Anastasia…a Friend to Us All

LIPSTICKKKKKK. I am sure that I get repetitive in saying this, but I love lipstick like Kel loves orange soda. I do. I do. I dooooooooo. So earlier this month when Anastasia, I speak as if I know her personally, launched her lip palette I was all over it. I watched swatched videos, drooled over beauty influencers snapchats, and stalked her website. I knew that the pigmentation was gonna be everythinggggggg because Anastasia does not do anything half steppin’. I did what any addict would do, I convinced myself I needed it for my “clients” and not just myself. It was a business decision…

I placed the order on her website as soon as it was available. Tracked the package like a hound on a fox. And when I got it, I opened it and slathered my lips with the first color my eye was drawn to. Pigmentation. CHECK. Opacity. CHECK. Comfortability. CHECK.

The palette is called Vol. 1, so I imagine that there is going to be more to come. And I can’t wait. It includes an array of comfortable matte colors. 18 to be exact. 5 of them are primary colors for mixing. The others are purple, pink, and a nude for every skin color. The palette comes with a mixing palette and a brush with a spatula on the other end. It retails for 48 dollars.

I did a wear test of the red at work. I ate, drank, and talked too much.

The first two are just as I applied it once I got ready for work. The third is even after I ate lunch. Still comfortable and still pigmented. The last one is the last hour of work. About 9 hours after I put it on. AND I didn’t reapply because I was not about to carry that palette with me all day. Overall, I was impressed by the lipstick and I cannot wait to mix colors in the palette. In Alissa Ashley’s video she made a grey green and I wan’t to replicate that. I just have to find the perfect eye look to match that slay with.

Thanks for reading! Comment down below if you know of any other lip palettes that I should try. Until next time!

      Thanks! I need to dig down in my creative beauty brain to think of some colors I want to create. Or maybe I will just go in without a plan. We will see!

        I really wanna play around with the palette, but I don’t want to waste too much of the product. I act like I’m scared of the palette lol.
