Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner (Natural) Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Lip Liner in Natural from Red Apple Lipstick that came in my February Petit Vour subscription box. [info in italics taken from Petit Vour]

Petit Vour February 2018

WHAT IT IS:
A gluten-free lip liner that is allergen-free. Use under lipstick to define your lips and prevent feathering or fading, or use alone for a matte pout. 

HOW TO USE:
Apply Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner along natural edge of lips and then fill in outline for a solid base. Apply Red Apple Lipstick over top and then blot color gently with a tissue to remove any excess. Voila! Perfectly rouged, stay-all-day lip color!

Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner

The Lip Liners are available in six different shades: Almost Red: brown-based deep red, Barely Pink: natural, warm pink , Blush: orange-based nude rose, Dusty Rose: just that with a hint of mauve, Natural: a little pink, a little brown, the perfect color for a defined pout, and Roseberry: rich rose color with a bold berry base.

I received the shade Natural, and it works with so many lipsticks in my collection! It is a surprisingly smoothly applying lip liner pencil with a matte finish. I’ve worn it alone, as well as with various lipsticks in my collection. It really helps keep lipsticks to stay all day without getting that dried out crumbly feeling.

Here it is swatched next to the Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in the shade Lolita for comparison (Red Apple Lip Liner on top, Kat Von D Lip Liner on the bottom):

Petit Vour Unboxing February 2018

Hello, hello!

My Petit Vour box just arrived, and I thought that I would share my unboxing with you today!

Petit Vour Unboxing February 2018

Just a reminder, the box is $23 USD per box for Canada (it is $18 USD per month for the US, and $25 USD per month for all other countries). I’m using the exchange rate that I paid this month’s box in calculating the overall value – I paid $29.33 CAD for the February box.

Let’s take a look inside!

Petit Vour February 2018

Elate Cosmetics Creme Revealer in shade Porcelain – I was surprised to see a concealer in a perfect shade for me. I can’t wait to test this out over the next couple of days.

Derma E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub – I’ve wanted to try Derma E for a long time, so I’m super happy that I got this sample sized facial scrub! I can’t wait to try this out.

Red Apple Lipstick Lip Liner in shade Natural – I’ve never tried this brand before, so I’m excited as it seems to be a perfect shade for several of the MLBB / nude lipsticks in my collection.

Zabana Essentials Tamanu Calendula Healing Anti-Blemish Face Balm – This face balm sounds great, looking forward to trying this one out.

Petit Vour February 2018

All in all, I think that this month’s box was great! The contents are valued at $52 USD, and using the exchange rate that I paid for this month’s box, that works out to be $66.30 CAD.

Reviews to follow once I’ve had a chance to test everything out.

Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in Lolita Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a little review of one of the new Everlasting Lip Liners from Kat Von D Beauty in the iconic Lolita shade. I was one of the lucky Influensters who received the VoxBox for testing and review purposes.

Description is taken from the Sephora website:

What it is:
A lip liner that combines 24-hour, water-resistant wear and weightless color, in 30 shades matched to Kat Von D’s iconic lipsticks.
Kat Von D Influenster

What it does:
At last, a lip liner in a boundary-breaking spectrum of 30 shades, from classic nudes and reds to fearless bolds you can only expect from Kat Von D. Everlasting Lip Liner lives up to the promise of Kat’s beloved Everlasting Liquid Lipstick with comfortable, long wear and a matte, high-pigment formula.

I find that most lip liners are quite drying on the lips, but this one is surprisingly comfortable and super long wearing. Very highly pigmented – this stuff does not budge until you remove it!

Lolita is described as being a chestnut rose shade. I’ve worn it on its own, as well as combined with some of my fave lipsticks. Here it is swatched with a few from my collection:
