Huda Beauty Winter Solstice Mini Lip Strobe Collection



The Winter Solstice Mini Lip Strobe Collection, by Huda Beauty, is ideal for fans of bold and shimmery looks. These iridescent beauties are simply gorgeous! Lauren has worn them on their own and over her favorite lipstick and she was impressed with the performance. They are very flattering!

Don’t let the appearance of the packaging fool you, these cool and luminescent glosses are very pigmented.  You will find that they also pair very well with the Huda Beauty Highlighter Palette (Winter Solstice Palette).

There are four stunning icy colors such as Charmed, Bewitched, Starcrossed, and Hypnotic. This collection is perfect for the ultimate winter lip.  They are easy to apply, the strobes feel comfortable,  and don’t get sticky at all. A single swipe of the gloss is enough to turn any base lip color into incandescent hues and shades.

Wear it alone or on top of your go-to lipstick to see that infinite array of frosty shades. Keep that frosty, festive makeup look all winter long with the help of these semi-sheer glosses.  Get them before these limited-edition metallic glosses are gone. We’ve also listed a few more of our favorites from Huda Beauty that are worth a try!

OC Dream

LASplash Cosmetics + Vicki Gunvalson OC Dream

Colors: Newport Nude & OC Dream

OC Dream

OC Dream

You know we love ourselves some good reality TV, especially when it gets out of the screen to meet real life beauty products. The Real Housewives of Orange County has just released The OC Dream Collection with Vicki Gunvalson, known as “The OG Of The OC”.

This lipstick line, made in collaboration with LaSplash Cosmetics, includes Whoop It Up Lip Gloss and WooHoo Liquid to Matte Lipstick. There are 18 shades in the collection, all made in the USA and cruelty-free.

We tried a couple of shades of this luxurious cosmetic line in the colors OC Dream, a pink shimmer, and Newport Nude, a pink matte. Both are long-lasting and will wear for several hours. However, the gloss may transfer onto glass.

The Newport Nude is an innovative, ultra high-pigment liquid lipstick with a smooth, ultra-matte finish, lightweight enough to provide comfort all day. To apply it, begin by outlining lips with the tip of the applicator, fill in high pigment color as desired. It will dry completely after 3 to 5 minutes.

As for the color OC Dream, it comes as a high-impact lip gloss with lots of shine and without the heavy feel of traditional lip-gloss. We applied to the center of the top and bottom lips for a sophisticated, light-reflecting effect that makes lips appear fuller.

This was a fun line to try out. Alongside with other names like Fashion Island, West Coast Diva, and Laguna Sunset, the OC Dream Collection makes us believe that anyone can also live the OC Dream. Knowing that each shade was handpicked by the Real Housewife herself certainly makes a difference!


Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer in Petal Pop


Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer in Cake Pop




Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer in Black Licorice Pop & Ripe Pop

Your two orchids are always up to find great two-in-one products. And who can blame us? Today we bring you a sleek pop of liquid matte color which doubles as a primer. Clinique’s Pop Liquid Matte Lip Color + Primer has a moisturizing formula reinforced with a built-in primer that delivers a smooth glide.

When we tried the applicator wand for the first time, the formula seemed somewhat thick, but it turned out very creamy. So much that a little goes a long way. This lightweight liquid lipstick covers the lips with a rich pigmentation for a cool matte effect.

We love that it leaves a long-lasting stain that isn’t drying – a major plus when talking about matte lips. It’s is incredibly comfortable to wear, and very moisturizing for a matte which is surprising, to say the least.

With hundreds of lipsticks in our loot we didn’t possibly think there could be yet another formula created but the quality of this one will have us buying more for sure. The problem will be choosing colors: available in eight gorgeous shades from neutral to bright, Karen already has Petal Pop, Cake Pop, and Ripe Pop which is perfect for Spring and Summer.  Lauren recently added Black Licorice Pop which is perfect for evenings out-on-the-town. 

Although it is a matte lip color, it feels more like a semi-matte or suede matte finish, which is fine for us. You’ll be glad to know that a single coat does the trick for great color. Thanks to that full-coverage your lips will feel as fresh as they look.

Springs hottest lip colors

Spring's hottest lip colors

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in DOLLY

Springs hottest lip colors

Spring is officially here and with it came a blossom of good news for 2Orchids. If you’ve been with us for a while now, you have realized our effort to keep on track with the latest trends in the ever-evolving make-up world. Well, well, well… it looks like we nailed two of the lip products listed by Zoe Report as Spring’s hottest lip colors.

The colors that brought us in tune have the beloved ability to take us from day to night in a season that’s all about celebrating nature and good weather. (Please let us pretend that Spring allergies are not a thing.)

We are talking about Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in DOLLY, which is a sultry mauve, and Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Comfort Matte in BACKTALK, which is a mauve nude pink. Considering our long-term affair with lipstick, we are thrilled with the opportunity to report on these products.

The keywords are mauve and nude (but not that nude, more like neutral). It’s the end of an era ruled by soft pink Spring clichés. The mauve lipsticks we propose are a perfect to-go option when you are not in the mood for statement colors.

For no-shimmer lip gloss with a creamy a tingling shine, the Buxom Full-On in Dolly is more than ideal. It simply pumps and refreshes your lips without shimmering. If you ask us, its texture is perfect to layer over lipstick, but remember to keep your eyes on the target: mauve.

Urban Decay’s Vice lipstick is the creamiest matte you’ll find this Spring. The amount of pigment is insane, with a single swipe you will be blooming in color. This creamy formula is loaded with nourishing ingredients. No dragging or skipping, just gentle hugs to your lips. Did we mention we love it’s modernized version of Urban Decay’s original lipstick case?

Both lip products are filled with nourishing ingredients to leave your lips comfortable enough so you can focus on the good life. For now, it’s all about finding the balance between pink (too matchy-matchy) and nude (too blunt, when not ashy!). This Spring, go Mauve!
