Orange-y FOTD

Hey Dolls :)

This has been on my 'To Blog' list for a while - and finally found the courage to unveil my orange lips! As I mentioned in my last Illamasqua post buying an orange lipstick is something I uuuuhmed and aaaahed over for ages untill eventually a MA at the counter let me try Perilous on - it was love at first look...

MAC Studio Fix Fluid
MAC MSF Natural
NARS Laguna
Illamasqua Bronzing Duo

EYES

LIPS

Illamasqua Perilous Lipstick

What do you think? Is the orange lip a trend to be left on the catwalk or is it wearable day to day? I personally love it but understand why it may not be everyones cup of tea...it's a little intimidating at first!

Lots of Love

  2. Love the lipstick but perhaps you should try it with more neutral colors on the eyes? I think that with a blue eyeshadows it is just a little over the top, but the lipstick itself looks great on you!

  3. May - Thank you :D It is definitely a summer colour!

    SummerBabe - I'm not wearing blue eyeshadow just black khol, maybe it's just the way the camera has picked the colours up

  4. You look lovely & can pull it off. I think it is just too orange for me though, I can do a peachy colour but not that full on. It is avery pretty colour though & so sunny and summery ♥ xxx

  10. SummerBabe - No don't worry luv, thank you for your comment :)

    Rachel - I know i'm loving it so much!! Thank you - I wasn't sure if I could pull it off :D I quite like it - it's my first illamasqua lipstick so have nothing to compare it too - it's quite matte and you do need to apply a balm or else it can settle into the cracks of your lips but it isn't drying and lasts quite a long time

    Heather - Thank yoou!! The one shade I can't get away with are nudes, they make me look terrible!

    Lillian - I know it's such a happy colour! Thank you so much :D

  11. It's well bright but I don't think the way you wear it makes it shocking, it actually quite suits you :)

    To be honest when the trend seems to be with neon nails this summer (China Glaze poolside) then a big bright orange lipstick is probably a must have in this summer's makeup purse ! Good on you for daring x

  17. I love an orange lip! You should try rocking it with only mascara on your eyes, then the focus would all be on the lips - fab! :)
