How to spot fake Colourpop liquid lipsticks

‘If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is’ I didn’t know there were fake liquid lipsticks. I mean some liquid lipsticks are dead cheap so why would you want to imitate them? Then I thought why wouldn’t there be? If there was no market for fake products, they wouldn’t be produced, would they? People are buying them. The struggle is real in the UK because we don’t get as many brands over here, especially the ones that suit women of colour, however don’t be tempted to buy fake liquid lipsticks. If you…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks on Dark skin | First Impressions and Review

Sooooo let’s just get straight into today’s review. I have heard so much about Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) and her makeup products. I swear her products receive the most hype on Instagram! When the Glow Kit or her highlighters were launched, it was like nothing else mattered in the world of makeup! I guess it is a great marketing strategy that gets us spending our money to buy the ‘amazing’ product. I have always wanted to try ABH liquid lipsticks, but I was sceptical, was it just hype with no substance? Also, they don’t sell the…

‘The best NYX Lingerie lipsticks for dark skin’  NYX makeup products launched in the UK earlier this year and were only available on online.

Drugstore Beauty Finds | Barry M Lipliners on Dark Skin

You guys know I love a bargain. I’m penny-wise and pound foolish….I think that is how the saying goes. I can spend £32 on a foundation but then when it comes to buying nail varnish remover, I go for the cheapest one which is 10p cheaper because I am trying to save! Such a contradiction. Lord knows I desperately need help! But anyways, I love Mac lip pencils, and due to my undefined lips, I love using a lip liner or lip pencil to define my cupid’s bow before applying my lipstick. To my ladies…

Drugstore Beauty Finds | NYX Lingerie and Revlon Ultra HD Matte on dark skin

AFFORDABLE DRUGSTORE LIPSTICKS We all know that liquid lipsticks can range from £10 – £40 each, even Colourpop which is super cheap in the US. By the time you factor in the cost of shipping to the UK, you will probably pay around £10 for each of them. NYX has just been recently introduced into UK drugstores. My only problem is that you do not see these products physically in the Boots stores, they are all online, which is not really helpful for testing purposes. I hope they will have them in stores soon, because…

Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes | Review and Swatches on dark skin

I wanted to try some new liquid lipsticks that didn’t have the word Colour in them…you know Coloured Raine, Colour Pop. I love Milani Cosmetics Baked Blush so I really wanted to try their matte liquid lipsticks. Milani is really popular in the U.S but it is not really heard of in the UK. I just stumbled on their products after hearing one of my favourite YouTubers talk about it. The great thing is that you can buy them online and they ship to the UK. I even think they have a UK based online…
