Summer glow…


Never say never…

In the past I never really went out of my way to be bold and noticeable.

This didn’t mean that I was hiding and keeping it simple, because simple is sometimes the best choice, I just never found myself in a position when I needed to be bold.

…but life is always funny that way.

We always get to a point when we need to take a leap and get out of the bubble we call comfort zone just because it makes us feel different, better and more courageous.

You really don’t need that much bravery to try out a new lipstick but you do need to have choices if you want to go for a bolder colour.

891 Sapphire Siren – Bold Collection Maybelline New York

This photo shoot was extremely fun and I hope I’ve made these bold colours justice 🙂

I have always loved the Maybelline lipsticks; not just because they have a huge range of colours but mostly because they smell absolutely delicious!!!

You don’t believe me…try one!

 

Vivid Vixen - Bold Maybelline New York
890 Vivid Vixen – Bold Collection Maybelline New York

Besides the amazing choice in shades, this lipstick is smooth and tasty on the lips; makes you feel like you could conquer the world just by having one in your bag.

I might be bold saying this, but I can only tell you how I feel when I use it 🙂

 

 

Might it be a pink summer afternoon or a vivid blue party night out…the choice is always yours; but don’t ever forget…a little change is good for the soul!

Aromatic temptation…


‘ Sometimes we just need an appealing impulse.’

Today’s post it’s meant to be a sweet temptation for the eyes, taste and lips…

This is probably one of my favourite photo shoot sessions I have had since starting Sweet Lips Chronicles. Everything came out exactly how I have imagined it… but now, it’s your turn to let me know if you have found it tempting 🙂

1st Temptation … 166 Divine

When in Paris…with hot red lips!

I love Gosh lipstick, besides the huge selection of colours, glossy or matte it has an extravagant appeal that is someway very sexy…I mean, just look at it 🙂

The texture is just tasty and smooth with a sugary scented dream.

2nd Temptation … 161 Sweetheart

 

Sweetheart is part of the nude family but on the lips it has a beautiful natural shine, so it’s perfect for an organic look.

It’s somehow similar to another shade from the Gosh collection – Amethyst, which is more like a nude gloss – winter tone.

3rd Temptation … 158 Yours Forever

 

I had so much fun photographing this shade…I hope I brought it to you in the best light possible.

I absolutely love this colour, it’s very summer like, warm and velvety.

It’s the tone between a darker pink and a saturated coral and if you want, it can be ‘yours forever’ 🙂

4th Temptation … 159 Boheme

 

Get your artistic side out and let it embrace you graciously…

This colour has a pink shade on the lips, more towards a natural appearance which is always good when you want to test this brand.

So…don’t wait very long before you give it a go.

5th Temptation … 165 Temptation

 

This is one the most beautiful shades of pink I have ever had in a lipstick … so silky and  attractive that I always come back for more.

I hope this post successfully tempted you in trying the brand out as I must say…if you have dreamed about sweet lips…it could all become reality.

Kiss it sweet…


‘Take a snap of the moment and hide it…you never know when you will need it.’

 

Today’s post its all about comparison but also about choice…the best sweet choice.

As I add more to my Sweet Lips Chronicles, I am realising that it’s about so much more than just a new colour or a new brand of make-up; I am slowly discovering how visual everything is and how much I love photography.

So, my lovely reader…if this is the first time you have stopped here, welcome and thank you for giving me the chance to share this with you 🙂

Optical illusion 

Revlon 715 Arabica… in case you were wondering.

This range of lipsticks from Revlon its not the most exciting that I have in my collection but its very practical.

If you are the person who puts a lot of weight on functionality and doesn’t necessarily have a lot of time to compare and test, this range is perfect.

The shades are soft but they do make a statement; they are easy to use for those crazy mornings when you do not even have time to look in the mirror.

Secret garden

Revlon 770 Twilight

The collection of shades is a small one but you do have pretty much everything you need, your red, purple, brown and nude…

The texture is very smooth and it does hydrate for a long period throughout the day…the catch is that you will have to apply it a few times.

My favourite

Revlon 705 Dawn

This is the shade I go to… simple but effective for those times I need to trust a lipstick as everything else around me is moving with the speed of light.

