SUMMER LIPS.....


So I'm very excited for summer and I can't wait for it to come, but while I'm waiting impatiently I thought I'll share with you some of my favourite Spring/Summer lipsticks. 

Lipsticks are my favourite part of my make-up, I love to keep my whole make-up natural and let the attention be all on my lips. The way I see it........You can never have too many Lipsticks!!

Hope you like this and if there's other lipsticks you think I should try let me know in the comments. :D


S W A H I L I

Siku za jua zina karibia na mimi mwezenu siwezi tena ku vumilia tena hata kidogo. Kwaivo kuji tarisha mwenye nime chagua baadhi ya rangi zangu za mdomo ambazo napenda kuvaa sana wakati wa summer.

Rangi za mdomo ni kipambo kimoja ambaya napenda kwenye vipambo vyote. Niki chitia make-up napenda sana kufanya uso wangu simple na rangi zote ziwe kwenye mdomo......na nnavo ona mie mwanamke hawezi kua ana lipstick nyingi!

Natumai kua mutaipenda post hiyi nakama una rangi ya mdomo ambayo unaipenda sana, miandikie chini hapo ili namie nijaribu.







MAC ~ All fired up

Buying pink lipsticks, I have always straggled to find one that actually looks pink on me. this lipstick is perfect, when I wear it you can tell I am wearing a pink lipstick and it's matte so that's a bonus because I love my mattes. The only downside I guess is that it does come off really fast through-out the day and have to keep re-applying. (which is something I wasn't expecting from a mac lipstick)


Kila niki nunua rangi ya mdoma ya pink nakua napata shida kupata rangi amabayo ina onekana kwenye mdomo, lakin rangi hiyi nime ipenda sana kwa sababu niki jitia unaona asa kwamba nime jitia rangi ya pink. Na nimeipenda zaidi hiyi kwa sababu sio lipstick yaku shine. Kitu kimoja tu ambacho sija penda kuhusu hiyi rangi ni kwamba ina toka kila wakati, sija tumai kuwa itakua hivi kwasa babu ni MAC.





MAC ~ Brave

I love this lipstick.......nude with a hint of pink it's the shade for me and what makes it 10 times better is that it's long lasting. I only put on this baby once and I'm good to go the whole day. 


Naipenda sana rangi hiyi, iko rangi moja na mdomo wangi kwaivo naweza kuivaa na look yoyote ntakayo jipamba. Na sababu nyengine niliyo ipendea sana lipstick hiyi ni kua ukisha itia mara moja haitoki tena siku nzima.




MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer Criminal: 


"A shocking pink" this baby is hard not to notice when worn! It's bright, long lasting and only for £3.00.....worth every penny. The downside to this is that it dries really fast when putting it on and gets really tacky and becomes hard to blend. But what I do is put a little bit of Vaseline on it and it's perfect.

Rangi hiyi ukijitia ina onekana ukitokeza tu. Ina ngy'ra, ukitia haitoki siku nzima na katika yote ayo nili nunua kwa £3.00 tu!!! Lakini kitu ambacho nilipata shida na lipstick hiyi ni kwamba ukijipaka ina kauka haraka mpaka unakua huwezi kui blend vizuri na ina anza kunyata nyata. Lakin nimepata ufumbuzi mzuri, ukijitia Vaseline kidogo tu inakua nzuri.




Avon Ultra Colour Absolute Lipstick ~ Smooth Plum

I can honestly say this is my favourite out of all these. It's an amazing colour, long lasting and the very best thing about it is that it's PERFECT for the summer time because it has Collagen, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and SPF meaning it's deeply moisturising and protects your lips even after you've taken it off.



Katika rangi zote hizo naweza kusema kwamba hiyi ndio rangi nnayo ipenda zaidi ya zote. Inadumu mda mrefu na iko nzuri sana kwa siku za jua kwa sababu  ina Collagen, vitamini E, vitamini C na SPF hizi zina maanisha kwamba ina moisturise mdomo wako na kuulinda hata baada ya kujitoa lipstick. 



Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm ~ Shamless

This is a lovely lip crayon, it goes on really smooth and soft. It's amazing that it has a matt finish but does not dry out at all. And the colour is beautiful, I call it my "darker the berry the sweeter the juice" lipstick. :D 



 Rangi ya mdomo hiyi naipenda sana, Ina pakika vizuri na kilaini. Na uzuri zaidi ni kwamba ina finish ya ukavu lakin hai kaushi mdomo hata kidogo. Na rangi yake masha allah naipenda sana!!.
