Hi Everyone and Happy Tuesday!
Man, am I sore today! Yesterday Max and I started our 3 week bootcamp class and it was so challenging! My whole body is super sore now!
When I ordered my Urban Decay Smoked Palette I needed 1 more dollar to meet the $50 free shipping. After google-ing some swatches of lipsticks, lipglosses and eyeliners I ended up ordering the Urban Decay LoveChild lipstick. Love Child is described on their website as a light, cool pink and it’s just that. A very wearable, sheer pink.
You can pick this up on Urban Decay’s site right now for $22 and they have a special offer that includes the limited edition lipstick cap for free!

Swatch of Urban Decay Lipstick in Love Child
Several layers for this pigmentation
Honestly, I’m not a fan of the packaging. The cap is pretty fancy but what’s with the sword at the top of the lipstick? It’s fun but it’s also sharp and hurts my fingers when I grip it to pull the lipstick open! And the limited edition cap is even harder to open (had to have Max pull it open for me!). Maybe it’ll get easier after a while?
The pigmentation is very sheer and I had to swipe on multiple layers for the swatch on my hand and my lips. The pink is very wearable and natural for an every day look.
The texture is very smooth and glossy.
The scent is very sweet. It’s described as “creme caramel” but it definitely has that artificial smell to it. It’s really rare that I end up liking the scent on lipsticks so I’m not surprised that I’m not fond of this one either. It doesn’t bother me as much once I have it on but is pretty strong in the tube.
Overall? It’s a fun lipstick to have. The packaging is very unique and I’ve always wanted to try an Urban Decay lipstick. I don’t think I’ll be purchasing any more for a while. I’m pretty happy and loyal to M.A.C as my go-to lipstick supplier, haha. Their lipstick is more wallet-friendly ($14.50 each) and I love the vanilla scent! :)
What lipstick brand is your favorite? Are there certain lipstick scents that you love or hate?
Wishing you a BEAUTYFULL day!
