Binxcat's Musing:  Liv It Up is a creamy, opaque moisturizing lipstick in a slightly warm to neutral pink shade.  It has exceptional wear for a non matte lipstick.  On me, it lasted half a day with no touch ups.  I had no issues with bleeding or feathering without a liner.

Binxcat's Musing:  This shade is slightly thinner than the other shades I tested.  It is a beautiful deep, rich plum with a slight bit of shimmer.  It is non sticky.  Non streaky application requires more than one coat or application over a lip liner.

Binxcat's Musing:  (Swatched with no primer)  All swatches represent 2 passes.  The mattes are a little weak on pigment.  The two metallics on the top row struggled as the base and shimmer were not especially cohesive.  The second row last shade (topaz) was poor.  I have not tested these for wear - they may work better on application over primer.  I will come back and update my thoughts after I have test worn them over the course of a full day.

Binxcat's Musing:  I wanted to get this posted for you while it was still available - it's 50% off here in the US at Nordstrom.  The formula is a bit thin but it performs nicely (and does dry down).  It's a nice duo liner with a metallic and glitter side so you can amp up your eye look.  Perfect for holidays.

Description:

Who it's for: All skin types.

CRUELTY FREE
PARABEN FREE

Binxcat's Musing:  While the quality of this product is great, i was a bit disappointed.  On me, this shade is more of a blackened blue (mostly black) with shimmer.  It will pull somewhat more purple over naturally pigmented lips versus arm swatching.
