Fire Red

Todays look! Nothing on my eyes, just a strong brow and bright orange red lips that match my nails. I’m trying out the CND Vinylux nail polishes that are supposed to wear for 7 days without damage, we’ll see how it works or if I’ll get tired of it before it starts looking crappy!

Also I just found the perfect eyebrow match for my new hair, I’m layering Peach Leopard Bronzer from Too Faced on top of my old brow powders. As the hair is a bit lighter than it was before the brows stand out more with my old semi-dark colour, but I really like the lighter hair/darker brows kind of thing.

Cherry Red

I’ve been wearing this KIKO Cosmetics lipstick almost every day since it arrived. I’m loving it! It’s kind of a muted red, the name makes it sound a lot brighter than it is. A classic cool red with some kind of dirty undertone, it’s a bit vampy yet it doesn’t need a lot of work to look good. Wears for hours once applied and turns into a true rockstar stain when really worn in. It can handle a night out without touch ups, eeey!

These two looks below were worn at different times, but I’m wearing the exact same things on my face. Hello basic face look.

Lumene Raspberry Miracle Lip Sorbet “Come into Flower”

Svartvinbärssaftfärgade läppar fungerar året runt, så är det bara. De är för mig lika självklara till höstens mörka murriga färgskalor som i kontrast till vårens mjuka pasteller. Om matta dova läppstift känns för maffiga så är dessa uppvridbara läppkritor vid namn Raspberry Miracle Lip Sorbet från Lumene fantastiska, de går på som läppbalsam och lämnar ändå nämnvärd mängd färg på läpparna. Come into Flower har den där mjuka bäriga färgen som jag gillar.

Blackcurrant coloured lips work all year round, that’s just the way it is. In my opinion they’re just as perfect for the dark cozy hues of fall aswell as a contrast to the pale spring pastels. If matte, compact lipsticks feel too heavy these twist-up gloss pencils from Lumene called Raspberry Miracle Lip Sorbet are perfect, they go on like a balm and leave a nice amount of colour. Come into Flower has that soft berry shade that I like.

This lippie looks a lot darker in the tube than on the lips, so don’t be scared!

Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss “Divine”

För ett tag sedan nämnde jag “köpa saker på grund av dess namn”-syndromet, här är ännu en produkt som jag förra våren stuvade i varukorgen av precis den anledningen. Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss i färgen Divine är ett flamingorosa gloss utan glitter och med jellyaktig finish. Ett läppglans vid namn Divine (som vår störda drag queen) som är flamingorosa (som hennes största och minst lika störda film Pink Flamingos), en slump? Vägrar jag tro!

Bortsett från det faktumet, glosset känns på läpparna med sin mjuka och ändå hållbara formula. Glosset slätar ut linjer i läpparna på ett fantastiskt vis, de ser ut som lack efteråt! Doftar lätt fruktigt, lite nog för att knappt vara värt att nämna. Penseln drar kanske med sig lite för mycket produkt upp ur hylsan vilket nog blir mitt enda minus.

Finns att shoppa på Illamasquas webshop.

 

A while ago I talked about the “buy things because of its name” phenomenon, here’s another product that I got last spring for that reason. Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in Divine is a flamingo pink jelly-like gloss without shimmer. A lipgloss called Divine (the freaky drag queen) which is flamingo pink (her biggest, freaiest movie Pink Flamingos), coincidence? I think not!

Apart from that fact, the gloss wears incredibly well with its smooth and yet longwearing formula. This gloss smooths out lines in the lips beautifully, it leaves them looking lacquered! Smells faintly fruity, barely worth mentioning. The brush applicator gets loaded with a tad too much product when taken out of the tube which might be my only minus.

Available at the Illamasqua webshop.
