Colourpop 'foxy' ultra matte lip review

Hi all!,

This week I am writing about my recent purchase of the Colourpop foxy collection of 5 stunning mini ultra matte liquid lipsticks. 
First up as always a bit about the brand!
ColourPop was born, raised and made with love in the City of Angels. Founded in 2014 by Seed Beauty, they pride themselves on being wallet friendly and bunny approved.
Colourpop's products are tested in the nicest way possible, leaving fur babies to be fur babies and experimenting on people instead (the people at ColourPop HQ to be exact!). 

Beeper- warm mid-tone taupe
Clueless- dusty mauve pink
Tulle- dusty mauve burgundy
Creeper- true classic blue red
More Better- deep violet wine
If you would love to check out the colourpop website click here. They have amazing swatches of this collection on different skin tones, they are all so flattering!

Application tips
Make sure your lips are bare, dry, and exfoliated for the smoothest finish. Apply a matching lip pencil for a precise and perfected application. Next, apply Ultra Matte Lip with the applicator or your favorite lip brush. It's suggested to store these babies upright and shake before application!
This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips leaving SUPER intense colour with a bold, ultra matte finish. It's very long wearing and completely kiss proof!
So these are they first lip products/any products I have purchased from Colourpop. I have very much enjoyed them so far but for sure have to be in the right mood. I find that if my lips are even a tad dry that I cannot handle having these on, but that goes for any matte lip product. 

These I purchased without any lip liners (I have since purchased matching lip liners) and I can apply them reasonably ok without lip liner's but it is difficult and is not overly neat, it would be better with lip liners!. Since purchasing a few liners I have not actually applied these again ( But I will). To be honest everyone, I have purchased so so many lip products lately that I am struggling to go through them all on rotation to try....that sounds just awful! Do you have that problem to??!?
They do dry to a complete matte and are transfer proof, they will last all day through food and drink if you want them to . I personally cannot wear matte lipsticks for a 8 hour work day because I am talking so so much in my job it just starts to get uncomfortable for me. 
I love the intense pigment of the colour of these and cannot wait to try out the rest of the range of satin lips, glossy lips, and more matte lips plus all of the liners that I have recently purchased. 
Have you got this collection or other colourpop products? Let me know down below if you have or anything else you might suggest! I would so love to hear from you and get some response of your thoughts, also like this post if you would love to see more Colourpop!

Nyx butter gloss review

Happy weekend everyone!

Today I wanted to spread my love on the nyx butter gloss! As you all know I am a giant fan of the nyx cosmetics line and these are my most beloved product so far out of there range.

These are so easy to wear, and very nourishing on the lips. If I do not take care this does end up on my teeth which is a bit of a pain but its a simple fix as just being careful with application and also taking the time to do the few tricks I know to avoid this getting on my teeth.
This will last all day if left alone, which of course is really impossible because we need to eat and drink! While eating and drinking it 100% will transfer onto your food & cups, but that is ok!

There are so far 34 shades in the range but I am sure so many more are coming out! The shades available are:
Angel food cake - Mauve
Apple Strudel - Peach
Blackberry Pie - Black
Cherry cheese cake - Orange
Cherry Pie - Red
Cotton candy - Pink with a blue undertone
Cranberry Biscotti - Deep berry
Creme Brulee - Natural

Sugar plum - Lavender
Sunday Mimosa - Light peach
Tiramisu - Brown
Vanilla cream pie - Mauve

This is a stunning pink. It is wonderful and more of a natural tone pink and would look stunning on every skin shade. This is another gloss that looks great with or without makeup and doesn't look out of place either way.

Angle food cake
This is my favorite shade that I own out of this range and my favorite general nyx lip product. It is a mauve color and I wear this one most days and am going through this one fast! This shade is very close to my own lip color so I find it looks really nice and evens out the color of my lips and actually makes them look bigger!

Apple strudel
This is a stunning peach gloss! I love the way this looks with a summer dress and simple makeup. 

Cherry pie
This is a wonderful true red. I have not been able to fit this into my normal day to day makeup as I do not feel I suit red lips! It is so so stunning!

Creme Brulee
This is a wonderful natural color on the lips and goes with majority of makeup looks. I find this is a great shade for my skin tone when I am not tanned or even if I have no makeup on. It doesn't wash me out a lot which is a big problem I normally have with light pink lip products.

Make sure to check out the website as they show all of the colors and they are so so beautiful. I cannot wait to get more of these but I have such a nyx obsession I think I may have to wait a bit longer, my makeup collection is growing a lot!

So as you would have gathered these are a gloss finish on the lips which looks great and is very flattering on most lip shapes. The colors come off as very sheer with a small amount of pigment to them. So if you are wanting a full look these wont work for you but I find these are the best product for my lips on a day to day basis because they are so easy to remove without a mirror and if you are a busy person like me that will really sell you on a product!

Well that is it for this week! I really hope you have enjoyed this weeks post and come back next week for more!
