TokyoMilk Dark Femme Fatale Lip Elixir - Salted Caramel No. 36 - Yumm!

During my birthday splurge in August, I picked up a Tokyo Milk Dark Femme Fatale Lip Elixir in No. 36-Salted Caramel.  Sephora describes it's notes as: ""Sweet Cream, Sea Salt, Caramelized Sugar, Toasted Vanilla Bean."  They could've saved themselves some word space and just used one word: HEAVEN.

I am not kidding.  It is a rich, heavenly, dense scent.  It is almost too sweet - I can't use it before lunch time before I don't like sweets before then, LOL.  It's literally one of the most potent products I've come across.  Yummmmmm.
 The texture is unlike other lip products I have, and believe me, I have more than a few.  I've probably mentioned more than once that primers and lip ANYTHINGS are my favorite products to try.  It is almost as if a rubber, protective coating is smeared across the lips.

Sounds weird, right?  I mean that in a good way, a really good way.  You can literally feel it working and sinking into your lips.

My only complaint about this product is the tin itself.  Although it is a nice, open package that will allow me to get to every bit of the product, it is one of those pop-open tins that you have to wrestle with to open every time.  The edge has a little ridge you have to pop open.  This packaging is NOT friendly to someone who adores a chip-free mani!

I actually Facebooked them for suggestions of other products in JARS and they did get back to me.  If it is the same formula, I will def repurchase in a jar.  In the meantime, I pretty much have to ask my boyfriend to open it for me, and he gets annoyed and rolls his eyes every time.  I may have to de-pot and re-pot some of this into something a little more user friendly...and as I type this, I am sitting here laughing at myself.

I can't be the only one!  Let me know I'm not crazy!!!! Do you prefer products in tins, jars, pots, tubes, and why?!?!!?!?

Leave me comments or FB me!

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
