End of last year October 2014, I attended the first Beauty Press Spotlight Day Event in Los Angeles.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I came home with wonderful goodies. I already reviewed Mirabella Travel Brush Set (bottom middle), Mirabella Myth Visionary Long Wearing Eyeshadow (middle left), and Cailyn Touch of Sunset Mineral Eyeshadow Powder (middle left). I also got Healthilocks Treatment at Salon Benjamin thanks to Healthilocks.
Cailyn Cosmetics showcased three sets of overall look. They gave me a goody bag full of Touch of Sunset.

For some reason, I'm loving the glossy liquid that dries matte. So for that reason, I knew I had to play with this baby.
L'Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Nude 2 on the eyes.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it smells like vanilla. I give this a big plus. Most matte lip creams I have tried smell chemical-like, but they're not noticeable unless I sniff it with my nose. This one is a little bit noticeable while applying on the lips, but not to the point it's over bearing. Secondly, it goes on liquid-y and dries matte. It's extremely smooth and doesn't tug on the lips. It's also opaque. One thing I do recommend is applying it thinly. If you apply too thick, it takes a long time to dry or at least from my experience. Once it dries, it feels like you're not wearing anything on the lips. That's why I'm so into these products. It's not sticky, glossy, and so on. It just feels like natural lips. Of course if you want to add shine, you can add clear gloss. Lastly, it's long lasting and doesn't come off until you eat/drink. Even with that, most of the color rubs off the center.
