Swatches & Review of Revlon Matte Lipstick in Smoked Peach









If you follow my blog, you would definitely know that I am a HUGE FAN of MATTE lipsticks.
REASON?

They last the longest, give you opaque full on coverage and they adhere to the lips so it doesn't fade as fast.

This is the Revlon Matte Lipstick in Smoked Peach 013. A very peachy nude tone. You know me, I LOVE NUDE LIPSTICKS! I am a MAC NC42 and this looks great on fair and tan skins. This color would not probably suit dark skins. It might look pretty ashy.

I tried it on today and when i applied it on it felt velvety, gives you full coverage, glided on easily, totally weightless on the lips and it lasted me about 4 hours before it started fading away. I must say - if you are using matte lipsticks you definitely need to apply lip balm to soften your lips as it can be drying.

I bought this for about approx Sgd$8.00 at the Dutyfree in Changi Airport. They have many other shades. I got 3 more. Will swatch them soon.

Swatches of NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Abbey Road














This is the NARS Larger Than Life eyeliner. The color is called Abbey Road. Check out the teal color!! Fell in love with it at first sight :)

I bought this from Space NK Boutique in Glasgow, Scotland when I was there in September. It retails for 17pounds (which is approx about $34sgd) which I thought was pretty cheap. They had many other colors but I got this one as I use alot of blue eyeliner under my eyes and the color is just so beautiful.

I tested this on my hand and it was sooooo creamy. It just glided on with no tugging at all. Smooooooth bebey!!! Let it set for a minute and then the color just locks in place. Doesnt budge at all. 

I went out yesterday with my bestfriend and i decided to use it as you can see from the above photos. Staying power was AMAZING! I have oily eyelids and oily skin and nothin stays on for me and I also have watery eyes. THIS DID stay on. No touch ups at all. I am really impressed with this eyeliner. 

I would definitely buy more of this eyeliners.

You can order them at Space NK.

Swatches - NYX Matte Lipstick in Angel





This is the NYX Matte Lipstick in Angel. I LOVE these lipsticks!! If you followed my Facebook Sungstardolly and Blog you would see my other post on the color - Audrey

I can't get enough of these lipsticks. Pigmented. Long lasting. Opaque. Great variety of colors. Affordable. 

This shade is more of a peachy coral tone. Very bright and neon-like. And that's the reason why i went very simple on the face, yes i have NO eyeliner on. lol. Just focused on the LIPS :)

You can order them from Cherryculture.
