Lip Stuff I Brought To Scotland: Pictures, Swatches, FOTD and OOTD!




I was at a wedding this weekend, and I was planning to show you ALL the makeup I brought away with me... but I'm far too embarrassed. Think a whole makeup bag for each day I was there and you wouldn't be far wrong. And no, of course I hardly wore any of it. It was a classic case of bad - or no - planning; chucking everything into my case the night before I left, after a few glasses of wine and a house margarita.
The one thing I knew I wanted was a hot pink colour on my lips, to go with the belt on my dress. So I managed to bring 10 products along with me to choose from.



And of course, in the end I only wore one.


I was really impressed with this lippie. I love the Colordisiac and Ultra Colour Rich lines from Avon but this is the first Moisture Seduction lipstick I've tried, and it was really lovely: very soft and creamy, not drying in the least but, as the name implies, nice and moisturising on the lips. Mine feels quite balmy on the lips - something I associate with sheerer products, but this also carries a hefty colour punch. I'd be interested in trying more to see if this applies across the range.
Here's how it looked on the day.
Look closely and you can just see Mr Fluff's kilt! Oh and in case you're wondering, my dress is from Coast and my shoes are from Rockport.


What lipsticks are you loving right now?

Thats quite a few hot pink lipsticks, wow.
MAC Bombshell and See sheer as well as Chanel Rouge Allure in 07/Genius, are my current lipstick loves.

I think you should totally do a massive pic heavy post on all the makeup you took with you.
Collection or going away makeup posts with loads of pictures are amazing, if only to stare at the pictures going 'ohh pretty, must have the pretty'.

You looked fab! A girl can never have to much to choose from! Must try them lipsticks from Avon heard Wayne Goss raving about them also!

Sarah Lanagan said...

You look so lovely in your out fit! I went into Rockport to try and find nice shoes but there was nothing in there that was like the ones you had in your post about them. *Sad Face*

SaraK said...

I can not believe you have this many hot pink lipsticks? And i'm assuming these are only the ones that made the grade to pass over the water - and that there may be hundreds more in a back room some more. I don't even have this many lip products! Including vaseline... oh dear.

I would like to point out that the majority of these are budget buys and one or two were given to me, and therefore I refuse to feel guilty! xo

Amy said...

Look at all of the choices! I'm so indecisive. They are all pretty though.

I like nude colours and peachy colours for my lips. Nothing too drastic, I'm one of those girls who likes to emphasise my eyes and play my lips down.
