Swatch of The Day - MAC Betty Bright Lipstick

» Price -  $16.50
» Availability - Limited Edition - Sold Out MAC Cosmetics Try your local MAC counter or store.
» Overall Rating - Please excuse the delay in this post. I apologize that this lipstick is currently sold out. I decided to post up the swatch for anyone that needed a reference in how Betty Bright showed up. This is a lipstick with a satin finish. The color is a vibrant peachy coral. I was pleasantly surprised that it did not wash me out. I did need to layer this color quite a bit but that is the case for most lipsticks with a satin finish that I own.

Swatch of the Day - Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Exposed

» Price -  $24.00
» Availability Tarte, Sephora
» Overall Rating - Amazing lasting power. I can eat and drink with ease, this color does not budge. It is slightly darker than my natural lip color so it gives the illusion of fuller lips. It has a peppermint taste to it that is not overpowering. I love that it is retractable with no need for a separate sharpener. Can't wait to try other colors!

Swatch of the Day - YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Prune in Fire

Hey everyone! This is going to be my first official "Swatch of the Day" post. I thought it would be a fun idea to have these posts so I could share with you all quick swatches of products that I have been using. I am going to try my hardest to post as much as I can through the week. I am going to start working on a better swatch archive! I know I am always searching for swatches of products before I buy them sometimes even when I am in the store browsing through my phone. I hope these posts help everyone out! 

» Price -  $34.00
» Availability Yves Saint Laurent
» Overall Rating - Very hydrating. It glided on smoothly across my lips. It had a delicious fruit taste to it. It provided opaque coverage with shine. It did not feather and wore for 5 hours before signs of fading in the center began to show. My lips felt soft and hydrated even after I removed the color.
