I have here two high end and three drugstore’s lipsticks to talk about. They’re in no particular order.

From left to right:

Clinique Creamy Nude Soft Shine (03) Long lasting lipstick. The reason I chose this to be my top 5 fave is because I had it for more than 5 years and it’s one of my favorite nude color lipstick I ever found love in.¬†I share this because of the quality and the formula of this lipstick that has not changed over so many years. It’s a real keeper. It glides very smoothly and has medium coverage. It has a soft shine finish which makes lips look moist. There are 11 color shades available and I love the merlot red and watermelon shades. They are all beautiful colors with long lasting wear. It’s selling for $19.00 at Sephora and for that price point, why not.

Sothys Rouge Ardent. My first love of red lipsticks was from wearing this Sothys Red color shade. It has such rich pigmentation and fabulous matte color finish. It feels velvety and it smell awesome. I had this for a decade and since I have found more red favorites I kept it in my collection. The packaging has changed but the color intensity is simply gorgeous. There are many gorgeous colors available at Sothys. Please check on their website if you are interested with their products. Caution when wearing red lipstick Рto wear nude lip liner to outline lips to prevent red lipstick from running or bleeding.  And you, do you know Sothys? Do you like their products?

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Matte in Really Red (006). I love, love this chilli red matte lipstick. Yes, it’s matte and I love it. The color might not be as long lasting as the sheen or sheer lipsticks but it still¬†leaves some color stains behind. It doesn’t glide as smoothly but I love the high pigments formula. For a drugstore brand and the pricing, I’m totally going forward everything I used it up. I love this color so much I have another one as backup, just in case (chuckle!!!)

Rimmel Long Lasting Kate Moss in 107. This is also my favorite lip color. It has more berry red than tomatoes red. I found Kate Moss lipsticks awhile ago and so I grabbed one of this due to the velvety finish and beautiful pigmentation. It claims to be long lasting and it lasted me for 3 hours not 8 hours. This 107 color is the color Kate Moss wore on Rimmel’s website. Superb!!

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout Remarqueble (250). The color swatch of this colorburst is totaly amazing. I’m trully blown away by such mattifying balm it provides. Oh wow… a lip balm that’s so¬†moisturizing and had a finish beyond¬†comfort. It’s easy to carry around and easy to apply. No messy business and I like the packaging in a crayon type. It came with 10 dazzling color shades to select.¬†It’s such a fun color to have.

Top 5 Tuesday Favorite ~ Eyeliners

Top 5 faves eyeliners

Hey beauties, I’m back again with my Top 5 Tuesday Favorite. This week, I’m going to do my 5 favorite Eyeliners.¬†They are from drugstores, Wal-mart and¬†Target. I picked these¬†in pencil, gel, liquid and cream formula.

Let’s begin. I just picked them randomly and did a swatch and so they are all my faves and I used them all the time except the Essence superfine liner and¬†Annabelle¬†which I just got them recently. Most of the liners have been with me for awhile¬†whereas¬†some are more recent.

annabelle liner

1. Annabelle Retractable eyeliner in Jet Black¬†gives great precision line. It has a sharperner at the end of the pencil. Love the rich, intense color and it’s long lasting. It claims to have 12 hours wear and waterproof.¬†I got this for $9.99 at Target. Available in 6 different shades.

prestige liner waterproof

2. Prestige Waterproof eyeliner in 07 on Granite. It’s dark greyish just the color that I like. I need to have different color eyeliner for different eye looks. So, this¬†one works like a charm.¬†It has creamy texture¬†and glides beautifully. There’s some shine in this liner though.¬†Long lasting since it’s 100% waterproof. Great for those with oily eye lids.¬†It came with 8 selection of color shades to choose from. I remembered paying $2.99 when it was on special at a local drugstore.

bonnebell liner

3. Up next is my Bonnebell eye definer in Black Denim. This is my go-to liner everyday wear. I love how velvety it was on application and it’s opaque. It can be sharperned and it doesn’t drag or tug. It has 5 amazing¬†colors to pick. I had this one for a long time and I can’t remember where I got it from. Sorry! But they have a website which I’ll link it below.

essence superfine liner

4. My new Essence Superfine eyeliner pen 01 in Deep Black. I like the ultra long felt tip, which delivers¬†a pretty nice¬†black¬†line. I like using it to do a dramatic look like cat eyes or Arabian makeup look.¬†By drawing a few lines on the lids, the color will not fade as fast.¬†I would not recommend this¬†for those who has especially oily lids. It not waterproof so it comes off¬†quite fast.¬†But for the price of $2.99, I think it’s still a good steal.

maybelline gel liner

5.¬†Oh yes!¬†My last but not least favorite.¬†Maybelline Eyestudio gel liner in Charcoal¬†is an absolute product to have for eye makeup. It quite pigmented and I like the brush to define thin lines or dramatic looks. I used it¬†when I’m doing winged eyeliner look. It’s easy to control and will not smudge.¬†There were 4 different lasting color choice to pick.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush is also one of my favorite blush of all time. I had this for a while already and finally I got the chance to show case it as my Top 5. Yes it has those bouncy effect which I find it quite cool. This is a cream blusher that is so lightweight to powder form. It has a beautiful colour payoff and so a little goes a long way.

This little gem – Essence Kalinka blush. Believe it or not I got this for only $2.00 on liquidation sale. I simply love the cute and adorable Russian doll theme packaging that drew me to grab it. But I did find it quite pigmented and soft. It blends in quite well and it has a matte finish. Not too bad for a $2 bucks blusher.

Revlon Blush in 010 Classy Coral is a rich, quite pigmented and so wonderful soft when applying. The texture is soft and it blends pretty nicely. One thing to note is that the color of this Classy Coral which I picked has a very soft and light tone to it. So, lots of blending required for a fresh looking cheek. Good news is that the color is buildable so it works for me. There are 9 color shades available!

NYX blush is one of my¬†everyday blusher after I started using it. It’s very pigmented, creamy texture feel eventhough it is a powder blush.¬†Has a¬†shimmery effect too.¬† It creates a really natural glow when I applied it on my apple cheek.¬† It glides so smoothly and I absolutely love this blusher. By the way,¬†I got mine in copper for¬†an autumn look.¬†Available in 24 gorgeous and radiant colors!

Last but not least is my E.L.F. blusher. It has a silky finish which blends pretty well on my skin. The formula is silky to touch. It has a tiny, subtle amount of shimmer to it which gives off a natural looking glow. Average pigments and good value for money. I got mine at Target.

What is your favorite blusher from the drugstore?

Thanks for reading guys!
