Lipstick, My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things – Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

Urban-Decay-Revolution-Lipstick-1All my readers at Purrfectly Beautiful know that this kitty loves lipstick. And my all-time favorite lipstick these days (it could change at any minute) is Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipsticks.  These lipsticks are EVERYTHING! The colors are totally fab! Bright, bold, look at me colors, that make you strut your stuff when wearing them, I’m not kidding!  My two favorite colors are Anarchy and Obsessed.

The wear time on this lipstick is insane! It lasts 8+ hours. I am a huge water drinker and even through multiple water bottles my lipstick lasts 8 hours. I apply first thing in the AM and that’s it-it lasts all day. There is nothing I love more than long-wearing lipstick.

Another thing I LOVE about this lipstick it is made without parabens, sulfates and phtalates! Those are horrible icky things that I don’t like in my make-up.

There is a color for everyone in the Revolution Lipstick line. Urban Decay will not disappoint you! Go out and get this lipstick and send me your lip pics!

I give this lipstick 4 paws up!

Beautycounter Lip Sheers

Lip Sheer Set ShadesI’m a lipstick girl; I love experimenting with bright, bold colors and love to try new lip products. I prefer long-wear lipsticks and colors that stay on my lips and don’t transfer everywhere else.  I was excited to try out Beautycounter’s new lip sheers, but at the same time a little hesitant.  I mean, how good could a lipstick that is natural and gluten-free be?

Lets first start with the gorgeous packaging! These gold tubes are so luxe and rival YSL lipstick tubes.  The colors are really great seasonal colors, ranging from a very soft pink to a deep burgundy.  A tube of gloss also comes with the set. I’m definitely not into lip gloss, but I had to try it just to compare with other glosses I have used in the past.

I’ve been using the lip sheers for a few weeks, and to my surprise I really like them. The lip sheers smell delicious! A yummy vanilla fragrance erupts from the tube the minute you open it. The applicator is designed in an easy-to-use tube that you can turn up and down. The lip sheers go on easy like a chapstick. The colors don’t go on as bold as they look—so don’t be afraid to try the darker colors. The gloss is nice and works just like other glosses.  It gives a beautiful shine to the lip sheers.

The longevity of the color is average. I found myself re-applying several times a day, but I also drink lots of water so my lips are constantly in contact with things.  I definitely didn’t mind re-applying because the Beautycounter product smells so good and kept my lips nice and soft.

If you are really into vegan, natural products, you will definitely love Beautycounter’s Lip Sheers.  Because they lack all the bad chemicals, you won’t get the long-wear of non-natural lipsticks, but the colors are beautiful and the lip sheers definitely leave your lips nice and soft. I hope Beautycounter develops more lip products in different colors and of course, I can’t wait to try out their makeup when it comes out!

I am giving Beautycounter Lip Sheers 2 Paws Up for passing my standards, and another 2 Paws Up for being a “clean” product.
