Urban and Wickedly Wonderful


Lipstick and heels…two things I can’t live without 🙂

If you ever had to choose a prime brand to try, Urban Decay is the one!

Smooth, sexy and tasty are just the first three features come to mind when I think about this brand of lipsticks.

FireBird – Urban Decay

I could just spend hours looking at the collection of colours and still not be able to decide for which one I want to go for… hard life 🙂

So far I have tried three shades and a lip liner (Blackmail) and I must say, I am a happy customer.

Firebird is by far my love at first sight or should I say at first kiss.

It does surprise me as it’s a very bold colour and not something I would have chosen in the past, but then again it seems I am becoming more confident and fearless…which I love.

For an evening look, I have chosen a slightly darker shade, a burgundy like colour that somehow works with my latest heels…hahaha (Moshpit – featured image and Seismic, for a more sparkly look)

How come things match when you don’t even try?

If you ever try this brand, let me know your experience 🙂

LEAVE YOUR MARK…


Be unique and never apologise for it.

Today I will share with you another Avon collection, a more recent one that caught my eye while I was browsing for inspiration.

Avon has recently launched MARK, a new make-up assortment which I find very appealing and attractive.

As my posts are lipstick orientated, here are some beautiful and smooth shades to make a ‘mark’ on your lips 🙂

If you want to move on from a stone cold simple story, why not open a new door with Sangria Shock, a beautiful purple and pink combination that will leave your lips wanting more…

Spellbound and Red 2000

Red 2000 is not part of the MARK collection but it’s one of those colours that every woman should have in her purse.

I never counted how many red lipsticks I have but I can never have enough…

Be Loud by Avon (Mark)

You can never be too quiet to try a baby pink and as Avon calls it, it’s time to ‘Be Loud’ and mark your presence.

The lipsticks I have tried from this collection are extremely good quality but also the choice in colours covers a huge audience, which is always what I look for when I review make-up.

The texture is smooth, long-lasting and ever so loving to your lips.

If you have tried this collection, I would love to hear from you 🙂

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!

The rules of endearment


For the love of lipsticks…

I have reviewed Avon products before, so I am bit excited about this collection.

Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipstick found here Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipstick is one of the best collections I have tried so far.

The colours are absolutely gorgeous but the texture of the lipsticks is to die for… if you have not tried one out yet, what are you waiting for? 🙂

Plum Perfect- Avon

The photo session for this compilation of colours was just beautiful…and not just because the shades are irresistible to the camera but also because the weather was an absolute fit.

I love working outside, using nature as my canvas…it never disappoints.

 

 

I couldn’t choose just one tone to share with you, so here are the top 5 I fell in love with 🙂

  • Revitalising Raspberry – top centre picture
  • Loving Lilac – top left corner picture
  • Red Cream – top right corner picture
  • Sublime Wine – picture below
  • Plum Perfect – top post picture

Sublime Wine – Avon

Whatever you like light shades or bold ones, there is a choice for every taste, so why not try something new but also nourishing.

My final snapshot is my favourite, let me know what you think 🙂

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!

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 🙂
