Current Favourite/ Fall Lip Colours


After all these years I finally figured my favourite lips colours are rosy/ nude pink. Sounds like everybody’s fav color, right? I’ve tried so many colours, orange, coral, red, bright pink, purple, dark… I found that sweet and girly makeups aren’t for me, and dark/ bright red colours make me look old in pictures. So neutral, darker, warmer pinks have become my go-to favourite. They compromise my skin tone and can go with so many different looks. Just recently I have gotten and played around with some new lip stuff. Let’s see if they’re your cup of tea.:)


First off let’s talk about how beautiful this  Hourglass lip stick is. It’s so elegant and unique. The colour I got is no one knows. On the website it says this is a “peachy pink.” It does have a tiny bit of peachy tone in it but only when you compare it to other nudes/ pinks. I really like the colour, however the consistency is not my favourite. Not sure if it’s just this colour, but I found that if I use it on top of some lip balm the colour kind of slides away. Even on its own I feel like it’s a little waxy and doesn’t go on smoothly. If I use my finger to smooth it out a little on my lips it looks perfect, but for this price I’d expect something more than this.


This Charlotte Tilbury lipstick packaging is again so elegant and beautiful. The colour is liv it up in the hot lips line. The colour is so much like no one knows on my lips, but without the peachy undertone. But this lip stick goes on more smoothly and the colour pay off is a tad better. I wish they had a long wear formula for it tho.

So M.A.C came out with this new lip collection last fall, called M.A.C Liptensity. It’s supposed to be limited edition but is still for sale. I have to be honest I was never a fan of M.A.C, not that I didn’t like their products, I just found other brands more appealing. But I regret not getting these lips sticks earlier.

TOAST AND BUTTER from M.A.C’s liptensity collection


The 2 colours I got were Driftwood and Toast and Butter. The first day I wore Toast and Butter I got so many compliments, even from guys (not my date/ bf/ dad, etc. etc.) which to be honest was totally out of my expectation. It’s a wearable brown and such a beautiful fall colour. Bonus is it’s so long wearing. I’m so in love.


Driftwood is a lighter cool nude pink. It doesn’t look like it in the picture, but it’s actually not that nude and is a little pink on the lips. It doesn’t give a bold statement like Toast and Butter. But you gotta be more careful with the overall look you want to archive and have the right colours for your eyes and cheeks, then you can archive a very cool look. Or else it could may you look a bit tired and sick.


The last product I want to talk about is Tarte’s quick dry matte lip paint. It’s my favourite matte lip product so far- great colour, goes on smoothly, dries fast but gives enough time to blend, but at the same time so comfortable to wear and isn’t drying. The colour I got was rosé, which is my absolute favourite rose nude. It is my go-to lip stick now when I don’t have a particular colour I want to wear.

I’d love to know what your fav lip products are and see if we share the same taste! Comment down below and please follow my new IG:

Until next time! xx


Colorpop Fall Collection Haul (Love A Flare And More!)


I know, I know, I’m probably the last person to try out the Colorpop cosmetics but I finally did and I was so excited to order Love A Flare from the fall edit and a bunch of other stuff. So keep going and see if they’re something you’d like as well!:)

At the beginning I was a little hesitant because I wasn’t sure what I was gonna do with moonwalk, and the colours high rise and head hush looked a little similar to me. But I’m so glad I did because the colours are GORGEOUS. You can create so many day and night looks with them, they stay on and blend so easily. You probably already know, Colorpop’s eyeshadows have a moose consistency and dry to powder. So be careful when you apply if you’re new to makeup or not used to it, otherwise it could get a little messy.

Swatches top to bottom: MOONWALK, MELROSE, I SPY, BY MY SIDE, HIGH RISE, HEAD RUSH (I’m still quite tan from the summer…)

Off to the face and lips. I got 2 blushes- BARDOT and BIRTHDAY SUIT.


You can see that the colour payoff is awesome for BARDOT; for BIRTHDAY SUIT, not so much, which I’m a little disappointed (that’s like 3 swatches already in the picture.) The good news is, both colors stay on the cheeks through out the day.

They are not the same, but if I had to pick between the ultra satin lip and lippie stix, I’d definitely pick the lippies. If you haven’t heard enough good things about the Colorpop lippies, let me tell you, it’s probably the best lip sticks I’ve come across. I always have to have some lip balm on for any matte or semi matte finish lipsticks. But not for the Colorpop lippies. They are obviously not moisturizing, but they don’t not hang on or emphasize dry patches. I mean, I don’t know about other colors but I’ll definitely order more in the future. The ultra satin lip is not bad, it goes on the lips rather smoothly, but in comparison it does feel more drying.

Top: Ultra Satin Lip in November Bottom: Lippie Stix in LUMIERE, both from the Kathleen Lights collection

For the eyeliner, I feel like I’ll have to test it out more to give a fair review, but I’m liking it so far, I’ve wanted a bronzy brown for so long and this eyeliner color Mr. Bing, which is also from the Kathleen Lights collection (yes, you can tell she’s one of my favorite YouTubers,) has already stolen my heart.

Colorpop just came out with a Hello Kitty collection, and they are not offering free international shipping if you spend 50$ or more till the end of the year! Definitely go check it out if you’re a fan or haven’t already!

Hope you enjoyed! Until next time.

Review-Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipsticks

Let me just start by telling you how much I love these lipsticks. I was testing these out in Australia and could have included them in the last post, but I could not. These babies were just too good that I HAD to talk about them in a separate post.


I got the colour As You Want Victoria, and the next day I went pick up three more colours- In Love With Ginger, Notting Hill Nude and Woke Up Like This. This range claims to “moisturize lips without compromising on colour” and it really does what it says. It has outstanding colour payoff, is moisturizing and lasts a long time. I wouldn’t say it lasts all day, because you and I both know that no makeup actually lasts all day, but the colour really stays on for hours. With these babies I can even skip lip balm, and my lips look soft and moisturized.

Top to bottom: Woke Up Like This, Notting Hill Nude, In Love With Ginger, As You Want Victoria

The only con is that the colour transfers to everything that touches your lips. It could be a little bit of a hassle, but don’t ask me how, there’s still colour on your lips even after them being touched by a million objects.

I would say the formula is perfect for fall and winter, and if you’re looking for something moisturizing, bright and bold, but not overly glossy. The collection has a huge range of colours, go grab one if you haven’t already and I promise you’ll go back and get more!

Hope you enjoyed! Until next time.

Aussie’s Goodies- Beauty

I knew I was gonna buy some beauty and skincare products while in Australia, what I didn’t know was I would almost completely refill my makeup bag with new products. Because, well, I had forgotten to take my makeup bag with me. Technically, I could still survive with the minimal makeups I took with me on the plane- a cream foundation compact which I used for touchups only, a sample sized loose powder, a mini blush, an eyeliner and a sample sized mascara. But why would I let go of the chance for me to buy new makeups? (Thank God I had my skincare items and makeup brushes… who knows what would happen if I didn’t?)

A lot of these products were not new, they were just new to me and have stolen my heart since.
