Revisited: NYX Lip Lingerie

I’ve recently been using up some old bits of makeup and revisiting some cult classics I have purchased from the influence of others or just from curiosity. Remember when everyone went crazy over Nyx Lip Lingerie? When no one knew how to pronounce lingerie, or knew it was a french word for underwear? How they were a dead ringer for some Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits, and everyone would suck shot glasses to get big, voluptuous lips? Today, we are revisiting that, minus triple the size lips or getting bruises from shot glasses.

Look of the day #2

Thought I would share my make up for today. I went for a meal with my boyfriend so it was nothing too special, but I am in love with this lipstick colour! It’s Grenadine by Smashbox. I do believe its a discontinued colour but you may still be able to get it at your local counter which is where I bought mine.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick Review and Swatches!

So for the past few years I have been purchasing Viva Glam lipsticks as I think it’s a fantastic cause, and a lovely colour each cycle. This year Viva Glam is represented by Rihanna, which instantly made me think that it’s going to be a red lipstick and when it came out I wasn’t surprised by my assumption being correct. A cool toned red with a gold glimmer, this lipstick applies smoothly with glossy colour.
