My 3 Favourite Lipsticks
Lipsticks come in a huge variety, whether it be shades or textures, and I always have trouble choosing a favourite. However, as of lately, I’ve been loving and reaching towards these three lipsticks the most: Yves Saint Laurent Vernis À Lèvres Water Stain, Yves Saint Laurent Vernis A Levres Vinyl Cream Stain, and Sephora Collection Color Lip Last Lipstick. YSL Water Stain #610: This has been my favourite lipstick to use as the weather turns colder, and the leaves turns redder. This shade resembles a toned down, milk tea colour that matches perfectly with the autumn mood, so I have been using it daily. I love the texture of this lipstick because it is moisturizing, which has been helping my lips cope with the drying weather. What’s more surprising is that it is not heavy and sticky on the lips at all, unlike most glossy type lipsticks. Like its name, its finish is glossy but not overly tacky, just like your lips have been coated by a thin layer of water. However, due to its lightweight texture, it is not very long lasting and the colour transfers easily onto other objects. YSL Vinyl Cream Stain #416: I also love to use this product recently because of its sophisticated, rotten tomato shade that really compliments my skin tone (neutral). I tend to use it for more special occasions where I want to go for a more dramatic look. Similar to the Water Stain, it also gives a glossy finish, which I adore lately because it makes the lips look plump and healthy. However, it does feel heavier on the lips, but it is the most long lasting out of the three lipsticks because it stains the lips. I love the application because it glides on easily, blending smoothly onto the lips. Both YSL lipsticks smell like sweet candy, which is definitely a plus for me. Sephora Collection Color Lip Last Lipstick: Last but not least, this lipstick also made it into my top 3 list because I was pleasantly surprised by its texture and colour payoff. It feels like butter and glides right onto the lips. Also, it has amazing colour payoff. Normally, I only need to dab a little onto the lips, and one swipe is enough to deepen the colour. I love to use this when I want matte lips for a daily look, because of its beautiful dried rose shade, not to mention it also smells like sweet candy, which lightens my mood whenever I use it!

Create my own summer lip color 🍒+🍑
Today I want to share a really beautiful combination that I love to do recently. Since there are more sunny days this month, I prefer using shiny lip glosses. And the Water Stain collection of Yves Saint Laurent has been my favorite lip products recently because they are water-enriched, lightweight, fresh, and non-sticky at all. The price is $37, like the regular prices of YSL lip products, and recently Sephora has its VIP sales for 20% off, which is a perfect time to give it a try. Let’s start from the base color #610, named nude underwater, which is a brown nutmeg nude. I usually do two layers, because the color is quite sheer but still buildable. I want to have a peach nude color underneath, so the other color will blend naturally. Then I will use #613 on top. This is called Cascade Bordeaux, which is a deep burgundy shade if I do several layers, and a bright strawberry red if I only do one layer. That is the reason I love this collection because they are sheer and buildable, and you can choose how many colors you want depending on seasons, weathers or moods. In this combination, I will only put #613 on the center of my lower lip and blend it with #610 and repeat it again to have a juicy cherry lip color. Then I will use #610 again only on the edge of my lips and blend it inside to have a soft transition. Comparing with only using #610, I feel this combination can make my lips look more pump, and the color is perfect for summer. Since we have to stay at home, it’s time to do some creativity. I do have fun using my old lip colors to create some new ones, and I think it is a good way to save money too. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Vernis à Lèvres Water Stain Lip Stain
My lipstick 101
Lipstick is something that you never get enough! I mean, each of them has different shades, texture, and you can use them to create countless looks matching with your makeup. How can we say no! ◇ YSL Vernis A Levres Water Satin #613 Love this one!! I have recommended this to many friends and I introduce it to them as “like a cup of strawberry milkshake”. Though it seems to have a dark shade that’s more burgundy than red, it still makes your lip looks soft and tender. The credit should give to its texture. This new formula designed by YSL is super sheer that it's almost unobservable if you only apply one layer. By saying so I don't mean that this lipstick is difficult to get pigmented, instead you can easily build up the color as much as you want depends on how many layers you wanna reapply (and it won't get cakey and sticky!) Really think this product change my mind for lipstick satin. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Vernis à Lèvres Water Stain Lip Stain ◇ PAT MCGRATH LABS BlitzTrance Lipstick #072 Flesh Fatale PAT receives popularity because of its glittering eyeshadows, and they have developed it further to lipstick! I often prefer dark and vivid color when purchasing lipstick, this one is the only light-shade lipstick I own, and it's perfect to wear when you have no makeup on. Yes, this is a lipstick that can lighten up your dull skin and make your lip shine with its gold glitters. However, one disadvantage of it is that the glitters are big and gritty, and it does stay after the color wears off. PAT McGRATH LABS - BlitzTrance Lipstick ◇ MAC Amplified Lipstick #108 Dubonnet The oxblood color! Such a flattering shade which is a deep, cool-toned red and I love to match it with my heavy makeup to harmonize the overall look. It is perfect if you wanna create a charming atmosphere. Although I got warm-tone complexion, this color still looks beautiful and will make your skin brighter. It also has long-lasting power that stays after eating and drinking. MAC - Amplified Lipstick ◇ LANCOME Lacquer Liquid Lipstick #274 This one is not that famous like the other 3, but it's still my pick above all in winter! Instead of using vivid and high-saturation colors, I would use 274 because I prefer my winter looks to be low-key and implicit. Apply 274 independently, you will get a beige almond color, especially suitable for warm undertones. I personally love to apply this liquid lipstick as a final coat on top of other colors. If some colour is too bright and highly saturated, combined with 274 will hold down the overall effect and you are able to DIY your own ideal effect! LANCÔME - L'absolu Lacquer Gloss

