JCat Beauty Swatch and Review POUT-HOLIC Lipsticks

I seem to always love shopping in the Beauty Supply Store monthly just to see what new items are available. I recently visited a BSS in Inglewood, CA and I came across new JCat Beauty Lipsticks. I saw that they were only $3.99 a piece and I immediately grabbed a handful to take home and try. Early this year I attended ISSELB 2015 and was able to get my hands on a few more.

I was impressed with the pigmentation on them on sight and after playing around with them I was impressed again. It wasn't until I sat down to do a swatch video that I noticed the names of the Pout-Holic Lipsticks. They are too cute and they used hashtags:

#Yolo: You Live Only Once (Yeah the name is a little out of order) - A pastel lime color.
#TBT: Throw Back Thursday - A pastel lavender lilac color.
#WCM: Woman Crush Wed - A creamy yellow color.
#MCM: Man Candy Mon - A rich deep grey that can appear pale blue in flash color.
#OOTD: Outfit Of The Day - A deep royal blue color.
#SMH: Shaking My Head - A shimmery beige tone color.
#L4L: Like For Like - A candy pink coral color.
#F4F: Follow For Follow - An opaque coral color.
#CTFU: Cracking Up - A baby teal pastel color.
#LOVE: Love - A creamy rich purple color.
#iCAN: I Can - A rich pink borderline fuchsia color.
#OH: Over Head - An intense orange color.
#RATEDR: Rated R - A pure white color.
#2SIZESUP: 2 Sizes Up - A black color.

(Arm swatches to come)

I don't have every color but I do have a lot. Check out my video swatching the lipsticks that I have and you can see how they fare on my Beige/Tan tone skin (I was a MAC NC35 in this video, I am normally an NC40).


All in all the lipsticks are affordable, you can find them on the ground or order online HERE.

The pigmentation on them are 8 out of 10. They will require reapplying after a few hours but last a decent amount of time. They come in a wide rang of colors. There is a shimmery one in the collection but most of them are opaque. The texture is pretty creamy on the opaque ones and not sticky. I do feel that these lipstick may require a liner if you wish to wear them a good 12 hours without bleeding.

All in all, I would buy these again and I do believe they are MUA starter kit ready. Any student or beauty enthusiast would be happy having these in their collection.

Hope this information helps.

Luv U,

My 1st Shipment from ScentBird

Scentbird is a monthly subscription service where you can pick out your own 30 day supply of perfume to try.

When I first heard of it I was thinking that this stuff can't possibly be authentic. I read all of the information on the website and I just didn't really believe. I went ahead and got my package and immediately I was impressed. The tube that the fragrance comes in was so cute, the size was a great luxury size container and the scent I picked was perfect for me.

My first pick was the Lancome La Vie Est Belle. I wanted something sweet and sassy like my beloved Pink Sugar. I get lots of compliments when I wear Pink Sugar but I wanted to change things up a bit. So when I got my La Vie Est Belle the fragrance was pretty sweet but not as sweet as Pink Sugar, it had a smooth creamy scent mixed in. I immediately fell in love with it. I checked around at Sephora to see how much the full size costs and it's like $80, WOW. I was able to get the authentic luxury sample for just $15.... get out of here.

Check out my video on my 1st box.

Since getting my 1st box I went ahead and picked out the fragrances I wanted for the entire year of 2015. You don't have to get a random fragrance but you can try everything you ever wanted to try each month. Since I picked what I wanted for the year I will sit back and just wait for them to come each month, I wont peak and I don't really remember what I selected because most of them I haven't heard of before.

I am super excited to try something new each month. Kind of a way for me to slightly flirt and see which scent gets me the most compliments from men, LOL.

You can sign up for Scent Bird here, or just play around with the website because they will give you suggestions after you have taken a quick survey.

Don't forget to use a coupon code to save on your 1st months subscription: SCENT25

Love U
