I’m really not supposed to be writing this right now. I have a four hour economics exam tomorrow and here I am rambling about makeup, not feeling guilty at all. I gave myself a little break to get away from studying (in other words: I’m procrastinating – what I do best) by playing around with my beautiful toys.
Since it is Wednesday, pink is the appropriate colour to go for. Hence, the name of the post. I have a confession to make: I never watched the movie Mean Girls. I know, I know. It’s the first step that introduces you to the teenage life. But I’m still alive, aren’t I?
Starting with the eyes, we have MAC’s All That Glitters eyeshadow. My all time favourite, go-to eyeshadow that, unfortunately, smashed a few days ago *sheds a tear*. It’s not the first time that this shadow appears on the blog. It really brings out the green in my eyes and looks so flattering with my skin tone.
For the cheeks, I found this Bobbi Brown blush in Nectar hidden in mama’s stash a while ago. The pigmentation is cray cray! You literally need the tiniest amount of powder because otherwise it’ll either look like you’ve just been slapped or you’ve got a really bad sunburn. The application has to be like a flower caressing the cheeks. Ouh, I actually felt that just by imagining it.
Lastly, we’ve got two Benefit products for the lips: the new Lollitint – sister of Benetint, and ultra plush lip gloss in Lollibop. I was quite surprised by Lollitint at first. The liquid itself looks more plummy rather than pink. But that changed once I tried it on. When applied onto the cheeks, it is safe to say that it is one of the strongest pinks in my whole collection of blushes. It would look great with a red lip. As for the lip application, it gives nice just bitten
extra hard that you’re about to bleed lips. Today, I used this on my lips only and topped it with the gloss which, btw, is my favourite type of lip gloss EVA. The ultra plush glosses are simple divine a) they’re not sticky, b) they smell amazing and c) they’re super smooth. Basically, it’s the type of product that would give a makeup boner. Very appropriate.
That’s all for now! What are your pink (or not pink) products this Wednesday?
