My Top Lipsticks with Swatches! MAC, Nyx, Topshop…

Hi everyone! 

If I’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front I apologise – things are pretty darn busy round these parts. Today I have a new video to bring to your attention! I was inspired by Kaushal Beauty to film my own Lip Swatch video which features my favourite lipsticks within my collection so you can see what they look like on, the formula/colour pay off etc.

I found her video really useful as it gave me an idea of what the lipsticks look like on brown skin tones – this will show you what kind of undertone the lipstick has (it could have a blue undertone which makes teeth look whiter, or an orange undertone which is slightly harder to pull off)

I hope you enjoy watching! I’m pretty proud of this video as I tried to edit it to music a bit!

🙂

Thanks for watching/reading my words that I write

The Wet Look Gloss – That’s not sticky!

Hello everyone!

Today I have a mini review for you, for the other lip product that I bought on #NationalLipstickDay…it’s this gorgeous Dior Lip Maximiser…just take a look at that packaging!

It’s the most girly of lip glosses I ever did see, but luckily it is worth it as this gloss is AMAZING. It is designed to help plump out your lips, advertised as a ‘lip care’ system that uses hyaluronic and marine-based fillers. ‘MARINE BASED FILLERS’ – I have no idea what these are but I am intrigued. Hope there’s no sea horses or anything in there.

It is recommended that you can either use this over your favourite lipstick, OR as a 15 minute intensive treatment before bed time. This claims to help fill out the lines in your lips, to make them look smoother, plumper and more hydrated.

This gloss is very sheer and has quite a balmy consistency. The finish of this gloss is VERY wet look, but this helps to make your lips look fuller (it also has tiny shimmer particles in it which assist in the reflective magic!).

The SMELL of this is so nice, it smells like a mix of mint and vanilla. The mint helps with the cool sensation that you get on the lips when you apply the gloss, it feels really tingly and…kinda nice actually! This makes them actually FEEL bigger, which probably makes you pout a bit automatically lol.

This is now a staple in my hand bag. I don’t use it every day but you never know when you want a good ol’ gloss to slick over the top of your favourite nude lipstick!

Have any of you guys tried the lip maximiser or the Dior Addict Lip Glow? 🙂

Thanks for reading,

MAC’s Patisserie – The Best Nude Ever?

**read to the end of this post for a surprise announcement!**

So, a while ago, #NationalLipstickDay happened and Debenhams took full advantage by offering a £5 off 2 lip products promotion.

I umm’d and ahh’d about which two I wanted, I knew for a fact I wanted another MAC lipstick but which one was the problem?!?! I did a bit of research (which involved going through each shade and google image searching it) and landed on ‘Patisserie’. At first I was unsure about it, I thought it might be too light for me. I rave about the shade ‘Hug Me’ (it’s a lustre) but that is a slightly more brown-y version of ‘Patisserie’.

*btw I have bits of glitter on my face because I was doing something make-y :p. In this picture I have a gloss over the top of ‘Patisserie’*

Having tried this without a lip liner, I have to say I’m actually really impressed! I’ve been reaching for this lipstick pretty much every day now! It’s the most perfect combination of a peachy pinky nude with a touch of golden shimmer. This doesn’t wear off patchily, it’s a lustre so it’s not too opaque in the first place. Another great thing with that is you don’t need to be too precise, it is one of those lip products that you can literally grab on the way out the door and apply without a mirror!

This is quite a creamy formula and although it is MAC it’s not drying at all. This lipstick now has a little home in one compartment of my hand bag and I am very glad this is the case :).

What are your favourite MAC lipsticks?
