Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost in Peach Goddess.

If there’s anyone I have to thank for the discovery of Highlighter, it’s the beautiful Jeffree Star! When I heard about the whole contour/highlight trend I thought it was fascinating, but never really thought about trying it as the contouring, looked way too complicated and intimidating for me to try on my pale skin. The highlighting on the other hand, looked absolutely beautiful, I mean who doesn’t want to glow? However, I was unsure whether I had the skills of mastering the shine and releasing my inner glitter goddess.

However, that all changed when I started watching Jeffree’s YouTube Channel and discovered his incredible Skin Frosts! I’d always appreciated the beauty of highlighters, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a product so beautiful as these incredibly pigmented compacts. Not only that, the shades in the collection are extremely unique and bold – if you want to glow and stand out then these are the ones for you!

When I discovered that the UK Stockists, Beauty Bay had the Skin Frosts in stock I knew that I simply had to try and get one! After falling in love with lilac highlighters, I was really hoping to get Lavender Snow however, only three of the shades were in stock. Therefore, I settled with Peach Goddess, although I wasn’t quite sure how the colour would look on me – I thought it was the best option out of the limited choice left.

Peach Goddess is described as a, “crushed pearly pink” and overall I would agree that is a fairly accurate description. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the pink tint of the product as that meant I didn’t need to use blusher as well. As I was expecting, the pigment of the highlighter is absolutely incredible, with such high coverage that a little does really go a long way – but, who said less is always more?!

The packaging is signature Jeffree and features his iconic barbie pink bold statement colour with the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Logo. Not only that – I am one for details and I noticed that the label name actually matches the shade of the highlighter! Furthermore, the size of the product is incredibly large, so should definitely last a very long time. It’s without doubt the biggest highlighter I’ve ever seen so even though the price is pretty high at £25.50, you definitely get your money’s worth. The compact also features a mirror which is very useful if you’re on the go and want to check your makeup is all in one place.

The only negative I can think of – and it’s not even a bad thing as most highlighters don’t come with one – is that the compact does not come with a highlight brush – so make sure you already have one, unless you want to use your fingers!

I absolutely can’t wait to purchase another Skin Frost – I hope to soon be able to buy Regina George and I look forward to seeing all the new shades Jeffree releases in the future.

Urban Decay Cream Vice Lipstick in 69.

Urban Decay is without doubt one of the hottest Makeup Brands right now, with their Naked Eye Shadow Palettes being the most popular products to brush on your eyelids. However, I’ve not been lucky enough to own one of the iconic trio yet but, I have recently purchased my first ever product of theirs – a Vice Lipstick!

Earlier this a year, a huge Urban Decay shop opened up in my city centre and after admiring it through the windows for weeks, I knew that I simply had to make a purchase. If you’re lucky enough to have one near you, then you’ll know how beautiful the store is, it truly is a makeup lovers dream! Plus, it’s worth buying from the shop to receive a gorgeous Urban Decay purple flowered bag – so pretty!

As a lover of all things vintage and 1950s Blonde Bombshells, red is always my number one choice to wear. Therefore, I knew that the first lipstick I bought had to be my signature colour. So, after procrastinating and swatching what looked like a million different shades, I finally settled on,69” – yes, that is the genuine name.

I should point out that this isn’t the only rude name on the products, so if you’re offended or bothered by crude language, maybe this isn’t the Brand for you. Language aside, the Urban Decay products are absolutely stunning and incredibly high quality, so I’d try not to let the slightly controversial name put you off.

My Vice Lipstick is a beautiful cream finish, which when applied creates an almost three sentimental appearance and looks like a mixture of matte and gloss. The colour is a stunning ruby red and I can honestly say that this is the longest lasting lipstick I’ve ever owned! So many Brands out there state that their products last 24 hours and ultimately, that is sadly pretty unlikely. But out of all the lipsticks I’ve used, this is the only one I could believe would actually last that long.

The packaging is bold, classic and simply stunning,  with the shade of lipstick bring displayed on each box. The container is a beautiful silver and gold with Urban Decay being printed on the case and the initials on the lipstick itself! I love when you can recognize a Brand by the products packaging and this is one that is very memorable! At £15.50, this is in the mid range pricing, but in my opinion you definitely get your moneys worth and it’s worth every penny.

