Nyx Slip Tease Lip Lacquer (Strawberry Whip) Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a little review and swatching of one of the Slip Tease Lip Lacquers in the shade Strawberry Whip from Nyx Cosmetics. I purchased this one just before Christmas, and have been wearing it since then. [info in italics taken from the Nyx Canada website]

Nyx Slip Tease Lip Lacquer in Strawberry Whip

Put the moves on your pout with our new Slip Tease Full Colour Lip Lacquer. From seductive nudes to bold berries and more, this luxurious lippie delivers full coverage in 24 pigment-rich and seriously plush shades that shine.

Featuring an hourglass-shaped applicator that makes lining your lips a cinch, each weightless hue slips on comfy-smooth and glossy for a knockout finish. The soft vanilla-mint scent is also pretty irresistible.

This is a glossy liquid lipstick, and is super hydrating. Fairly long wearing, but not smudge or transfer-proof. I love the shade that I bought.

Very hydrating, and pigmented. Not sticky like a regular lip gloss.

Sothys Echappée Parisienne Fall / Winter Makeup Collection

Hello, hello!

Today I’m showing you a few things from the latest makeup collection from Sothys that PozPub sent to me to try out. I received two lipsticks and a liquid liner from their newly launched fall /winter collection titled Echappée Parisienne. The Sothys Fall / Winter Collection is a glamorous and elegant makeup collection, inspired by Paris.

The packaging for both lipsticks is beautiful, a shiny, lacquer type finish that makes it so hard to photograph!

Rouge Intense 236 Bois de Rose Vaugirard (Rosewood) Satin Finish

Sothys Fall Winter Makeup Collection

This is a satin finish lipstick, feels very much like a Bite Beauty lipstick in terms of creaminess. I’ve been wearing this one a lot, it is a beautiful and wearable shade. This is a perfect rosy nude type shade.

Rouge Mat 340 Prune République (Plum) Velvet matte Finish

Sothys Fall Winter Makeup Collection

I have to say that the Rouge Mat Velvet lipsticks are one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks that I’ve ever worn. I really like the shade for days when I want a bolder lip. It is long wearing and highly pigmented.

Sothys Fall Winter Makeup Collection - Calligraphy Liner

This is a smudgeproof liquid liner. Once it dries, it does not budge until you remove it! I like the brush tip, it makes it easy to do both fine and thicker lines. A perfect black liquid liner!

Nyx Machinist Collection – The Lip Products Reviews

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing two of the lip products from Nyx’s recent Machinist Collection (inspired by Steampunk). The Machinist Collection has three themes: Grind, Steam and Ignite. There are two lip products for each of the three themes – the Machinist Lipstick and the Machinist Lip Lacquer. I purchased both in the Ignite shades. [info in italics taken from the Nyx Canada website]

The Lipstick:

Nyx Machinist Lipstick in Ignite

Stud those lips in shimmery color using our limited-edition Machinist Lipstick. This comfortably creamy formula is loaded with ultra-fine pearls that add over-the-top luster to your pout. Available in honey bronze, copper and bronze—representing the Grind, Steam and Ignite facets of our Machinist collection, respectively—these high-coverage lippies are the perf accessories. 

Nyx Machinist Lipstick in Ignite

The Ignite shade of the Lipstick is a dark, vampy, metallic bronze shade. In the tube it looks like it would be more wine toned, but on me it pulls more brown. I do find it a little on the drying side, not terribly so – comparable to a mildly drying matte lipstick. I find that most metallic lipstick shades feel like when I wear them.

The Lip Lacquer:

Nyx Machinist Lip Lacquer in Ignite

Go full steam ahead with Machinist Lip Lacquer. This limited-edition lippie is the Slip Tease Full Color Lip Lacquer you know and love—now in steampunk-inspired shades! Available in wine (Grind), blue (Steam) and nude (Ignite), each grungy tone adds a glossy touch to the Grind, Steam and Ignite facets of our Machinist collection. This perfectly plush lippie goes on silky-smooth and provides full coverage.

Nyx Machinist Lip Lacquer in Ignite

The Ignite shade of the Lip Lacquer is a very wearable nude shade that is super comfortable on the lips – and surprisingly long wearing for a glossy finish liquid lipstick. I’ve been wearing this one a LOT lately!

*In the photo below I’ve swatched the Lip Lacquer rather thick to show the colour*

I’ve also been testing out one of the Machinist Palettes – swatches and review to follow in a few days.

Have you tried anything from the Machinist Collection?

Nyx is cruelty free, however their parent company is not.

