Today I want to share with you a bit on lipstick.We have heard the qoutes of when in doubt wear lipstick or give a woman a redlipstick and she will conquer the world. There is something truthful about that sometimes I’m so busy as a mom I hardly have time to fix my hair let alone do my make up and it’s time to go out for lunch but one thing I always remember is my nude lipstick from Mac it never leaves my handbag, it’s definitely my when in doubt.I love redlipstick and honestly i always feel like i can conquer the world with the amount of confidence it gives me.
When it comes to lipsticks you can buy from very affordable,affordable and expensive, the look you get will be very similar depending off course if you like matte or glossy. I have tested lipsticks in these categories and honestly there is not much difference so I think it’s best to go with your pocket or be an all rounder like me.
This Rouge Dior 999 matte lipstick is my most expensive I’m happy to say it’s the only one I own at the moment maybe I’ll try different colors from Chanel or Yves saint Laurent etc and keep them for special occasions or as souvenirs haha.This lipstick gives me so much, I have a problem with dry lips that escalates the minute I put on lipstick, but I find this one very moisturizing though it’s a matte. It lasts for about 16 hours even after a few glasses of wine which is a winner because touching up lipstick every hour is not my cup of tea.
As you can see here Mac is my absolute favorite. I’m growing a collection that’s how much I love their lipsticks. The nudes are my everyday wear. The only difference between their Retro matte and Dior on my sensitive lips is that Mac tends to really dry my lips even more. I also have to touch it up a few times even though it’s a long wear.
Then I have my Yves Rocher lipsticks which I also love for different reasons. They give a different feel altogether, the texture is different they have a slight scent to them.They are moisturizing and are naturally made.
There you have it but with all that lipstick the lips always need care, especially if you suffer from dry lips like me you have to go the extra mile. My lip routine starts with this Lush sugar plum exfloliater besides the fact that it’s natural and freshly handmade, I love this exfloliater it smells divine sometimes I eat it…obviously by mistake but it tastes great or you can always use the sugar in your kitchen with a bit of water or dip a towel in warm water and scrub the lips to remove all the dead skin. You will feel the difference right away. Moisturize, moisturize I can’t say that enough it should be your bedtime routine like washing your face or brushing your teeth. Remember any healing happens when we are asleep.
Rouge Dior 999 matte= €35,50.
Mac cosmetics lipsticks = €19,50
Yves Rocher = €12,90
