MIZON | MECCA MAXIMA $15
The texture of this lip gloss, is silky smooth and definitely ‘juicy’. A little is required and I suppose it would depend on what you eat/drink, but it would last for a good hour or two. It’s super compact, so you can easily have it on the go.
Nourishing due to the mixture of its quantity and enriching essence. It has collagen to assist with moisturising your lips, transforming your chapped lips to a more youthful appearance and feel. It does recommend apply it 20 minutes before jumping under the sun, as it contains UV protection. The only criticism I have about this product, is that it claims to ‘plump lips’. I think it just gives the illusion due to the gloss overlay, but overall I quite like how its non-sticky, no scent and the clear sheen it provides.

TOO FACED | MECCA MAXIMA $27
I normally don’t wear lip glosses, due to find sometimes I find the shine to be too much for casual wears. However, this product is not overly glossy and is almost natural for my lip colour. I got mine in the name of Pure Peach.
Non-sticky this colour slightly has an dark pink, orange underlay, which is lovely to be worn on its own or over a liner. The wear time is short-lived, so constant applying is needed. Combining peach oil and coconut oil, not only makes it smell and taste like peaches, it moisturises and softens. With the mixture of Vitamin E, this a sure hit for this season.

LUSH COSMETICS $9.95
You will get addicted to this scrub, even unconsciously taking a few caster sugar down. The caster sugar is infused with jojoba oil to gently exfoliate the dead skin away. At the same time, not loosing its softness and moisture.
Undeniably sweet,tastes almost like candy, it does a good job in creating a smooth base for any lip products afterwards. It does get messy, so a dab is more than enough. Be mindful however to scrub generously, as you may miss on some spots.

DIOR | SEPHORA $33
I cannot get over this lip balm!! I purchased mine in Sheer Natural Pink so I can wear it everyday, without it looking harsh.
I have been wearing it everyday, as the sheer balm not only moisturises and hydrates, but also provides a natural pink gloss. The main ingredients for hydration is mango butter and loofah extract. For me, it stays on about 4+ hours. Additionally it has SPF 10, a colour reviver technology which lets the product react with the chemistry with one’s lips.

LIPSTICK QUEEN | MECCA MAXIMA $35
A vivid item that pays off well throughout the day, however you may need to lip line your lips for longer wear. I am not a fan of nude lipsticks, because I find it too extreme against my face. But the Peachy Nude shade from Lipstick Queen is heavenly!
With hints of light pink blush and nude, mixed together, you can pair it nicely with a cream, white casual outfit. The texture I find it flexible for everyday wear, because of its low intensity and silky to matte finish.

It Cosmetics | Sephora $28
A lip liner that is not only waterproof, but also long-lasting (about 8 hours) which I absolutely love. It is a perfect shade of red that goes with my everyday red lipsticks. Highly pigmented, and if you are almost this shade it looks completely natural.
Comes in 8 shades and I think for its price and how effective it is, I would not mind purchasing the rest. Runs on creamy and I do find it ultra hydrating throughout the day. Infused with collagen, avocado oil, shea buter, aloe, jojoba and much more, your lips will feel moist any time of the day. I also find, that it can stand alone when your lips need an extra colour boost.

Too Faced | Mecca Maxima $28
I tried being adventurous one day and bought myself a nude lipstick. But not just any lipstick, a lipstick that is liquified so when applied the colour comes out highly intense and creamy. Colour wear I would say stays on for quite a bit, maybe about 12+ hours, though do wear lipliner under. The rich liquid lipstick does not come out matte, as it has a bit of shine.
It was a successful hit when it came out, because of the variety of colours that it came out with and no other brand really had one like it. The packaging is adorable and the tip is made with an angled tip with a velvet touch. I highly recommend this line, the pigment is amazing.

Kit Cosmetics | Mecca Maxima $24.95
A lot similar to the Dream Weaver, this lipstick is a bit more on the pink, coral side. Beautiful for that extra flush on your natural pink lips. Matte-finish which has an average wear time, so best suited with a tint under or re-application throughout the day. It is mixed with Vitamin E, so for me I do find it highly hydrating as well as easy application, though best wear lip-balm before hand if you have extra-dry lips like me.

Too Faced | Mecca Maxima $22
I would not be so quick to call it perfect, as I do find this liner to be quiet fine and faint. Perhaps it would compliment well to nude lipsticks, but even so I find it does not do much help. However, I do find this liner to be a bite helpful in outlining areas that needs to be traced, especially in the inner lip area. When filling my overall lips, it comes out to be too chalky and does not ensure longer lipstick wear.
In the design of the pencil, I truly am in love just look at the packaging! I got mine in ‘Nude’. The length and having a soft area to hold, makes it extremely easy to use. It is a twist-up tip and I find it does not need to be sharpened. Overall, I would not go looking for this lip liner again, maybe another in their brand.

Bite Beauty | Sephora $30
Sorry for the late post, so here it is…
With about 12 ranges of matte colours, this lip crayon covers you from nudes, reds and profound burgundies. I chose this lovely ‘rose pink’, giving me that highly pigmented pink when my own colour needs that youthful boost. Firstly, I want to highlight the fact that I got obsessed with the scent! It literally smells like strawberry bubblegum… and applying it onto my lips, took an extra effort to not eat the creme.
It states to have ‘super hydration’, by using orange peel wax and antioxidant properties of resveratrol. Though for me it was not hydrating, I did find myself using lip balm over it to keep the colour going. For yourself, it may last longer. The crayon had a slight resistance to water, but like stated earlier it did not last long for me.
