SO, as you can see, I am loving make up at the moment. It’s having a real moment for me, no clothes are really springing out to me, so all my dosh is going on make up. I recently bought three new lippies to play with, and I definitely love them enough to write about. NOTE: my painstaking effort to try and look exactly the same in every photo. Better appreciate.
1 – Kate Moss Rimmel 08.
Kate Moss is literally the master of all trades. The Kate Moss lipsticks are some of my favourites after MAC, they’re really pigmented and I really love the Matte ones. This is a Matte lippy, and is a nude colour, which is my new favourite shade. It’s a great dupe if you’re trying to get the Kylie Jenner look without spending too much money, and works just as well. Definitely recommend, also, looks FAB with a lipliner.
2 – MAC Pink Plaid.
This was a new purchase as I was kindly given a MAC voucher recently. I don’t actually own a pretty little pink lippy, which is odd as it’s somewhat of a staple in a make up bag. Pink plaid is a matte, light pink lipstick which glides nicely onto your lips, unlike the somewhat rigid Ruby Woo. The finish is really pretty, strong colour without being overwhelming, however I recommend putting some lip primer on beforehand to make sure your lips are in perfect lippy condition. I love this colour, it’s really girly and feminine, perfect for everyday use.
3 – MAC Media.
It’s getting d r a m a t I c up in here. Mac Media looks really scary in the tube, my boyfriend thought it was black and that I’d lost my mind. But, I am in love with it. I think it’s important to branch out the norm and comfort zone with lipsticks, so you can spice up a drab outfit or feel a little bit sassier than normal. I love the deep plum colour of Media, and think that if teamed with a Burgundy lip liner it could look super strong on a night out. My only criticism is that it is a bit shiny, I’m not a huge fan of the shine, but think dabbed down it can be OK. Photography didn’t do it justice, damn my macbook.
SO I hope this helped anyone who has money burning a lipstick sized hole in their pocket. Also a massive apology for my awful photography, my camera was totally ruined in the house fire so I am saving my pennies for a new lense. J
Until next time xo
