My Best Lip Gloss Awards!
This beauty award troubles me a lot since I have a lot of lip gloss and each one of them has its outstanding features. After a long time of struggle, I choose these three for this award. YSL TATOUAGE COUTURE MATTE STAIN 16—most naked I can say that YSL 16 is the best representative in cameo brown color scheme. This kind of color is pretty naked and natural which makes me look super soft, generous and elegant. Therefore, it can be used in every occasion and I take it with me as long as I go out. Actually, I bought it two years ago and I almost used it up. (You know how difficult it is to use up a tube of lip gloss) CHANEL ROUGE ALLURE INK FUSION 818 TRUE RED—most lasting Whenever I apply CHANEL INK 818 on my lip, I feel like a noble princess. Its color is quite similar to fresh red apples which would make me look younger and more energetic easily. The amazing thing is that it is hydrated and comfortable enough, although it would become matte immediately. However, the reason why I love it so much is that it is the most lasting lip gloss that I have ever used. It seems that the color can cling to my lip firmly without fading no matter I eat or drink. Thus, this one would be my first choice to date. GIORGIO ARMANI LIP MAESTRO 405—brightest GA is my favorite brand among all top cosmetic brands since it offers so many choices on lip color for customers and I recommend GA 405 the most. The color of GA 405 is similar to ripe tomatoes which is a perfect mix of red and orange. Also, it has a naturally glossy finish with soft copper-gold micro-shimmer. When it is applied on my lip, my skin looks fresher, healthier and more vibrant immediately even if I stay up late the night before. In a word, it suits all occasions. Whenever I cannot decide which lip gloss to use, I would choose this one.

Please Have a Cup of Coffee!☕☕💄
L'Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain is a series that I admire very much. So far they have provided more than 37 shades, including metallic, bright, neutral and this moody plum, called I Enjoy. All parts are consistently smooth and hard to be noticed, we will forget that we are wearing it. At the same time, this brand also provides us with more diverse choices. For some high-end brands, if we can't afford it, we can use this brand as a dupe, and the effect is very good. L'ORÉAL - Rouge Signature Matte Liquid Lipstick#116 $7 This is the product most similar toCHANEL - ROUGE ALLURE INK Matte Liquid Lip Colour#176. I think it is the best dupe. The price of Chanel Lip Stain 176 is about $40. At this price, you can buy 6 L'Oreal products. This price is very attractive. In terms of color, both products are very authentic brown. Among them, Chanel adds more earthy tones, while L'Oreal has more brown tones. In terms of texture, Chanel 176 is more shiny, while the matte texture of L'Oreal 116 is more obvious. After being applied to the lips, the color of both will be a little lighter than the color of the paste. At this time, if you wear a white dress, you will be the most beautiful highlight in the crowd! L'Oreal's matte texture is different from traditional products, it will not burden you. Because the oil-in-water formula allows the lips to breathe freely. For best results, we recommend exfoliating the lips before use. Then use the point of the applicator to carefully outline and apply from the center and blend outwards. On the other hand, this color makes the teeth very white, and with the help of the applicator, it is very easy to apply, and it will not outline the outside at all. Sometimes, if you need to, you can apply a few more layers, because just touching the lips will have a watery touch, so a few more layers will not feel unnatural.
