I’ve always invested in high-end skincare and makeup products. But this year I’ve decided to go against the status quo, and relish in new makeup products, be it high-end or drugstore.
I’ve gone red lipstick crazy. I’m not sure if it’s because I wanted to embrace the inner Parisian, or that I feel extremely confident and ready to conquer the world. Choosing the right signature red lipstick has always been a struggle for most women, yet, somehow when we do feel like we’ve found the right shade that is complimentary we feel like we’ve hit the jackpot and the world should know. I’m not a stranger to wearing red lipstick, having different shades from Mac, Chanel and YSL to adding Nyx into my collection.
I’ve always adhered to the advice my mum gave me years ago, “It’s better to splurge on high quality, classic item than to spend money on cheap items that would cost you more money replacing them in the long run”. And quality over quantity has always become a constant reminder when it comes to purchasing clothing and makeup item. Hence the reasons I’ve always invested in high-end skincare and makeup products. But this year I’ve decided to go against the status quo, and relish in new makeup products, be it high-end or drugstore. To my surprise, I’m pleased I made this purchase from Nyx. Just because I’m always investing in high-end beauty products doesn’t mean I’m new to Nyx beauty products. Two years or more ago, I went to a Nyx event and ended up bringing a big bag filled with Nyx items. As expected I gave the unflattering shades to friends and kept some for myself.
Now that I have quite a bit of knowledge when it comes to makeup, or so I would like to think, I opt for this darling Nyx Liquid Suede in Kitten Heels, pairing it with the lip liner of the same name, and Nyx Suede Matte lip liner in Cherry Skies. Costing only £7, this red liquid lipstick glide on the lips with ease and sets into a Matte Finish. I’m in awe with the shade and texture especially when it’s paired with the lip liner injecting an orange undertone that is complimentary to dark skin tone. Warning: be prepared to turn heads whenever you have this pigmented classic, sexy liquid lipstick on your lips. It will permanently imprint your face in people’s memory. If you’re ready to conquer the world and feel utterly sexy while doing it, this lipstick and liner are for you. On days I want to feel like adding a define definition, I accompany the Kitten Heels with Cherry Skies to create a wine shade, making it perfect for the autumnal season.
Even though I adore these products, I can’t ignore the fact that the wand of the liquid lipstick makes it a messy affair when applying it on the lip with two, three minutes drying time. I proud myself on the ability to eat a full meal without my lipstick rubbing off, only because I eat like the Kardashians, or in a sexy manner as my friends will put it, but this shade doesn’t make it through a full course meal. Sometimes reapplying your lipstick can cause dryness, and cracking on the lips. However, I would still recommend this product, based on the fact that three friends of mine I’ve purchased this item after seeing me wearing it throughout the summer, and it makes me feel and look beautiful.
