FOTDs summer haul

This is a closer look at the NARS sheer lipstick in Masai. As described, it's a "rose quartz". The colour at first glance is plum with quartz reflection. On my lips (without lip erase or any concealer), it looks like this:

The lipstick is so moisturising I can wear it simply alone, and it turns up as a very pretty strawberry/raspberry kind of shade. I bet the effect will be even better with a little concealer on my lips to show off the true colour of Masai itself.

Here, I used:

  • MAC's kohl pencil in Phone Number

  • Diego Dalla Palma blush (very sheer, I had to do a few layers to get this result)

  • Madina non-talc loose powder

  • La Prairie brightening eye treatment (the pen-like concealer that Nic has also)
So ok, what does the Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Lipshine in Toffee look like?

Well, it's very creamy, richly pigmented and shiny. Again, it's so moist I can wear it alone. Absolutely delicious.

Here, I'm using slightly different products for a similar look:
  • Make Up For Ever kohl pencil
  • NARS Angelika blush
  • a section of falsies on the ends of my eyes for extra wink
The Angelika blush has a distinct purple undertone. This is one layer that I did, and it's beautiful. When I tried it out at the NARS counter, the lady really laid it on. The effect was dramatic, but still very elegant.

Cheryl!! Omg, I got so excited seeing your face, lol. Ok, not in a perverted way. I just meant you don't do FOTDs much! But you totally should!!!

Those l/s colors look amazing against your snowy skin, and I love the blush. I should use more blush... hehehe.
