These have been clogging up my Instagram feed lately, but I just couldn't justify the $24 pricetag at Priceline for a simple matte lip cream/lipstick. Howwwwwever, just as luck would have it, Priceline decided to have a little sale the other week and was selling them for a measly $10! Bargain! Considering I got three for only $6 more than what a single one would cost regularly! Anyway, continuing on from the Priceline sale, let's talk about the product.
Bourjois describes these babies as a lipstick with a bold matte finish and "enhanced" colour, supposed to not transfer and last for a ridiculous 24-hour time period. I picked up three colours; Peach Club, Ole Flamingo! and Nude-ist. There are eight colours in total and a lot of the colours tend to be on the "red" side.
Let's get into it!
So you have all probably already heard about the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tars and what a revolutionary/interesting product they are. Anyways, I purchased all six of mine off Lipstick Republic for about $18. So basically, if you weren't aware, lip tars are basically a liquid consistency type of lip colour product. They have amazing pigmentation and you literally need a drop to do your entire mouth, therefore the small little tube will last you an eternity! Similar to regular lipsticks, you can mix the different colour to create your own particular shade, however, the liquid consistency of the tars allow you to easily blend and mix.
I've decided to do a little two part series about my favourite brushes or the ones I use most commonly! First up - face brushes. Anything to do with my base, cheeks etc.
Just a heads up - I purchased all my Real Technique brushes, ELF products and Eco Tools brushes from iHerb! It's a fantastic site and I recommend it because of their variety and also their cheap shipping! I have made like 4 orders through them and will continue to go back! I have a code to get up to $10 off for your first order: VOW650
Firstly, I want to say sorry! The last couple weeks have been hard on me, with final uni assignments due and I'm working more than usual. My whole "beauty" life has been on the sideline unfortunately. If I could do makeup all day, err'day I would, but alas, life is more complicated than that.
Anywhooos, this is my monthly favourites. Better late than never, guys!
