Battle of the rose gold lippy
A bonus about finding a great lipstick colour that suits your skin tone is also finding one in a cute rose gold ribbed metal packaging that you can show off when applying to your lips. Chances are, you know exactly what Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup line looks like. These iconic lipsticks are an Instagram staple, with their ridged, rose gold tubes and engraved caps. These lipsticks are a cult trend and because of their luxury look and established high end brand they come with the price tag too. That is until, Makeup Revolution brought out an almost identical looking range at almost ¼ of the price tag - so how do they differ? Charlotte Tilbury - Pillow Talk Diamonds Lip Topper

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Picks 💄
I’m not super fond of putting on a lot of makeup and getting all done up because well that’s a lot of energy that I really don’t have. 😂 That said, I do enjoy a nice lip color from time to time, especially if I need a little more self confidence, ya know? I really enjoy these particular Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, from the beautiful gold packaging to the shade range and creamy texture, and even the names because who doesn’t love a good name. These are my favorite lipsticks, and I pretty much always have one of them with my. My absolute favorite of these is the Pillow Talk, a Charlotte Tilbury holy grail.... the texture is velvety and soft, it’s a nice subtle pink nudish matte finish and layers well with a hydrating lip balm or gloss. I LOVE this lipstick (even though I absolutely hated the lip gloss) and it has continued to be my go to color. While I absolutely loved this lip, I did notice that my lips really needed to be moisturized before I put on this lipstick or it looked too cakey and felt uncomfortable- but not a big deal. The only turn off for me about this shade (and all of the CT lip products) is the price for a fairly traditional lipstick - I think they could lower the price a tad and still make a profit but I do love it still. 💄 Charlotte Tilbury - Pillow Talk Diamonds Lip Topper
Mood Boosting Fall Lippies w/ lip swatches!
As the temps start to drop and the days get shorter, I look for anything to give me a mood boost. I find that adding a fun lippie can improve my mood, whether I’m bare-faced or rocking natural or glam makeup looks. Here’s a few of my fall faves: Too Faced - Melted Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick Limited Edition “gingerbread man”: This was part of the melted matte line and was released for a holiday collection a few years ago. It did come back last year. I’m not sure about this year, but there is a similar looking shade available from the brand this year called “pumpkin”. The formula is thin, comfortable (use a balm underneath), and long-wearing with some transfer. This burnt orange shade is so beautiful - I always get compliments when I wear it! $20ish FENTY BEAUTY - Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color “uncensored”: This is very long-wearing despite transferring onto everything - it never looks touched! You must be patient applying because the formula is liquidy and immediately stains. It has a comfortable matte finish. This is a red that would look amazing on all skin tones. I advise getting a mini (sometimes in Fenty holiday sets) because a full size has so much product and mine recently expired (hence no lip swatch - it smells awful now). I intend to repurchase. $25 REVOLUTION - Renaissance Lipstick in “luxe”: This is a comfortable creamy, matte lipstick that screams fall. It’s a warm brown with reddish-orange undertones. Great price point. This would be great for a wide variety of skin tones, too. The packaging is also stunning, which adds to the luxe (pun intended) experience. It fades nicely. I also like to wear this lightly blotted on my lips. $6.50 ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in “heathers”: This is a pretty drying matte liquid lip formula, so prep your lips well. The color is so worth it - it’s a gorgeous, long-wearing oxblood red. These sometimes go on sale BOGO (which is how I got mine) so be on the lookout because I’m not sure this is worth $20 on its own. Want a drugstore dupe? NYX cherry skies is almost spot on for about $7. BITE - Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick in “cassava”: This discontinued liquified lipstick is a deep plum-berry. It’s so comfortable on the lips and very opaque. Because it doesn’t dry down, it does transfer onto everything and fades faster (but still several hours of wear). I wish Bite hadn’t discontinued these, but I do recommend their lip crayons and amuse bouche bullet lipsticks. Bite usually offers sets, and they have a lab in Toronto and LA to create your own custom lipstick. You *may* be able to find this or other shades in this formula at TJ Maxx/Marshall’s. All brands are cruelty-free, and Bite is 100% vegan. #CheriePartner
🌸 Blossom Pink Lips: Revlon or NARS?
Pink lips are beautiful if you want to amp up a nude look. I love the color so much, I didn’t realize I picked up two versions of it. So I compared them, and wrote a review to guide you below. 🌸 Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse in Devotion ($7.99) This lippie isn’t actually matte when you first apply it. It’s shiny and creamy, making it more comfortable on your lips than the NARS alternative. After eating and wearing it through the a day, it turned matte. It’s like you have to peel off the first layer to get to the real finish. At that point, the lippie felt more like a stain. But I really liked that because I didn’t have to worry about reapplying. Watch out- Putting on too much of it can make your lips peel. Use this one with a light hand. 🌷 NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in Walk the Line ($26) This lipstick dries down quickly to a true matte. Like most liquid lipsticks, it’s very drying. I actually like to mix this product with balm to keep my lips soft. Otherwise, it does last throughout the day. And like Revlon, it also keeps your lips stained even after a full meal. This one is a pinch more nude than Revlon’s. You can’t tell at first glance, but might if you’ll be wearing it to a meeting. 🌿 Final Thoughts 🌿 This one was hard. But I have to say I preferred Revlon’s because I didn’t have to add any moisturizer to it. I still love the NARS product, and find the color more appropriate for daily wear. But the Revlon option feels so soft, it makes my lips feel like a pillowy rose.

