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.
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.
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.
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.

Apart from lipsticks, Catrice also launched some other lip products in their spring/ summer 2017 line. I already reviewed the new ombre lipsticks and lip cushion lip glosses, but today we’re taking a closer look at 4 of the more inventive of the lip products Catrice launched. There is a lip scrub, two long lasting waterproof lip stains and a glossy pen like lipstick. These are my thoughts.

Catrice Aqua Ink Ultra Long-Lasting lip liner 050 Don’t Copy my Poppy

For this week’s video, I’ve decided to swatch out all of my Catrice lipsticks. I already did one on all of my MAC lipsticks, which I think you enjoyed. Lipswatch videos truly are a ‘thing’ on Youtube and I’ve watched many on different brands, but I haven’t seen many on Catrice just yet. So I took my 20 Catrice lipsticks and swatched them all out for you, both on my arm as well as on my lips.

Are you ready for a raving review? Because I sure am. Bite lipsticks are some of the best lipsticks on the market. There, I said it, straight off the bat. I already knew that as I had already tried their older Matte Creme lipsticks. However, they then proceeded to change their entire lipstick line and introduced the Amuse Bouche lipsticks. Would these be as good?
