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.

5 Underrated Makeup Items

Hello beauties,

Recently I brought you 5 makeup items that are worth the hype, this week I bring to you 5 makeup items that don’t have enough hype. Here’s my picks that are worth checking out x

Innoxa Skin Perfect Pore Vanishing Cream

This is one of the best drugstore primers I’ve ever used! I honestly think this is a dupe for the Benefit Porefessional, click here for my comparison of the two.

Coty Air Spun Loose Face Powder- Translucent

I’ve recently fallen in love with this powder again. It’s a great drugstore powder that creates a flawless finish, minimises pores and keeps the oils at bay. Definitely worth adding to the shopping list if you’re after a new face powder.


The Balm Betty-Lou-Manizer

I know everyone is crazy about The Balm Mary-Lou-Manizer, but honestly I think Betty-Lou-Manizer is the real star! It’s a bronzing highlighter that gives the perfect glowy bronze highlight look. If you have fair skin then you’ll probably have to pass on this. But if you have olive to dark skin then this is a winner!
