Louboutin does Lip Lacquer!

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN METALINUDES LOUBILAQUE GROUP

 

So should Christian Louboutin just stick to shoes or has the company hit the mark with these lip lacquers? I think its a hit – the bottles are pure class and give me a mermaidy-sea-ish vibe. The nude tones are also a nice change from the regular color palette! These will set you back about 90 USD though 🙂 let me know if you would pick this up or give it a miss!

Autumn Hue I Paid Double the Actual Price for! Mac’s Vegas Volt (Amplified) Review

Although I am very annoyed I had to pay 35 USD (when its' listed price is 16 USD) I cannot complain about the tone or quality or final effect. Highly recommended but don' t overpay and order it online instead!

Although I am very annoyed I had to pay the equivalent of 35 USD (when its’ listed price is 16 USD) I cannot complain about the Vegas Volt’s tone or quality or overall effect. Highly recommended for the ultimate high fashion look but don’ t overpay and order it online instead!

Hello beauties!

Depressing winter is on its’ way  – what better way to fight the blues than with a nice flash of coral?! When its’ far too bright and sunny in the summer, in my opinion, corals can be a tad bit blinding on our terrain. But when its’ dark and dreary and everyone is dressed up dark and dreary, I think a flash of color really makes you stand out of the crowd 🙂

Although I am super annoyed that I had to pay an equivalent of 35 USD while its’ listed for 16 USD online (bought it in Islamabad ,city of shops that charge whatever their owners’  feel like depending on the brand of the handbags their regular clientele carries -_-) – I am still happy with my  only casual wear lipstick this autumn which is Mac’s Vegas Volt (from the Amplified range).

I absolutely love the color, it gives a very high fashion finish if you put it on properly 🙂 It’s not too neon so you can wear it wherever – if you need to look professional and understated – after application dab on a bit of your nude colored lippie to tone it down or to pink it out mix it with your favorite red (for ideas see my previous post Free Tack Pass and Emergency Disposable Red)

The texture is creamy which is a big plus and it holds it fort (mostly) for a couple of hours – you do need to keep touching it up  – If you don’t it, dry patches of lipstick will be formed on the outer corner of your lips 😛 So if you are not big on touching up your makeup during the course of the day (or an outing) steer clear of this! Also, you must use lip pencil with this to prevent it bleeding out – especially if you have a well defined bow.

Great lipstick, but I got close to zero value for money – if I had gotten this for 16 USD I would be much happier. Hmpf 😛

Hope this helps girls! and let me know what your autumn lippie is 🙂

Love,

WBVANITY

Here we go brown beauties, the Sephora Creme Lip Stain 01. Thank me later 😉

Hello Ladies,

There comes a day, in every girl’s life,  when she needs to outshine that bitchy rich girl she knew back in school at a partay or a wedding or maybe a brunch.

I dislike day-time beauty competitions because its’ almost impossible to to feign natural beauty (everyone can see you’ve contoured -_-) But in this context, looking tacky/obviously dolled up is permissible because everyone is doing it  and you’ll look anemic if you go too far in your pursuit of the cosmetic yet ‘natuwally beautiful’ face.

So you saunter to your room and take out all  your ammo. You slap it on (very judiciously because you visit WBVANITY enough to know better 😉 but there is something missing. You look classy – but your face still looks awfully similar to the way it does the other 365 days in a year. You’re missing the glamour. And that just won’t do because you need to look like a completely different person.

So whats that one thing, that is going to give you the straight-off-the-catwalk-but-so-effortlessly-stunning look? Good ol’ red on the lips.

First of all, remember not to shy away from using it, especially if its’ a daytime event. Take it out of the freezer (where you have been preserving it) and put it on your dressing table so that you remember you have the option of wearing it every time you go out.

Our beautiful brown complexions get the extra zing from bright lipsticks, especially red and maroon. Although this post focuses on making you look extra-ceptional for a semi-formal/smart casual event, do remember that that if you have the right shade of red lipstick, you can wear it to work, to shop, basically anywhere without looking OTT. You will definitely turn a lot of heads in the process so steer clear if you are still getting used to people staring all the time.

Like my hunt for the right foundation for our skin-tones, the quest for the perfect red lipstick spanned over 6 years and three continents. Luckily for you, my find this time is a budget one. Although I never recommend economizing on makeup, in this case I strongly suggest you go for it even if you are a little ambivalent towards mid-range brands.

*drum roll*

SEPHORA Creme Lip Stain 01 Always Red!!!!

It looks great across the pale-brown to dark brown color spectrum of desi skin and will DEFINITELY set you apart, even from your annoying,Tom-Ford-lipcolor- owning competitor This is the one lip color you can buy without trying on. Its’ look will vary on each girl (depending on her shade of brown you have 🙂 but is guaranteed to look classy. For 13 dollars, you’re practically getting paid to look good.

Application for Dummies

Be careful during application (one layer is fine for the day-time, for evening  outings wear two). Top it off with a dab of vaseline after it settles before heading out to offset the slightly sticky,matte texture. Remember this step especially if you are prone to dry lips.

Remember to put foundation on your lips before applying it for super zing.

In the heat, unfortunately, like all other lipsticks this may  bleed out a little, so keep an eye on your lips with discreet peeks into your compact throughout the outing 😉 Using foundation as a base and a lip pencil can help contain it to a certain extent but lay off the pencil again if its’ a day time outing (looks too dolled up).

If you want to wear it out for casual outings/ at work, top it off with a dash of nude lipstick (and lay off the foundation on the lips pre-application) – it’ll tone down the oomph factor but still look alluring.

I’m sorry that this isn’t available in Pakistan yet, but pick one up on your next vacation or  ask a friend or family member to get it for you.

Enjoy the Tack Ladies!

And remember to make-up well even when your bitchy competitors aren’t around 😉

Love,

WBVANITY
