Happy Hump Day people!
So, I’ve been thinking a while about sharing current favourites/things/bits and bobs I’ve been inclined to lately. And recently, it’s been wearing lip creams and liquid lipsticks. I know that most of you know me for my matte lippies, so I know liquid lipsticks were bound to be tested. I’ve found myself reaching for them more often than not, as well as trying out new makeup looks, which essentially is just wearing a blush/face powder as my eyeshadow, without eye liner and wearing the best mascara ever.
I don’t know about you, but do you get excited whenever you get a new makeup item? For me it usually starts like with “yaaasssssss guuurrrrrllllll you’re gonna slay in this new lippy!” to things like, “OMG I hope I meet all those people who said I have big lips to see my slaying the damn life out of this makeup!” Haha. This mostly happens when I try out a new product -case in point- the mascara in this post. I got it as a gift from an aunt who came visiting, and when I tried it out, I swear it made me look like I was low key wearing falsies! I live for such mascaras. THEY. GIVE. ME. LIFE.
Anyway, I know most of you have probably never seen me talk about liquid lipsticks too. (Remember this post??) To be honest, I’d never tried a liquid lipstick until about July last year. I was somewhat fearful of how they’d apply, because trust me I get a bit OCD when applying my lipstick. I was lucky enough to get my first liquid lipstick from the Kat Von D brand, and I fell in love. The rest of the NYX lipsticks shown in today’s post were also gifts. I’m so lucky to have very generous friends who know my love for lipsticks.
Waaaaaayyyyy up I feel blessed. Ha.
I know some of you will ask where the lipsticks are from. You can purchase the stuff through various Instagram online stores. You can’t go wrong. Also, my previous post shows an example of how I’ve been loving wearing my makeup lately, the bold lip, no-eyeliner look. Let me know if you want a step-by-step tutorial on how I achieved it.
Starting with the NYX products from left:
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi (my current fave nude)
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen (wearing this in this post)

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo (wearing this in this IG photo but also used MAC Currant Lip Pencil to create the ombre effect)
Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Vampira
MAC Currant Lip Pencil
Maybelline New York Lash Sensation Mascara
Jordana Cosmetics Creamy Concealer in Beige (I use this to highlight and conceal my eyebrows. It’s pretty affordable and does great justice to my brows!)
What beauty products have you been loving lately?
Hope you’re all having a great week!