Axiology Lip Crayon (Enduring) Review

Axiology Natural Lip Crayon in Enchanting

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Axiology Lip Crayon that came in my September Petit Vour box.  [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Axiology Natural Lip Crayon in Enchanting

Axiology’s lip crayon formula is crafted with deeply replenishing ingredients that keep lips hydrated, all day long. These heavy pigmented shades sweep the lips in a luxurious matte finish—and never lose their luster. With a buttery-soft texture and all-natural + organic ingredients, this lip crayon line is made for the sophisticated and kind lipstick connoisseur. 

The Lip Crayon comes in seven different shades: Bliss (salmon pink with gold shimmer), Enchant (boysenberry cool mauve with silver), Intrigue (cinnamon muted rose), Keen (caramelized grapefruit and watermelon), Serene (burnished rosewood and brown sugar), Valor (marsala) and Enduring (burnt-purple, tinted with rosewood).

Axiology Natural Lip Crayon in Enchanting

I received the Enduring which is a very wearable rosewood MLBB shade – I do not see any hint of the burnt purple from the shade description. The Lip Crayon is so buttery and hydrating, it feels more like a lip balm than a lipstick when applied.

The stunning outer packaging is hand crafted from 100% recycled paper by women in Bali.

Axiology Natural Lip Crayon in Enchanting

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan Shea Butter*, Candelilla Wax*, Castor Oil, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic Avocado Butter, Organic Moringa Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Elderberry Extract, Neem Oil, Sweet Orange Essential Oil May Contain: Iron Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Manganese Violet, Mica *Denotes Wild Harvested. | *Certified Organic

When you look at the ingredients, it shows why the Lip Crayon is so buttery and hydrating. As well, the Axiology Lip Crayon smells like a sweet, juicy orange (yum)! I’d like to try out some of the darker shades to see how they wear.

Have you tried anything from Axiology before? They’re completely new to me.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sweet Cream

Hello, hello!

This is another item from my recent Sephora mini haul from my mother for my birthday. So of course I picked out a Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick! If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you will know that I purchased my first Amuse Bouche Lipstick last year for my birthday as well, and have added a few more in both mini and full size to my collection.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sweet Cream

This is less of a review, and more of a swatching and comparison with the other Amuse Bouche Lipsticks in my stash. In case you aren’t familiar with Bite Beauty, info in italics is taken from the Sephora website.

What it is: 
A collection of high-impact lipsticks in dimensional shades that have been handcrafted to deliver extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear. 
What it does: 
Swipe on bold, creamy lip color with Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche. Created and crafted by hand, Bite’s small batch, low-heat process preserves a balanced blend of lip-quenching nutrients, vitamins, and omega oils that are essential for achieving healthy-looking lips. Made with 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments, this lipstick provides saturated lip color with weightless coverage and a citrus flavor made from fresh pressed fruit. 

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sweet Cream

Initially I was torn between Sweet Cream (muted peach) and Ginger Snap (fresh peach), and after googling several swatches of the two, I decided to pick the shade Sweet Cream, hoping that it would be a fresh coral shade on my lips.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sweet Cream

Onto the swatches!

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sweet Cream

I could not have picked a more perfect coral shade for me! It pairs beautifully with several peachy coral toned blushes in my collection.

*Random information – back in 2015, I only had three blushes in my collection!*

Ok, back to swatching all of my Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks with Sweet Cream.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Swatches

The Perfect Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set Swatches

Hello, hello!

Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick

Today I’m swatching The Perfect Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set from Bite Beauty. I gifted it to myself for Christmas during the Sephora sale. I’ve previously reviewed the Amuse Bouche Lipsticks, and love the formula, so this is just more of a swatching and colour commentary. If you want to read my reviews, they’re here and here (oh and also here) [info in italics taken from the Sephora website]

Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick

What it does:
Channel your inner elegance with these four bestselling mini Amuse Bouche Lipsticks that give lips either a subtle hint of color or a bright pop—all with a satin finish. Create flawless and polished lip looks with this giftable collection of trendy nude and bold shades. 

Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick

This set contains:
– 4 x .05 oz/ 1.55 g Lipsticks in Honeycomb (beige nude), Sugarcane (pale pink), Rhubarb (rich plum rose), Cayenne (bright red) 

Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks

Honeycomb – this beige toned nude shade does not work with my winter pale colouring, and I highly doubt that it will work for my slightly less pale colouring in the spring and summer. I’ll try using it with other lipsticks.

Sugarcane – this pale pink lip is lovely, more for spring / summer than for this time of year when I’m super pale.

Rhubarb – I have this rich plum rose shade in full size and absolutely love it all year round!

Cayenne – this is such a bright red! Very dramatic, I love it!

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
