Let's Talk : Lipsticks



Haven't done a beauty post in a while so I thought I'd do a quick post about my favourite lipsticks. I tend to lean towards lipsticks that have a slight brown undertone to it, 
like brown-y pinks and mauves. So all of my favourite lipsticks kind of fall in the same shade range hahaha. 



From left to right : 

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Crème 510 Berry Rich 

MAC Satin Lipstick in Twig 

Silkygirl Moisture Rich Lipstick in 01 Naked 

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in 913C Sand Storm

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in 912C In The Flesh

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in 915B in Spiked With Rum 

Kiss Beauty CC Moisture Lipstick in #9 





Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Crème 510 Berry Rich 

This is probably the pink-iest shade I have. It's really creamy and it has pretty good lasting power on my lips. I'm going to get 'Rose Velvet' next from the same range. 


MAC Satin Lipstick in Twig 

I wear this one out a lottttttt. I've only ever owned two lipsticks from MAC, the other one is Cosmo but I have no idea where that one went. I can't compare on the different finishes because I haven't tried the rest, but so far the satin finish feels really nice on the lips. Doesn't dry my lips, but it does get on my teeth a bit if I don't smack my lips on a tissue paper after application. I wanna get my hands on MAC's Taupe, Retro and Kinda Sexy but I can never get myself to splurge on lipsticks haha. 
I think I'd rather use my money on food than spend 74 bucks on a lipstick for now. 


Silkygirl Moisture Rich Lipstick in 01 Naked 

This was my everyday lipstick for MONTHS. Lasting power is crap, and I have to reapply so many times throughout the day. But it's non-drying, less than 20 bucks, 
and gives off a really nice colour on my lips. No complaintssss. 


Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in 913C Sand Storm

One thing I love about WNW lipsticks is that they are super pigmented. Like one swipe is enough, I swear ! Sand Storm is like a dark nude, and the shade is super flattering on my skin tone. The only con of WNW lipsticks are that they're quite drying tho. A layer of lip balm is a must for me. 


Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in 912C In The Flesh

Pinky-nude shade. Really pretty for daytime. But yeah, same as above : ^ drying. By the way, I got my Wet n Wild lipsticks from a seller on Carousell. They sell these in SaSa too but shades are very, very limited so I recommend you looking for them online if you're in the market for these lipsticks ! 
Also, they cost less than 25 bucks and have several dupes for MAC lipsticks. Score. 


Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in 915B in Spiked With Rum 

I thought I was allergic to this one a few weeks ago and I was soo sad because this shade beautifulll. 
But I tried wearing it again and my lips didn't feel weird so I'm not sure if it was something I ate that day or.. 


Kiss Beauty CC Moisture Lipstick in #9 

This is a new favourite. On my university campus, it's like a bazaar every other day at the U Plaza (basically a fancy name for our ground floor along the academic block), so you can expect a ton of booths selling tudungs and clothes and accessories, and of course beauty products. My friends and I saw these lipsticks at one of the booths and they were only 6 ringgit each (dirt cheap, I tell you) so we went on a swatching frenzy and concluded that #9 was the nicest shade. It's so nice that the 3 of us ended up buying the same one. The shade is kind of similar to WNW's Spiked With Rum but lighter in texture and it doesn't have that slight shimmer. The lipstick doesn't dry out my lips, has surprisingly good staying power, and did I mention it's only 6 bucks ??? The packaging sucks balls and the scent is too strong for my liking, but other than that. For a 6 ringgit lipstick, it's worth it haha. 



I really want to try liquid lipsticks, (in my dreams it's the Kylie Lip Kits) but I heard the Nyx Lip Lingerie is amaziiiing too, and I really want to get my hands on the shades : 
Bedtime Flirt, Ruffle Trim and Exotic. Go google for swatches if you want to see them ! 

What are your current favourite lipsticks, and do you love any of mine ? I'd love to know ! x

  2. Hi izza, i know i can always count on you for advice. I've been with my boyfriend for a year half now and recently we went into ldr. It went well but he just told me he couldn't do it. He still loves me but he's too busy with work and all he finds it a burden to talk to me and show affection and layan me. I still love him and I don't know what to do :(

    1. Hiii. Ldr is hard, it's a fact. In some cases, absence (and distance !) makes the heart grow fonder. But in some, unfortunately it just won't work and it's not for everyone. I'm so sorry that he couldn't do it. If he still really loves you, he would do anything to try and make ldr work for the both of you. And he shouldn't find talking to you or showing you affection a burden !! The highlight of his day should be talking to you. Try talking to him and see if you two could meet in the middle and find another solution than just giving up because one you couldn't do it. If he still doesn't change his mind, then it's not worth it. You don't need anybody who doesn't need you. And you definitely don't need somebody who thinks talking to you is a burden. No matter the amount of work or distance. I hope you guys work it out where both of you could be happy. x

  3. WnW Mocha-licious! My absolute fave! Maybelline's Color Sensational in 275 Crazy for Coffee is kind of amazing too!

    1. Yeah ! Especially since you get the liner and the lip cream thing together right ?? I wanna wait till I'm less broke then I might just get them hehe. Thanks for sharing with us the Carousell account ! And no omg, I have the same problem too that's why I almost never wear eyeliner (I suck at applying them too so that's another reason haha).

    1. Hi Nadia ! I got mine for RM20 - 25ish. Definitely not more than that. Hmm I think both have the possibility of being authentic because WNW is quite cheap, but you should ask them straightforward if it's "inspired" ke apa :)
