Red lipstick has been a huge part of my look and collection since I first started wearing makeup. It was the first “grown-up” lipstick I ever purchased and is usually the first shade I will buy from a new range or brand. Red lipstick makes me feel powerful and confident and there is usually a shade for everyone.
When I heard about Kat Von D naming a lipstick “Underage Red” I have to admit my eyebrows raised a little. When I then found out why she named it that, I knew I had to have it. Read her full Facebook Post here on why she named it so. Underage Red is named for that first red lipstick you buy, the super bright, fire engine red one you slap on to get yourself into parties and gigs when you really shouldn’t be going. It’s that nostalgic shade that as soon as you put on you remember that feeling all those years ago of being unstoppable.
So without further ado lets see how Underage Red looks and performs. Read more
Makeup Revolution has been creating some serious packaging need recently. They brought out their Rose Gold lipsticks and it was so hard not to buy all of them simply for the packaging. Chauffeur all soft pink beige, was of course the one I picked…for now.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams have been such a welcome addition to my collection, Monte Carlo was amazing and I knew I had to get more. San Paulo had always called to me and I was lucky enough to get it as a birthday present recently. Read more
I have adored matte liquid lipsticks for such a long time and have been so pleased that some easier to find brands have been launching their own. Maybelline has had their Vivid Mattes out for a while now, but it has been quite hard to get one as the stand is always empty. I was lucky enough to be taken out shopping for my Birthday and the lipstick Gods smiled on me that day as there was a full stand of Maybelline. I picked up Nude Flush and Rebel Red. Read more
Finding a Karen Murrell lipstick on my desk is always such a great surprise. With Winter starting here in New Zealand I expected a Wintery colour, on the darker, possibly berry side, but Orchid Bloom is a Winter pick me up that I did not expect. Karen Murrell describe Orchid Bloom “This mysterious yet alluring new colour, inspired by Karen’s guilty pleasure Slipper Orchids, combines subtle tones of warm coffee brown with a dash of lip-warming blush pink.” Read more
Jeffree Star has been pumping out some amazing products and with the launch this week of his Skin Frosts and Beauty Killer Eyeshadow Palette I thought I should finally get round to sharing one of my favourite shades, Doll Parts (Celebrity Skin is my other one, you can find it here). Doll Parts was originally launched last year as part of the Holiday collection along with: Drug Lord, Androgyny, Mistletoe and Hoe Hoe Hoe. I was lucky enough to pick up Doll Parts and Mistletoe before they completely sold out.
So lets have a good look at Doll Parts. Read more
Monday is always a good day for a nice bright red lipstick, but really every day is 😉 Today’s lipstick is Monte Carlo from NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream range. These have been everywhere for as long as I have been reading and writing blogs. When NYX finally launched a New Zealand store, I knew I had to get at least one of them to see what all the hype was about. Read more
How has your weekend been? Mine has been full of blog photos, Criminal Minds and Captain America Civil War.
Today’s lipstick in the spotlight is NYX Whipped Caviar from the matte range. It is wonderful to have NYX in New Zealand properly and I even braved the first day of the stand opening. They have a great range of products and seem to be quick and keeping the stand well stocked. From my first visit I also picked up the liquid highlighter, primer and soft matte lip cream.
Good Morning Lovelies!
I have another Karen Murrell lipstick for you today. I was sent the gorgeous Coral Dawn to review this time. I don’t own many Coral lipsticks so I was pretty excited to have something bright for the spring season.
I have a lipstick I have been dying to share with you today. MAC’s and Dita Von Teese’s Von Teese a beautiful vivid tomato red. I absolutely adore Dita Von Teese so when I heard she was creating a lipstick with MAC I knew I had to get it. From what I can see it is an online exclusive, so I paid for youshop just to make sure I got it. So beware this post have a few more pictures than usual 😉
