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 aRead More
Makeup4all will turn 8 this February but somehow I never did any themed weeks yet. But I’ve decided to give it a go, because why not?
So, I announce the Lipstick Week.
I will post about the new releases, will review some lipsticks from my collection and will feature my current favourites, along with the most popular lipstick posts in the last almost 8 years.
And it seemed like a cool idea to start this week with an overview of PAT McGRATH LABS Lust 004 Lipstick Kit, $60 from Sephora.
Each kit comes it Pat’s signature packaging with sequins and includes two matte lipsticks, a clear vinyl gloss, a metallic gold pigment, and a microfine glitter.

There are 12 shades to choose from.

Although I personally love berry and plum shades all year round, they look especially nice in Autumn/Winter. Recently my friend asked me what lipstick I was wearing as she really loved it, and was surprised to hear that it was Maybelline. This made me think that I should write about affordable berry lipsticks that I would recommend. So here are three different options…
Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick in 06 Plum Russian (review and lip swatches)
It is a gorgeous glossy plum which feels comfortable on the lips, and is super easy to apply as it comes in a crayon form. You can get a sheer colour pay-off or layer it for an intense effect. It can also be worn on top of other lipsticks if you want to create an extra sheen/gloss. The other day my Mum saw this lipstick, and loved so it much, that now I have to get a new one for myself (as she “borrowed” mine) .
