Seeing RedSo I’ve been having a down day (week, to be more precise) – of which I would like to express in more ways than one but will save you guys the drama as I don’t want to spread any bad vibes here. Instead, I’ll divert my energy towards makeup and its feel-good effects (shallow as it may sound). My pick-me-upper of choice? A bold lip, please. Despite my natural tendency to gravitate towards pinks, no other lipstick makes me feel more confident than the good ol’ red. Which means — I’ve a reason to bust out a red lipstick currently gathering dust in my drawers. Tom Ford Crimson Noir (review here). This lipstick didn’t really impress me in terms of formula especially with its $49 price tag. However, I do like that this wears well on my perpetually dry and peeling lips. You’ll see on the photos below how very forgiving Crimson Noir is on my beyond-saving lips. Despite its not-so-unique shade, I actually don’t have a red quite like it in my stash as I usually prefer deep Hollywood reds (Viva Glam I, Cruella) over true reds.
Products I’m Currently TestingMaybelline Fashion Brow 24H Colouring Mascara*. Ack I can’t believe it!!! I’ve finally found a more reasonably priced dupe for my MAC Girl Boy brow set — and with a wand applicator that’s easier to work with! It coats the brow hairs more precisely and with just the right amount on each swipe unlike the MAC set that coats even the skin underneath, above and below the brows. I will do a full review of these Brow Mascaras ASAP! Dolly Wink Line Beat 24H Long Lasting Liner*. Ultra slim 0.1mm eyeliner, folks. Perfect for my hooded eyes that need only the slimmest flick of liner as to not cover the entire lid (sigh, times I wish I had more lid space). In terms of wetness, I don’t find it as glossy — compared to the Stila Waterproof liner — which is great. Also, I’m not sure if this is Dolly Wink’s new packaging as I’m used to the pink one or if it’s altogether a new formula. Will update you on this soon. Pixi Natural Brow Duo. In terms of brow pencils, I have been preferring this over my Majolica Majorca Brow Customize as it’s more pigmented but not too much that I’d end up having Frida Kahlo brows. It just makes filling in easier and quicker as compared to the less pigmented yet softer looking Majolica Brow Customize. The transparent brow gel at the other end is also very convenient but I have light hair at the moment so I always reach for a colored brow mascara after. Benefit They’re Real Mascara. Not entirely new as this is my second tube of this particular mascara. At first, I wasn’t impressed by it because it tends to weigh down my lashes but I realized it does a good job lengthening them — I just have to re-curl after application. The best feature of They’re Real, in my opinion, is its brush/wand. Its thin rubber bristles ensure no clumping and makes for easy application down to the roots.
Final LookFor the base, I forgot to include Benefit’s Big Easy* in the photo but yes, I’m currently testing it too before I pen down my final thoughts regarding it. Another newcomer is Collection 2000’s Lasting Perfection Concealer I bought very recently (in my shade that’s always sold out!). On the cheeks, I’m wearing NARS Laguna and Chanel blush in Accent. And for the eyes, I used the shades Fresco and Truffle from my Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette. A gratuitous shot of me applying my feel-good lipstick au choix. And you know what I realized? Maybe every cent of that $49 is worth it. I love how chic~ I look holding that mahogany Tom Ford tube. I bet you didn’t even notice I had spinach lodged in between my teeth above ‘cos the lipstick stole the show. Gotcha. Also, I love how deceivingly smooth my lips look despite the major peeling session it had undergone the night before. Hmmm, Tom Ford lipsticks, I’m suddenly getting the feels for you. Such a love-hate relationship we have.
Anyway, that’s it! How about you, my friends? Does makeup make you feel better during your down days or you’re the type that gets lazy to even put makeup on?