I can definitely say that I will be buying more Urban Decay products in the future and as their Vice Lipsticks most definitely have my approval, I cannot wait to try their Vice Liquid Lipsticks! They have such a variety of colours and like the majority of makeup lovers, I am pretty obsessed with the magical liquid to matte formula.

Do you have any Urban Decay products? If so, which are your favourites?!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan.

As I’ve said many times, pink may be one of my absolute favourite colours and has been for many years, but it’s definitely not one of my go to shades of lipstick to wear. However, this post could shock you all, as I think I may have discovered the perfect pink that I actually… love to wear! Shocking, I know.

A few of you may be thinking, “I’m sure she’s wrote about quite a few pink shades of lipstick” and I’ll agree, to an extent. Although the shades I’ve wrote about have been mostly mauve shades, which although has a pink tint, is overall a different colour. However, this lipstick is definitely the colour in question and one I happen to adore and this post shall tell you why.

I’ve previously tried NYX’S Matte Lip Cream in the shade, “Ibizia” and wrote about this wonderful lipstick and brand in this post published last year. Therefore, when I happened to be browsing through their lipsticks a few weeks ago, (I was of course testing many shades on my hand, so much so that I practically created a rainbow) I came acrossMilan“. I’m surprised I actually picked it up as for the hundredth time, we all know that pink isn’t my must wear shade, although I do like a variety so, for whatever reason I swiped the lipstick on my hand. After trying out what seemed like hundreds of lipsticks on my hand, I was continuously drawn back to Milan and thankfully, I ended up buying it.

At just £5.50, the Soft Matte Lip Cream’s are a pretty great price, although if I could change one thing I do wish the product was a slightly bigger size. However, overall it is definitely worth the money. There are so many different shades in this collection and I especially love how each lipstick is named after a City! Pretty cool huh? The lip wand is also perfect and this is actually the only lipstick I will apply without using my must have lip brush! I think the reason is because not too much product comes out onto the wand therefore making it a lot easier to use in creating the perfect pout.

The soft matte cream formula is slightly different to a liquid lipstick, it dries very quickly but as described, it applies as a cream formula – not liquid. A positive to this is it’s definitely less messy if you happen to sometimes make a bit of a mess like myself. I would say that a applying a few coats of this product is a good idea as it’s not as long lasting as some others. However, for the price it is amazing quality and pretty pigmented.

I absolutely love the smell of the NYX Lip Cream, it’s not too strong and is a beautiful vanilla like scent. Plus, once fully applied it doesn’t even really feel like you have any product on your lips, which is a super bonus as we all know how uncomfortable sticky, flaky lipsticks can be. The packaging is pretty similar but very pretty and as someone who is a huge fan of the added details, I really appreciate the NYX Logo with the little heart. I also think it’s a wonderful idea how each product is the colour of the shade you purchase.

Therefore, as you can tell – this is without doubt my favourite pink lipstick I own, I think it’s due to the unique cool tone shade that NYX have created. I can’t think of another one like it and it’s definitely not easy coming up with variations when there are so many amazing colours out there. It’s not a baby pink or hot pink, it’s truly unique!

Have you got any NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and if so, which is your favourite?

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks in Doll Parts and Masochist.

As someone who has been dreaming of owning a Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick for over the past year, I may have almost screamed with happiness when I found out that Jeffree Star Cosmetics were now being stocked online on UK website beautybay! I know you’re probably thinking, “Why don’t you just order from his website like everyone else?” and the answer is, I ordered from Kylie’s website a couple of times and the second time was charged with a customs fee – so I wasn’t risking that again!

I was fortunate enough to get two of the velour liquid lipsticks for Christmas that I asked for, (I hope you all had a lovely day by the way!) and they were, Doll Parts and Masochist. At £16 these products are in the mid to high makeup range, I was actually pleasantly surprised with the price – I thought they would be a lot more expensive! I always believe that quality is key with any makeup and if it’s going to last long and be a worthwhile product than I’m happy to pay that little extra.

