Lipstick swatch: Bobbi Brown vs. NARS vs. Chanel
When I went shopping monthes before, I happened to try on these two satin finish lip glosses that are similar to Channel's shade 58, but just not as popular. Bobbi Brown Scarlet BOBBI BROWN - BOBBI BROWN Nourishing Lipstick

No cracked lips lipstick💄hydrates + lasts long
BOBBI BROWN - BOBBI BROWN Nourishing Lipstick Color: Claret Don’t hydrate much & your lips reflect just that? This may be a great lipstick for you. It’s a moisturizing lipstick made w essential oils such as those from avocado, jojoba, and babassu. I was looking to replace a Makeup Forever lipstick I had received as a sample from Sephora. My search ended after I found out that the product was discontinued. So I set out to find something somewhat similar and I found this lipstick. This lipstick is even better: ￼￼￼￼￼￼Long-lasting considering that it is a lipstick (but not an all-day wear but still pretty long). ￼￼￼￼￼￼Moisturizes- hydrates! no cracked lip look (win!) ￼￼￼￼￼￼Gloss- I don’t tend to like glossy lipsticks but this makes your lips look so plump without the shiny mess ￼￼￼￼￼￼Buildable- you can use it as sheer or early pigmented as you’d like I wear this lipstick for both my makeup-no makeup days and on my nights out since I can wear it sheer or downright bold.
Lip Gloss or Lipstick?
CHANEL Rouge Coco Gloss Moisturizing Glossimer - 754 Opulence This is a lip gloss from CHANEL with a very beautiful colour. I really like this strawberry red colour and it has many shiny glitters within the gloss, which makes the colour even prettier. The finish is medium-to-high coverage, indeed ultra-shiny and glossy, and leaves lips visibly plump and smooth. However, the texture is horrible. It’s very sticky just like melt candies. The gloss feels heavy and thick on my lips and that’s why it makes lips look plump and smooth And I don’t feel being moisturized at all. The applicator doesn’t work for me. It’s big and round makes me hard to apply the gloss precisely. BOBBI BROWN Nourishing Lip Color Oil-Infused Shine - Claret I like this lipstick about its shade and also texture. This lipstick has a warm-toned rosy red, which gives a very elegant and gentle impression and I think this kind of colour works for every skin tones and also be a good choice for daily use as it’s very natural. The texture is very creamy and nourishing. It is more like a lip tint balm but the colour can be built up. It feels good on my lips, hydrating and not too sticky, and also looks moist and shimmering. It’s also easy to apply at any time even without a mirror. I would say the colour and finish of CHANEL gloss is very impressive, but I don’t like the texture. Instead, I give BOBBI BROWN credit for its comprehensive performance.

My “no makeup” makeup look!!
Here it is!!! My simple everyday, quick, whip it together “no makeup “ 💄 look!!! No foundation! Very light concealer if I’m super sleepy looking.... just brows , lashes, cheeks, and lips 👄! After my skincare routine I apply some primer , only around eyes, if I am using concealer. ￼But! Generally I start on my brows. I usually use billion dollar brows - Brow Powder But I received item - Brow Chow in my Ipsy glam Bag and wanted to try it, no worries 😉 I will do a separate review for later. I also use WANDER BEAUTY - Frame Your Face Precise Brow Gel to keep my brow hairs in place and healthy! Then I apply my tarte - SEA Surfer Curl Volumizing Mascara which is great for a delicate lash look. ❌I curled them too I swear! 🤗😂 ❗️Not in the picture but I did dab some OFRA - OFRA Highlighter in glazed donut on my inner corners for some added brightness! ￼Then I use my go to blush MILANI - MILANI Baked Blush And flesh - Flesh to Flesh Highlighting Powder for a soft delicate glow. ￼Last I barely apply my NARS - NARS Lipstick in Tolede and Top it with my new fave gloss!!!! The ILLAMASQUA - Loaded Lip Polish in clear time add shine!!! And that’s it! Quick 5 minute glam! SAHM approves!! 🌟🤗🤗
Worth it for $10?
I saw this Sephora favorites beauty icons set for $10 and had to have it. It’s really affordable and I wanted t try these out and see if it’s really worth the $10. Youth to the people superfood cleanser- I used this twice and omg I love it! I love the scent of this, it subtle and it smells kinda like lemongrass with green tea. It has a fresh green scent. I’m actually considering buying the full size and using the 15% off. It’s $36 for 8oz. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser Living proof restore repair hair mask- after using this I felt my hair smoother and detangle easier. I’ve only used this one time and so far it’s nice. If I end up liking this a lot maybe I’ll buy this. It’s $38 for 6.7oz which isn’t too bad but on the expensive side. Living proof. - Restore Mask Treatment Laneige water bank moisture cream- I really enjoyed this. It made my skin smoother and didn’t leave it tight at all. Its a little bit thicker than I thought (in a good way) since it says water cream I thought it was going to be gel or a light water feel but it’s the opposite. It’s feels very moisturizing. It’s $38 for 1.6oz. It’s more expensive than I thought. LANEIGE - Water Bank Moisture Cream Nudestix nudies all over face bronze color- I got this in the shade sunkissed. It’s a nice color but at times it doesn’t blend as quick as I want. Probably won’t buy this as I don’t need bronzers. $32 for 0.25 oz NUDESTIX - Nudies All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow Nars lipstick in the shade Tolède- it’s a really beautiful shade of pink. It’s a rosy pink color and it’s great for going out and for work. I will definitely buy the full size of this. $26 for a 0.12 oz NARS - NARS Lipstick Viktorrolf flowerbomb perfume sample- it smells nice but I don’t want to drop $85 for a 1oz bottle. VIKTOR&ROLF - Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum I would say this $10 kit is 100% worth it to me. There’s so many goodies to try out and if you don’t like most of it it’s ok cause you didn’t spend too much on it.
Why do all of my fave lipsticks look the same?
You know you are a true lipsticks lover when you have many lipsticks with same shade but kinda different. Do you know what I mean ?? They are not the same. 🤣 I was looking to find my favourite lipsticks colour and found out almost all of my faves looks the same. Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick this lipstick is cult favourite for a reason. This is so versatile you can either use it as a daily wear or even with more formal outfits. This just looks amazing and I love that it stay on for longer. Not all day but still it lasts pretty good hours. CHANEL - ROUGE ALLURE VELVET EXTREME Intense Matte Lip Colour The most favourite lipstick in my collection. I bought this limited edition colour a while back and I can’t be more happy with this purchase. I wear it so much it has become my signature color lolll HUDA BEAUTY - Power Bullet Matte Lipstick Throwback Collection these lipsticks are so rich and pigmented. This is probably my most fave from huda beauty collection. I have tried their liquid lipsticks as well but I like these bullet lipsticks more. lilah b. - Divine Duo Lip & Cheek this multi tasking gorgeous looking pebble is so handy and I always carry it with it. I mostly use it as a blush because this colour looks so good on skin and gives natural glow to skin😍.
I picked up two of ctilburymakeup New Hot Lips lipstick recently, I mean JK Magic...... I kind of had too! The packaging of these lipsticks are seriously beautiful, also they are refillable and I believe there are 5 cases to collect? The colour is the most perfect pink. I also got Glowing Jen which is a bit darker. Charlotte Tilbury has seriously became one of my favourite makeup brands.
Charlotte Tilbury-Hot Lips Lipstick
Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip
This is a moisturizing liquid lipstick with an almost balmy, natural finish. It’s described as a rich rose, which I’d say is fairly accurate. It’s almost my natural lip shade but a little darker, which makes this a nice daytime lipstick. It comes in a variety of shades, all of them are beautiful but I’ve only ever tried this one. A little goes such a long way. One of the best natural looking lipsticks I’ve tried. BOBBI BROWN - Crushed Liquid Lipstick

