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!

 

Your Sweet Lips Girl,

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 🙂

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.

 

SONY DSC
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.

‘Discover your glow’


2015-06-08 09.28.19-1

Hello my fashion lovers:)

I have a question for you…how would your world look without colour?

It wouldn’t be the same, would it?

As much as we love black and white pictures, outfits and art…colour gives us a completely different perspective!

2015-06-08 09.27.43-1

Today’s fashion post it’s about colour and glow…that ‘When Harry met Sally’ moment, when it’s not just the colour of your wardrobe that counts!

What about your make-up?

It’s always about the right shade…of your lipstick, eyeliner and even hair colour:)

When talking about make-up there is no silly question that you could ask but sometimes we can make wrong choices…of colour, how to mix and match and even what product to use!

It’s all about research…a bit of experimenting and taking the right advice.

2015-06-08 09.36.15-1         2015-06-08 09.40.38-1

Basic tips:

  • It’s one or the other – bring out your eyes or your lips
  • Avoid the clown effect – colours which are too strong do not suit everyone
  • Your first priority is your skin – use the right products for you ( not what everyone else is using)
  • Match it top to toe – know your colour chart
  • Less is always more – that is a reality, not just a saying:)
  • Try it before you buy it
  • Know the difference between night and day – believe me, they are not the same:)))

2015-06-08 09.49.07-1  2015-06-08 09.41.46-1

Sharing good practice:

  • The best eyeliner I have ever had…Bourjois Eyeliner Stylo
  • A new discovery…Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara🙂
  • Your eye colour and your eyeshadow are best friends!
  •  Moisturise…a healthy skin is always the best look
  • Be colour coordinated – your wardrobe should match your make up
  • A natural look doesn’t mean no make-up

The eyeliner, the mascara, the lipstick, the nail polish…use them to enhance your best features!

Always look like you were born with it….because you were:)

Love who you are,

Julia
