Amphigory Cosmetics Review

Hello, my loves!. How was your weekend?. Mine was full of craziness, lots going on, but it was great!. I am SUPER excited about this review, because this is an Indie brand that I just found out about. Today I will be reviewing 6 items that they make and sell, but I FULLY plan on getting some other things to review for you lovelies :).

Amphigory Cosmetics is a small company in Lafayette, IN. Comprised of two people, Zevaluz and Pazuzu, husband and wife. They carry a variety of items!. From Cosmetics, Incense, Oils, Wigs, Hair Color, and Jewelry for ALL your beauty needs, and I LOVE that!.

Firstly is the Eye and Lip Primer I love that you can use this on both lips and eyes, so convenient. This gives you an even pale-skin-tone base color, which is especially useful for bright or dramatic eye / lip colors. Safe for eye and lip area. Be sure to use separate applicators for eye or lip area and no double dipping.   I used this product under every lip products and eyeshadow I tested for this review. I think that a primer (some) are life saviors when it comes to the application, wear time, and the color payoff is generally much better off as well. You get 3 grams in a pot, with a screw top lid for 10.70. This amount should last you awhile!. My eyelids are not especially oily, nor dry, just “normal” so I cant speak for those who have excessive oily eyelids.

I really love their Metallic high shimmer LL Cream lipstain I have 2 shades. The first is  EMBER. A beautiful, beautiful Orange, with Gold flecks of shimmer.

If you have yellow undertones to your complexion, this shade will be dynamite on you!. It is creamy, with a very slight minty scent that I find refreshing. This wore on my lips for about 6 hours. It wore off wonderfully ,with no patchiness what so ever. After the initial “shine” went away I was still left with an orange stain that did not look dry, unless of course, your lips are dry, then I would recommend that you exfoliate first. The selection of colors are amazing, I really love them all. There are 13 colors as of today to choose from and retail for, 10.50.

This next color is called, Emerald City  and as you may know green is my most loved color to use in makeup!.

I love this one just as much as the Ember shade. This also retails for 10.50.

The next Item is one of her single eyeshadows, which are called, Bold Effect eyeshadow  I have the shade, Habitat . This shadow is so buttery, not lacking in pigmentation at all!. I need every color (eventually). They come in 11 shades, as of today. You get a whopping 3Grams for 8.50!. Also, you will find a selection of Glitter Shadows, 9 total for now.

The next two items I will be reviewing are the Matte lipsticks The first shade is, Fireside. A gorgeous Blood Red that took me by surprise!. There are 16 Shades to choose from, you get 4 Grams of product for $10.00. Both of the shades that I have are NON-DRYING I was so impressed!. They glide on smoothly, and wear off in about 6 hours, but in a nice, even way that I look for in a Matte formula that is really hard to come by. They have a very slight sweet smell, just the right amount in my book. Also as an added bonus, the tops of the lids are clear!. I love that touch!. Just make sure you store them away from direct sunlight, you don’t want to ruin that wonderful lipstick!.

The Black shade, in Black Widow, took me by surprise the most. I  have never worn a black lipstick in my life, but knew I had to have it!. It’s just so darn creamy and pigmented!. I highly recommend that you use some sort of lip liner or primer, like the one I mentioned above as a base, for the best wear time and to prevent feathering. Wear time is going to vary, depending on what you will be doing, just the same as others. I just love the formulation, and that’s what makes me want more!. I am sorry for the contrasting swatch, my camera just could not get focused correctly for whatever reason. I assure you this is a very intensely pigment-packed black, there is no question about that!.

I hope you have found this helpful and exciting if you’ve never heard of this brand before!. I thrive on supporting, and spreading the word on small Indie Brands that I feel deserve the attention. I am happy to share this with you!. Until next time, take care of one another and come back to see me.

Remember- I also post on Instagram, my name is the same, Amberloveseyes12.

My Lipstick Collection

Hello my Dear Readers!,

I hope you are all having a good day. When I say (collection) I mean that lightly but it is titled as such because that’s really what this is. I have 15 Lipsticks, 1 Lipstick primer, and 1 Lip liner.

First I will tell you about the Lip primer. It is from ColourPop Cosmetics which you can find HERE for 5.00.

It is clear in color, and has a very nice sweet smell that i adore. Here is what ColourPop says about their wonderful product,”Our Lippie Primer enhances the wear of any lip product and keeps your lips looking and feeling healthy!.Our primer contains itty bitty spherical beads that fill in fine lines making lips instantly smooth and plump! It also contains mango, avocado and shea butter for moisture and Vitamin E, which soothes your lips. I think this product is great!.

