Mac Kinky Boots - Review

Wow I'm glad I didn't skip out on this red lippie set.
I'm a sucker for reds in general.
Of course MAC does release way too many reds in all their collections.
Just this year alone, there have been so many reds.
It's been an endless parade.
And they all start to look the same obviously.
But this edition does stand out.
And it's really the lipglass that makes it so.
The matte red is a classic red.
It's matte and goes on smoothly.
I think it would work great for anyone.

But when you add the lipglass, well it transforms.
Ideally you can just get the lipglass and add it on top of any lippie.
It is the most glitteriest lipglass I've seen and have from MAC.

I took several shots in different lighting just to try and capture the glitter.
It's not uncomfortable to wear either.
I applied with a brush and I think that is the best way to apply it.

My lips look just like the sequined boots in the show art.
And a close second to the dress that Jessica Rabbit wears.
I can deal with that.
:)

Get your holiday lips on.
Get kinky!

Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Set - Review

Urban Decay Full Frontal Set
 Overpriced tinyness. 
These are tiny.
I have tiny lippies from UD, they're cute but tiny.
The UD OZone lipliner however is great so it works out somehow 
but could have been less than $39.
(Of course if you got this during the Sephora VIB 20% sale then that's great.)

My favorite is Crush
I can't wait for UD to release this in full-size. It's such an amazing hot pink with a gold duo chrome sheen on the tube but it doesn't show up on the lips. 
The lipliner works well with all these lippies.
My second fav: F-Bomb. Essentially the Perfect. Red. Lip.

I swatched 3 of them. Gash: I swatched a while back when they released the full tube online. Illicit was so sheer I couldn't really manage to get a nice shot and Liar is your basic nude lip. Perhaps eventually I'll post the remaining three.

Crush Lips - the hottest pink ever Rating: 5/5

Ladyflower Lips - pretty mauve pink Rating: 5/5

F-Bomb Lips - the perfect red lip Rating: 5/5

BONUS
Swatches previously posted on IG, FB, and Twitter.
Universally flattering pink nude and beige nude lippies from UD.

Naked Lips and Naked2 Lips - universally flattering nudes

What is your favorite UD lippie from this set?

Stay sweet lovelies!
