How I Rock My Lipliners

How I Rock My Lipliners

Hello and happy Sunday. Some time ago, I did a lipliner haul, and one person commented saying that they’d like to see how I use each individual shade, which is what I’m showing you today. If you want to get the same lipliners I have, you can click here, they’re all from the same set. I’m linking the other products I used whenever possible. Let’s get started, shall we?

Here I’m using the brown shade as a base, and adding that shiny, glossy effect with the NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors lipstick in Iced Honey. I tend to apply this as a lip topper or on the center of

my lips.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like to wear lipliner when my lippie is very pigmented, especially if it’s a red. I feel that it keeps the product from bleeding out onto the rest of my face. In this picture I’m wearing the NYX Epic Ink lip dye in Fresh.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this very classic look, in which I’m wearing a mauve-y pink lip from O Boticário called Cashmere Rose, I used a similar shade of lipliner to give the lipstick more strength and durability.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also like to wear lipliner under matte products, to give the lips a little more protection from getting too dry. This is the Kiss Proof Soft Lipstick by Menow-Pro.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t know why the lipliner and the liquid lipstick look almost orange in the picture, but they’re really a very intense shade of red. Again, like I said, lipliners are good to avoid mistakes when applying very pigmented lippies. The lipstick I’m wearing is the Liquid Velvet matte lip slick by Ciaté London in the shade Diva.

 

 

 

 

 

If I really like the shade of a lipliner, and I’m going for a more natural look, what I do is apply it to my lips with a lip brush, and then add clear lipgloss on top. It looks like I’m wearing lipstick or an opaque lipgloss. I’m wearing the Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lipgloss in Lilac Lumi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For ombré lips, I use lipliner, and then apply a slightly lighter shade of lipstick, focusing on the center of the lip. In this picture I’m wearing the Colorlicious Lipstick in Sultry Sienna from Covergirl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, on this day I was feeling extra because aside from the lipliner, I wore a lip cream and lipgloss. See, sometimes I like to create new shades, and in order to do so, I layer products. Here I used the lipliner as a base so that the undertone of the lips would remain brown, then added a coat of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London, and topped it with my Shany Cosmetics Fairytale Kiss lipstick in #9.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here we can see how a change in the base affects the look of the lip. I’m wearing the same O Boticário lipstick I showed you earlier, but with a true purple base underneath instead of a mauve-y pink, and my lips look full-on purple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is another lipliner-lip topper combination. I’m wearing the NYX Cosmic Metals lip cream in Cry

stallized Metal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here again I’m wearing the lipliner with a clear lipgloss on top.

In the comments below, tell me what your favorite look was out of the ones I just showed you.

Happy Sunday!

My Orange and Bold Lippies

My Orange and Bold Lippies

Hello and happy Sunday. By the title you already know what this post is about, so let’s get started, shall we?

Trestique Matte Color in Costa Rica Coral 

This is actually a two-in-one product, but I decided not to add the lip balm because it’s not visible in the swatches. The matte lipstick is great. It is my go-to lipstick for when I’m on holiday. It is pigmented and it stays on throughout the day. To me this is a very soft shade of orange, and I swear by it.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Morocco 

This is a gorgeous red-based orange. I often wear this shade with my more classic looks to replace the red lip that goes with them. Whenever I wear this lip cream, everyone compliments my makeup, and I love its texture and pigmentation.

NYX Butter Lipstick in Fireball

Apparently, according to the NYX site, this shade no longer exists. This super soft lipstick looks great on its own, but I also love to use it as a base for the lip cream I mentioned before. It is a soft red-based orange, that I would suggest to those people who are starting to play with bolder makeup shades.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Alien 

I got this lipstick just because I knew I needed a black lipstick in my life. I’ve worn it only for Instagram , and though I know some people wear it to go buy dog food or whatever, I just can’t. This is obviously the queen of bold lipsticks, and you can see in the swatch just how pigmented it is. Seriously, when it dries down it’s like you have paint on your lips. I can’t talk to you about durability because I haven’t worn it for more than an hour or so, but judging by other products from this line, you’ll be set for the day.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Stone Fox

This shade is still super bold, but I have worn it out. Of course, some people stop and stare because, well, gray lipstick is not very common. When you apply the first coat it looks like a very dark green, and I think because it indeed has a green undertone, but you can work to build up a more solid gray shade. Because the color is so bold and in contrast with my lip color, I did have to reapply a few times during the day.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Little Denim Dress 

This shade also has a green undertone to it. I’ve worn it, like the black lipstick, only for Instagram. It is super scandalous, and to be honest I’ve never seen anyone wearing it in real life, but it’s still cool to own an electric blue lipstick.

