Swatch Party Friday! |GrandeLips HydraPlump Liquid Lipstick

Hey, it’s payday, and you’re looking to treat yourself after a long week of not flipping every document on your work desk and throwing the computer out of the window. Of course, that treat is going to be makeup (what else would it be), but what do you choose?

Swatch Party Fridays are here to save the day! After watching ThatGirlShaeXO perform dozens (if not hundreds) of live swatches on her face it inspired me to do the same all in the name of helping you find that next holy grail item.

Every week I’ll swatch a product on my arm and respective application site (minus glitters because, at the end of the day, I love myself too much to do that to my face). I hope this growing swatch catalog of my own personal collection will help you decide if it’s meant to have a home in your check out basket.

After all, what better way to celebrate the weekend than with makeup? I’ll wait…

Grande Cosmetics

Fall is in the air and I couldn’t resist talking about these plumping lipsticks in sweater weather shades. These semi-matte liquid lipsticks retail for around $25 USD on the brand website.

I have to admit, these lippies have one of the most unique formulas I’ve ever tried. The best way I can describe the feeling is that it’s like putting a full coverage foundation on your lips… and not in a bad way! They’re creamy and have a nice slip to them that doesn’t feel as though it might migrate across your face. However, HUGE disclaimer - if you don’t like plumping products due to the tingle, this is not for you. They have the tell-tale plump burn that I personally enjoy but may not be comfortable for everyone.