Doll Parts is described on beautybay as a, “creamy hot pink” and I definitely agree with the creamy and pink part but hot? I’d say it’s a more mauve shade, which I’m very glad about as it’s different and not your everyday average pink! What I’m basically saying is I don’t think the description does it justice. However, the photo shows the shade exactly as it looks so that’s a good sign. I think this colour is great if you want to wear a, “girly” shade but not be too girly – if that makes sense? It’s perfect for the Autumn and Winter seasons as it definitely has a cold bold look and feel to it. It’s without doubt one of my favourites to wear and I’m so glad I chose this lipstick! Mauve shades are definitely becoming a new favourite of mine.

Masochist is the one I knew I wanted as soon as I saw it listed on Jeffree’s website months ago, it is described as a, “blue toned red” and once again I have to disagree with this – to an extent. Don’t get me wrong, the colour is absolutely stunning but it’s definitely not one hundred percent red. Blue toned? Yes. However, in the bottle, it looks like a bold vibrant fuchsia pink shade which on a positive, the website photo does do it justice. I always knew I wanted this colour anyway but, because of it’s description, I was also hoping to get it as an alternative for Redrum – also described as a blue toned red, which was not in stock. Ultimately, I absolutely adore this shade and I must say, when wearing it today it looked a lot more red than the first time I wore it but, I just thought it was important to mention that it definitely does have a slight hot pink undertone. This is most noticeable when comparing the red cherries on my dress with the lipstick. I do love the colour though – a unique shade of red to add to my collection!

Not only are the lipsticks incredibly long lasting and dry down from liquid to matte form in seconds, they are also vegan and cruelty free! Plus, the packaging is beyond aesthetically pleasing – it’s simply a girly girls dream and definitely the colour of Jeffree’s soul, you can tell he’s put his heart and soul into his Brand. I’m not going to lie, I’ve even kept the box packaging the products come in, they’re simply too pretty to throw away! The lipstick wand is also curved perfectly to apply on you lips and not hard and uncomfortable. Plus, you only need a small amount of product because the shades are so pigmented and opaque – which makes them extra long lasting!

I love how Jeffree is so innovative and there are simply so many amazing and unique shades in the collection, I simply cannot wait to purchase more! I haven’t been able to stop wearing these lipsticks ever since I received them on Christmas Day and I doubt that will change for some time!

The question is, which shade do you prefer?

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks in Beso and Patina.

Before I start reviewing these amazing liquid lipsticks, I have to thank my gorgeous Sophie for introducing me to Stila by buying these two products for me for my Birthday! Stila first came to my attention a few weeks previously when I saw Sophie frequently wear one of their liquid lipsticks called, “Patina” and she couldn’t say enough positive things about it – that’s when I knew it was a must have purchase!

The shades I received from Sophie was her favourite, “Patina” and my go to colour, (red – what else?), “Beso” and I was instantly in love with them. I’m especially glad that one of the shades she bought me was, “Patina” as I doubt I would have bought it for myself as I would assume it wouldn’t suit me. Surprisingly – I was so wrong! Patina is a beautiful mauve nude pink, a really unique colour that is bold and such a lovely shade to wear. I can definitely see why it’s Sophie’s favourite and I’m happy to say it’s one of mine too! Beso is a stunning bold true blue red, the ultimate vintage bombshell shade and a must have in my old soul opinion. I really don’t think you can go wrong with red lipstick, it’s just such a classic and timeless look.

There are so many liquid lipsticks out there now and sadly so many have a lot of flaws and don’t quite match the hype they are given. However, I can without a doubt say that the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are the best I have ever used! They stay on for hours and do not feeling uncomfortable or drying on your lips as the formula includes avocado oil and Vitamin E. 

Not only is the product beautiful but the packaging is absolutely stunning, featuring a gorgeous bold gold colour for the wand and the font. At £16, the lipsticks are at the mid price range but in my opinion are definitely worth the money. The product is a decent size so should last quite a while and you only need a small amount of lipstick because it’s so pigmented. Furthermore, the wand brush is flexible which makes it a lot easier to apply the lipstick and contour the shape of your lips. In my opinion, this is incredibly important for a liquid lipstick to have as a hard wand brush can make it extremely hard to apply nicely if you don’t own a lipstick brush.

It’s fascinating applying the lipstick and watching it dry from a glossy formula to a matte finish in a matter of seconds! Unlike some liquid lipsticks this dries completely, staying incredibly well and not rubbing off easily like some others sadly do. I absolutely adore these lipsticks and can’t wait to try more from their collection, I can’t thank Sophie enough for introducing me to Stila!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Sangre.

