Colour Pop Ultra Matte Bumble

Happy Saturday, friends!

Today's post is a little different. I'll be showing you one of my Colour Pop Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks. These were launched a couple of weeks ago and they caused a huge frenzy online. After seeing swatches of them on YouTube and Instagram, I knew I needed some too!

I was able to order a few when they were released. It took a while because the website kept crashing from the high number of hits. Luckily I was able to get most of the colours I wanted to try. They will be restocked in August.

The first one I'll be showing you is Bumble, a dark pink. 

These Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks are so easy to apply and dry quickly. This swatch features one smooth coat. This photo was in natural sunlight.

This next photo was taken indoors.

I'm in love with this lipstick! I've been wearing it all day and have eaten and drank several times and the lipstick has held up to the test. Easy to apply, long lasting and beautiful colours, Colour Pop Ultra Matte lipsticks are top notch. For only $6 each they are well worth it! Visit their website for more info!

LVX Summer 2015 Currant

Hi loves!!

The final shade from LVX's Summer 2015 collection I have to show you is Currant, a dark royal purple.

Currant is dark and mysterious. A beautiful purple!!

I love how rich this colour is!
I used a pretty gold stamp accent to complete the mani. The stamp image is from a stamping plate from Bundle Monster's XL Polynesia collection set 2.

I used Avenal as the base for a floral mani.
I love this design so much that I did it on both hands!

LVX Summer 2015 Paraiso

Hello again!

The next colour I want to show you from LVX's Summer 2015 collection is Paraiso, a beautiful pastel periwinkle blue. LVX polishes can be found at

So easy to apply! I only used 1 coat for the swatch.

This shade of blue is one of my favourites to wear. I really like how it looks on my skin tone. 

I did a gradient with white to create this whimsical mani which reminds me of Cinderella.

As with all LVX polishes, Shiraz was very easy to apply and almost opaque in 1 coat. I used 2 for the swatch.
