Who says people with thick lips can’t wear bright colours?
(Meh, but I didn’t notice it was looking slightly blotchy before I ran for class. Still a gorgeous colour.)
MAC Madly Personal pigment.
It’s a matte pink, that can look either like a pale baby pink or a fuchsia, depending on how much product you pack on or how much you decide to blend it out.
How it looks in the bottle.It can look a little scary, but it’s actually a really wearable shade of pink. I can see it looking good on both warm and cool skin tones.
MAC Bronze. It’s a brown with a frosty golden sheen.
The powders swatched on my arm. See how sheer the pink can get if you blend it out?
I packed lots of colour on the lids.
Applied the pigment over the lips, and MAC Bronze at the outer V of the eye. I didn’t use either a damp brush or a primer, and you can still get a really strong colour.

Lipgloss in the morning.
I think I just might be able to achieve this kind of intensity with the pigment, if I applied the pigment damp and over a primer.