Next I will share the Lip liner I have which is from Stargazer Cosmetics which you can find HERE

IMG_3266[1] IMG_3265[1]I wear Red lipstick a lot  I think a true red or an orange-red looks best on my pale, but with warm undertones. For 2.50 this is a great lip liner that does exactly what it should!.

Back to ColourPop This lipstick is one(RAW); I was not sure about wearing but I really just had to have it, it don’t flatter me too well, but when i mix it with a darker blue liquid lipstick,which i will get to later it looks better on me. HERE is Raw’s page and costs 5.00 This has a Satin finish and wears for at least 5 hours on me.

IMG_3243[1] IMG_3242[1]

Sleek Cosmetics, their Pout Paints are so good you guys I love them!, they wear for at least 6 hours and leave a slight stain behind. They are 7.49. This first color is Peek-A-Bloo so cute right?. Which you can purchase Here This is the blue I mix with the above Lippie (RAW) to make it look better on me.

IMG_3248[1]IMG_3247[1]The next Pout Paint is called Lava, same price, wears beautifully too.

IMG_3246[1] IMG_3245[1]The next brand is Jcat Beauty which I am new to this brand, but so happy that I heard about them on Instagram!. The lip products I am showing you are called Wonder Lip Paints and the two that I have are amazing!. They wear for hours just like the Pout Paints, and they are at a great price as well at 4.99!!!!. This first color is 2nd Impossible thing and you can get it Here

IMG_3236[1] IMG_3235[1]

The second Wonder Lip Paint I own is called Pishslaver and you can get that Here

IMG_3240[1] IMG_3239[1]Stargazer Cosmetics holds a special place in my heart. I have, and love so so so many products from their wonderfully priced items that do not skimp on the quality. The first Lipstick I am showing is their UV Neon lipstick in Violet you can get it Here for 3.50!! I was floored at how long the color stayed vibrant on me, like 5 hours, and truly creamy as well.

IMG_3263[1] IMG_3264[1]2nd color is UV Neon in Pink which you can get Here Just as creamy, just as long-lasting as well.

IMG_3262[1] IMG_3261[1]

ELF Cosmetics, I love many things from this affordable brand. Their moisturizing Lipsticks are super creamy, smell great. The downfall to these are that they are so creamy that I find that you really need to wear a lip primer/liner under so they will not feather out. The first color is Coral cutie and you can get it Here

IMG_3219[1]

2nd is Flirty and Fabulous found Here

IMG_3225[1]

3rd is Velvet Rope found Here

IMG_3226[1]

NYC Cosmetics (AKA) New York Color is another famously inexpressive line found at your local Walmart or, CVS. This brand is hit and miss for me, you either REALLY like a product or REALLY dislike a product. Their lipsticks I have had wonderful luck with and I only have 1!!!!!. Its Their Expert Last line color is Traffic Jam and they only cost 1.99 at my Walmart where I live. Very pigmented, creamy and lasts for at least 4 hours, no lip liner needed, this does not feather on me.

IMG_3230[1]

This Beauty here is technically called a Lip Lacquer but, it wears like a lip gloss, wear for a couple of hours but oh so very pretty!, just look at that peachy-goldness!. The Hard Candy Lippie in 7-digits in all her beauty. Sadly Hard Candy does not have an online store, and I am sorry I cannot locate it on Walmart’s webpage, but,I bet you have a Walmart near by to go and get this! (Hard Candy is a brand ONLY found at Walmart).

IMG_3260[1] IMG_3257[1]

Cover girl Lip Lava Lip gloss in the shade Muava Lava is such a pretty deep red, a color that i normally would not wear but the formula and color makes me use it. Not at all sticky, rich color payoff in an easy swipe, no smell, and wear very well for a gloss, 3 hours on me. You can purchase this Here for 5.69.

IMG_3249[1]IMG_3251[1]

Rimmel London Show off Lip Lacquer in Luna. I have only had this for 1 month and I swear the color changed on me, not from going bad, it smells and looks fine but at first it was a pure peach, now its more orange, either way I love the color and formula, it smells nice, and wears for 4 hours on me. You can buy this online Here

IMG_3254[1]IMG_3253[1]

And my very last Lipstick is none other than Wet -n- Wild’s Just Peachy. I adore this color, and they just re-formulated their lipsticks and made them non-drying, like they were before (on me at least). You can purchase this gem Here
