WHY NC40s SHOULDN'T WEAR...

MAC FLESHPOT LIPSTICK!

Omg, it looks horrendous doesn't it!?!? I'm not even sure if a NC35 would be able to pull off this shade alone! lol :) I think the only use for it alone is for the pale gals that want a nude lip for a dramatic smoky look! ^_^ (not a good way to model the bang bang bi0tch earrings lol)

Okay so what am I going to do with this lipstick now that it looks awful on me? (I knew it would be too light when I bought it online, but I just had to prove myself okay!)

So here are my bare lips:

I don't have a very defined lipline and they aren't terribly pigmented.

The lipstick.. okay so when it's lighter than the birch veneer it has got to be terrible on me! lol

The lipstick on my hand with flash..

The lipstick on my hand without flash.. Gosh, you can seriously see my veins! xD

And here is a close up of the lipstick on my lips! Sorry the picture isn't as focused, I didn't realize it when I was taking the picture.

So I saw a post that Livia did last week and I decided to try it out on myself! ^_^ And it worked like a charm.. I took MAC On Display Lipglass to lighten the color of it whenever I apply it over the fleshpot lipstick.

A dark plummy-raspberry color. It's really gorgeous and leaves a wine color on your lips when worn alone :) Unfortunately it only suits the fall/winter seasons.

Here it is on my lips! ^_^ I really like how the picture captures the gold sparkles :D

So I apply FLESHPOT on my lips first and then I take the lipgloss and put some on my finger (don't wanna contaminate the applicator especially with pale nude lipstick) and spread it out evenly on my lips! And here is the result :D

A pretty pinky color! It's actually pretty wearable after I add the super dark vampy gloss.

And without flash it looks even better :D Please excuse my little mustache hairs, I need to touch up on that lol!!

But I totally love the result! I'm still undecided if I want to keep this lipstick or if it'll end up on my blogsale.. only time will tell! ^_^ Thought I would post something different and will benefit the tan girls like me that are too afraid to buy certain nude lipsticks.. this is what you can do if it doesn't work out for you :D

I'm totally on a roll this week with the posts! I've got tons more planned.. *sigh* I guess that means I have too much makeup products LOL...

<333

P.S. Linda I got my car! :D I am totally bummed... the clutch on this one is totally different from my RSX.. T_T I hope I can drive it okay and get used to it!

    But I love the pink you were able to make with it. Fleshpot is like putting concealer on your lip if you ask me...ehh.

  9. It really doesn't look that bad! Nudes dont work for me generally because my skin is a little darker most of the time :)

  26. I have Fleshpot, also. At first, I found myself in the same predicament as you. But you know what? It works great if you put a little bit of balm on your lips first, swipe Fleshpot over your lips, then add whichever color lipstick you want on top! Especially if your lips are already pigmented as much as mine are :p

    You look so silly cute in your pic, hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think what you did by adding the darker lip colour on top of such a pale lipstick, is genius! Great idea, good usage luck!

  28. It looks great with the lipgloss over it. I cannot pull off super nude lips...it makes me look like I ate powdered donuts and forgot to wipe off my mouth.

  31. LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

    Lindah, you totally made my day with that photo!

    You're so cute!

  32. Congratulations on your new car! Lucky girl :)
    Your first picture is priceless Linda LOL. I think it would look good on you alone if you did a dark smokey eye. Even though i love nude lippies (like concealer stuff) I wouldn't wear it without any dark eye makeup - it just looks weird. But I love how MAC On Display changed the lip colour more pinkish. I'm going to get MAC Fleshpot next! I've been eyeing it for sometime now.

  33. LOL I agree! Great photo :D
    It looks so much better layered with a lipgloss!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I agree with Karen, maybe it can work with a really dark eye makeup, but if not, topping it with the gloss made it gorgeous. =) Cute first pic!!! LOL. =P
