I knew it wasn't anything big, and I was helping my boyfriend in his uni for grad ball stuff during the day, so I just wore a blouse and leather mini with a lemon cardi. I didn't get an outfit shot because I was running around like crazy in the morning so I wouldn't be late meeting my boyfriend, so here's an obligatory bathroom shot:
Love the way it emphasises my lack of sleep. =p
So the actual 'event' was a total non-event. We got a glass of champers and then were taken to a classroom, where an Urban Decay MUA demonstrated some looks using the Naked2 Palette. She was good, but wow she liked the dark colours. Her idea of a day look and my idea of a day look were nooot the same. Afterward, some people won little UD samples, not me unfortunately. :(
Gill and I both ended up purchasing a Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour (available online here for £14) in Adrenalin.
I love this style of lipstick, I have a Barry M one but their shades are all quite shimmery/glittery and definitely more glossy, whereas this felt like a lipliner and lipstick in one. It has a slight shimmer but isn't sticky or glossy, it goes on smoothly and doesn't seem to transfer half as much as my Barry M version. Here's a swatch:
And on my lips:
(colour can be built up)
So the event wasn't a total waste of time although it only lasted about forty minutes!! Just wanna show you my glitter overdose NOTD too that I 'wore':
(managed to squeeze my new ring in there too haha)
They are Models Own Pink Fizz with Models Own Magenta for the tips, sealed with Seche Vite top coat.
Hope you're all having a lovely week, haven't blogged much this week cause things have been hectic. What do you think of the 'crayon' style of lipsticks? And what do you think of my nails? Too much haha??
Let me know!
