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 !

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.

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.

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!

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!!

(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!

Have a lovely Sunday.

Makeup Academy – MUA Summer 2016 NEW Products!!

Hi makeup lovers,

Ahhhhh! I have been wanting to blog this post from Wednesday! Surprise surprise, MUA released their new Summer Collection! Even though there wasn’t a new eyeshadow palette to go along with this collection, there were a lot of NEW LIP PRODUCTS! This made me so ecstatic!!

I bought two separate orders, this helped decrease the shipping rate which is crazy! If you skip the £30 you would need to spend another £30 in shipping (this is speaking for Malta of course).

So I made 2 different orders, however am still waiting to receive them!

But I could not wait to share all the AMAZING goodies they have got new in their line. I will also tell you which ones I bought. A future post will be uploaded once my new products arrive!!! So stay tuned!!!

You can view all these amazing products on http://www.muastore.co.uk

  • MUA Luxe Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit – Pink Luster

    Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.23.11 PM.png

This is the second Strobe & Glow kit they have released. This is more of a pink toned glow rather than the one they released in Spring. Personally I prefer this one and so I bought this one!!! This retails for £5.

  • Bronzed Perfection Shimmer Sahara Sunlight

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.25.02 PM.png

MUA released three new bronzers and this one is one of them. I personally prefer this one because besides it being the brown contour bronze shade, it also has hints of golden pigments which allows for a shimmer bronzed effect. This looks perfect for summer and I cannot wait to receive mine in the mail! This retails for only £4!!

  • Bronzed Perfection Matte Sunset Tan

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.25.10 PM.png

This is a complete matte bronzer! It only comes in this shade! May I just say the packaging is adorable! This also retails for just £4. I did not pick this one up as I already have similar to it in my collection. However, if you are looking for a warm and natural bronzed effect, maybe you should pick this up!!

Watermelon

Ok, so let’s take a moment at how gorgeous these colours are! And we can all agree that they are ideal SUMMER COLOURS! On the website it describes these as:

  • Ultimate Colour that lasts all day, MUA Luxe Inked Lip Stains are vibrant shades in a lightweight, matte formula. Non-transferable, once applied the water-based stain leave lips soft and comfortable with stunning colour.

These retail for just £4 each and I of course bought all five shades! It’s funny in the first order only got Maraschino and Watermelon but then in the second I was like must get its brother and sisters!!! Cannot wait to see their matte effect and if they last as long as the Velvet Lip Lacquers!!

 

 

 

  • MUA Luxe Power Brow Sculpting Gel

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.42.11 PMScreen Shot 2016-06-05 at 4.42.15 PM

As you can see this comes in six different shades; there are – (from left to right) auburn, chestnut, dark brown, fair, light brown & mid brown. I got the fair but am worried because the colour swatches are not that easy to follow! But we will see, hopefully I chose the right shade. I never tried a brow product from MUA so this would be my first but I am excited!!

It states that is is smooth to apply and quick to dry. Also, the formula helps with resisting a smudged up appearance and it comes with a brush stored in the lid! This retails for £4. 

  • Pixel Perfect Multi Blush

(Roll your mouse over the images and it will tell you the names of each shade)

I think this is so cute, I already have their mosaic blush and am in love with it so I had to pick one up! I chose the Cherry Charm. I think they are just so cute, all the mish mash of the colours makes it a perfect blush shade!! These retail for £3 each! Although,I feel that Peach Bloom is just like a bronzer, but that may be that the picture is misleading of the actual shade it is in!

  • Pixel Perfect Multi Bronze

Terracotta Glow

Sunseeker Sheen

Of course they had to do also the Pixel Perfect Bronzers! These come in only two shades and are also £3 each! I chose to pick up the Terracotta glow because I prefer those shades as a new bronzer of mine! Although now looking at Sunseeker Sheen I wish I picked that up too! I think this is such a cute item and a must have for summer!

  • MUA Luxe Vivid Lipstick

Scroll over the different lipsticks to find out what their names are!

Omg! So MUA not only released a new LUXE Matte Lipstick range but also a new Lipstick Range! I just think the packaging is gorgeous! MUA describes these lipsticks as:

Ultimate impact, high pigment, full coverage lipstick. The MUA Luxe Vivid Colour Intense lipstick formula is gorgeously smooth and rich which, with one application, can achieve a perfectly plush coverage.

Cannot wait to try them, I only picked up Hot Chilli, Punch, Rocket & Red Alert. If you are into corals then definitely pick up Burn Baby Burn too! I am not much of a fan so I let that be! These retail for £3 each!

  • Pro-Base Cover & Conceal Kit

Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 5.08.40 PM

From left to right – Chestnut, Espresso, Ivory, Natural, Porcelain, Shell, Sienna

(Scroll over the pictures to see the shade names)

I personally did not pick this up, I have a similar palette of theirs which I did not like. However, this is rather impressive because of the vast colour range they introduced. These retail for £4 each. It includes four cream concealer shades to achieve a perfect base. Each shade can be used on its own or blended with other shades to match your skin tone. On the website it states:

The lightweight formulation is perfectly buildable to cover a multitude of complexion and skin imperfections leaving a natural finish.

I guess it would be exciting to try but I opted out of buying this. If you ever try it please let me know what you think of it!!

  • New Lip Liner Shades

These are from their £1 range, and they just released four new shades! I did not pick any up and I never tried any lip liners from MUA. But they are described as being creamy and pigmented. I can see these shades being used with the new colours that MUA released in their new lipsticks.

  • New Lipstick Shades

Besides new lip liner shades, they also released four new £1 lipstick shades. I only picked up Peach Amber and Pomegranate. I was curious about how Parma Violet would look like, but not too curious enough to buy it! I have tried their £1 lipsticks and think they are a great bargain. They are extremely creamy and moisturising for your lips. It also comes with a pan underneath that you could easily apply with a brush!

So that is all, what do you think? Are you going to pick any of these amazing products? Have you already made your order? Comment down below!!!

Happy Sunday!!!!
