I never wore lipstick but now I do, not everyday but frequently – to this day I am still uncovering new make up (like primer!) & make up tips to try out (like contouring!) and a while ago I came across some excellent magazine articles on lipstick & they really intrigued me to try lipstick out. Personally I love to keep my make up minimal and natural but I also love to see make up that shows bursts of colour so why not combine the two? I went to town to trifle through the shops looking for the perfect shade of lipstick to compliment my natural make up and I came across two lovely shades of pink so I thought I would share them with you all and do a mini review! 🙂
Rimmel Lipstick in 006 Pink Blush This lipstick caught my eye because I know Rimmel do some absolutely lovely lipsticks, glosses and tints. The shade is very light bright pink, when I first brought it I was worried that it would come out like a fluorescent pink but I thought I’d take the chance and actually it came out in a lovely pastel pink shade so I was happy. It glides on my lips really smoothly and feels lightweight, the only problem is you need to reapply often as it wears away a bit.
Collection 2000 Lipstick in 13 Vintage Rose My favourite at the moment! It’s a dark pink shade the name of the colour describes it perfectly – Vintage rose. If you want a darker shade of pink that isn’t too dark and compliments natural make up then this is one to try! It is applied easily and goes on my lips without any issues, it is relatively long lasting although it does come off when drinking but doesn’t when eating or at least that’s what I’ve found others may find different 🙂
Thank you for reading lovelies! Let me know if you have any lipstick suggestions as I am on the lookout for new ones, also let me know your favourites as well 🙂
I brought this about a week ago in a local beauty store because I was getting fed up of my lipstick not staying all day and I love beautiful vibrant lips!
The shade I got was in Kiss which is like a dark pinkish/natural sort of shade I guess it could be said, I had a tough time picking which one out of the collection was closest to my natural lips and it happened to be this one because my lips are naturally quite dark pink anyway.
So once I got home I excitedly tried it on and found that it was super easy to apply to my lips and wasn’t bulky or thick either like some others. Because it is shaped as if it was a pencil it makes it easy to draw the outline of your lips which is something that most girls dream about! Instead of fussing over smudges or uneven lines or application.
I also love the taste and smell of it as well, sounds pretty weird and I’m not sure if that’s a feature of the product or just me – but something that smells good and doesn’t leave a horrid taste in your mouth if it accidentally gets in there is a win by my standards.
Well anyway with long lasting durability, great easy application and beautiful shade of colours I’d rate this quite highly.
So I haven’t blogged in a few days and that’s because I have been unintentionally busy! As you all know I had a job interview in the Easter holidays which is why I had to stay up north, I passed the interview with flying colours and got hired only to finally start my first day on Wednesday and it was CRAZY! Let me fill you in…
So after searching endlessly for a job I found one and got it so I thought this was going to be the start of something great, I thought I’d love it and I would work loads happily and get lots of moneeeey! (An essential for a student) HOWEVER… it wasn’t as it seemed, my day started out rushed and I got thrown into the deep end because the store was overly busy and packed. With a smile on my face I carried on with hopes that it would get better, I had 2 hours of going through the safety and fire booklet with a manager making jokes about all the safety precautions…this didn’t bother me to much but next to me were two girls openly talking about me?! I was in disbelief, I was sat right next to them, oh well continuing the story anyway…
Putting on a brave face I continued and once the precautions and safety talk was finally over I got my uniform, had to put it on in a smelly tiny dirty toilet hobbling around on one leg trying to get my balance so I didn’t put my foot in this ‘water’ that looked suspiciously like urine on the floor. Once my uniform was on I got taken up stairs and put on the shop floor where I was given my equipment and expected to know what I was doing, I felt intimidated to say the least and I kept clock checking my whole ‘training day’ (A.K.A Basically my first shift). This and the fact most customers were angry made a horrible concoction for a first day 😦
So all in all, I left my job. I simply cannot stay where I feel out of place, I would rather work somewhere I love so that I enjoy going to work 🙂 The positive side to this story is that I got another interview next week on Tuesday for a big fashion retailer that I wanted, so I just hope that my interview goes well 🙂 – Wish me luck!
Anyway I brought some new make up bits the other day, I brought a Collection 2000 Colour Pout Lastin Lip Stain in 2 Kiss and Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in 1 Fair (Because I am rather pale) and that gives 16 hours wear! Also this week I have painted my nails in Maybelline New York Forever Strong Professional 202 Really Rosy.
I also thought it would be good if I revealed my secret make up bag utensils and essentials, I tend to go for the barely there/natural look a lot of the time and the only thing I really emphasize is my eyelashes because they are quite small…(May seem like ALOT of mascara but that’s because I need to clear out my old ones!)
