Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick Review

The world has been blessed with another Fenty Beauty product and this time it’s no other than Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick by Rihanna. These lipsticks are said to long-wearing, soft matte finished, and intense color shade that WILL FLATTER ALL SKIN TONES. Finding a shade of lipstick that looks good on you can be tough because it might look good on the tube but not turn out the way you wanted it.

My Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick purchase.

Mattemoiselle-Plush-Matte-Lipstick

Before I start, I will like to state that I am not a big lipstick person but I decided to give it a try because the other Fenty products stole my heart. I purchased the color PMS. The color PMS is a bold darker brownish/purplish lip color. I went big and bold. Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick do come in 14 shades that match the rainbow from reds to purples, so there is a shade for anyone.

Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick hits and misses.

Hits

  1. Lightweight.
  2. Looks great on any skin tone.
  3. Longwear.
  4. Vibrant colors.
  5. Amazing price tag.

Misses.

  1. none.

My thoughts on Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick.

What can I say Rihanna has done it again! This lipstick made me fall in love.
What I loved about the product was that it is lightweight, not just the packaging but the product itself. The formula did not make your lips feel sticky with the product. Not to mention you get full coverage with only one application.
I took the all-day wear from 9 to 5 pm to see if it would last and it did plus the afternoon. The color stayed vibrant and bold. My favorite thing about this lipstick is that fact that it was made for any woman’s skin tone. I can understand the struggle to find a tone that matches my skin tone. Let’s not forget to the fantastic, reasonable price tag.
Let me know if you guys decided to try Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick and let me know your thoughts.

Fenty Beauty: Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation | Review

The long wait is finally over I caved in a bought Fenty Beauty Foundation. I purchased Fenty Beauty: Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in color 230.

Fenty Beauty: Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

My Fenty journey started with I bought Fenty Highlighter, and I instantly fell in love. I decided to wait to purchase the foundation because honestly, I am not a foundation kind of girl. I caved, and I had to see what the all the rave was.

Pros:

  1. It’s very silky and velvety just like the bottle says.
  2. No caking!
  3. All day last.

Cons:

  1. It oxides.

My overall thoughts on Fenty Beauty: Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation.

Fenty is another gift that Rihanna has blessed with us. You know it’s good because I am not a foundation type of gal and this has changed my whole perspective. I now make sure I have Fenty on before I leave my house.

When you apply the foundation, you can feel the softness of your skin. It goes on smoothly. The foundation is not so thick, so if you are looking for fuller coverage, you might have apply 2 or 3 coats.

However, even if you apply two or three coats it never gets cakey. It leaves your skin looking poreless and fresh. Plus it looks great all day even through a nine to five shift.

My only downfall was that it oxides. Meaning that it dries darker than what it previously. I initially had gotten a sample for 290, but I had to go back and try a lighter sample which leads me to 230. My recommendation is to make sure it dries a good five to ten minutes.

Besides that this has to be my new favorite product of 2017.

Believe it or not, this is a lipstick, at first, I thought it was a mascara. Once you open, it shows this cream lipstick.

KNC Beauty Collagen Lip Masks.

The number one lip kit you need. At first, I was like why would you need a lip mask but let me tell you it keeps your lips hydrated especially in this dry weather. For me, I get dry lips when the weather turns cold and dry. This has helped keep them recover.

My overall opinion on Boxycharm November 2017 box.

The Boxycharm November box stayed true to their theme in keeping you cozy, practical and ready for the colder weather. Not only are these items great for the colder weather but also easy to transition to the warm weather. My favorite products have to be setting spray, eyeshadow palette, and the eye brushes.

Dirty Little Secrets Eyeshadow Crayon | Review

Dirty Little Secrets eyeshadow crayon easily became one my favorite product for the month of October ever since receiving it from Boxycharm. The Dirty Little Secret eyeshadow crayon is a creamy eyeshadow that is easy to use and colorful. This product retails for $14.

Dirty Little Secrets is an indie cosmetic brand that is proving high quality makeup at affordable prices, which we and our banks can appreciate . They are very committed to providing the best for their customers.

  3. CRUELTY FREE
  4. Donates to causes like LGTB advocacy, anti-bullying and natural disasters.

Cons.

  1. It does not last all day and would have to reapply in the middle of the day.

My final thoughts about the Dirty Little Secret Eyeshadow Crayon.

I loved how easy it was to apply the Dirty Little Secret Eyeshadow Crayon. It’s one of those products you can just swipe on when you are in a hurry in the morning and leaving you looking like you spent hours on your makeup.

Another of my favorite features is that this eyeshadow crayon blends amazingly with other eyeshadows. If you are looking for an excellent base to blend other eyeshadows and had depth and color, this is it! You can blend it with neutral browns, red and even pinks.

PLUS this product is CRUELTY-FREE! and donates to important issues.

The only con about this product is that it did not last all day test. At the end of day, it started to just look as pigments as it did at the end of the day. You would have to retouch between the day.

Overall I would give the Dirty Little Secret Eyeshadow Crayon 3.5 out five stars. This product would make great stocking stuffers for the holidays or even little birthday gifts for your friends.

 

 

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter | Review

The central star of the October Boxycharm box was the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter is supposed to leave your skin with glowing and illuminated. This product retails for $41, but I received it in the October Boxycharm Box so with all the other products it was only $21.

 Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in color Prosecco Pop.

I have always used a pressed powder highlighter, so this was a learning experience for me. You either apply it as a makeup base or after foundation to the areas you want to highlight. Another tip is if you are looking for a more dewy face look just mix a pump with your foundation.

Pros.

  1. It leaves your skin with a NATURAL GLOW.
  2. It lasts all day!

Cons.

  1. The dispenser pumps too much product then what is needed.

My final thoughts about Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in color Prosecco Pop.

Overall I loved Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter very natural glow it leaves. The pigmentation on this highlighter is worth every penny. I always look for very natural glowing highlighters that look like we were sunkissed by the sun not showered in glitter. (nothing wrong with that though)

The problem I have is that my skin is a combination of oily and dry so finding something to suit both is tough. This highlighter works wonders! I wore this highlighter a full day through an 8-hour shift. I made it through the day without at the end of the day without it looking like a big sweaty mess. (It has happened with other highlighters.)

The only thing I would change is the dispenser. It pumps way too much for what you need. It leaves you wasting a lot of product. This product is very pigmented, so there is no need for much.

After receiving this product from BoxyCharm, I think I would consider trying the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter, but in color, Champagne pop! P.S. this would be the great gift for any occasion!
