Hi everyone! I’ve been wanting to do this post yesterday but the lighting was so poor because the weather was a bit gloomy here in Jozi yesterday. So instead of taking photos and putting this up, I took yesterday off. I won’t be blogging tomorrow because I’m getting admitted at the Pretoria High Court! Eeeeeek! I’m so nervous because I’ve had some troubles with the cession of my articles etc. I’ll be keeping you updated on Snapchat 🙂 So follow me.
If you follow me on social media, I’m sure you’ve noticed a lippie craze because I hardly wear lipstick and lipgloss now because I’m so forgetful and sometimes just lazy to maintain it. Call it the Kylie Jenner lip craze or whatever you want, I discovered my (recent) favourite shade when I went to MAC over the weekend to swap my back-to-MAC containers for a lipstick. Plus I couldn’t resist and bought 3 lipliners to satisfy the nude but not so nude lip craze. I also picked up the Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist by MAC. It’s similar to the Fix+ except it is more moisturising and has extra vitamins and minerals to help dry skin. It’s a little bit more expensive (R300 as opposed to the R235) than the Fix+ but I think if it really does what it says then it’s well worth it, considering that Winter is here (that goes out to all your GOT fans :)) It may look like it has gold specks in the mist but it’s actually just the bottle.
So I bought 3 lip pencils in Soar (it’s highly raved about on Youtube), Whirl and Absolutely It. They’re all similar but quite different, it depends how you wear it and I feel that it all goes well with the Satin Lipstick in Amorous.
Excuse my dry patches of skin, I’m still trying to fix that. I’m wearing the Absolutely It liner with the Amorous lipstick in the photo above. The colour looks a lot more pink than it actually is in real life. In a different lighting, here is what the lipstick looks like in the second photo above.
In the above photo I’m wearing Whirl with the Amorous lipstick. As you can see, the Whirl is slightly darker and has a slight purple tinge to it.
In the above photo I’m wearing Soar with the Amorous lipstick, the Soar is more nude and has a slight pink tinge to it.
I also wanted to purchase Cyberwald which is a dark purple lipliner by MAC but they didn’t have it in stock at the time. Let me know which is your favourite? I feel like the lip colours look a lot more pink in the photos when in fact it is a bit more nude, must be the lighting. Hope you enjoyed this post!
