The Power of Lipstick, the Glossy Rainbow Edition

Here’s my last installment of my “Power of Lipstick” Trilogy. I’m ending this last lipstick part with my favorite colors that are more on the edgy side but are still hot, fun, and beautiful to wear.

It was hard for me to choose which colors I wanted to show here but here are my top faves:

1. “Savage” (mega matte,) Vice lipstick by Urban Decay- This bright pink lipstick is hot hot hot. I love wearing this lipstick, especially when I do a colorful look, a hot psychobilly look, or just for fun. The Urban Decay VICE formula is one of my favorite lip formulas and I definitely recommend checking them out. I also use the matching Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on lipliner in “Frenemy”

2. “Twitch” (cream) Vice lipstick by Urban Decay- I love this beautiful purple color. It’s not too dark, it’s not too light. It’s the perfect purple lipstick. With this color, I don’t wear lip liner all the time but when I do, I use  Urban Decay 24/7 glide on lipliner in”Pandemonium.” 

3. “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Velour liquid lipstick from Jeffree Star Cosmetics- last year I did a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s shoot and the last few photos I had shot, I put this lipstick on. I thought it would be fun and those pictures looked really cool with it on. One of my favorite films, if not my favorite of all time is “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” and I love how this lipstick is the exact shade of Tiffany’s bags and box packaging. If you haven’t seen my Breakfast at Tiffany’s shoot, definitely check it out here.

4. “Venus Flytrap” Velour liquid lipstick from Jeffree Star Cosmetics (Chrome Collection)- I’ve used this fabulous green chartreuse color many times A LOT in makeup tutorials and looks. Some might think how or why would you wear this color but that’s just because you’re unique, like to stand out, and are fabulous.

5. “Trinket” liquid lip color by Sugarpill- In my December Hits/Misses youtube video, I talked about buying and wearing this color and it was definitely a HIT for me. If you haven’t done so already, please go check that youtube vid out on my youtube channel and I posted it here in December as well. “Trinket” is  Sugarpill’s very first liquid lipstick, and has a sexy Matte to Sparkle formula. The color is a matte mauve infused with luminous golden sparkles that stay and become more bright as the formula dries. I love the pigment and how it is very long-lasting and never feels too dry.  

Most of you know I rarely wear lip gloss on a daily basis but the I do have few that I absolutely love wearing, either by itself on top of regular lipstick.


Here are my favorite glosses and toppers:

1. “Melted Honey” by Chanel- This sparkly gold gloss is so sexy and looks very sexy on when worn alone. It also looks hot when you have a lipstick on already, like a dark red or purple, and then apply the gloss in just the center of your lips.

2. “Rose Gold” lip topper by Jouer Cosmetics- Jouer has the best lip toppers. My Rose Gold is stunning and again very sexy. The glitter and color is very pigmented and doesn’t feel sticky. It smells yummy too, like caramel. Like with my Chanel gloss, this lip topper looks wickedly sexy alone or on top of lipstick.


Hope you enjoyed reading my list of lipsticks and my reviews on them. I definitely recommend checking out every color I speak about in all three parts of my “Power of Lipstick” series. Thank you so much.

The Power of Lipstick, the NUDE Edition

If you haven’t read “The Power of Lipstick, the RED Edition” article I posted a few days ago, I suggest you do so NOW! There are so many benefits of having a swatch of red on your lippy but if you truly don’t feel comfortable, here is the NUDE EDITION to the “Power of Lipstick Series.” NUDE lipsticks can be fun, for certain looks such as if you like a deep dark smoky eye and a pale nude lipstick.

There are a variety of different shades of NUDE lipsticks and here are my favorites:


1. “Nathan” velour liquid lipstick by Jeffree Star Cosmetics- This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE NUDE lipstick. 

2. “Rose Matter” velour liquid lipstick by Jeffree Star Cosmetics- This was one of the first Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks I ever bought with “Unicorn Blood. This soft neutral coral is like crushed petals on your lips. 

3. “Deceased” velour liquid lipstick by Jeffree Star Cosmetics- This darker nude is a sexy mauve-greige tone.



1. “Doting” “Meet Matt(e) Hughes” long-lasting liquid lipstick by the Balm. This is a beautiful peachy color that smells like chocolate and caramel.

2. “Sincere” “Meet Matte(e) Hughes” long-lasting liquid lipstick by the Balm. This is a lovely peachy mauve color and again it smells like desert.

