NYX Liquid Lipstick Review

So a couple of week ago I decided to treat myself to a couple of new lipsticks. I've had my eye on some NYX lippy shades for a while and this time I just thought i'd take the plunge and get a couple. I've never owned a liquid lipstick before nor have I owned anything from NYX so I was rather excited to try something new. I'm a bit late jumping on the bandwagon I'm aware but I wanted to share with you the things that I love and dislike about them.

This lip shade is from the Soft matte collection and is perfect for autumn and winter months due to its plummy berry shade. It looks lovely on the lips, when applying it goes on smoothly with no streaks. However it is a bit drying on the lips but out of the two it is the least drying, it also takes a while to dry completely. For me personally the negatives don't put me off that much because I absolutely adore this colour on me and I do love the product.

This lip shade is from the Liquid Suede collection and I know I'll be wearing this colour at any time of the year. I'd say this is a dupe for Velvet teddy as it looked quiet similar when I had it on my lips BUT I think I'm the only person that can't tell the difference between all nudes, they all look the same to me. But back to the product. I absolutely love this shade, as I'm a big nude lipstick fan, but this one is very drying, it doesn't feel very pleasent so I'm not a big fan. This one also takes a while to dry but even when it's dry to me it feels quiet sticky on the lips and that's a big factor to put me off. I'm not overly all that impressed with their suede collection so I don't think i'll be trying any more shades any time soon.

Out of the two, they're completely different shades and I absolutely adore both colours but Budapest has to be my favourite overall. I'm highly impressed with the Soft matte collection, I'd like to invest in some other colours because I've fallen in love already.

What was your favourite out of the two? Have you tried any of the NYX liquid lipsticks? Let me know your thoughts.

Don't forget you can find me in all these places too!

Back to blogging (life update)

Hey lovelies,

It's been a while since I last blogged so this is going to be a short chatty post just to let you know where I'm at now if any of you have an ounce of interest.

ANYWAY, the reason why I left without an explanation is because I moved up to Liverpool for University and just got caught up in everything, so much was going on and I found it hard to juggle multiple things about because there was meeting new people and getting to know them, easing myself into my new course, as well as adjusting this this new environment and living away from home with people I've just met for the first time. Let's just say I went through a roller coaster of emotions. I didn't 'party hard' neither, I'm basically already a granny at the age of 20, wow. 

In that short space of time, I found myself becoming more and more unhappy and feeling really low that I isolated myself and didn't really socialise as much as I should have done, hence why I didn't live up to the student life drinking the majority of the time. So I've taken myself away from the situation and decided to come back home and commute to uni instead, it just wasn't for me, not yet anyway. Moving back home has to be one of the best decisions I've ever made with regards putting my happiness first, if I'd have stayed it would have only got worse. However now I'm feeling miles better, I can't help but feel like I'm missing everyone and that I'm away from everything. Just wish there was a way to meet in the middle were i'm in a happy mental state but still get to stay close with all my friends and go out and all that jazz even if I am living at home. 

So yeah I'm back home, feel like i'm me again, finally returning to blogging but drowning in assignment after assignment, and no money creeping into my overdraft because I can't manage my money to save my life. 

Hope you're all well and have a lovely weekend, sending all my love x
