SPOTLIGHT: 1st Quarter 2017 Fave LOTD's - Part 2...

Following on from Part 1, here are the oranges, reds, berries and purples. Seeing them all together like this it really hits home how many different colours I wear lol! Not everyone's cup of tea of course, but I do love experimenting ...

This first one is such a fab shade for summer - NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Banana Split - my mouth waters just reading the name! Next we have two more NYX beauties - Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Foiled Again & Orange County. This formula is quite comfortable, nowhere near as supple and slick as the butter glosses, but (of course) far longer wearing ...


First red is Australis Velourlips NY-CEE - fabulously vibrant fire engine red, but oh so drying on the pout. So in the second pic I slicked on the Cosmoholic gloss again and turned it into a power house of radiance and juicy hydration. This last red is a glamour puss from the NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette, pan #5 ...


Onto the deeper reds, which I absolutely adore  Another from the NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette, this is pan #6. And just to show you there's no need to break the bank, this second one is by MUD - it's called Cocoa Berry, costs around $5 from Woolies, and it's fabulous. Last one is Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Colour in Adobe, one of the most lusciously lip smacking lipstick formulas out there ...


Oh wow, this was probably my greatest discovery of the first quarter - Lush Liquid Lipstick in the shade Power Without Force. Amazing pigmentation with a touch of gold shimmer, it lasts FOREVER and doesn't dry out my pucker. Then we have Australis Matte Lip Cream in Amster-Dance. It's such a shame these creams are so drying as the colours are a blast. And this last one came via Lip Monthly - Be A Bombshell Lush, and it sure is ...


So now we're well and truly into berry territory - another couple of MUD lipsticks, this time in Pretty Please (pretty gorgeous I'd say) and Mulberry...sigh. The deep deep one on the right is a crayon by Lord & Berry (another Lip Monthly score) - this shade is called Black Red, whoa ...



And what list of favourites would be complete without some purples hey? NYX Liquid Suede in Run The World, I have nothing else even vaguely like it in my collection. #2 is Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick in Run the Show (be still my beating heart), and the third and final "out there" one is another NYX Liquid Suede, called Amethyst, and yes it really is as vivid and as purple as it looks in the photo lol ...

So that's it for the first three months of 2017 - probably more NYX than any other brand, but then again I did treat myself to one of their vault collections for Christmas. I'm already working on the 2nd quarter lip beauties, up soon I promise ...

Take care of you,