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.

‘Sephora Give Me Some Nudes Set’ - Worth It? 🤷
I love a nude lip – it’s a go-to for me, whether my makeup is simple for the everyday or all-out glam. I picked up the Sephora ‘Give Me Some Nudes’ Lip Kit recently, as it features five big-brand nude lip products, all in different textures and finishes – perfect for a nude-lip aficionado like me. In the kit, you receive a full-size HUDA BEAUTY Liquid Matte Lipstick in Trendsetter; a mini MAKE UP FOREVER Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick in 105; a full-size stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Carmello; a medium-size Buxom Lip Polish in Dolly; and a tiny Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick in Beach Babe. In terms of the products I liked – the Buxom lip-gloss has a beautiful shimmer, and has become the perfect gloss for taking on nights out: it’s thick and doesn’t dry out too quickly, and makes a nice alternative for my usual matte liner. The Tarte lipstick is super cute, and a lovely light nude: again, this is a lipstick I reach for to go inside my clutch. The HUDA liquid lip is extremely drying, and a very dark, ashy nude – almost verging on a purple. It doesn’t suit me at all, and unfortunately is left gathering dust: a shame for such a big brand name. Again, the Stila lip isn’t the right shade for me: it’s a shame that the full-size products aren’t something I’d reach for. The Make Up Forever mini is fine, and I pop it in my handbag if I’m nipping out – but it’s never something I’d use everyday. Is the kit worth it? I enjoyed trying all the different brands, but I think for the $60 price tag, if you’re not keen on the full-size products – or some of the minis – it’s a risky gamble. Personally, I wouldn’t buy again – sorry, Sephora!
Long lasting challenge!
The tarte sea color splash lipstick in island life is a long wearing pigment, rich lipstick that’s offered in an array of creamy shades! Color Splash Lipstick offers intense pigment with buttery-smooth conditioners for moisture-rich, long-lasting, matte color that won’t bleed. It’s formulated with antioxidant-rich marine plant extracts to help make lips look firmer, fuller, and smoother. This lipstick is offered in 24 shades so you can switch up your lip color as often as you change your mood! I absolutely love using this lipstick, it is the perfect nude shade and gives you a very comfortable wear! It is so creamy and doesn’t dry out my lips! This product wears fantastic throughout the day! I had this lipstick on for over 12 hours and I eat with it on, I worked most of the day, and I worked out, and through all of that it only lost a little bit of tint! But that is amazing, I definitely expected it to lose some tint considering I eat with it on, which is amazing! My skin is very dry and this didn’t make my lips any more dry, and my skin tone is light medium! tarte - Sea Color Splash Lipstick

Kylie LIP GLOSS Review + NYX DUPES
Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner is one of fastest growing beauty brands in the world. Her infamous "Lip Kit," consisting of a matching liquid lipstick and lip liner is one of my favorite products. The matte liquid lipstick is so beautiful. However, it's hard to buy this brand because it sells online. I would like to introduce one of Kylie’s beautiful neutral mid-tone nude color “literately” and it dupe NYX lingerie17.The two lipsticks have beautiful formula. They both wear for really long time and dry matte and look like the same exact packaging, even hard to tell the difference.The package of Kylie is cute with little dripping marks on the tube. Customers can see the color from the tube. When applying, it could be evenly and easily applied. But I need to rub my lips and it dried out quite quickly. The formula is smoothly running. It is pretty hydrating.NYX’s texture is much creamier, thicker and less runny than Kylie. The formula is incredible as well, very silky, creamy and smoothly. It dries down a very similar finish with Kylie. It presents cute nude shade and not sticky at all. However, it is a little bit patchy when I put it on my hand and smells like chemically while Kylie having a decent scent of vanilla cake.I recommend NXY lingerie to customers who cannot buy Kylie. The price of NYX is $7 dollar while $15 dollars for Kylie gloss. The price for Kylie is acceptable for its color and texture and NXY’s lingerie is really beyond my expectations for its cheap price.
