Did you hear the good news? Dose of Colors is NOW available online at ULTA! Among their popular matte liquid lipsticks, other items available from the line include their lipsticks, lip glosses, and a couple of their eyeshadow palettes, in Baked Browns and Marvelous Mauve. I was first introduced to their line by way of Instagram. I am a huge fan of their matte liquid lipstick formula. I find them to be beautifully pigmented, long lasting and the color range is fantastic.  Today I have swatches to share with you of some of my favorites!

It was bound to happen. Kylie Cosmetics finally released a liquid lipstick collaboration with no other than Kim Kardashian. I have not purchased anything from Kylie Cosmetics for a while. Frankly, attempting to purchase items that almost always disappeared from my cart during checkout was not worth the headache. It was a completely different story, however, when images of this collaboration surfaced. Say what you will about Kim Kardashian, you cannot deny that her makeup is virtually flawless. I have always admired how beautifully she could pull off any look, whether it be soft and natural or full out glam. I worked at Sephora for nearly 5 years and one thing that customers always requested was a lipstick that looked like Kim Kardashian’s. I remember reading once that her go to lipgloss was NARS’ Turkish Delight and that was my go to recommendation for many years. Alas, she has finally released a collection of four gorgeous shades of nudes for the neutral lip lover. Read below for more images, swatches and my first impressions.

Smashbox Cosmetics recently launched their Be Legendary Liquid Lip Pigments*, now available   in two different categories,  9 of which are Liquid Metals, with a foiled finish, and 8 of which are Liquid Pigments with a Vinyl Finish. They are described as liquid lipsticks with a high-impact shine and rich saturated color along with a lightweight texture. The shades were made in collaboration with Smashbox Cosmetics’ Lip Editor-in-Chief Vlada Haggerty. She is an amazing lip artist and you can find her work on her instagram page here. I initially purchased three of the shades in Bad B, Rose B4 Bros and Mauve squad when lo and behold, a jaw dropping PR package of the entire collection arrived. Today I’m excited to share swatches of the entire range as well as my review.
