Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick Review & Swatches

Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slicks

Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick ($18) is one of several new Ciate makeup products launching for Spring 2015 as a permanent part of the Ciate Collection. Most know Ciate is all about nails but they’ve been slowly venturing into the world of color cosmetics and this Spring they have launched an affordable mid-range collection of delicious makeup products!

Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick is one of those products. This five shade selection liquid lipstick is a non drying, long wearing pigmented formula that makes for an excellent start in the makeup world!

Well done Ciate! You’ve successfully capture my attention with this lipstick and made me want to try more of your products.

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick Review & Swatches

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick

Oh lord where does one start with Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick ($2.99)? Jordana introduced Modern Matte Lipstick to their permanent color cosmetics collection for Spring 2015 in 12 shade selections. They market these as a “kiss your dry matte lipstick goodbye and say hello to modern matte” which implies to me they are hydrating. They also call them an all day wear formula without the typical dry lip finish that feathers and cracks.

Something got terribly lost in translation here!

E.L.F. Frozen Elsa Super Glossy Lip Shine Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Frozen Elsa Super Glossy Lip Shine

The E.L.F. Frozen Elsa Super Glossy Lip Shine Lipglosses in Pink Kiss and Fuchsia Fireworks are a range of limited edition glosses that launched with the E.L.F. Disney Frozen Elsa Makeup Collection for Spring 2015.

E.L.F. did something a little different with Elsa’s Collection compared to other Disney Collections they’ve done. For example, these two new Super Glossy Lip Shines are $2.99 each and do not come in a set the way, for example, the E.L.F. Disney Jasmine A Whole New World Lip Collection did.

This is nice because you have the option of shades to choose from but also it’s a little more expensive considering some of the past lip sets were marked at around $5.99 and included THREE lip products. Purchased individually you’re spending $6 and lacking one full size product that would be available in sets that launched in the past. $2.99 isn’t a big deal really but it deserves mentioning these details none the less!
