I depotted all of my favourite lipsticks today.
I had two of these palettes already made-up from a while back, but I bought two new empty palettes yesterday.
I’ve collected so many great lipsticks over the past year that I simply can’t carry them all around in my kit, so it’s ideal for me to crush them into these palettes as a space saver.
Today I created a bright palette & one that contains deeper shades.
If you’re starting out with new palettes & a ton of difference lipsticks, I would advise putting all them in a colour order as best as possible.
I have so many shades of Red, and ideally I would of liked to of put them in one palette in a range of dark to light shades, but I created my palettes at different times so I wasn’t able to do this.
But you would find it beneficial in picking out the shade you want if they are all together in a colour order.
You can get these palettes from a variety of makeup brands. And also rather cheaply on eBay for an unbranded version from China!
Enjoy depotting your Lippy ladies! 💄💋
Woke up to these beauties this morning!!
alexapersicocosmetics sent me a package full of goodies to try out, and the first thing I wanted to swatch was these beautiful lipsticks.
The colours are amazing - very girly and they feel so silky.
The lipsticks take a couple of swipes to gain a nice opacity, but then we all swipe ‘left to right’ then back to the left again when applying lippy, so these are great if you only want a wash of colour on your lips or if you wish to build up intense colour.
There are 11 shades in total on Alexa’s website, covering a nice range of colours.
From having only swatched these lipsticks, the staying power was ridiculous! I couldn’t budge them off my arm, I had to use Abschminke by Kryolan. It’s an emollient that is great at removing stubborn makeup products.
So if the swatching is anything to go by, these lipsticks will definitely stay in place!
Alexa Persico lipsticks retail at $12.99 each.

Here is a brief breakdown of how I created this makeup look on my client, Dilara, today;
*Cleanse skin with Bioderma ‘Sensitive’.
*Apply ‘Matte Veil’ by Illamasqua down the centre of the face.
*Then ‘Hydra Veil’ by Illamasqua over the rest of the face.
*Prime eyelid using Kryolan Primer.
*Neturalise the eyelid with Sephora concealer, this will act as a base for the eyeshadow.
*First eyeshadow to apply over the mobile eyelid is ‘Dark Horse’ from Urban Decay Naked 1.
*Over that is ‘Smog’ also from the Naked 1 palette.
*Smoke outwards & upwards using a blending brush, softening through the socket.
*On the inner 1/3 of mobile lid apply ‘St.Topaz’ (Gold) by Coastal Scents.
*Apply ‘Shroom’ by MAC on the inner corner of the eyes for added highlight.
*On the outer corner of the mobile lid apply ‘Black Bear’ eyeshadow by Louise Young.
*Blend lightly at the edge creating more of a smokey eye.
*Through the socket of the eyes apply some matte bronzer or a warm Brown colour.
*Use Bobbi Brown ‘Ink Black’ gel liner on the waterline.
*Clean away fall-down (loose eyeshadow) from under the eyes.
*Highlight & contour using a foundation that’s two shades lighter & two shades darker than your skin tone.
*To do this, use a beauty blender & stipple a foundation that matches your skin tone over the rest of your face as well as the highlight & contour.
*Under lower lashes apply the same eyeshadows as used on top lid.
*Smoke out using a pencil brush.
*Define brows & use a concealer to create a clean defined line under the brows.
*Line top lid using the Black gel liner from Bobbi Brown, and wing it out.
*Apply mascara & lashes - top & bottom.
*Use a Peachy coloured Blush on your cheekbones (Juicy Moods by Kryolan)
*Add some highlight by TheBalm to the highest part of your cheekbone.
*Line lips using ‘StripDown’ by MAC.
*Apply ‘Cherish’ lipstick by MAC.
*Set the foundation down the centre of the face using translucent powder.
Today I received a package from Coastal Scents with some new products to test out.
And the first thing I pulled out was something I initially thought had gone mouldy, but upon closer inspection I realised it was African Black Soap - phew! Lol…
For many years, Ghanaians have pressed and used this 100% natural African Black Soap, as it has been known to help to with issues such as acne, oily skin, blemishes, and other skin problems.
As well as the above, African Black Soap is also known for soothing skin irritations and conditions such as eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis.
It removes makeup, dirt, and oil while leaving the skin super clean, creating a healthy fresh glow.
I gave it a go for the first time today, and my face feels very smooth like it’s had a deep clean and been exfoliated.
I’ll see how I get on with it and update you in a few weeks.
