Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lips- Swatches & First Impressions!

I received the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips on Monday! I ordered three shades: Tansy, Panda, and Frick N’ Frack. I must say that I’m not really a fan of the names. I think they’ll be a little embarrassing to say when others ask what lipstick I’m wearing.     I got this color on a whim. I had initially chosen Dopey, which was a dusty … Continue reading Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lips- Swatches & First Impressions!

MAC ‘Del Rio’ Lipstick Review

¬†MAC’s lipsticks¬†are some of my favorite.¬†I own a couple of¬†them from their matte¬†line, and I’ve tried some of their cremesheens. However,¬†my favorite formula has to be their satin finish.¬†MAC’s satin lipsticks are semi-matte, so they aren’t as drying as completely¬†matte ones, but they still offer the same amount of¬†pigmentation.
