Weekly Highlights #16

I know I’ve been talking a lot about lip products in the past few weeks, and I’ve been buying a lot of lip products lately, but today’s highlight is -again – a lip product.

BUT, it is probably one of the most perfect lip products I’ve had so far. Like, I am in love. It is amazing, and so pretty, and just the perfect dusty brown-y nude.

The backstory behind this is this: about two weeks ago my grandparents celebrated 65 years of marriage which is absolutely crazy and so special that we got to celebrate it with them. My middle sister was wearing this colour on her lips, and when I saw it on her I immediately was like “omg what colour is that I want it too!”. Not just because I’m the little sister that wants everything her big sisters have, but because it looked soooo good on her and I wanted to try it too. So she told me which lipstick she was wearing, and a few days later I raced to Hema to pick it up.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Hema long lasting lipstick in 20 Tender Rose. Which is a much better name than the 25 Muddy Mood from a few weeks ago (but I still love that one too!). Ah, isn’t it pretty? The formula is lovely, although I do like to wear it with a lip balm underneath for extra comfort, and it lasts a looong time. And it looks so pretty on the lips, neutral but still eye catching, it goes with EVERYTHING and is so easy to wear. I love it. And it’s only €4,50! How amazing? I love the shape of the lipstick, long and thin and kind of a small slanted oval teardrop type shape? I don’t really know how to describe it, but it makes for super easy application.
I’ll admit that I seriously had to stop myself from getting more colours, as they have some gorgeous ones, but I need to stay away from any lipstick selling stores right now because it’s getting out of hand. Even though I did declutter some a while ago. Doesn’t mean I can immediately buy 10 lipsticks again..

Anyways, if you find yourself near a Hema, just give it a try. Swatch it on you hand, swatch some other colours, pick one up. I love these lipsticks.

Thanks for stopping by ❤