3. “Celebrity Skin”  lip ammunition lipstick by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. The lip ammunition has a satin finish and very creamy. This soft brown nude has a peachy undertone. 








The Power of Lipstick, The RED Edition

  My signature color of course is red. Red is my favorite color and I love wearing it on my pout. I mainly wear classic red which is a blue toned red which looks better on me rather than an orange based lipstick. Blue toned is also more versatile and looks great on all skin tones.

   Sometimes I like wearing a deeper burgundy or a brighter shade but it’s still in the red family. I sometimes change up my lipstick color for fun or if it’s for a certain look but classic red is my go to.

Here is a list of my favorite red lipsticks, both liquid and in a regular lipstick tube. A long time ago I did an article on here about my favorite red shaded lipstick so you might recognize one or two shades that I had mentioned long about but for the most stuf I’m showing new reds. Also I do mention the same makeup brands more than once such as Jeffree Star Cosmetics and MAC but the only reason why is that I love and truly believe in those formulas and love wearing them! 


1.  “RedRum” Velour liquid lipstick by Jeffree Star Cosmetics- (I know I’ve said this before but Jeffree’s liquid formula is my absolute favorite liquid lipstick formula.) RedRum is the perfect classic blue toned red with a sexy matte finish and you’ll all know I’m a matte lipstick whore.

2.   “BAWSE” Always on liquid lipstick by Smashbox- I had always heard a lot of great things about Smashbox’s lipsticks but the reds always seemed too orange for my complexion but when I saw “Bawse” a few months ago, I knew I had to try it. It’s a fantastic blueish red, the formula is wonderful, and the applicator point is a triangle-shaped so you can use it as a lipliner before filling in your lips.

3.   “Russian Red” Matte lipstick by MAC.- This lipstick I had posted in my last favorite red lipstick article but of course the reason why is that it’s a fabulous matte classic red that I still love using.

Here are my two favorite red lipliners that I’ve talked about before many times but because I love the colors and the smooth non-drying formula. Make sure to line and fill in you lips before applying lipstick. A lot of people don’t think it’s necessary to use liner if you’re using a liquid formula but I still do to define my lipstick clearly.

    “WONDERLAND” and “714” 24/7 Glide-On lip pencil, both by Urban Decay. The 24/7 glide-on lip pencils is my absolute favorite lip liner formula. It goes on smoothly and doesn’t dry out your lips.



Here are other red lipsticks that I like using. Some are deeper shades than the classic red: 

1.   “RED HAUTE” Color Design matte by Lancome- A very beautiful matte cool-toned red.

2.   “UNICORN BLOODVelour Liquid Lipstick by Jeffree Star Cosmetics- This was the first lipstick I ever purchased and I love this color. It’s a dusty dark rusty matte lipstick that is very deep and sultry.

3.   “STRANGE LOVE” Liquid Lip Color by SugarPill- Sugarpill is one of my favorite makeup brands and I was very excited to try this color. I first got it with the limited edition Feline Fancy makeup collection bundle but they now sell this lipstick separately. This deep red is metallic with a little extra sparkle. Simply beautiful.

4. “FRANK N FURTER” Rocky Horror Picture Show Edition (matte) by MAC. I believe you can still by this shade online. I posted on article on here a long time ago when I got the Rocky Horror lipstick collection so click on the tag here to read it if you hadn’t before. This matte color is a beautiful deeper shade of a cool shade of red and is especially good if you don’t feel comfortable wearing a bright classic red but still want to rock a red lippy.

Star Family Collection Velour Liquid Lipstick Colors


As promised in my last post, here the new liquid lipstick colors from the Star Family Collection.

When it comes to lipstick, as most of you know, my go to color is a beautiful classic red but sometimes it’s fun to change it up, whether it be a sensual nude or a more funky different color like a barbie pink or periwinkle blue.

I love Jeffree’s liquid lip formula and was very excited to get these new colors to play and have fun with. I believe makeup should always be fun.

Here is me with all the shades and the color names in order from top to bottom as well as swatches from left to right.

1. Nathan




3. Diva


4. Diamond


5. Delicious


6. Baby Daddy



Oh p.s, the Star Family collection box set is priced at $75.00 dollars which I think is a great price for six lipsticks or you can of course buy the lipsticks separately for $18.00. Jeffree and Nathan also came out with a new skin frost highlighter and a lip scrub which will definitely be my next purchase. Check it out at or
