Beauty on a Budget

Harry Potter Lipsticks from LA Splash

LA Splash Harry Potter Smitten LipTint Mousse

Muggles, rejoice! Harry Potter Lipsticks from LA Splash have arrived. Well, not really Harry Potter Lipsticks but ones named after the beloved characters in the J.K. Rowling Harry Potter Books!

LA Splash Smitten LipTint Mousse ($14) is a new waterproof non transfer liquid lipstick with a matte finish. These new vibrant lipsticks are available in 17 shades selections with several of the shades being named after characters from Harry Potty.

Of course, the idea of Harry Potter Lipsticks has broken the Internet with fights breaking out all over the fandom world because some shades don’t really match up well to their characters. For example, Sirius’ shade is a navy blue where as the fandom believes it should be black.

Technically if anyone should have a black gothy lipstick it should be Snape but as much as I love Harry Potter it’s a fandom I won’t fight with, I wouldn’t win and I’d come home bruised, bloodied, or possibly dead if I tried.

Maybe one day MAC will actually get on the geeky makeup bandwagon and gift us with some amazing Harry Potter or Doctor Who Collection.

Until then we can just fight over which shades of Harry Potter Lipstick should correspond to its character.

LA Splash Smitten LipTint Mousse is available now at lasplashcosmetics.com.

Milani Awakening Rose Rose Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Milani Awakening Rose Powder Blush

Milani Awakening Rose Rose Powder Blush ($7.99) is one of three new, limited edition Milani Rose Powder Blush shades that launched for Summer 2015.

One of the things that set these new shades apart from others was the fact they have a luminous finish! Sadly though, I noticed seeing that effect best from Blossomtime Rose versus any of the other shades!

Awakening Rose doesn’t quite have that luminous glow I’m always seeking out in blushes but it is a very solid, neutral shade that should look very nice on fairer skin tones.

Take a peek!
