Lipsticks: liquid vs. solid
Not only do lipsticks come in different shades, they also come in different textures, which can result in very different finishes or sense of experience. Liquid lipstick: NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment #Rock with you This is one of my favourite lipsticks to use during the winter season and for creating Ombre lips because it is in a luscious dark berry colour that really brings a sense of mysteriousness and specialness to the look. The finish is very matte, and can be quite drying for the lips, so it is important to prep your lips with lip balm well before applying. Because it is a liquid formula, it tints the lips and lasts a very long period throughout the day. It even stays on after I ate my meals. Solid lipstick: MAC Matte Lipstick #Diva One thing I prefer solid lipsticks over liquid ones is that it is easier for touch-ups when you are outside. Most of the times I didn’t even need a mirror to apply it, but with liquid lipsticks, I have to be very meticulous with the application so that the colour will apply evenly across my lips and will not go over the lip lines. This lipstick is in a very similar shade as the NARS lipstick, but less purple, and complements my neutral skin tone equally well. It also leaves a matte finish but is less drying than the liquid lipstick and consequently it lacks in staying power. Overall, I still prefer this product over NARS because I get the same finish look while my lips are more comfortable with this product and I can reapply more easily.

Some NARS love 💕
I love me some good ol NARS. I received the NARS - Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil originally as samples. I loved the color and how long they lasted on my lips. It became a repurchase. The NARS - Powermatte Lip Pigment was also a sample. I love how the wand made application easy. However, the color that was sent seemed way too dark for my lips (I’m more of a pink and bold red lip kind of girl). But that is just my own personal opinion. I just received a sample of their gloss in my recent Sephora haul, results TBD. I’ll let you guys know how it goes. I do love this brand and use other products of theirs. What’s something you love by them? 🙏🏻❤️
maybelline makes one of my favourite drugstore lipsticks. The shades I've tried are pigmented, non sticky and feel very comfortable on the lips. The metallic shades are a bit drier, but still comfortable enough to wear throughout the day. No funky taste or smell like some other brands and the shade range is amazing. These are some of my favourite warm shades shown on very pale skin because I know how hard it can be to find a good nude shade when you're the palest of pale. Shades shown (from top to bottom): 💄 Crazy for Coffee 💄 Touch of Spice 💄 Maple Kiss 💄 Truffle Tease 💄 Stormy Sahara 💄 Copper Spark
MAYBELLINE-Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Lipstick
Very retro like the glam Hollywood movie stars cigarette holders ✨✨✨
HOURGLASS - Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick The packaging is soooooo classy. It feels heavy when held. I also love the idea that this lipstick is refillable. BUT! Please note that each lipstck is only 0.9 grams, which means the price is a little enormous... As for the formula , it is so comfortable to wear. It has a demi-matte texture with long lasting but not drying effect. .I find it to be very moisturizing without the spread outside of the lip line. I got 4 shades and I tend to use You Make Me and I Feel more often. 💄You Make Me Terracotta nude with orange hue. You can apply a thin layer if you want an everyday look for work or school. 💄I Feel I Feel is soooo gorgeous, it's perfect, nice combination of warm and cold undertones. It has more orange under warm light and it becomes Deep beige with cold light. 💄If Only-it is a medium rose shade , very gentle and feminine. 💄I'm Addicted-nude pink, not for people with dark lips. And I'm afraid it makes me look pale.
HOURGLASS-Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick
I just tried maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick and it’s absolutely stunning. I have been wanting to try something from maybelline for a long time. Being such a lipstick junkie, I tried out the maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick. The shade range is amazing; it’s made to give you lip shades bold and iconic 😍😍😍

Which texture you prefer? ✅❎
As a professional make-up brand, MAC has many different textures on lipstick. I am going to compare the difference between matte and sheer. “Baroque the Internet”$24 VS “Dare You”$18.5. In particular, left one is the 2020 spring limited edition. The case is very special, which is transparent and mix of frosted and matte materials. The color is “Baroque the Internet.” Recently, it has become my favorite lipstick. Most lipsticks with matte texture have a little bit dry. But this one does not have this problem. On the contrary, it is moisturizing, it is 10 times more moisturizing than Ruby woo. I am not sure whether MAC boutiques sell this series, so I bought it from amazon. The bad news is the price will be higher than the common case. The right lipstick is “Dare you”. I always call it “red diamond”, cuz it is very shining on your lip. The texture is sheer, so when you wear it, you can feel the smooth. The color has little cherry but not too purple. Although it is a lipstick, but the feeling on your lip seems like you are wearing a lip gloss. “Dare you” also contains fine glitter powder, so if you wear on the night, it will be more attractive. I like both of them. “Baroque the Internet” is more daily, I can wear it everyday in any place! “Dare you” is more suitable for the dancing night!
Similar color $18.5 PK $ 55!
These two lipsticks are very similar in orange color. But they have a big gap in price. Mac is $18.5, and Tom Ford costs 55, they are three times different in price. In terms of texture, both of them are sheers with luster. The packaging is black. And both lipsticks have their own smell. Mac has a fruit candy flavor and Tom Ford has a chocolate flavor. For the Tome ford, the color is true coral. Its texture is creamy and smooth. It is very moist and has excellent chromaticity. If you put more layers on your lips, it will have a little fluorescent color. It can help you to cover the original lip color due to high concealer ability. The color tried on my hands is no different from that on the lips. Moistening degree 5 Concealer ability 4 Cost performance 4 TOM FORD - Lip Color Matte Lipstick This MAC has a very clear chocolate vanilla flavor, which is a sweet taste that won't make people dislike. The texture is very moisturizing, but if you want to strengthen the color, you need to base your lips first. Moistening degree 4 Concealer ability 3 Cost performance 4 MAC - MAC Matte Lipstick If you are hesitated between both of them, I still recommend you to buy Tom Ford “true coral”. Because his moistening degree can reach the full star!

These shades from NARS are GORGEOUS! 💖
I have been using NARS' lipsticks NARS - NARS Lipstick for years. The texture and scent are excellent and I just cannot live without these lipsticks. The lipsticks are pigmented and easy to blend. And today I want to share these three shades that I have been using all the time lately. ✨👄 NARS Shanghai Express, is a deep jujube red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It gives high color payoff, doesn't dry on lips nor bleed into lip lines. NARS Fire Down Below is a violet tone shade that will never go wrong. It gives you a radiant and fairer look. However, you have to prime your lips as this lipstick is a little dry. NARS Mona Audacious Lipstick has a medium-dark burgundy shade and is more suitable for fall and winter use. You can apply a thin layer for school or work and a thicker layer for date nights.😎 These three shades really worth a try. Highly recommend them to anyone!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
