My Favourite Summer Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

Apologies for not writing the blog posts I promised last week! I guess dissertation stress is taking over! But I want to continue uploading regularly, be it on my blog or my youtube channel. When I am having a bad day, I just love sitting down at my vanity and apply makeup, it is just my sort of therapy to help me relax and get back at thinking more positively.

Anyways, going away from the deep talk as Eyal does on Love Island (Who watches the reality show??), today’s blog post is about my favourite summer lipsticks! I shared a video where I showed you swatches of my choices. So you could either watch that or read this blog post … or do both!!

In summer I love wearing bolder and brighter lipstick colours. I wear less makeup yes but that doesn’t stop me from wearing a vibrant lip shade! My top 10 choices cover pink nudes to fun reds and oranges to a stunning hot pink and even a purple shade. Play around with colours, step out of your comfort zone and have fun with makeup!!

Here were my choices –

Favourite Spring Lipsticks 2017

Hi lip lovers, 

As you may know I am crazy about lip products! So if you have been following my Youtube channel and blog for a while you would know that I always do my favourite seasonal lipsticks!

And as Spring has just rolled in I had to do my Favourite Spring Lipsticks. However, this video was a collab with Daisy Taveras. You should really visit and support her channel as she does amazing makeup videos!!

My top 10 lipstick picks for this season are –

MAC Amplified Lipstick – Fast Play

IMG_8207fast play 1

I love this as it has such a lovely pink and creamy finish! Perfect lipstick for an everyday Spring Makeup Look!
Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream – Birthday Suit

IMG_8215birthday suit 1

This is such a gorgeous pink shade! I absolutely love this and the formula from Sleek!
Max Factor Velvet Matte Lipstick – Blush

IMG_8206blush 1

This is such a gorgeous fun pink to wear. It isn’t light or bright but just in between! I love the formula of these lipsticks too – they are so moisturising!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Prague

IMG_8210prague 1

I love the Soft Matte Lip Cream’s from NYX! And this is quite similar to the shade Blush from before. However, this shade is more matte than the other and it is slightly darker!
Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Lipstick – Summer Lovin’

IMG_8211summer lovin' 1

This is an out there kinda’ pink!!! Something that is bold and fun to wear! Reminds me of Nicki Minaj! Nonetheless, you can rock this on a night out makeup look.
(EBAY DUPE) Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick – Double Date

IMG_8212double date

Even though this is a dupe it is still a pretty shade. I had to reapply it a couple of times to get the finished look. But then it settles nicely on the lips!
Essence Matt Matt Matt Longlasting Lipgloss – Shade 5

IMG_8213shade 5 1

This is such a gorgeous pinky red! I love the way it settles on the lips and it isn’t all that matte but has a slight sheen to it.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream – Amore

IMG_8214amore 1

I love the scent of these formula lipsticks! This pink red shade is just GORGEOUS! Wear some eyeliner and mascara and add this, and you’re good to go!
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

IMG_8216sizzle 1

This is a lovely burnt orange shade. I guess orange is a more autumnal colour however I like this for spring as it isn’t dark!
Golden Rose Liquid Lipstick – Shade 8

IMG_8208shade 8 1

This again is a lovely pink shade – very fun and bright!

My Favourite Winter Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? 

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-44

I am so excited to be sharing with you this Youtube Video. As you know lip videos are my favourite ones to film. I have previously filmed my favourite seasonal lipsticks however, never did one for Winter until now!!

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-51

So here are my favourite 10 lipsticks that are all reasonably priced as all of them are drugstore as I now have realised!!

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Harmony

2

As you know I love the MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers. Even though they aren’t long last and need a constant re application especially when food or drink is involved, their range is great. They have so many shades in their collection including four new SPRING shades1!!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Point Zero

1

This was one of the collaborations that Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop and of course I had to get my hands on it! I love the formula of their satin lips and this lip shade screams winter!! Kathleen also released a new set of three lipsticks with Colourpop called Aquarius Bundle!

Essence XXXL Longlasting Velvet Matte Lipgloss in Silky Red

6

The formula isn’t the best but the scent of this lipstick is AMAZING! I have only managed to get my hands on one of these shades from this range. I love the formula as it is very soft and creamy!

Focallure Matte Lips in Shade 03 Burnt Amber

5

I purchased these off Ebay and I love the range. They are a little patchy and a little bit sticky but when I apply some sort of lip moisturiser before hand it definitely helps!

3ina Lipstick Shade 102

8

3INA is a brand that we recently got in Malta, there are 3 branches and I love the shop and the way it is designed! I love their products, and they are well priced too! The only thing that I don’t like about this lipstick is the bullet is so annoying to apply with!

