FOTD: Revlon Cherries in the Snow

Cherries int eh Snow -- such a classic fuchsia-red. Luscious!
 When I threw on this plum hoodie, I knew a soft pink like Revlon's Persian Melon wouldn't do, so I looked at the lipsticks in my quiver and there was Cherries in the Snow. This blue-toned red makes your teeth look brighter, and it works with my neutral skin.
Vivid Lips -- I toned them down a bit with a neutral lipstick
It really feels like a formal color to wear on your lips, so I toned it down with a bit of NYX lip stick in LaLa, which is a brownish nude.

Tip of the Day: Mixing lipstick can get you to the exact shade you want. And it's fun, like mixing paints!

Here are the lips after I toned them down

 Here's what I used:


Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment
Skyn Iceland Eye Pen
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentre
Skin79 Super+ BB Cream
Coty Loose Powder
Michael Marcus Concealer Wheel under eyes
Bare Escentuals Concealer in Bisque

Stila Palette from Costco

This stuff is a great base-skincare combo, and I use it daily!

High quality concealer wheel

Another daily fave - NYX's Butt Naked palette. Today I used the bottom left on, and the contour, top right


Urban Decay Primer Potion Original
Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ashe Blonde
Stila Palette from Costco Eye Shadow Left Row, top 3 shades
Stila Lash Visor Mascara in Black
L'Oreal HIP Gel Eye Liner in Black
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Waterproof Pencil in Black


NYX Butt Naked Palette, Terra Cotta blush shade on apples of cheeks
NYX Butt Naked Palette, Contour shade under cheekbones and on perimeter of forehead


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Cherries in the Snow

As I didn't want to be messing with layering two lipsticks at work, I chose to take along Revlon Colorburst Lip butter in Sugar Plum for touch-ups during the day. This worked well, as Cherries in the Snow stained my lips and the color lasted about 2/3 of the day, so the Sugar Plum acted as a moisturizing gloss.

What kind of lip will I wear today?  Tune in tomorrow to find out!
