Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick Chihuahua and Melted Berry

Comes in a squeeze tube with a flocked applicator. Just squeeze and product comes out, it is very easy to use.

Left to right: Chihuahua and Melted Berry

I am not in love with Chihuahua. It looks flat and literally draws all colour from my face. I look washed out.

Melted Berry on the other hand was vavavoom. I really like it. Although arm swatches of these looked glossy, when applied on lips they were more matte. As such I would rather pick the brighter shades.

They felt a little drying on me so I wouldn't want to wear this the entire day. Melted Berry left a stain after I tried removing it.

SGD $30. I am n the fence with this particular product. I love how impactful the bright colours are but they don't feel very comfy on my lips. My Princess Precious seems to like them though.

Nudestix Lip and Cheek Pencil Sin

Pretty rose colour shade that looks good on both on my cheeks and lips. Blends well and is long lasting as a blush. I can work this under or over face powder without looking patchy. As a lip colour, it feels neither hydrating or drying. It feels quite comfortable on the lips.

I do feel that it is unhygienic using it on my lips then applying it onto my face. To work around that, I use a tissue to gently wipe the tip then use my fingertip to pick up the pigment then dabbing it onto my cheeks.

Metal tin packaging comes with a mirror inside and  sharpener. Very easy to carry this around. I like this and might get either Ripe or Soul next.

SGD $34. You can buy this at Luxola or Sephora counters.

Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color Twilight, Angel and Immortal

I am in love with these! Creamy, crease proof and smudgeproof, they are very easy to use. I use my fingers to blend. They do dry down fast, so work quickly with your fingers. They are also very easy to carry around. 

Angel on my lids
Immortal blended from outer corner

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms: Bitch Perfect, Penelope Pink and So Marilyn

These are so cute especially when I received it as a present, thanks Pammie. But at USD $39, it isn't worth it at all. Cuteness does not makeup for the lack of product because these things are tiny. They should have added two more colours to make this kit more worthwhile.

I was apprehensive using Bitch Perfect and Penelope Pink because they look too nude for me. But with a layer of Make Up For Ever lip liner in 14C under, Bitch Perfect became a very nice wearable shade. Very feminine.

Bitch Perfect

So Marilyn

The lipsticks are creamy and opaque. They don't feel moisturising, neither are they drying. Not sure why but wearing So Marilyn made my lips peel, could be a one off thing. Do they make me curious enough to want to get Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks? Nope.

USD $39