Which is your favorite bold lipstick shade and where would you wear it? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila

My Purple and Brown Lippies

My Purple and Brown Lippies

Hello and happy Sunday. Last week’s post was probably a bit too long, but don’t worry, today’s will not be like that. If you’re looking for lippies that are bolder than your usual pinks and nudes, but that aren’t super extreme, then keep on reading because today I’ll share my purple and brown lippies. Let get started, shall we?

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in Vivid Violet

This is what I mean by “bold but not super extreme,” at least for me it’s still a shade I could casually wear on a weekend. I have a problem, however, with this line of liquid lipsticks by Maybelline and is the super chemical scent of these products. If strong scented lippies don’t bother you, then I think you’ll enjoy this a lot.

Maybelline Color Sensational in Power Peony 

This lipstick walks the fine line between a purple and a pink, but I think it’s part of the former because it has a lilac undertone. That undertone is what makes it more wearable than those bubblegum pinks I showed you last week, and what makes the shade look more intense even if it is still light. If you have pale skin and have the same problem I have when wearing light lip products, then you can try this out and I’m sure it won’t look like you applied concealer on your lips.

Maybelline Color Sensational in Midnight Plum 

I am a lover of dark lipsticks, even if I don’t wear them as often because of my current job. This one is the classic dark plum that is vampy but still kind of serious and classy. It used to be my go-to shade for the fall, and sometimes when I need a little bit of darkness in my look, I reach for it.

 

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Subversive Socialite 

If you want your true-purple vamp, then you have to get this liquid lipstick. Honestly, it’s pure dark purple goodness. To me it’s one of those shades that looks good with jeans and Converse on a Saturday morning, and with a faux-fur coat and pleather leggings that same Saturday, only way later. I love this line of liquid lipsticks for their pigmentation and opacity, and whenever I wear one of these, I don’t have to worry about reapplying every ten minutes, only once a day if anything.

Maybelline Color Sensational in Brazen Berry

This is a more intense version of the Power Peony lipstick. It is darker, and it’s got more purple, which makes the color more intense. For some reason, in the tube it looks way more purple than it actually is, but if you decide to try it on you’ll see it’s way less intimidating than it appears. In my opinion, it’s a great shade if you want to start slow on the purples game.

Shany Cosmetics Smooch Collection in Number 03

A purple-based fuchsia is still a purple in my books, okay? It is a darker version of the lipstick I just talked to you about, which means it can also be a little bit more intense and less appropriate for some people’s everyday looks.

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Gloss in Lilac Lumi 

You can’t actually see this because it’s a clear lip gloss. I’m still adding it to this haul because it’s got purple micro-glitter, and I think it’s a great lip topper for looks with purple lips. If you wear it by itself, you’re not really going to catch any color, just the overall gloss, but it’s nice and inexpensive and a good option too if you’re going for a natural look.

Shany Cosmetics Fairytale Kiss Lip Gloss in Number 10 

This lipgloss is what got me into trying brown lippies. It is opaque enough, and I think the fact that the shade is kind of dark makes it even more intense. I’ve worn it by itself, and sometimes I’ve used it as a topper for one of my brown-based nude lippies.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Club Hopper

What are you saying? You want a super intense and opaque brown lipstick? Okay, I got you covered. Club Hopper is the ultimate brown lipstick for me. I wear it during the day and I rock it at night too. I love how it looks with just about each and every earth tone there is, but then again, it looks awesome with blue and purple. Yes, I love it, but I always take my time when applying it because it is so pigmented, it can easily ruin a whole look if for some reason it smudges before it’s completely dry.

