From L to R: RoRo, Malrah, Merlin
First of all I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Daval Beauty for sending me these gorgeous lippies and for making me one of their lip models.
Daval Beauty is a Cruelty-Free (but not vegan) company that sells liquid lipsticks as well as traditional bullet lipsticks. They are handmade in Nova Soctia and ship from Halifax Canada. Their lipsticks are Talc Free, Paraben Free, Cruelty Free, & Vegetarian but not Vegan because they do contain beeswax. I believe these retail between $10-$13 depending on which item you purchase.
Daval Beauty's liquid lipsticks have become some of my all time favorites! They are very pigmented and smooth. And the doe foot applicator on these really makes it easy to apply them and shape your lips. They dry down to a completely matte finish but they are not a drying matte at all...I find them to be very hydrating actually! I feel like some dry down to a transfer proof (definitely not smudge proof) finish and some don't. I had the shade RoRo on today and it was transfer proof but the shade Malrah definitely transfers a little more so I think it just depends on the shade.
These liquid lipsticks are long wearing as well! I ate Subway with them on and they didn't really budge. I noticed a little fading in the inner corner of my lip but nothing crazy at all!
Another thing I love about Daval is they always send personalized notes in their packages. I just absolutely love it when companies send you notes in the package because it feels like they actually care about their customers.
I am seriously obsessed with Daval Beauty's liquid lipsticks and I recommend these to EVERYONE looking for high quality liquid lippies that are inexpensive!
The left is the shade "Unicorn Holographic" and the right is the shade "Unicorn Magik"
The top is all of the shades from Unicorn Holographic swirled together and the bottom is Unicorn Magik
Here is each individual shade from Unicorn Holographic
Lubov Cosmetics is a cruelty-free indie brand on Etsy. Right now I believe all they have is highlighters. I am seriously in love with Lubov Cosmetics. Their highlighters have become some of my all time favorites. They are so smooth and buttery and they are so freaking pigmented! I've been using Unicorn Holographic a lot lately and it gives me such an amazing highlight. These definitely are not for a subtle glow...they're not messing around. These are really going to give you that blinding highlight that you can see from outer space (I love me a blinding highlight lol)
First up is "Unicorn Holographic". This shade has a mix of different colors...there is a white, a baby blue, a pink, and a yellow gold shade. You can use the shades individually or you can swirl them together for a gorgeous Holographic shade. (It looks very green in the swatch but it isn't in real life) I tend to use the white alone, or the white and the pink mixed. Anyway you wear it this is just such an amazing product and I think a lot of people would be able to wear this!
Next is the shade "Unicorn Magik"
I unfortunately cannot use this as a highlight because it is too dark for my skin tone so I can't tell you how it is as a highlight but I do use this as an eyeshadow and it is gorgeous! I'm not kidding when I say these are like metallic. That sounds very scary for a highlight but I promise it looks amazing on the skin! I am kind of a ghostly pale person so finding a purple highlight that doesn't look ashy on me is pretty hard but I do love using this on my eyes for a purple eye or even as a pop of color in my inner corner!
I definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a blinding highlight or if you're just looking for a metallic eyeshadow! They are very versatile and I've even used them on my lips. I just cannot tell you how much I love them!!
Once again, thank you so much to Channah from Lubov Cosmetics for sending me these gorgeous highlights!
*I did use other things to make this shade metallic but I used their Satin Lip in Mystic
This is their liquid matte lip in the shade Berryville
First off I just want to say a huge thank you to Nine Three Beauty for sending me these beautiful liquid lipsticks (they also sent me their satin lip in Kyndall but I don't have a swatch of that one yet)
The first one I'll talk about is the liquid matte in the shade Berryville
This shade is a very beautiful Berry color. It almost reminds me of kind of a Kylie Jenner color with a little more of a berry kind of pink tone. This does take a bit to dry down completely but it does dry down to a transfer proof (not smudge proof) matte finish. It is very opaque and you only need one swipe to get full coverage. I didn't really think this liquid lip was drying either...I find it to be pretty hydrating and it didn't crack or crumble off which is always nice. Potato chips definitely destroyed it and it was all over my face but chips destroy any lipstick because of the oils. Anything oily will pretty much destroy any lipstick.
Overall I think this is a great formula and I absolutely love this shade as well!
The next shade I will talk about is Mystic.
Mystic is a very dark, metallic, blackened navy blue. I absolutely love this shade and it looks amazing in the tube but I find this one to be very patchy because of how dark it is. You definitely have to put on 2-3 layers for you to get full coverage but once you build it up, it is gorgeous! It is certainly not for the faint of heart but, if you're bold like me, you will love this shade.
I do feel like this is more of a glossy finish than a satin and it will wear off after you eat and is not transfer proof (satin liquid lips usually aren't transfer proof)
Their Satin lips are definitely not drying at all and again, are very hydrating!
Both of these formulas are great and I will definitely be purchasing some more of Nine Three Beauty's products!
