My Lipstick Awards!
I choose these three lipsticks as my favorites according to different situations after comparing and struggling for a long time since I have lots of lipsticks, and each of them is unique. TOM FORD LIP COLOR 15 WILD GINGER—for outing The texture of TOM FORD lipstick is really amazing since it has high color saturation and it is also creamy and moist. The color of TF 15 WILD GINGER is a wonderful mix of red and orange, which can easily make me look younger and more energetic. Trust me, it is the most suitable lipstick for outing and traveling. ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Lipstick/Rouge 260 ECCENTRIC—for dating The color of ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Lipstick 260 ECCENTRIC is fantastic pink, which can make me look super soft and elegant. My boyfriend always compliments that I am so romantic and attractive once I use this one in dating. Believe it or not, this lipstick is the most perfect one for dating since it is generally challenging for boys to understand the lip color. In addition, it is continuously moisturized throughout the day, although I always apply it thickly. MAC AMPLIFIED LIPSTICK DUBONNET—for daily life For me, MAC DUBONNET is the most frequently used lipstick. The color of this one is a marvelous mix of red and brown. I can say that MAC DOBONNET is the best representative in a reddish brown color scheme. It is so easy-matching that you can easily show your disposition. Besides, what fascinates me most is that it contributes to covering my lip lines to some extent. In conclusion, if I cannot decide which lipstick to use, I would pick up this one in the end. Believe me, and please buy it now without hesitation.
Blankety - MAC
This was one of the first lipsticks I have bought from MAC and will probably be my last. I loved the colour, the creamy buttery texture when I swatched it in store, I had to get it. However when I tried it on at home, it was so chalky? I’m not sure if it’s the specific shade I got or what is was, but it kept sinking into my dry lips, the cracks on my lips and I was just having a super hard time with it! I was so disappointed, I really wanted to like it. Til this day I still think this colour is super pretty as you can see from the swatch. I don’t recommend these lipsticks to you guys unless you have had prior experience and they were great. I give it two stars, +1 for packaging and +1 for the shade, but that’s about it! MAC - Amplified Lipstick
My lipstick 101
Lipstick is something that you never get enough! I mean, each of them has different shades, texture, and you can use them to create countless looks matching with your makeup. How can we say no! ◇ YSL Vernis A Levres Water Satin #613 Love this one!! I have recommended this to many friends and I introduce it to them as “like a cup of strawberry milkshake”. Though it seems to have a dark shade that’s more burgundy than red, it still makes your lip looks soft and tender. The credit should give to its texture. This new formula designed by YSL is super sheer that it's almost unobservable if you only apply one layer. By saying so I don't mean that this lipstick is difficult to get pigmented, instead you can easily build up the color as much as you want depends on how many layers you wanna reapply (and it won't get cakey and sticky!) Really think this product change my mind for lipstick satin. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Vernis à Lèvres Water Stain Lip Stain ◇ PAT MCGRATH LABS BlitzTrance Lipstick #072 Flesh Fatale PAT receives popularity because of its glittering eyeshadows, and they have developed it further to lipstick! I often prefer dark and vivid color when purchasing lipstick, this one is the only light-shade lipstick I own, and it's perfect to wear when you have no makeup on. Yes, this is a lipstick that can lighten up your dull skin and make your lip shine with its gold glitters. However, one disadvantage of it is that the glitters are big and gritty, and it does stay after the color wears off. PAT McGRATH LABS - BlitzTrance Lipstick ◇ MAC Amplified Lipstick #108 Dubonnet The oxblood color! Such a flattering shade which is a deep, cool-toned red and I love to match it with my heavy makeup to harmonize the overall look. It is perfect if you wanna create a charming atmosphere. Although I got warm-tone complexion, this color still looks beautiful and will make your skin brighter. It also has long-lasting power that stays after eating and drinking. MAC - Amplified Lipstick ◇ LANCOME Lacquer Liquid Lipstick #274 This one is not that famous like the other 3, but it's still my pick above all in winter! Instead of using vivid and high-saturation colors, I would use 274 because I prefer my winter looks to be low-key and implicit. Apply 274 independently, you will get a beige almond color, especially suitable for warm undertones. I personally love to apply this liquid lipstick as a final coat on top of other colors. If some colour is too bright and highly saturated, combined with 274 will hold down the overall effect and you are able to DIY your own ideal effect! LANCÔME - L'absolu Lacquer Gloss
My favourite MAC lipsticks! 😍
