I confess: I’m a lipjunkie! Can’t get enough of lipliners, lipstick, gloss or liquid lipsticks. Alright, if you’re a beauty enthusiast like me,then you know the feeling of trying out a new brand. So exciting! Today I’m trying a matte lipstick by Colourpop Cosmetics. Let me show you my new Colourpop Lippie Stix in the shade ‘Oh Snap.’
The liquid matte trend is here to stay! I’ve seen a lot of amazing liquid mattes on the internet, but a lot of those aren’t sold here in the Netherlands, and that makes it a little too expensive for me.( I’m still hoping those Anastasia liquid lipsticks will eventually come to the make up stores here in the Netherlands.)
Today I’m reviewing the budget friendly version, the”Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss” by L.A. Girl Cosmetics. I love a matte lip and was dying to try these out. It’s a matte gloss that comes in sixteen colors. L.A Girl Cosmetics describes it as an ”Intense color in a flat finish for all day wear. The long wearing formula goes on as a high pigmented liquid and dries to a flat matte finish leaving lips colored in gorgeous velvety perfection that last and lasts.”
Sounds great right! Curious to see which colors I picked ?
I’ve been a big fan of Kiko Cosmetics ever since I’ve been to one of their shops last year in Italy. Their products are beautiful, good quality and very affordable, which is a really good combo, right? I heard that a Kiko shop opened at the Amsterdam Central Station, so when I went to Amsterdam last week to visit my friends’ exhibition and the AMFI fashionshow, I knew I had to pay it visit and SHOP! Unfortunately the trains were a nightmare, so I arrived an hour later than planned, and only had about five minutes before had to leave again. So it ended up being a really short but sweet shop session. Hopefully next time I’ll have some more time and really try some more stuff out. I picked up these two lipsticks, the Deco Delight lipstick in Frison Rose and the Velvet Mat – Satin lipstick in Natural Rose.
Are they a match made in Kiko heaven? Check out my review and swatches!
I have to admit, I’m a bit of a make up addict. I can honestly say I already own quite a few shades of pink lipsticks, but oops..I did it again. These two are quite budget friendly for a change!
I went for a Sleek True Colour Lipstick in ”Mystic ”, A matte, blue based matte pink/purple-ish colour and a Barry M in ”Pretty Pink”, which is a light pink colour.

Are you a MAC girl? I am!
Sadly I’ve totally missed out on the Rihanna x MAC Holiday collection..(I was sick at the time, flue had me totally knocked out) I do already own the amazing mat red lipstick ‘Riri Woo’, and it’s been my favorite red lipstick ever since then. Today MAC and Rihanna announced their next collaboration on Instagram: the Viva Glam lipstick and lipglass. Colour? Red, yay! All the proceeds go the MAC Aids fund, to support those affected by AIDS/HIV.
