Ofra liquid lipsticks

Ofra liquid lipsticks

Still looking for the best liquid lipstick? Then look no further, because I found it. Most people’s gripe about liquid lipsticks is how uncomfortable they are. Since they dry down matte, the lipsticks usually leave a layer that feels like you put vinyl on your lips and that forms a barrier to anything that might touch it. When it wear off it crumbles down instead of fading away, which makes touching up a heinous job. Not with the Ofra ones!  ofra liquid lipstick review swatch charmed santa ana manhattan

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips & Matte X Lippiestix

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips & Matte X Lippiestix

If you’re thinking: hey Maaike, didn’t you do this review a few months ago? Then why, yes, I did, but today’s post will feature some different colors and textures. I simply fell in love with my Colourpop products so much the first time round, that I placed a new order back when they had another discount and free international shipping. Last time I felt I got mostly winter shades, so I wanted to get some brighter and more wearable shades. The more wearable shades will be coming up in a different blog post. So today’s focus will be the brighter shades.  colourpop lippiestix matte x viper mars trust me ultra matte lips lipstick review swatch liquid

3-in-1 lipstick review: Maybelline, MAC, Bourjois

3-in-1 lipstick review: Maybelline, MAC, Bourjois

When you buy 3 lipsticks from different brand, but they all fit the same look and feel, what do you do? Yes, you lump them together into one review. I did pick all of these up around the same time though, but just hadn’t gotten around to the review just yet. I bought these in London last year, but since the Maybelline and Bourjois lipsticks only made their way into our drugstores here fairly recently, I decided this was the best time to post.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Is it too late to hop onto this bandwagon? I don’t think so. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are a standard in many beauty lovers routine and I wanted to know what the fuss was all about. I used to own one of these in Addis Ababa, but hardly wore it. Turns out that that is one of the worst performing shades in the range. So it wasn’t me. When I found out that some shades perform better than others, I decided to try some more. Now I know what the fuss is all about.

Dior Addict lipgloss & lipstick

Dior Addict lipgloss & lipstick

I’ve been massively into pink lips these past few weeks. This means that I’ve been busting out every shade of pink lipstick in my collection. Today I’d like to focus on some of my more high end products in this very particular category. Last year, Dior reformulated their Addict lip line and I decided to try some products when there was a discount on.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick: Lolita, Bauhaus & Nosferatu

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick: Lolita, Bauhaus & Nosferatu

This isn’t my first review of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. In fact, I already did two before (here and here) and it is one of my favorite liquid lipstick formulas. So that this will be a raving review should come as no surprise. It is exactly because I like these so much that I decided to add three more shades to my collection. And I love them all.

Catrice Lip Foundation & Velvet Matt lip pencil

Catrice Lip Foundation & Velvet Matt lip pencil

A very overlooked product from Catrice’s current spring/ summer range are their lip pencils. I haven’t heard anyone talk about these yet and to be quite honest I had all but forgotten about them. When I first spotted these, I was intrigued by their neutral tones. There are two types: lip foundation and velvet matt lip pencils. I tried some from each line.
