Ulta Matte Lip Cream Review

Alright Lovelies... here we go. It's been a while since I really had anything to do with makeup. I mean, in the whole, blogger/reviewer/artist kind of way. Something finally snapped and I realized how much I enjoyed this and that I needed to get back to it.

I purchased these babies during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty this spring. Let me tell you, money well spent in my opinion. I purchased them for 2 for $8, currently they retail for $9 each. They have a pretty good variety of colors, although most of them are on the safer side. I do think that these are a wonderful choice for someone that wants to try a matte lip but not special order, or pay $20 for a single color. They take a good 10-15 minutes to dry to a matte finish. They go on deliciously creamy and pigmented for the most part. The only one I really have an issue with is Artistic. For me, it was very patchy and streaky, not my favorite look.

Makeup Revolution Review

Alright kids, I went to Ulta a little while back and picked up some pretty things. There was a new endcap full of Makeup Revolution products, and I almost went totally crazy. I did purchase one pallet and two lippies. I will be honest, they only had a few things out, it was mostly empty. I will most definitely be going back to purchase more.

I got one pallet in Girls on Film, and I got two Velvet Lip Lacquers in Rebel and Vamp. The eyeshadows are awesome. There are 18 shadows in this pallet, 6 matte and 12 shimmers. The brightest color is the purple. All of the others are quite neutral, but very pretty. I love the mauvey matte shade. it is the bees knees.
