COLOUR POP ULTRA MATTE LIPSTICKS-TRAP, TULLE, BUMBLE AND SOLOW.

I was dancing last night when I got my stuffs I ordered from The_df_store,lol. And I was most excited about this Colour pop Ultra Matte Lipsticks..

imageimageimage

This lipsticks launched 25th of June and was immediately sold out,but they are permanent and will restock.Not sure when..

image

I got TULLE,TRAP,BUMBLE and SOLOW.. They are gorgeous,matte,lightweight and pigmented. It dries up fast,but you definitely have enough time to fully apply it on your lips.After swatching on my hand, I tried to take it off with tissue paper, it didn’t come off till I used olive oil to moisturize..

TRAP
TRAP

Trap – A greyish mauve with hint of pink..

  • image
    SOLOW
  • Solow – Pink.
image
BUMBLE
  • Bumble – Brown with warm undertone..
image
TULLE
  • Tulle – More like a warm plum red..

Wasn’t really into this Lipsticks at first because I felt I had too many liquid lipsticks and that is why I got just four shades in the first place, but right now I can’t wait for them to restock.. The texture is how I love my liquid lipsticks to be like and the price is super… NOTE – The swatches are without filter..

Let me know what you guys think..

REVIEW-MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE+PORELESS FOUNDATION.

Hello Beauties!!! I trust you all are enjoying the holiday..I want to talk about Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation..Am late with this foundation cause I got the wrong shade sometimes ago and it kind of turned me off..But few people have asked me about it recently and I decided to give it another try..Am the shade 355 coconut,which is my perfect match..imageimageimage

CLAIMS

According to Maybelline, “Fit Me!® Matte + Poreless  Foundation is for normal to oily skin.Mattifies and refines pores,matches natural tone and natural seamless finish.”

  • Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation,if you can find you shade,looks just like skin..They did a fantastic job with the colour selection I must say.It looks like you have nothing on.Just make sure you have the right shade.
  • Its more like semi matte or satin kind of matte than matte to me and has a natural finish.
  • It blends perfectly..It sets almost immediately but gives enough time to blend really well..
  • I have combination skin.This foundation stayed matte on me for up to 5hours,without blotting..
  • I recommend you use a beauty blender to apply this foundation..I started applying with foundation brush and I wasn’t satisfied with the coverage at all,I could still see my dark spots like I had nothing on..but with the real techniques sponge,I was impressed..It gave me more coverage,was so easy to build in areas I wanted more coverage and still looked natural..
  • Its medium coverage,buildable without looking cakey..

CONS

  • My face looked really beautiful the hours this foundation held up for..but after the 5hours,I became really oily and I couldn’t understand where the oil was coming from.The foundation shifted to the side of my face and you could see my under eye concealer standing on its own.My face was just a mess..I had to blot and blend my face again then set with powder.I will probably only wear this foundation when I know I just want to spend like 4-5 hours out.

Aside this,Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation is not bad considering the price and how well it matches my skin tone..I think I will repurchase,because I always have issues with foundation shades, and this one matches really well..

BASIC TOOLS FOR STROBING

What is STROBING? Its simply called Highlighting..The idea of Strobing is to give your skin a luminous,dewy and radiant glow from within.People including myself have been doing this for ages but no name was given to it until now.Its nothing new I must say.I do this everyday except weekends when I have the time to contour and special occasions.So here are the basic products you need for strobing.NOTE-You don’t necessarily need the exact brands you see here.Which ever one you have is ok.Let me know if you need recommendations concerning any products.

image

  • Liquid illuminator – First thing you need is a liquid or creamy illuminator.You can mix it either with your moisturizer,foundation or use on the high point of you cheek bone,along the temples,down the bridge of your nose.The idea of using this is to give you that glow from within which is what Strobing is all about..Also you don’t need much,just a drop or two is enough.I prefer to mix it with my foundation or moisturizer,to give me that all over glow..

image

  • Foundation – If you are mixing you illuminator with you moisturizer,the next step is to apply your foundation.But if your mixing with your foundation,after moisturizing your face and using a primer,apply the mixed foundation and illuminator on your face.I prefer a matte or semi matte foundation because I have combination skin,to help control the oil on my face..

  • Highlighter – GHEN GHEN.loll.The love I have for highlighters tho.If you are using a liquid illuminator,I would advice you use a subtle highlighter.Go for a brightening powder or a highlighter with less shimmer will do,so you don’t  look like a disco ball..Apply the highlighter on your cheek bone,below you brow bone,the bridge of your nose and your cupid bow.You can go ahead and complete the rest of your face(eyeshadow,brow etc)..

And that is it Guys.Most of you already have all the product needed for strobing in your stash.I prefer “strobing” because unlike contouring you don’t need much products to achieve a luminous clean look,it’s not as time-consuming as contouring and you don’t need to watch all the strobing videos on YouTube to know how to strobe loll.(I still watch YouTube videos to perfect my contouring skills.its annoying).If you have dry skin avoid any matte product.For oily skin,trust me you need one of the products to be matte (either the primer or foundation).Have a lovely week Guys.Don’t forget to press the “like” button and leave your comments below.
