NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna and Raquel

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna and Raquel

It seems like every time I go to Sephora I pick up a new NARS Audacious Lipstick or two. This last time I went I got Anna and Raquel. I’ve written about these here and here and I really love them!

There are around 30 shades or so at Sephora and I want practically all of them. But they are rather pricey at $32.00 each, so I try and limit myself. But it’s hard! I love these so much because they are incredibly creamy and soooo pigmented. They just might be my current favorite lipstick on earth. They are that good. I also love the magnetic closure and the embossed NARS on them.

Too Faced Melted Metal Metallic Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Metal

Too Faced Melted Metal Metallic Lipstick has arrived at VVHQ and I’ve got all the details and swatches for you!

So as you probably already know, these come in the same kind of tube and same formula as the original Melted Liquified Lipsticks (which I LOVE) but these have a metallic twist. They aren’t really as metallic as you may think though. They have some metallic shimmery stuff going on but they don’t really look truly metallic on the lips. I am actually thankful for that because I feel like true metallic lips aren’t very wearable and can be very hard to pull off in normal day-to-day situations.

Milani Fierce Foil Lipgloss

Milani Fierce Foil Lipgloss

Love super sparkly, shiny lips? Then the new limited edition Milani Fierce Foil Lipgloss shades might be for you!

This new line of glosses, named after Italy’s “starriest cities” comes in six shades and each one features multidimensional pearlescent shimmer. They have a hydrating smooth formula (no grit here) and a texture that isn’t sticky. They smell like caramel, which isn’t my favorite but that’s a matter of personal preference. The wand is a flat dual-sided flocked style which makes applying them easy.

The shades are Milan (taupe/gold), Florence (deep red), Capri (light lavender), Rome (light nude), Venice (powdery pink) and Sardinia (bright orange).

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm Review

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm is a product I have been hearing about for what seems like forever. I was at CVS not too long ago and they had a two for one sale (or something like that) so I decided it was time to check them out for myself.

There are a few different kinds of these I have discovered from their website. There are the original ones, Crystal ones, Electro ones and a medicated one called Dr. Rescue. They are all packed with hydrating ingredients and claim to last for 8 hours. Most of them have some kind of really light tint to them. I decided to try out two original shades called Oh Orchid! and Petal Rebel and two of the limited edition Crystal shades (these have micro-crystal particles in them) called Pink Quartz and Mirrored Mauve.
