Review: NYX Soft Mate Lip Cream in Copenhagen

Yesterday I went to Ulta and picked up a few things from NYX. I really love the NYX brand, the quality you get for the price is really amazing. My favorite things from them are usually lip products. I picked their lip liner in Currant and the Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen to use together. I have another one of the lip creams in Tokyo that I adore, so I was very excited to try this out.

Unfortunately, I didn't love this color as much as Tokyo. Don't get me wrong it is gorgeous but I found that it was pulling itself off a bit, you can even kind of tell in the photo. After a few hours of wear it was very worn at the edges but thick and weird feeling more in the middle of my lips. I don't know if it was the lip liner I chose to use with it or what but when I tried to touch up it just got worse and I ended up taking it off. I don't know if its just me though so definitely try it for yourself, with a price like that it's worth giving it a shot.

Have you tried these before, what do you think of it?

Talk to you soon

PS: Sorry my brows are weird I am experimenting with different shapes.

Beauty Bits I've Been Coveting

Beauty Bits

Hey there! I know I missed my Wednesday deadline but I have just been working a lot and in general busy (lazy too). I discovered Polyvore today (obviously I have been living under a rock) and I made a little collage of the beauty things I would really like to own. It doesn't have the link to the lipsticks but they are from Pretty Zombie Cosmetics and look absolutely amazing, so definitely check those out. I'll be doing another post in a few days to make up for missing Wednesday, probably my skin care routine so check it out.

XX,  Megan

So, I wore this outfit a few days ago and never got around to posting it, but I still wanted to show you guys. That is why it is outfit of the past (haha) it is a few days late but it is cute, and really affordable, because I don't know about you guys but I do not have a very big budget for clothing.
