Hope everyone had a great Halloween Weekend!!
I was able to round up a last minute Halloween Costume this year: 1 pair of ears ($7.99)+ black tank top ($3-already have a million in my closet) + red tutu ($26) +black leggings ($3) and tada! I was Minnie Mouse!! The toughest detail to decide for my Minnie costume was which red lipstick to wear!!
Typically with my tanner skin tone, I tend to go for deeper burgundy tones when I want to wear red liptick. I don’t wear bright red lips very often but dressing up as Minnie Mouse definitely called for a fun, bright, true red lippie! I gathered some of my bright reds from my makeup collection and here were the finalists!!
Shiny bright candy red. Had to add a couple extra layers to achieve a true bright red. First layer showed up as a purpley-pink shade.
This is my go-to shade when I want dark lips! Gorgeous burgundy, deep wine shade. Dries matte but has a little bit of sparkle and dimension. As much as I love this shade, it didn’t seem Minnie-Mousey enough for me.
This lip color was a hand-me-down from my mom and I’ve been excited to use it! Excellent pigmentation and came out as a beautiful true rich red with an orange undertone.
Very similar in both shade and quality of pigmentation as the Nars lip color but felt a little creamier when applying. Gorgeous red shade with impressive pigmentation. Pointed tip of the lip crayon made it easy to apply and control.
Aren’t these swatches gorgeous?? But there had to be a winner!
And the winner was….
Nars Velvet Matte Lipcolor in Cruella!!!
