Guide to Red Lipsticks

Hello beauties,

You all know my weakness for red lipsticks. With my obsession with red lipsticks, I think I’m close to an expert on the subject. With that being said, I wanted to share some of my faves so that you have a few options when Valentine’s Day comes around xx

Maybelline Color Drama in Fab Orange

Great dupe for the NARS Velvet Lip Pencils. They’re creamy, great pigmentation and lasting power. Did I say that they’re only $9.95? I also think the shade Fab Orange is a close dupe for MAC Lady Danger, but not as matte.

MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger

I think this would easily of been my favourite lipstick of 2016! I love that its an orangey red that makes any outfit look glam! Because its matte, its really long lasting but also a little drying.

Makeup Products Worth Repurchasing

Hi beauties,

As a beauty blogger I’m lucky enough to be sent loads of products to try. As a reader it can be hard to know which products I actually truly love and which ones are just alright… Even for myself I find it hard to know what I really love using. So here are the makeup products that I love and use practically every day and would be happy enough to repurchase with my own dollars!

Benefit Porefessional

This primer is awesome for my oily skin. I use this practically every day under liquid foundation as it creates a smooth canvas and keeps the oils at bay. For a dupe, the Innoxa Skin Perfecting Vanishing Cream is fantastic! Click here for a comparison of the two primers.

Loreal True Match Foundation

Holy grail liquid foundation! I wear this practically every day. Click here for a full review.

Innoxa Renew Age Erase Serum Foundation

This foundation is a tad light on me, so I mix it with the Loreal True Match. When I pair the two together, I have a full coverage, flawless base that lasts all day. Click here for a full review.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation

Love love love! I wear this every day in summer as it keeps me looking flawless even when I get oily. I use this as an all over foundation or as a setting powder on top of liquid foundation. Click here for a full review.

Benefit Brow Zing

While I haven’t needed to repurchase this product, I use this every day and can’t imagine life without it! I love this brow kit! Creates a beautiful strong brow without being overpowering. I’ve finally hit pan and I’ve had this for three years! Well worth the investment.

NARS Bronzer- Casino

Great bronzer, not orangey and not too shimmery. Yes its expensive but its worth it.

The Balm Betty Lou Manizer

Now this is such an underrated product, but oh so amazing! This is a highlighting bronzer that adds the most amazing glow. If you have fair skin this may not suit, however on my dark skin it looks so amazing! I know I’ve said amazing three times, but it just is!

Milani Baked Blush- Berry Amore

When I first purchased this I used this every day! I love that it has a hint of shimmer without looking glittery. Great drugstore blush!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick- Redrum

This is one of my favourite lipsticks! If you’re a regular follower you know how much I love red lipstick and this would have to be my favourite! Beautiful red colour, not too drying on the lips and lasts really well throughout the day.

MAC Kohl Liner- Teddy

I’ve fallen back in love with this eye liner! I use this daily for some added definition as the bronze colour is a lot less harsh than using black. Definitely check out Teddy when you’re next at MAC.

I hope you found this post helpful as I wanted to show you my true makeup favourites. All these products I would happily purchase with my hard earned dollars.

Updated: Liquid Lipstick Swatch Fest

Hello Beauties,

As you all know I’m a big fan of liquid lipsticks! I’m willing to pretty much try any liquid lipstick in the hope that they’ll be long wearing without being drying and have an awesome colour selection! Not to much to ask for, right? I did a liquid lipstick swatch fest a while back, click here to check it out. In the mean time I’ve added a lot more to my collection so here’s some swatches and mini reviews of each x

Lime Crime Velvetines

The original makers in liquid lipsticks and a personal favourite of mine a part from the controversy…. The lipstick formula is thin, easy to apply, great pigmentation and lasting power. I love this new shade Riot and think it would be suitable for all skin tones.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipticks*

New to the drugstore market, these matte lipsticks aren’t your traditional drying matte lipsticks. The texture reminds me of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, quite creamy and moisturising. They don’t dry completely matte and don’t have the best lasting power but are nice if you’re after something a bit more moisturising on the lips.