Shany Cosmetics Smooch Collection in Number 04

But, Camila, are you sure this is the lipstick you wanted to haul? Yes, I’m sure, and I’m aware that it’s more of a brown-based red. It is, however, nowhere near a true red, and it’s also way too intense to be called a nude. So, what am I going to call it? I’ll call it a brown base. It means you are going to get that brown vibe even if you aren’t ready yet to wear a true brown.

Do you wear brown or purple lippies? What is your favorite product in either of these shades? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila

My Pink and Red Lippies

My Pink and Red Lippies

Hello and happy Sunday. Today I want to continue sharing my collection of lippies with you; this time we’re going to cover the pinks and reds. Let’s get started, shall we?

(I’m going from left to right.)

Milani Power Lip Stain in Raspberry Tart

This is one of my OG makeup products, and I have to admit I didn’t quite love it when I first bought it. Now that I know more about makeup, I think this product is very similar to an opaque lipgloss, and you know I love those because of their thick texture. It is the darkest shade of pink among the products I’m showing you here, but I think it can still be considered a very dark magenta.

Shany Cosmetics Fairytale Kiss Lipgloss in Number 11 

This is my “girl boss” lip gloss. By the picture you can tell it’s quite pigmented, but it’s still sheer, which makes perfect as a pop of color to add to an everyday look. This is one of my favorite lippies, and I think its a must to have this shade in one’s makeup stash.

Shany Cosmetics Smooch Collection Lipstick in Number 01

A couple of years ago, when my job allowed me to wear literally anything I wanted, I was very adventurous with my makeup. Back then, I loved rocking this look called the “bubblegum lips.” Have you seen the color of bubblegum? Well, this lipstick is exactly that shade. Now I honestly don’t know how I was able to pull off that look because my skin is pale, and I’m pretty sure when I applied that lipstick it must’ve looked like I had concealer on my lips. Should I give it another chance?

Shany Cosmetics Smooch Collection Lipstick in Number 05

I think this would be the closest match to my “girl boss” lip gloss. I’m sure they weren’t intended to be companions, even if they’re from the same brand, but they go very well together. What I like about this lipstick is that it’s a hot pink without being scandalous. It is actually lighter than the lipgloss, which I think makes it more wearable in situations when I need to look professional and like I’ve got it together, but I still want my pop of color.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo 

I’ll call this a dark watermelon pink. Swatching this lip cream, it occurred to me that it’s not a pretty as I’d always thought it was. I mean, looking at it now, it looks like nothing special, you know? It still looks nice, I just think it’s one of those “comfortable” shades you buy because you know they’re easy to match to any look.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague 

Then there’s Prague, and this shade is what puts an edge to the everyday look. Prague is the lip cream equivalent to my other “girl boss” products, and I love it because the hot pink shade is there, and the fact that it’s matte makes the look more serious, but it’s not super intense to the point that it might look tacky.

Sienna Cosmetics Lipstick in Pink 

I got this in a Colombian subscription box, and it annoys me when I get products like this that obviously aren’t going to work for me. Like, I specifically said I have pale skin, which means pale lipsticks don’t look good on me. Not only this lipstick is super light, it’s also got this kind of pearl effect and tiny specks of glitter. There’s no way I’ll wear it by itself, so occasionally when I’m trying on a “good girl” look, I’ll use this as a lip topper.

Shany Cosmetics Fairytale Kiss Lipgloss in Number 08

I think this is a great companion shade for the “Bubblegum lips” look. Indeed, the fact that it’s a lip gloss makes it easier to work with for me because it’s sheer, so the actual color of my lips can still be seen, and I don’t look like I have concealer lips. It’s also a great lip topper and it adds a bit of a “good girl” vibe to my looks.

Femme Couture Ultra Hydrating Lip Color in Fab Fuchsia 

This lipstick is old, so I think it’s discontinued. It doesn’t look as pigmented in the swatch, but it’s your typical scandalous fuchsia. A few years ago, this was my go-to shade for going out. Now I’ve grown, and I feel more sophisticated. No, but really, this is just too much for me.

