Hey Everyone!

Today I’m super excited to share with you the new Silkygirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream and Perfect Sharp Eyeliner that I’ve been really liking and I can’t wait to give you my thoughts about them. Matte lip creams or lipsticks are all the range recently – they provide great pigmentation, offer a more natural lip finish and they last the entire day without smudging or smearing. Seriously, you could wipe your mouth with a tissue and there will be no transfers of product! Amazing right? Let’s get started.

The Silkygirl Matte Junkie Lip Creams offer kissproof and transfer resistant lip color that applies like a liquid lipstick and dries to a matte finish. It’s lightweight, fragrance, carmine and paraben free! The applicator of the lip cream is a doe foot applicator which makes applying the product easy. I love how it offers wearable pigmentation and the shades of the lip cream are all hits in my opinion. Sometimes I feel like other brands who put out liquid lips with natural shades are all too light for me but as you’ll see later, the natural shades are absolutely amazing for any occasion. If you’re looking for an office friendly shade in matte liquid lipstick form, seriously look no further!

Today I’m going to do a review on a classic lipstick – the Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle. I’m an avid fan of Chanel’s Rouge Allure range so I was excited to try out the Rouge Coco range as they have been re-formulated! The Rouge Coco range is known for being a ready to wear and iconic lipstick that melts on your lips with vibrant and lasting color. Chanel sent me two shades – the classic Mademoiselle and red Gabrielle. I’ll be doing a giveaway on one of the lipsticks at the end of this post so stay tuned!

As mentioned, the formula of the Rouge Coco lipsticks are now revamped to be more comfortable and have a melt away texture. Using their Chanel Sensorial Analysis, Make-up Formulation and Physical Expertise laboratories, they have used physical, sensory and emotional characteristics to guide their new formulation. Amongst the 33 developed and 19 tested, 1 formula came out supreme to provide an amazing texture. With a specific wax, lips are now dressed in a softer veil that glides on and melts away. The butter in these lipsticks are also composed of three plant waxes (jojoba, mimosa and sunflower) that provides hydrating and protective properties to the lipstick. Last of all, a polymer film with silicone microbeads fills wrinkles and rough areas to decrease bleeding and feathering. It is truly an amazing formula and one that I have been very impressed with.

Today I thought I would do a review of Shu Uemura’s latest lip lacquers – the Shu Uemura Laque Supreme. These are inspired by premium japanese lacquer ware and the packaging is gorgeous. I received the laque supreme gift box consisting of three of Shu Uemura’s laque supreme colors. The box itself has been created in collaboration with Yamada Heiando which is an expert Japanese lacquer ware brand who are purveyors to the Imperial Household Agency since 1919! Each lip piece has been beautifully adorned with high quality and traditional red lacquer to a standard only achievable by a true artisan.

Today I’m going to be doing a review on the Dior Addict Fluid Sticks. They’re a recent hit that I’ve been trying lately. These fluid sticks are basically liquid lipsticks or lip lacquers – a pigmented formula that is a mix between a gloss and a lipstick. Dior claims that this is a one-coat do it all hybrid lipstick with the hold of a classic lipstick and the shine of a gloss.

First of all, if you haven’t fallen in love with Dior packaging, you must be uber immune. I love Dior makeup. I love the packaging and I can’t hide the fact that whenever I’m using Dior, I just feel insanely happy. I don’t know why, it’s just beautiful. It’s the kind of make-up that makes me want to just hold it in my hand and stare at it for hours on end. Okay, maybe not hours but you know what I mean. That being said, the fluid sticks come in a gorgeous metal, mirror like packaging with the head of a lipstick and a boudoir handle. It’s amazingly gorgeous. The applicator is a curved doe foot with a scoop that helps to pick up the product and something that I do find easy to use.

Today I will doing a review on a recent purchase in London – the Rimmel Apocalips! I first heard about these amazing lip lacquers from a fellow youtuber @sunnydahye who insisted I tried them. The recent withdrawal of all Rimmel products from Singapore didn’t allow me to so when I saw it here in London at my local Boots, I made a quick grab to add them to my basket. I thought they’d go on too bold for me to be honest swatching them at the store but I was really surprised at how smooth and lightweight they are.

There are just about 7 or 8 shades of these Apocalips and I got the pretty much the boldest picks of the lot – Stellar and Apocaliptic. There are nudes, a neutral and a couple reds and plums as well. As you know, my standard lip is a good hot pink so I’m always on the hunt for my next favourite when it comes to this shade. These were 6.49 pounds and I had a 3 for 2 deal at Boots which was great. I love the packaging – in this kind of black diamond mountain like appeal as if it’s “earth-shattering” and the applicator is cool in that it has a pocket for the product. This ensures that you don’t have to keep on dipping back into the tube for more which is an issue I always have.

Finding a lipstick favourite in my jungle of a collection is pretty difficult but I’ve found myself using one time and time again so today I was like, why aren’t I telling you about it?! It’s the Burberry Lip Velvet in Redwood and it happens to be right now my all time favourite subtle matte finish lipstick.

First of all, it is instantly classy and chic. I mean look at the packaging – even the lipstick is printed with the signature Burberry pattern and the case is embossed with it. I love how the formula is so smooth and creamy. Not that wet creamy though, just kind of like chocolate. For a matte lipstick, it really is far from drying and the pigmentation is amazing. My lip velvet is in Redwood which is a beautiful dark neutral brick brown that I really love sporting these days when I have more “serious” things to attend to. I reckon it’s a lovely work lipstick too because it’s not too loud but still defines the lips really well!
