OH HO HO BOY THIS IS MY FORTE. Also it totally depends on what you consider or what you mean by cute SOOO I’ll just suggest all the lipstick packaging that I personally like and find cute - whether it be ‘kawaii’, ‘elegant’, or ‘punk’ kinds of cute. I’ll also be suggesting lipsticks of all types and formulas, not just in bullet form, and at any price range
Beauty Bakerie Lip Whips/Liquid Lipsticks ( x // x ) [same packaging for both formulas but the different formula colors peering through the tube give the packaging different looks if you know what i mean]
Yves Saint Laurent Lipsticks ( x // x // x ) [I saw the first one irl at Sephora and I just died a lil inside]
Christian Louboutin Lipsticks & Lacquer ( x // x // x // x )
Besame Cosmetics Lipstick ( x ) [simple but cute bullet design]
Mellow Cosmetics Lipsticks ( x ) [another very simple one i just like the matte soft white look it has???]
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in ‘Trouble Maker’ ( x ) [I think that packaging is exclusive to that shade]
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks ( x // x ) [idk what it is but the packaging is so cute to me esp in person ESPECIALLY the limited edition Candy Cane packaging. it’s a pretty color and formula]
MILK Cosmetics Lip Products ( x // x ) [they’re supposed to look like highlighters and markers it’s so tacky i love it]
Sephora x Pantone 2016 Color of the Year Lipsticks ( x ) [they’re sold out from sephora so I can’t give a link to buy unless you wanna go eBay and Amazon where they’re more expensive]
Winky Lux Lip Velour Lipstick ( x ) [they look like white and gold pills ahh]
Sugarpill Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks + Bullet Lipsticks ( x ) [MOST IMPORTANTLY the bullet lipstick okay they look like cute lil pills and ahhhhhhhh gimme i need. their liquid lipstick in the shade Trinket used to have special really adorable artwork packaging when first released but not anymore]
Lime Crime Lip Products ( x // x // x ) [Diamond Crusher is actually just a lip topper but it’s still cute tho. Controversies aside, their Unicorn packaging was one of the first eye catching packaging in the indie market back in the day so I gotta point them out. They also have a Melanie Martinez collab lipstick bullet “Cry Baby” design, but that was limited edition and I haven’t heard if they’ll ever be back in stock again]
Baby Bat Beauty Metallic Lip Cream ( x ) [I like how different the bejeweled top is, as I personally haven’t seen that on other products. I also have a review for their lip creams here if u wanna check it out]
Annnnnnd that’s all I can come up with at the moment. You definitely wanna be hovering the Japanese and Korean cosmetics market for some really cute packaging, but also don’t forget to look into the indie market in general because indie companies have also been coming out with cute packaging!!!
✎a/n:this is dedicated to my cinnamon stick, lil chan
stan anon, who had a not so very good week :(( as well as the rainy
weather which set the mood for me writin’ this. feel better my lov!!
word count: 948

Chan was not
the most pleased person when he watched you enter the coffee shop. The plastic
sheen of your rain coat was scattered with droplets freshly spurned from the
sky, your head hung low and hair a dampened mess. He noticed a few tendrils
curling from underneath your hood, sticking to your cheeks and attaching to
your lips. You collapsed at a table near the window, where liquid bullets were
still bouncing off the glass.
He readied his voice to call out to you but immediately halted himself
when you uncovered your usual ringed notebook and textbook thickened with a
thousand pages. They slapped against the table harshly and Chan felt his brows
automatically furrow when you heaved a frustrated sigh and carded your fingers
through the countless notes. You were studying, again, for the fifth time that week.
this is kind of random but what kind of lipstick do you think magnus likes best? like bullet or liquid and matte, satin, creme, or gloss?
mmm magnus doesn’t really seem to wear lip color most of the time, though there are a few episodes where you can spot a shine on his lips. so i think he favors probably very subtle glosses and very light colors, if he wears anything at all. most of his makeup does seem to be concentrated on his eyes – he really likes that taupe smoky eye for his regular look – although in 1x12 he had that really awesome contour, too, and occasionally you can spot a subtle highlight on his cheekbones.
i’ve always found it odd when people give him really bright red lipstick or something as if it’s something he does all the time, like he’s never worn anything like that in canon. but light neutral glosses we’ve seen in canon on a couple of occasions so i think that’s what he would like best.
