Lipsticks


Truthfully, I don't really wear makeup nor use foundation, primer, blemish or any types of BB products on my face because I prefer to let my skin breath the fresh air. The only product I use is an 'eye-liner' because it is my signature look with pitch dark smokey eyes, though I am trying to getting used to my original face without anything. It looks pale sometimes but I quite like it like that lol. However, apart from eye-liner which I can't live without, lipstick is also another item kept in my tiny makeup bag. Despite the fact that I would rather go out with my bare face, there always be a day that we all have to look glam and spot on. Personally, I think a wide variety of lipsticks can help us look different depending on personal style. So, here are some of my favourite lipsticks that I normally use for each occasion. 


1) For everyday look

Left- Sephora Rouge (made in France)
Right- MAC Lady Danger (made in Canada)

These are the most favourable lipsticks which can complete my look without eye makeup. In terms of quality, I have to admit that I really LOVE Sephora and Mac since their lipsticks always moisturize my lips while the pigments are very lasting. I have tried the soft pink tone but it has never worked out on my face. Hence, these vibrant shades are the perfect vividness for my skin tone, especially on set with the camera...Sadly, there's no Sephora in United Kingdom! 

2) For party


MDMflow 3 Kings (made in London)

This green colour may freak some of you out, but for a person like me, I absolutely love this MDMflow 3 Kings because it is the craziest colour I have ever had. I have a few black lipsticks, so the green one is the newest member of my family :) I actually received this product from Then and Now Shop, an online retailer based in UK. Sometimes, I love to browse online for unique lipsticks because there's no such thing exists in Manchester. So, this website is a great help to me because there are so many quirky colours which I want to try such as blue, purple, orange etc. Also, I quite like the package of MDMflow too, isn't it look like a bullet?! I think whatever in gold and black is chic. 

3) For photo shoot


Left- Black Velvet
Right- Poison Berry

Lime Crime is one of the brands I always spend my money on because its colours are so lovely! Again, the freaky colour like Black Velvet is my all time shiny star since it brings the character out, while boosts up the look to be more grunge. This liquid lipstick will turn to matte texture in about a few seconds, however, watch out for your teeth because it always leaves a stain on them!

Here are some other lipsticks I use. 

Topshop- Ruthless
Topshop- Matte Lip Bullet 

Left (top)- L'oreal Paris 10 Candy & Cherie
Left (bottom)- Style Icons Fashionista Aubergine shade 8
Right (top)- Collection 1 Popping Pink
Right (bottom) - Calvin Klein 31142 Eros

  10. Those Lime Crime lipsticks look amazing! Especially the purple one. Do you think it's generally wearable or do you leave it for special occasions?

    1. Personally, I usually wear them because it's not that dark though. It's more like pink+dark purple :) x
