When it comes to choosing lipsticks and lipglosses, and very often nail enamels, I always pick coral! I first wore a coral colour on my nails about 5 years ago and it quickly became a constant in my unique look. These two coral lipsticks are currently my favourites. I got them in Indonesia and Singapore while traveling overseas in December.
We don’t have the Maybelline Bold Matte range in South Africa yet and I really hope it comes this way. I found this lipstick in a small pharmacy in Kuta Beach, Bali. I fell in love with how bright this lipstick is and I didn’t have a matte coral yet. It does dry my lips out a little bit so I make sure I keep vaseline or a clear lipgloss with me to apply over it. This shade is called MAT1. I love it so much I asked my mom to bring me another one when she lands in 2 weeks.
This is the first MAC Sheen Supreme lipstick I have bought. I love its creamy texture and how it feels on my lips. The colour called out to me instantly while I was standing at the MAC counter in duty free in Singapore. I had first thought I would get a pink lipstick and ended up leaving with this one. This shade is called Full Speed.
Interestingly enough I heard that a study had been conducted last year in South Africa and many women said they never wore coral. I think many women choose “safer” shades when it comes to lipstick and lipgloss and opt for nudes or light pinks. I say be daring, you only live once. Wear a coral lipstick and go out for the evening with the girls. I can guarantee you you will receive lots of compliments and you will find yourself feeling more confident.
Today I felt like having brighter nails for the week ahead. Everyone who knows me well knows I am obsessed with the colour coral! So today’s mani features Sally Hansen’s Temptation. This nail polish has great angled brush for easy application and the enamel is super shiny when it dries. I just love it!
Usually I get dressed up on Christmas day and wear a dress or skirt to family lunches. Today I felt quite laid-back and decided to rather just dress casually for lunch. The weather is overcast and drizzling and all I want to do is curl up under a blanket and watch TV all day.
Today’s casual OOTD was:
baseball top (PnP clothing)
boyfriend jeans (Woolworths)
glitter slop/sandals (Woolworths)
assorted silver jewellery (inherited, Gems & Jewels and YDE)
For my make-up I chose to do neutral eyes, bronzed cheeks and a bright coral lip. As for my hair I tied it up in a ponytail.
I did a little bit of online shopping from the comfort of my couch this weekend. Online shopping will never be the same as browsing through the actual store and seeing the items up close but it is handy … Continue reading →
