.......LIPSTICKS !!!

Posted by jacqui at 11:12 PM
while i was stuck at home with the flu last week i decided i needed new lipsticks !! (not that i have anymore room in my bathroom!) so i drove my car out looking like the living dead and bought a few... in my opinion MUST HAVE lipsticks for this coming winter !!

there are two things i always look for in a lipstick
1. the lipstick HAS to have medium to high pigmentation.. to hide my darker upper lip.. i know eww right?!
2. the lipstick color has to be NUDE or close to my natural lipcolor.


Napoleon Perdis Set Lipstick in ATHENS. RRP $36.00
Maybelline Mineral Lipstick in NUDE SHELL. RRP $17.00



The NP lipstick is my FIRST Napoleon purchase ever and it didn't disappoint ! I've heard alot of raves about Hollywood stars using NP makeup but i dismissed it until i saw this lovely shade of lipstick and i just HAD to get it !! The texture is absolutely smooth and glides on easily and it is pretty moisturising yet doesn't look like my lips have been glossed over. Lovely semi matte finish !! Totally worth the $36.00 !!


NP "Athens" & Maybelline "Nude Shell"

The Maybelline Mineral Lipstick is great for everyday application !! The lipstick itself is mineral based so you won't be slathering on a bunch of chemicals on your lips and the texture is so velvety smooth almost like gloss and is very moisturising. The down side of it is the color is quite sheer and for the price i guess you get what you pay for but i still love it !!



Moisture Extreme SPF 15 RRP: $14.95

i also bought two lipsticks from Maybelline which are also extremely lovely !! I'm really digging their Moisture Extreme line !! with SPF 15 and super smooth application and a lovely hint of watermelon scent i just couldn't resist !! i bought Peach Mocha and Nude Blush !! i just love their colors !!