As much as we want to be bold all the time, being practical is a blessing and you definitely need a product that you can trust.

So if you have not yet tried it and it looks tempting…go for it!

More than just a shade…


It has been a while since I have written or blogged about anything…

I think sometimes you just need some time off or life takes over and you don’t even realise how long it has been since you’ve done something you love…

But…let’s not talk about the past; let’s take a peak into the future or even truly look at the present!

My Sweet Lips Chronicle was always meant to be a little piece of what I think its beautiful and it deserves to be shared with those of you who might feel the same.

A lipstick might have been just a lipstick 30 years ago, but its not just that anymore.

Most of us use it to make a statement, to feel empowered and bold…but let’s not forget that sometimes we just use it because it makes us experience another side of us!

Colour is Art

 

I absolutely love this Bourjois lipstick (Rouge Edition no.41 Pink Catwalk)…and not just because it looks amazing in pictures 🙂

On lips it looks like a soft but bold pink, which is always attractive…

If you have never tried a pure pink lipstick because you think its not for you but your hidden thoughts always circle around the possibility, this Bourjois colour could be your best first choice.

Dark and Beautiful…

You can always choose Revlon Black Cherry if you are daring and want something different.

There was a time when we only used dark colours as part of evening make-up…but we are living interesting times and as the saying goes ‘rules are meant to be broken‘ … if its for sweet lips 🙂

Photography is art…make-up is a beautiful indulgence that could easily become an artistic tool of self expression.

At least…that is exactly what it has turned out to be for me!

See you soon…

Beautiful Vision


“My Plan for Today…wear lipstick and be sexy”

 

In my search for the perfect lipstick, I’ve stumbled upon a new brand…KIKO MILANO.

Besides beautiful colours, this brand is a total vision to photograph.

Kiko Milano

There is a certain appeal towards being adventurous and this brand just makes it so easy.

The world of saucy lips is full of fascination and colour, which makes it effortless to find what we want.

When it comes to texture, shade or aroma, we have become a bit more selective.

The old simple red lipstick, will just not do…we need scarlet, ruby or cherry…claret and wine and sometimes the bold cardinal with a touch of strawberry fragrance…we demand sweet scent and smooth finish, consistency and endurance.

Did you ever think that buying the perfect lipstick will involve so many variables?

Is it just me, or getting your make-up bag sorted resembles a bit like when you try to discover your new favourite coffee flavour?

You can’t just pop-in your corner coffee shop and ask for a plain simple coffee…

Do you like it short, medium or grande…with a hint of caramel, chocolate or pumpkin…fat free or whole milk…latte or mocha?

Hint of Red

If once upon a time you’ve thought there is no choice, today you might reflect on that and   appreciate the countless variety of beautiful glow that is available to you.

Sometimes it takes just one look to find the one, between the many or several searches to discover the unlimited collection you can possibly end up with…either way, the journey is worth it 🙂

Circle of Love


Life is too short to wear bad lipstick…so dream a little and dare even more!

It’s been a few months now, since I have dived into the fabulous world of lipsticks and the audacious circle of vibrant colours…and I will never look back 🙂

This week, we’ll stop and take a stare at the Avon Matte Collection…

SONY DSC
Colours of the rainbow

I must admit, matt colours were never my first choice… but I always wanted to try them out. I wouldn’t choose a matt texture for every colour but I have discovered that most of the time, when it comes to bold and strong shades, matt is the way to go.

While writing, I am browsing through the many photos I took and I find them more inspiring than ever…maybe because, there is something fascinating about how colours make us feel.

Did you ever find yourself smiling without a real argument while admiring a bright and colourful scenery? We always say the same thing…‘it is beautiful’…’it is breathtaking’…or we just gaze silently; but we never really know how to explain the reasons why…

Colours are somehow like magic…they take us by surprise…they give us a warm and misty feel…they make us smile and light up.

Who could have guessed that a lipstick has such a great potential? 🙂

Splendidly Fuchsia by Avon

You deserve to be always smiling…and if a bold beautiful colour can make that happen…what are you waiting for?

Choose your ‘circle of love’, enhance your collection of sweet lips and master the power of silky touch…you never know what you might uncover.

Keep on smiling and just know that you do not always need a reason!

Julia