BH Cosmetics Bh Liquid Lipstick in Clara

3

I absolutely love the formula of these lipsticks! They dry to a matte perfect finish and they have the fastest drying formula that I have ever tried! They are also long lasting as well!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Copenhagen

9

I love the Soft Matte Lip Range from NYX  I think they have such a lovely range of shades! The scent that these lipsticks have is AMAZING!! I like this shade however you have to be so careful around it as it tends to get patchy!

HUDA Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Vixen – Ebay Replica

10

So I cannot lie and tell you that this is the original products but no it is a knock off from Ebay. And I was hesitant in trying these out but I did and actually like how the colour pay off truly is! They do have a scent to them not a chemically one as you would expect off ebay! They are a little patchy and need constant re application but apart from those factors I love this lipstick!

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Magnetic

7

The Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme’s are by far my favourite liquid lipsticks! They have the sweetest scents from all these lipsticks I have mentioned! They are not that long lasting but are so soft and creamy! They apply so well and smoothly across the lips !! The applicator is helpful in creating a precise shape onto your lips!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Dominatrix – Ebay Replica

4

Again, this is a knock off and yes I did not want to spend all that money on the real thing, and was I happy with my decision? YES!! I love it. It is a little bit drying but again applying some moisturiser or lip balm before applying this lipstick definitely helps!! I love the shade it’s sort of a dusty mauavey brown and pink mixed together!!

I hope  you enjoyed this post!

What was your favourite lipstick and lip shade?

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Happy Wednesday!!

My favourite Summer Lippies

Hi Lip lovers, 

It is another lip-tastic post!!

I am quite the collector of lip products and so I decided on sharing with you my favourite summer lipstick shades.

I initially had decided that I would only pick 5 lipsticks however, I failed miserably at that! And I ended up picking … 10!!!

Here is the video –

The first of the bunch is a LIP GLOSS! I know shocking! I hardly ever wear lip gloss but ever since Ashley Tisdale released her very own line I couldn’t resist!!

Her line is called Illuminate and you can purchase any of her products on BH Cosmetics. My favourite shade for the summer months is BONFIRE.

The second shade is Wild Watermelon from Revlon. It just screams summer to me !

IMG_3956

The third shade is another lipstick. This time it is from the brand MUA. This is one of their latest releases from their – VIVID LIPSTICK LINE – called Red Alert.

IMG_3957.jpg

The fourth lip shade is one of my first mattes that I ever owned! This is from ELF and it is from the Studio Matte Lip Color Range. My favourite for summer is in the shade called Fuchsia.

The fifth shade is a liquid lipstick. Now as a DISCLAIMER I would like to let you all know – as I also included in this in my video – this lipstick is a REPLICA. I bought this off ebay and I was aware that it would not be real. However, because I tried the product and I actually liked it I wanted to share it with you all.

Now I know there will be others who would disagree with me because I use replica makeup but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. And my opinion on the matter is that I actually like how the product turns on my lips.

It is not drying whatsoever nor is it sticky. It does not have any bad chemical smells. Now I know the ingredients I can never find out what it really includes. But just be aware that there are famous brands that nonetheless use harmful chemicals too.

Anyways my favourite shade for the summer is another liquid lipstick this time from Dose of Colours in the shade BARE WITH ME. I had to include a nude.

The next shade is a favourite of mine and even the formula is AMAZING! That being NYX from their soft matte lip cream line. This time in the shade MILAN.

IMG_3963

As you can see I love pink in summer!! Now moving on from pink, I had to include an orange coral sort of shade. And I chose MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in the shade ZEST. This screams summer to me!

IMG_3967.jpg

The next shade is one that I am obsessed it with. Again this is a replica but it is amazing nonetheless. I love its matte effect that it leaves and it is a perfect orange red toned shade. This is from Mac Retro Liquid Lipstick in Feels so Grand.

The ninth shade is from MUA and this time its from again a new range called the Inked Lip Stain in the shade Watermelon. This honestly feels so refreshing on my lips!

And let me tell you, it does leave a lip stain on your lips that no matter if you use and scrub on a makeup wipe to try and take it off it will remain there. You can see my struggle by watching my video!!

IMG_3972

(The swatch I have here is not a true swatch as I did not really leave it to dry so it would be a lip stain. You could see how it really stained my lips on my video)

Now for the final shade I chose Panda from Colourpop from their Ultra Satin Lip. Now because of Watermelon – my previous lip shade – panda came off a little patchy. But I am sure it was because of the stain drama I had on before!!

I had to include a purple here even though purple is usually associated with the winter and cold months. But I love purple nonetheless, be it winter or summer!!

So there you have it, my favourite summer lip shades!
