Today I am trying out a lipstick colour that I’ve been meaning to try for a while now. I watched a video where Nikki Philippi was talking about trying a purple lipstick and loving it and since then I’ve been hooked on the idea of trying one myself. I immediately went for a darker shade because I think that darker colours suit my skin tone better. The lipstick itself makes me feel so grown up for some reason and it instantly adds a drama to a look.
I usually start the day with a good cleanser and some of my Clinique Dramatically Different moisturiser. I have also started using an eye cream as well. I have a few marks and tiny scars from previous break outs that I prefer to hide with make-up. Continue reading
I bought a new lip balm today, one that I’ve seen before on Tumblr. The lip balm is called the Labello Lip Butter in the flavour Raspberry Rose. I’ve always used Labello for my lips so I trust them as a company, it also comes in a cute tin pot and smells like raspberries: YUMMY…It sort of reminds me of the Dior Creme de Rose, although to be completely honest I have never actually tried this cult lip balm for myself. Which is sad, but definitely on my list of cult beauty buys. Clearly the packaging to this is not at all special and does not in my opinion make you feel like a princess, which I quite like in beauty products and fashion accessories alike. But alas, I am suffering from horribly dry lips and need some special care after my evening lip scrub-this will have to do for the meantime. The impulse buy, got me inspired to do a a flat layout of all my favourite pink beauty items.I couldn’t put all of them in this post but the first few that came to mind made it to the shoot. Enjoy.
