The Ultimate Christmas Red Lip

I definitely do not need another red lipstick but if Christmas isn't the perfect time to wear one, then when is? When I saw a review of the Maybelline Colour Drama Velvet Lip Pencils over on Alix's blog (I Covet Thee), I decided that I needed to try one out. 

Although my lipstick collection is not lacking in the red department I opted for a classic, dark, blue toned red in the shade Red Essential. What I love about this is the pencil applicator. It is so easy to line and fill in the lips meaning there is no need to use a separate lip pencil! 

The consistency of this product is smooth and velvety as the name suggests. It is quite matte which means it has brilliant staying power but doesn't make your lips feel dry. 

This shade is also similar to the Nars Velvet Lip Pencil in Cruella which I have been eyeing up for ages but cannot justify paying £18 for it! For only £4.99/€7.49, the Maybelline Colour Drama Velvet Lip Pencils are a bargain and definitely worth trying. I will be buying other shades from this range for sure.

Woman Crush Wednesday #3 : Kim Kardashian West

Kim K sure knows how to rock a two piece Co Ordinate! I love how all of the different textures work together and compliment each other; the knitted two piece styled with the snakeskin effect shoes & bag. I have found some affordable pieces online to recreate this look; including the lip product that she wore on her wedding day(as told by her makeup artist). This look is very clean (no jewellery) and so the snakeskin really stands out and doesn't look OTT, cheap or tacky. I think it's also nice to step away from the black, burgundy and grey every once in a while in winter too!

Lipstick - Berry Neutrals for Autumn/ Winter

I had some time to kill in Gatwick Airport at the start of October and so, a while later I found myself at MAC with an arm covered in lipstick swatches. I usually go for red tones but wanted to find some neutral berry tones that wouldn't wash my pale skin out and that would be suitable to wear during the day & out at night.

I decided to buy Captive & Brick-O-La.
Captive is a Satin lipstick and is purple, plum in colour.
However, Brick-O-La is an Amplified lipstick and more of a rusty, terracotta shade.
Both are long wearing, Captive seems to last longer throughout the day but Brick-O-La is definitely more creamy in texture.