Lipsticks: Solid (Creamy) vs. Liquid (Mousse)
Lipsticks come in different textures that can help you achieve different looks. With similar shades, I am still able to switch up the mood by using either a creamy lipstick or a mousse type, depending on my lips’ condition and the occasion. Solid Lipstick: Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipstick #410 Dynamic For a daily and effortless look, I tend to gravitate towards this product because it has an MLBB shade that complements my neutral skin tone really well. It naturally brightens up my face without attracting too much attention to my lips, so I like to use it when I want to emphasize my eye makeup or when I’m feeling lazy and want to go out with a bare face. This lipstick feels very moisturizing and creamy without being too heavy and oily. It glides right onto the lips, and the color payoff is moderate, which helps me to achieve that natural look. However, because of its formula, it is not very long lasting. Nevertheless, it doesn’t really bother me because I find it easier to retouch the lip colors with a solid lipstick as they are easier to blend. Liquid Lipstick: Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour #196 Precieux This product is also in an MLBB shade that is more of a dried rose color with gold shimmers. What is different about this product compared to the Estee Lauder lipstick is that it is in a liquid, mousse form. This gives me a really soft and airy matte finish without drying my lips out, which I absolutely adore. What is more amazing is that it doesn’t emphasize the wrinkles and cracks in my lips, unlike most of the matte lipsticks on the market! This lipstick tends to make me look more mature given my neutral skin tone, which I like when I want to go for a sophisticated look. Because of its special texture and finish, I prefer this one over the solid lipstick.

My longtime obsession with long nails //PICS!🔪
Yup, I’m that girl clickin & clackin on her phone! Sorrrry💁🏻♀️ 💅🏽💅🏿💅🏼💅🏾💅🏻 I’ve been obsessed with crazy long nails since i was a little kid. I got my first set of acrylics probably sophomore year of high school. I was pretty tomboy in high school even though I wore a lot of makeup, they were pretty annoying at first & the dance companies I was in banned fake nails for shows & even practice. I would get sets occasionally in college, but went to art school & they definitely get in the way with certain processes. ♿️ I got severely injured in 2014, when I was 26, & the cuticle biting habit I’ve always had was sooo bad because I literally had nothing to do all day. I was working as a server in California at the time, so I was definitely not allowed to have fake nails or nail polish of any kind. I ended up returning to acrylics full time after I got injured & I could finally stop biting my cuticles! The nails just look so pretty, I felt less eager to mess with them & the nails are thicker than a natural nail so you can’t pick at your skin (or pop pimples with this length! Plus!) 💔 A combination of moving away from my favorite nail tech, ( TONY I LOVE YOU & OH HOW MISS YOU SO! ) & obviously quarantine, forced me to abandon my long fake nails for now. The damage: Getting full acrylic sets & fills pretty much non-stop for almost 6 years, my real nails were not cute, thin & brittle. I was so lucky to have a very talented & meticulous technician for the last 2 of those years. I honestly never had any of the nasty issues some people can face with acrylics. What are acrylics? Acrylic nails are created by first applying a plastic nail extension with glue to part of your nail to add length. Then a powder & liquid acrylic monomer are combined into a sort of “blob of dough” & shaped onto your nails with a brush & air dried. Next they will be further shaped & smoothed with manual & electric files. A GOOD tech will take about 2 hours, not less. I always chose gel polish that’s cured with a UV light on top of my acrylics, but you can also just do regular nail polish. I worked up to this length- they make me feel like myself, know what I mean? But I wouldn’t recommend starting off long if you aren’t used to it. Your natural nails grow out & then in 2-3 weeks you can get what’s called a “fill”, where your polish is removed & a small amount of the monomer is applied to the base of your nail bed & blended into what you already have on your nail. Quarantine: Had my last real set in February... I ordered long press-ons a few times, which I really loved, but they’re just not the same strength-wise. I was actually kinda rough on my nails & rarely broke them. At least when press-ons pop off, you can just glue it back on instead of rushing to the salon! I’ve had fun trying ones with gems & charms! In the past I stuck to solid colors & glitter with acrylics due to the cost & sitting time. IMO the best press-ons are from black owned business, Hawt Nailz!
Charlotte tilbury lipstick
This lipstick has such a follow! I will say the packaging is super luxe and beautiful but the pillow talk color wasn’t my perfect nude. I’ve always struggled to find nude lips that don’t wash me out. I do like the other darker shades pictured here but the original pillow talk is a little chalky and light on my skin tone! I gravitate towards more berry and coral tones than nudes!
