Lipsticks: Solid (Creamy) vs. Liquid (Mousse)
Lipsticks come in different textures that can help you achieve different looks. With similar shades, I am still able to switch up the mood by using either a creamy lipstick or a mousse type, depending on my lips’ condition and the occasion. Solid Lipstick: Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipstick #410 Dynamic For a daily and effortless look, I tend to gravitate towards this product because it has an MLBB shade that complements my neutral skin tone really well. It naturally brightens up my face without attracting too much attention to my lips, so I like to use it when I want to emphasize my eye makeup or when I’m feeling lazy and want to go out with a bare face. This lipstick feels very moisturizing and creamy without being too heavy and oily. It glides right onto the lips, and the color payoff is moderate, which helps me to achieve that natural look. However, because of its formula, it is not very long lasting. Nevertheless, it doesn’t really bother me because I find it easier to retouch the lip colors with a solid lipstick as they are easier to blend. Liquid Lipstick: Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour #196 Precieux This product is also in an MLBB shade that is more of a dried rose color with gold shimmers. What is different about this product compared to the Estee Lauder lipstick is that it is in a liquid, mousse form. This gives me a really soft and airy matte finish without drying my lips out, which I absolutely adore. What is more amazing is that it doesn’t emphasize the wrinkles and cracks in my lips, unlike most of the matte lipsticks on the market! This lipstick tends to make me look more mature given my neutral skin tone, which I like when I want to go for a sophisticated look. Because of its special texture and finish, I prefer this one over the solid lipstick.

Fav Fall lipsticks 🍁
I absolutely love everything about Fall 🍁! The leaves changing colors, the air getting cooler, everything apple and pumpkin, and of course the lip colors!!! Here are my absolute favorites for this Fall! (From front to back) ESTĒE LAUDER - Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick $32.00 Shade: Intense nude I grew up with my grandma giving these to me from her free gifts she would get every month or so. These lipsticks aren’t just amazing quality they are memories ❤️ The colors are so incredibly rich and creamy while on, and they don’t dry my lips out. These will always be my favorite classic lipstick. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick $20.00 Shade: Veronica I looooove liquid lipstick and this formula is really good. They stay on a long time and I usually have to reapply once for it to last all day long. This formula isn’t as drying as some others but it can get a tad drying as he day goes on. WANDER BEAUTY - Out Dual Lipsticks Shade: Barely there $28 I love these lipsticks so much!! This was a sample size so it’s a single but the formula is SUPER creamy. These have vitamin e and mango seed butter and they keep your lips nice and soft and all the colors are beautiful! So many pretty fall shades!! JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS The Gloss $18.00 Shade: Crystal Climax I am NOT a gloss fan and this was gifted to me by a friend so I tried it anyway and I love it! It’s not majorly sticky and the color cover almost as much as a regular lipstick. I think this is an absolutely perfect fall color choice! It’s super shimmery without being too childish. I will use the rest of this but will not purchase myself. pretty VULGAR - My Lips Are Sealed Liquid Lipstick $17.00 Shade: Artful Deception Pretty Vulgar has such a cute vintage and old fashioned look to their packaging that I just love! This lipstick is not a smudge proof formula so I have to reapply often but this color is such a dark copper that’s my #1 go to right now. They only have a few shades is the drawback 😩 I’d love to get some recommendations from you! Tell me what your favorite fall lipstick is!!!!
My Lipstick Awards!
