My kind of Limited Edition
I bought this lipstick in Miniso. Not many people still know of this store and not many states have Miniso so some of the products found in this store could be counted as Limited Edition or at least I count it that way 🤩 This Pink Panther lipstick i bought from Miniso, I was going to just use it as a cute decoration but after applying it on my lips I really came to like it. It’s really pigmented and has a creamy formula. It doesn’t turn Matt but the feeling on my lips after putting it on is really nice and hydrating. But really, the pigment is 🔥 ***The picture doesn’t show the pigment as well as when you see it in person.
HG nude lip for deep skin: NARS powermatte 💄
i was so delighted when i found this brownish rose shade called ‘somebody to love’ by NARS. it is so still difficult to find a perfect nude shade for brown skin - not too chalky, not too pink, not too dark, not too much contrast with my natural lip color. NARS - Powermatte Lip Pigment is a long-wearing product - I’ve had it on for 5 hrs today with no touch-ups. it is neither drying nor moisturizing - just kind of neutral. i usually reapply lip products throughout the day (even if it’s just lip balm), and i love that i don’t really need to think about this one. i purchased this for $26 at sephora and i will definitely repurchase. one of my 2020 goals is to clean out my makeup and get down to less than 10 lip colors, and this will be one of them.

Creamy Matte Lips
Let’s get into clean beauty! This creamy matte lip crayon is BITE - Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon The application is extremely smooth and long wearing as well. To be honest I didn’t realize it was a matte lip crayon because it went on with a shimmery finish. However, when I drank or ate food it barely transferred (which truthfully I was shook). The color popped severely against my brown skin and it’s hard to come by lippies that are universal. Let’s get into this smell though, it’s formulated with pomegranate oil, wild african mango, and orange peel wax (sounds almost good to eat)! As I was applying it, I began thinking it should be a perfume because it smelled so delightful. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend and I’m ready to swatch more colors!

Lips Like Kim K 👄
I think I’ve tried every neutral matte lip ever made & this one knocks them all out of the water. Idk about y’all but I just want a solid Kim K nude and I just don’t love the formula of her products so I’ve been on the hunt and finally found winners. It is borderline maddening to try to find a nude lip that doesn’t wash out my light complexion but these are ITTTT. 📍My Skin: light with warm/pink undertones (aka ya girl is pinky/red always which is so annoying bc a lot of nude lips have rosy hues that don’t play well) 📍Claims: Smashbox claims this lipstick is “ultra-comfortable, non-drying, weightless feel. It’s also waterproof & stays plush for 8 hours & won’t feather.” 📍Dolllas: $24 for a 0.13 tube but I actually have had the color fair game for a year and the formula hasn’t dried out & I wear it pretty often! 📍Recomendation: this is like the only matte lip I’ll wear anymore, sooo good! But you GOT TO prep your lips! Like every matte lip ever made, this product obv dries down and can be drying. I kind of hate that brands say things like “non-drying!!” because we know that’s just not true based on the nature of the product. However, this lipstick does not pill and flake the way others do!! I only have the nude colors (swatched with names in photos) but I have heard the reds or darker pigments are more flakey so I can only speak for the colors I have! It definitely doesn’t feather and the applicator makes it easy to use as liner first & then fill in! The color has solid staying power and as long as you avoid greasy foods (bc nothing can withstand those burgers ok) actually stays on through eating/drinking!!! Color I’m wearing in photo is Stepping Out (deep nude) smashbox - Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick #CherieCreator

Visual Lip Filler - Draw Fake BIG Lips
I have really thin lips. Literally really really THIN. I have been practiced for so long on creating big lips. Mostly with liners or lip gloss that would visually make my lips look bigger. Recently I just found thick new technique of drawing lips with statin tint, to create fake big lips. It is super easy and I hope you like it. First by drawing a line on your bottom lip to outline the shape that you want your lips to stay. My bottom lip is really thin so I normally go a little bit over outside my own lip line. Then use your gloss to create a vertical line symmetric to your lip bead. On the top of the lip, draw an “x” to set the outline of the cupid. Connect the corner of the lips to the tips of “x” and the bottom with the horizontal lines, fill in the blank to finish the look FOR $6 this lippie is PHENOMENAL! COLOURPOP - ILUVSARAHII X Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip COLOURPOP - Ultra Matte Lip I personally really love these liquid lipsticks! it has a spectacular velvety texture. They all dry completely matte and aren't horribly uncomfortable throughout the day. I also give a little swatch on the back of my hand just to show you what the formula is like. This formula is very much like the kylie cosmetics one i just find that it tends to be more drying on my lips! It kind of feel like the YSL matte gloss but kind of has a more cushiony feel to it. More light weighted but still, very pigmented. The YLS one is kind of more like a dry stain feeling on it after it’s kind of dry down. This literally looks like my lips are made of velvet. Super light weighted. They do have a transfer to them but not like an obnoxious amount. I definitely needed a serious makeup wipe to remove it afterwards. These two colors are just amazing and I can see myself wearing these the most. With lipliner, I think my lip would look even fuller. I really like this series a lot. It kind of give me that K-POP lip wear if you only applied a little in the center and just blotted your lips a little to create that soft ombre lip look. If you are interested in that I will follow up with another post on how to create ombre lips with different types of lipsticks.
