Note #175 // The New Thing: Curly Lashes, Perky eyes and A Nude Lip for Dark Skin

Now, I love a bold lip.

There is no better 'I woke up like this' moment that occurs in life than when you apply a slick of MAC Ruby Woo and feel like you can slay the world *sashays down the catwalk of life*.

I posted on Instagram a few weeks ago that I had made a quick dash to Nars in my lunch break. Note to self: lunchtime shopping trips to Selfridges are dangerous. I only went in to pick up a radiant creamy concealer and left with that, a translucent powder and a lip pencil. Luckily I had a bit of a gift card left to spend.

One of the things I'd been looking for for some time is an everyday neutral lip to wear, but what's nude to a lot of skin tones out there look absolutely ridiculous against this chocolate skin. But Nars came through with this satin lip pencil in the shade Het Loo

In actual fact, I don't pay too much attention to make up. I'm more of a "I have seven minutes before I need to leave the house, what can I do to make myself look presentable" kind of woman. I must have been living under a rock not to notice the influx of lip pencils on the market, but sweet lord is it love. Having a product that easily does the job of both lip liner and lipstick is absolutely awesome, because frankly, "ain't nobody got time fo' that."

And while we're on the subject of make up love, I can't not mention my two new loves - Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and Benefit's Roller Lash. The concealer - I use the shade Amande - comes with much acclaim from, basically all the world, and rightly so. It's got to a point where I can put a dab of this under my eyes, fill my brows and apply some mascara and I'm out the door. It's pretty much a confidence boost in a glass tube and I love it.

Finally, Benefit's Roller Lash. I only just learnt how to apply fake lashes at the beginning of this year (*sings* "I'm a big girl now"), and then this little product comes into existence making my lashes all long and curled and pronounced, without a clump in sight. Won't be getting out the lashes any time soon then.
