Lipstick. Red lipstick.
These are two words that are very close to my heart, as I wear red lipstick every time I leave the house.
Those of you who know me, know that my lips and nails are always red; It’s just a part of me.
I don’t like to wear makeup during the day if I don’t have to and applying a bit of M.A.C. Red always does the trick of making me look like I’m alive and awake.
Because I have blond hair, blue eyes, and am really pale, the red just seems to make all of the colors (Blond, blue, light skin) more saturated and POP!
In general, I just love lipstick and all the different shades and consistencies.
(I don’t really like lip gloss because my hair always gets stuck in it.)
In the past two days I keep seeing new images of new lipsticks that are out, and boyyyy am I excited to get my hands on one or all !
Mac Art Supplies
Speaking of my favorite lipstick…..The genius’ at MAC have come up with a NEW product, MAC Art Supply Lip Stain.
Lets break it down; Arts and crafts + Mac = GENIUS idea
That’s right, you can go out, eat, drink and be marry, followed by snogging a ‘victim on interest’ and this stain will STILL be on.
Tom Ford’s Private Blend Lip Color
Yes, Tom Ford is building his empire, and has added beauty to the roster, which will be available in the U.S. on June 1st.
(Neimans, Saks and Bergdorf will carry)
The images of his new collection, Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Color, are mind blowing as well as the packing which is kinda brilliant….” So fresh and so cleannn”.
This collection features 12 lipsticks in all different shades of nude, dramatic, and bold colors.
The only issue with these works of art, is that one lipstick will cost you 45$; The Cleu de Peu of lipsticks !
“I took the most universally flattering colors that a woman can wear, and then I reimagined them in a modern and authoritative way,” – Tom Ford to WWD
Lime Crime’s Future Candy
So we need to talk about 4 things here:
1. The girl who owns Lime Crime is named Doe Deere, and calls herself the Queen of the Unicorns. 2. The AhhhhMAZING packaging (don’t all girls just love Unicorns?) 3. The colors chosen, and 4. The pigments.
Wow, a girl after my own heart. Doe Deere, makeup artist and blogger, wasn’t able to find makeup bright enough for her, so she set out to make her own line of criminally intense and fantastic makeup. Her line is like crack to me; I need more!
Doe- a deer, a female deer
Ray- a drop of golden sun
Me- a name i call myself
Far- a long long way to run
Sew- a needle pulling thread
La- a note to follow so
Tea- a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to do oh oh oh
Sorry, I couldn’t contain myself.
I want to have a tea party with her and invite Lisa Frank to come with all of her illustrated unicorns from my childhood.
So this is pretty much the cutest lipstick packaging ever… One should just buy this lipstick just for the packaging!
The image above MAKES me want to wear blue, purple, and black lipstick. Out of all the colors possible, I think these are the best choice because the opaque/matte-ness and the pigment is shocking and intensely gorg…I want them all !
Pigment is very important in makeup, especially in eye shadows and lipsticks. One can tell just by looking that these lipsticks are very high quality and highly pigmented. (Looks like a fresh coat of paint!)
The worst is looking at pretty colored lipsticks, only to find out thats its nothing like the color they promised. These Candy Future lipsticks are screaming pigment, which we love.
