NYX Lippies- Lip Lingerie, Butter Gloss, Soft Matte Lip Creams and Liners

Hey everyone! Hope you're all doing well! As you probably know NYX lip products are super popular right now so I wanted to show you all of mine! Some are new and some I've had for a little while. Now I just wanna say yes I do try to live a natural lifestyle overall, but it's so hard to find natural lip products that work as well, and find colors I like. So NYX is my cheat brand, and I'm more okay with using non natural makeup than skincare since it's not gonna be on my face for as long. 

Now that that's out of the way here are my NYX lip products! 
NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams- Istanbul, Addis Ababa, Stockholm. 
I love these! I'm really into the whole matte lip thing right now and these sit very comfortably! Just be sure to let them dry first before rubbing your lips together at all or they'll get a little funky. Also you should exfoliate and moisturizer lips before applying anything matte! You can remove the lip balm if you want it to appear matte and last as long as it can. 
Butter Goss- Eclair, Angel Food Cake.
Lipstick- 565. 
Eclair isn't really my color since it's a cool tone but it works for layering well! Angel Food Cake is a really pretty mauve color! I love the smooth texture of these, and even the lipstick is comfortable in my lips!
NYX Lip Lingerie- Lace Detial. 
This is one of the new liquid matte lipsticks, These are really hard to find right now, I had to go to 3 different places just to find them! This line is all nude colors and plenty of them, so every skin tone should find one for them!  There are a few more colors I wanna pick up when I can find them. I think these are a great dupe for the Kylie Jenner lip kits and a fraction of the price! Now the texture is different than the matte lip cream because this is thicker and although it's also matte it does stay kind if tacky for a little while, it feels the slightest bit heavy on the lips but I don't really mind that! They stay on for a while too! And are kiss proof, which is perfect since my boyfriend hates getting lipgloss on his lips! ;) 
Here I'm wearing Lace Detial with the Mauve lip liner under it, which makes it a bit more grayish but still really pretty! 

And speaking of Lip Liners here is Peekaboo and Mauve! (Left to right) these too of course are matte! Great alone it under something else! 

And that's all I've got for now but I can't wait to try more!! Any recommendations?

DIY Deodorant Fail.

Hello lovelies! Hope you're all doing well! 
So the other week I tried a couple of different deodorant recipes, and they started out well but then kinda stopped working, I'll explain more shortly. 

Now I love how this turned out, I used lemongrass and rosemary and it smelled lovely! Now this may be a little tmi but we all sweat so let's not make it taboo, I typically don't even use deodorant because even though I sweat I don't actually smell much. So for the first couple of days it worked well and I still smelled very fresh at the end of the day.. But then I started working out, and when I would use this is made me smell bad. I guess it didn't work with my sweat well. So I feel like this is fine when just chilling and not doing much, but if you wanna work out (and you should stay active when you can), better not use this. 

Now this one still doesn't work great for me but it does work for my sister! I've tried a few natural deodorant brands and once again I smell worse at the end of the day. That might be one of those things I can't find a natural version of , I'm currently using what my boyfriend uses- Degree Men, it's clear so there's no aluminum in it and there's actually not many ingredients, so I don't feel so bad using it. Why men's? #1 it was half the price of the women's line, you get more for the money and they didn't have any clear for women. Plus it doesn't sucks melting like my boyfriend! ;)

If I try out anymore I'll totally post about how it goes! Look out for a toothpaste post coming soon! :)
