Mac’s Sushi Kiss

Hey lovelies,

as you all probably know by now I’m massively obsessed with lipsticks and especially Mac ones. Thanks to my amazing grandma I could welcome another member to the family a few days back: it’s Mac Sushi Kiss, which has been on my wish list for quite some time.

Sushi kiss is a very pale but bright orange that comes in a Satin formula, so it’s more of a semi-matte finish.. Nearly a year ago I bought my first ever orange lipstick, which was Mac Morange. Morange is one of my favorite summer lipsticks, which I love to use to brighten up a more simple outfit. However, when I saw Sushi Kiss somewhere online I right away fell for the shade because it’s very orange as well but it’s a very light almost pastel shade of orange, even though it looks very bright in these pictures. I just think it’s a very unique shade and so stunning over the summer month. And obviously I LOVE the name. It’s so freaking cute.

The lipstick itself applies very evenly and glides on very smoothly, however, I’ve noticed that it can emphasize any dry patches you may have, so just make sure to moisturize your lips very well and you should by fine. When it comes to lasting power this one will definitely last you for a few good hours and the best thing is that it fades away evenly until it only leaves a stain. If you find this color to be a bit bright and intimidating when fully applied it looks really nice as just a stain.

So to conclude I’m so happy with this shade. Not only am I in love with the adorable name but I think Sushi Kiss is such a fun and vibrant color, that is perfect for the summer months if you are someone who doesn’t shy away from loud colors!

The Best Things About Fall (in my opinion)

So October is really here and fall has now officially begun! It’s just crazy how fast time is flying by. It feels like I just returned from my summer vacation yesterday but now it’s already October and my first midterms are coming up. Crazy times.

If you would ask me what my favorite season is I couldn’t really give you a concrete answer because I feel like there are great things about any season and I can’t ever decide. When it’s cold and winter I want it to be warm and summer and when it’s warm and summer I’m wishing for cold winter, so I can wear my favorite knitted sweaters. Anybody else got that problem or am I just weird like that?

Anyway… I absolutely adore fall. I have some of the best fall childhood memories, which is why I’ll probably always be excited about fall. In today’s post I’ll be sharing my favorite things about fall with you guys as you might’ve been able to guess from the title. Well, here we go!

Hot Chocolate with Marshallows

I’m not the biggest person on hot drinks. I stopped drinking coffee a while ago and the only tea I really enjoy is green tea. But I love me some hot chocolate and especially with marshmallows. It is just such a delicious treat. When it’s really cold outside and you come home and make yourself some hot chocolate and cuddle up with your favorite blanket to watch a good movie… perfection!

Knitted Sweaters

Knitted sweaters are an obsession of mine. I keep buying new ones every year as soon as the weather’s slightly cooling down. They are just so cozy and warm and comfy and perfect. How can you not love them?

Halloween

I love horror movies. I don’t know why because I get scared so freaking easily. My brother loves to jump up behind me and scare me to death all the time but I still am obsessed with horror movies. I even watch them by myself. Like literally completely alone and in the dark! Insane, I know! So  I guess it comes as no surprise, that  I love Halloween. I don’t know why but I find the whole spooky thing just so fascinating.

Crafting

When I was younger my mom would always do so much crafting with my brother and me. Since the weather got colder and we couldn’t play outside as much anymore we would make hot chocolate, get some cookies out and sit around our big kitchen table, making our own DIY fall decoration for the house or just anything crafty and artsy really. I’m not the most talented, when it comes to crafting but I had the time of my life anyway. I wish we’d still do that! Maybe I should suggest it but nowadays my brother’s caught up with school and I have lots to do with University classes.

The Nature

I just love how the leaves changes colors. In general I just love fall colors. The pretty dark reds and green and orange. It’s just so nice to get my dog and go for a walk through the forrest. Everything just looks so pretty.

Dark Lips

Last but absolutely not least I love dark lips. Being obsessed with make up I just love wearing my dark reds and purple lipstick during fall and winter season. I just like they way the look with my pretty pale skin.

So these are my favorite things about fall! Are you excited it’s finally fall? What are your favorite things about this season?

A Perfect Summer Red: Mac’s Relentlessly Red

SAMSUNG CSC

I’m a massive lipstick lover and a firm believer, that you can pull off almost every lipstick shade all year around depending on how you do it. Still I know a lot of people like to change their lipsticks as the seasons pass. Dark red shades are usually more worn in winter and pink and other bright shades such as coral are loved in summer. But still who says you can’t wear red out on a nice summer’s day? Especially if it’s the perfect summer red and I think I’ve found my perfect summer’s day red in Mac’s Relentlessly Red.

Relentlessly Red is describes as a “bright pinkish coral matte”, which is a pretty good description of the color. It is as a medium-dark, very bright coral-red with pinky undertones. The name of the lipstick might be a bit misleading though because it is definitely not a classic red shade. In my opinion it is more of a summer version of a red lipstick and it would probably look very good with tan skin. I have a bit of a tan on my arm but other than that I’m still pretty pale. Nevertheless it looks good on pale skin as well but I do think it is a color, that would really compliment a tan. Here’s a swatch for you guys!

As beautiful as this color is keep in mind, that this is a retro matte lipstick, meaning that you will need to moisturise your lips a lot better before applying this. Otherwise it will cling to every little dry patch and your lips won’t be fabulous summer lips but stained and dry. If you prep your lips with a good lip balm or moisturiser you won’t run into any problems. The lipstick itself is quite long lasting, so you don’t have to re-apply it too often. It will probably last you up to 7 hours. Lastly I have a picture for you on how it looks on the lips. Please excuse the quality though. My camera decided to be an a** today  and kept making my pictures blurry and then the battery died, so I had to use my iPod.

YSL Flowercrush Rouge Volupte no. 32 Corail Jalouse

Hey there lovelies,

for my birthday I received quite a lot to gift cards for my favorite make up store, so when I saw the new YSL spring collection Flowercrush, one of their lipsticks was at the very top of my list. The other day my order finally came in and once again I fell in love with the YSL lipsticks.

For their new spring collection they have added 4 new shades to their Rouge Volupte Lipstick line. One very bright pink shade, one coral shade and two red shades. I decided to go with the coral shade called Corail Jalouse, because I don’t own a similar lipstick shade to it.

The packaging is, like always, very luxurious. The lipstick itself is very easy to apply and lasts quite long. I absolutely love the color though. It is a pink coral kind of shade and perfect for spring and summer. One other amazing aspect is that the lipstick actually smells kind of peachy.

It’s no secret, that I love the YSL lipsticks and this might become my new favorite. The color is gorgeous and perfect for spring. It lasts pretty long and it looks so stunning.

Have you tried any of the YSL products?

Have a great weekend!
