Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend. Our weekend has been spent with family; my brother and his girlfriend are home for the weekend so yesterday we had a delicious family lunch followed by a few drinks – so much for dry January, hey?!
Today, for day eight of my Simply Lippy challenge, I’m trying out a new lipstick shade that I’ve never worn before. My gorgeous sister-in-law bought this for me during the week to help me on my journey of wearing 365 lipsticks on each of the 365 days of 2017. It was so thoughtful of her because god knows, I’m going to need all the help I can get to pull this off!
As I’ll be spending the day with her today, I decided to wear this lipstick in her honour and I’m very excited because as you all know, I love trying out new lipsticks.
This lippy is a satin finish lipstick from MAC, in a shade called Snob, which I’d actually never heard of before. As with all satin lipsticks from MAC, the consistency is very creamy, the colour pay off is strong and it isn’t drying on the lips. Just some of the many reasons why I’m such a huge fan of MAC lipsticks.
I would describe it as a pink shade with a purple undertone, and therefore slightly stronger toned than a regular pastel pink. The opaque formula is buildable too meaning you can wear it quite pale, or you can layer it up to make the colour stronger.
Because this is a soft shade, I’ve kept the rest of my makeup very soft too, opting for my current favourite foundation, Armani Luminous Silk (review coming soon), and a soft highlight from my new Becca face palette (review also coming soon).
For now, I’m off to enjoy another day with family so I’ll love you and leave you, but will catch you all tomorrow for day nine.
