Sarah Made Me Do It!!!
We've all got our demons that force you to make choices that you never thought you would. Mine is a petite white haired gremlin called Sarah. You all know her! How could you not? She's pretty alright. So since meeting Sarah in June last year, I am a lot poorer but richer in bold outrageous makeup that I hardly ever wear. To give myself a bit of credit though, I'm getting a bit more adventurous. Today I'm going to talk you through 4 lipsticks that Sarah has put in my basket for me, bless her!
First up we have Limecrime Chinchilla. I absolutely love this one! I never in a million years thought that I would wear this, but I am obsessed. It's surprisingly wearable for a grey toned lavender lipstick. It's a really nice creamy formula thats an absolute breeze to apply. The pigmentation is ridiculously impressive, it's this opaque within one swipe. I like to wear it with a cool toned smokey eye and a tonne of bronzer, which stops me from looking like a complete ghost!
Next we have Limecrime Velvetine in Salem. It's coming up slightly more red in the photo below but this is a gorgeous matte brown liquid lipstick. Limecrime describe it as touch-proof, transfer-proof, long-wearing and utterly addictive! And I have to agree, it is an incredible formula. It is probably the longest lasting lip product that I have in my collection, The doe foot applicator makes it really easy to apply and really convenient for any top ups on the go. Wicked is also a gorgeous shade if red is more your kinda thing.
Of course there has to be a Mac lipstick in here somewhere. I think Sarah has more Mac lipsticks than anyone I've ever know. Although I reckon Stacey is up there too! This is the shade Smoked Purple and JESUS CHRIST I love it. It's a deep, dark purple shade that really compliments every skin tone. The matte formula makes it really long lasting and easy to wear, no one wants a glossy dark lipstick, unless you want it halfway across your face that is. An absolute staple for Autumn/Winter (and Spring/Summer!).
Finally we have the wild one, Illamasqua Disciple. Who buys a dark navy lipstick? Obviously the answer is me when under the influence of Sarah. It's an absolute b*tch to apply, purely because it's SO matte. I've found that if I pop on the tiniest bit of lip balm first, it's glides on a little easier and I get a more even colour. I actually like the way this looks against my pale skin, I just think sometimes I'm just not cool enough for it. I'm a bit of a Grandma. I am still yet to venture out of my house wearing this, but it'll happen one day soon. Maybe soon, maybe never.
Other than forcing me to buy all of this face paint, I'm so glad to have met Sarah. I've met some incredible people through blogging, which to be honest is my favourite thing about it. From people like Sarah and Vanessa who I see all of the time (I know, lucky them), to people that I've only met once or twice like Laura, Stacey, Char, Beth, Saida, I could go on but I'd be here for hours. They're all really good bloggers, but more than that they're lovely people who I'm so happy to know! Enough with the mushy crap! What's your favourite bold lipstick?
