Favourite winter lipsticks!!!

P1110667

Hello makeup loves!

I can’t believe that it is already November, this year has gone so fast. As many of you will know I have spent the last year travelling around the world…..finally though I am back! I love winter- except for the cold weather- and I love that makeup wise you can start wearing deep, dark lipsticks. So, I thought I would tell you my favourite purple lipsticks for this winter and the great thing about most of these lipsticks is that they can be found in most Boots and Superdrug stores and accommodate for every budget!

First up is the new Maybelline Super Stay 14hr Lipstick in ‘Always Plum’, this lipstick lasts forever without drying out your lips and has a nice creamy texture. This is a matt plum colour and looks great alone or teamed with a lipgloss.

Up next is Revlon, and their AMAZING deep purple lipstick in ‘Va va violet’. I have used this lipstick on many photoshoots because the colour is so intense and beautiful. this is not long lasting so be aware that you will need to re-apply. This colour looks amazing on dark skin tones. I have included a photo from a shoot that I used this lipstick on.

Another great purple lipstick is another one by Maybelline from the ColourSensational range. The colour is ‘Midnight Plum 338’, and this is a slightly lighter plum colour than the deep Revlon. This colour differs dependent on skin tone and lip colour so be sure to try before you buy. This lipstick has very small flicks of shimmer through it and looks very pretty on lips for parties.

My last favourite lipstick is one from my Inglot palette, number 85. This is a long lasting lipstick with a semi-matt finish, highly pigmented this lipstick it fantastic for photoshoots. All of the Inglot lipsticks have a beautiful creamy texture to them and they feel lovely on your lips. Mmmmm……

Moving onto lipgloss I recently discovered this beautiful creamy gloss by Laura Mercier in ‘Mauve Plum’. It looks fantastic on top of the 14hr Maybelline lipstick from above. Purple lipgloss is great if you are a bit uncertain about statement lips as they are a lot sheerer than lipstick.

Finally Shu Uemura have a fantastic dark purple, very sheer lipgloss thats perfect for giving a high shine to a matt lipstick. The colour is 059N. It smells yummy too……

Hello beauty lovers! I can’t believe that July is already over and its now August….. its has been such a quick month! I am really excited because on the 31st of this month I fly to Vietnam to start my next adventure traveling around South East Asia, eeek!

I thought that I would share with you the beauty products that I have been loving over the last month. I have uploaded a video on my youtube beauty channel where you can see many more products and check out some swatches, click here to join me and remember to subscribe so you don’t miss out.

My FAVOURITE product this month is one that I am wearing in this photo and its the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain. This lip balm is awesome and I am definitely going to be picking up more colours to take with my to Asia. I have a beautiful pink/purple colour called ‘Darling’ which is a gorgeous summer colour and brightens up my day! Similar to the Clinique Chubby Sticks but cheaper and I think, better, here is why I love this product so much…….

My next LOVE of this past month has been the ColourTattoo 24hr Cream Eyeshadow by Maybelline. I bought ‘Permanent  Taupe’ an awesome everyday matt shade and by everyday, I mean EVERYDAY! I can’t get enough of this creamy eyeshadow! It makes my morning makeup routine super quick as I can just blend this quickly all over my eyelid and add a darker powder shadow in my crease line and I am good to go.  Why do I love this product…..

-Smudgeproof and doesn’t crease

-Easily blendable with powder eyeshadows

-Looks fantastic used on its own

-Creamy texture that’s easy to apply with fingers or a synthetic brush

-Awesome pigmented colour range

Revlon Lip Butters- Review Time!

emma_stone_revlon_lip_butter

My new LOVE is the Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters, they are awesome! Firstly, I have to say, how amazing does Emma Stone look? I recently bought 3 of these soft and creamy lip butters and can’t get enough of them. I chose ‘Sugar Frosting’, a shimmery, very light pink, Peach Parfait’,  which is a gorgeous peachy/apricot colour with gold specks throughout and lastly Berry Smoothie’, a delicious pink/red, shimmery colour. To be honest I want EVERY single colour that exists in the ‘ColourBurst’ range and here is why-

  • These lip butters have the perfect amount of colour and shimmer
  • They feel SUPER smooth and creamy on my lips.
  • They are not at all sticky, this is a huge positive for me as I hate when the wind blows your hair into your lips and then it gets stuck- you know what I mean?

These lip butters are perfect for summer, keeping your look natural but with that hint of colour!!! 10/10, I am 100% in love with these, well done Revlon.
