make me up

M.A.C Mineralize foundation, M.A.C Frost lipsticks in Victorian and Madly Creative, Clinique Almost Make-up

A friend of mine had an ‘in’ to a corporate make-up sale, and she passed me along an invite. Having heard good things about this previously, I didn’t want to miss out on my chance at discounted make-up. Apart from foundation (I was running out, so this was all very nicely timed) I didn’t really have anything in mind to buy. I could have gone crazy on glosses and eye shadows and body scrubs, but in the end I kept it simple because I’m not really a ‘make-up’ kind of person. This pink lipstick I picked up is about as crazy and out there as I go. Yep, living life on the edge…

    the pink lipstick is the perfect shade. i'm not a makeup person too…can you believe i dont actually OWN any foundation or powder?? sometimes i feel childish about that but then i realise i should be grateful i don't need it..

    You know what – it's too hot to wear makeup! I don't know how girls do it in mid-summer with a full face of well… makeup/paint.
    There are days I struggle to put mascara on.
    Both colours look lovely πŸ™‚

    nice lipstick shades! I'm very far from a make-up kinda gal myself, but even I would love to get my hands on some discounted MAC and Clinique goodies.

    the pink lipstick is such a beautiful shade! i'd love to wear lipstick, but i just think it looks really rather stupid on me. i usually only wear foundation and powder, i'm preyty useless at putting it on, though, but i need it…

    "Living life on the edge"… hence the shot on a ledge/banister? Hahaha.

    I'm not a makeup person either, but that pink lipstick is so lovely it makes me reconsider.

  14. clinique! my all time favorite. love the colors of those lipsticks, they are like hinting at colors.

    @chow: definitely be grateful!

    @hannah: It's getting that way hey? That's my I use mineral powder, because it doesnt feel as "gluggy" as liquid foundation. I also picked up the 'almost makeup' for those summer days when I'd usually dread wearing a full face of slap haha.

    @Jenny: oh you must wear your red lippy out!

    @Barbara: I think a stand out feature is good to have every now and then. Be it statement eye make up or pops of colour on the lips.

    @Jazzabelle: I never used to wear lipstick in my teens. I think it's a bit of a thing you experiment with as you get older, so don't worry about it too much πŸ™‚

    @Patricia: would you believe that I didn't even pick up on that until you pointed it out? haha

    @Kallie: you would've loved this sale! There was pretty much the entire range of clinique foundation and powders and then some lipsticks and all their skin care stuff (and that's just the stuff I can remember).

  16. Joellen October 5, 2010

    I imagine the pink to look amazing on you! It looks really beautiful in the tube too!

    +I srsly don't mean to advertise, but I'm having my first giveaway, so if you'd like, take a peek! xo

  17. soph (owl vs. dove) October 5, 2010

    @Joellen: it's a bit bright (a lot brighter than the pictures make out to be) but I'm getting used to it! And don't worry about 'advertising' – I know you're not a spammer πŸ™‚
