Product Review: Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick

This week we’re reviewing the new Always on Liquid Lipstick from Smashbox. They launched this product last month and its available everywhere Smashbox is sold. It retails for $24 and has the sleek design you’ve come to expect from all Smashbox products.

Because of the growing popularity of liquid lipsticks in the beauty industry, they’re becoming more accessible in more and more shades and formulations. Here at Bridal Beauty, we have tried out pretty much every liquid lipstick on the market so we were very excited to try Smashbox’s version of a liquid lipstick.

We are happy to say that we were very impressed with this particular formulation! Not only was it super creamy but it maintained its matte finish without becoming over-drying on the lips, it even stayed on through our lunch! Our favorite shade, especially as fall is approaching, is Out Loud, which is a beautiful burnt orange and it looks wonderful on both fair and deep skintones!

We hope you enjoyed taking a closer look at this awesome new liquid lipstick!

Don’t forget to check out our professional makeup artist Jordan Wyandt as she demonstrates the perfect fall look, by using Smashbox’s Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Out Loud.

Product Review: The Power Of Makeup Palette by Nikkie Tutorials

This week we are testing out the brand new palette from Too Faced that was beautifully designed by youtube and instagram sensation, Nikkie Tutorials! For everyone here at Bridal Beauty we’ve been dying waiting for this palette to launch, so when we finally got it in the mail we were ecstatic to try it out

FullSizeRender (1)

Nikkie’s palette comes with 9 gorgeous eyeshadow shades, 2 blushes, a bronzer, highlighter, a glitter pot, a full-sized black liquid liner pen, and a travel sized better than sex mascara. Trust me, people, she hooks you up with this palette. Currently selling for $56 and almost sold out EVERYWHERE, we’d say you definitely get your bang for your buck considering all the extra goodies you get in addition to the palette.

The packaging for this kit is super cute and we love how she showed us her signature style, it really is a little piece of heaven from Nikkie’s world. Everything in the kit is pretty well pigmented, and the foiled shades are to DIE for. This particular palette can go from super natural to ultra glam considering all the shades she provides you with.

We loved getting to play with this kit and our consensus is that you will too!
