BEAUTY BITS #1 - LipsticksThursday, January 16, 2014
Don't worry I won't turn into a beauty blog, but I do like beauty and make up like every girl. And in my opinion fashion goes hand in hand with beauty, so every now and then you can expect a beauty/make up related article.
When I was younger I never really was a lipstick girl, I always preferred to go for a more heavy or colorful eye look. But the last year I've discovered lipsticks and I can't live without them anymore.
It's so easy to pop on a lipstick, some eyeliner and mascara and you're ready to go.
Bellow I've swatched my most used lipsticks, as you can see most of them are red or have a more red undertone. When it comes to nail polishes and lipsticks if I'm not stopped I would buy every red there is.
I tried taking pictures of the lipsticks actually on, but it was getting rather dark so I'm afraid you'll have to do with just the swatches on my arm. Kudos to all those beauty bloggers who always have ten different swatches of the same color, it's super hard work getting those things right.
Gentle Nude - Catrice absolute moisture / 904 - Kiko Smart lipstick / Vivid Rose - Maybelline Colorsentational / Burgundy Wine - Catrice rouge satin / Princess Peach - Catrice ultimate colour / Oh Juicy - Catrice ultimate color / Spicy Coral - Catrice absolute moisture / 909 - Kiko Smart lipstick / Glamorous Red - Catrice absolute moisture / Heartbreaker - Rimmel lasting finish lipstick / Kate Moss 01 - Rimmel lasting finish lipstick
Unfortunately Gentle Nude, Burgundy Wine, Spicy Coral and Glamorous Red are no longer available.
If you're looking for cheap good lipstick I really recommend Kiko, they have amazing colors and they stay on pretty long too. I'm not sure how available Catrice is in other countries (except Belgium, Netherlands and Germany) but if you can check them out, do it, they are my go-to drugstore brand for everything make-up.
