Lipstick Diaries: Colored Raine -- Cherry Blossom, Mary, Oh la la, & Roulette

Hey Chicas, another make up post here--whoop! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I am obsessed with liquid lipsticks, and that I recently added some gorgeous new shades to my collection. 

These new shades are from Coloured Raine Cosmetics, and of all the liquid lipsticks I own, this brand, hands down is the best! I have noticed that other brands tend to be inconsistent with their formula, thus some shades apply better/worse than the others. With Coloured Raine, there is no guess work, as the formula is consistent through all the shades. I won’t bother with an in-depth review as I have featured this brand here and here.

Cherry Blossom: This lip color is the BOMB! I call it the "baddest red lipstick that ever liveth". I will never tire of this fiery red hot color!

Mary: This is my absolute favorite. It has a subtle shimmery metallic look that makes it stand out from a typical berry colored lipstick. I absolutely heart it, and it's fast becoming my everyday lippie

Oh la la: This actually is my least favorite of the whole bunch. Undoubtedly, it's a great color, but it's very similar to other shades I own. It's kind of similar to Berri Raine (see here)

Roulette: This was one shade I was really looking forward to as there was so much hype about it on social media.  It's a pretty decent vampy shade, and I will definitely rock it, but I wasn't too  wowed by it

Have you guys tried lippies from Coloured Raine? What do you think? I'd love to hear from you, so please leave your comment below.


  1. Great review!!!! I love CR lipsticks and I have about 12 colors now...I'm glad I'm not the only one that was unimpressed by roulette! I have been debating Ooh Lala I'm glad to hear your thoughts.....and Mary is def one of my faves!!! I agree Cherry Blossom is the BEST red that ever was!!! Do you have Bachelorette? I'm debating that as my next purchase.

    1. Wow at you owning 12! No, I do not have Bachelorette, as I think it's similar to "Tulle" from Colour Pop. You can look up my review on Tulle by clicking the make up tab above. It should be the seventh post down.

  2. lovely lipys

  3. Love Ooh Lala and Roulette. All the colours are gorgeous on you.

  4. I love your swatch posts, I am getting cherry blossom for sure and maybe roulette.

  5. Cherry Blossom really looks the BOMB. I'm loving the red shade and Ooh la la is fab too!

  6. Oh yes, it's a great color... perfect on your lips!!!!
    Kisses, Paola.

  18. Hi,

    How are you?

    Ah! Cherry Blossom is calling my name loud and clear. I am a red lippy lover especially vibrant jewel shades. I love this hue. It's my favourite of the lot.

    I've never used liquid lip colour before as I'm worry about not getting the application right, your review was really helpful.

    Thank you so much. :-)

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?

Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
