Hello and I’m back with another face!
As promised, this LOTD features the 2 pink numbers that I had just spoken about in an earlier entry – the MAC Sweet Sentiment Mineralized Blush and No Faux Pas lipstick.
Unlike recent LOTDs, the focus this time around isn’t on the eyes but rather the cheeks and lips. Though if you hone in to the eyes becuase it’s your preference, by all means go ahead too ;)
Though I do want to give some mention to the products used on the eyes, but I’ll save that for a little later on in this entry.
The look is very clean and simple. I want to say it’s an everyday look but I did try wearing this consecutively and by Day 5 my lips were crying out for a break from the matte lipstick. It’s not the lipstick itself but rather I guess my lips could only go so long without a smooth nourishing and buttery lip product while facing a longwearing matte that doesn’t exactly dry your lips out but doesn’t lend moisture either.
It’s a shame because wearing this feels very K-Drama to me, somehow, like the approach that koreans would take where professional makeup is concerned – clean and light but with a good dose of color.
The red eye strikes again, please don’t mind that…
I could ramble on and on about this look which was what I did when I first drafted it up but after re-reading what I wrote, I deleted it all and decided to just let pictures speak for themselves.
After all, it’s quite straightforward what a lovely vibrant pink lip No Faux Pas is and what a nice flush of color Sweet Sentiment can be so, here you go, the look!
Sweet Sentiment actually carries a soft reflective sheen. It’s hardly much of a shine to be called a sheen but it’s definitely not a matte blush either.
While not exactly the star of the entry here, I want to take a quick second to talk about the eyes.
It features some products I’ve yet to give spotlight to on here, I have no idea why myself, but yet are products I really enjoy using. They aren’t much to shout about, as you can see, but they are workhorse basics that get the job done and are there when I need to rely on them.
For the eyeshadows, I used the browns from Urban Decay’s Naked 2 Basics palette which I’ve dropped mentions of for awhile now but given that it’s permanent (I believe, right?) I haven’t gotten around to featuring it.
You know the fate that permanent products get on here, heh.
The eyeliner (on the upper lash line) is Eyeko’s Eye Do Liquid Liner, something I’ve had sitting around in my stash for awhile but I’ve only started using of late.
I don’t know what I delayed opening this but I absolutely love it – it’s gives such a perfect slick, sharp, crisp and dark line that I really can’t stop raving about it. If you haven’t tried this and you like your liner flick perfect to a tee then you need to give this a look!
For the liner on the bottom lashline I think I may have finally found something to replace the position MAC’s Powerpoint Liner in Engraved had in heart for the longest time (p.s. if you don’t know, that’s the liner I almost always use on my lower lashline for almost 5 years now) and that’s Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Pencils.
I have on Zero here but I love both Zero and Perversion, depending on how deep and dark I want to go that day (Perversion being the darker one)
So, there you have it! Sorry to end of this entry with a creepy red-ish eye but yes, here’s a feature on these MAC pinks and also a little mention on some staples that I have been using and loving of late. I know they deserve an entry for themselves, I’ll try to get on that as soon as I can!
In the meanwhile do check these MAC lovelies out and have a great Christmas celebration you guys!