I choose these three lipsticks as my favorites according to different situations after comparing and struggling for a long time since I have lots of lipsticks, and each of them is unique. TOM FORD LIP COLOR 15 WILD GINGER—for outing The texture of TOM FORD lipstick is really amazing since it has high color saturation and it is also creamy and moist. The color of TF 15 WILD GINGER is a wonderful mix of red and orange, which can easily make me look younger and more energetic. Trust me, it is the most suitable lipstick for outing and traveling. ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Lipstick/Rouge 260 ECCENTRIC—for dating The color of ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Lipstick 260 ECCENTRIC is fantastic pink, which can make me look super soft and elegant. My boyfriend always compliments that I am so romantic and attractive once I use this one in dating. Believe it or not, this lipstick is the most perfect one for dating since it is generally challenging for boys to understand the lip color. In addition, it is continuously moisturized throughout the day, although I always apply it thickly. MAC AMPLIFIED LIPSTICK DUBONNET—for daily life For me, MAC DUBONNET is the most frequently used lipstick. The color of this one is a marvelous mix of red and brown. I can say that MAC DOBONNET is the best representative in a reddish brown color scheme. It is so easy-matching that you can easily show your disposition. Besides, what fascinates me most is that it contributes to covering my lip lines to some extent. In conclusion, if I cannot decide which lipstick to use, I would pick up this one in the end. Believe me, and please buy it now without hesitation.
Please Have a Cup of Coffee!☕☕💄
L'Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain is a series that I admire very much. So far they have provided more than 37 shades, including metallic, bright, neutral and this moody plum, called I Enjoy. All parts are consistently smooth and hard to be noticed, we will forget that we are wearing it. At the same time, this brand also provides us with more diverse choices. For some high-end brands, if we can't afford it, we can use this brand as a dupe, and the effect is very good. L'ORÉAL - Rouge Signature Matte Liquid Lipstick#116 $7 This is the product most similar toCHANEL - ROUGE ALLURE INK Matte Liquid Lip Colour#176. I think it is the best dupe. The price of Chanel Lip Stain 176 is about $40. At this price, you can buy 6 L'Oreal products. This price is very attractive. In terms of color, both products are very authentic brown. Among them, Chanel adds more earthy tones, while L'Oreal has more brown tones. In terms of texture, Chanel 176 is more shiny, while the matte texture of L'Oreal 116 is more obvious. After being applied to the lips, the color of both will be a little lighter than the color of the paste. At this time, if you wear a white dress, you will be the most beautiful highlight in the crowd! L'Oreal's matte texture is different from traditional products, it will not burden you. Because the oil-in-water formula allows the lips to breathe freely. For best results, we recommend exfoliating the lips before use. Then use the point of the applicator to carefully outline and apply from the center and blend outwards. On the other hand, this color makes the teeth very white, and with the help of the applicator, it is very easy to apply, and it will not outline the outside at all. Sometimes, if you need to, you can apply a few more layers, because just touching the lips will have a watery touch, so a few more layers will not feel unnatural.
My Best Lip Gloss Awards!
This beauty award troubles me a lot since I have a lot of lip gloss and each one of them has its outstanding features. After a long time of struggle, I choose these three for this award. YSL TATOUAGE COUTURE MATTE STAIN 16—most naked I can say that YSL 16 is the best representative in cameo brown color scheme. This kind of color is pretty naked and natural which makes me look super soft, generous and elegant. Therefore, it can be used in every occasion and I take it with me as long as I go out. Actually, I bought it two years ago and I almost used it up. (You know how difficult it is to use up a tube of lip gloss) CHANEL ROUGE ALLURE INK FUSION 818 TRUE RED—most lasting Whenever I apply CHANEL INK 818 on my lip, I feel like a noble princess. Its color is quite similar to fresh red apples which would make me look younger and more energetic easily. The amazing thing is that it is hydrated and comfortable enough, although it would become matte immediately. However, the reason why I love it so much is that it is the most lasting lip gloss that I have ever used. It seems that the color can cling to my lip firmly without fading no matter I eat or drink. Thus, this one would be my first choice to date. GIORGIO ARMANI LIP MAESTRO 405—brightest GA is my favorite brand among all top cosmetic brands since it offers so many choices on lip color for customers and I recommend GA 405 the most. The color of GA 405 is similar to ripe tomatoes which is a perfect mix of red and orange. Also, it has a naturally glossy finish with soft copper-gold micro-shimmer. When it is applied on my lip, my skin looks fresher, healthier and more vibrant immediately even if I stay up late the night before. In a word, it suits all occasions. Whenever I cannot decide which lip gloss to use, I would choose this one.
