NYX Cosmetics Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Speed of Light – Review, Photos & Swatches

img_0034-copy The NYX Cosmetics Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Speed of Light lip cream ($7.49) is described as an intense, multidimensional color collides with the glistening effect of gloss for out-of-this world lips like you've never seen before. Creamy smooth with a dazzling metallic finish, NYX Cosmetics' Cosmic Metals Lip Cream covers your lips in lustrous color that feels and looks like a gloss.


I've been dying for a true rose gold liquid lipstick that I could wear without the color being washed away on me. This is it.

Final thoughts: It's a non-sticky, metallic creme liquid lipstick. It's very comfortable on the lips and doesn't feel grainy. Be aware that it does not dry down and it is not transfer proof.

Availability: $7.49 at Ulta.com - I was able to get it for $5.50 with their coupons.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bauhau5 – Swatches, Video & Photos + Swatches On A Woman of Color

[embed]https://youtu.be/uzIdGqZXvZE[/embed] Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bauhau5 is described as a deep raspberry but on me it shows up like a hot pink with purple undertones; kind of like a fuchsia. It is true to the name that it is an everlasting matte lipstick once applied and dried down - the only issue that I have with it is that it did apply a bit uneven and patchy in some areas that my hyperpigmentation on my lips showed through. It evened out once I applied a second coat, however, that made it a bit thicker on my lips so keep that in mind.

Coloured Raine 24Seven Liquid Lipstick – Swatches, Photos, Video & Review

Coloured Raine 24Seven Liquid Lipstick ($17) is a matte deep rose pink liquid lipstick with beige undertones. img_4505-copy-gain

Coloured Raine is a black owned beauty business that creates products that are cruelty, paraben, gluten free and vegan. These lip paints are very pigmented and only need one swipe across the lips to show - please note that these are not the ones that you want to try and layer - don't do it to your lips. As always, make sure that you exfoliate and add some moisture to your lips before applying.

Here is a video of me applying it so you can get a better idea of the color.
