Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss

These are the cutest! Have you seen the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss Test Tubes? They are mini lip stains that have serious staying power and bold, bright shades! The OCC Stained Glosses are high-pigment stains that are a little wet and sticky to apply but once they dry they’re like paint. They stick to lips and deliver opaque colour and a nice gloss.

Revlon Jet Set Into Fall: Get The London Look

Revlon Jet Set For Fall: The London Look

All of the products needed for the Revlon Jet Set For Fall: The London Look

Revlon has a bunch of great (and affordable) makeup products but sometimes it can be tricky to pull it all together into a look. Luckily for us the awesome Revlon team has come up with some city-inspired looks that can give you the hottest trends for Fall in just a few simple steps. The looks are themed after famous travel destinations like London, Paris, and New York. I have the London look to share with you today, and it’s definitely something I can rock anywhere I am this season!

Be a London Lady

To get the London Lady look it’s an intense smokey eye paired with a natural lip. This is a trend that never goes out of style so you can rock this long after Fall. The products featured in this look are the following, and I have reviewed each one individually:

Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks in Onyx and Gunmetal: These shadows come in little blocks that can be linked together to create your own custom palette. The shimmer in both Onyx and Gunmetal is to die for, and although they don’t last for hours the colours are really great. I would recommend a primer underneath to make these shadows stick around, but these shades are probably two of the best ones in the ShadowLinks lineup.

Revlon ColorStay Skinny Liquid Liner: For a super thin eyeliner this is the one to try. It has a tapered tip that pffers precision and fine lines, so your smokey eye will be perfectly defined.

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara: I just reviewed this one last week and am still in love with how quick and easy it is to apply. This makes a great everyday mascara but can be amped up with the rest of the smoky eye look to create more dramatic and dark lashes. You can read my full review on the mascara here.

Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in London Posh: I’ve tried these in a few different shades, which you can check out here. London Posh is a gorgeous peach shade that has a subtle gold shimmer to it. It feels smooth and soft on the lips and offers a hydrating stain with lots of shine.

To add to your look you can try the Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Polish in High Stakes, a bright teal shade, or All Or Nothing, a pretty soft pink.

The recommended London look is a bold smoky eye and neutral lip, which is a classic combination no matter where you are. Day or night, Fall or Summer, London or Paris – this look is one that I will be rocking all the time thanks to Revlon!

Berry Lips: Beautiful Lip Products That Are Perfect For Fall

The weather is getting crisp and cool, and that means it’s time for sweater weather and dark lipstick! It’s sad to say summer is officially over but I’m pretty excited about cozy clothes and boots so it’s not that bad. Aside from Fall fashions I also am excited about the other things Fall brings – lots of tea, movie nights with my man, and of course Fall beauty trends!

One of the biggest changes for Fall beauty is the darker lipsticks that come out. Beautiful berry shades start popping up when the weather gets cold, and to get you ready for this pretty Fall trend I have rounded up a bunch of beautiful berry shades you should check out!

Beautiful Berry Lip Products from L-R: Sephora Collection, L'Oreal Paris, Maybelline New York, CoverGirl, and Rimmel London

Keep in mind that berry shades can range in tone from being more purple-based or red, so check out which ones you like best for your skin tone. Both are equally as pretty but some berry hues can end up looking more like grape juice instead of wine.

Sephora Collection Nano Lip Pencil in 09 Pleasant Plum: This nano lip liner is perfect to outline one of the pretty berry lipsticks below, or to use as a full coverage product. Using a lip liner all over your lips will make it last longer than regular lipstick. Check out this super-pigmented lip liner here.

L’Oreal Paris Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in 186 Berry Persistent: This lipstick stain is glossy and wet looking, but lasts for hours. It’s hydrating and packed with pigment so you get the best of both worlds – a lasting stain and a lightweight gloss. Check it out here to learn more.

Maybelline New York ColorSensational Lip Color in 410 Blissful Berry: This is a traditional lipstick that is super opaque and smooth. It applies like a dream and delivers a bold punch of colour in one simple swipe. Check out this creamy lipstick here.

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in 255 Jam Twist: This gloss and balm hybrid is moisturizing. light, and extremely smooth. It’s more sheer than a lipstick but still offers the right shade of berry in a less opaque product. Check out my review of these balms here.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss in 107: This matte lipstick lasts for hours and looks amazing. It has a smooth formula and intense colour that looks great with the matte finish. The Kate Moss lipsticks are my go-to lip products and this one is no exception. Check out my full post on these lipsticks here.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 09: This is like the non-matte twin sister of the Kate Moss Matte lipstick. This is another beautiful berry shade that has the same smooth formula and long-lasting pigment. Another perfect lip product from the Rimmel London lineup. Check it out here.

There you have it, 6 stunning lip products that will last you all season. Get a gorgeous berry hue with any of these products alone, or combine them to create your own look.

Pro Tip: If you’re worried about looking too much like Lorde you can lighten up any lipstick by dabbing it on with your fingers instead of applying it directly.

Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stains

I haven’t been this excited with a lip product for quite a while, so these are really something if they’ve managed to wow me. The Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stains are highly pigmented, long lasting lip stains that don’t dry out. They come in a variety of colours and are named after some great travel locations like Barcelona and Rio.

They have a cute little wand applicator and the packing is very chic. The rectangular tube is really pretty to look at and the clear sides show the lip colour very clearly.

Get a Gorgeous Rosy Glow With The Benefit Cosmetics Best-Seller Benetint

Benetint is the best-selling rose-tinted lip and cheek stain from Benefit Cosmetics. This stain is a staple beauty product that every woman should try at least once in her life. It’s a go-to tint for rosy cheeks and red lips, which can be layered to get softer or deeper shades.

Benetint Lip and Cheek Stain

A light swipe of Benetint over bare lips can add a subtle red hint of colour, but a few more layers can provide a pretty red stain that lasts for hours. On cheeks it can be blended to give a light rosy glow, leaving cheeks looking naturally flushed.
If you haven’t tried it yet you are definitely missing out. I carry the travel sized bottle with me at all times for an easy flush of colour whenever I’m in need. Benetint sells for $36 at sephora.ca.
