Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Lolita. Old Formula vs. New


Here's a comparison Video and picture/swatches of the Lolita Liquid Lipstick 
by Kat Von D. 

I own both the original and the new formula. 
First off, let's talk about the packaging. 
I love the NEW packaging, it's not messy as the old packaging.
Now let's talk about the color.
The color significantly changed from the original formula.
Not sure how that came about, but a lot of ladies on
sephora have been complaining because of the color.
I recently got the new batch of the lolita lipstick a couple of weeks ago
when it came back in stock.
Before the it came back in stock, I swatched a tester at sephora and that color
seemed to be a lot darker and brown than this formula that i just received.
I guess they're having issues with the formulation which probably messes up the 
color? Not entirely sure, but it seems that each new batch seems to 
be a tad bit different.

The original formula is a lot true to the name of the color, a Dusty Rose.
Whereas the newer batch seems to have more of a mauve brown tone.
Which I do like. 

What I also noticed was that the older formulation is more opaque
than the newer one. The newer one is a lot more sheer,
and need more than one application for an opaque color.

Spotlight/Halo/Oreo Eyeshadow look

On March 14th, We gave my Grandma from my father's side
a 90th birthday a China Palace.
Also on that day were my parent's 35th anniversary!

For her 90th birthday my cousin and I got our hair and make up done by
one of my cousin's friend her IG is @maryf_baby
She's Awesome! She took her time and it was a decent price.

She did this really cool smokey Oreo eye look is what she called it.
For tutorial purposes on youtube some of them call it the Halo/Spotlight Look.
It was nice to finally be relaxing while someone else does my hair and makeup
which is why I had it done.  
















Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector + Mineral Blush Swatches


I absolutely love the formulation of these Becca Products!
They're finely milled and they go on so silky smooth.
The blushes are very pigmented so a little goes a very long way!
I bought mines at the Sephora Website,
you can also find these products at Ulta
and the Becca Website. 

Champagne gold is limited edition, not sure if they're still selling it.
I also have the shimmering skin perfector in Moonstone,
but i forgot to take a photo of it! :( 


Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector: Rose Gold, Champagne Gold, Opal $38
Mineral Blush: Songbird and Flower Child $32

Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Pure Hollywood + MAC Stone Lip Liner


NEW Sephora Cream Lip Stain Colors + Mini Sephora Haul (MUFE Fifty Shades of Grey)







I made a video along with some lipswatches of the new colors 
from Sephora's Cream lip stain line. 
There are a total of 11 new colors and looking back at 
the Sephora website just now, there are only 3 of the old shades left.

The older shades that are left:
01 always red
03 Strawberry Kissed
05 Infinite Rose

They discontinued the other colors that I mentioned in my video,
a few of them to name are my favorites
02 Classic beige
04 Endless purple
07 Dark berry

I wished they would have kept the older shades as well!!
02 and 04 were one of my favorites!!


These cream lip stains are $13 and you can find them at sephora

Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks + 2 Lime Crime Velvetines



I just received my Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks in the mail today!
Right when they arrived, I grabbed my Camera and wanted to record a video
since I was so excited to try them and share it with you all.
I'm a big fan of liquid lipsticks, although they can be drying, I love the finish,
and formulation. They feel very lightweight on the lips and MATTE is my favorite
lipstick finish!

The shipment came quick, I ordered three lipsticks in the color Vamp, Heathers and Vintage
the day that day launched, JANUARY 7. Luckily, they were all in stock.
I originally wanted to order Pure Hollywood as well but thought I
had a similar lip color to that and didn't need it. The next day I was itching for it
but it was sold out! The following day or two days later, the 3 colors that were out of stock
were back in stock! They restocked the products very quickly and I received
my package pretty fast. Within 3 days! I went ahead and ordered Pure Hollywood yesterday,
and I am now waiting for it in the mail so I can have a lip swatch for that color too.

You can only find these colors on the Macy's Website and the Anastasia Website.
I don't think it's being released anywhere else. I got mines from the Anastasia Website,
When I  went to the Macys website, all the colors were already sold out.
However, I just checked and all the colors are restocked again.
 I believe this will be a permanent product in their makeup line.

Here's a bit of info straight from the Anastasia Website about these liquid lipsticks

RETAIL PRICE: $20
Full coverage, intense pigment, and a matte finish in an easy-to-apply liquid formula. One sweep delivers vibrant long-wearing color that sets all day. Formula is ultra-pigmented. Swirl wand around tube to evenly mix color before application. Available in 20 shades.

They feel like the other liquid lipsticks that I have.
The smell reminds me of a mascara scent. 
The other that I have which is from Sephora, Kat Von D, Stila and Lime Crime,
All have a vanilla sweet scent. 
These colors are all very opaque and dry a Matte Finish! 

I also purchased two other Lip Velvetines from Lime Crime 
in the color Pansy and Salem.

I also have other liquid lipsticks that may be similar to vintage
which is Dose Of Colors in Berry Me and A sephora Liquid lipstick

the other colors are just for packaging comparison
