Review: Longwear Lipsticks/ Lipstains

So I am going to do a review on longwear/ lip stains. I have 1 longwear lipstick and 2 lipstains. All of them are from MAC.
So the longwear which is called Perpetual and it is a red color. This is from MAC's prolongwear collection that is been out for awhile now and they are permanent colors. This is not a stain lipstick though so i have ate with it on and some of the lipstick did come off but my lips still looked like really pigmented with the color. Eventually you probably would have to reapply but I would recommend this for people with dry lips because its really smooth and creamy.Mac has other colors also. Below is a picture of what the longwear lipstick looks like. I really overall like the pro longwear lipsticks and they have so many other colors and for the people who dont like lipstains than this would be the next best thing for you.
So the next products I have are lipstains. The colors I have are Night Rose and Femme Forever. They are very similar colors. Night rose is like a pink mauve color and Femme Forever is like this shiny pink color.
Here are what the colors look like. Its in like a lipgloss tube but is dry like a lipstick and it also comes with either clear or glitter gloss if you want to add some shine to the color. So these lipstains will last ALL DAY long. If you are looking for a lipstick that you wont have to reapply than this is the lipstain for you. For me I personally dont like lipstains because i have dry lips so when i apply this than it drys it out more but lipstains are meant to dry your lips so the product can sync into your lips. I even tried to use makeup wipes and I had to really rub my lips to get the product off. This is a great product for the right person. I would not recommend this to people who have dry lips. They do have other colors if you do not like these colors and I do believe drugstore companies have lipstains also. Overall the product does exactly what it is suppose to do.
 First picture is using the Femme Forever Lipstain. Second Picture is me using Night Rose Lipstain
 Here is what they look on my hand next to each other Left: Femme Forever, Right: Night Rose
 The next picture is what the prolongwear looks like swatched.
Overall the products are very pigmented and depending on your preference the longwear or lipstain would be your best option especially when you want to go out on the town or to dinner without wanted to reapply your lipstick. I hope you all enjoyed this review. Feel Free to comment below if you have any comments or questions about these products.

Mac: Lipsticks

So I have always been in love in lipglosses and i just recently been into lipsticks. At first i didnt like lipsticks because you had to reapply and they felt dry to me. I am getting into lipsticks right now and the lipsticks I have are from mac. My favorite finishes are Cremesheen and Amplified. The lipstick that i use the most is Cremecup Lipstick. Here are pictures of my Mac lipstick collection.
So the lipsticks that I have are Up the Amp, Cremecup, Something New, Infused with Glam and Perpectual.
Something New Lipstick is a bright pink and that came out with the Stylishly Yours Collection so it was limited edition. And Perpectual which is the Red lipstick is from the Pro Longwear lipsticks which is suppose to last 8hours. It isnt a lipstain because the color does come off but it is so pigmented that you dont really need to reapply unless you rubbed it off.
I recently also back to mac Pink Noveau Lipstick that i really like. And i do also have Hibiscus lipstick from Surf baby.

Haul: Surf Baby Collection

So i went to Mac when the new surf baby collection came out. I new even before the collection came out that i wanted My Paradise Cheek Powder, Hibiscus Lipstick and Strange Potion Lipglass. I went the day after the collection was released. So I was so upset that they sold My Paradise Powder the day it came out. So I ended up getting Hibiscus Lipstick and Summer Stash Crush Metallic Pigments. I heard some negative things about the Pigments like it works only if you use your fingers but I absolutely love them. I use a brush and it works great for me. I ended up calling macy's where my bf lives which is an hour away from me and they had the My paradise powder. yay. So he picked it up for me and i love the powder. A week later I decided I wanted something else from the collection so I got Surf The Ocean Metallic pigment stack and i love that one too. I am very pleased with my purchase. I use the Hibiscus Lipstick almost everyday and if they still have it online at MAC than i think i need to buy a backup asap. I did want the Guilty Bronze bronzing stick but decided not to get it.
Here are pictures of what i got:
 This is what I got from the collection. I love everything.
 Here is what the Surf the Ocean Stack looks like.

Review: RockABetty Beauty Cosmetics

I have bought some products from Rockabetty beauty also known as RABB. So these items were not sent to me for free. I got 10 (3gram) jars of random eyeshadows fro $20 and free shipping using a code. I had never used used any e/s from this company before so it was so hard to pick eyeshadows so thank goodness she had that deal going on and i think that deal is still going on.
I found Rabb cosmetics on facebook and ordered from them on They owner makes her own eyeshadows and sells them. She is very nice and has great customer service:)
Now i got a variety of diferent colors and one sample. Here are the colors i got:

I have tried every color except pandora. The colors are so gorgeous and very pigmented and i recommend that you use the e/s wet because the colors come out so much more sparkly and and vibrant. The quality of the e/s are very good and they are so easy to blend and work with. I really recommend you try out some of these colors. My favorite e/s has to most definitly be Maneater which is the sample. I do have one thing that i do not like. The sample doesnt have a twist off cap, so you have to snap it open and close, so when I do snap it close I do see that the some of the product flys out so you are actually using product. So i do prefer the twist off packaging. Besides that I think this is a great company that has great products at a wonderful price. The shipping was very fast, got to my house in two days which is a plus.
