MAC Ruby Woo

All the red lipsticks from MAC is pretty much an icon on itsown. I wanted to buy a few to really see which ones the one I really like. But I don’t really use red lipstick. So it will be a waste. So I settle with Ruby Woo, the classic. I like it. It’s drying but it’s nice. It’s quite alright on the lips. It’s pretty. I am comfortable in it, but also feel like removing it. I prefer Viva Glam Rihanna as it’s just not so drying. But this is still nice. Cause retro matte is a good matte in appearances. 

The colour is just a classic, and you cannot go wrong with it. But if your lips is super dry, then it’s better to skip this and get something else. Cause there’re just so many red lipsticks out there. 

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk

£20 lipstick and it’s worth every pound. It’s a beautiful colour. It’s not exactly matte, so it’s not exactly drying. The shape of the lipstick, is also one I haven’t have before. It’s really applied nicely. It goes over the shape of the lips and one swipe is all you need. It’s a really nice lipstick. The tube is pretty much just a typical classic packaging. So nothing special about it. It’s rose gold colour though, makes it pretty to have on hand. It’s also a very sturdy lipstick but transfer very easily on the lips. I just like it. Even though the first time I used it and it transfer on to my teeth, I still did not fault this. Cause the second time and after, I used this and no problem. So yah, I like it. 

Nars Audacious Lipstick – Anita

I just had to try this formula. Like everyone said, I do end up liking the magnetic cap. It just makes me feel so secure, plus it’s easy to close the lipstick. After much thoughts, I decided on the shade Anita. It’s a pretty mauve shade. Pretty much, all the lip colour I’m wearing these days. 

Anita is super pigmented. The formula is a creme, very smooth to apply, just one coat is needed. It slightly covers my chapped lips, but closed up, I can still see it. It’s comfortable to a point that I forgot I had it on. I happen to pass by a mirror and my face looks rather bright. My lips look good and that’s when I remembered I used this lipstick. It just gives a nice colour to my face. I like it. 

I bought this at $46, so not exactly cheap. But I feel nowadays, lipsticks are around the $36 -$50 price point. As long as I enjoy using it, I still can closed my eyes on the price tag. 

MAC Fast Play

For the first time, MAC had a 20% sale in conjunction with the Sephora sale. So I bought a few item and I’m planning to unbox them one at a time. It was hard trying to choose a lipstick shade. I just want them all. But I decided to buy the different finishes. So first up is the Amplified lipstick. It’s pigmented, long wearing, smooth and doesn’t dry up your lips. My lips was quite chapped. And using this, you still can see the flakes on my lips. I was hoping that it will cover it up. But it doesn’t. 

Fast Play is a beautiful mauve. It’s slightly on the nude side, wearable for any occasion. It will gives your lips a hint of colour without attracting attention to you. 

I like how it’s so long lasting and yet it doesn’t dry up my lips. Even with chapped lips, it’s comfortable on. It’s also not patchy when applied. Really glad I pick up this colour. 

Heme Color Star Lipstick – Milk Tea

Love this cause it’s a clear balm surrounds a star shaped lipstick. Milk Tea is a nude shade, more on the pinky side. So it’s actually good for daily. It gives a neutral shade, with a bit of colour. I just like this has a surround balm which I thought will be super hydrating. It wasn’t. But it’s good enough. It doesn’t really dry up my lips. So this is like a tinted balm actually. Once you use it, the colour kind of just smudge around the bullet. I still like it. It’s comfortable and it is not so drying. 

Laduree Glossy Rouge – 04

This feels more like a balm upon application. It’s a very sheer pink. But go over a few times, a soft pink will appear. 

I love the packaging. It’s a light pink with really cute details. Too bad as once again it’s plastic. So it doesn’t have the luxury feel. 

The lipstick is also kind of drying. So I wouldn’t really recommend this. It’s just cute. But that’s about it. 

Super Lustrous Lipstick – Plum Baby

Love the formula. Even though it’s a pearl finish, it has the look of metallic. But it’s wearable. I like how smooth it goes on. I like that the colour is not too crazy. It’s more of a lilac. But that’s cause of the finish I guess. This can look quite pale on me sometimes though. So a blush is needed, if not it will kind of just wash you out. The colour is slightly too dull that it just absorb the light of you. 

CdP Extra Rich Lipstick – 1

Love tiny stuff. This is a good daily lipstick. The shade is not too bright. It’s a your lips but better shade. Albeit on the darker rosier side. But it’s still nice for day to day. The formula of this is also very solid. So you don’t feel like it can break easily. It’s just a nice lipstick. A nice formula. A nice colour. CdP is not a cheap brand, so the price of this will not be nice. But oh well. A creamy, solid lipstick that doesn’t chapped your lips is hard to come by. 

L’Oreal Colour Riche – Sunset Angora

I don’t look good in Coral. I love the shade, but it’s just one of those shades that just doesn’t really work on me. This one is pigmented enough, but still quite sheer on the lips. I have to go through a few times for its to be a full on shade on me. 

The colour is super pretty, the lipstick is easy to wear. But it will only look good on me when my lips is perfect. That’s mean no chapped lips. This is really a traditional lipstick. It’s soft but stern. It gives a shiny finish. It’s not exactly drying, but it’s not moisturising. It’s just a lipstick. 

Milani Matte Lipstick – Darling

This is not bad. It’s a hard lipstick but smooth on application. I can see why many recommend the Milani lipsticks. 

Darling is such a gorgeous colour. It’s just the right pink. A muted pink that doesn’t look too horrible on me. It’s pigmented so one swipe is enough. Dry lips is very obvious with this on. So that’s the only thing we need to care. This is the matte lipstick. So I can only imagine how much the normal one will be like. Anyway, I have much love for this lipstick. But it’s not something I will keep grabbing.
