If you follow me on Instagram or read my About section – you have probably noticed that black and red are my favourite colours. I can never have too many black clothes or too many red lipsticks and nail polishes.
I have written about that so many times, but today I want to share my latest red lip combo obsession which I have discovered “by accident ” and have been wearing for weeks now. It is the red that I have been rocking all holidays. I even included a photo…
So what are the products?
I have shared my love for this so many times… I like how long lasting and matte it looks, and the deep cool toned red. But I just wanted something brighter and warmer. So I have decided to put Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Tesoro (review and swatches; £15/$22. You can buy Stila from Sephora and Beauty Bay. Sephora) on top. On its own Stila is too warm and orange for my complexion. But together it was a dream-came-true combination.A classic matte, vibrant, full-on red! Show stopper, if you want. It alsoRead More
I find that the name Forever Yours is a good one for this product, as it is very long-lasting. Despite being matte, the formula is soft and glides on easily. And I love using it all over the lips. For a natural effect I then blend it in with my fingers or – for a more statement visual I just add two layers to build up the colour.
I would suggest using a lip balm before (but not straight before the application), as your lips need to be a a good condition for such product. Obviously, being aRead More
I am a big fan of ArtDeco’s Soft Lip Liner Waterproof so decided to pick up a berry/plum shade from the line. Unfortunately, the shade I wanted was sold out so I’ve got a cool toned pink one.
It is called 80 Precious Plum but for me it is a perfect “my-lips-but-better-and-brighter” colour, my everyday shade. It is darker and deeper than my natural lip colour but the tone is very similar, so it works great.
This pencil is soft and long-lasting, as the name suggests. I love using it with lipsticks, all over the lips for a matte effect of with a gloss on top.
I think it is a fantastic lip pencil for an affordable price. I am definitely coming back for aRead More
I’ve bought this liner a long time ago but never wrote about it so I think today is the perfect day to do so, since we are talking about ArtDeco anyway.
I have ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in #8 which is described as Medium Cadmium Red on the website.
The thing is that I love pretty much everything about it: from the design to the price and from the shade to the quality.
It is really long-lasting, looks beautiful on the lips and this particular shade is simply gorgeous. I love using it all over my lips but it is great as liner as well, obviously. You can also add a gloss on top for the different effect.

I’ve picked up one colour just to try out and see my impression, although I was tempted to get a lot of different shades. I’ve got the shade called Dark Brown which looked like the colour I would love and use a lot.
I was really impressed with the pigmentation of this particular pencil, as it is so intense and the shade is buildable. The formula is nice as well, it glides on smoothly and is easy to blend.
I am also so happy about the colour that I’ve chosen as Dark Brown is the exact shade that I love using for my daily makeup look. I just use this Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil on my lid and on the bottom lash line and blend it with my No7 Smokey Eyeliner Brush and MAC 217, add some mascara and I am ready to go.
This is is how the colour looks like with the flash
