[GIVEAWAY] Red Lip Picks ft. Bobbi Brown, Pony Effect, and Bite Beauty

As repeatedly stated, I'm a huge red lipstick lover. I also feel like I annually put out a red lipstick post as well but this time, I'm focusing on three formulas I've really enjoyed throughout this year with a bonus giveaway! I photographed using my own products, but the products in the giveaway are brand new.

Shining Brightly With The Maybelline Matte Metallics

I recently received the Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipsticks in Smoked Silver and Molten Bronze* for free from Influenster and I tried so hard to be creative and fun with them, but I ended up with basic full face swatches. I'm going to be doing a mini review at the end of this post, but I'm not really a fan of this formula. They do retail for about $7 and so they're affordable and easy to play with, but I don't plan on using them a lot outside of fun makeup looks at home.

Feeling Minnie and Cute with The Saem

So, I went a bit crazy when the Disney x The Saem collection came out with all of their Mickey and Minnie Mouse products. Some items were new, but a lot of them were repackaged with the special packaging. Considering that I have a very weak spot for Mickey and Minnie Mouse and don't have a lot of The Saem products, I very happily loaded up my shopping cart on Jolse. This post is just going to include my haul and first impressions but let me know if you want a full review of any of these products!

Review & Swatches: Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Starstruck and Trippin

Fenty Beauty is probably the brand I've been the most excited about in years. Rihanna's IDGAF attitude is something I aspire to have one day and I absolutely love her makeup and fashion choices. They might not always be for me, but she always looks so beautiful. Once she announced her makeup line, I knew I definitely wanted to pick up some things no matter what they were. 

I originally picked up the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Starstruck and trio in Medium (Bamboo, Mocha, and Trippin) but ended up returning the trio and getting Trippin just by itself. Each Match Stix contains 0.25 ounches / 7.10 grams of product and retails for $25 on the Sephora website here.

Worn In Perfection ft. The Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colors

One of my newest and favorite discoveries is the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colors. While I like a full opaque lip color, I'm also really into the worn / lived in lipstick look as well. When this new formula was released, I was so excited and immediately went to swatch every single color. I really had to hold myself back from buying all of my favorites. Bobbi Brown describes the Crushed Lip Colors as the ultimate swipe and go formula with the feel of a balm and I got to say - I agree wholeheartedly! The full sized lip stick contains 3.4 grams / 0.12 ounces of product and retails for $29 from the below websites -

A Glow That's Out Of This World

I've been experiment with makeup a lot more for the past few months and the more fun / out there parts have started to seep into my normal life. One of the unexpectedly wearable things I've started to do is wear unnatural colored highlighters! I do work in an office that isn't too conservative, but some of the highlighters I've found aren't too crazy until I'm in direct sunlight. This definitely isn't an everyday thing but it's the perfect thing to add when I want to take a step above no-makeup makeup. 

I would say that all of these shades are multi-use products as well. Some perform better on certain parts of the face than others though depending on the texture.
