I love make up. But sometimes I do think I’m a bit boring with it. Always switching between the same 3 or so looks. Okay let’s be honest. I have my favourite colourful look, and then the other styles are just minus the dramatic eyeshadow on days I can’t be bothered.

I wish I could be more adventurous with it, but with pale skin, freckles and ginger hair, finding complimenting colours can be a challenge.

But the other day, I had a moment of courage and went to a few make up stores looking for the NYX Cosmetics – Stone Fox Liquid Suede Lipstick.

This in itself it’s crazy for me as I never wear lipstick. Not because I don’t want too, but because I can never find a colour that suits me.

I love dark lip colours.

I think they look incredible, which is why I wish I could pull them off so much. Even knowing I most likely wouldn’t be able to wear it, the NYX looks like such a good shade when I’ve seen others wear it, I was desperate to try it out.

Typically, as you can probably tell from the picture, I didn’t get the grey lipstick. I wasn’t able to find anywhere that stocked the NYX range.

So I started looking at some of the lipsticks they did have. Most of them nude shades. After testing a few boring colours against my skin tone, I picked up the Moca Liquid Lip Colour By Rimmel. I thought it was cute, but mainly brought it because I’d been shopping for a while, and just didn’t want to go home empty handed.

But wow!

That’s a lot of selfies, but it’s a lovely colour and actually compliments my complexion. Or at least I think it does.

It’s a matte lipstick, which I much prefer. And it stays on like a dream. Drink proof. Kiss proof. You name it! Even when I wanted to take it off, I couldn’t. I had to scrub it off with a make up wipe.

So yeah, it’s 2017 and I’ve only just found a lipstick that I like. I guess all good things do come to those who wait!


I’ve been looking at the Stone Fox Lipstick online… There will be an update if I eventually do have the courage again.