B Color Liquid Lipstick in Hot Pink 

Okay, this is another Colombian product I got from (you guessed it) a Colombian subscription box. I plan on unboxing one in the future, I promise. This just infuriates me because, honestly, who will wear this shade in real life? This is not just hot pink, it’s hot pink on steroids. I mean, this is more than scandalous. Besides, the quality of the product is not even that great. This is supposed to be a liquid lipstick, but it doesn’t dry down, so it’s essentially an opaque lipgloss.

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in My Pink

You know I’m extra when it comes to makeup, but I always have more natural options because there are days when I don’t want to spend an hour caking my face. When I feel like I want a pop of pink in my natural look, I wear this lip balm. It’s supposed to act according to my lips’ pH or something to give me “my own” kind of pink. I don’t know about that, but I love its pale shade of pink as well as the shimmer it leaves, and the feeling of hydration on my lips.

Nivea Fruity Shine Watermelon Lip Balm

These have been around for a while, and I’d even dare to say they’re the OG tinted lip balms. It is stronger than the Maybelline one because the shade is a darker, hotter pink, but it’s still a lip balm, so its effect is pretty soft and natural compared to other products I’ve mentioned. Had I been into makeup at school, this would’ve been one of my choices.

Now, let’s finish with the reds. I honestly thought I had many more shades, but apparently I only have four. Still, let’s get started, shall we?

 

Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick in Poppy Please

This is a nice orange-based red I like to wear to work on very special occasions. Now, that fancy name is just that, a name because there’s nothing gel-like about this lipstick and it’s 100% matte. It’s got a nice, powdery texture and it doesn’t need to be reapplied all the time like some other red lipsticks.

NYX Epic Ink in Fresh

Here’s a funny story: I was planning on doing all the swatches for the posts about my lippies, but when I removed this product I discovered a rectangular stain on my arm. Yes, this ink stained my arm for a full day. This is not kiddie stuff, and if I were you, I wouldn’t try it unless I really knew what I was doing. I don’t mean to scare you, but this is ink, so it’s got a super thin texture, and it dries down really quickly, and it is dark red. This could either be a great combination of factors or a recipe for disaster, your call.

Ciaté London Liquid Velvet in Diva 

This is your true red, and I’m talking old Hollywood/ Christmas party red. Pair this with a golden smokey eye and you’re good to go. I love this shade and I love the formulation of this product. It’s smooth and easy to apply, and it does have that velvety effect, but in a good way, you know? If you’re just getting into the whole liquid lipstick/ red lipstick game, this will be your best friend.

Femme Couture Glossy Lip Creme in Spice of Life

This was my first red lipstick, and I know that next to the others I showed you, this doesn’t even look that red, which is exactly why I picked it up in the first place. You see, this is a safe shade for people getting started on makeup because it’s not flashy or overly opaque, but it’s still red. It’s a great first red lipstick.

Those were all of my pink and red lippies. Do you wear pink or red lipsticks? What is your favorite shade and why? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Sunday!

All My Shades of Nude Lippies

All My Shades of Nude Lippies

Hello and happy Sunday. We all love nudes, don’t we? Even if some of us prefer bolder shades, we have to admit that nudes are cute and comfortable, and an easy option when we don’t have the time to come up with a super complex avant-garde makeup look. I have my fair share of nude lippies and I want to share them with you in today’s post. Let’s get started, shall we?

1. Sally Girl Mini Lip Gloss in Curfew

Had I known about the wonderful world of makeup when I was at school, I’d totally rocked this lip gloss. It’s super natural, but at the same time that shade of pink is flirty and cute. Just add some mascara and you’re good to go.

2. NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Crystalized Metal

I’ve worn this as a lip topper and by itself. It adds that dash of boldness to your look because it is metallic, and you can see and feel the glitter. Yes, you can feel it on your lips. If you’re extra sensitive then this might be a problem to you, but it’s definitely not one for me. The shade is on the pink/mauve side, and I think it’s the perfect Girl Boss product.

3. Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Coral Craze

When my little sister was about fifteen, she told me she wanted to learn about makeup. I was in panic because of course, this was my baby sister and I didn’t want her to get into that world just yet. This lip gloss is a product I’d recommend to those girls who (in my opinion) are still too young for more serious makeup. It’s barely there, I mean you can’t even see it in the picture, but it’s gloss so it adds something to the lips without it being too much.

4. Shany Fairytale Kiss Lip Gloss in Shade 07

I think this is one of those controversial shades that some people won’t even consider a nude, but I do because it has this pink undertone that doesn’t allow me to place it in the “browns” pile. It’s a great shade when you’re wearing golds, browns, or pinks, so it would be an amazing everyday lip gloss for many. I like to wear it when I want my eyes to be the center of attention as opposed to my lips (or, you know, my whole face). If you want to venture into bolder, brown tones, this is your to-go lippie.

 

5. Revlon Super Lustrous Sky Line Pink

This is a gorgeous pearly/pink color, which I love, and which is why I bought the lipstick. It is very similar to my skin tone, so that’s why you can’t see it in the picture. When I wear this by itself, it looks like I’m either ill or I have concealer lips, so I only use this shade as a lip topper to accentuate the pout-like shape of my lips.

6. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London 

This looks like a dark shade of beige against my skin, which is stepping on the line between the nudes and the browns. My lips are naturally a cherry shade of pink, so I think the combination of them and this lip cream makes them look more on the nude side. I wear it by itself, or add one of the lip toppers I’ve talked about throughout this post. The shade of the topper can also make the lip color look different, so you can play around with that depending on what shade you want to sport.

7. Vasanti Power Oils Lip Gloss in Super Mom 

If I were to pick my favorite nude lip product out of the ones in this post, it would be this lip gloss. It’s got a thick texture, which I love because it makes the application quick and easy. The pigmentation is on point, and the shade of the actual gloss is opaque, so I almost feel like I’m putting on a cream lipstick. Then again, this doesn’t dry down and actually helps keep my lips looking and feeling hydrated and healthy. The shade has a mauve undertone I live for.

8. NYX Liquid Suede in Soft-Spoken 

I know this is a confusing shade, and to be honest I’m having trouble coming up with a description for the color. Against the skin of my arm, it almost looks brown, but when you see the product in the tube, you get this matte mauve. When I apply it to my lips, I swear it blends in so perfectly it’s as if I wasn’t wearing anything. I mean, it’s great because it’s like an enhanced version of my lips.

9. NYX Butter Lip Balm in Panna Cotta

If you’re into tinted lip balms, then you’ll like this one. I think it’s still the kind of product I’d have worn at school, but this one is more pigmented. It also smells great, so it sort of makes me want to always have it with me to reapply.

 

10. NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors in Iced Honey 

I usually wear this as a lip topper because it’s got a metallic vibe to it, so when I’ve tried it by itself I haven’t really liked how it looks. My favorite thing about this lipstick is the smooth, creamy texture and the fact that it lasts all day long without me needing to reapply.

11. Bang Beauty Lip Gloss in Spice

I feel like this is the toned-down version of the Vasanti lip gloss. It’s softer in shade, but not in pigmentation. It’s thick and opaque, although it has a pink undertone rather than a mauve one. I think it looks great with pink or brown eye looks.

12. Covergirl Colorlicious Rich Color Lipstick in Sultry Sienna

I bought this a while ago because Nikkie Tutorials told me to. This is probably the OG nude shade and I used to reach for it a lot before I got all the other lippies I’ve talked about in this post. It’s a super sober color, and I think it’s one of those foolproof shades that goes well with just about anything, so if you have this you’re good to go.

13. Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Flush 

This is a borderline pink shade. It has a very strong, perfume-y scent, which might bother some people. It dries down pretty quickly, but the feeling of the product remains for a while, and I think this probably happens because of the fragrance. It’s alright for a liquid lipstick, but it’s by no means the best product out there, in my opinion.

In the comments below tell me about your favorite nude lippie and the reasons why you love it.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
