Current Favourite Lip Products ♡

Hey guys!

So I’ve finally handed in my last assessment for university, and I AM OFFICIALLY FREE! Other than starting a new full time job at the end of the month, my time is now my own and I’m really hoping to post more on here from now on.

Today, I thought I’d go through some of the lip products I’m absolutely loving at the moment and show you guys! They’re mostly nude colours but I have throw in a couple of reds and pinks for Spring/Summer. I don’t usually go for bright pink lipsticks in general, but for the shades included in this post, I do make exceptions.

Lime Crime ‘True Love’ Velvetine

I know there’s been a bit of controversy surrounding Lime Crime, but I really love the formula of their liquid lipsticks way too much to care tbh. They’re so easy to work with and the staying power is incredible. They don’t dry out my lips or go all crumbly after a while, and the colour is so vibrant and gorgeous. It has a hint of a pink undertone to it, too, so it’s perfect if you’re not looking for a deep cherry kind of red.

NYX ‘Bedtime Flirt’ Lip Lingerie

I only bought this liquid lipstick sometime last week and it’s already one of my favourites. Although the NYX lip lingeries can be slightly more drying and crumbly than some other brands, the colours are all right up my alley and so affordable. They will not move once you’ve put them on, so their staying power is fabulous, and all the different shade names are so cheeky and cute!

BH Cosmetics ‘Clara’ Long Wearing Liquid Matte Lipstick

I’ve mentioned these liquid lipsticks in one of my last posts, and I’m bringing the darkest shade I have back because I honestly can’t get enough of it. The formula is so brilliant and they’re so, so affordable yet high quality. BH Cosmetics is one of my faves right now and I must say half of the reason is down to their liquid lipsticks. This shade would be perfect for colder seasons – especially Autumn – but I can guarantee I’ll be wearing this throughout the Summer, too.

MAC ‘Impassioned’ Amplified Lipstick

I bought this shade in London in 2014, and since I’m not much of a bright pink kinda gal, I haven’t gotten as much use out of it as I’d intended. However, it’s the one pink shade I have that I’ll regularly be using throughout the warmer seasons as it’s so pigmented and such a lovely shade of pink. It’s so creamy and comfortable to wear.

MAC ‘Twig’ Satin Lipstick

This is my go-to lipstick right now because I am absolutely obsessed with it. It’s kind of a mixture between brown and pink and it’s the perfect colour for any occasion. It’s so pigmented and easy to work with, and feels really comfortable on the lips. You can rarely go wrong with MAC lipsticks but this one is by far the best in my opinion.

MAC ‘Relentlessly Red’ Retro Matte Lipstick

This shade is kind of a hybrid of a bright red and bright pink, and is one of my all-time favourite shades. It is a matte lipstick, but somehow it’s still super creamy and moisturising on the lips and it stays on for so long! If you’re looking for something bold but don’t want to jump right into reds, this would be the perfect starting point.

Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick in ‘Chauffeur’

Makeup Revolution is a super affordable brand with some great products, and this lipstick is one of their bestsellers. You need to build it up a bit to get the full effect, but the texture is so creamy and glides right onto the lips so easily. It’s the perfect lipstick to throw in your bag for work, uni or school or if you’re just running errands. Also, my obsession with rose gold really drew me to this lipstick, not gonna lie.

NYX ‘Sandstorm’ Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick

I only bought this lipstick two days ago and already it’s one of my faves. The formula was slightly weird to get used to at first as it took a bit longer to dry and felt quite sticky on my lips, but the colour payoff is amazing and lasts so long. It’s such a lovely nude brown shade, and right now I can’t get enough of those.

So that’s it for my current favourite lipsticks at the moment and this blog post. I hope you enjoyed reading and keep an eye out for the next one!


Shaaanxo BH Cosmetics Palette

I know I’m slightly late to the party, but my Shaaanxo BH Cosmetics Eyeshadow and Lipstick Palette arrived today, and it’s so wonderful I just had to share it!


The palette has 9 eyeshadows and 9 lip colours, which is amazing value for the price! Having owned a BH Cosmetics lip palette before, I had high expectations for the quality of both the lip colours and eyeshadows, and after watching Shaaanxo on YouTube for over two years, I knew she wouldn’t let us down.


As you can see, the palette contains a range of eyeshadow colours that can be used for a natural daytime look or a glamorous nighttime look. It also includes a duochrome eyeshadow (middle bottom row) which is absolutely stunning – especially on a dark base – which you can see in her make up tutorial here:

I also swatched the eyeshadows on my arm so you could see the pigmentation and payoff of the colours, and as you can see the pigmentation is amazing after one swipe. (NOTE: Please excuse how dodgy the shape of my arm looks in this picture.)


As for the lip colours, they consist of a few differing shades of reds and pinks, with couple of nude colours thrown in, too, which I believe I’ll get the most use out of! They have a creamy consistency and although it does take a while to build up the colour on your lips, they do also act as a lip stain. The colour I would probably use the most (bottom left) is actually similar to my favourite colour from the BH Cosmetics Ultimate Lips Palette which is close to running out, so this couldn’t have come at a better time!


I’m so excited to try this palette out with lots of different make up looks, and the range of colours makes it the perfect travel palette to take with me to Melbourne for a long weekend trip next week!

I would highly recommend purchasing this palette – even just for the duochrome eyeshadow shade – and hope for more Shaanxo and BH Cosmetics collaborations in the future.
