Kiss Proof

 

Kiss Proof Summer

Spontaneous Summer with Kiss Proof💄

My love for lippies has no season. I get pretty much whatever shade I like.. No rules! These KISS PROOF matte lipsticks are really stunning. Thanks to @southchique for the fast delivery!💄shades (from top to bottom): 12,13,8,19,15So here’s my review…

Let’s try to manage expectations. Some would expect Kiss Proof to be really kiss proof or waterproof. Let me tell you darling, there’s no such thing. If there’s something you put on your mouth that won’t ever come off, that would be tattoo. And to cosmetic tattoo, I’d say, “no thanks!”

You can expect that:

  • It will stay on for a long time; longer than any lipstick will. Unlike other lippies which are like crayons to your lips, Kiss Proof lippies are like craypas in texture. It glides smoothly on lips during application and sort of builds and hardens as it dries.
  • Its colour is full and vivid. One layer is all it takes to achieve full coverage.
  • It doesn’t bleed on the edges.
  • I wore this for a day without any need for a retouch.
  • If you really want to know, it’s smack-proof! 🙂 Smooch-proof? nah! So if you’re eating chips or truffles, you’re safe! I had a meal and it still looks perfectly fine!

If you’re having soup or a creamy meal, please don’t expect too much. You wouldn’t want anything too hard to remove at the end of the day anyway.

Shades (from top to bottom):

12 – This looks berry plum to me. I really love this shade and I think this is perfect in Autumn too!

13 – Red is always a must-have!

8 – This is pale nude. This will be of good use in creating ombre lips.

19 – If you like coral, this one’s for you. I like wearing coral because it looks so fresh.

15 – the perfect nude

My verdict:

LaineyLoves Kiss Proof

I wish I had these on the day I gave birth to Pierce so I’d look picture perfect! 😁

I bought my KissProof lippies + sharpener from @Southchique. They have lots of trendy sunnies too! Thanks for the fast delivery! 😘

Love,

Blue, Bold, and Sultry

laineyloveslife-makeup-bold

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing great. I just want to share with you the things that I keep in my makeup tote ALWAYS. When I say always, I mean I don’t even remove them from my purse anymore when I do a makeup rotation. Here’s why:

ELES luminous CC Cream 20

My skin is super sensitive as it turns red when it’s too hot or too cold outside. When I directly put my makeup on (lazy girls, raise your hands!), I get red patches on my face. The ELES Luminous CC Cream 20 keeps my skin’s colour even. It also makes my complexion look healthier. It’s lightweight and I don’t feel like I’m wearing too many layers as this already acts as my colour corrector, moisturiser, and sunscreen. ELES is an awesome Australian brand you must check out! If you want to see other ELES makeup that I own, click here.

Just a quick review:

BB = blemish balm
CC = colour correcting
DD = daily defense (anti-aging)

I hope I can find and try a DD Cream soon! 😍 (crossing fingers)

The body shop – Metallic eye Definer

When I’m feeling under the weather, or looking tired, I set aside the black and look for my Metallic Eye Definer in Brilliant Blue from The Body Shop. It’s a fail-proof eye brightener, making me look fresh even when I lack sleep. I also have this in Vibrant Emerald which is close to green. These colours are so fresh yet intense with great colour pay off. When I use these, I don’t apply eye shadow anymore.

AVON Ultra Color Matte Lipstick in Matte Merlot

I said it before and I’ll say it again. I love Avon’s Matte Merlot and I renamed it Superwoman! I believe every woman should keep a red lipstick in her tote always, first to make her feel strong and on top of the game, and second when she needs to feel extra sexy. Check out my AVON lipstick collection.

Laura Mercier’s Lip Glacé in Bare Pink

On days when I want to keep my look fresh and natural, I just put on Laura Mercier’s Lip Glacé in Bare Pink. It’s like adding a bit of shimmer to your already beautiful lips. P.S. Tell Laura I love her! 😘

NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm

My all time favourite, one that doesn’t leave my bag… NARS blush in Orgasm. I can’t remember a single day that I didn’t like the colour of NARS on my skin. It’s buildable so during the day I start with a very light application and then I apply more in the evening.

Do you have tote bag favourites too? Do you have makeup items that you can’t leave home without?

Bright Pink to brighten up my day

LaineyLovesLife-Lipstick-Pinkies

I’ve been in and out of the hospital for tests and quite frankly, I’m exhausted! I’m not complaining though. My baby is growing too fast and I can’t wait to meet this little bub. I miss reading my friend’s blogs. I’ll be checking your pages and will catch up on everything that I missed.

