The hunt was on for a perfect creamy beige lipstick, after being inspired by my friend and fellow blogger at http://naturaltaketwo.wordpress.com/ when she posted this photo:
I’d never been able to find a great color that would work on me because most seemed to just look ashy and being the twin of crackhead Tyrone Biggums was NOT a goal of mine.
Mac was my first stop because I’d seen many beautiful looking colors on their website for lipsticks that may be able to fit the bill. Problem was, I couldn’t just go ordering any ole thing off of the website without trying it on, expecting to NOT have the same problem of ashy looking lips that I’d been previously having. Why is it that things in person never look like they do in photos/online? Colors that I’d written down the names of turned out to be the totally wrong choice once I was at the Mac counter, so it’s certainly a good thing that I tried it on first instead of blindly ordering and hoping!
Here’s photos with it on:
It’s rich and luscious on the lips, feels good because it’s a part of their lustre line. The lipglass has a good shine, which I can appreciate. What I really love is that because it’s part of the Viva Glam line, then the full proceeds go to Aids research/support via the http://www.macaidsfund.org/ !!! Giving back and getting glam, win win!
The rest of the makeup is my Big Girl Cosmetic’s dual foundation compact in #45 , Cover Girl Lash Blast for the mascara, Revlon brow enhancer for the eyebrows (loooooving this stuff! it makes perfectly filled in, neat eyebrows a reality), and Jordana Easy liner in seagreen on the lower lash line.
