This weekend, I kind of geeked out. My fam and I went to ComiCon Toronto, and I also geeked out over some new makeup. Of course. To attend ComiCon, I bypassed lipstick (gasp!) and went the gloss route for once, deciding to test drive one of MAC’s new Mineralize Glass lip glosses. These new glosses just launched last week.
Simple and sophisticated are two goals I try to achieve with any makeup look. There are a few new-ish products that have entered my makeup rotation that have helped me to achieve these goals.
Ever have one of those where you think, “yah, that’s right. I’m rockin’ it today.” I’m kidding. Well, okay, sort of. I have to admit I felt quite good on this day — thanks to Rimmel’s Colour Rush Balm and Hourglass Ambient blush. This combination of bright pinks did wonders for the winter blahs I’ve been feeling. Putting on such bright colours added life to my face, and somewhat uplifted my soul. Yes, makeup can do that for me.
With so much makeup on hand, I’m often asked how I ever decide on what to wear on a daily basis. Sometimes I take my cue from my outfit. Other times I take my cue from one particular product, while on other days, I take my cue from my mood, i.e. is it a bold lipstick day or a smokey eye kind of day? Today, I was inspired by two products while shopping my stash: MAC’s Craving lipstick and Illamasqua blush in Ambition.
My love affair with lip crayons continues, and the latest to grab my attention is the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balms. I have a couple in my collection, and I have to say, I think I need to own all of them. Yes, I do. Here’s a look at Tease*, a burnt orange that I think could work on so many skin tones.
