It can be a pretty scary thought when it comes to buying makeup and lipstick only to realize that it wasn’t what you expected to be. Many of us don’t have confidence in cheaper brands just because they usually turn out to be a waste of money. [Read more…]
Hey fellow bloggers and readers,
I have to admit that I’m glad to be back after taking off a month. If you’ve noticed that I’ve been MIA for a while that’s because I recently got married and was caught up in wedding planning and travelling. Now that that’s all over just been trying to get back to my lipstick hunting and weekly blogging.
Well you guys know that I love a good deal, especially if you’re someone like me who spends a lot on makeup. Butter London has been my secret obsession as of late. I’ve purchased their lip oil that I’m convinced was a God sent because it’s literally the best thing that has happened to my lips. And because I was very happy with that purchase, I had to go back and get other products, of course.
The good news is that Butter London is having a sale and that’s how I ended up buying more products. Click here to take advantage of that sale and reclaim your lipstick game! Since it’s a sale item, it may or may not be available but the lipstick version can be found on Amazon as well.
My most recent purchase is the Primrose Hill Picnic Lip Crayon as seen in the pic below:
It’s a very girly and flirty fuchsia-like shade on me. I really got a ton of compliments on this color as it is so vibrant and just lights up my entire face.
You can compare it to my first lip crayon purchase from Butter London in the shade Teddy Boy that is more of pinkish nude on my skin tone that I wear all the time now when I’m not trying to go too heavy on the makeup.
It is still sad, cold and snowing on my side of town and I am definitely looking forward to Spring. With that said, the easiest way to cheer myself up during these winter blues is with a vibrant and fun lipstick. I have for you today NYX’s Summer Breeze Matte Lipstick MLS06 that I picked up at the drugstore. I wore it the next day and I was pretty satisfied with the results. The color went great with my skin complexion and definitely made my lips pop.
I had applied my eos lip balm
before to add moisture to my lips because matte lipsticks have a dry finish and tend to dry out your lips. I do realized, however, that even though I had applied a moisturizing lip balm my lips still got very dry throughout the day and became uncomfortable so I applied my Covergirl moisturizing top coat on top of the lipstick which gave it a little glossy finish which still looked amazing.