A multitasking Lip stain that creates a cohesive and harmonious overall look
Lip stain can be used on both lips and cheeks. The multitasking product can save money and minimize the number of products that I have to buy. it is very convenient to bring lip/cheek stain when travelling to avoid heavy packaging. It makes the makeup routine easier. The same colour also creates a cohesive and harmonious overall look. These kinds of products can also minimize the time in choosing the right colour, especially in the morning when I need to be ready quickly. One of my favourite lip stains isYVES SAINT LAURENT - Vinyl Cream Lip Stain #416. It is a high coverage long-wear liquid lip stain. It has the pigmentation of a lipstick and the softness of the cream as well as the shine of the lip gloss. The lip stain is very creamy and even feel like a lip balm. The colour can remain after a few hours talking, eating and drinking. I can simply reapply the colour. The smell is natural, unlike other lip stains that have a very strong scent. The colour is very beautiful. Applying a thin layer of this colour on the lip, the lips have a nice warm taupe shade. when applying a thick layer of this product, it has a beautiful and fabulous chill red. It can also be used on cheeks. The tiny diamond shade of the wand applicator makes the colour pigment beautifully and naturally. I take it with me everywhere because of its multi-functions. Actually, sometime when I am lazy, I even use it as an eye shadow. I have a few tips to apply this colour on the face. It is important to get skin prepared before, such as apply a light moisturizer around the cheek, blend the primer and foundation before applying the lip stain. I usually use fingertips to blend the colour on the cheeks and ensure to blend it quickly. This product allows makeup routine as easy as possible.
Contour can be used as eyeshadow? Lipstick can be used as blush?
These days it is particularly popular that a thing has a variety of uses. For example, I often use a pink lip gloss as a blush or use a contour palette as an eye shadow. This coutour palette can satisfy all girls needs. No matter your skin is fair, medium or deep, you can buy it without hesitation. It has two functions and four colors. The first is the most popular shade which is called Omega. It's brown and can be used to contour our cheekbones and noses. Also, we can use it as a base for eye shadow. It’s perfect for reducing eye puffiness. The second is called Wedge. It is very similar to the third colour. It can be used in our eye sockets. I often mix these four colors and use them as eye shadow for great effect. If you're going to a party, you can also add a little sparkle to make your eye shadow stand out even more. Every morning I find that my complexion is not particularly good, or my skin is very fair but not rosy after applying makeup. The liquid stain I recommend is YVES SAINT LAURENT - Vinyl Cream Lip Stain#212. The color is a little bit pink. Apply two drops to your face and then gently stun your face with a sponge, or with your fingers. Pay attention to the color to be evenly applied. It is softer than normal blush. It cost about $30. Similarly, sometimes lip stains can be used as eyeshadow, but due to the texture of YSL, it is not very convenient to use as eyeshadow. In fact, there are many brown eyeshadow tray can be used on nose or glitter eyeshadow can be used as a highlighter. You can develop more use of makeup.
Bite Amuse Bouche - Virgo
I absolutely love every shade I’ve tried from this brand! I think they are all so beautifully pigmented and I have no complaints. This color is insanely red and my perfect red shade! It lasts long on and doesn’t feather as much as reds usually do on me. this is the only formula for their products, but I bet the new formula will be better! It’s creamy and rich and I love the easy application. I think the packaging is so luxe and sleek, and if there was one lipstick line I could buy everything in, itd be this one! I think they’re still reformulating the new ones to be vegan but the OG are out of stock and $26. I really enjoy that they redid all their products recently! When they release their new shades I will for sure pick some up.

