Beauty Fix // Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara & Le Rouge Lipstick

I finally treated myself to some new makeup! Givenchy’s Noir Couture Mascara in Black Satin and Le Rouge Lipstick #204 Rose Boudoir. I was in severe need of a new mascara and my mother, a great makeup enthusiast, swears by Givenchy. I was pleasantly surprised — it doesn’t dry out my lashes in the least and separates while coating each little lash in black. I’m also swooning over the Rose Boudoir lipstick. I love the plush rose shade of the lipstick, not to mention it has such a smooth and creamy texture. It sits so lightly on my lips. It’s really perfect for a pop of color in the summer, but I think I’ll wear it all year round.

I used to be so anti-brown eyeshadow, thinking it wouldn’t enhance my own dark eyes. I was wrong & now I’m a total convert.

Finally, a new makeup post! Here I am testing out a shimmery natural look. With some new goodies from Glossybox, I wanted to put a look together that could work for day (not too much dramarama) but stays cool for night (drinks, anyone?).

The light lilac powder is perfect for layering, but I am digging it on it’s own. It would also look neat as a highlighter. So far, I think this face of the day is going to make repeat appearances this spring, no?

This is my first adventure into the land of dark, slightly goth lipstick. Oh, I didn’t set out to use mostly Kat Von D products but it just ended up that way! I don’t think I’ll be making this a regular look anytime soon, but it’s fun. And sometimes, a girl just wants to be a little spooky.

Wishlist Wednesday: Red Lipstick

I admit it: I am completely captivated by the allure of red lipstick. It’s sultry, the sassy dose of sensuality, and all with a slight nod to mystery and temptation. Oh yeah, and it makes me feel foxy whenever I wear it. The amount of times I’m photographed wearing various shades of red lipstick is either awesome or embarrassing.

Below is a list of my favorite reds that I’ve been using the past few years. I’m not putting up actual pictures of the products since most of the makeup swatches seem to be photoshopped onto the same tube of lipstick over and over again. Do you have a favorite lipstick color?

  1. Laura Mercier Creme Lipstick: Truly Red, $24
  2. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: Damned, $24
  3. NYX Black Label Lipstick in Brick, $7.50
  4. Shiseido Perfect Rouge: Salon, $25
  5. MAC Lipstick: Russian Red, $14.50
