Merry Xmas, and happy whatever, everyone! Today I am doing nothing in non-celebration of a holiday I don’t believe in. Call me a Scrooge- you’re right, and I don’t care. 😛
What I’m wearing:
Smashbox Photo Finish foundation primer
L’Oreal True Match foundation [W1].
Manic Panic Supernatural pressed powder [Spectral].
Studio Gear Holiday Smokey Eye Palette
Rimmel ScandalEyes Retro Glam mascara
NYC Expert Last lipstick [447 Forever Fuchsia]
I just got the New York Color Expert Last lipstick 447 Forever Fuchsia yesterday, on sale for $1 + tax at Rite Aid [normally $2- super cheap!], and I love it! It’s a fun, bright Barbie pink [how uncharacteristic of me] that sticks to you and nothing else- it’s not all over my coffee cup, it stayed put when I ate pancakes this morning, and no one was left embarrassed after holiday smooches. This lipstick is killer, especially for the price. I WILL own the whole line…
I also pulled out the Studio Gear Holiday Smokey Eye palette I was given last year and brushed a light dusting of the gold-rose blush on my cheeks, followed by the black, gold, and white shimmer around my eyes. I’ve always been fairly impressed with how long these powders last, even when you ‘load them on’. Such beautiful, shimmering shades anyone can wear.
As for the entire look itself, I was a little nervous I’d look like a strung-out Courtney Love, but it actually came together nicely, and I’m just waiting for an occasion to wear it again another day..
What makeup did you choose to wear today?
