Sleek Matte Me Lip Stain

I have heard some relatively good things about this lip product so I thought I would try it out for myself and give my verdict. I got the shades Fandango Purple and Birthday Suit and I cannot rave them highly enough! First off, the colours I bought are amazing, they are so opaque and bright that you need only the smallest amount of product on the applicator. 


I was looking for a nice purple-y shade for Autumn and Winter and I think this might be the one because it is a really fun colour that just make your lips look great. Since they are matte lip stains, they do feel dry on the lips but to solve this problem, you can just slap on some vaseline or lip balm and you are good to go. Of course if you are not a huge fan of matte products, they also have a 'Gloss Me' lip products with similar colours. 

This is Birthday Suit and I have been searching for a matte nude for a while, this might be the one I will stay with. It is a nice brown-y nude so it doesn't wash out your face and make you look deadly, and it is also great for everyday wear if you are just sporting a simple eye makeup look! Another I love is the lip stain bottle, it just looks so pretty and 'sleek' :P

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

Monte Carlo / Antwerp


Monte Carlo
  • At first, I was a bit taken aback with these lip creams because using a normal amount of product makes the colour look extremely and shockingly vibrant. I've learnt that using literally the smallest amount can give you the right lip look, so these products will definitely last for ages! 
  • The texture is creamy as stated in the name of the product so that is expected, kind of the feeling after you just ate cake. Initially, it felt odd but then you get used to it and it dries soon after so that feeling doesn't last long. 
  • It dries matte which I prefer over a glossy finish, and it doesn't completely dry out your lips which is a pro! They are basically like lip stains which are great for me because I am so lazy when it comes to re-applying lip products so this is a win! They last so long and don't come off with food or water.

Monki Pepita Bag (Leopard Print)

I've been eyeing some Monki stuff on ASOS for a while, especially this bag so I decided to finally buy it and I was very happy with my purchase! I had actually bought the miracle purse of this green leopard print as well but the shape and size of the purse didn't look like a purse, it was more like a flat pencil case which isn't very pretty to me so I returned it. However, this bag is great because it looks very trendy, it has three compartments inside and it is a cute small size so I can wear it for shopping outings or even partying, as a clutch.

It's made of a type of plastic but it feels a bit like felt so it doesn't feel cheap. It's actually an envelope bag, which I was unaware of but I still like it nonetheless!
