According to the blog, this is my 300th post! Yikes. This blog has gotten so much love from so many people in the past few years and I'm amazed I kept this up for so long!
So, in spirit of my 300th post, it only makes sense to go back to my first and only true love, LIPSTICK. Over the years, I have acquired quite a few (hundred. I'm shameless.) and I love them all. Every hue belongs to its own artistic family and there is nothing better than to play around with creating shades I don't own with the lip colors I have.
I depotted/melted these awhile ago and kept them in little containers. I use a lip brush to apply.
Revlon's Love that Red, and Revlon's Black Cherry
Love that Red is a coral-red and doesn't look particularly flattering on me by itself. Black Cherry is a gorgeous plum that's a bit too dark on me my itself. The combination of them together is a nice balance of both worlds. It's still bright, but with a bit of plum.
I love the texture of Revlon's Super Lustrous lipsticks. They are moisturizing and highly pigmented.
I dusted my cheek with Plum Attraction from Chanel.
That's the completed "bold lippie" look using Revlon's Love That Red and Black Cherry.
What do you gals think? Do you mix lip colors for intensity, for different shades or just for fun?
