This series was inspired by the lovelies Juvy from plump cheeks, Rae from Scatterbraintures and Elaine from Flabs Rule. They started the new year with the #20daylipstickchallenge. I need to get out of my lipstick rut (been repeating pretty much the same lipsticks) and aim to be blogging more, so I thought I’d hope on the bandwagon (Hope Juvy, Rae, and Elaine don’t mind!) I’ll be doing one lipstick every day I can (or at least on all the days I wear makeup).
Such a simple unassuming tube. But the BEAUTY that lives within…
Day 4! It’s time for ‘Lipstick You’d Wear On A Date’. I debated for a long long time for this one. You’d think I’ll go with a red or purple, something dramatic for date night makeup, but I had actually mentally shortlisted a list of lighter colors, like Revlon Elusive (a matte pink) and Revlon Sultry (matte plum). It’s probably because I’m really really lazy. Date makeup for me needs to be fuss-free (ie. I won’t really bother touching anything up) and something that doesn’t transfer easily. If it does transfer, please let it not leave an obvious stain, haha.
was the first lip tar I bought, which I promptly proceeded to fall in love with. (I seem to be using this phrase a lot, is there such a thing as a makeup whore/player? I would probably be guilty of this, but there are just all these wonderful products fighting for my attention.) I’ve always felt it an unusual color, not quite coral, not quite peach, not quite I’m actually quite happy with the overall look, as it’s exactly what I’d wear on a date; something softly sweet and pretty without going into the saccharine category. I pulled out the Naked 3 palette to do a hazy romantic smoky eye, and a coral blush on the cheeks. I skipped the contouring and dabbed just a bit of highlighter on, so I got a fresh faced flush.
