Sephora Pink Souffle Cream Lip Stain: Review & Swatches

Image
This liquid lipstick / stain is only $13! This was the first color in this line I purchased, and since buying this one I've bought two others.  06 Pink Souffle  0.169 fl oz Doe-foot applicator
Review: Wears a full work/school day amount of time (~8 hours)After that there is only a stain and no creamy feel on the lipsSlight sheen/ shimmer left behind, but no glitter in the productDoes not dry lips outCream finish, not like a traditional liquid lipstickSlight vanilla scentApplies easilyOpaque in one layer, can do two Overall: Love this Lip Stain! The line has many colors to choose from, but this pink is a classic! If you apply it over a lip liner, then you can adjust the color. Since it is also a liquid, it is mixable. Wears all day long!

Colourpop Chi Chi Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencil: Review & Swatches

Image
I'm keeping the colourpop posts coming at you! Today is a lip combo and review on Chi Chi. Most brands don't offer a true true orange in their line, and if they do then it rarely is a lip liner. The lip liner is only $5, as is the lipstick. Colourpop Lippie Pencil in Chi Chi  Packaged in plastic, not wood.  Sharpen on your own after it wears down.  Colourpop Lippie Stix in Chi Chi  Matte Finish  Twist up.

Top: Lippie pencil, much more matte Bottom: Lippie Pencil, a bit more moisture  Looks like more of a true orange on the lips than in a swatch.  Just the lippie pencil, very full coverage and creamy  lip combo Review:

Lippie PencilSo impressed with this!Glides on with opacityFirst true orange lip pencil, especially at an affordable price, that I've foundWears well, but I would top it with something since it is a little drying on it's ownIf you want an orange, but not super bright or intense, try this lip liner topped with a more peach lipstickLippie StixExact same colo…
