Barely There Lippies + FOTD

As you all know I'm obsessed with nude lipsticks. I don't know why, but I'm. I don't own a lot of lipsticks compared to other people, but I think I still need to minimize my cravings for nudes. I love nudes maybe because it goes with everything- smokey looks, blue eyeshadows, purple eyeshadows, simple looks, everything practically. I own mostly MACs, but I really want to explore other brands. I really really desperately want  YSL and Chanels, but their price are way up there. I'll probably get my hands on them when I finish 2 lipsticks, or maybe 3. Can you guys resist a temptation like this?

I have 5 nude lippies, but one is almost dunzo whooopieee. I like it when a products is almost out, just because it means that it was well loved.

Myth is almost out and I'm really happy. I love this color and the finish of it is amazing. I really love the satin finish of MAC just because it gives a subtle sheen to my lips. I know a lot of people say that Myth is super drying and it is to be honest, but it is still my most well loved lipstick next to it  is Creme D Nude.
FOTD: (June 9)

Another face of the day for this blog. I love looking at other people's FOTD just because I like to know what products they use, or how they look.

I often go with natural look- neutral eyeshadows, winged liner, mascara. know I need to learn how to put on exciting colours because summer is approaching. Time for my colored eyeshadows to shine this season. I ignored them during fall and winter just because I don't have the guts to go out with colored lids. I'm talking about blues, purples, yellows, orange, etc. Do you guys wear eyeshadows that are flashy? Tell me how you guys pull it off because I'm still not comfortable with them.

Here is my rather out there FOTD.  

Products used:

Korres Vitamin Face Primer
Revlon Photoready in Nude

Do you have a lipstick that you absolute love that you would purchase again and again? mine would be angel, creme d nude and Myth



  1. I love rocking bright coloured eyeshadow, but I also understand why it's not to everyone's taste! Honestly I have the confidence to wear it because when I do I always get loads more compliments on my make-up than if I did a neutral eye. I love it when people notice the time I take on my make-up! :) x

  2. if you live near a walmart, hard candy makes a really nice nude called fire alarm. i'm not a big lipstick person but i love it. :]

  3. @Sabra Rose-I know what your mean. When I wore this one out I got a lot of good complimets. Its like they notice my makeup more.
