My 5 favourite daily lipsticks under RM30!

Hi! As a student, of course I'd like to find affordable makeups, especially lipsticks! So here are my five favourite daily lipsticks, under RM30!

1) Essence Long Lasting Lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty (RM13.90)

I've blogged about it here. The colour is very natural to the lips, not too pink, not too nude. The finishing is creamy tapi takdelah sampai melekit and really moisturizing, however it is not really pigmented so kena apply dua tiga lapis, but I looooove the colour! The packaging is also sturdy. Tak nampak murah!

Looks a bit glossy, because it is creamy. You can get it at any Watsons that carries Essence. I bought mine at Watsons Jusco Cheras Selatan for only RM13.65 (sebab diskaun hehehe), Watsons je tau, Guardian takde.

2) NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Tea Rose (RM19)

Because it is also creamy, it is very moisturizing. Its a bit pinkish to compare with the Essence's one, but it still looks natural for daily use. I don't really like the smell, but it doesn't lingers after you apply it, so okay lah.

You can get it at Sephora (rasanya ada lagi, sebab dah lama dah beli, among my first ever lipstick hehehe)

3) Catrice's Ultimate Colour Lipstick in 020 Maroon (RM21.90)
I love the packaging, rasa mahal and penutup dia ketat, susah nak terbuka bila campak dalam bag. It is pigmented, beautiful shade, and the smell is sooo nice, however because it is creamy, it bleeds out of the lips, senang terkeluar dari landasan bibir haha so, wearing lip liner is a must.

The colour is very very natural for my lips. You can get it at any Guardian that carries Catrice. I got mine at One Utama for only RM19++ sebab diskaun hehe. Guardian je tau, Watsons takde.

4) Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Bare It All. (RM24)
I have this love-hate relationship with this lipstick. I hate the packaging, bila pegang memang rasa murah, penutup dia ya rabbi senang terbuka, that is why there are stains on the cap, habis kotor my makeup bag. However, the finishing is matte, so pigmented, so beautiful, and so cheap. I really love how the lipstick appears on my lips. But the packaging, and the smell, urghhh!

This lipstick is also the dupe for MAC Velvet Teddy. almost the same shade, but of course, way cheaper. If you don't want to fork out RM74 for MAC Velvet Teddy, buy this one! I bought mine from twitter for only RM18 hehe but you can get it at SaSa for around RM24. It used to be RM22.90 tapi dah naik harga. Or you can find them online for only around RM16-RM18. Yes.

5) NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm (RM29)
I think everyone owns at least one NYX SMLC. My favourite is Stockholm. I love the color, natural on my lips, not too nude, not too pink, it's like soft peach. It's creamy, however it gives matte finishing on your lips. I love the smell, it's like vanilla!

I love the finishing of this lipstick. You can get it at Sephora. However, the lipstick is always out of stock at Sephora. Dah nak habis dah, cepatlah restock please Sephora!

Macam biasa, pinjam tangan suami to do the swatches. From left, NYX SMLC in Stokholm, Wet N Wild in Bare It All, Catrice in Maroon, NYX in Tea Rose, Essence in Natural Beauty.

So, that's all. I'm all natural lipstick kind of girl. That is why semua lipstick nak dekat sama je warna hahaha. 

Thanks for reading!
