Make-up essentials #3 - Lips

Hi guys,

I hope you have enjoyed reading parts 1 and 2 of my Make-up Essentials! As promised, I am going to share with you my favourite lip products.



I am obsessed with matte liquid lipsticks at the minute! They are so easy to apply as they are in the form of a lipgloss and I find that they not only give a better finish than lipsticks but also stay on much longer.

I love trying out new brands and comparing them all to find my favourites so, in true M style, I have recently bought a number of different liquid lipsticks to test out.

Top to Bottom:
NYX / Satin Ribbon
Rimmel Provocalips / Skinny Dipping
NYX / Ruffle Trim
Gerard Cosmetics / Aphrodite
Kylie Jenner / Candy K
NYX / Bedtime Flirt
Gerard Cosmetics / Everything Nice

And my favourite is...

I hadn't heard of this brand until I was having a look on Beauty Bay but I am SO glad I came across it! The colours are strong and vibrant and the finish, although matte, doesn't dry out your lips or cling to certain areas. It also stays on all day/night without re-application which is amazing, especially if you are at work or somewhere you might not have time to re-apply.

I would definitely recommend buying the Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick if you haven't already! You can buy these products from Beauty Bay ( for under £10!


I hope you have enjoyed reading my Make-up Essentials and if you buy any of the products, I hope that you love them as much as I do!

I have been practising make-up more and more recently and I have decided to add a Part 4 to my Make-up Essentials to show you how amazing these products actually are!
