If you do a search on this site, you’ll find that I am a huge fan of Beauty Junkees.  While I’ve been a little out of sorts lately, there is one thing for sure… I’m loving the new goodies that Beauty Junkees has rolled out over the last few months.  Since May I’ve been testing out some new finds and I’m very excited to share them with you.  If you haven’t tried anything from Beauty Junkees yet, seriously – what are you waiting for?

Beauty Junkees collection of goodies really has evolved over the last year and I’m always excited to share with all of you what I’ve had the opportunity to try.  This post may be a long one because I have a lot to share, so be prepared for that.  It’s picture heavy – but hey, we all love a little makeup and eye candy, right?  Let’s get into it.

Let’s start off with Beauty Junkees brand new Matte Liquid Lipsticks.  They retail for $14.97 each and are very different from others on the market.  They are water resistant so these make the perfect selection for hitting the beach without sacrificing color on your lips.  They’ll last you all day.  They are lightweight and feel really comfortable on the lips.  They go on smooth, dry fast and are non-sticky.  I love that they offer 3x the pigment than other liquid lipsticks currently available and offer a strain that feels good on.  Made in the USA and paraben-free, gluten-free and of course – cruelty-free.

The shades I have swatched for you above are (left to right):  Soul Mate, Metallic Sorbet and Dinner Party.

These liquid lippies are available in six gorgeous colors – Amaretto, Caramel Latte, Dinner Party, Metallic Sorbet, Soul Mate and Vampirette.  There’s a color for anyone and a small but perfect range of shades for most if not all skin tones.

These lippies come in pretty fun frosted packaging and have easy to use doe foot applicators.  The application is a breeze and I didn’t notice any streaking or smudges once it set on the lips.  I like that you can top these with a gloss if you want a shiny look or wear on its own.  These lippies are quite long lasting and overall, considering the price point and how nice they feel on, I’m pretty impressed.

Lip gloss sets and a great Vitamin E lippy are also on the list of lusts from Beauty Junkees new roll out.  Let’s start with the Vitamin E Moisture Stick since it literally has been a favorite thing for me to use lately.  Perfect for dry and chapped lips, this lip balm (retailing for $10.00) has been my go-to.  Made with Vitamin E to help soothe and heal the lips and provide you with relief from minor sunburns while protecting the lips so you can enjoy fun in the sun.  With long term use, the Vitamin E helps to block free radicals from damaging the skin cells and leaves your lips hydrated and moisturized.  Paraben Free, Gluten Free, and Cruelty-Free as well as made in the USA.  While this lip balm is in simplistic packaging, I think you’ll find that it will literally be a favorite once your lips feel it.  No funky tastes or feel… just soft smooth lips.  This has also been a favorite for me to use on top of any of my drying matte lipsticks to help rehydrate.

Because these are minis, they are travel and purse friendly, but there is still a lot of product that you can get out of these beauties.

The mini lip glosses also come in a 3pc. set.  Mint Lip Gloss Sets are available in two different selections – Kissable and Loveable.  I got the Loveable collection.  I’m not a big gloss fan, if you have been around here a while, you know this about me.  But I love a gloss that is perfect on the go, hydrating and not sticky.  Well, these definitely do all of those for me.  Retailing for $14.97, you get a 3 piece set that includes:  Mint Sugar Glaze (matte finish) which goes on clear with a slight hint of peach, Mint Blossom (matte finish) has a mauve plum tint and Mint Charming (shimmer finish) that has a rose mauve pink tint.  They are sheer glosses that go on smooth and are non-stick.  These have been perfect for me to wear alone or to top my favorite matte lippy.

Beauty Junkees also released Eye Shadow Quads that includes four single shadows in magnetic refill pans.  Each pan is 26mm (the perfect size to fill your makeup kit) and while they do not currently come in a quad, they are ready to be placed in a magnetic palette of your choice.  (You can check out the one that Beauty Junkees offers here)

This particular collection of shades is called:  From The Stars Metallic Collection Eye Shadow Quad

The colors you see swatches above (left to right) are:  Star Gazing, Star Bright, Constellation, and Star Field.

These gorgeous metallic shades are some of my favorites from Beauty Junkees and I love how buttery and pigmented these shadows are.  If you are looking to try some gorgeous neutral shades from the brand, I definitely suggest checking these out.

The Totally 80’s Collection Eye Shadow Quad offers fun and bold shades that are perfect for the rocker in your or for summer eye looks.  This collection includes 4 single eye shadow pans in Break Dancing (Matte), Leg Warmers (Pearlized), Totally Awesome (Matte) and That’s So Rad (Matte Pearl).

Swatched above from left to right:  Break Dancing, That’s So Rad, Leg Warmers, Totally Awesome.  These particular shadows apply nicely on the eyes and are beautiful and bold over a good sticky base.  I apologize for how soft the swatches look on my arm.  Because I’m a little darker skin and I swatch without primer, the colors did not show up as well.  But, they are quite pretty on the eyes for sure.

Each Quad retails for $19.97.

