MAC Creme d'nude lipstick, MAC Superglass lipgloss in Sugar Overload and Cherry Electric, MAC Morange lipstick and Calvvin Klein Heavenly lipstick.
"The orange is a shade easy to try out even for girls who don't usually wear colorful lips"
Oh, that's me! So I'll try it! ; )
It says she applies the color directly from the lipstick and goes a little bit over her natural lip line. Got ya!
If you don't think we should listen to Ena's makeup and fashion advice - you crazy. ;)))
Besides orange lips are a great trend for spring/summer!
My only "but" would be - it really requires a flawless skin, so I will not use it on a bad skin days... (^_~) But then again, maybe it would take the attention away from a random zit? Who knows? ;D
You might have noticed, I am really under the influence of japanese fashion magazines... xD Well, I was reading the last JELLY issue (which I got from my beloved friends (^_^♥)) and there was this page, where celebs were showing their spring makeup. Of course the super fashionable Matsumoto Ena's part caught my eye and she was showing a bright orange-red lipstick she says she is using a lot recently. And really, don't you just see orange-red lips everywhere in fashion magazines now? I looooove the look and spring does call for bright colors indeed, so since I had 6 MAC empties (mostly dazzleglasses lol), I went to do some back2mac and get EXACTLY THE SAME lipstick Ena uses! Woohoo! (^___^')
Morange lipstick comes in "Amplified" finish. It is easy to get lost with all the different finishes, so here's a super useful bit from Karlsugar: Amplified lipsticks "are quite pigmented and have a cream finish (shinier than the mattes, but no shimmer or sparkle). They are one of MAC’s more moisturizing options, which (combined with the pigmentation) makes them a frequent favorite. Amplified Creme’s most famous shades are Dubonnet, Cosmo, and Blankety." (source here!! swatches too!)
Looks kinda messy, sorry, but you can see the loooovely bright orange-red color well ♥.
Here are my swatches:
no flash, daylight
And swatches on lips! First no flash photos:
with Cherry Electric Superglass gloss on top! ♥
And now lip swatches with flash!
You can see the "amplified creme" finish nicely, it is opaque, but very creamy and moisturizing
♥ And with the gloss on top ♥
REVIEW. First of all, I got this lipstick with back2mac program, because I wasn't sure if I was going to wear it, becasue usually I don't feel good in red lipstick (I like wearing bold lips sometimes, like Anime lip tar from OCC). But since it was free... I thought, lets try it! If Ena wears it, it can't be bad!! (<--typical, lol) And you guys, I would buy it with my own money too! It turned out this finish and colro are super wearable and look great! I find reds difficult to pull off, but this orange-red is really wearable and perfect for spring, to add some life to your makeup and coordinates! ♥ I am wearing it quite often now, around 3 times a week, and I really looooove it. If you are looking for a bright spring lip color, I really recommend this!
MORE REVIEWS? You can read more on makeupalley.com or the amazing Temptalia blog. They have some nice pictures here too. Also here! :D
That's all, I will put the creme d'nude and Heavenly swatches up next. Have a nice day.
