I have to admit that I am slightly obsessed with dystopian novels, and  love all those futuristic and manus x machina themes. And, yes, I do have a board on Pinterest.

It may have something to do with the fact that I did culture studies back at uni and read lots of philosophical theories on the subject.  Whatever it is, I have been always fascinated with the futuristic beauty.

Here is actually a photo I’ve posted on Instagram recently.

A Week in Lipsticks

Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit.  So here are the ones I wore last week…

A week in lipsticks Makeup4all

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)

I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade.  Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly.  This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip  swatch)

Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.

ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in #8  and Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Tesoro (review and lip  swatches). Wearing this combo on my Twitter profile photo.

This is my ultimate
