Lipstick Diaries

Hi Chicas, hope everyone's been having a fab week so far. I apologize for not posting regularly these past few weeks. My life has been super duper hectic but thankfully, I am starting a very much needed vacay this afternoon- whoop! 
Usually, my posts are about my outfits or celeb style, but I thought I'd do something different and chronicle some of the 30-something lipsticks & lip glosses I own. I took these pictures this past December but never got around to posting them. Here goes...

This is one of my favorite pink shades. For a price tag of 99c, I am definitely getting a bang for my buck. This lipstick really pops and is comparable to some of the higher brands. It's creamy, moisturizing, and last for about 5 hours.


I just discovered Cherry Frost in December. It's very similar to an old favorite of mine (see here).It has a silk finish  and it is extremely moisturizing. However, It's not your everyday red lipstick as it has shimmer in it.

Crystal lilac(revlon) is my all time favorite everyday lip color. I love that the color pops, but is still safe to wear in the day time. The downside is that it lasts for only 2.5 hours, and I find myself reapplying it quite a lot during the day.

I am not a big fan of girl about town. It's suppose to be a creme lipstick, but it dries out my lips and has this weird texture on my skin. Me no likey!

This lipstick really is a deep purple(almost black). The color was way darker than I liked and I actually applied purple eye shadow to make it less dark. Seeing as it's not a typical lip color, I doubt I'll get a lot of use out of it!

I love the colors. I want a purple lipstick as well. The one I recently bought is a deep purple like yours and I too would rather have a lighter shade. But it still looks great!

You look good in just about every lips stick

You look sooooo good in all those shades, it's like your complexion is a perfect match to all of them! Not to mention how jealous i am of your dewy skin... That first wet n wild one is really cool. My favorite go-to is MAC's Lady Danger and NARS' Carthage.

I actually really like Girl About Town. At first I thought it was too pink and bold but it grew on me. It was suggested by The Pink Joy.

My other favourites are:
MAC Cockney - a sort of sheer, cherry red with gold flecks
MAC Hug Me - Almost nude rosey colour
Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Pleasant Plum - Fill in the lip and put a bit of gloss or balm and it lasts all day. I LOVE IT!!
