Time to put the Spice Girls back in your head with another Blush Baby lipstick! Today it’s Vixen*, a rich ruby red that I would be happy to keep on my lips all winter.
This is the second Blush Baby lipstick I’ve featured lately and I still really like them. You can see how creamy and glossy it is on my lips. This does mean it transfers a bit after a while, especially when I drink out of a glass. (As an aside, I’m really bad at drinking out of glasses, and spill whatever I’m drinking about 60% of the time.)
On its own this lipstick is a bit pinker than it appears in these pictures, because here I’ve applied it over MAC lip pencil in Redd. A lipliner is pretty much essential under creamy lipsticks, especially if they’re prone to transferring. I always colour my whole lips in with liner, too, so I’m not left with a lip outline and no pigment on the centre of my lips. And I used Redd rather than a pinky liner because I’m kind of on the fence about fuchsia and magenta shades on me at the moment. Am I falling victim to seasonal colour rules? I hope not!
The eyes in this look are from this post, done with all Eye of Horus goodies. I know this look is heavy on the gratis products, but you guys know I’m always honest and what am I going to do, not use the products I’m sent to try?
Check out those eye bags. Side note: anyone got a good eye cream recommendation?
