It seems like I've been stepping out of my normal comfort zone in the world of makeup lately. There once was a time when I used to be quite adventurous with my makeup. I wore a lot of bright colored eyeshadow and eyeliners and all that disappeared when I turned 20. All my eye looks now consist of neutral colors, and sure I wore a lot bright pink and red lipstick, but I never dipped my foot back into the colorful world, until now.
I picked up two NYX Macaroon lipsticks one in the shade Violet and the other in Earl Grey. These colors are not for everyone and they're certainly not your typical everyday colors, but they sure are unique! It takes a bit of bravery as well as confidence, but with the right attitude and eye look, Earl Grey can be stunning! My favorite lip combination has actually been mixing these two colors; they make a beautiful lavender together.

The formulation of these lipsticks are quite creamy, but very opaque! As for wear time, I would say you can go 3-4 hours without reapplying.
Another lipstick I have worn, inside my house, is Wet n Wild's Pagan Angel from the Fergie collection. I first heard about this lipstick from Hollie also known as Eating Lipstick's video and after seeing it, I rushed to my local drugstore to pick it up! I know, I know, it's a black lipstick and it is a daunting color to wear, but there's just something about black lipstick that looks cool. I bought this as sort of a tester before buying Lime Crime's Black Velvet Velvetine which is a matte black lipstick, and after wearing Pagan Angel I might take the plunge and buy Black Velvet!
It's quite refreshing to step outside your comfort zone every now and then, especially with make up! If you don't like it you can always remove it, it is just make up after all. And who knows maybe you'll find something you end up loving.
Until next time, sending all my love to my fellow makeup connoisseurs!