Now, let’s talk Blush and Highlight Duo, shall we?  I’ve added these gorgeous beauties to my collection of blushes and highlights from Beauty Junkees (which you can see) but I wanted to let you know that if you purchased the Matte Blush and lightly frosted highlighter as a duo, that would cost $14.97 – a major steal.

I currently have the Peach Petal Collection (Peach Petal Blush & Pow! Highlighter) and Mauve Mist Collection ( Mauve Mist Blush and Pink Parfait Highlighter)

Peach Petal Collection – Peach Petal Blush & POW! Highlighter.  This is the perfect summer blush and highlighter duo for me and I’ve been getting a ton of use out of these gorgeous beauties.  If you are looking for some color with a hint of shimmer, these would be perfect for you.  I think these shades look especially nice on a warm skin tone.

Mauve Mist Collection is also gorgeous. It includes Mauve Mist Blush and Pink Parfait Highlighter.  I love Mauve Mist blush on me because it works so well with my deeper skin tone, and offers the perfect flush of color.  Pink Parfait is a cool toned highlighter – I tend to use warmer tones or a blend of golds, but it’s still gorgeous on the cheekbones.  It offers a gleam of highlight without looking too “Bam! What?!” when wearing it.  It does have a little more shimmer than POW!  but it’s still gorgeous nonetheless.  If you’re interested in frosted highlighters but you want something that you can build up – you’ll enjoy this one.

Each blush and highlighter offer a great range of color for a lot of skin tones and I love that they are super pigmented.  The highlighters can be a bit dusty and have fall out, so make sure you tap off the excess before applying to the face.  Also – since the highlighters are so pigmented, I highly suggest using a fan brush or light hand when applying.  The blushes while pigmented can be applied with a light hand for a flush of color to the cheeks or with a little more pressure for a bolder look.

Like I’ve mentioned before, it’s no secret that Beauty Junkees is a brand I truly love.  Their brushes are my go-to’s and I haven’t bought any high-end brushes since.  I love the overall quality of their cosmetic line and I absolutely enjoy seeing a small, woman run business expand their products to include some of my favorite tools and makeup items.  If I had to choose one favorite item to try, it would be near to impossible.  I hope that providing you with a few of the ones I’ve been working and playing with the last several months will help.  Oh – let’s not forget about their sponges too… I won’t buy another expensive beauty blender again thanks to Beauty Junkees.

So, how about you?  Do you have any of Beauty Junkees products on your radar to try?  I definitely suggest heading on over to their website (listed above) to check out what they have to offer.  There are many items I have tried from the brand that I can’t stop raving about and I highly suggest checking them out.  If you’re interested in something but need a little advice, feel free to comment or message me and we can discuss personally.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

A few days ago I shared a review on my YouTube channel on the Bdellium Tools Auto Lip Crayons and I figured, why neglect the blog – I should post a review here too.  I was sent the Bdellium Tools Auto Lip Crayons as a part of Octoly – a site that I’ve been a part of but never really purchased or got products from over the years.  This was the first product I got from my Free Store and I’m glad I was able to try it – since I don’t often use much from Bdellium Tools and I didn’t know they even had makeup or cosmetics as a part of their line.

I received two colors – Pink Cadillac (a gorgeous rose hued bright fuchsia pink) and Kadooment Orange (an orange with red undertones – almost coral in shade).  Each lip crayon retails for $10.00 and Bdellium Tools offers a total of 7 shades on their website.  I would love to try the nude shades they have available because these are so great for travel or sticking in the purse for on the go.

Each lip color is soft and creamy and glide on very easily on the lips.  They are very pigmented and you get – One swipe and done, high pigment and color.  They have a matte like texture but do not leave my lips dry which is awesome and my lips feel very moisturized while wearing the lip colors.  These are not kiss proof, but they do last for quite a while if you are not eating, drinking or kissing.  I love that each lip crayon is retractable, making it really easy to use.

Each lip color is paraben and perfume free.  The lip crayons do not contain beeswax or carmine and include ingredients like shea butter to help hydrate the lips.  Each pencil has a net weight of 0.05 oz / 1.5g so you get a lot of product for a reasonable price point.  I did notice that the colors I got can settle into the lines of my lips – even if they are not drying.  I think a lot of it has to do with the color and creamy feel of the product.  While it does last on the lips, it will kiss off, rub off and will not set like a traditional matte lipstick – but they are very comfortable to wear.

With the cost of drugstore makeup increasing now a days, it’s nice to see a company like Bdellium Tools offer their lip products at reasonable costs.  Let’s face it, $10.00 now a days for a lip crayon is not that bad considering there are so many on the market that are priced way more.  I’m actually impressed with the product, though I do wish it had a little more staying power on my lips – especially since I drink water consistently during the day.  I would love to try out their nude lippies and see how they match up to these that I have tried already.  I’ll definitely be checking these out.  I would love to see what other colors Bdellium Tools releases in the future.
Have you tried these lippies before or anything from Bdellium Tools?  If so, comment below and let me know.  Don’t forget to stop by my video review and show it some love!
