HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! Whether you're single or attached or it's complicated, it doesn't matter.. Someone out there loves you!! I know how people say that it's over commercialised, and I actually agree. Why should you be expected to show each other love on this day? Why not every day? But oh well, I will stop moaning and show my friends some love!! You guys should too! Hope you've had or are having an awesome valentine's day with friends, family, your SO, your pets, etc, doing the things you love and smiling lots :) Health and happiness are the most important things in life :)
Day 21: My favourite lip stick
For someone who used to hate wearing anything on her lips, I have to say my collection of lip products has grown quite randomly and worryingly.. because I still hardly wear lip products. I own about 12 lip sticks that just sit there until I decide to experiment with make up because I'm avoiding work >< When I do wear it out, I tend to wear the same colours because even though I like the colours I own, I'm worried what people will say/think when I wear colours so bright and unnatural haha. Like I want to buy a red lipstick but then I doubt I would ever have the guts to wear it.. I guess make up isn't about not being confident enough in your own skin that you have to put some on, but about being confident enough to wear whatever look you want. Make up haters are not correct. No one is correct, because everyone has their own opinion :) Plus, make up is an art :P
Back to the main point though, I'd say the lip stick I wear the most is E.L.F.'s Rosy Raisin. To be honest, I probably wear Rosy Tan just as much because the colours are basically the same. Rosy Tan is more pigmented, whilst Rosy Raisin is more sheer and not as matte as Rosy Tan. I wear these two the most because they match my lip colour. It helps me look more enhanced but I don't look any less natural.
My guilty favourite which I wish I had the guts to wear out though, is Rimmel's Moisture Renew in 180 Vintage Pink. It's a pinky purple colour in it's packaging, but as a swatch, it is more pink than purple.
I'll add in swatches later, once I have time to edit them so they reflect their true colours.
I also love my Revlon Colourburst in 020 Baby Pink, but I feel like its so light that it makes my teeth look yellow :/ It's also quite sheer so I'd have to reapply a lot if I wore it out.. which I find a hassle. I don't like having to bring out a mirror whilst I'm out because then everyone watches and I feel really vain -_-
My Clinique Bonus Time gift also contained a Long Last Glosswear in Kissy Fit and I am in LOVE with this colour. I thought I would never ever wear it when I saw it because it looks like a crazy, dark but bright pink in the tube, but when I put it on, I think I actually fell in love. I might go down to a Clinique counter and see if they do this shade as a lip stick.. because I'm not a big fan of lip glosses (I always feel like it looks like I just ate an oily meal but forgot to wipe my mouth, hahaha). We'll see how that goes.. I will keep you posted!
Thanks for reading :)