Dupe, worth it? Estée Lauder VS. MAC
（The Mac lipstick is in the travel size version, not full size. I believe that red lipstick should be a staple item in every girl’s makeup collection. My favourite red lipsticks include Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick in the shade 333 Persuasive and MAC’s Matte Lipstick in the shade Chili. They happen to be very similar in terms of colour and consistency, and I think MAC’s Chili makes a pretty good dupe of Estée Lauder’s Persuasive. Estée Lauder ($53): I have a neutral skin tone, and this lipstick really brightens my complexion, so I use it almost every day! It is in a beautiful warm red colour that resembles the colour of autumn leaves. I find this lipstick to be very versatile and suitable for any occasion because it goes well with any outfit. I love the application because it is in a creamy texture that glides on the lips like butter. Even though it creates a matte finish, it is not drying at all. One downside about this lipstick is that it is not very long-lasting but it has a very high colour payoff. MAC ($30 / full size, $21 / travel size): Chilli is one of MAC’s most famous products, and I can definitely see why and agree with its popularity! Its colour is more of a deeper and richer brick red compared to Estée Lauder’s lipstick. It adds more liveliness to my face. Chilli has a similar creamy texture that leaves a matte finish, high colour payoff and is equally not very long-lasting. I also find that Chilli complements other lipsticks really well, and smells like chocolate. The only fault I find in this lipstick is that it is more drying than Estée Lauder so you need to moisturise your lips well before using. Apart from that, I love the colour more and therefore thinks that MAC is more worth it.
MAC-MAC Matte Lipstick
Best Armani Lipstick Dupes – Mac
Armani Beauty gains great attention through the beauty markets. Even the price is at a high level. I think it is worth every penny. This brand always does a great job on each of product. Here, I have a dupe recommend – MAC cosmetics, which also provide great products at a very affordable price. These two lipsticks are mauve color, which brightens up my skin tone. Forget to mention that I'm fair to light skin tone. Armani Beauty Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick $38 Color: 507 Garconne – Mauve Berry Armani #507 is a purple-pink color liquid lipstick. The color is very rich. The texture is lightweight and ultra-thin. It creates a matte finish without too heavy or too thin. And, it is very easy to apply. Mac Satin Lipstick $17 Color: Captive – Pinkish Plum This is a stick lipstick with pink-purple color. The texture of it is really rich and creamy. Color performance is so good. But it's a bit hard to apply. I will recommend wearing a lip primer before applying the lipstick, which will make the application smoothly. Although these two products have a different finish, one for matte and other for satin, the final finish look won't have a great difference. The color of them looks very similar. Though Mac Lipstick #Captive is called as pinkish plum and Armani #507 is described as Mauve Berry, the actual look they present is that captive is more purplish and #507 is more pinkish. Both of them are quite long-lasting and waterproof. I could wear them for more than 5 hours. Armani lipstick did a better job on transfer-proof function. When I wear it, I don't need to refine the make-up after an afternoon tea. Overall, I like both of them. Also, I think both of the brands are professional in makeup products. I will recommend to choose them on your budgets or preference.

Fav and Meh, my Dior products spotlight
My skin tone: fair to light Come to see my favorite Dior lipstick Dior Addict Lipstick 967 DIOR - Addict Stellar Shine Lipstick The packaging of Dior lipsticks is fancy which attracts me. I bought this lipstick without thinking. The truth is that I am delighted with this choice. The shade of 967 is a kind of fuchsia tone which is not friendly to medium and dark tone skin. But it suits fair to light skin tone persons very well personally think. The balm glides on with incredible sensoriality and instantly melts in contact with the lips for shine with sheer, vibrant color. It said to be infused with aloe vera for 24h-hydration and long-lasting comfort. And I agree with this point. It’s not oily but good hydration. You will not feel the existence on your lips. With high pigmentation, it will provide a gorgeous but lovely finish look. I don’t need to use lip balm before applying it. Here comes my“meh” Dior Lip Maximizer 001 light pink DIOR - Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss I bought this lip maximizer because of a Korean influencer. The Instant plumping and shimmering make her makeup fresh and lovely. I admit that the packaging is good-looking. No girls can deny this kind of pink stuffs. It claims that the lip plumper gloss will smooth, 24-hour hydrate lips and give an instant, long-lasting plump effect. Indeed it is hydrating. But it never stays on my lips for more than 2 hours. It’s super sticky, you cannot imagine how terrible my lip makeup is in windy days. The mint scent is okay for me. But if you are sensitive to fragrance, you should avoid using it. If you want to try Dior lipsticks, numerous shades will provide different looks. You will not make mistakes in choosing Dior lipsticks. But lip maximizer really disappointing me.

