L'Oreal Silverstone Lipstick - Review

This was a surprise color.
I had coupons and there was a sale so there's the story on that.
I got lured into the L'Oreal section and found this lovely frost lippie.

It is a pretty bronze-silvery mauve-pinkish color.
It reminded me of the forthcoming Mac Rihanna Viva Glam 2 lipstick. 
Although hers is darker than this;
In many swatches, it looked very similar.
I would even venture to say that L'Oreal Bronzine is also a close color.
Basically it's a frost lippie that can be found in some drugstore lines.

I usually don't look for dupes for Viva Glam lippies because
it's really for a good cause. And I am looking forward to getting both the lipstick and lip glass.
Although it may not be my everyday go-to color! LOL
This one though is way more flattering.
I was pleasantly surprised.
And L'Oreal Sandstone used to be my fav way back.

The lipped went on smoothly. I used Mac Stone to line.
It's just gorgeous.
I also tried it on my daughter. For her lips, since her skin tone is darker, I used Mac Chestnut.
The results are equally as gorgeous!

Rating: 5/5

Kat von D L.U.V. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Review

This is an amazing purple liquid lipstick.
Because it is a liquid-to-matte formula, the pigment is intense.
This really pops.
There is a Kat von D Studded Kiss version but it is not as intense.

I actually lined using an orange lipliner thinking I was going to do an orange lippie.
However the liquid lipstick covered that up easily.
Totally unaffected really by the lipliner.
You could feasibly add a lipliner on top when it is dry.
Shade it in using a darker color if you prefer that look or need dimension.

Here are the results!

Definitely "LUV" this lippie!

Duchess's Lipmix Love Series

I love mixing stuff on my lips.
More than just your lipliner and a lipstick sometimes.
I like to blend and layer stuff.

(These lip mixes were posted on my Instagram, FB and Twitter.)

The products just combine really well.
I call them "Duchess's Lipmix Love".

Here is the 1st one:
PINK NUDE
  1. I lined with Mac Cream O'Spice lipliner.
  2. Applied Buxom's True Nude Lip Foundation in Buff over the lips blending into the lipliner.
  3. Applying Mac Fearless Patentpolish lip pencil on top which "creamifies" it and transforms the matte into a lovely creamy "amplified" type finish. 

Which for me wears a long time. I sometimes need my lipsticks to have long wear.

PEACH NUDE
  1. I lined with Mac Beurre lipiner.
  2. Applied Buxom's True Nude Lip Foundation in Nude over the lips blending into the lipliner.
  3. Applying Mac Revved Up Patentpolish lip pencil on top which "creamifies" it and transforms the matte into a lovely creamy "amplified" type finish.

Anyhoo, I love these mixes and I hope you do too.
