Not too sure if you've heard about all the buzz on these babies, but they are well worth trying out. I've been wearing my 'Bold Gold' almost on a daily basis and I'm IN LOVE! The Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow
are being compared to MAC Paint Pots, and if I do say so myself, they are a pretty great 'dupe' at a fraction of the price.
They come in 10 colors ranging from bright blue, purple and orange to matte taupe and gold.
I personally don't wear alot of color, so I went with Bold Gold, Tough as Taupe and Bad to the Bronze. They're all highly pigmented, easy to use (I apply with my finger) and really do wear for a long time. I haven't tried to wear them for 24hours, but I'm sure they would if I was ever in need of looking great for 24hours...
You can wear them on their own or use them as a base/primer for your other powder shadows. I was wearing Bad to the Bronze the other day, and before I went to the gym, I tried to wipe a bit off with a tissue (like I normally do with regular powder shadows) and it didn't smudge. There wasn't a single spec of color on the tissue! These are going to be great for the Summer heat... I can just tell...
As I mentioned, they are a great dupe for MAC Paint Pots
. Infact, you can even switch the lids on them. The textures are so similar as well, if not identical. As a professional Makeup Artist, I would proudly use these in my kit. If only they had a few more neutral colors... If you haven't pick one of these up, I suggest you do. I got mine for about $6 each and I think I'll go get a few more bolder colors for my kit
. Have you tried them yet? What are your favorites?
I have found my new FAVORITE lip product. It's not a lipstick, not a lip balm but rather the perfect combination of the two.
About a month ago I had been reading all these beauty blogs about these so called 'lip butters' by Revlon. They were getting rave reviews and I knew I had to get my hands on one (or 4, to start). They hadn't come out in Canada yet, but I was watching like a hawk, EVERYWHERE! I finally found them at London Drugs a few weeks ago, and decided to pick just one up, just incase I didn't like them... that, and the fact that I had read they were selling for $7-10 bucks. London Drugs had them for closer to $13 and I'm a 'frugal' mama.
These babies are buttery, moisturizing and really feel like a lip balm on the lips. Which is perfect for my winter dry lips. The colors are sheer, but buildable and have a nice shine almost like a gloss. I'm not a lipstick fan, but prefer a little more color than a tinted lip balm. They really remind me of Dior Addict Lipstick, or even MAC Slim Shine, with a little less pigment.
Cream Brulee is a soft beige, great for everyday or paired with a dark smokey eye
Peach Parfait is the only one that has a slight glitter to it. It's the color that Emma Stone is wearing in their ad. It's not as orange as it appears on her though
Strawberry Shortcake is one of my FAVORITES! It's a soft opaque blue pink. It'll look great this summer with a tan
I hate this photo.... the photo doesn't do the color justice. Red Velvet is the must get color. If you see one at a store near you, pick it up. You won't be sorry! It's SO shiney and not matte like most red lipsticks
This is the Red Velvet. I LOVE how it makes my eyes pop!
Overall, I give the Color Burst Lip Butters from Revlon a 10 out of 10. They have a ton of colors to choose from, staying power is great and texture is AMAZING! Definitely recommend picking one or ALL of them up next time your out. I found Walmart to have the best price at $7.99. If you find them cheaper, PLEASE let me know :)
