#20daylipstickchallenge: Day 7

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 hop 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).

Day 7 Winter color – Lime Crime Wicked Velvetine 
I know Singapore doesn’t have winter, but when the rainy season comes around I like pulling out my moodier lipsticks; plums, berries, deep reds, dusky pinks.

Lime Crime Wicked Velvetine is then easily my favourite winter lipstick. I’ve been frustrated for years that I never am able to find a deep dark bloody red (everything I have looks really bright, maybe it’s my skin) and when I saw swatches of Wicked online I just had to get it.

I love that you can see the copper strands  in the braid over here.

Today I paired this with really simple makeup and the braids I wore on Saturday, keeping the lips the focal point. (I have class, trying to not be too distracting.) Lately  I’ve been into a really simplified 70s kind of lash; I hold the mascara wand vertically and dab at the lower lashline to get the clumpy lash effect. In retrospect, I think I should have used a matte brown like MAC Groundwork on the lids instead of the Becca highlighters to get a dreamier effect. What do you think?

Oh, and here’s one more reason to love Wicked. This is a quick selfie taken just over nine hours after initial application, with no touch ups. It’s a little blotchy, but still going strong.
