Most of you may know that Mary and I are lipstick addicts and have accumulated quite a stash between us, see here http://www.kurlykichana.com/2012/07/its-obsession.html#.Vs2rgpx97IU
We always have at least 3- 4 lippies on our person at any one time....it's an obsession you guys! Today's post, I wanted to share my 5 favourite lippies which are a mix of local Kenyan brands and international.
If you guys have not heard of Pauline Cosmetics...visit their website and check out the stockists. I discovered them when I saw my cousin and bestie wearing a dark goth inspired lipstick and immediately asked to share the deets. My two favourite shades are Marvel (1) which is a dark almost black shade and Revel (4) which is a deep wine red.
These lippies are BOMB! They feel so moisturising and seem to hug your lips, additionally they last at least 6 hours before you have to reapply. They start off shiny and end up drying slightly matte. I am absolutely in love with them! They are only Kshs 800 and you can find them at Qpharm chemists and Super Cosmetics as well as other beauty stores.
Another of my favourite lippies is House of Uni Brownin which is a matte brown and is the perfect nude for dark skin women. Perfect nude to flaunt your Melanin. This shade lasts a long time and does not dry out your lips. I got mine from Ayanna James who was one of the organisers for the Nairobi Curltalk last year but you could possibly pick them up from Amadiva Salon.
Nouba Millebaci No. 7 is a bright red that POPS! If you are afraid of Red lips look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself why? Then run to the Nouba shop at Nakumatt Ukay and pick yourself a bright red. This lippie made it through my entire wedding day which was over 12 hours of happiness :-). It is about Kshs 1200 and is the best matte red lippie I have ever worn.
The final lippie is one I have shared before in this post. I love Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipsticks, they are exactly that ultra matte and last over 7 hours even with coffee drinking and eating. I got mine from @accessories_trend on Instagram.
That is only a small part of my stash and I will be sharing more in future posts if you guys are interested.
What are your favourite lippies, any local brands that we should definitely pick up? Do let us know!
