This week, I decided to go khaki. I pulled out my mini Dior Royal Khaki quint and my Chanel Vert Khaki, along with Urban Decay pencil liner in Stash. Base products are pretty much the same. The same Diorsnow face powder which I have scheduled a review for (watch out for it next week), the Shiseido base that just. won’t. die. (ugh!), the Clarins Vitamin Pink blush that only has a quarter left, my ever faithful brow companion from Shu Uemura (review also out next week), and a sample mascara from Estee Lauder. I also added a highlighter in my routine and rekindled my love for Dior Amber Diamond. For lips, I decided something sheer so I stuck with Clinique Chubby Stick in Oversized Orange.
You have a wedding dinner to attend right after work. All you have time to do is to get a quick shower and probably touch up your face. Then you realize the eye shadows were a mess, the blush has faded and your face is in serious need of fresh foundation. I hate having to rush after a tiring day at work. However, I had no choice but to do the best I could.
I thought this was easy enough to do. That’s what I thought anyway…when I saw MM from Makeup Morsels do hers. She did a gold / khaki green ombré liner but I wanted to do something even more subtle. Mine is a combination of 2 different greens and a grey. I could easily change it by patting different eye shadows on top, but I thought this was subtle and complemented my Butter London Dosh nails.
Corals. Not the ones you find by the beach, but the colour. What is a coral shade? There are coral pinks, coral reds, true corals, whatchamacallit corals. I remember a little Twitter conversation with fellow Bandits Xiao and Larie and coral was described as pinkorangered. Instead of pink orange and red, I read Pink or Angered. That sounds about right >.< So in my opinion, corals are colours tinged with orange. But then again, how do I know if it’s orange or coral? Or maybe peach since peach is orange and pink, right? Hence the confusion. I don’t even know if this lipstick I’m featuring is considered coral. So keep your opinions to yourself because if anyone of you disagree with me, Larie promised to punch you in the face. HAHAHA! Also, I KNOW I’m not the only one confused. This will be interesting!
For our second edition of Blush Fiends, we decided to feature a blush for Spring. I love the flowers that bloom during Springtime. The greens, the colours, the pastels. However, I hated the season. It gave me coughing fits, it gave me hay fevers, my nose was constantly red and swollen, my eyes were constantly watery. I was at a lecture, and I was coughing non stop, I couldn’t breathe. Every one was looking at me like I was a freak.
