Intense hazelnut

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. As I wrote in the outfit post I really wanted to play around with my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This is the look I came up with, and I love it. It’s a pretty intense look, so I decided to pair it with a nude lip.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday February 3. I actually picked out my outfit based on the make-up I wanted to wear that day; I wanted to play around with my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, and the look I came up with will be up on the blog next.

Provocalips + Kate

I have been waiting for the Rimmel Provocalips to come to Denmark, and when they finally did (and the drugstore had a 3 for 2 sale on Rimmel make-up) I went out and bought two different colours to try them out. I chose the colours 200 I’ll Call You and 550 Play With Fire. I’ll Call You just seemed like the perfect mid tone neutral pink, and it’s very pretty and very wearable. There were two different red shades, but Play With Fire which is the darker one really caught my eye. So far I’m quite impressed with these liquid lipsticks. They’re really pigmented and has a matte finish when they dry. You can leave them like that or you can apply the lock and shine balm which I’ve done the times I’ve worn them, and your lips look and feel great. Because there was a 3 for 2 sale when I bought them, I also picked up yet another Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick. I picked up no. 29 which is a purply, magenta type colour. So pretty!  You’ll see all of these lip products on my lips in make-up posts in the future.

Candied violet

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wanted to create a look based on the Candied Violet shade in my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, but as I wrote in this post I was a bit disappointed in the glittery shades. Candied Violet looks way more purple and glittery in the pan, but on the eye the shade shows up as in the picture which still looks pretty, but I just expected the colour to be more vibrant and glittery.

Lips: Rimmel Colour Rush Colour Balm in 110 Make Me Blush)

5 favourites – February

The last winter month has come to an end, and I’m really looking forward to spring. I hope the weather will soon become more spring-like though. Sadly, February has been a month of illness in my case; I’ve been ill the past week, and I was also ill a couple of weeks back. Hopefully, the arrival of spring will change my unfortunate situation. But anyways, on to this months favourites.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar eye shadow palette: I just want to mention right away that I had quite a few make-up favourites this month, but I’ve boiled them down to three. My absolut favourite make-up product this month has been my Chocolate Bar palette. This palette is amazing, and I’m so glad I finally bought it. I did a full post on it here.

Stila Convertible Color in Lillium: Yes, my two purchases from BeautyBay.com have definitely been hits this month. This dual lip and cheek cream has been one of my most used blushers this month; I love the colour, and I love the more dewy finish a cream product gives the skin. I would love to get my hands on more Convertible Colors from Stila.

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 210 Keep It Classy: I’ve mentioned this lip product several times this past month and for that reason alone I had to feature it in this post. The reason I have mentioned it a lot is simply because it’s sooo good. It’s so smooth and easy to apply, and it’s quite long lasting as well. I would say it has a semi-matte finish, and the colour is absolutely amazing. I’m wearing it here.

Friends

Friends – TV-series: I don’t remember if I’ve mentioned it before (I probably have), but Friends is my all-time favourite TV-series. I’ve watch all seasons so many times, but I still find it amusing. Due to the fact that I finished the last season of Sex and the City (again) which is my second favourite TV-series, and the fact that I’ve been ill a lot, I started watching Friends again, and it never grows old in my opinion.

McBusted (album) – McBusted: I think we have established by now how much I love McBusted, and I really wanted to get my hands on their debut album which came out in December last year, but you can’t buy it in any music stores in Denmark. I had thought about buying it somewhere online, but without me knowing about it my mum had bought it for me, so you can imagine how excited I was when she told me. I was a bit sceptical about the whole McBusted thing in the beginning (due to the fact that I’m such a huge McFly fan), but I have to say McBusted has won me over big time. I would probably still like to have McFly back at some point, but right know I’m really into McBusted, and their debut album is everything I hoped for. I knew a couple of the songs already (which I loved and still do), but I was so stoked to finally listen to the whole album, and the sound is just the perfect mix of McFly and Busted. Well done, guys!

Bright red

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. It’s not that often that I wear a bright red lip like the one I’m wearing in these pictures (I’m more into darker reds), but I really liked it with this look, so maybe I should do it more often:)

(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – MAC Keepsakes Plum Eyes eye shadow palette (shades: Subtly Elegant + Fashion Beat) + Stila All Over Shimmer Duo highlighter (lightest shade on browbone), mascara – Maybelline The Rocket Volum’ Express, eyeliners – Maybelline Color Tattoo in Permanent Taupe (40) + MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White. Lips: MUA Intense Colour lipliner in Red Drama + Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in 500 Diva Red)
