Honest Politician

Today I’m wearing the cream blush that I wrote a post about yesterday, I love the bare faced feeling it gives. I’m so glad I found a shade that works this well on my skintone, it’s going to be a long time favourite, I can tell already. The lipstick I’m wearing will also be reviewed soon, it’s another Lipstick Queen product that I’m very fond of. Stay tuned for that!

The eye look is really simple with some brow pomade as an eyeliner, thick black top lashes and a dab of dark red mascara on the bottom lashes.

Lipstick Queen Oxymoron Matte Gloss in Honest Politician

Lipstick Queen har en serie tunna krämfärger för kinder och läppar, dessa går under namnet Oxymoron (översatt: självmotsägelse) och namnen på nyanserna är därav förstås självmotsägelser. Här är färgen Honest Politician. Hatten av för roligaste produktnamnet någonsin. Finns att köpa på t.ex. Cow Parfymeri och NK.

Lipstick Queen has a line of thin cream colours for cheeks and lips, these are called Oxymoron (meaning: self-contradiction) and then of course the shade names are oxymorons. Here’s the colour Honest Politician. Hats off for the funniest product name ever.

The product comes in a sleek snap lid packaging, nothing excessive or overdone at all. You can see the colour straight through the clear plastic so you won’t have to open it or read the label to know what it is. I love it!

Honest Politician swatched heavily.

Formulan är tunn och “blöt” men mattas av lite på kinderna, den ser ut som naturlig hud! Lite krämig lyster men inget som blänker eller känns kladdigt. Pigmenteringen är topp utan att vara läskig att applicera och det behövs inget lager-på-lager-meck för att det ska bli tryck i färgen. Bara dutta på med fingrarna så suddas rouget enkelt ut utan kanter! Färgen Honest Politician är en rosig beige, inget skimmer och med en härlig transparens som låter huden synas igenom. Den perfekta I-woke-up-like-this-färgen för hy lik min, ljus med neutral underton. Can’t go wrong.

På läpparna har jag inte testat den men läpprodukter i dosa är om något en självmotsägelse, jag ser inga fördelar med att peta ner smutsiga fingrar i en dyr dosa och kleta mig på läpparna medan jag är på språng. Kleggiga fingrar, smuts på munnen och samma bakterier i sminket. Nä tacka vet jag vanliga stift/gloss, produkter som denna förblir rouge för mig!

 

The formula is thin and “wet” but turns a bit matter on the skin, it looks just like natural skin! A slight creamy sheen but no shine or stickiness. The pigmentation is great without it being scary to apply and you don’t need to pile on layers upon layers to get a good colour payoff. Just dab it on with your fingers and it blends out nicely without any edges! The colour Honest Politician is a rosy beige without shimmer, it has a slight translucency to it that makes the skin shine through. The perfect I-woke-up-like-this colour for complexions like mine, fair with a neutral undertone. Can’t go wrong.

I haven’t tried it on my lips but lip products in jars is a pure oxymoron in my opinion, I see no reason to dig dirty fingers into an expensive pot and smudge it on my lips while I’m on the run. Sticky fingers, dirty lips and the same bacteria in my makeup. Nah, I prefer classic sticks/glosses, products like these will stay blushes for me!

regular base

The makeup I wore to work today, just some foundation+concealer+powder and little cream bronzer. Before the blush in other words.

Purple Blaze

I’ve worn this eye pencil a lot lately and every time loads of people ask me what it is. NYX Slide-On Pencil in Purple Blaze is the answer! One lady told me how happy she was to see a colour like this because it reminded her of what she loved to wear in the eighties. So sweet!

Today I paired this bright metallic blurple (blue/purple, best word fuse ever) with apricot on my cheeks and lips. They really enhance each other beautifully!
