Another day, another lipstick. And I’m not even close to being done yet. Today we’re sticking to drugstore (and affordable) lippies with the new NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks. Available in 24 shades and ringing it at $10 CAD each, these are a fantastic option for adding some new colours to your repertoire for the fall.

I have all but 2 of the shades and couldn’t wait to dive in and swatch them for you so you can find your next pick!

These lipsticks are throwing it back to the OG lipsticks, going vintage and focusing on a creamy feel and bold colour payoff. These lipsticks dry to a velvety, almost matte finish that feels surprisingly light on the lips. I clock wear time at about 4-5 hours before you will need to reapply, and you will experience some transfer with these.

 

If you’re looking for colour, the NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks are definitely what you’re going to want to get your hands on this season. The payoff is incredible, with extremely bold, opaque colour. Be careful with application, because with such strong colour you’re going to want to be really precise. I would suggest starting with a liner for perfect full coverage. Anyways, the pigmentation on these is pretty incredible, and with 24 different shades to choose from I have no doubt you’ll be able to find something to suit most of your needs. There are quite a few nude and deep shades, as well as a few classic reds and pinks to round the selection off. Also, fair warning, some of the deeper shades – heck, most of the shades – do have a bit of a stain to them.

And now… On to the swatches, because I know that’s what you’re really here for.

I told you my lipstick obsession has been (nearly) satiated recently with all of the amazing new products that have been finding their way to my desk. One of the latest? The new L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte lipsticks, the newest addition to the Colour Riche fam. These richly pigmented lipsticks are currently available in 12 shades, which I have swatches of!

I love the feel of these lipsticks. They’re creamy and soft, giving the lips a lot of moisture while you wear. I’ve been a really big fan of mattes lately, and I love the shade range that they have available in them – you have a few nudes, some pretty pinks, gorgeous reds and a couple of magenta/fuchsia shades to finish it off. I find that these set to a more satin finish and have a bit more sheen than most mattes that I’ve been used to, however I found that I can easily give them a more matte look by finishing them off with a quick pat with a tissue; it softens the sheen and mattifies really quickly.

I found that I get about 3-4 hours of wear time before I have to reapply, with some transfer when drinking and eating, so they don’t completely set. Reapplication is nice and smooth however, and you just need a bit to touch up without having to worry about drying or crumbling. These do have the same scent that you’ll find in other L’Oreal lipsticks, which I know some people aren’t the biggest fan of. I really kind of like the scent though – it reminds me of trying out my mom’s lipsticks when I was younger!

To make things even better, they’ve come out with 8 matte lipliners that go along with these shades.

Oh Bite Beauty, you never cease to amaze me. And in a summer where lipstick has ruled, I’m really happy that you’ve thrown your ring into the liquid lipstick ring because your version is, well, delicious. I’ve been playing with the new Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick for a little while now and there’s a reason why these have become so popular so quickly. Shall we?

“Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick is proof that a high pigment luxurious and nourishing formula is possible with natural ingredients.” – Susanne Langmuir, Founder & Creator of Bite Beauty

Bite Beauty Liquified Lipstick L-R: Braised, Candied, Caramelized, Chutney, Demi-Glace, Eclair, Flambé, Infuse, Marsala, Purée, Supreme, Whip

Available in 12 shades, ranging from nudes to deep maroon with everything in between, the new liquified lipsticks bring their popular Amuse Bouche lipsticks into liquid form (with new shades). They were designed to be nourishing on the lips, using natural ingredients like coconut oil, monoi butter and citrus flavour, to ensure that the formula glides on the lips smoothly leaving a creamy feel that hydrates during wear. They feel luxurious on the lip, with a really soft touch that doesn’t ever feel heavy or sticky.

The shades are gorgeous and highly pigmented, especially the deeper shades; I love the colour and how rich they are once applied. I do notice that the lighter shades apply a little streaky and need to be blended a little for a smooth finish, but I’ve had no issues with the darker shades. For me, standouts are Chutney (my absolute favourite), Supreme and Marsala.

