What’s In My Make up Box (WIMMB) – Part 1: Lipsticks

This is part 1 of a series mentioned in the title (WIMMB). I will post different parts based on the make up in my box.

As aforementioned, this is about my lipsticks. I have posted about lipsticks before, but this is my entire lipstick collection (not that many, I know lol).

Without further ado…

(From top to bottom)

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in “Tea and Cookies”.

I’m not really a fan of pale pink and when I initially bought it, I thought it would look a bit different than what is was, on me.

It’s still not a favourite colour of mine, but it will do for the days when I don’t feel like wearing a bold lip.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in “Jet Set”.

Royal blue is one of my favourite colours and what’s better than having a favourite colour on your lips?

Last time I checked, NYX did not stock a matching lipliner for this particular shade yet, so I have been using an eye pencil as a lipliner. 

Without a lipliner, this lip cream doesn’t last for two long or maybe I’m using it wrong lol.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in “Stone Fox”.

I love a good, dark grey lip. “Stone Fox” is perfect for that cold, grey winter’s day… any day for that matter.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in “Foul Mouth”.

This colour is like a mixture of “Jet Set” and “Stone Fox”. 

It has dark purple undertones and it does not reflect the packaging.

NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in “Electromagnetic”.

This shade is just gorgeous. It’s creamy, it’s glittery, it’s honestly a lovely shade.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in “Be My Baby”.

I came across this colour after seeing a beauty influencer promoting it. 

I really liked the colour and decided to purchase it for myself. 

No regrets. It stays on for long and is a nice, nude colour.

The only thing that I dislike about it, is the actual wand. 

You have to hold it a certain way so that the applicator doesn’t erase the colour as you apply it.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in “Firestarter”.

Faaaaaave!!!!! I love this colour.

Every woman should own a good red lipstick and this is mine lol.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in “Nude Thrill”.

I was hunting online for a dupe for Kylie Cosmetics “Candy K” (Most companies that import it here charge a lot) and this came up in a few articles that I read, so I decided to give it a try.

I love the colour and I think it’s quite a close match to “Candy K” from what I’ve seen, but there’s too many cons with this lip product: 

It smells like potpourri (and it’s not very appealing having that smell wafting into your nostrils every few seconds), it doesn’t last at all (it just fades into nothingness after about an hour) and even though it stipulates that it’s “Matte”, it still has a sheen to it that doesn’t go away even after a good few minutes.

Harsh? No.

HONEST.

Avon Mark Epic Lipstick in “Blushing Beauty”.

A pretty Barbie-ish pink. Honestly, pink lipstick is not a favourite of mine, but like with the NYX Liquid Suede, it’s nice for those not-so-bold lip days.

It’s quite pigmented and has a light glossy texture and look.

Avon Mark Epic Lipstick in “Mermaid Tale”.

Yeeees. Teal lipstick is another favourite of mine.

There’s not much to say about this product other than I love it and that I need an endless supply of it.

Essence Cosmetics Matt Matt Matt Vibrant Shock lipstick in “No To Mainstream”.

This darker green shade is just beautiful. It’s Matte (YES!) and it doesn’t dry out the lips, which is a big plus.

It’s affordable too (Check it out at your local Dis-Chem or Clicks).

Essence Cosmetics Matt Matt Matt lipstick in “Perfect Match”.

This is a gorgeous nude-ish colour with pinkish undertones.

Love it.

L.A. Girl Flat Velvet Matte Lipstick in “Poetic”.

A lighter grey lipstick that glides on easily, smoothly … almost like velvet. 😏

L.A. Girl Flat Velvet Matte Lipstick in “Blue Valentine”.

Navy blue. Yes please. 

I am a fan of blue lipstick in general, with the exception of a sky blue shade; it doesn’t suit me at all.

Inglot Matte Lipstick, number 438.

There’s no name on the tube.

I think this is the least favourite lipstick that I own. 

It’s actually more of a burgundy colour and not the red that it looks like in the photo.

This particular Matte lipstick dries out my lips and is hard to apply or rather DRY as you try to apply.

Maybe I just got a bad tube????

MAC Matte Lipstick in “Matte Royal”.

There’s a lot of mixed opinions about this shade on the Internet.

I’ve come across articles stating that it’s a purple shade and I think it’s more of a deep blue with purple undertones yes.

You have to apply this shade a few times because it looks a bit patchy after just one or two layers.

Although I like the colour, I won’t buy it again.

That’s it! All of the lipsticks lurking in my make up box.

Do you own any of these???
