ColourPop Ultra Matte Lippies review

Finally, I get to try the ColourPop Ultra Matte lippies. I got Dr.M, Jellies, Guess, Kapow, and the Foxy Mini set which includes the "bestsellers" Beeper, Clueless, Tulle, Creeper, and More Better.  Featured lips are Dr.M and Tulle. This is a perfect example of a love-hate relationship. 

I was so excited about these. I tried Dr.M first. The color is gorgeous but instead of being a true green, its leans a bit towards a turquoise. I wore it to work and got tons of compliments. That was the pros, now for the cons. First off, the wand doesn't pick up enough product and I have to dip about 5 times to fully cover my lips. Secondly, and some may consider this a plus, the product dries super fast. So fast that my top lip is dry before I can finish the bottom. This is with thin coats. I also cannot purse my lips at all while its drying or it will create patches. Once it did dry, it was beautiful. But as soon as i smiled, it cracked and flaked everywhere. I reapplied it at least 4 times during my 8hr shift because it kept flaking. Thicker layers made it worse. Taking it off was a bitch and it left a slight stain for a lil while. The green stain on my lips made me look sick, hence the many reapplies. Love the color. Horrible application. 

Now Tulle on the other hand went on like a dream. I was able to rub my lips together while it dried and no patches formed. It felt like my lips had on nothing. My lips felt soft but not drying. The color is similar to KVD Lolita but darker. The flawless application was also similar. This one didn't smudge or budge. No cracks or flakes.

I have not tried any others yet. Im somewhat hesitant because I'd hate for more of them to turn out like the green, and I can't return any of it. I gotta find my disposable wands for swatches before I do.

Movie Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings

Finally got done suffering thru Exodus: Gods and Kings. Two and a half hours of ridiculousness, blasphemy, and GTFOHWTBS. Much like the movie Noah, this one also had a storyline that was so far fetched from the original story that it shouldn't even have the same names. Some of the worst examples are:

1. Moses walks around almost all of the movie without his walking stick. So there is nothing of him turning his stick into a snake. That whole part of the original story is left out. (how could you? That's one of the best parts of the story)

2. Moses is exiled, not because he kills someone, but because Ramses found out he was Hebrew. (so that's how yall doing it?)

3. The Red Sea doesnt part. Its just low tide. (booooooooo)

4. Ramses and Moses both get swept away when the water returns. And both live. (like really? REALLY?!? Pffft)

And the worst of all: God is portrayed by an 8yr old white boy. The bush burned in the background for a minute or two but it was the boy who spoke. NO. NO. NO. and NO. (this is the first time I had to stop the movie, but it wasn't the only time)

This was such a huge ton of crap. Took me several times to finish this movie cause its hard to watch such egregious faults. Dont watch it. You'll be pissed!

Influenster Frosty VoxBox

Influenster Frosty VoxBox 

This is the first VoxBox I've received in a long time. I used to get them more often but then after the revamp, it was like a cold silence. But I remained patient and my reward was this beautiful box. 


I got Sugar Plum in my #FrostyVoxBox. I did not like the color. I was able to swap it for Berry Me because I still wanted to try the product. I really like this color. The lipstick is very smooth and there was not a lot of bleeding since I didnt use a lip liner. It didnt make my lips dry either. I like it.

I've always been a fan of Celestial Seasonings and Candy Cane is always a holiday fave. I was stoked to get this. I used to eat Twizzlers but hated how tough they were. These are way better. Theyre very soft and not super sweet but very flavorful. I like the bites because I can have just a few pieces if I want versus a whole rope.

While the Thyme seemed out of place in the box, it found the perfect place in my kitchen. My thyme jar on the spice rack was getting kinda low. Its not something I use often but its always good to have on hand. The brush on the other hand, I have absolutely no use for since I have locks. This will be given away to someone who needs it. My mom just got a brush in a gift set so she doesnt need another one when she barely uses the one she has. 

The eye makeup remover was a delight to see. I have tried all kinds of makeup removers that are either creamy, oily, or wipes. This is my first "watery" makeup remover. I've seen them before but just never tried any so I was happy that now I have one to try. And it works great. The only problem is that it does burn a little if it gets in your eye. I just make sure to keep my eye closed until I dry the area after cleaning. 

The last two products I have yet to try. Im not a fan of foil packs because theyre usually not enough to really test a product's effectiveness. And I have a bajillion black eyeliners. But this one is at the front of the list on the next one that I start using when my other one goes out.

All in all, this was a great box and I was so happy to get it. I cant wait for the next VoxBox.

I received the product(s) complimentary to test and/or review