In the meantime, I logged in today to share with you this lipstick I got a week ago at a mall sale. The brand Pinkies Collection is new to me but it was the first shade that caught my attention, probably because it’s quite close to neon. It stood out amidst the gazillion lippie shades on the rack.

The picture does not justify how bright it is and although it’s vivid, it doesn’t make me look like a wild Barbie (which is great). I’m using a lip primer so it stayed smooth all day long. I’m quite surprised that it doesn’t smudge easily too, considering how cheap I got this for.

In dollars, it’s equivalent to $3.75. That’s a steal!

Do you like pink lipstick too?

Sealed with a Kiss, AVON.

I have 9 shades of Red and it’s not even Heart’s Day yet!

These lippies from Avon are so vivid and highly pigmented. I was so excited, I swatched them all in a day to see how they’d differ from one another.

To men, these are all RED. 😁 Men just don’t get why we have so many lippies! Well, I don’t know either… These are happy sticks! I’ll always get one whenever I feel like. 🙂

Avon’s luminous Ultra Color Lipstick SPF 15 will make your lips look and feel so exquisitely soft and supple! I love that even the matte colors are moisturizing.

Avon’s secret formula: shea butter + arctic berry + vitamin E

Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Lava Love, Red 2000, Knock Out Pink | They’re highly pigmented. If you’re looking for Red lippies that look creamy and moisturizing, these are for you.

Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipstick in Matte Ruby, Matte Red, Matte Merlot | In my opinion, they don’t really look matte. They’re just too opaque with less gloss than the Ultra Color collection.

My favorite is Matte Merlot. I can’t give it away, that’s for sure. It’s going straight to my daily makeup tote and I’m naming this SUPERWOMAN. I’ll be using this as my weapon of choice on days when I know I have to wear a cape (you know, to save the world). 😍

Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Fuschia Flirt, Smitten Red, Make Out Red | The Totally Kissable collection has an ultra fine shimmer that adds oomph to the already amazing colors.

When I first tried the Totally Kissable lippies, they looked like thin gloss over my natural lip color. I immediately said I’m giving them away, but then after a minute or two, I looked at the mirror again and they instantly turned into gorgeous shades of red and pink!

I don’t think I’ve captured the true colors of the lippies. I shot them at the veranda and they all look extra bright in these photos! I didn’t even use filters.

After a busy day, this is me wearing Fuschia Flirt.

Laineyloveslife - Avon - Fuschia Flirt
Yes, I used lo-fi filter so the color looks hot pink here! 😁

My mom blackmailed me (in a nice way) and just took 3 lippies without even asking me if it’s okay. lol Avon, you unknowingly flared up my mom’s addiction to lipstick! GOOD JOB! Before she went out to meet a friend, she stood in front of me for a few minutes just to show me she’s using one of her new lippies.

Luscious lips 

 

 “To instantly make a connection, charm him with your eyes.

To make a lasting connection, charm him with your lips.”

And although the latter could mean conversing well and saying the most interesting of things, we’d like to add that on romantic evenings, your words are muted and all a guy sees are your luscious and kissable lips.

Here’s how you could make your lips smooth and pretty, always…

  • Lip Scrub. The winter season could dry up your lips’ moisture so the first thing you should do is to get rid of the dry skin. Wet your lips with a gentle oil that’s good as a makeup remover, massage for a minute and when you see the skin soften, gently scrub with a soft makeup sponge in one direction. Do you know what I love using as a lip scrub? Refined sugar with honey 🙂
  • Uneven lip colour? Not a problem! Look for a serum that has redefining qualities, one that has the power to brighten lips and define lip contour. I found this wonderful elixir with retinol called Youthful Lip Concentrate by Pevonia. Try it!
  • Plump it up. Get rid of the wrinkles surrounding your lips and iron those fine lines out with with a lip cream and emerge with young, naturally plump lips. No to surgical lip plump!
  • Use quality lipstick. Invest in good quality lipstick in a bold shade you love and have more time to socialise, rather than retouching your pout so often you’re missing a huge chunk of party fun. 
  • Pick lip products with long-wearing formula. There are lots of lippie brands that claim to have long-lasting colour. If you know a lip superstar that stays on even after eating dinner, please comment below! 
  • Prime. Using a lip primer helps achieve a bold, even lip colour. Not only does it hydrate and protect your lips, a lip primer also helps keep your lipstick smooth and even for a longer time. What lip primer do you use?
