The Lipstick Chronicles: Beauty Bakerie

Time for the second chapter of the Lipstick Chronicles. If you missed the first one, you can find it here.

I found out about Beauty Bakerie from my sister, @vgnnatalie. They were a new, cult brand at the time that were renowned for producing a long lasting lip product, their Lip Whip. Not only was the product ground breaking for how well it stayed, it came in a wide range of colours which meant everyone could find a shade for them and whatever mood you were in.

I own 3 shades: Take Me For Pomegranate, Gingersnap and Versailles.

Beauty Bakerie are a fully vegan brand and they are completely committed to being cruelty free! Details can be found on this post on their blog.

Here are selfies I’ve taken in Gingersnap and Versailles so you have a better idea of what they look like on.

I haven’t bought a Lip Whip for a while now but I do recommend them. Their staying power is second to none, and arguably much better than the KVD Beauty Everlasting Lipstick.

The colour range is amazing and the price point is appealing to all. I bought mine on ASOS at the time but I don’t think ASOS sell Beauty Bakerie anymore. They also had a nude and a metallic range which looks amazing but I’ve never tried. I don’t think I’ll find an occasion for a metallic lip colour as I’m fairly boring!

The Lipstick Chronicles: Kat Von D Beauty

I had originally planned for this blog post to be 1 long post about my entire lipstick collection. However, as I was drafting it, I realised how much lipstick I really owned and it made for a lengthy post which I wanted to avoid.

So this is the first of The Lipstick Chronicles! Starting with my favoured brand Kat Von D Beauty.

From the Kat Von D Beauty collection, I own both the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and the Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick in various colours. As well as these, I also own various Everlasting Lip Liner in various colours.

What’s great about the range is lipstick and liner colours match directly, but you can also find other colours that will match due to the extensive colour range!

Currently, I own 3 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick colours:

  • Vampira
  • Lolita
  • Santa Sangre

Above are the swatches of the lipsticks and the liners that I use together.

Lolita is my every day colour and it is gorgeous. It’s great for all skin tones and I highly recommend it. The everlasting liquid lipsticks have incredible staying power. When wearing it on a normal work day, it will last the whole day which will include at least 1 cup of coffee, numerous glasses of water, lunch and other snacks throughout the day.

The downside to it’s excellent staying power is that it can be a struggle to take off at the end of the day, so I use The Body Shop Camomile Eye and Lip Make Up Remover which is really great and pulls everything off.

Below are some of the other KVD Beauty lipsticks that I own and occasionally use:

  • Studded Kiss Creme in Cathedral
  • Studded Kiss Creme in Lovecraft
  • Everlasting Glimmer Veil in Dazzle
  • Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Kitten Mini in Ruthless
Limited edition mini shade of the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Ruthless

The Kitten Mini in Ruthless is a gorgeous berry shade (swatched below) which I believe is limited edition so get them while you can!

The above lipsticks are great but I wouldn’t rate them compared to the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. The colours are nice but they don’t last as well. The glimmer veil is great and works on it’s own as well as on top of another colour.

Additional swatches of the above can be found below. I’ve also included a selfie of me wearing the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Sangre, on top of the Everlasting Lip Liner in Outlaw.

I’ve hyperlinked the main products and a few of the individuals where the colour can’t be selected.

Thanks for reading this post. I hope you’ve learnt a bit and found some info that you may or may not have been looking for.