A favourite from YSL!
I’m a sucker for a good lipstick/lip gloss hybrid. It’s super moisturizing and not super opaque. One of my favourites has to be YSL’s volupté tint-in-balm! The shade I have here is #1. These lipsticks smell like mangoes oh my gosh 😍🥭 (talk about yummy). They are super duper moisturizing, which is one of the reasons why I love them so much. The colour is a sheer tint of colour, but it is super buildable which is great - being able to control the intensity of the colour! Oh ya, and the texture 😍 glides onto your lips like butter 🥰 I highly recommend this product to all you girlies out there! You will not be disappointed by this product. In my opinion, I believe it is very much worth the price! Plus, who can resist this beautiful packaging 😍😍🤩 YVES SAINT LAURENT - Volupté Tint-in-Balm Lipstick

BEST LIP PRODUCT EVER 😍
This COLOURPOP - Disney Designer Collection X Colourpop Lux Liquid Lip is a stunning formulation that colourpop came out with. This specific color is from the Disney designer collection that came out and the shade wonder boy is from Megara’s kit. These lip products are unlike anything else that I’ve tried. This is a very warm toned medium plum lipstick but it wears like a gloss and lipstick hybrid. I also feel slightly like a stain because when it dries down even though the color might wear a slightly it leaves a slight bit of a stain on your lips. That being said these are ultra comfortable and decently long wearing plus you can’t beat the six dollar price tag.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY LIP SWATCH
This is Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips 2 lipstick in the shade Dancefloor Princess. It’s a beautiful pinky-nude shade that is reminiscent of Pillowtalk, only less warm-toned, lighter, and a satin finish. It looks great with my light skin and features. Her lipsticks have some of the best formulas on the market, not to mention the most beautiful packaging.Charlotte Tilbury - Hot Lips Lipstick 2

The ONE Lipstick Every Girl Needs in Her Bag
❤️Background I was a hotelier in my past life before I became a full-time freelance writer. Impeccable grooming is one of our priorities to look top-notch and professional at work. Lipstick is a necessary part of our beauty regime. If I were to pick just one make-up product to use at work, it would be a red lipstick. For me, a good lipstick is one that is: Giorgio Armani’s Lip Maestro Lip Stain is truly a god sent, and I have recommended this brand and specific shade of intense classic red to almost all of my colleagues and friends. I am talking about Shade 400 – The Red. It may be hard to believe that this shade works on almost all skin colors. You will instantly see the difference on yourself. If you prefer a less vibrant red color, choose one from up to 31 shades in the same series. ❤️Application The Lip Maestro is a rich and creamy liquid lip color, so it applies like a dream on lips and sets to a demi-matte finish – perfect for a more groomed and put-together look compared to a lip gloss. More importantly, the wear lasts long even after a meal of food and drinks. If you are looking for ONE classic red for day or night, this is the one! For a more casual day look, I swipe a thin layer on the centre of my lips with the applicator and spread it across evenly with a clean middle finger. This gives a lighter matte effect. For a more intense evening look, I apply more and blot the first even layer with a piece of tissue paper before layering another. Doing this almost guarantees no lipstick touch-ups for at least 4 hours! A little goes a long way for this highly recommended lip stain. Try it and share your comments with me whether you like it as much as I do USD38 on Nordstrom

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
