Hi there! Thanks for checking out my blog. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
*Some of the items in this blog were gifted to me at one time but all opinions expressed are strictly my own*
The holidays are coming up and this means parties, get-together and maybe some family portraits. Of course, this means you want to look your best without spending a fortune.
This is why I’ve put together a list of my favourite NYX Lipsticks.
NYX lipstick give you amazing pigment, great quality at an affordable price. They can also be found almost anywhere.
I found this limited edition Powder Puff Lip Cream at Marshalls for $5.
I love it’s creamy formula. It applies nicely and evenly with amazing precision. I find that it dries down well to a matte finish on the lip but it can dry your lips out. Your best bet is to use a lip balm prior to using it.
This warm toned nude coloured lip cream is great for a “no make-up, make-up” look. It’s very to apply, just squeeze from the bottom and put it on your lips.
This gorgeous liquid lipstick goes on like silk on the skin. It’s a dark chocolate taupe colour and is great for what I call a dramatized nude look.
Depending on the event, you may want to tone it down especially at the family get togethers. So I recommend for an easy application.
You can’t go wrong with this.
If you want to go for an ombre nude look, why not pair it up with a lighter toned liquid lipstick.
When pairing 2 differing shades, you can create a look that gives you fuller-looking lips without using bold colours.
I must warn you that these liquid lipsticks are highly pigmented and if you have dry lips be sure to exfoliate and use a lip balm before using them. Otherwise you may end up emphasizing the cracks in your lips instead.
I’ve personally gotten a lot of compliments with this liquid lipstick.
Like most of their liquid lipstick, I always make sure to wear a lip balm, especially with this one. It dries down to a matte finish. If I don’t wear a lip balm, my lips look like a crusty mess.
However when I do wear my lip balm, I look amazing. This lippie gives me matte shine easily without worrying about even application.
Also it gives me the ability to give my make-up a glam feel without spending an eternity on my face.
I bought this on a whim. I didn’t know what to expect to be honest. The first time I tried it, I hated it. I didn’t what I was doing.
Now however it’s a different story. It’s the easiest thing ever. This is like a contour and highlight lipstick in one. You get the lip liner and lipstick in crayon form in one package. This is great for people like me who want to try the latest trend like the ombre lip but have no idea what they’re doing.
For the novice I highly recommend it, but if you want that professional look please hire a make-up artist.
If you want a simple, easy glam look for the holidays, I highly this classic matte lipstick. I absolutely love this lipstick.
I pair this up with a cat-eye and off we go.
It’s honestly the best investment I’ve made when purchasing a red lipstick. This red is bold for the inner boss lady in all of us. Or, the last minute mom who just needs to glam up really quickly for that event you forgot was happening because of life.
I mean coffee is great and all, but a red lipstick just takes the term “bright eyes and bushy tailed” to a whole other level.
What are your favourite lippies for the holiday season?
