Beauty Craving: Lipsticks

Since I bought my first red lipstick, I have enjoyed the process of using makeup (lipstick, specifically) to complement my outfit. I never realized how much a specific lip color can add that "little something" to your look. Eventually, I ventured into trying out different shades (outside of red and pink) and I see my lipstick collection growing by the day. And yet, I can't stop! Here are some other lipstick shades that I am particularly eyeing to add to my lipstick stash for future use. 

MAC Craving

I've been looking for beautiful plum shades and this is one in particular that I've set my eyes on. It is plum but with hints of pink. It is an amplified creme finish so it also got a subtle shine to it.

Maybelline Bit of Berry

In my search for plum lip shades, I also came across Bit of Berry from Maybelline. It is close to MAC Craving, no wonder why these two are often compared next to each other. However, this shade from Maybelline is more pink than Craving is. It is part of the Color Sensational line from Maybelline.

MAC Candy Apple

Okay, another plumful shade. This one though comes with a midtonal warm plum, perfect for the cold weather ahead. It is part of MAC's So Supreme lipstick collection. Therefore, the lipstick formula is moisturising and with a sheen designed to give a flash of glow to your lips.

MAC Relentlessly Red

This is part of the Retro Matte lipstick collection from MAC, as inspired by its most famous red shade - Ruby Woo. As a big fan of matte lipstick, I cannot wait to sample this particular shade. It comes with a cool undertone to give more eye-catching effect to the lip color.

Revlon Lover's Coral

MAC Sunny Seoul

The creamy and warm pink color from Sunny Seoul tug at my heart, making this lip shade a part of my must-have lipsticks. This color might work best on light skin tones, though, because the shade is very ethereal that it verges on the line of pastel. It is also a perfect lip color to wear for day look.

L'Oreal Plum Passion

Dubbed as the "party shade", this dark plum lip color is a dream. I can envision myself wearing this with a party dress this upcoming holiday. 

Have you tried any of these lipstick shades? I'd love to hear your review - be sure to leave your links in the comment section so I can check them out. xo



  1. I have not tried any of these lipsticks, I don't really wear bold lip colors as I prefer to make my eyes pop with eye makeup rather than my lips. But I can say that MAC Lipsticks are some of the best I've tried, as I have a couple from there! Nice picks! Mckenzie
