Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor in Always Sienna


Fall is upon us, which means it’s the perfect time of year for warm, neutral lip products! I mean, I suppose they’re perfect year round, but they feel especially appropriate this season! revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-1

The Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor in Always Sienna is the perfect fall shade. It’s a warm, mauve shade with slight brown tones.

The Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolors are dual ended lip products that include the lipcolor on one end and a clear gloss on the other. The lipcolor has a doefoot applicator, and the lipgloss has a brush applicator. revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-3

According to the directions, you’re supposed to apply the lipcolor first, wait for it to dry, and then apply the gloss on top. In theory, you shouldn’t need to apply the color again, but you can add more gloss as needed.revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-4

I applied the lipcolor first (as instructed), and I hated the texture! It felt so sticky and tight on my lips, so I assumed I would hate it regardless. However, once it dried, I applied the gloss on top, and it made a world of difference! With the gloss layered over the lipcolor, it adds moisture back into your lips, and takes away any feelings of discomfort the lipcolor causes. Apparently the gloss contains chamomile and soy extract to help moisturize the lips.revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-5

I’m normally not a gloss person. I love how it looks, but I hate how my hair gets in it and, inevitably, smears it across my face. That is definitely just a personal preference though, and has nothing to do with the quality of the product. 🙂 Also, the gloss eventually wears off with this product, leaving you with just a non-sticky beautiful lip color.revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-6

I love the shade of Always Sienna, and I was AMAZED at the staying power! Revlon claims the product can stay on up to 16 hours, and I’d believe it. It stayed put on me through eating and drinking for at least 12 hours. It isn’t transfer proof, but the color was still totally visible after all that time.revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-7

The gloss wore off quicker than the color, but even when it wore off, the moisturizing components helped my lips feel comfortable. I chose not to reapply the gloss because I preferred the demi-matte look of the lipcolor without having to deal with my hair getting stuck to my lips. 🙂revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-8

During that time I didn’t notice any feathering or bleeding, which was impressive. Glosses usually slip and slide around my lips and always bleed. Perhaps since the lipcolor sets first, it helps prevent feathering. revlon-colorstay-overtime-always-sienna-9

Overall the formula is very unique, and I’m pleased with the color payoff and wear time. If you have extremely dry lips, you may want to avoid this product. I think the lipcolor setting down may bother you too much, but otherwise give this product a try. They have almost 30 colors to choose from, so there’s something for everyone!

Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick by Marc Jacobs in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Love this lipcolor? Me too! I love the shade, the formula, the name…everything! Well…everything except the price. Let me back up a bit, though! This is the Le Marc Lipstick by Marc Jacobs in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is referred to as “dusty rose” or “baked rose.” I think that’s the perfect description! It’s a warm rose tone, that is perfect for everyday wear.

I have been wearing it in a few recent posts and out in public, and I get complimented on it more than any other lipstick I own! I think that’s a testament to what a pretty color it is.

It is also super pigmented, so I think the beautiful color will translate regardless of your natural lip color.

The formula is very moisturizing and extremely long-wearing. I wore this to a blogging event last week, and long after eating lunch and drinking water, it was still going strong.

The price is a little steep for my drugstore taste at around $30 a tube. However, I will say this lipstick lives up to the price. If you want a similar look for less, I would recommend Revlon’s Matte Balm in Sultry. It’s another favorite of mine, and it is also a dusty rose color (albeit slightly darker).

MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme Perpetrual Flame


As someone who mostly wears drugstore makeup, MAC is considered a splurge for me. When I really want to have a “treat yo’ self” moment, I know I can’t go wrong with their products…and I recently discovered, their MAC Prolongwear Lipcreme is absolutely amazing.


This color is Perpetual Flame, and it’s a gorgeous red with just a hint of berry to it. The color payoff is amazing, and it applies smoothly and easily.


I used to not care much about lipstick, but in the last few years, it has become one of my favorite beauty products, and this one is near the top of the list.

The picture below is from FOUR HOURS after I applied my lipstick AND after I ate Pappasito’s.  Anyone that knows Texans knows we don’t mess around when eating Tex Mex. I didn’t hold back, and this lipstick stayed in place perfectly.  (Also, I’m not sure what I mean by “I didn’t hold back”…I don’t eat Tex Mex like a ravenous dog…most of the time…)


Here I am reapplying my MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme. JUST KIDDING. IT NEVER WEARS OFF. Seriously, I’ve worn it for at least 8 hours before, and it didn’t budge. It’s also great because even though it’s long-wearing, my lips never feel dry or uncomfortable when I’m wearing this lipstick.


As you can see, I’m a BIG fan of this lip product, and I think you’ll love it, too! It’s worth the tiny splurge if you’re looking for an amazing, long-wearing lipstick.


What are your favorite shades of lipstick from MAC? Let me know!

Beauty Blurbs: Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor in Warm Me Up


Hey party people! Y’all ready for fall? This warm, nude lipstick is perfect for this season, and honestly, year-round! I’ve reviewed Maybelline’s ColorSensational lipcolors before in Vivid Rose and Vibrant Mandarin, but those colors are just a tad bit bright for October. Since I love the formula of Maybelline ColorSensational lipsticks and they have such a great selection, I decided to look for a fall color within their collection.

I decided on Warm Me Up, and I couldn’t be happier. I would describe Warm Me up as “my lips but better.” It’s almost the same shade as my natural lips, but it has some pinky-brown undertones that give my lips a little extra oomph. To show you how natural looking it is, I only applied it to my top lip in the picture below.2

The formula is relatively long-wearing and pretty moisturizing. I applied it yesterday, and it stayed on for four hours easily. Aside from it being a great product, the price is wallet-friendly, too! 3 I think this color would look great on a variety of skin tones. Since it’s relatively neutral, you could pair it with dramatic eye looks or with a swipe of mascara on days you’re running out the door. 4

This color is very similar to my holy grail lip product, Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, so I think it will be a staple in my makeup routine for quite awhile! 5 Are you as excited as I am about my newest lipstick find?? If not, just give me a fake smile and pretend.


If try Warm Me Up, let me know what you think! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Beauty Blurbs: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Adore


Hey y’all! You already know about my love affair with Revlon lip colors, so I wanted to share another color I picked up: Adore. This shade is a brick color with a touch of shimmer.


Adore is a little more sheer than my other Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, which I don’t prefer. I like it when my lip color completely covers my lips. It still has a great color payoff, but I wanted to mention that it isn’t as pigmented as Crush, for example. The picture above is a picture of Adore just after application with the flash from my camera.


This picture shows the the balm stain in natural light. The color differs based on your natural lip color, as always. For example, my mom purchased this shade first, and it looks completely different on her! If you’re worried about how the shade will look on your own lips, I would recommend purchasing this product somewhere that will honor a refund like Ulta.


The brick color of this lip product makes it perfect for fall, but I think it can be worn in the warmer seasons as well. It’s a great alternative for someone wanting to ease into bolder lip colors, without jumping in with a bright red lip.


As with my other Revlon Balm Stains, this product has a good wear time, but it does rub off and leave a “lipliner effect” on me after eating or drinking. Also, after I have it on for awhile, it does feather a bit around my lip line. I still think it’s a great purchase, especially for the price point!


Thanks for reading my thoughts on Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Adore!

Until next time!
