Feels like it’s been ages since I blogged, sheesh! Hope everyone’s been well :). Another ‘first look’ post for you lovelies and I am so excited about this one and you’ll see why in a little bit.
My Makeup isn’t a stranger on BiL and my love for this online store isn’t a secret and it appears they love me too because they have just gone and named a lipstick after yours truly! :D. So this is kind of old gist, because I have posted this on my instagram page (you really should follow me: @BeautyInLagos), but I did not mention the other shades I received and I wanted to do that in this post.

A few months ago they launched their ‘Lip Candy’ collection with a total of 13 shades (for now), and you cannot imagine my face when they told me there was a ‘Beauty In Lagos’ shade in there.

The name ‘Lip Candy’ is right as these colours in particular remind me of just that and all three shades are very-pigmented.

I absolutely LOVE this colour. It’s a bright coral, very punchy, very playful. I can just imagine this worn against a very flawless base, bare eyes, with just a liner and full lashes. And like I said these lip colours are very pigmented!

This shade is just so interesting and mysterious it’s a bright lilac shade with blue undertones. I kept looking at myself in the mirror whilst swatching this one. And one minute I’m like ‘yeah I can rock this’ and then the next I’m thinking ‘Oh My God I can’t pull this off’. This colour is absolutely wearable in my opinion, but I think it takes a certain type of ‘personality’ to pull this off. I’d really love to rock this one day!

And finally… TA-DA! The ‘Beauty In Lagos’ Lip Candy by My Makeup.
Although it’s been months since they launched I am still not over the fact that I have got a lipstick named after me. Any fellow makeup obsessed person will understand how INSANE that is. And I know I have thanked them a million times and even asked them ‘why????’. But I really want to say another Thank You to them and I am really really flattered by this unexpected gesture :D.
And they know me so well, it HAD to be pink 😉
