MAC Lipstick Collection Review, Photos, and Swatches


MAC Lipstick Collection
My very first MAC lipstick was Faux from way back when and never thought I would haul a lot of MAC lippies to this day.  It's not surprising that MAC makes really unique, pigmented lipsticks with over 100 colors in their permanent collection.

YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil Review, Photos, and Swatches

YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil (Cherry My Cherie 5)


Hello beauties!  Lip tints are starting to pop up with just a few cosmetic brands recently.  I would best describe lip tints to be a hybrid component between the shine of a gloss, intense color of a lipstick, and the moisturizing effect of a lip balm.  So how does YSL Tint-In-Oil define itself from the rest?
