Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour
In the war of matte liquid lipsticks, Chanel’s Rouge Allure Ink Matte comes out on top. To be honest, it’s not your typical matte liquid lipstick. It glides on like a gloss but dries down to a smooth velvety finish. Made with plant oils, polymers, and waxes, it’s pretty moisturising and feels comfortable on your lips all day long — this isn’t one of those formulas that feels like shrink-wrap! And…..it lasts and lasts.
Makeup Setting Spray Is Not Negotiable……never, ever forget to set your makeup before going out, and a generous spritz of a setting spray is key to budgeproof makeup that doesn’t look cakey.
Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
A weightless setting spray that keeps makeup looking just-applied for up to 16 hours. Developed in an exclusive partnership with SKINDINÄVIA, this groundbreaking, clinically tested formula is suitable for all skin types and features patented Temperature Control Technology. It actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush, and concealer in place—even in hot and humid or cold and windy conditions. The result? Smoother-looking skin and vibrant makeup that lasts all day (or night) without melting, cracking, fading, or settling into fine lines.
Unlike similar products on the market that feel sticky or tight on your skin, the sprayer delivers a microfine mist that goes on so light, you’ll hardly feel it—and once you’ve applied it, you won’t even know it’s there.
