|Zinnia Lip Chic|
Today, I swapped the base colour from the palette for MAC Brule eyeshadow which I applied from lash line to above the crease. I did add a tiny bit of the base colour in the inner corner. I think this is maybe a little too muted though. I think being more adventurous with the placement of the brown and the green will be my next move.
|With MAC Brule eyeshadow and Guerlain Beige Nude lipstick|
So far I've tried three lipsticks with this palette; Chantecaille Lip Chic in Zinnia, Hourglass Femme Rouge in Fresco and Guerlain Kiss Kiss Beige Nude. I think the one that works best is the Guerlain Beige Nude (above) as it doesn't seem to complete with the other colours.
One thing I do really love in this palette is the cheek colour. I know it has been compared to NARS Orgasm, a colour that I have never owned nor wanted to, so I'm surprised by how much I like it. There's a gold shimmer through it but it's not overpowering which I really like.
So, what do you think? I know it's not my best effort and I would be interested to hear how you would work it.
