Lipstick crisis!

Lipstick crisis!

 Hi Girls

I’ve had a bit of a crisis today. . , I couldn’t decide which lipstick to wear!

 

Option 1 was  Gosh Amersyth with Gosh Darling underneath to conceal.

There is Gosh Darling, Gosh Amersyth and then Amersyth over Darling.

 

Option 2 was Barry M 144, a very bright pink with Barry M 101 underneath to cancel out my natural lip colour. 

There is 101, 144 and then 144 over 101.

 

So I guess you want to know what I’ve chosen?

Well I’ve gone with the Gosh combo (above) simply because after all my flaffing around, taking pictures and on, off so many times, time has ran out and I should be out the door very, very soon (NOW really) and as I’ve got Gosh on my lips . . !

 

I also think in reality, 144 (above) is even brighter and pinker (the swatch gives a truer representation then the product image) and Gosh (which does look more like the product then the swatch when it is on my lips) is just a little more wearable for a day look.

I have to say today that when I wiped the 144 and 101 off my lips and started applying Gosh, I really noticed how nice Gosh felt and how easily it went on. I have heard that Barry M 100 and 101 can be drying but personally I have never noticed this until today, when I applied Gosh straight afterwards. There was a definite difference in how nice Gosh was to apply.

Other make up that I’m wearing includes Barry M Mushroom (yay) and chocolate dazzledusts, RSVP from Benefit as a base for the eyes, Erase paste, a combination of Bourjois 10 hour sleep effect foundation and my normal Revlon Colorstay in Ivory, Maybelline Peach blush mousse with Coralista over the top and then the Max Factor Lash Extension mascara which I discussed in a recent post.

Despite my earlier rave for this mascara, I have to say that the dazzledusts can seem quite strong and heavy on the eyelid even when you keep the look light probably because the dust is not as fine or as light as the particles of a more conventional powder eyeshadow. I have no qualms with this and love the dazzledusts as you all know but this Max Factor  mascara seems to slip in to the shadows a little when worn with these dazzledusts. The frame it forms for my eye make up suddenly seems a little foggy. It is still a wearable look and I have decided to keep it on for today but I’m not as impressed as I was when I previously tried this mascara. Maybe dazzledusts need more of a volumising mascara?!

What do you think? Do you always line and mascara with dazzledusts? What mascara do you use? What do you think of my lip options? Do you have any problems with Barry M 101 (or 100, noooooooo) drying?

PS Check out http://www.makeupandbeauty.ie . I think I’ve mentioned it before but this site covers so many things make up and beauty-wise and the blog is updated daily. Amy, the blogger and YouTube Guru (Dazzledust25) has said that she will be having a competition very soon and she promises very good prizes and has said that this will include some MAC. Even without the possible loot, I really do recommend this site, if like me, you want to learn.
