someone say on the cheeks or you drink from a bottle or glass, most of it comes right off! How annoying is that? Now these bad boys from Rimmel won’t do that, once they are properly dried, they are locked into the lips and won’t go anywhere for up to 12 hrs. Mind you, i haven’t worn them for that long so i couldn’t say for sure if that’s the case, but i do know they are indeed smudge proof . There’s also the discomfort to contend with when it comes on to some liquid lipsticks, they often times leave your lips dry and looking blotchy, i haven’t experienced this with Rimmel, so i’m delighted.

Pros-

Affordable

Long lasting

Not drying

Great pigmentation

Cons-

Some goes on patchy

You’ll need about 2-4 coats(depending on how intense you like it to be)

Takes about 45 secs to a min to dry completely matte

This shade is called ‘Heartbeat’- A beautiful cerise pink.

This one is ‘Blue Iris’- A deep purple with blue undertones.

I do have three more which i swatched and reviewed on my channel, so be sure to check it out, the link will be provided below.

They retail for £5.99, and i got mine from Superdrug in the UK, however i’m almost certain you’ll be able to get your hands on them from any beauty store.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.

Love

OPV Beauty matte lipstick swatches

You ought to know by now that i’m a complete lipstick junkie, haha! Guilty as charged, i was surfing the internet and saw Beauty Bay pop up, so what did i do? Clicked the link and went right into shopping mode. Oh boy, maybe i need help or not!

I was due for some new lipsticks anyway as i do get bored easily of what’s in my collection. I saw OPV and decided that i should give them a whirl. Few hours later i had five liquid lipsticks in my basket and some other bits and pieces, which you will no doubt see featured here soon.

I find myself gravitating a lot towards nudes and nudish pink lipsticks lately as they are so subtle yet flattering. It also depends on how it’s worn as some nude lipsticks require a brown lip liner to make it look somewhat decent on women of colour.

Now here are some of the lipsticks i picked up.

This one is called Boss B- It is a dusky pink. I had to pair it with Nyx lip liner in ‘cocoa’ to make it a bit more subtle and wearable on my skin tone.IMG_1436

Can someone say barbie? Haha, ok i’m not the biggest fan of this shade but i thought it would be fun for the Summer. I definitely need to tone this down a whole lot! I might use a lighter shade in the middle to give it an ombre effect. This shade is called ‘Resist’ a bright and vibrant pink.IMG_1439

I’m in love with this red called ‘Silencer’, it suits my skin tone so well. It gives me a regal, classy feel! Kind of old Hollywood vibe. This is a true red shade.IMG_1434

Pros;

1- lightweight

2.Comfortable on the lips

3.Nicely pigmented

4.Smudge proof

Cons;

1.Streaky whilst applying

2.Slight paint scent

3.Might need to apply 2 coats

These lipsticks retail for £8 on Beauty Bay. I really do like them! I have a couple more that i showed on my channel so be sure to have a watch. Have you tried them before? Let me know. Thanks for stopping by.