I’ve liked Kat Von D ever since I remember watching her on LA Ink and seeing her amazing tattoo creations and wonderful talent. Therefore, I may have skipped a heartbeat when I found out that her make up line was finally coming to the UK! Although currently only available in one of the stores in London, you can still buy online from the Debenhams website so everything is still pretty great.

I’ve heard such good things about her brand, especially her liquid lipsticks therefore, I was thrilled to receive my first one for my Birthday a few weeks ago. The shade I have is a beautiful bold red called Santa Sangre and is described on Kat’s website as being the colour of poison apple – loving the Snow White reference! Once again, as I’ve mentioned in many of my lipstick reviews, this colour is perfect for all the vintage lovers out there – red is a must!

As soon as I started to apply the lipstick I realized what the hype about the products was all about, it brushed on so smoothly! The shade was truly pigmented, very vibrant and dried ever so quickly. Plus, it didn’t feel uncomfortable on my lips as previous cheaper liquid lipsticks have which shows that a quality product is definitely worth the price. I’ve been wearing the product all day and I must admit, it has stayed on pretty well and doesn’t look crackly, I could get away with not reapplying it. However, it is described as lasting 24 hours and as much as I love the lipstick I definitely don’t see that happening.

At £16 I was pleasantly surprised by the price tag as I assumed it would be a lot more, it’s in the mid range money wise and I definitely think it’s worth it. The packaging is absolutely stunning and such a statement design, you’d know it was Kat Von D’s without reading the label! The lipsticks are also pretty big so you get a lot of product and won’t have to buy one every week – unless it’s another colour of course! I absolutely adore the beautiful bold pattern with the black and silver contrasting one another, you’re not just paying for the lipstick, you’re paying for the stunning design.

Not only is this product a must have but Kat also has stick lipsticks called,  “Studded Kiss” which come in a stunning iconic case – I’ve not seen anything like it before! They are priced at £16, have the iconic KVD Logo printed into the lipstick and I definitely hope to try one out and review it for you all in the future! What I also love about her Brand is she really covers a huge variety of shades, ranging from your every day pink or nude to a green or blue! It is also Vegan and Cruelty Free which is absolutely wonderful.

Makeup Revolution London Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in Keep Crying For You.

Today for the first time, I tried one of the many new lipsticks that I recently purchased; Make Up Revolution’s Lip Lacquer in Keep Crying For You. This Brand is exclusive to Superdrug and thanks to one of my closest friends who introduced me to them, I finally tried it  and I’m so happy that I did!

As soon as I saw the liquid lipsticks I knew that I had to try them, I think these products are currently the huge hype in the make up world and I have to agree, I’m very much in love with them – it’s such a cool idea! What’s even better about Makeup Revolution is it’s so affordable, I bought this lipstick for just £3! For such a bargain I definitely couldn’t miss out on trying one and I decided to go for a hot pink, something that stands out and is very feminine.

Obviously for the product being so cheap I wasn’t expecting wonders, however, I was personally surprised overall with how much I liked it. When I started to apply the lipstick I noticed it did look pretty streaky and I did feel slightly worried. However, the formula dried down very quickly and looked completely pigmented and bold. I did use my lip brush for the base coat of my lipstick, then the wand for the overall production which I found very good for shaping the colour.

I first applied the lipstick this morning and after having lunch a few hours later I did notice that a fair amount of the product had been removed from my lips. To be fair, there was still a lot of lipstick present, but as I like my  lipstick to be extremely prominent, I did reapply another coat for the photos. I would recommend if wearing this all day then you should definitely take it with you as it isn’t hugely long lasting, but that is to be expected for such a cheap price.

I adore the overall look of the lipstick, it really does dry very quickly and changes into a bold matte formula. Personally, I do think the lipstick does start to feel slightly drying but with the matte finished I’m not that surprised – a lot of liquid lipsticks can tend to create this overall feel. However, this doesn’t put me off wearing these lipsticks, although it can feel a bit strange it doesn’t really bother me and if it does bother you, then simply apply a lip closs or semi sheer lipstick over it.

