Black Cherry/Peach Petal

October 24, 2010

On Saturday (aka GAMEDAY) I thought I’d keep errthing simple and just mess with lipcolor, especially since I never mess with my lipsticks during the workweek.

The first pictures are done with Wet ‘n Wild lipsticksomethingorother in Black Cherry.  After going to the grocery store I removed the lipstick and applied Peach Petal lipgloss.

I don’t really like how the gloss settles in the lines of my lips, but other than that I freaking love this stuff.  It’s probably as close as I’ll ever get to a nude lip.

For the rest of my face:

Eyes:  Covergirl Lashblast mascara (I’m giving a second chance since there aren’t any drugstore mascaras calling my name right now)

Cheeks:  NYX Hot Pink eyeshadow, lightly applied and heavily blended, and Hard Candy Moonglow

Skin:  Revlon Colorstay foundation to conceal, Sassy Minerals foundation in Neutral Light

    OM NOM NOM LOVE THE FIRST LIPS. Peach Petal looks really pretty on you too! :) My friend is obsessed with that lipgloss.

      The lipstick is so scary in der tube (purply-black) but it’s pretty sweet once you swipe it on. It’s just too bad that all the good lipstick colors are drying, you know?

    Black Cherry looks fantastic on you! I really like the Peach Petal, too, but I totally agree with you about lipgloss settling in lines. So annoying!

      Yeah, especially with really milky or dark colors! Unless there’s a heavy-duty plumper underneath it gives me old buttlips—they look all puckered and wrinkly and weird.

      Also, thank you!

        Why haven’t I thought of using a plumper beneath my settling glosses? Brilliant. Do you have a favorite?

        I actually don’t have one; I haven’t had much luck finding one that actually does what it says :(
