If you ever need a bold and opaque lipstick in outrageous yet splendidly playful colors, Lime Crime. You will need make-up remover and a few cotton balls to get it off your face, but totally worth the bold look. I would suggest a lip primer underneath it though! Nothing worse than chapped colorful lips. This remarkably sinister Serpentina is perfect for any and all Medusas, Poison Ivys or anyone who wants a sparkly green accent to their holiday outfit. Unfortunately, it’s sold out on the website, but thankfully Amazon has three available (at the time of this draft).
The website also claims to have a lip stain that not only dries to a matte. velvet finish, but is kiss- proof! I would love to test this theory, however the Velvetines collection is not currently available on their site. There is a silver lining; The latest color is set to release on November 29th.
A few days ago I had to grab make-up in a flash because I was lazy and didn’t wear any to work, but then was suddenly invited to an event that night. I left work at 9:30, the event was at 10 – you see how there was no time to rush home, get ready and then leave? I rushed into Walgreens where I spent $44 on the basic essentials for my face. Most of it was cheap Wet N’ Wild crap, a little bit of Maybelline, and L’Oreal’s mineral make-up foundation. You would be shocked what ended up being the best item of the purchase.
First off, someone please suggest to me a mineral make-up that isn’t powder. Seriously. It gets all over my (obviously) black clothes and I honestly feel like I’m inhaling most of it. Regardless of the great coverage the L’Oreal True Match Naturale mineral make-up has, it gets everywhere and essentially pisses me off most the time. If you have time and patience, and are constantly putting make-up on over a sink, you might really like it! As for me, I need something less messy. Seriously.
Moving on, the biggest unexpected hit was the Wet N’ Wild Fergie edition lipstick. It stayed on all night, and I was eating a lot of garlic knots. It will get all over your chin when your lips folds down as you eat though, so be aware of that. The color “Fuschianista” has a translucent blue shimmer over it, and it’s super hot with black, smoky eyes and minimal blush.
I know, goths are “supposed” to love black and rich purples, but this hot pink made such a statement with my all black attire. Think Siouxsie:
