Un-Impassioned

Hey Dolls :)

Of late, my favourite way to wear lipsticks is to pat on the teeniest amount using my finger, almost like a stain. For the last couple of days I've been particularly enjoying doing this with MAC's Impassioned. Normally, impassioned is gorgeously bright however, it looks equally as pretty sheered out...


I love how different the colour looks when used so sparingly. Also, because it's so bright, impassioned can take a lot of work to wear, from prepping my lips to using a liner, however with this there is no hassle, I can just pat it on and go!

I'd love to know which lipsticks are your favourite to use like this - another one of mine is Revlon's cherries in the snow...but I suppose you could probably of guessed that anyway!

Lots of Love
Nicola

  1. Your make up is always so flawless! I do this with Mac Snob... I don't think I suit the colour when it's applied properly but when using it sparingly like this it's really nice! xx

  2. I just purchased Impassioned (along with another brightie, Pink Nouveau) the other day and have to agree. It is so gorgeous and bright, but definitely looks great when applied sparingly as well.

  7. Great idea! I always forgot to do this and lots of lipsticks end up gathering dust -_-

  8. I am the same too, I like patting my lipsticks on even though its a nude. I have a fear of wearing bright bold colours so patting the colours on gently really does the trick. you look so pretty here :)
