Born Pretty Store

Recently I was fortunate enough to work with the site BornPrettyStore* who sent me a couple of makeup items. I have shopped on Born Pretty in the past, but only for nail art supplies. I didn't realize the site carried makeup, clothes and all kinds of home goods! One of the items I received was a Matte Velvet Waterproof Lipgloss in the shade #14. I am not a huge fan of lipglosses, but this wears a lot more like a liquid lipstick and although it's matte, this particular shade has gold reflects which give it a pretty sheen without being glossy. This does wear a little sticky, so if that is something that you don't like, keep that in mind. The color is so pretty and natural and it wears for a very long time. A tip is to let it wear down naturally, do not apply tons of layers throughout the day as it will become cakey. If you let it wear off with time it will look natural and not goopy at all!



It's got a doe-foot applicator which makes it easy and comfortable to apply


It applies super intense, but it does dry down to a more natural finish. A little goes a very long way!


 The finished product. I love how natural this color is, I could see this being an everyday lip product for me! Sorry for my extreme duck lips!

The best part is this lipgloss (and almost everything on the site!) is super affordable. This lipgloss was only $1.99 and BornPretty offers free shipping worldwide. Just keep in mind it may take some time to get to you. How can you argue with free shipping though? 

BornPretty created a special 10% off for my readers with the code KSPH10. If you decide to buy some products let me know which ones because I already have a wishlist a mile long! 

Again you can find the lipgloss and other fun makeup items here

Have you ever shopped on BornPretty?

*disclaimer: while BornPretty did send me the lip gloss free of charge, I am receiving no other compensation and my thoughts and opinions on all products are my own. If you have further questions, always feel free to email me at thethirtysomethinglife@gmail.com

  8. Colors that nude look terrible on me, but for that price, I am definitely interested in seeing what other shades they have!

    1. I am so hit and miss with the nudes so I definitely understand! They had beautiful berry tones I'm interested in picking up for the Fall. Also, I went ahead and bought that Too Faced Melted Kisses and Sweet Cheeks set...don't worry, I'll be sure to credit you as the culprit when (if?) I do a blog post on it! Hahaha thanks so much for stopping in lovely lady! XO -Kim

  9. Unlike you I'm definitely a lipgloss person and this shade looks lovely :) I'm going straight over to the website to order some stuff because my extensive lipgloss collection costs me almost as much as all the make up you tempt me to buy ( I blame you hehe ;) )

    I saw in a previous comment that you said you've bought some too faced stuff and I'd love to see some reviews of that when you get it !

    Lots of love, Marianne xxx

    1. Aww Marianne you are such a lovely friend! There are so many beautiful lipglosses out there, my lips just don't want to be friends with them! Hahahah, being bloggers I think can get us into trouble as other blogs can always influence our pocketbooks! I will most definitely do a review for you! Thanks for stopping in my gorgeous friend, you are always so sweet! Love and hugs your way! XO -Kim

  14. I've never tried a matt before, do they dry out your lips?

    1. Some of them can be quite drying. I think the key is to try different ones til you find which formula works best for you! This one is definitely one of my favorites that I've tried! Thanks so much for stopping in gorgeous! XO -Kim