Hey everyone! Who doesn’t love a good staple Mac lipstick? MAC lipsticks are known worldwide and have been a popular choice among many makeup enthusiasts and makeup artists for years now- so I thought I would talk about my favourite lip colours in the collection. I have 18 altogether, but I am talking about my favourite 6 shades. All lipsticks have different formulas and wearing power- my preferable formula being matte. They also have a retro matte formula, a satin, amplified, amplified creme, creme sheen, lustre and frost. It depends on your personal preference if you like more sheer, opaque or glossy formulas so I’m glad they offer this option. MAC lipsticks in NZ used to be $40 which quite pricey, especially for an artist wanting to fill up their makeup kitthey have dropped their price $5 cheaper, down to $35 which seems a little bit more affordable. I get mine from Farmers which is a retail store in NZ, but you can also buy them from any MAC store, Smith & Caugheys or Mecca Maxima/Mecca Cosmetica. My most recent purchase and probably my most favourite would be the new love me lipstick in the shade shamelessly vain. I’m wearing it in the last pic attached. I saw a post on Insta with models wearing the shade for a makeup shoot and I was obsessed! I had to buy it. It’s a beautiful orangey red shade that is super pigmented and would suit all skin tones. I think it looks amazing when I wear a fake tan! The next lipstick is brave. It used to be my favourite back in the day, it’s the one I wore in all my old YouTube videos! When the whole Kylie Jenner dark nude lips when around, this is when I brought this shade! It’s a satin formula. The next colour is Candy yum yum which is a matte formula! It’s super bright and daring, perfect for a night out or if you want to feel extra glam. I think this looks amazing with blonde hair- you’ll literally feel like a barbie 🙊 The next colour is lady danger which is quite a popular colour in the whole MAC lipstick collection. It’s similar to shamelessly vain but is more of a true red and has no orange undertones to it. It’s the perfect bright pin up red lipstick and is a matte formula. The next colour is Diva which is a matte formula- you can start to see the trend in me loving matte finishes! I find it lasts longer and doesn’t slide around as easily. I don’t find them too drying either, and it’s perfect to add a gloss on top of. This dark vampy colour is the perfect winter/autumn colour and I always used to get compliments when I wear a dark red/purple. The last colour is the perfect light nude shade! It is called blankety which is an amplified formula. This suits any thing you wear & looks great with a slightly darker lip liner. Who doesn’t want a staple nude in their collection?! That was the end of my MAC lipstick review! Let me know what shade you like the look of the most and let me know your current favourite shades in the comments! 😍❤️ MAC - MAC Matte Lipstick MAC - Amplified Lipstick MAC - MAC Satin Lipstick
Glowin’ because TJ Maxx treats me RIGHT 💫😤
My last post made me even more aware of what a beauty noob I am, so today after work I went to TJ Maxx to look for a new highlighter because I never pay full price for anything (s/o to my parents for guilt-tripping me for 20 years!) In the end,I found said highlighter and so, so much more... First things first: I picked up the REVOLUTION - Strobe Highlighter in Holographic Lights and had this internal debate over whether or not to buy it but, at the end of the day, who needs to stress over a $3 product? So I decided to get it. I already had what I thought was a pretty decent highlighter, but boy was I wrong. This stuff is BEAUTIFUL. Someone with a little more cred might not be quite as impressed but I love it and that’s that. 💅 Plot twist: I see yet another beautiful Revolution highlighter and start to debate again until I remember that I am working lady and I can have both. So I also got the REVOLUTION - Liquid Highlighter in Champagne which is also so good and was only $3.50! I also ended up with: - MAC - Amplified Lipstickin Mocha - BITE - Outburst Longwear Lip Stainin Infuse - stila - Stay All Day Sheer Liquid Lipstickin Forza - MILANI - Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palette07 - a “golden nudes” eye palette from a company called Style Essentials, which I haven’t heard of and can’t find in here. I was a little skeptical of this one just because I don’t know anything about it, but it was cheap and I’ll definitely use it :) All of these items were well under $10 and I am super pumped to get my money’s worth!
First EVER MAC products!
Well everyone! I’ve went and did it, and have finally got me a couple MAC products in my collection that my friend has sold to me! I’ve tried *almost* all of these products just tonight so my thoughts are definitely still fresh! MAC - Studio Fix 24-Hour Smooth Wear Concealer I’ve heard people talk about this stuff for YEARS and said they loved it and now I know why! The colour is PERFECT for highlighting, and I love the smell! I imagine it blends PERFECTLY with a sponge, but alas I’m stuck with brushes for now :/ MAC - Prep + Prime 24-Hour Extend Eye Base Going to be able to give this a more honest review in the morning! I used a bit too much and it didn’t blend right, and also made my lashes clump together However removing my eye makeup was definitely tricky tonight that’s for sure! MAC - Brushstroke Liner This eyeliner is EASILY the best one I’ve used! The super-fine point made wings a dream, and detailing cut creases even better! It stayed black even after drying down and barely transferred! MAC - Iridescent Loose Powder ANOTHER 5 star rating? This powder is GORGEOUS as a highlighter, AND on the lid and I’m excited to see what other uses I can find over time! MAC - Studio Fix Sculpt & Shape Contour Palette I was on my tried and trusted ELF contour pallette for awhile now but this one may steal my heart! The ELF Pallete had a highlighter, but not a matte powder for under the eyes to brighten which disappointed me slightly, but the MAC Pallette had great pay-off and blended nicely, and there appeared to even be a bronzer shade in there for me! #MAC - MAC Pro Refillable Pallette[products]#[FiveStars] I love this idea! While I did not pick the colours myself, ALL the shades are super pigmented and beautiful, and blend like butter, I can’t wait to see what I can create with a palette of mostly shimmers! MAC - Amplified Lipstick While St. Germain is SOOO not my shade, it feels VERY comfortable on the lips! No transferring or bleeding from what I can tell either! MAC - MAC Matte Lipstick Lady Danger is a TOUCH closer to my shade, but still a bit too warm, super comfy on the lip and again NO transfer. Overall I’m SUPER impressed with all these products and may become a fully dedicated MAC girl 💁🏻♀️ See you in the next one!
