Hey People,
Today i will be reviewing my mini limecrime veletines collection! Before i owned any Lime crime lippies, i was never really into the whole liquid to matte thing. Thanks to Instagram shoving the brand down out throats i found my self visiting the website and drooling over all the colors they had. My faves where Pansy and Utopia and i kept obsessing about these two because the colors are just so vibrant and i love my brights. 

WHAT LIMECRIME SAYS: THE ORIGINAL LIQUID-TO-MATTE LIPSTICK!Texture of a rose petal... in a bottle! Velvetines go on liquid, but dry matte. Touch-proof, transfer-proof & utterly addictive.

 This color was one i just had to have! I had been eyeing it for the longest tome. It is such a vibrant pinky purple. It is not exactly either of the two. It shows up as a slight hint of both. It is superpigmented and possesses such powers! LOL. The staying power is great and it feels so smooth on the lips. Not heavy or drying. I also noticed that it was a little tough to find a dupe for this. It is such a unique color.


Shroom is a soft nude brown color. It is possibly the lightest shade of brown there is just before it tips over to a nude color. It blends into my lip color so well. It is a "my lips but better" shade on me. I love pairing this with a smokey eye. It dries to a soft matte color and is super long lasting too. I see people calling this a 'Poo colored shade" on IG. I find that hilarious! ;D.. Not on me though.


Pansy is the most vibrant deep purple lippie ever. I always thought nothing could beat Mac Heroine but this definitely does. When  saw this i knew i had nothing like it in my collection and i had to have it. It brightens up the face and you have to be super bold to rock this color. It is not for the faint hearted but this is right up my alley. It looks best with a simple neutral eye to keep the color the focus of the look but you can always go crazy with it. There are no rules with makeup. ;)

That's it for my review guys. I want to get Pink Velvet and Red Velvet. I have enough red's in my collection but i think those are stable liquid to matte colors to own. Lime crime recently released two nee shades called Squash and Jinx. Jinx is right up my alley tho. I may purchase if i can't find a proper dupe. What are your fave colors? Do let me know.

PRICE: The lippies cost $20 but retail anywhere from 6000-6500 depending on the reseller.

Everyone who knows me know's i do not play with my nude lippies. As much as i love my vibrant colors,i get super excited about nudes. No matter the formula be it matte, glossy,creme i am always willing to try it out ... I got some makeup from Colourpop recently and i did a little research on the nude lipsticks they have in their collection. I went on the site of a couple retailers here and i was able to get my hands on a color i liked called Brink!! 

WHAT COLOURPOP SAYS: Brink is a warm dusty taupe in a matte finish. Curated by @brittanysuleiman. Inspired by the insta-famous Kylie lip.

DAZZLEBEAUTIE: This color is a pretty pinky nude. It is matte but not drying at all. It applies smoothly and the color is very pigmented. Just one swipe and you get really good color payoff. Be sure to exfoliate your lips before applying this as it tends to emphasize the lips a little. The product is encased in a twist up stick which i think is okay. Personally, i like my lipsticks in the traditional bullet cases but this is okay too. It is slim and fits well in my purse or makeup bag. This looks great with a neutral eye or a smokey eye. My fave lip pencils to pair this with are Cabernet by Bolwin cosmetics and Mac Currant.

Hello Guys!!
I did a little Colourpop lippie haul a few weeks back. Now Colourpop is at the top of their game right now and they are releasing new colors and collections every other day. For the price, what's not to love? Before i picked these up, i did some research on the colors i felt would suit my skin tone as there where just too many to pick from.

Colour pop released 25 shades of liquid lipsticks and at a later date, released 8 new shades. You know those sold out in a flash! I was able to purchase 7 shades from the first set and 1 shade from the second. I got Mars but i had already taken these babies their group picture and i really didn't feel like doing it over again.
Trap is a good dupe for Lime Crime Cashmere and L.A Splash Ghoulish. This color slides on easy and dries to matte greige color. This color is such a popular alternative to nude now. They whole grey lip trend suits a variety of skin tones too, depending on how you apply it.It is super long lasting and i had no problems using this. You can even get away without a lip liner. 
Bumble is a good dupe for LimeCrime Riot, L.A Splash Latte Confession and  Kat Von D Double Dare. This color is so pretty and flattering on all skin tones. I used this recently for a makeup look at it is just the prettiest color. It will look great with a peachy gold eye look and even an intense smokey eye.
Tulle is one of my favs from the bunch. It is such a cool 90s inspired color that looks great with  simple neutral eye and a sexy brown smokey eye. This is easy to apply, not streaky and does not move till you take it off. Gorgeous!! 
Limbo is a spot on dupe for Lime Crime Salem.This has to be one of the most spot on dupes i saw for it. I wanted to get Salem for the longest time but i kept holding off on it for some reason. The makeup gawds have told me why! This color is intense. I usually tend to stay away from such colors as i am a bright lip girl and deep colors tend to make me look older. With this, not so much. Same as the others with the consistency. Easy to apply and super longlasting. MAC Antique Velvet lipstick is also similar but not so dry. It can always be blotted down to erase the shine.
Lychee is a bright violet color that reminds me of Candy yum yum without the extra neon. I actually thought this was a dupe for LimeCrime Utopia but they are two very different colors. Utopia is more deep in tone. This color is very pigmented and stands out. If you are into brights this is definitely for you.
Now Highball is a beautiful color!! I mean just look at it. But the formula, HORRIBLE!! It is super streaky and clumpy. I do not know how colourpop managed to mess such a pretty color up. I had to layer it about three times to get it even. After doing that, my lips became so heavy. I tried to move it a little bit and it just cracked on me. I was super dissapointed with this one. If you can skip this i advise you do, or wear it with a lip liner and apply just a tiny bit in the center.

Now this is my best color from the 8 new shades released. This color is a star!!! This is the most vibrant true purple ever. I thought it would be a dupe for LimeCrime Pansy but it is deeper. The color is so pigmented i cannot even describe. If you follow me on IG(preciousbeautie) i did a look with this and it was just so nice. This color is one of a kind and the matte finish is everything. I highly recommend this color.

Thats it for my review guys! What colors do you like and have? Kindly let me know below.  I cant wait to get my hands on Kapow and Beeper. I have a big thing for nudes. 

Thanks for stopping by!!


Hi Guys!!!

Over the long weekend, i attended the makeup masterclass organised by MyMakeupNG and BeautyinLagos. The master educator series is a monthly event that will provide makeup enthusiasts the opportunity to learn from seasoned professionals. When i saw Labisi Folawiyo was up next i just had to attend. Her work is absolutely beautiful and i just had to see her in action.  

The look she showed us was a shimmery smokey eye with glitters and a pale pink lip. I must say Labisi is really a pro at what she does. She was patient, in-depth and answered every single question she was asked with so much confidence and ease. I was very pleased with the turnout at the class. She really has a strong following and she deserves it.

I learn't some new tips and tricks and i can't wait to use them on both myself and my clients in the future.

I took a few snaps of my look outside. Lighting was perfect and i was feeling this lip color!!! :D
