MBA Cosmetics Mega Matte Liquid Lipsticks + Discount

Happy Hump Day beauty babes, we are almost through the week and we are "THIS" close to being through the Year!! New Years- What?! I'm gonna say it, I am sure everyone is saying it, but truly truly I cannot believe the year is just about over. My mind is blown on that one for sure.... Time escapes us so fast, and I don't even have a super over the top fabulous New Years Makeup look to share and inspire you with this year. :( I thought I would have time but just couldn't make it happen. I DO however have several Lip Swatches that I am excited to share with you! ♥

These are the MBA Cosmetics Mega Matte Liquid Lipsticks! they are $14. Even less if you use my Discount code - AGAPELOVE15 - ♥ Now I know I talk about MBA Cosmetics a lot on this blog, but before I get into the details on these lippies, I'd like to tell you a little more about this brand... For those of you who dont know, MBA Cosmetics ships WORLD WIDE! I know not everyone who reads my blog is from the US. I also know there are times I share other brands and products that not everyone can get. :( However, you can get MBA, so if you have found yourself wishing you could get some of the MBA products I share on my blog in your Country - You CAN! SO dont be afraid to fall in love with an item and check out the rest of their amazing products!

Speaking of amazing products, MBA Cosmetics not only carries makeup but beauty tools, Faux Septum Rings (as I am wearing in the swatch photos) and more. MBA also distributes products from other brands on their website - like City Color, LA Girl and Beauty Treats. Whats wonderful about that is that my discount code also works for those items too - it will give you 15% off ANYTHING on their website, you can even use it during sales to get an extra % off the already discounted price. There is actually only one exception for my discount code, and that is their Beauty Subscription Bag! Yes they have a Sub bag and its all full size products too. Their sub bag is already majorly discounted, which is why the code cant be used for it.

Alright, now that I have filled you in a little more on MBA Cosmetics - lets move on these Lippies!! As described on the website: the Mega Matte Liquid Lipsticks are ultra matte and smudge-proof. This product is VEGAN friendly! The Mega Matte Lipsticks are very matte and intended to be worn alone, applying any type of oils, including lip balms or glosses over the Mega Mattes will break them down. Avoid eating oily or buttery foods. We suggest moisturizing lips after removing the Mega Matte Lipstick and exfoliating before use.

These liquid mattes are beautiful and comfortable! They do eventually dry down completely and become smudge-proof, but don't totally dry out your lips. The colors are vibrant and pigmented as well as opaque. These are also very long lasting, though not as long lasting as their Matte Liquid Lip Colors! The main difference between these Mega Mattes and the Matte Lip Colors are that the Lip Colors stay put no matter what - eating or drinking and all! They are a lot tougher to remove, whereas the Mega Mattes will fade a lot more quickly when eating and drinking. Both formulas are wonderful in my opinion, though.

Moving on the the swatches and color descriptions!

 Violet Riot is a vibrant purple with magenta undertone. Im also wearing the Faux Septum 'Elizabeth-Pink'!

 Divine is a gorgeous Mulberry color. I'm also wearing the Faux Septum 'Masquerade-Steel'!

Kohl is a gorgeous deep & dark black. I'm also wearing the Faux Septum 'Fame & Fortune-Silver'!

 Malibu is a vivid medium coral pink. I'm also wearing the Faux Septum 'Skully-Gold'!

Mayhem is a medium/dak shade of Teal. I'm also wearing the Faux Septum 'Fiery-Opal'!

Mocha is a medium shade of brown. Im also wearing the Faux Septum 'Elizabeth-Pink'!

Vintage is a cool mauve shade with a grungy (almost gray/brown) undertone. I'm also wearing the Faux Septum 'Fiery-Opal'!

VooDoo is a very dark blackened burgundy. (Looks almost black when dry). I'm also wearing the Faux Septum 'Skully-Gold'!

I really like all of these shades - sure I personally really wont get much use out of Kohl, Mocha and Mayhem... But I am in LOVE with Vintage, Divine and Malibu, and also really like wearing Voodoo and Violet Riot - those two shades really pull me out of my comfortable color box! ♥ Which of these is your favorite?

Dirty Martini | Get The Look Video Tutorial

Hello beauties!! I am back yet again with another make look to share with you. This one is a "Get The Look" tutorial - which means that I have a Video Tutorial to go a long with it. ♥ This look was requested by a dear subscriber of mine who is more like a friend now - we talk often via social media. Anyways her name is also Maria, and she requested a green look - specifically featuring MBA Cosmetic's Shadow Dirty Martini (This shadow is available loose or pressed as I used in this tutorial). 

