ColourPop Creme Lux Lipstick Swatch & Review on Asian Skin

The ColourPop Lux Lipsticks have been out for awhile and I've been collecting them slowly because I just can't keep up with all the new stuff. I would love to get everything to swatch but I'm no "self-made billionaire" Kardashian. 

These are the Creme formulas with a satin finish - some appear more matte than others though. They retail for $7 and you get 3.5g of product. Everything from the packaging to the formula to the performance is well worth that 7 bucks and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new lippie. There is a color for everyone and I have 12 with me at the moment. I think they have well over 30 shades though...some would not look good on me, but these 12? Yasss gimme more.

These lippies give one swipe pigmentation and they glide on easily. They are very comfortable to wear throughout the day without drying your lips out. They do transfer but not majorly like some other creamy lipsticks. I think these wear off very gracefully and some shades do leave a stain behind as well to help with the look. 

Btw, my skintone is Asian NC 20 with warm neutral undertones. 

Pinkies Up
This is described as a rosey nude and I think it is the perfect MLBB or nude shade for me. It is a pink-toned nude so it really goes well with anything and everything. Definitely a must-have! This was supposed to be a limited edition shade but it has been on the site for forever. Currently on sale at $5.60.

LA Lady
This is a rosey terracotta shade. It's a warm toned nude that isn't took dark or too light. This shade would definitely look good on anyone.

Still Crazy
This is a mauvey pink and I wish it appeared more muted on me. Also, the swatch photo for this shade on the CP website is totally MISLEADING and wrong. I've not seen other swatches that look like those shown on the website.

C'Mon Sis (Shayla x ColourPop)
This is a limited edition collab shade that is way too similar to Still Crazy. It is less pink, more berry red but it is described as a pinkey brown. I think this is the perfect lip stain kind of shade.

This is a medium rose. It is a really fun shade that isn't too bright.

Angel City (Butterfly Spring Collection)
This is described as a dusty berry and I think it is the perfect red-but-not-really-red shade for those who want a red shade that isn't too bold or bright. I pined for this shade for a really long time before getting it lol.

This is described as a true terracotta and I think it is a perfect burnt orange shade for fall. It's not too warm and not too bright. Perfect. Just perfect. A must have on my list!

Liquid Courage
This is described as a brick red, which is again, a really nice version of a muted red. I really like this shade too.

Unravelled (Spring Butterfly Collection)
This is a bright violet pink and such a fun color. It's on sale right now because it's going to be discontinued soon. Tbh, I picked it up because it was on sale.

This is a deep plummy beige and I love shades like this! It makes your lips look so juicy and it's also a really unique and pretty color. I'd say you need this one too.

This is a rich chocolatey brown shade. I don't really wear brown lipsticks but it does make me feel like eating chocolate.

Finally, we have this beautiful deepened teal. It is more of a denim blue teal which is absolutely gorgeous and also very unique among the teal lipsticks out there. This one is very pigmented, not patchy at all and nothing short of fantastic. I love me a good teal lipstick so if you love teals, get it! It does stain the lips pretty badly though, so if you need to remove it while you are outside, you'd best have a backup lipstick to hide that stain.

So from the Creme finishes, these are all the shades that I like or would wear. I'm not sure why I don't have Hello Stranger yet because I need a good dark red lipstick too. I wouldn't really steer towards the other shades that I didn't buy because they are either too pale or too bright or shades that I would not reach for other than to swatch for a post.

Matte Lux Lipsticks up next!

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them. I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious.  I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas

Arctic Fox Hair Dye Review on Dark Unbleached Hair

I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon .  Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and w

Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss Swatches & Review on Asian Skin (NC20)

Lime Crime came out with their new line of sheer lip glosses recently. I've done a swatch and review video on YouTube but I haven't done a write-up with close up swatch pictures for anyone who wants reference. There are 14 shades in total at the moment and they retail for $18. You get 2.96ml of product in each tube, which honestly is quite little. These lip glosses come in a chubby clear acrylic tube with a pink cap. The tube itself is quite big but don't let it fool you, because 2.96ml/0.1oz of product isn't as much as it looks. The applicator is a really big doe foot which is great for full lips but for me, it's just way too big and the applicator tends to pick up too much product for one application. The lip gloss has a delicious cherry candy scent to it which I love though! These go on sheer because they are meant to be sheer lip glosses. They give a nice tinted look but some colors tend to look streaky up close because of this. They do sink into your l