The packaging is very much like the Kylie Jenner and Anastasia Beverley Hills liquid lipsticks, it looks just like a lip gloss – but we all know it’s not! The lipstick comes in a gorgeous rose gold packaging which I really love – this seems to be the colour of the moment for sure! Another good thing about this lipstick is when you touch it, the product stays on and does not come off on your fingers, it really is matte.

My conclusion is I will definitely be purchasing more lipsticks from Makeup Revolution and other products too. I think they are very good quality for such a cheap price and they have a huge variety of lipsticks available, so if you’re not into liquid lipsticks then there are four other categories to choose from. I’ve just worked out, that I could buy five of their lipsticks compared to just one mid to high range product which is very appealing!

KIKO MILANO Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in Cherry 312.

I absolutely adore make up as I’m sure you have probably guessed by now, so what could be better than receiving a beautiful new gift by a Brand you’ve never tried. One of my closest friends kindly bought me my first KIKO Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in shade 312 Cherry  – she knows me so well, and I have to say I was definitely not disappointed!

The lipstick is incredibly creamy whilst creating a matte finish and I also is very long lasting, I ate my lunch and had a nap and when I woke up the lipstick was still very prominent. I could have got away with not reapplying it but it feels so nice to wear that I actually wanted to!

The colour is of course my signature go to shade as a vintage girl at heart – red! It is the perfect Bombshell colour, a blue toned intense red that creates a statement and works perfectly with classic winged eyeliner and rosy cheeks. I feel like I’ve traveled right from the 1950s!

As soon as I opened the package I noticed the lipstick was shaped in a square tip format, similar to Charlotte Tilbury’s which I also love. I think this is such a great idea as it makes applying the lipstick so much easier and helps with the shaping and contouring the outline of the lips. It can sometimes be quite daunting applying a bold lip colour as you never know how easy it will be to put on but the square tip design is just as good as using a lip brush.

The lipstick comes in a gold and silver packaging which contrast beautifully together and make the product extra bold and eye catching. From memory I can’t think of any other lipstick designed like this which makes it stand out even more and now I want to add more to my collection! There’s also a great variety of shades available, with 19 other lipsticks in the collection ranging from beautiful nudes to shocking purples, therefore providing for everyone.

At £10.90, the lipstick is in the mid price range, not super expensive but not extremely cheap and not one you might be able to afford to buy every week. I personally think the product is definitely worth the money, it’s a beautiful quality and long lasting lipstick, Plus, the case has a magnetic closure, meaning it can’t accidentally be left open or get lost, which is always an extra bonus!

If you like to apply a lip pencil first to create a base and add definition then you’re in luck, all the lipstick colours match the KIKO Ever Lasting Colour Precision Lip Pencils! Therefore you won’t have any mismatching problems and if you can’t be bothered to wear both – you can always use one or the other and get the same look.

The only downside to KIKO – and it’s technically a compliment, is that as far as I’m aware there isn’t a store near where I live, which is such a shame as I’m sure I’d be a regular customer! However, I can order online and free shipping is offered,  so don’t worry if there isn’t a store near you, there is a silver lining.

Charlotte Tilbury The Queen Lipstick.

Today I will be reviewing my third Charlotte Tilbury lipstick and an online exclusive rightfully called – The Queen. I’ve been a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s products from the moment I saw their incredibly aesthetically pleasing brand in John Lewis, it really is a vintage girls dream. However, I’ve yet to branch out to any of the other products available as I’m absolutely obsessed with lipsticks, but from what I’ve seen all of the make up looks just as impressive and I can’t wait to try it!

I came across this lipstick purely through luck, I was browsing on my laptop and an advert popped up showing my dream lipstick, therefore my first introduction to Charlotte Tilbury’s The Queen! The luck continued to be with me as my Birthday was coming up, so I knew what I’d be asking for and as you probably guess by this post – my beautiful mum did not disappoint!

This colour is one of my signature favourite shades, a hot pink with a touch of red making it impossible to blend in and creating an iconic pout. The lipstick was actually created to pay homage to Her Majesty, Elizabeth II, (hence the name) and was inspired by The Crown Jewels, I definitely think she would approve. This product is part of Charlotte’s Matte Revolution Collection and is incredibly long lasting and bold, you are definitely buying a quality lipstick! Not only does it look and feel great on your lips but it also hydrates and protects them with tree and orchid extract.

