lip liner 859 edge pink,823 earth tone,817 hot red,858 nude pink
 I finally decided to venture further afield to Long Circular mall to try out their NYX booth, admittedly there was a major price difference with the NYX round lipsticks, than my usual "lip smackers", but learning about new things always require stepping out of your comfort while there I did appreciate the variety and convenience of the booth, plus the sales person was very helpful.

      My purchases revolved around a few lip pencils and thought I would give their matte lip sticks a try, one in Shocking Pink and the other was Summer breeze, after reading a recent review... I honestly love the texture of both, but the colour for Summer breeze was just a bit to pale for my lips,and looked almost "Barbie doll" pink, but the Shocking Pink, which had a fuchsia tone was just right for me.

    Longevity... unless it states 24hrs, a  matte colour usually last me three to four hours,so if I'm busy snacking, which for me causes smearing and fading, I know I definitely need to touch up. I guess its truly dependant upon the woman, as with most matte lipsticks you need to exfoliate, apply a lip balm/vitamin E to moisturise your lip and apply lip liner for a smooth finish and oh yeah... what I liked about this lipstick was the fact that I had no staining of my lips...which gets me fussy about ingredients!!


  1. Hi Ana! I have summer breeze and I love how it applies and the colour but I have to agree with you that it is a bit too barbie pink for me!

  2. Hi Naomi, thats so true it applies beautifully!!I did read your post and the color is quite flattering to your skin tone!
