I’m very much feeling pink lippy for this Summer, and have a lovely one here by YSL – it’s a YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Fuchsia Innocent! It’s very creamy, but not glossy, which is exactly what I wanted (so over gloss right now). The colour’s fab but I do wish it was a little bit more neon, however it’s great as a day time lippy and as it’s so creamy wears really well and lasts ages on. I applied three coats, blotting in-between each, to get the colour pay off I wanted.
I’ve kept the rest of my make-up pretty bare (no eye make-up) as I thought I was getting a facial later and didn’t want them to have to take a million layers off, but with a brightish lippy it’s kinda nice to keep the rest plain anyway. Plus, the no mascara look is so in right now!I’m also wearing Especially Escada, a lovely rich, rose fragrance. It’s perfect now the weather’s getting warmer as it’s lighter than my usual Thierry Mugler Angel but is also quite opulent in its own right, and once applied lasts the whole day on me! It’s probably quite a mature scent, however I tend to go for those anyway so it works for me..
I’ve recently discovered that whilst I thought I was allergic to perfume because of my eczema, In actuality I’m just allergic to Eau de Toilettes! As they have a high alcohol content, you see. Eau de Parfums on the other hand are fine as they are pure and not diluted with alcohol! After years of only wearing perfumes occasionally and for special occasions, I now can wear them daily with no consequence. Wish I had discovered this earlier.. Oh well, better late than never.
