Just before we closed January, I was cleaning out my boudoir’s “top shelf” when I realized — all of my favourite lipsticks are from the berry family.
On Instagram last 29 January:
I just found a neat excuse to go #lipstick shopping.
On Instagram last 02 February:
Partyline. Viva Glam III. Dubonnet.
Rotating these MAC reds a lot lately. What other shades should I try? I’m NC40.
For someone wearing a lot less makeup all over (derma’s orders), this presents pros and cons. Top pro would be — I can sleep all day, wake up with only 10 minutes to prep for work, pick any colour and I’m good to go because I’m 100% definite they complement my skin tone. Biggest con — apparently, I don’t have anything that’s not red (!!!).
I’ve been long postponing my hunt for the perfect pink and perfect neutral when the need presented itself just last Tuesday. I was at the Powerplant Mall wearing my usual cat eyes and MAC Perpetual Flame + MAC Partyline when I realized that my face is too red from the peeling I’m going through. In my attempt to balance the look out, I removed the red lippies and swiped on some MAC Cremesheen Gloss in Imperial Light. It was too light so I made a 911 run to THE lipstick HQ. Bet you already know where I went!
