Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick “Queen B” | Review

Hello friends!

I’m back today with another liquid lipstick review! Would you be surprised to know that when I was in my wild buy-everything phase it was during the height of liquid lip popularity? You would not believe the amount of liquid lipsticks I still have left to share with you all.

A little caveat for this review, I believe this particular lipstick is starting to go off and the formula is changing. I don’t think that it’s going to change the review too dramatically, but it’s important to point out that my experience with this lipstick and formula may not be the norm.

Color: Queen B is a cool toned pink, and when dried down it has an almost purple-grey look to it. While I do enjoy cool toned lipsticks, pinks are not up there for my favorite shades.

Finish: This liquid lipstick formula is one that, unsurprisingly, dries down to a completely matte finish.

Packaging: The packaging on this lipstick is definitely unique compared to most liquid lipsticks! It’s an acrylic tube, but starts in a cylinder shape and then changes into a rectangle at the bottom. The cap is a satin gold color, and the printing of the product name/information is a metallic gold. Even the wand is acrylic!

Applicator: The applicator for this liquid lipstick is a standard doefoot; nothing special to report here!

Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick “Oh My Ry Ry” | Review

Hello friends!

I’m back with another review on the Madison Miller collaboration with Ofra!  Today we’ll be looking at the liquid lipstick she came out with.  Once again, Ipsy came in clutch with this collection so I was able to purchase this sample through their add-on program.

Color: The Ofra website lists this color as a “neutral mauve-pink”.  This is a very accurate descriptor – this pink shade definitely has a purple undertone to it, but not so much that I’d consider it colorful. However, I do not consider this a nude on me, as the color overall is quite pink.

Finish: With this being a matte liquid lipstick, it does dry down to a mostly-matte finish. Ofra liquid lipsticks tend to stay just a touch shiny, as they don’t fully dry down for comfort’s sake.  That said, there’s not so much of a sheen that it’s noticeable, so it will still look like a matte lipstick on the lips.

Packaging: The packaging for my lipstick is actually the sample packaging – Ofra’s full size products come in square tubes.  However, the tube between both is still acrylic with the matte white cap.  The printing on the label looks to be the same as well, but all in one area (as pictured) instead of on different sides like it would be with the square tube.

I don’t know if it’s because my lipstick is relatively old or the sample packaging, but I did have an issue with a piece in the cap coming loose and sticking to the stopper.  I can put the wand back into the tube and it will return to the cap instead of continuing to stick, but just something to note.

Applicator: The applicator is a standard doefoot that works well with most liquid lipstick formulas, and this one is no exception.  The doefoot is also pretty smooth, so no spots where it’s fluffy and makes it difficult to get a clean application.

Application: With the formula being slightly moussey, there were times where a little too much product came out on the wand and I had to scrape it against the stopper to remove the excess.  Actually applying the product was incredibly easy; the shape of the doefoot makes it easy to get nice lines and an even application.

Coloured Raine Liquid Lipstick “24Seven” | Review

Hello friends!

Once again, I have to thank Ipsy for the ability to buy brands that aren’t easily accessible (read: Sephora or Ulta) so that I can try them!  I’ve heard a lot of great things about Coloured Raine’s eyeshadows, but was interested in their liquid lipsticks this time.

Color: The Coloured Raine website defines 24Seven as a “deep rose pink with beige undertones”.  This is definitely an accurate description!  The color is quite pink – more pink than I was hoping, however, the undertones are very neutral.  It’s deeper than a lot of other pinks on the market as well.

Finish: This liquid lipstick dries down completely matte, like any other thin liquid formula.

Packaging: The packaging is a clear acrylic tube with a neon pink cap.  The entire tube has pink dots on it, and the Coloured Raine logo in the same pink shade. The dots almost look like paint splatter, but are a little too neat.  The effect is very cool and unique!

Applicator: The doefoot is an interesting shape – it’s a flat paddle.  It’s also much longer than a traditional doefoot, and holds a lot more product.  There’s no distinct shape to it, and I didn’t find that I had any difficulty getting straight lines as I would with a standard applicator.

Colourpop Creme Lux Lipstick “Belle” | Review

Hello friends!

In true Colourpop fashion, when I ordered from their website I just had to get free shipping, so I put a few things in my cart to make it up to $30 – no surprise the stunning Disney collection helped get me there!

Colourpop Creme Lux Lipstick "Belle" | Review - A Midwest Belle

Color: Belle is a deep mauve-pink with warm undertones. It’s definitely on the neutral side in terms of a pink, but I don’t think I could say it’s a nude like I had originally thought when purchasing. Colourpop’s website describes it as a “rosy berry”, which I think is very accurate.

Finish: Despite the name of this lipstick being “creme”, I think the finish is closer to a satin-cream.  It’s not as creamy looking as other bullet lipsticks, but there is a bit of shine so it’s not a flat matte either.
