Not for the faint hearted, or self conscious....

"If I walk outside without lipstick, I feel naked."

-Sofia Vergara

For a long time I didn't wear lipstick. 
Even after I started getting into makeup, I focused on eyes and you would have been lucky to see some lip stain on me. 
But then one day I decided to try it out and gradually I started building up
 to the point where the last time I went to MAC I bought the two brightest lipsticks I could find in the store!

Firstly there was Neon Orange (a complete impulse buy):
This is a MAC PRO colour in the amplified creme finish and it's certainly accurately named, this lippy is bright!
It applies smoothly and it quite long lasting so that's great if you're having a busy day; minimal touch ups required.
I love this colour because it's something a bit different to the classic red, but is still high impact.
It also looks very similar to my friends Morange (so would be best to pick one if you've seen both)

And then there was Dear Diary:
This one is from the Beth Ditto collection and was the crazy bright pink I was looking for.
This is one of MACs pro-longwear lipcremes and goes on smoothly (but not at all sticky or extra creamy)  and is probably the longest lasting lipstick I own.
Sometimes you can still see hints of its colour even the next day after washing it off!
I love this blue toned neon pink, so you'll probably see it in many posts to come (I'm surprised there hasnt been one already)

So my bright lipstick search is over for now (with very good results dont you think?)
Luckily the shock of wearing bright lipsticks passed me by, otherwise these would be very hard to wear, 
and it's true I've begun to feel a bit naked if i leave home without any lipstick on.

P.S. can you spot the hint in one of the pictures of a post to come soon?

  4. I'm actually the opposite -for ages I would only wear minimal eyeliner + lipstick but recently I've been getting more into eye make up too. Both colors look awesome (Beth Ditto is also rad as heck) but with my skin tone I tend to go for stronger reds and darker colors to avoid the yellowing effect.

  5. For a long time I didn't wear lipstick either...mostly nude glosses if anything because my lips were always peeling and dry. Then last year I decided I wanted to wear lipstick again and came back with a bang, too! Bought a super bright pink and a deep red!

    These are great colors! I have a similar pink!

  6. I've been wanting morange for a while! But might now consider neon orange :O &is that a new dress you are making? :)

  7. Love the bright lippies..the pink one is my favourite!

  8. those two colors are definitely not for the faint of heart. well, glad to know you're getting into lipstick now.
