The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Sweet Talker is definitely one of my new favorite lip colors. Here’s a look I created with Sweet Talker and Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow in Iridescent Purple.
Keep reading for more photos and to find out what products I used for this look!
Receiving raves galore in the beauty blogging world, I made it a determined goal to get my hands on and try the brand new Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick colors. These lippies are full-coverage, rich with pigmentation, and quite unlike any other long-wearing lip color I have tried in the past.
After carefully perusing the twenty available colors on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website, Pinterest, and various blogs, I ended up with Sweet Talker, a vibrant pink.
I’ve been wearing a loving Sweet Talker quite frequently and totally understand why these unique lip products get so much love.
In fact, I’ve come up with three reasons to love the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks.
Reason 1: It’s super lightweight. You really cannot tell you have anything on your lips! I suspect this has something to do with Beeswax, which is one of the main ingredients.
Reason 2: It’s long-wearing. You can chat, chew, sip, and basically live your life and not even realize that not only is this lip product on, it still looks great hours after application. That’s an accomplishment!
Reason 3: It’s smooth sailing. Your lips will not become a flaky, messy disaster and given my experiences with long-wearing lip colors in the past, that’s an accomplishment!
The only problem I had with Sweet Talker is that it wasn’t one-stop shopping: I had to layer the lipstick a bit to make sure it was completely even on my lips.
When I placed my order for the liquid lipstick, I also picked up a pan of the individual eyeshadow in Iridescent Purple so I would qualify for free shipping.
It’s a really pretty mid-tone purple which I’d describe as similar but deeper in color to MAC’s Beautiful Iris.
It’s a tad bit on the powdery side, but the full loveliness of this color emerges when placed on top of a primer.
My Final Thoughts: Long-wearing and smooth sailing, the Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Sweet Talker is a vibrant pink that’s definitely going to be put into heavy usage in my lip color rotation. I’ll be picking up more of these lovely lippies, for sure!

I looked up some Irish sayings and thought this was a lovely one to pass along:
May there always be work for your hands to do, May your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane, May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you, And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
Yesterday I featured the Wet n Wild Vegan Culture palette, which is part of the limited edition Silverlake collection. It’s a pretty set of green, aqua, silver, and shimmery goodness with pretty great pigmentation!
Wet n Wild’s limited edition palettes are always something I look forward to spotting in stores, but let’s be honest – sometimes the palettes are duds! Luckily, that’s not the case with Vegan Culture, which is part of the new Wet n Wild Silverlake collection of 5 different eyeshadow palettes.
Inspired by the section of Los Angeles it’s named after, the Silverlake collection offers glittery, shimmery, bohemian-inspired palettes. I chose Vegan Culture, which offers a mix of six silver, aqua, and turquoise eyeshadows. For $4, it’s a great value.
So, I tried something new with my swatching technique that didn’t quite turn out the way I had hoped! Beauty blogger realness, y’all!
I used tiny bits of nail tape on my hand and next time I’ll know to use different width of tape that can be more easily controlled.
The good news is that Vegan Culture lives up to Wet n Wild’s reputation of highly pigmented eyeshadows. It’s a beautiful palette that I’ll incorporate into future makeup looks for sure.
I do adore shimmery green and aqua eyeshadows. This is just my kind of palette!
Even though I live somewhat in the area, I haven’t spent a lot of time in Silverlake. Years ago I drove by at night and saw the silver lake illuminated by moonlight, and it was quite the pretty sight!
My Final Thoughts: Catch the limited edition Wet n Wild Silverlake Collection while you can! Vegan Culture is a pretty palette in this set of shadows with pastel mermaid-inspired eyeshadows that are great to wear in Spring and Summer.
Availability: Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid and other stores that sell Wet n Wild products.
Some had asked what makeup I was wearing in my Office Supply Beauty Tutorial earlier this week, and I’m glad to share! It features Sugarpill Goldilux, which is THE gold pigment of all gold pigments. Seriously, it’s a must have!
Today I’ve compiled a list of 4 beauty tools to score for cheap on eBay.
One of my favorite places to pick up beauty tools and doodads is none other than eBay. The prices cannot be beat, you can order large amounts, and the shipping time is reasonable even though many products come from overseas. These are tools that I use as a makeup lover and beauty blogger, and are also great for makeup artists looking to stock their makeup kits. For each category I’ve enclosed links for stores that I’m not affiliated with in any way.
These plastic wheels are SO, SO, SO useful it’s not even funny. They’re essential for nail blog posts, as you can see in my recent review of Laqa & Co. Nail wheels are also great to have if you’re looking for a good way to organize your nail polish collection and remember what your polishes look like. I prefer clear to white nail wheels because they give a more true representation of the polish color.
If you’re a makeup artist, you need to include disposable spoolies in your kit! As a makeup artist, these are essentials and it’s so great that they’re disposable, which is great sanitation. They’ll also handy for non-pros – use them to groom your brows and separate your lashes.
You can get boxes of falsies for extremely low prices, but you get what you pay for! Instead of a band they’ll come with strings and that can be a bit hard to manipulate and apply. Unless you’re super adventurous, I’d avoid!
This week I’ve shared my sources for beauty products from the office supply store to eBay. Beauty is everywhere, right?! Do you have any unusual sources of beauty products?
