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.

Cirque “Luminous Owl”

Nästa lack ur Cirques Heritage-kollektion! Luminous Owl är en total mitt-emellan-färg, på pressbilderna är den mer korallig men i verkligheten något slags mörk nude med rosakorallig underton? Jag var osäker på den innan jag hade burit den, men väl på naglarna så är den väldigt smickrande mot i alla fall min hudton! Den holografiska effekten är mjuk, i stort sett osynlig i annat ljus än sol eller stark lampa. Men jag gillar att den är lite nedtonad, den känns naturell och ljuv!

Kollektionen kommer ut i butik den 10e april, kika på Cirques stockist-lista så ser en hög länder och webshopar att handla från.

 

Next Cirque Heritage collection polish! Luminous Owl is a total inbetween colour, in the product pictures it looks more coral but in real life it’s some kind of dark nude with a pinky coral hue? I was unsure about it before wearing it, but once applied it flatters atleast my skintone very well! The holographic effect is soft, practically invisible unless you’re in bright sun or under a lamp. But I like the fact that it’s toned down, it feels natural and lovely!

The collection is available at the 10th of April, check the Cirque stockist list to see countries and webshops to buy from.

Crows Toes “Shoot The Butterfly”

I’ve blogged about it earlier and here it is again. Shoot The Butterfly from Crows Toes, two coats over a black cream. It’s a cloudy black base with micro glitter in silver and white and big hex glitters that shift between red, orange and gold. So beautiful!

Available at Llarowe.

YouTube Tip: Khloé Kardashian smokey eyes + dark lips

You can’t wear dark eyes with dark lips? Well, we all know that’s a lie.

Classic Rose

Todays makeup was quick and easy, I wanted  to wear something very neutral yet 1960′s inspired. framed eyes with big lashes (could I ever live without this mascara?), a plain cheek and neutral creamy lips. The lipstick is Classic Rose from KIKO Cosmetics which I showed you yesterday, it’s the perfect MLBB (my lips but better) shade on me!