Bite Beauty Liquified Lipstick L-R: Braised, Candied, Caramelized, Chutney, Demi-Glace, Eclair, Flambé, Infuse, Marsala, Purée, Supreme, Whip

They apply really creamy and dry to what they call a demi-glaze finish, which means they feel satiny and have a nice hit of shine to them without being overly glossy. I do find that these transfer (especially to my teeth…), with reapplication needed every 3-4 hours to keep the colour up. For longer lasting colour, start with The Lip Pencil in a matching shade.

And now… I made my first YouTube video! Check out more swatches and a continuation of my review here:

For me, this summer is quickly becoming the season of the killer lip. Between these and a few other really fantastic launches (which you’ll be seeing in the coming weeks), I’ve been having a hell of a good time playing with new formulas & shades. Today though, we’ll be talking about one of my new faves – Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick ($11.99 CAD).

Maybelline is definitely upping their game by joining in on the liquid lipstick trend, and I’m so happy they did. I’m a big fan of this type of lipstick and am really happy to see a great quality drugstore version, which makes picking up a few different shades a lot more accessible than some of the other versions I love.

I want to kick this review off by talking about the staying power of the Superstay Matte Inks. This was one thing that the brand really stressed when they launched the product, noting that once it’s on it stays on – my kinda lipstick. I tend to throw it on before I head out the door for the day and I’m usually so busy on the go that I don’t pay attention to reapplication, so this fits for me. I’ll find that sometimes I even have to wash it off at the end of the day because my lips are still a little stained. I’ve been wearing these since the launch a few weeks ago (where you might have seen we tested them out during a Soulcycle class that nearly killed me) and I’m honestly really impressed with the wear time once they set.

They’ve lasted through work days, wine tastings, lunches, etc. and usually without the need for a touch up. One thing I will stress though is that given the long lasting nature you will probably want to be careful with application; as I mentioned, once they’re on, they’re on so fixing up mistakes can be a little tricky. The pointed tip of the applicator definitely makes precision a bit easier though. I suggest starting off by lining the lips using this before filling in with the flat side to avoid making mistakes and having to attempt cleanup.

Moving on to the formula, this is where I hit a bit of a snag that prevents me from giving these 5 full golden stars. These definitely feel a little different from other liquid lipsticks you’ve probably tried, and upon application, they feel a bit sticky. I’m not a big fan of a tacky feel, so if you can get past the initial feel and give them time to set (which doesn’t take long) I suggest giving these a try. The formula is nicely creamy, which means that even though the finish is matte the lips are left feeling soft. Try not to apply too much to avoid any “crumbling” and give it a couple of minutes to set once you’ve applied.

Currently, Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink is available in 10 shades, swatches of which can be seen above (a few minutes after application once set): Loyalist, Dreamer, Lover, Pioneer, Heroine, Romantic, Creator, Believer, Escapist, and Voyager. The colours are bold and extremely pigmented, which helps the with the long lasting look. Lover and Pioneer have been in heavy rotation for me, and I feel like Believer will be added in very soon.

As you may have noticed, makeup this spring is all about colour; adding bright pops of it into your look is a really easy way to update for the new season and freshen up. The new L’Oreal Paris Infallible Paints Lip are a surefire way to inject a little more of this springtime trend into your look without having to go too far out of your comfort zone.

Available in a variety of shades ranging from deep plums to neutral nudes to popping pinks, with a side of bold (there’s a killer navy shade available, not pictured here), they’ve created a really nice selection of shades to flatter different styles and skintones. I’ve personally been on a bit of a nude kick and have been loving lip shades with a bit of a dusty rose feel, so Nude Star (312) has been a favourite of mine. When I feel like being a bit bolder, I also like to swipe a bit of Sultry Sangria (326) on.

The lip paints come with a curved applicator with a bit of a pointed tip, so application is really comfortable and it’s easy to perfect your lines. I’m a big fan of the formulation of these; they’re creamy and soft, so your lips never feel dried out. They have a soft, slightly shiny finish that gives the lips a bit of a plump look.

Another win with these comes with their pigmentation. The colour is exactly what you would expect from looking at the tubes, and they provide really strong colour that blends easily. Some of the darker shades can be a bit streaky if you apply a little heavily, but they can be easily blended by patting with your finger or a tissue.
