Happy day, my dear readers! Today I’m going to talk about my tried but failed lip colours.
I like colour orange and peach a lot and have always been trying to incorporate these two colours into my makeup routine. However finding a suitable orange or peach colour lipsticks for my typical Asian yellow skin is not an easy task. (For reference I’m MAC NC20, skin colour light and strong yellow undertone).
When I had no experiences in makeup, I heavily depended on beauty gurus’ lip swatches and their favorite lip products.
When I saw the swatch videos by New Zeland beauty guru Shaaanxo (NYX black label number 109 India and number 174 nude) on You Tube, I was amazed with how she wore those preach nude colours effortlessly and I went online straight away to order those products and colours. You can imagine that how excited I was when I received the parcel.
However, reality bites! Once I put on the lipsticks, I could not help but notice how these colours washed me out and made my skin look dull.(Unfortunately Revlon Lip butter 065 Creamsicle, one of my free gift, also belongs to this category).
Same as the nude peach colours, the orange colour (Australis Matt lip cream RIO-D), which was well loved by Australian beauty guru Rachelleea( looks gorgeous on her) was also a colour I cannot go near, which made my skin more yellow. What a disappointment, Sigh!
Funny thing is not all orange and peach colours don’t suit me. To me, knowing what colours suit me is a try, fail, try again and bingo process and making notes of what haves failed me has helped me not to spending money on makeup products and/or colours that aren’t suitable for me. What is your process of finding your perfect colours and makeup products? Please leave your comments and I’d love to hear from you.
PS: all the lip products mentioned have nice quality, it’s only the colours that did not suit me.
Thanks for reading.
