NYX: Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red

Hi everyone!

If you're interested in red lipsticks, then this review is for you ;)

I think that every girl should have at least one shade of  red color that suits her.
The red shade that suits my fair skin is the one with blue undertones, the pure wine red.
It can compliment my skin, my hair and my teeth.

Well, I find that classic red can be also very interesting on brunettes.
This is what this NYX red lipstick is all about!

First of all, we're talking about a matte classic red lipstick.
It's not exactly that wine red I love, but more of a retro classic red, like movie stars wear on red carpet ;)
It makes my smile brighter, it's amazing.
The matte texture of Nyx range though, I find it to be not the most suitable for my taste.
Although it's a matte finish, it is creamy when I put it on, it glides easily on my lips, it has a nice finish, but it doesn't sit on my lips smoothly. It creates little flakes that I haven't, even after exfoliating and good moisture before the application. Also, the color stops to one part of my low lip, and then boom, the pink shade of my natural lip is there. Do you know what I mean? Maybe I'm used to more satin and creamy texture lipsticks.
Apart from that though, I still wear it with an essence lipliner in Femme Fatale so as to prevent those flakes to be shown, plus to give even more intensity and depth to its lovely color payoff.
If you wish, due to its amazing pigmentation, you don't need to use a pencil, as you can fill in any areas with the same lipstick. Love how long wearing and pigmented it is too and that's why I keep reaching for it, as for nights out it's a miracle. One or two layers and you're ready.
I won't buy though again this matte range as it is not my type, feeling my lips like " look, I'm wearing a bright color, find the flaws ".
The package is ok, nothing fancy to brag. The smell again ok, pleasant when you have it on.
It's a 7 euros product, for 4.5 gr. Amazing value of money, yes yes!



In general, I do love its shade, pigmentation, finish and duration. We have a tiny bit issue with the matte feeling on my lips but ok, nothing to shout out.
Please let me know any tips of how you use any color you may have from this Matte range, so as to make the best of it.

Have a nice weekend!

Maybelline Color Tattoo: On and On Bronze

Hey everybody!

This is an anti-lover eyeshadow girl talking... :)
In general, I do prefer a light beige-champange with satin finish eyeshadow on my lids and a muted mat light brown color for my outer corner. Only these.
That's because I do like keeping my eyes "clean" and "fleshy" toned, away from darker colors.

BUT, this cream eyeshadow has saved me! Maybelline must have thought of me.

What is this exactly? Well, basically an all over eyelid color in a gel formula, that stays on all day.
As I don't wear eyeshadows, slapping on in the morning only this one has become an enjoying part of my routine.
The reason why is due to its amazing color. It's a true bronze frosty color, with shimmers, suitable for every day, that gives your eye look that glow, brown or green eyes will love, summer or winter. You don't need much, as a little goes a long way. It's super pigmented and only one touch can give you an amazing swatch.
I do love the small made of glass pot and the way I can only have this one on, on its own, with no other outer corner colors and I'm ready to go. I don't have to have in my already bulky make up bag when I'm away any other shadows and that's a plus for me.
It's a product that can be used by itself without looking poorly made. Just this and I'm ok!
What I also enjoy doing is still using only this one eyeshadow both for my outer V too, with a second layer and it will lightly darken your corner. With only one product! I'm impressed! Oh oh oh, I apply it with my fingers! No brushes, so more space to my bag! whoot whoot :)
You need to know though, that you have to work pretty fast so as to blend it out, otherwise you might need to put a little bit extra effort on blending.
I do love that it stays in place all day, without those powdery residues, plus it's easy to put in on, like you're putting a cream or something. It's a piece of cake!
Loads of mascara plus this shiny effect and you're a pretty damn girl :)

  
It's a 6 Euros jar from feelunique that will last you for ages! There are less pricey same type gel eyeshadows from Essence, plus from more high end like Mufe. I think this middle range price product is the best. Also, it's a product you can definitely buy online, as every swatch you google, it's exactly how the product looks like in real life. That's how I do buy these kind of beauties. Due to its formula, it's amazing for summer as it won't melt or something. An easy life-saver recommended product!
Tell me your thoughts if you do have the same shade or anything else you may want to ask down below.

Enjoy your day
