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. Do check out their blogs for awesome lipstick suggestions! I’ll be doing one lipstick every day I can (or at least on all the days I wear makeup).
I’ve had this in my bag ever since I got this sample sized Benebalm in November. It’s pretty much my replacement for my Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter; a red tinted lip balm that I use when I can’t be bothered to touch up my lipstick but don’t want my lips to look too nude. It’s nowhere nearly as pigmented, but smells lovely, and works well enough as a lip balm. I doubt I would ever buy a full-sized version on its own though (which costs SGD30). But for now it will stay in my purse/makeup bag.
Today I paired it with a bright purple eye, as it’s a lip that’s lovely with any kind of strong makeup. It’s been a while since I’ve used the Urban Decay Electric palette. I haven’t used Urban Decay Jilted before because the color is a little terrifying, but it’s a lovely shade on its own, really. I added a little Urban in the corners to darken it, and then Fresco to contour out the eye for more depth.
(Also I’m loving this hair accessory that I just got from Lovisa!)
