Monday, October 08, 2012

Hey Everyone!

I got a review, swatches AND real life photos for you on tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-hour Lipstick

Let me proceed to give you what you need!!

 I was sent five of the eight the Glamazon Pure Performance 12 hour lipsticks( from left to right):

 Swatched on my hand (left to right):
 Inspired (a dusty rose)
 Bold( a coral)
 Whimsy ( a bright pink)
 Wild( a cool red)
Fierce ( a bright red)
 Now for some real life photos of the lipsticks. I wore them for a week or so with different looks, lipliners and glosses....

 Wearing Inspired..again.

Wearing Bold...

-The colors are gorgeous, highly pigmented, true to the swatch. No holds barred. You are getting full on color with the first swipe!
-The packaging is cute!
-Even though they are "long wearing" they are not drying at all.
-They have a stain( especially the darker ones) but it comes off easy.
-works well with glosses and lip liners and never loses its color of consistency when topped with them
-the longevity is great. I don't know if its 12 hrs, I didn't try and see, lol, but its definitely in the 5-6 hour range with losing a bit of color when eating.

-The price point is $26. $26 is too much, maybe $13, which is half the cost. I would even spend $15, but not a dime over $20. Nope.
-One of the sticks broke in the tube, which leads me to think that the packaging is cute but not effective. The tube itself could be a little shorter to prevent the lippie from breaking. But I see the point of the packaging, it really stands out in my lipstick collection.


I would suggest grabbing at least Inspired and Fierce. Inspired is a wearable color for a lot of skin tones and Fierce is the perfect red. Wild is gorgeous for cool skin tone gals looking for your red. Bold and Whimsy are fun and definitely for collectors of bold pink must haves!

What do you think? Thinking about grabbing couple of Pure Performance lippies? Let me know!!


Disclosure: These products were sent to me for review. All reviews are my own opinion.

~ Beauty Haul~ Rite-Aid, Ulta, Walgreens, Wal-Mart

Hey Everyone!

I stopped by a couple of stores this weekend and actually complied a little haul! 

N.Y.C. Duo in Devilish
N.Y.C. Limited Edition Shimmer Powder City Duet

Rite Aid: I think these two pieces are from a N.Y.C. Halloween collection display. I love a bronzer/highlight duo and I was intrigued by that matte red shadow in that duo.

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Polar Bear

 Walgreens-I went by Walgreens and spotted the clearanced Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Polish. They were  $1.89 in my neck of the woods. These are like $8, $9 polishes for $1.89 and I only found one I wanted. Can you believe that?!? LOL!

  Wal-Mart- Spotted and snatched up two of the new Hard Candy Top Ten Eye Shadow Collection. I can't believe they actually in my Wal-Mart!! They are only $6, that's a killer price. I only got two, Naturally Gorgeous and Green With Envy.

I also got CoverGirl Queen Collection Lipstick in Mocha Loca after YT's crystalis007 raved about it being the perfect dark brown girl nude. It is indeed gorgeous!

Ulta- I had a $5 off $10 coupon for Ulta. I picked up NYX Bohemian Chic Nude Matte Collection. I've been playing with it today and ruling is out on it but I will say, it suits cool tone skin better.
