Glittery. Versatile. Amazing. These iredescent lip toppers instantly double your lip color collection as these little beauties can be worn alone or on top of your favorite lip product. It is a perfect addition when wanting to add a little drama to your usual look.
The Diamond Crushers formula is non-sticky and glides easily over the lips. The glitter stays where it’s supposed to and doesn’t get all over your face.
The Lime Crime website describes them as, a weightless water-based formula that goes on matte and dries to a smudge-proof finish. Can be worn alone or over liquid matte lipstick without making it run, and the lightweight water-based formula is filled with light-reflective iridescent shimmers that dance and glisten with you as you move.
Ten beautiful, sparkling shades including:
- Choke (baby pink/baby blue)
- Lit (rose gold)
- Cleopatra (blush/gold)
- Acid Fairy (lavender/mint)
- Black Unicorn (black rainbow)
- Cheap Thrill (sunset/rose)
- Dope (cotton candy pink/champagne)
- Strip (bright pink)
- Fluke (mauve/blue)
- Trip (purple/turquoise)
Available for $18 on the Lime Crime website and some shades are available on ASOS as well.
Those of you who also follow me on Instagram @AllThingsAdoredOfficial know that I have been using the Rimmel London Provocalips quite religiously as of late.
These are definitely one of my current favorites.
The application is smooth, the colors are fantastic, and as advertised it lasts foreverrrrr!
Provocalips comes in 14 gorgeous shades and is available at Target, Walmart, and Ulta.
The Ulta website describes the product as follows:
Rimmel’s Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour is an exclusive 2 step product that locks in vibrant color for 16 hours. It’s so incredibly lightweight and flexible that it adapts to the movement of your lips. These seductively rich shades bring out that femme fatale in you! Wow color, incredible shine and zero trace!
I can totally agree with the lightweight and flexiblity claims, and the color lasts and lasts through eating, drinking, kissing, etc. Nachos, it even lasted through eating nachos!!
At no point while wearing this product did my lips feel dried out (like some long lasting lip colors can do), or get clumpy. The color remained smooth and my lips remained moisturized.
The cost is approximately $6-7 depending on where you shop, and is a super great price for the quality of product you are getting.
Thanks for reading! 🙂 If you have a long-wearing lip color you think is also amazing, let me know in the comments below!
Smooth, silky, and long lasting! Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipstick is one you’ll want to add to your ever growing cosmetics collection. This liquid to matte lipstick goes on velvety smooth, and dries to a soft matte finish, with no stickiness or clumping.
Available in 26 shades, from Drug Lord (bright white) to Weirdo (blackest of blacks), and every color in between.
Each lipstick costs $18, and is well worth every penny. This is a product where you get what you pay for (and even at $18, it’s a bargain).

Liquid lipsticks are here to stay and one of my more recent discoveries has been Lime Crime’s Velvetines line.
These velvety rich lip colors go on smoothly and dry to a nice matte finish. The color is long lasting and stays put.
The shade “Beet It” (pictured above) is a beautiful deep berry color. It is undoubtedly one of my new favorite colors.
22 shades from classic colors to the bold and unique. Prices range from $16 to $20 depending on the color and they are cruelty free and vegan.

I recently added a few shades of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream to my ever-growing makeup collection and am happy to say that they will remain there.
I had already been using several of the Butter Glosses by NYX, and loved them. They are super versatile. They can be worn by themselves, with lipliner, or as a gloss over your lipstick to add some sheen and moisture. The application is smooth and the color ranges from semi-sheer to medium coverage. There is absolutely no sticky feeling with these, which is hit or miss with many lip glosses.
The Soft Matte Lip Cream’s are of equal caliber! The main differences between the two of these is that the matte lip cream has a greater color payoff and obviously they set to a matte finish, rather than a glossy one. The application is soft and the durability is strong. These no undoubtedly would be a welcomed addition to any lip connoisseurs collection.
