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!
Makeup products: liquid or solid?
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mini Lipstick Set
YVES SAINT LAURENT - Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Mini Set YSL has been a brand that I’ve always trusted and have always loved their products. So when they came out with a mini lipstick set, I just had to get it and give it a try. It comes with four lipsticks, colors are predetermined, so thats a bummer because you can’t chose the color you’d prefer. However, the lipsticks are very good. First, the packaging is phenomenal. The case that the lipstick is encased in is gorgeous and has an extremely luxurious feel and look to it. Its a very reflective gold color and the metal material is cool to the touch. I love putting it on my makeup desk just to look at it, it’s like eye candy. The lipsticks itself is very good. The texture and moisturized feeling of the lipstick is great and the application is very easy. If you look up the lipsticks full size (the ones that come in the set are mini sizes), you can see that it comes with a very big variety of color, so there’s a color for everyone. Despite how great the lipstick is, I would not be buying the set again because the colors are not my preferred colors. I do love the lipstick, so I’ll definitely be getting more, I just won’t be getting the set. I’d rather purchase the full size and get the option to chose the desired color that I want.
YVES SAINT LAURENT-Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick Mini Set
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
smashbox-Be Legendary Matte Lipstick
This lipstick is really nice for people who have a dryer lip type and want more of a sheen color to the lips without high pigment It has a really nice reflect/shine which makes the lips look juicy and plump! The texture is smooth and just a tiny bit sticky but great overall! MAC - Cremesheen lipstick
UD VICE LIPSTICK SHEER SWATCH
This is my favorite lipstick to throw on and go. Because it’s a sheerer formula, it can go with any look. The shade Morning After (pictured here) is a neutral-toned light-to-medium pink. The formula is super comfortable as it is a sheer lipstick - it provides a light shine and lots of moisture. I don’t see people talking about this lipstick line often, but it’s not to be missed! URBAN DECAY - Vice Lipstick

Favourite Lipstick? MAC’s Velvet Teddy
This shade was theoretically supposed to be perfect for me but unfortunately it did not work as well for me in all aspects. I first bought this bc Velvet Teddy was such a highly raved about shade that I really wanted to try. Plus, it came in a mini size which was always a bonus, but unfortunately did not work out so well 😭 Firstly, this shade was WAY too pink for me. I have a light skin tone so theoretically this was supposed to work for me, but this pulled so much pinker on my lips than it does in the tube, which is a shame! I also felt that this formula was so much drier than my other matte lipsticks i.e Charlotte Tilbury! I think I only used this a few times before I gave up on it. Thankfully I only got this in a mini size so I don’t feel so bad about wasting product 🥳 Would I recommend this? I don’t think so. I have quite a few other lipsticks in the same shade range that are much more comfortable to wear. However, I think if you want to try this out the mini works great for a start! It also helps that most of their more popular shades have the mini size so you can feel free to try 2 or 3 minis for the price of 1 full sized lippie! MAC - MAC Matte Lipstick
