Hey Everyone,

Lip liner is one of those love it or don’t know it kind of products. Most of us don’t even use lip liner and reach straight for our lipsticks right? I know I used to. But I find that for bold lips – whether it’s red, pink or even orange –  nothing beats a good lip liner to really define your lips and make sure that your lipstick doesn’t move or fade.

The best lip liners are smooth, easy to apply, sharp and pigmented. You need to be able to get pigment by a very light trace of the pencil. Here’s a simple tutorial on how to apply your lip liner. Of course the way you do this is just like eye liner in that you have thousands of different ways that you can draw the line but here’s how I do the job:

Hey Everyone!

It’s silly, but it’s true. Sometimes with all the lip colours out there, we just don’t know which one to whip on. Do we go pale like Kim Kardashian or pink like Nicki Minaj?

Well, here’s the answer. Simply go 1 or 2 shades darker than your natural lip color to find your most flattering, natural shade. Simply smack your lips together tightly and see the color your lips produce when you let go. That, my love, would be your go to daily lip color. If you want your lipstick to last longer, grab a lip liner and fill in your lips first before applying your lipstick.

We all know that Topshop makeup has been around for a while now. The definetly different packaging of white chalk on black paper, squiggly sketches of make-up products has always caught my attention but I never really dove in for the kill until now.  I’m like a stubborn cat when I’m shopping. When I want to go shopping, I really go shopping. When I want to try something out, I want to try it all. And if I’m not in the mood, my parents have even begged me to buy something. Anyway, enough of being silly, here’s my take, opinion, review, whatever floats your boat of the majority of the make-up products.  Let’s get started.

Hey Everyone!

There’s nothing like hot pink lips. Or, any kind of pink lips for that matter. It’s not as bold as a sexy, classic red and neither quiet as a flowery nude. It’s probably one of my favorite fun lip colors to wear. I thought it would be cool to show you how I get my variations of pink lips – from a subtle hot pink gloss to a bold OCC lip tar. Let’s get started!

These happen to be my favorite hot pink lip products! I’ll show you what they look like on my lips and give a little review!

The first one is the Sportsgirl Liquid Lip Color in Forever Young. Sportsgirl make-up is a little underrated. I just love their lip products especially their lipglosses. They are smooth and they have great colors. Forever Young is a standard hot and wild pink. When I saw it at the store, I immediately grabbed it. It’s beautiful.

Hey Everyone!

I don’t know how many times I saw these babies on instagram, being tweeted and being ripped off the shelves at Priceline. Despite telling myself time and again that I didn’t need a new lipstick, I just had to. Plus priceline had a 2 for 1 deal and buying them at a regular 20+ dollar tag was way too out of my league for a drugstore purchase. I have to say that these are absolutely wonderful, now let’s take a look at why.

The Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters state that:

So basically, you’re looking at absolutely moisturising lipsticks that have hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula and are said to boost moisture by 156% which is huge. What’s unique is that it has a gel formula and provides sheer to medium color with buttery shine. I like it already. I don’t tend to like my lipsticks super buttery though if that makes sense. I’d a rather a lipstick that feels natural on my lips than one I can “slip and slide” with.

Hey Everyone!

To be honest, I’ve never been a total Shisedo buff until they asked me to preview their Spring collection about a year ago. In the gift bag were a few items from the collection and this lipstick and not to metion one of the best lipglosses I have ever tried. I probably will term Shiseido as my lipgloss go-to brand because it takes not feeling anything to another level. Today I’ll be reviewing the Shiseido Perfect Rougue Tender Sheer Lipstick.

First of all, who doesn’t love the packaging of this baby. It’s sleek, encased in metal and I love the beautiful contours of the lipstick.
