Coloured Raine matte liquid paint

Coloured Raine is a paraben and gluten free brand, that’s also vegan friendly and cruelty free. I’ve tried their liquid lipsticks in the past and i was very impressed with the colour pay off, longevity and the comfort on my lips!

The only con i have is that they are a bit on the pricey side, at £15, which is a bit steep for a lipstick, just my thought. Now i usually wait till there’s a sale on Beauty Bay so i can take advantage, which is what i did this time around.

Here’s a little run down on their matte liquid paint:

”A highly pigmented matte finish liquid lipstick in a variety of shades. ” It is opaque and has a light weight feel. It goes on as liquid and dries to a matte finish which is intense and will stay all day . It claims to be smudge proof.

Are they smudge proof? Yes! Are they intense? Yes! just apply two to three coats and you’ll get great colour pay off. Here are a few swatches i did.

This one is called “Classy” it is a pink- tinged white. If you are of a dark or deeper skin tone, i’d suggest using a brown lip liner. If you are light to medium, then just apply it as is and you are good to go.

This is “Whatever” and it’s a true mocha, one of my favourites. Would go nicely on medium to dark skin tones.

Excuse the silly face, haha. What’s life without a little silliness sometimes? Now this shade is also a favourite of mine, i wear this shade all year round. Suitable for all skin tones, the name is “Roulette”, a dark rouge with purple undertones.

Which was your favourite? Check video linked below to see what other shades i swatched. Thanks for stopping by, happy Friday.

Fall/Autumn lipsticks

Hey beauties, happy Friday!

If you’ve been following my blog, you’d know that i’m an avid lover of lipsticks, i just cant get enough. It doesn’t matter if i’m sporting a ‘no makeup’ look or no makeup at all, i can just add my favourite lipstick and i’ll look a bit more polished and presentable. I tend to do that sometimes when i can’t be asked to put a stitch of makeup on haha, you know those lazy days right?

I’ve rummaged through my collection and thought you might like my picks, especially since it’s vamp season. They are a mixture of matte and satin finishes, as i know sometimes matte lipsticks can be a little, shall i say intense or intimidating for some people, even though most liquid lipsticks tend to last longer than your average satin finish lipsticks. Ok enough babbling, let’s get into the lipsticks!

This is also another oldie but goodie. I was very much into Mac lipsticks before the take over of all the other amazing brands out there! Not to say i’m not a fan anymore, i totally am and always will be. I wear this shade all year round as well and it’s one of my favourites. It is described as a brightened pinky purple, with subtle cool undertones and a soft shine. This is Mac’s Up the Amp.
