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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Optical illusionย 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚



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 ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Bold Crusade

Keep looking for the rainbow…because life is art, so live yours in colour.

There are times when pictures are enough to tell the story…share the emotion…create the joy of daydream…

…and sometimes words can whisper the fairy tale…

This week I will take you on a journey of the knights…the extraordinary champions, MaxFactorX.

I am always searching for something new, special or just different…but most of the time, I am surprised to realise that I don’t really need to scavenge so much…

The fairy tale, that something special…is part of me, just waiting to come out, to come true…I just require a full bucket of creativity ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, when talking about MaxFactor…there is plenty of creativity and so much more of bold fascination for colour, taste and texture.

I don’t know about you but there is nothing I love more than the scent of sweetness on my lips…and besides my own charm, all I need is some Blush25 by MaxFactor.

As always, we look better in pairs, matching and accompanied ๐Ÿ™‚

So, this time, I have some ideas for a perfect match making!

My choice might not be your choice…and that is just fair, but may the bold and beautiful be always your first pick!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

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? ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

Smooth touch…

Do you remember the time when you have tried something bold?

When your reflection in the mirror made you smile?

Or just a moment in time that made you feel special?
