To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.
I’ve made myself choose lipsticks in different colour families, so here are: plum, red and pink. I don’t like orange, nude or any other shades that much.
Since I have already reviewed each lipstick, I have just included the links. I also have to mention that Clarins was recently reformulated, and the new version is even better!

Since I have already posted about a vampy lipstick for the #LipstickWeek, it is now time for a red. Guerlain KissKiss Shaping Cream Lip Colour in Rouge Kiss 325. And I have to mention that I have a cute mini version.
Not everyone is a fan of matte and full on lipsticks, and if you are not and miss the good ol’ comfortable and creamy lipsticks – you should really consider this one. KissKiss has a soft and comfortable formula (say hello to mango butter and hyaluronic acid spheres) which glides on the lips and leaves that satin, almost-glossy finish. You can
Since we are having a Lipstick Week, it is about time to finally write a full review of my lipstick obsession – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania.
I’ve picked it up back in the winter and already featured it a lot of times on my Instagram and in my favourites, too.
Long-time readers will know that I am a huge fan of berry and plum vampy lipsticks and I have quite few but I’ve picked this one up not only because of the shade but also because of the name. Long story short – Transylvania will always have a special place in my heart, although I have been there only several times.
But, back to the lipstick…
I really, really love it. As the name suggests, it is a
I was sent some samples from the young British brand Bagsy, and I am ready to share about the two lip products already.
Wow Lips Full Colour Chubby Stick in 02 Happy Days and Lip Velvet Soft Matte Lip Colour in 04 Living The Dream. Both are very girly, pretty and Spring-like shades of pink.
The first thing you notice when it comes to Bagsy is the absolutely gorgeous packaging which is unique for every product (there are maximum 4 shades in each line), it helps to create the mood for a particular shade. And, although the pinks I have here are not my personal favourite colours on myself, I can totally appreciate the floral and feminine print, for some reason it also makes me think of ballerinas.
Besides the design, you just can’t help but fall in love with the quotes they’ve printed on each packaging. We have enough of negativity in life already, so makeup should bring a smile on our faces, and Bagsy products do exactly this. And, yes, EVERY girl deserves to be pretty today!
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…
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.
This is my ultimate