What Lipsticks are in My Bag?
I would like to introduce different lipsticks I usually use on different occasions, such as going to school, clubs and work. Mac 108 is definitely the one I will apply when I go to the club. This one has a gorgeous red. This one looks beautiful on my neutral skin, and it is suitable for day and nighttime looks. In the evening, it creates a dreamy vampish classic red with a smoky eye. I really love the sexy moderately red color. The formula is amazing. However, after a few hours applying this lipstick, my lip feels dry and peel. So I need to apply lip balm before this. This one has strong staying power. After eating and drinking, it just turns lighter in color but not fade. The color is also buildable when I want a darker or lighter color. When I go to the club, this color boosts my confidence. I love it! Kylie gloss literary is the lipstick I will wear when I go to school. Literary is a kind of medium shade, which is not too dark or too cute to me. The color is very suitable for formal occasions with light markup. When I am applying this lipstick, I prefer an earth tone with this perfect nude and shiny color. This one lasts a long time before having to reapply. I think it would work best on all skin tones. The gloss is excellent with a very sticky formula. I have to be careful when I open the lip because the bristle is easy to mess up. It smells like a cupcake. Lancome ruby cream 02 is the one I usually wear when I work. I need to face the customers and provide excellent customer services with a shiny smell. This lipstick helps my smell sweet and elegant. The shade of the lipstick is very different and beautiful. It has a matte finish and a little bit shine to it. It has a beautiful rich red, matte finish and a little bit shine to it. It has fun and luxurious packaging. I need to press the top of the tube, and the tube slides down. I love the formula because it is super creamy, but not dry or sticky. The texture is heavenly, very pigmented and hydrating. When applying, this goes on smoothly and evenly. Sometimes my lip is very dry, and this one can make my lip soft and smooth. One of the drawbacks of this lipstick is that this is not a very last-long lipstick. When I eat or drink this one, it would slowly fade.

My fav shades of YSL Slim Matte Lipsticks 💋💋💋
I am a fan of YVES SAINT LAURENT - Rouge Pur Couture the Slim Matte Lipstick Beautiful and sleek casing which can be engraved. It’s skinny so it fits right into your purse with no trouble. It's very easy for touch ups. However, as it’s skinny, it’s easy for it to break and fall out of the tube. 🥺🥺 The formula is creamy, non- drying and glides on effortlessly. The texture is matte, but I had no issue with bleeding or cracking even though I have dry lips. Pigmentation is amazing too.🥰🥰 💄#21 This shade is retro red with a little cold tone. It's the perfect/classic red that flatters all the skin tone and looks good for every occasion: glamorous night or casual brunch. 💄#17 A gentle color. It's a nude antique rose, and it's very friendly to skin of white and yellow tone. It's suitable for everyday use and daily use.I was looking for a Pink that was better than my natural lip color. This fits the bill!
YVES SAINT LAURENT-Rouge Pur Couture the Slim Matte Lipstick
One of my favorite lipsticks is Jk Magic. This shade is super flattering and I love the formula. It’s super creamy and pigmented and I love that it doesn’t dry out my lips. I really enjoy the packaging, it’s refillable which makes it better for the environment and the case is beautiful! I think the formula and the case are very high quality. However, I do notice that if I throw it in my purse, the design on the case can get scratched. If you find a shade you like, I do recommend these lipsticks. I think they are worth the splurge and I’d definitely purchase more!

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.2 DAYS AGO
