NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick

I was a complete liquid lipstick virgin before biting the bullet and purchasing this one from NYX Cosmetics. I had only the reviews from fellow beauty blogger and YouTubers to go by, so I was restrained and only bought the one to trial. I’m not one for spending time perfecting my lippy, so I was […]

The Flawless Drugstore Base | Oily Skin
