Make-up: My Face - Lips

I love lipstick, this is one area of make-up where I really like brights (on me at least). The only thing is that I think it sometimes makes me look a bit too 'done up'. I have quite big lips and if I wear a bright colour it tends to overpower my face. But to be honest most of the time I don't care! For the times when I am feeling a little more subdued then I have a nice amount of neutral browns and pinks. But for today, I'm going to go bold and talk about...


MAC Matte (Ruby Woo) £13.50 - I love red lipsticks, I think they look really classic and beautiful on any skin tone or hair colour. It's one of those things that always ends up on 'essential beauty' lists and for good reason. Ruby Woo is a matte red with blue tones (so it makes your teeth look nice and white - magic). I really like a matte look lipstick but it can sometimes mean the lipstick is quite drying. This one doesn't dry my lips but it does take a little effort to put on. It is kind of like a crayon which is not ideal but it looks good! It is relatively long lasting, but I do find the bits nearer the inside of my mouth fade faster and sometimes leaves a kinda ombre lip look. Which is again, not ideal. But I think with most lipsticks you expect to have to touch up throughout the day.

So this is the final post for the 'My Face' part of my blog. Hopefully it will have given you an insight into my make-up style and favourites. From here on out I will be doing some reviews, some before and afters and maybe start doing some fashion-y (la-di-da) bits. Thanks to who ever is reading this, my blog has only be up for a small amount of time and I've been so surprised by the number of views and comments. Thanks!

  2. I'm so desperate to try a mac lipstick, I always see people rave about them! I have a love/hate relationship with lipstick, sometimes I put it on and love it and other times it just will not go right. The red really suits you :)

  8. Hey there! I just discovered your blog and am enjoying it so far! :) That lipstick color looks awesome on you! I, too, love lipsticks but I usually have trouble with it getting stuck to my teeth...do you have that problem? I'm always paranoid now that I have red all over my teeth and no one will bother to tell me!