My New Favorite Lipstick
So I’ll admit I’m a sucker for the Kardashian products sometimes. I actually got this KKW beauty kit on sale after Christmas. I had used a couple Kylie Cosmetic items before and actually really liked them. This kit was also a pleasant surprise. This particular lip shade is the Nude 3 Creme lipstick. I ordered it online so the color wasn’t really as it looked in the picture but I did still like it. The formula is really creamy and feels so smooth when you put it on. I also feel like it’s hydrating when I have it on. It’s perfect when you top it with a little of the KKW rose gold gloss too! Individually, these lipsticks are $18. I would say they’re worth splurging and trying at least once especially if you’re a lipstick fanatic. KKW BEAUTY - Nude Crème Lipstick
KKW BEAUTY-Nude Crème Lipstick
I’m absolutely obsessed with these Catkin lipsticks. They are a masterpiece starting from the box to the lipstick itself. The packaging and presentation of the lipsticks is just marvellouse. Catkin Cosmetics adds Chinese elements on the outer package making the package so exquisite and unique. The lipsticks are created with a simple, healthy formula of Phytosterol, Jojoba seed oil, Olive oil and Vitamin E, that makes the formula so creamy. The all super creamy and moisturizing, even the matte ones and super long-lasting. I'm obsessed with these lipsticks! Definitely recommend them. It is great to give as a gift and there's no need to wrap it up because the box is so beautiful.
This matte lip is an okay for me- The color is super pretty and natural looking but the texture is a bit dry and patchy unless your lips are super smooth and hydrated. Overall it’s a good product and lasts a while on the lips but probably best if used in the summer months when your lips aren’t super dry smashbox - Be Legendary Matte Lipstick

Lipstick or liquid lipstick?
I always prefer liquid lipsticks: in my lipstick collection, liquid lipsticks take up about 80% of the total. Because I find them never chap my lips and super long-lasting, never embarrassing me when I need to wear makeup all day long and have no time to touch up. BUT! This pair of lipsticks I am going to talk about today is quite different. Armani Lip Maestro in the shade 405 The color is so attractive and I think it can go with every skin tone. Armani is also always one of my favorite beauty brands, and they have so many classic shades and textures in lipsticks. However, although I like the shade very much, it is frustrating that it is not transfer-proof: it won’t stick to my lips! The advantage is that it won’t dry out, and it is really pigmented. Just one brush would cover the original color of your lips. Gucci Rouge À LÈVRES MAT in the shade 505 It is from a rather new collection from Gucci and honestly, it’s my first makeup product from this brand. It has a floral scent and it lasts quite long, so if you are sensitive to smells, you’d better steer away from it or try it out before you buy it. I like the packaging a lot. And it has got a matte finish, it’s pigmented and long-wear is not a problem anymore for lipsticks! I also find it easy to blend so you can make the edge more blurred to look softer. Overall, I am quite surprised to find this lipstick from Gucci could last longer than the liquid lipstick from Armani. But I still highly recommend them since the color is so great and pigmented, and these two brands are steady producers of high-quality products. They are totally worth it!
