On My Lips: Craving



Hello Guys!

I can't believe everything is over now. I worked for (almost) one whole year as a volunteer at a school and today summer break begins and I'm free! The job wasn't easy and I hated it many times but now that it's over I'm also sad. I made new friends and I got to now the pupils better and better and I liked them even though they were some bunch of rude and annoying kids.

But this is not what this post is about. It's all about Craving. MAC's Craving!
I decided to do some reviews of some of my high end and my recently bought products.

This is also the first post from my new laptop! Eek! Exciting!!!



I laid eyes on this (and some other) MAC lipsticks a few months ago but I wasn't really sure what colour exactly I wanted. There are so many colours that look very similar to Craving but have another finish or another undertone maybe. I always struggle to make out colour's undertones though haha.
In the end I decided to buy Craving without really thinking about it and I don't regret it!




Colour

I usually wear very bright colours for example bright reds like Russian Red.
Craving is a kinda plummy pink, MAC describes it as a "burst of plum". It is a rather light plum tone, though, compared to Rebel. 

Finish

Its finish is Amplified. This is my first Amplified lipstick (I only own two matte MAC lipsticks). It is creamy and doesn't dry out your lips, which I love. The pigmentation is also very nice when applied.

Lasting

It doesn't last as long as matte lipsticks but it still lasts pretty long. If you exfoliate your lips well beforehand and use a good primer and lip liner it will last and since it also hydrates your lips a little it is easily reapplied and doesn't feel weird after some time. No chapped lips! YAY.


I really like the colour and the finish. This will not be my last Amplified lipstick! And I'm already looking at other MAC lippies I could buy haha. I guess I'm addicted to lipsticks...

Summer Mixtape 2.0

Hello there!

I am literally melting. It was over 30°C and tomorrow it will be too. I like this weather but only if I can go to the pool. And today I couldn't. Tomorrow either. Ughhhh. 
I think the only outfit you can really rock when it's this hot is being naked. Unfortunately I have to work tomorrow and I can't go naked hahaha.

When it is this hot there is nothing better than a good Summer Playlist, don't you think? When you're with friends and you can listen to your favourite songs everything gets even better.
I worked on a playlist, or rather a mixtape. It took me quite a while to figure out what songs I want on it, but I'm finally done! 
These are some catchy tunes from 2015 that I really like and that are fun to listen to. 
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!






What are your favourite songs this summer? Do you also have a summer mixtape/playlist? I'd love to know!