Charlotte Tilbury-Pillow Talk Diamonds Lip Topper
THREE lipsticks I’d like to use without makeup
1. Lancome 274 Usually these types of lip gloss are too sticky and don't stay on. So far, I am very impressed with this one. It goes on smoothly, stays on for hours, and at the end of the day my lips feel soft. I also like the slender tube design. It fits in my purse well. It did take a little getting use to the applicator, but it has grown on me. btw 274 this color is forever my best, for it can make my no-makeup face looks so gentle and elegant. 2. CT stoned rose K.I.S.S.I.N.G. formula is my favorite of all of Charlotte's lipsticks. It is very moisturizing and lasts a long time on me. I do not like the dry look that mat lipsticks give, so this is perfect without being glossy. As for the color, it appears pinkish nude on the tutorial video, but it is not in person. It is much warmer... I would call it "a nude with oomph." Very grateful for the lipstick samples included in my order so in the future, I can see the true color on me before buying. 3. Burberry 05 It has matte cream colour with a comforting, whipped texture. The comfortable, non-drying formula keeps lips supple and moisturised during wear, ensuring the colour does not dry, fade or crack. And the color 05 is so amazing that looks so natural but noble. It's now my favorite ; D
BURBERRY-Beauty Liquid Lip Velvet
Dose of colors Stone & Truffle lip sets
DOSE OF COLORS - Limited Edition Stone Set DOSE OF COLORS - Limited Edition Truffle Set I got these 2 sets from Dose Of Colors and I’m so impressed with the formula. The Truffle set being my favorite because I love Nude lips. The lip liner is so buttery and I love how you get differ options of wear with these kits. If you want a matte lip than you can do that, or a glossy lip, or their new Demi matte ‘velvet mousse’ formula which is super soft on the lips and not as drying as a traditional matte liquid lipstick. If you’re like me and you like to use the same lip color multiple times but still want to switch it up this would be a good set for you. These each retail for $39 which is great considering just 1 liquid lip from dose is $18 and here you get 3 different formulas and a lip liner. Pick it up quick through, they’re limited edition 🙊

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Le Nu 70
LOVE this lipstick. The color is the perfect nude pink (most lipsticks translate more pink on me because of my darker pink lips). The finish is incredibly comfortable and flawless and the packaging is absolutely gorgeous. Worth every penny!YVES SAINT LAURENT - Rouge Pur Couture Satin Lipstick

Best Armani Lipstick Dupes – Mac
Armani Beauty gains great attention through the beauty markets. Even the price is at a high level. I think it is worth every penny. This brand always does a great job on each of product. Here, I have a dupe recommend – MAC cosmetics, which also provide great products at a very affordable price. These two lipsticks are mauve color, which brightens up my skin tone. Forget to mention that I'm fair to light skin tone. Armani Beauty Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick $38 Color: 507 Garconne – Mauve Berry Armani #507 is a purple-pink color liquid lipstick. The color is very rich. The texture is lightweight and ultra-thin. It creates a matte finish without too heavy or too thin. And, it is very easy to apply. Mac Satin Lipstick $17 Color: Captive – Pinkish Plum This is a stick lipstick with pink-purple color. The texture of it is really rich and creamy. Color performance is so good. But it's a bit hard to apply. I will recommend wearing a lip primer before applying the lipstick, which will make the application smoothly. Although these two products have a different finish, one for matte and other for satin, the final finish look won't have a great difference. The color of them looks very similar. Though Mac Lipstick #Captive is called as pinkish plum and Armani #507 is described as Mauve Berry, the actual look they present is that captive is more purplish and #507 is more pinkish. Both of them are quite long-lasting and waterproof. I could wear them for more than 5 hours. Armani lipstick did a better job on transfer-proof function. When I wear it, I don't need to refine the make-up after an afternoon tea. Overall, I like both of them. Also, I think both of the brands are professional in makeup products. I will recommend to choose them on your budgets or preference.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk Lipstick
Pillowtalk is a cult favorite for good reason. It’s matte but not drying, and the color looks good on everyone. It’s a MLBB color with a bit more warmth and depth than my natural lip color. Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick
