I bought both of these lipsticks at the beginning of the month, whilst out with Sarah (@Sarahln). And neither of which I have worn yet! Isn't that awful?
First up I got Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour in Mod Pink (£16) described on the Bobbi Brown website as "A bright pink". I guess this is something that I am going to wear on a daily basis, to add a bit of colour to my face. That is, when I remember that I have it! I love it. It's such a beautiful colour. I did have other pictures of this lipstick, but they keep uploading to the blog at funny angles. So I gave up after the fifth attempt.
And I also succumbed to MAC Impassioned (£13.50), which is an amplified lipstick that is described as "amped up fuchsia". I initially wanted a bright Spring/Summer lipstick - and boy did I get that! But having got this one home, I've been a little cautious about what to pair it with. Hence the reason why I haven't worn it yet.
Needless to say, the lovely MUA Kenneth Soh was on hand and gave me some fab advice (and a bit of confidence) on how to actually wear it. His suggestion was to pat it onto lips with my finger and add a touch of gloss to finish the lip look. Keep brows defined and pair with just a simple slick of mascara. Keeping the look very fresh and all about the pout. So as I am off out tomorrow night to see Peter Kay, that is the look I am going to try out. The Boy will be surprised!
Please tell me that other people buy things, get them home and then are too scared to use them? I really hope I'm not on my own here...
