Day 1 of my NO NUDE LIPS week challenge!
I also need to complete this before next week - I have an interview within my department for another position and screaming hot pink lips is not quite the look I'm going for!
I eased into color with this poppy pink shade:
MAC Cremesheen, Speak Louder
It's how I dip my toe into the pool of color without doing a cannonball.
Although it's not retina burning bright for the office, I still prefer to keep my eyes soft and put the focus on my lips. With a pink lip, I love a pink blush.
Eyes: MAC Woodwinked on lid/L'Oreal Smooth Latte (review coming soon) in the crease/UD Foxy on browbone/UD 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Smog/Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara
Blush: Chanel Joues Contraste #67 Rose Tourbillon
I forgot to mention that to keep the color from moving outside my natural lip line, I paired this with MAC Soar (mid-tone pinkish brown). This is an easy color to wear. When it fades it's not a scary, patchy stain. Also, along with the lustre finish, the cremesheen is my next favorite - it has nice slip and remains comfortable on my sensitive lips when the color sets.
I have a feeling that my lips might get progressively brighter as the week goes on...we shall see! But I think it's safe to say I'm off to a good start
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick, Speak Louder is a permanent color and retails for $14.50/USD. It's sold at fine department stores that carry the MAC line, MAC free standing stores, as well as online.
