KKW Beauty Creme Lipstick Set

I tried KKW Beauty Nude Creme Lipsticks

If there’s anyone who can  pull off the ultimate nude look, it’s Kim Kardashian.

No one does it better!

Every time I think about finding the perfect nude lipstick it drives me crazy because the chances of you finding one is like zero to none, for me at least!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick Set

NEW Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipstick Set

The story goes that ABH is on top of the list when it comes to makeup so of course I wanted to investigate for myself.

I have actually tried ABH in the past and I have to admit that their makeup is a force to be reckoned with. I tried their summer lip gloss set and I was very happy with them. The colors were absolutely gorgeous and I still frequently wear them to this day.

I recently picked up the Mini Matte Lipstick Set at Sephora a few weeks back because I wanted to see if they were as good as the lip gloss.

Shayla X Colourpop Collab Lip Swatch

There’s something I want to yell you! If you guys haven’t found out already Colourpop’s latest collab is with beauty blogger Makeup Shayla and it’s definitely looking like it’s worth reviewing.

I also did a review on the recent Ellarie Colourpop collection that you can check out.

They teamed up to do a makeup collection that included an eyeshadow palette, two highlighters, three Lux Lipsticks and a Lip Gloss.

Go Bold or Go Bare | Bare Minerals Swatch and Review

It’s been a hot minute since I actually purchased a product from Bare Minerals.

As a matter of fact, the only thing I usually purchase from them is their mineral powder foundation because my skin seems to love that stuff.

Get Nude with Me – Totally Toffee by Maybelline

Totally Toffee 215 Maybelline
Nude Lipstick- Totally Toffee 215 Maybelline

In my experience I’ve always found it hard to pull off nude lipsticks because I feel like they wash me out, which I’m sure is almost always the case for women with darker complexion, but as determined as I am, I’m always on a quest for I will not be defeated by the nudes.

My latest buy is Totally Toffee 215 by Maybelline. I’ve tried a few in the past and this shade seems to work best for my skin tone. It has a very smooth and creamy texture which I also find very moisturizing. On my skin tone it’s almost the same shade as my NYX Mauve Lip Gloss minus the glossy finish. This lipstick looks amazing when worn with bold smoky eyes for a date night or tone it down for a more natural look for the office. You can easily dress it up or down depending on the occasion or the setting.

If you’re new to wearing nude lipsticks then you might have to go through several trials and error like I did before I found a shade that I was satisfied with. When you finally find one that works for you just make sure to stock up on the shade in case it gets discontinued. Don’t you hate that? Try it out and let me know what you think. Puckers to you, xoxo.
