Color trends: Vampy

I have never been a big fan of dark colours, especially on the lips, but I am so in love with this 'Vampy', deep red/berry trend that is everywhere at the moment, and as the weather gets cold, it makes it even easier to pull off. Here are my top natural picks for this Winter...

This has to be my most lusted after color at the moment and is at the top of my 'must have' list. Torrid is described as a 'black orchid' color and I loved the description as much as i love the color...true vampy and absolutely gorgeous.

Described as a Blackcurrant shade, somewhat similar to Torrid but slightly lighter.


I have had my eye on this lipstick since it first came out but as I didn't think i'd have the confidence to pull off the bold lip, I decided to purchase Humble Me instead. This lipstick contains "the sultry shades of berry and burgundy blended together into this deep, rich hue". The description alone is enough to make me want it.

The nail polish version of Torrid, I think this color would suit anyone and would make any outfit look rather luxurious . 

I am yet to try any polish's from Kure Bazaar but this 'Vampy black cherry' is the one for me to start with. Stunning!

For a nice clean line on the eyes or easily smudged to take the vampy look a step further.

Requested Post: Ilia Beauty Swatches

As requested by Marie, just a quick post to compare Ilia Beauty's Nobody's baby, In Paradise, and Humble Me.

 {l-r: Humble Me, Nobody's Baby, In Paradise}

In Paradise: This color is more coral than it is nude, without being too in-your-face. When this wears off it does leave a coral/hot pink-ish tint behind.

Nobody's Baby: This is the best 'nude' that I have come across that doesn't leave me looking washed out as it is on the pink side rather than being peachy or brownish. A very easy to wear color that I imagine would look good on anyone. 

Humble Me: A true nude that would probably suit those with tanned skin more, on paler skin the peachy/brown tinge looks a bit harsh.

Hope this helped :)

New Launch: Ilia Beauty Lipstick Crayons

I cannot tell you how excited I am that the Ilia Beauty Lipstick Crayons are finally ready to order. I've never purchased a lipstick crayon before, mainly because natural ones aren't exactly common, but I have always admired the look of them, and the fact that they would look nice in a cup on my desk haha. Available for pre-order now, orders are due to ship the week of April 25th.

There are 6 shades to choose from: 

 Dress You Up: A rose-berry mauve.

 99 Red Balloons: A real red with a touch of blue. (Every time I read the name of this the song pops into my head haha)

 Iko Iko: A sheer bronze shimmer.

Karma Chameleon:  A fiery coral hue. (And another with a catchy song name.)

 Call Me: A youthful shade of pink with hints of sweet sixteen.

Come Undone: A quiet nude.

These Lipstick Crayons are packed with the healing oils of sesame, rose-hip and papaya, and they sound amazing. Plus, there is a color to suit everybody. I will definitely be purchasing Karma Chameleon, Dress You Up, and Come Undone (in the hopes it will be my perfect nude). What color will you choose?
