7-Day Lipstick Challenge: Lavender.

Confession: So when I listed purple as one of the colors for this challenge, I actually meant lavender because I don't actually own any purple lipsticks. Go figure. 

Out of my two lavender lipsticks (the other is Barry M 29 Palest Lavender), I chose MAC Blooming Lovely from the Liberty of London collection that was released early last year. I'd normally wear it sheerly by blotting the color down or pairing it with a pink lipgloss to make it more wearable on me but for the sake of wearing lavender lips for this challenge, I applied it full-force today :)



Blooming Lovely is a light-medium mauvey lavender with an Amplified finish.

(It actually looks a lot more lavender and bright in real life. Luckily, my camera wasn't able to completely capture how terrifying it really looked on me.)

Countdown until anticipated completion of challenge: 4 days.

  3. Ohh this looks pretty and doesn't need blotting down as it's understated. Very sweet :)

  4. This looks really pretty on you :) On camera it looks like a very blue toned baby pink lipstick. Do you have Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Lilac Pastelle? I think it would look really nice over this lipcolor ^^

  5. It looks really pink as a lipstick, but it's lilac when you apply. I think it's good on you, esp if you're celebrating an occasion. I imagine you can mix it w/diff lip colors to get that lilac tinge. It's a really precious color :)

  12. @AngelicBetrayal: Yup, I do have that one. I've worn it over Blooming Lovely before but it makes it a really intense lavender...pretty but a bit too much on my skin tone I think :)

    @Aranza: That one is so pretty, though! But don't worry, I think I'd be afraid of wearing that one too, to be honest. You're not the only one :)

    @Donna: Thank you so much! :D