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post featuring my first Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick, the product is shaped into a square tip which is perfect for defining your lips. The tip is actually designed to create the illusion of a lipstick brush and makes the application process a lot easier, especially if you don’t have one.

At £23, this lipstick is definitely in the higher end price range, but I really think it’s worth the money. The quality of the product is truly stunning, not only is it long lasting and moisturizing for your lips, it also looks absolutely gorgeous. My favourite part of the lipstick has the be the vintage style packaging, I adore the rose gold case and I think its so iconic and such a statement design.

Five Perfect Autumn Lipstick Shades.

Paraphrasing the wise words of George R. R. Martin – Autumn Is Coming! Actually, to be pretty frank, it’s well and truly here and apart from the orange leaves and snuggling in front of the fire, what else could be better than choosing the perfect shades of lipstick?

To suit the Season, I find the perfect shades to wear are usually purples, burgundies or anything fairly dark, so after finally being inspired by Laura – I’m going to share with you guys my Top Five shades. However, it’s all about being comfortable and happy with yourself so if the colours aren’t for you then that’s okay, it’s just my personal opinion.

My first lipstick recommendation has to be MAC’s Up The Amp – a purple shade with an amplified finish. I think this colour is perfect for Autumn weather due to it’s vibrant intense purple fitting perfectly with the cool and windy weather. I also believe this shade suits all types of skin tones and is suitable for everyone to try due to it being quite versatile.  On the website the lipstick is described as a, “Lavender Violet“. However, I feel it is more intense than the image shown, the shade is definitely very bold and stands out. At £15.50 this product comes in at the medium to high end price range but as a lot of my lipsticks are from MAC, I can definitely say they are worth the money and are very good quality.

Next up is NYX’s Cherry Skies – to me, this colour is the signature shade for Autumn due to it’s rusty burgundy tone. It is a deep matte red in liquid lipstick formula and is only £6.50, which comes in towards the cheaper price range and it is definitely worth your money. I actually think that NYX’s Liquid Lipsticks are better than some of the high end products out there, they stay on and are lasting! This shade is an absolute show stopper – a statement bold you can’t miss me red and because of this it may be intimidating to some. However, if you’re a red lipstick lover like me, it’s definitely worth branching out and giving it a try! I feel this colour is a perfect compliment to the rusty orange and red leaves of Autumn and has a very 1920s vintage vamp feel.

My third must have shade for Autumn is MAC’s Twig, described on their website as a, “Soft Muted Brownish-Pink” which I think sums the colour up perfectly. Although, I do think once again the lipstick looks slightly lighter than it actually is, it is definitely darker than pictured. The finish for Twig is Satin, which is a glossy texture so it looks quite shiny, however I feel the colour stays and if this bothers you than a lip pencil can always be used to make it last – I use Hover. This shade is not too bold but definitely isn’t a nude lipstick, so if you want a subtle look than this isn’t really for you. Personally, I prefer to go for a bolder colour in the colder season and pink coral shades for the warmer weather.

Number four is Rimmel’s Glam Plum Fulham in 470, which is an intense purple-burgundy shade with a glossy finish. After not wearing this colour for a while I decided to apply it today, so I could review it for this post and at first I was pretty shocked with how bold it was. I was almost unsure if this shade suited me at first because it stood out so much but once I’d finished applying I loved the end result. At £6.49 this lipstick is nearer the cheaper priced products but once again I found the quality to be long lasting even with the glossy texture. The product is described as a “Moisture Renew” lipstick and I can definitely say that after wearing this all day my lips have not felt dry and I’ve not needed to reapply it either.

Last but not least is probably one of the most popular lipsticks around; MAC’s Velvet Teddy. With Kylie Jenner setting the nude trend for lipsticks on fire, this soon became the top selling shade in MAC’s Collection so of course,  I had to find out what the fuss was all about. Velvet Teddy is described as a, “Deep Tone Beige” with a matte finish and I would pretty much agree with that description. The colour looks like the perfect shade for autumn and it’s not too nude, it actually has a proper brownish tint to it and doesn’t drain your face. The only problem is this lipstick is extremely popular so it may take a few trips to MAC before you actually come home with one.

I hope you enjoyed my Five Perfect Autumn Lipstick Shades and they inspire you to update your look and try something new. There are so many amazing colours out there to make your own!
