Lipstick

I'm not that big of a make-up fan. Just give me any black eyeliner and something to make my skin look somewhat passable, and I'm happy. A couple of years ago though, I went through this "lipstick phase" and it's been revived in the past few weeks. My favourite lipstick (well, the only one I owned at the time) was running out so I took to ASOS and got two of the Kate Moss for Rimmel ones. By the way, for my fellow Australians (if you haven't realised already): makeup is way, way, cheaper online.



01 is a red. 04 is a dark purple, which I got cause I was feeling adventurous. I wish they had better names for the colours (puns are always good).

Here are two webcam pics from when I wore them out (notice the same dress on different days. Please don't judge me). To make up for past indiscretions, I haven't been wearing lipstick with any eyemakeup (when I was 15 I honestly believed heavy eyeliner with bright lipstick was a good daytime look).


I can't say that the "feeling adventurous" gamble paid off because 04 is really hard to wear - it makes my skintone look odd when my clothes are anything other than black. So then I end up looking like some 13 year old mall goth (although judging from my last post, this is probably my true self).

So 01 is basically... red (blue red I think?). I think I like more orange-reds better.

The eagle-eyed of you will noticed that I've cut my hair (literally. I cut it myself). My hair has a complicated and tragic past (I'm just being dramatic here) that I will explain after I grow it out a bit more and get it done by an actual hairdresser.

In other news, Deluminators turns 1 today! Thanks for reading and following, I've greatly enjoyed oversharing blogging this year. It still amazes me when I lurk my stats (haha) and see people from places on the other side of the world visiting my blog!

    Not really. You've had the same hair cut for a while.

    When I met you at the station my first thoughts were 'WHO IS THIS GOTH KID AND WHY ARE THEY WALKING TOWARDS ME'. I kid you not (but then my brain started functioning and finally realised).

  2. i love the red one so much! :) i've been exactly the same. especially over the past week, i've been using red lipstick a lot. i used to use an orangey red lipstick but i switched to blue-red because it stands out more. yay for Deluminators! <3 i've enjoyed very much reading your blog, Jane, and seeing your many beautiful photos and reading about your food-adventures especially. :3 xxx

  3. The red one suits you more, but I think it's good to think out of the box with the darker shade.
    And Happy Blog Birthday :) xoxo

  7. Hurrah! Happy, merry one year anniversairy! Hopefully there are more to come! :D

    I like how you put the lipsticks on a map of the world, just next to Europe. And I dig the hair. I like the red one better, just because I like colour and it makes your face warmer. But both are nice!!

  13. ASOS sells lipstick? Omg... I had no idea! I'm gonna check it, I couldn't agree with you more when you said make-up online is so much cheaper. Urgh, everything is so pricey here, it's so annoying!

    The red lipstick looks great on you! A pop of colour since you're wearing something dark! :D

  16. I like the dark color. It's very interesting. I hate wearing lipstick. If I do, I put the tiniest bit of red on and then go over it with a ton of gloss. But if I can find a lipstick that feels good, I'll wear it, but I have yet to find one! I used to wear mocha brown in high school, it looked sooooo bad lol.

  20. I'm obsessed with lipstick. I literally wear it everyday and I feel strange if I'm not wearing it. I love those colors on you!

  21. I go through phases as well. Sometimes, I'm all about the eyeliner and other times, it switches to lipstick. And by the way, I like the red best on you!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love lipstick! I've heard good things about the Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks so I probably should check them out! I like the red one on you, but I personally prefer orange tone reds as well!

    Have a lovely day! :) //Niina

  23. I've been wanting to get one of those kate moss lipsticks! I'm normally more of an eyeliner person but lipstick is just more fun! I think the red one looks really nice on you x

  24. First of all happy 1st blog birthday! :D

    I wear some of the same clothes throughout the week so no judging from me! I really like the red on you, it really looks stunning.

  25. I adore the red lippy on you! I'm like you when it comes to makeup - I like simplistic looks because I think applying layers and layers of makeup everyday is ridiculously time-consuming. Never knew buying makeup online was cheaper, but thanks for that!
    Yay, happy birthday to your beautiful blog :) You really deserve all the support you get.

  29. Happy 1st birthday to your blog! I adore both lip colours but I must admit to loving the brighter red more (only since my bf told me dark lips look like a bacterial infection on your mouth!) You look gorgeous <3

  31. i've considered getting a really dark plum/black lipstick as well but i just don't know how brave i am. i tried out using black (eye make up) on my lips for halloween and i actually liked it a lot but i don't think i can pull it off other than that, haha. i'm more into really dark blood reds but i haven't been able to find the perfect lipstick for me yet, but i'm pretty pale so i don't think blue-reds are for me either. i do like it on you in the picture though!

  32. Love the post below. Hehe.
    Also yeah I only recently got into make up, my friend bought me a blue red from MAC and I've been besotted ever since. I've since added a plum and a pink to my collection :)

    Hope you have a good christmas babe :)