Summary: Just when you think your new life was working out great, a dead
body turns up and shakes the foundation. You have to drop everything to save
those you care about, but what if it’s you that is the target once again?
Either way, this isn’t a place for a hero.
Shows: NCIS (Season 5 - 2007 to 2008), CSI NY (Season 4 - 2007 to 2008)

Warnings: Can we
just have a warning that covers everything including spoilers?
want to give a shout out to @spaceemonkeyyxd for helping me get this started. I
had writers block for the longest time on this story. Also this is my first
time writing CSI NY and NCIS, so be kind lol
New York City, was not exactly where you thought you would end up in
your life. At first you thought that you would always be a psychologist in the
Marines. However, as time went on you ended up joining NCIS, a Special Agent.
Your skills in psychology
came in handy as you mainly built profiles to help catch the murder or
did analysists of interrogations. After years of working as part of Special
Agent Jethro Gibbs’ team, you ended up with a special assignment.
Rhett pauses with his hand on the light switch. He glances back at Shepherd, cocooned snugly in the bed covers.
“Want me to read you another book?” Rhett asks.
Shepherd frowns, shaking his head. “I have a question. You love me and Locke, right?”
Shepherd has always asked questions that make Rhett pause, more so now that they’ve moved to California and he’s become curious about his new environment. Love has been the latest concept to pique the four-year-old’s curiosity.
“Of course I love you guys, Shep.”
“Does Link love us, too?”
“What?” The question catches Rhett off-guard. He returns to his son’s bed, sitting at the edge of his cocoon of blankets. Shepherd looks up at him expectantly.
“Well, does he?”
It’s not something that Rhett’s ever really thought much about. He’s always taken it for granted, that they both care for each other’s families. He remembers Link’s first time cradling a newborn Shepherd, and being impressed with how steady his usually shaky friend had been. Link had been a father first; he always seemed to know how to handle babies.
“He does love you guys,” Rhett tells him. “But if you keep teaching Lando how to do cartwheels on the couch, he might change his mind.” He pokes Shepherd in the tummy, making him squirm and giggle.
“So if you died or left Mom or something, would Link become my new dad?”
Rhett can’t help the chuckle that escapes him. Shepherd is still frowning. “No, he wouldn’t. He would still be a good friend, though.”
Shepherd seems satisfied by that answer. “Okay.”
“You don’t need to worry about me ever leaving Mom, you know why?”
“Because you love her!” Shepherd says triumphantly.
Rhett almost gets up again, but Shepherd holds him in place with another question. “Do you love Link?”
Maybe it’s because it’s late and Rhett’s exhausted from a long day of working and filming, but he finds himself suppressing a sudden swell of emotion. He nods. “Yeah.”
“Good.” His son grins broadly. “I was just wondering because he’s kinda like another dad already.”
Rhett grins. “Who’s a better dad, though?”
“Mmm.” Shepherd considers this, eyes narrowing. He points at Rhett’s face. “You are. He doesn’t like it when Lando and me collect worms.”
“Good to know.” Rhett ruffles his son’s blond hair until Shepherd tries to bite his hands. “Now do you have any more questions, or are you going to sleep?”
“Sleep.” Shepherd shuts his eyes quickly.
Just as Rhett flips the light switch off, he speaks again.
black wolf finally came to a stop, panting heavily and shaking with exhaustion
from the sprint. He had crossed miles of the forest’s breadth as if it were
endless. Now, the old familiar cabin was in sight and he approached it tiredly.
