What type of beauty product do you buy the most of (mascaras, concealers, lipsticks etc)? What is the most common makeup faux pas that you see? I can’t stand when girls have beat brows and nothing else. Do you have a “beauty budget” or do you spend freely?
As of late, I’ve been good, but during the holidays I do get crazy. I really try to challenge myself to do something different and play with a new product or something I don’t use very often. If it’s quick and out the door, then a thick cat eye and some nude lips. Is there any celebrity that you get your makeup inspiration from & why that celebrity? She’s a trendsetter and her MUA, Lora Arellano, is everything I wanna be in life! RiRi always has the most bold, but still sexy makeup. Sonjdradeluxe, Lora Arellano, of course, and Amber Dean. Anyone really out of the ordinary who isn’t going to just repeat the same cat eye over and over again.
If you could leave the house with only ONE makeup product, which would it be? My boyfriend’s account was charged $250 after he innocently tried to buy me a lipstick. The worst amongst a million other reasons, of course. Usually, just here and there but once in a while I’ll bulk shop LMAO. What is one beauty tool/brush that you’d recommend to anyone? What is one beauty product that you’d recommend to ANYONE & why? Use it in your crease to seamlessly blend anything. If you had to give up one makeup item for the rest of your life, which would it be? What is your absolute pet peeve when it comes to other people’s makeup? Nose contouring on people who don’t know how to properly do it. I think it’s actually unnecessary, but these girls that do it every day kill me!! Inglot makes this wonderful product called Duraline. Basically not only does it turn your shadows into eyeliners, it also makes your pomades like ABH Dipbrow and gel liner like new! If your gel is dried up, a couple of drops makes a huge difference. It’s saved me soooo much money because I used to chuck gel liners halfway through because they’d get clumpy, but this really changed the game! What’s the best way for future clients to reach you? They can send me a DM on Instagram @allibeaumakeup or send me an email allisondube[email protected] Hey all 🙂 A few days ago, I gave you a look into my MAC lipstick collection. Today, I’m going to give you a look into my Melt lipstick collection. As a lipstick junkie, I never get tired of lipstick BUT I know some people do. No worries though, because I’ll have some other themed “stash” posts coming soon. Anyway, back to Melt :)… I did a review on Melt’s lipsticks last year so if you want to get more of a in depth opinion on these then check that out here. This post is more of a swatch post as all of my other “stash” posts. I will give you a little background on the company though before I jump in.
Melt Cosmetics was started by 2 women in LA, Lora Arellano (pictured above) and Dana Bomar. They’re both makeup artists, Lora has even done makeup for Bad Gyal RiRi :). The company sells lipsticks and eye shadow stacks, for now. Rumor has it that they will be adding more stuff eventually.
Now on to the swatches… On the website, they don’t describe the colors really. In my last post about melt, I had Blow, Bane, By Starlight, and Spacecake. Some of the lipsticks are smidgen creamier than the rest.
