Nyx Lip Lingerie review -EXOTICΒ 

Just when you think you have enough lipsticks…. you come across one that’s a slightly different shade to all you already own.

Plus I could not go to the USA without buying any lipstick. I have 4 sisters and this is only lipstick left from the ones I bought πŸ˜’πŸ˜’.

Really loving this lippie. It’s got a little more umph than your average nude.Β  This colour is described as a warm mahogany red. It’s perfect for this season.

As you all know… I have reduced the amount I spend on lipsticks significantly.Β  I find the cheaper ones are most times just as good as the big brands.

I love that this lipstick really dries matte. It doesn’t feel tacky like some other lipsticks do. It is also very light and does not feel cakey when I apply multiple layers.

To top it off I Don’t have to scrub my lips till it’s red raw to get the lipstick off at the end of the day.

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Gravity

So this is the last of the 3 lipsticks bought from the MUA LUXE velvet lip lacquer range. 

Today am wearing the shade Gravity.

This colour did not disappoint. I have been trying to build my collection of nudes and this fits perfectly into what I have already. 

The product is marketed as Long wear. In all honestly it last me all day. I usually have to use a makeup cleanser to remove this lipstick at the end od the day. Am sure you are all wondering if there is any transfer. You will be pleased to know that there is no transfer once dry.

Hey… if you have tried other shades in this range let me know your thoughts. Amy recommendations are welcomed in the comments box below.

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Euphoria

Hey guys … so today am trying out the Euphoria Velvet Lip Lacquer.

Not sure how to describe this lipstick.  It looks very Pinky in the hand. Almost like a baby pink.

However on applying it, it is super bright and rather luminous. 

This is not for the faint hearted.

While am growing to love this shade I found the application some what difficult. The colour was streaky. So in my effort to combat this I applied various layers …ooooops. BIG MISTAKE ! Sadly this just made the lipstick very thick and a little crackly.

I decided to tone this lip colour down by lining my lips. 

I have one more lip colour to trial.   Stay tuned . Let me know which colours loving so far

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Sizzle

Lipsticks are a girl’s bestfriend.  It’s even better when you find a good buy. 

You can image the glee when I found out the superdrugs were doing 3 for 2 on beauty products. I didn’t plan on buying this lipsticks but the offer was too good to missπŸ™ˆ

I spotted the MUA LUXE liquid lipstic and thought I would give it a try. 

Totally impressed by the colours available. Cool nudes and some vibrant blue shapes.

I opted for the Sizzle as I do not currently own any rusty orange shades of lipstick.   This is exactly how I would describe this lipstick. A rusty, burnt orange tone. 

This lipstick tub is well designed with a light frosted finish.  

I like the pigmentation of this lipstick. Well worth the Β£3.  Yes I said Β£3. It dries fairly quickly so you have to be quick. Once dry my lips do not feel hard and dry, or crumbly like most matte lipsticks. 

I will keep you all posted on how I get on with the other shaded that I bought. 

This product was purchased from Superdrugs.

Perfect red lips

Red lips are a classic and you just can’t go wrong.

The only problem is that with so many different shades/brands and texture’s of red lipstick,  which do you go for.?


BRANDS

Deciding which brand to go will depend on your budget. Do you have the budget for designer lipsticks or drug store brand. 

You many also want to consider which brands are creulty free or vegan. Maybe considee which brands use only natural product’s if that’s your thing.
TEXTURE/ FINISH

Once you have that decided on thr brands your prefer, you want to consider the texture or the finish. Are you into the matte look or maybe your more into a glossy finish girl.

M.A.C has about 8 different lipstick textures so fear not. You are bound to find something that suits you. 
SHADE /TONE

Finally, with all the above decided , your ready to decide on which tone or shade of really you want. 

Believe it or not, ever red is not the same. Some red lipsticks have blue/ purple tones. For example the classic M.A.C Ruby Woo, or the Illamasque  Salacious.

You may prefer lipsticks with an orange undertone.  Such as the Illamasque Liable, or the MUA lipstick in shade 13.

Th last tone you might want to consider is pinky shades of red. These include the Illamasque Atomic or Impulse.  I also love the Maybelline Fatal Red.
You may find that some shades/tones of red lipstick will suit different skin complexions more. 

Enjoy your hunt for that perfect red lips-stick.

Primark- PS Matte Long Last Lipstick (Atomic) Review

So I recently lost my lipstick bag😯😯 and some fabulous lipstick shades. I was so gutted but I have been having a blast rebuilding my collectionπŸ’„πŸ’„πŸ’„.

I went back to Primark for a mini haul .

This product is marketed as a matte lipstick.Β  I found that it’s not as drying or matte as the likes of MAC or Lime Crime. In a way I liked this.Β  Non of that chapped lips look .

This pink shade is called Atomic. It reminds me soo much of the Utopia by LimeCrime.Β  But at a fraction of the price…. winning.
I did a little comparison just for you.
