My newest makeup addiction is lipsticks. I go through several phases in makeup and have a particular favourite item I absolute must have at that point of time, and at this time, it’s lipsticks. Specifically the ones from NYX Cosmetics.
They have several ranges, but I’ve fallen in love with the NYX Matte Lipsticks as they are highly pigmented (which is perfect for people with darker lips like me!) and long-lasting as well.
Reasons I love this brand include the fact that their products are anti animal cruelty hence not tested on animals (please check before purchasing makeup, some brands still do animal testing which is completely avoidable 😦 ). Another reason is the price range; it’s at a reasonable pricing that allows even college students to purchase it. Quality at an affordable price, I’m sold!
Here are a few lipsticks I managed to grabs;
This shade is called Indie Flick. It’s a tomato red colour with tints of orange. It’s vibrant and looks great against my dark skin. Most people believe (and it’s a false one) that dark skinned girls can’t wear bright, vibrant colours. I’d like to prove them wrong & this colour does just that 🙂
Here are a few more colours that I got, that I absolutely love against my dark skintone;
1. Audrey – It’s a light shade of pink with a nude tint that can be worn daily and easy to match.
2. Perfect Red – One of the rare bright red lipsticks that look great on fair skin as well as dark skin.
3. Sweet Pink – Probably my favourite Barbie shade of pink lipstick I own. It’s bright colour is not too intense, and subtle which makes it perfect.
4. Tea Rose – A soft pink shade, with a really sweet tone.
My suggestion is, try the testers before making a purchase & try as many colours as you’d like. Make sure you have minimal make up, or nude tones to ensure you know what colours work against your skintone. I usually wipe off all my makeup when testing colours, just to be extra sure 🙂
These lipsticks are sold at Sephora for RM26 each. Again, such a steal! Besides their lipsticks, I also use their concealer, and powder (that provides darker shades for dark skinned people like me, another plus point!) & their brow kit.
The great news is, if you’re already a Sephora member, there’s a 20% sale going on from today to the 30th of November. Check your email/sms! 🙂 ;
& on makeup related note, Inglot will be having a sale as well;
Happy makeup shopping, makeup lovers! Hope you guys score some really great finds 🙂
