Some awesome red lip products 💋
Speaking of red lips, it is a symbol of elegant French women. For me, I love wearing red lips when I go for a party, take photos while traveling or just don’t want to have too much eye makeup but still need to look confident. And here are three of my favorite red lip products that can be used all around the year. The first one is the slim matte lipstick from Yves Saint Laurent, #21-Rouge Paradoxe. It is a red color with blue undertones, which will make me look brighter. And the super slim, square shape will help to draw a clean lip line and achieves a neat finish. The packaging is really fancy, using YSL iconic gold mixed with matte black. I really love the formula of this collection—creamy, long wearing and really pigmented. I usually use it when I have all black outfits and the red lip will be the spotlight. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Rouge Pur Couture the Slim Matte Lipstick

Some NARS love 💕
I love me some good ol NARS. I received the NARS - Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil originally as samples. I loved the color and how long they lasted on my lips. It became a repurchase. The NARS - Powermatte Lip Pigment was also a sample. I love how the wand made application easy. However, the color that was sent seemed way too dark for my lips (I’m more of a pink and bold red lip kind of girl). But that is just my own personal opinion. I just received a sample of their gloss in my recent Sephora haul, results TBD. I’ll let you guys know how it goes. I do love this brand and use other products of theirs. What’s something you love by them? 🙏🏻❤️
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!
YSL Slim #12 Nu Incongru 💄 👍This is one of my favorite lipsticks for daily use. It is super easy to apply. The matte texture can give a full coverage to the lips and the warm color immediately pops up. It is very friendly for fair and medium skin tone. Not sure if dark or olive skin tone can use this one as well. 👎Color will be easily wiped off when eating. The SLIM series also have a dozen of other colors and cost $39 each.
Do you like the shades?
bareMinerals - Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick Easy application, very creamy, very nice colour selection. However, for some reason the longevity is poor on me, very high transfer and I also find it quite drying despite its creamy texture.This formula wasn't very hydrating so my lip wrinkles become more sightful. 💋💋 I got 3 shades-Notorious is the bestseller and the other 2 shades are beautiful too. 💄Notorious is a perfect pinky-brown shade. Neutral color for everyday natural looking makeup. You can apply a thin layer for a nice everyday natural looking makeup or go more intense with a dark layer and just looks so glamorous. 💄Kitty is sooo beautiful nude pink color with a little orange . This is great color for the spring and summer to compliment any bright look. 💄Panko is a spiced coral that looks extra plump and shiny on the lips. Prefect for a fan of warmer nudes.

Favourite Lipstick: Boys & Girls Ultra (Sheer)
This sheer formula is GORGEOUS! I love Tom Ford’s Boys & Girls lipsticks because 1) I never finish lipsticks so these minis are just the right size and 2) they have SO many shade and formula variants; it’s so fun to collect them all! Plus the clutch sized lipsticks are so luxe. I love it. Currently out of all the formulas and shades I think this is my favourite. Ultra is a sheer but warm toned dark pinky nude that looks very nice on me! I think this formula is the most moisturising out of all the shades but it also doesn’t last very long. It’s kind of like a tinted lip balm but with less nourishing properties. If you ask me I think this formula is the one I would recommend to people the most. I like the other formulas but this one feels a little more natural and easier to pull off. Tom Ford has some wacky shades that don’t suit everyone so this formula might be easier to ease into some of the brighter shades. At $34 for a mini lipstick this might not be as worth it as other full sized ones but to me it’s not too bad - seeing as how I don’t finish the full sized anyway.

Tom Ford’s Indian Rose Lipstick
Tom Ford’s Indian Rose Lipstick is an iconic rose shade that everyone should own. It’s a neutral pink rose with a slight shimmer that is ideal for everyday wear. The shimmer in Indian Rose doesn’t show up on my lips, but helps add dimension. Ingredients like soja seed extract, brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. I used this lipstick for my wedding day look, and paired it with the Tom Ford Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss in Gratuitious.

Well loved matte lip ✨
I absolutely love this matte lip pencil in the shade cruella. It’s definitely a really matte lip but it doesn’t dry out my lips. It’s not the most moisturizing pencil but it’s pretty good. I really like that if I apply this as a lip liner before I fill in my lips, it doesn’t feather out like some liquid lips and it stays put all day(besides eating and drinking which all lipsticks do). Sometimes if I don’t want the intensity of this color but still want the shade I apply lip balm first then apply a little bit of this color to the middle of my lips and blend it out. Then I add some gloss on top and it looks super cute. Definitely one of my favorite lipsticks. 💄✨✨
NARS-Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil
This is a go to lipstick for me at the moment. It's been my fall color of choice lately. Its a smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in the color Rouge A Leavers Off Script Matte. I'm normally a liquid lip girl! I have been needing something that is a bit more moisturizing & this is so smooth and creamy! The formula is amazing! It helps keep my lips hydrated! It last a long time too! It's a win for me!

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Review 💄💋
Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick Shade: Pillow Talk Intense A bit late to the game but this was one of my first Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks! I can see what the hype is all about! The formula is very comfortable on the lips (I personally like the matte revolution formula more- see below for my comments). That being said, I absolutely love this deeper berry-brown shade. It’s the perfect shade for autumn and gets me so excited for the fall so I can wear this everyday! This is also one of my first lipsticks on the more brown end of the spectrum but think that this color would look good on any skin tone! I’ve always been more of a deep red berry type of person. I docked a star since this lipstick comes with a hefty price tag and while the color is unique and absolutely beautiful, the formula isn’t especially unique. There is a slip to it once it’s on my lips and I feel like it doesn’t have a long staying power. Overall, I think if I am going to buy another lipstick from CT, I will probably go for the matte revolution line. I hope they make this color in the matte revolution line, I would definitely buy on a heartbeat! The rose gold packaging is also beautiful and looks great when on display! Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick Lunar New Year - Limited Edition Shade: Magic Red Now onto the next review! I love the matte revolution line - so much that I already have three colors added to my Sephora wishlist! I’m on a low-buy/no buy this year, so I’m shopping my stash for the time being but can’t wait to use up my products right now so that I can try more new things! This matte formula is non-drying and very comfortable on the lips - it doesn’t feel like I have anything on at all! The bullet of this one seems to be stiffer/harder than the K.I.S.S.I.N.G line but I felt like this one was honestly easier to apply. I originally got this limited edition color since it seemed like it was going to be a deeper berry red - but once I applied it on my lips, it was actually more of a brighter red, perfect for Lunar New Year. Definitely lives up to its name! I love the idea of this red for the big holiday in Asia! Sure, it might be a marketing strategy (which clearly worked on me...) but it is also nice to see that brands recognize this cultural holiday. Definitely will repurchase in a different color once my low buy/no buy is over. This is one of the best matte lipsticks out there.

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
