Pale pink

Here’s what I wore Wednesday November 30. I used to not wear pale pink clothes, because my skin is so fair and I was afraid that it would wash me out completely, but I really love pale pinks, so I decided to wear them anyways.

Exciting Velour liquid lipsticks

dsc_1625dsc_1629

My latest order of Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipsticks is really exciting. I purchased one of the shades I’ve been wanting since I first discovered Jeffree Star Cosmetics, his first metallic shade, and two shades from his limited edition holiday collection. Redrum was one of the original three Velour liquid lipsticks and I’ve heard several youtubers say that it’s their go-to red lipstick. As you might know by now red is my go-to lip colour, so I’ve been wanting Redrum for so long, and when I finally saw it on Beauty Bay I bought it right away. I’ve worn it a few times and it really is gorgeous; such a good classic red. I love that Jeffree has started making metallic liquid lipsticks as well, and since his first metallic shade released he has come out with two more. But the shade I’ve got is Dreamhouse which is the perfect name for a metallic hot pink lipstick. I wore it New Year’s Eve and it was so cool and festive. Lastly, I had to pick up a couple of his holiday lipsticks. I chose the shades Pumpkin Pie and Crocodile Tears. Pumpkin Pie is a terracotta orange with red/pink and gold shimmer (I think – it’s hard to see the exact colours of the shimmer) and Crocodile Tears is a dark green. I haven’t worn these shades yet, but I’m really excited to play around with them.

Deep pink

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. If you are not comfortable in or a bit scared of wearing bright pinks on your lips this deeper pink will be perfect for you. It’s such a pretty colour.

Mixing fabrics

Here’s what I wore Friday November 25. I love this outfit; I think the denim overall skirt and the shiny pink bomber look great together. I guess I just really like mixing different fabrics in an outfit; here I mixed denim with a satin like fabric with a velvet choker and leather boots.

Small collective haul

dsc_1524

Here’s a few products I picked up over the past few months. The MAC lip pencil is in the shade Redd, and I’ve been wanting it for quite a while, but it had been sold out online and at my local MAC counters for months. I wanted it because it’s a yellow based red and I thought it would be perfect for all my bright yellow based red lipsticks. I also picked up another Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner in the shade 018 Addiction which is a really pretty nude. I had been wanting to try out the Wet n Wild Megaglo contouring palette in the shade Dulce De Leche, because I had heard good things about it, so when I finally found it in the right shade I had to try it out. The colours are really nice for my fair skin and so far I quite like it. On the same day I also picked up the Wet n Wild Coverall primer which I really like as well.

Dirty money

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. This lipstick is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I think it’s awesome. And I love the name Dirty Money; it does really remind me of money or the colour of money.