Now, I absolutely LOVE the color green. Truly aside from burgundy/maroon Green is my favorite color! Though, I don't wear it on my eyes as much because its just too similar to my eye color. My eyes are hazel - leaning mostly towards green. So this look just makes my eyes blend in and kind of mutes them out - similar to how I mentioned blue shadows to do my eyes. However Maria has BROWN eyes and green looks great on brown eyes! And even if you have hazel eyes that lean more towards an amber color - this look will be amazing on you. ♥ So this look is specifically for you brown eyed beauties.
I also wanted to mention that the majority of the eye brushes I am using in this tutorial are from Beauty Junkees! If you watch my Mailbox Monday videos, you know I received a very generous package from Julie of Beauty Junkees with several of her Brush sets! SO I was eager to put them to the test and I am thrilled to tell you, they are wonderful as well as affordable! Julie was even so kind enough to offer a discount for YOU to use. ♥ For 25% Off Any One Individual Makeup Brush or Set use Code: AGAPELOV One redemption per customer - Expires on: January (1.31.2016)

Sultry Turquoise & Burgundy Glitter Eye Makeup Inspiration

Hey Beauty Babes, thanks for visiting today! I am back with another makeup look to inspire you! This is a look that is slightly out of my comfort zone, as I don't typically like to wear blue. Ive said it before, but I will say it again - blue tones just seem to mute out my eye color rather than make them pop. Still I think blue shadows are SO gorgeous and I don't want to rule them out completely. So to try something different, I decided to pair a gorgeous turquoise blue shade with a shade that I absolutely LOVE to wear - Burgundy. ♥ And while I am still not a major fan of blue for my eyes, I think the look itself turned out beautifully! ♥ Keep reading for all the details.
If you are subscribed to my Youtube Channel or follow me on snapchat you may have seen that I received an amazing package from Urban Decay! I will be doing a detailed video unboxing with swatches of all the products I got, as well as a look featuring all UD products soon too, so stay tuned for that. But I just could not wait to try out their  Heavy Metal Glitter Liners! As you can clearly see, I used one in this look today. These glitter liners are so neat and a convenient, mess-free way to add a touch of glitter to your look! Whether you want to add a glitter to your lower lash line, inner corner high light, winged liner... Or add a little pizzazz to your entire lid like I did - these glitter liners are perfect! I am already obsessed. ♥

Sometimes we can get stuck in a rut doing the same look over and over, and never stepping out of our "color box". I know - I do that all too often! So its nice to try new things, go for looks or colors we may not initially choose and just see what happens! As a beauty blogger its important to me to step out of my beauty comfort zone and color box and try new things - so I can inspire others! So I hope enjoy and do feel inspired!!

 Let me know what you think - Hopefully you enjoyed this look inspiration - and maybe try it for yourself! If you do - please feel free to share. I'd love to see your looks too. Share with me via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #AgapeLoveGirlLooks or if you share it on your blog - leave a link to it in the comments. Or even better - link it up to Makeup Monday! ♥

#FilmoraGo (Video Editing App) Review & Demo!

**Thank You to Wondershare Technology for sponsoring this post and a huge thank you to my readers for supporting the sponsors that make Agape Love Designs possible. All thoughts, tips and opinions are my own.**
Hey friends, thanks so much for joining me today! I've got review and demo to share with you today of the Video Editing App FilmoraGo! I was pretty excited to find out Filmora created a mobile app, because I actually use the Filmora Desktop Editor for my Youtube videos. So I am already a fan. ♥ I also did not previously have a mobile video editor on my phone. I have in the past tried a couple other mobile editors, but never liked them. They either didn't seem easy to use, were very limited or else they wanted to add a big ugly watermark across my videos! Which I can understand - but lets be real - I don't want videos with an app watermark on them. If you are like me, you will be glad to hear that FilmoraGo doesnt add a watermark or limit your time!

Now, just because I am a youtuber, doesn't mean I am the only one in need of mobile video editor. We live in a digital and mobile age. Everyone and their mom (literally - Hi Mom!) uses smart phones and social media to connect, share memories, photos and videos. With this video editor you can share those things in a much more fun, beautiful and personal way! Especially during the Christmas season - which is one reason why I wanted to get this review and demo up asap. Because this app includes holiday inspired themes and effects such as snow overlays, Christmas music and motion graphics - so that you can share some really awesome Holiday Memories in style!!
In my video review & demo (at the end of this post) I will go through the entire app and show you how fun and easy it is to use and create pretty videos to share! I've even taken some screen shots to give you a preview, in case you are pressed for time and cant watch the video at the moment... But before we go into all that - let me tell you a little more about FilmoraGo! It's easy-to-use and comes packed with a collection of one-touched themes and other cool effects. You can import images from Instagram and Facebook for editing and then share the works to various social media platforms directly. The App is free and now available for Android* on Google Play! FilmoraGo for iPhones coming soon! *Hooray for Android users! ♥

Alright... SO in these screen shots you can see that you can easily select photos or videos from your phone, facebook or instagram!

Once you have your photos and videos selected, they will open up in the editor like so:

Here you can see the options available to edit each video clip (or photo) you have.

Here are just some of the fun (motion) effects you can add...
I hope you can tell how neat and easy to use the app is from these screen shots, but I definitely encourage you to watch my video demo to get a better idea of how to use the app! ♥ Over all I think its a wonderful app with many pros! Although there are a few things I would LOVE to see added to the editor whenever they update it... Listed those in the "con" section, although there arent really deal breakers for me, obviously. ;)

-No Time Limits
-No Watermark across your videos!
-Easy to use
-Fun Themes 
-Beautiful Effects & Motion Graphics
-Cool Overlays & Filter
-Music is included
-Export to various social platforms!

-No Transitions
-No option to speed up or slow down clips
-Cant change fonts

Alright, friends I hope you found this video helpful! If you have any questions - please dont hesitate to ask! Be sure to watch the video demo below and let me know you own thoughts!
