hello you! welcome to my wee blog!

yay or nay: pink lipstick

with 9 comments

Hello all!

One of my favourite things to do is to raid my mom’s make-up drawer and try her make-up, experiment with new colours, etc. It’s a great way to discover what works for me!

Usually I’m not very successful because my mum has better skin and is fairer than me (no fair!), but recently I made off with a couple of new tubes of lipstick, including one curious shade of hot pink. Usually I stay away from the pink, but this time it called out to me for some reason.

I tried it on today, so far I still don’t have the courage to wear it outside the house though! What do you think? Maybe you could help me out and let me know it it’s a yay (“wear it out, it’s hot!”) or a nay (“you look like Cindy Lauper, except you’re not – throw it out and don’t touch it with a ten-foot pole!”)? It’s not the best photo, I look like a turtle and my hair’s funny, but let’s try to look past the flaws, shall we?

  5. Ah, the woes of us not-so-fair ladies! My two sisters are fairer than me, and I’ve been very conscious of the colours I wear. Totally unfair!

    Having said that, I’d go for a big resounding YAY! Coz ultimately, you can wear whatever you like, so long as you feel comfortable in it. And I really do think you can pull this off 🙂 Just go with smokey browns/greys (neutrals) for the eye, and you’re good to go methinks.

  6. Yes agreed! But I have to say that certain colours tend to pop on darker skin, so I say that God is fair. hehe.

    Thank you for the encouragement! 🙂
