My blog hasn't been in the festive swing of things but I hope all is well for everyone in 2013 thus far!
Throwing on a quick blog-ish update, I have placed most of the sticky post (Brief Baby Break) under a 'jump', which is only visible from the main blog URL. Since it is quite old news and would only be informative for those who haven't visited in a long while, I didn't want to taking up that much main-page space anymore.
Though that's not much to shout about so... moving on!
Though a seemingly random and simple swatch feature, it actually brings me great joy to do simple things like digging up makeup pieces to photograph and swatch.
This one is a particularly happy one because I had been gifted my very first Bobbi Brown lipstick by Mag (makeupstash). Thanks so much Mag!
According to Mag's post about it, this is one of the three shades that come with the travel exclusive Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color Trio set.
The set consists of this pink-coral tone, a lighter nude shade (Bare Pink) and a deeper slightly plummy red (Plum Rose). All 3 shades are lovely in color and pigmentation pay-off, as you would see in Mag's swatches.
Unfortunately I haven't got to wear this out yet so I can't comment on lasting ability, how it feels on etc. Though you can bet this will be one of the first few things I reach for when I get into the habit of (and have the luxury of time for) putting makeup on again!
In the meanwhile, behold, Bobbi Brown's Rich Lip Color in Sweet Nectar.
I must declare, my pictures are a wee bit deceiving and I am not certain why. Perhaps the color somehow doesn't pick up well for my camera? Maybe the lighting?
But in any case, the lipstick has a little more beige-pink in it as opposed to the coral-red it looks above.
Despite how intense a red it seems to be in my swatch above, it is actually more coral and subdued, or should I say more wearable. This shade gives a good amount of color to the face and attention to the lips without being too bold about it. I would say it sits well for me with day time looks which would even work for a simple night-look.
I can't wait to wear it and snap some pictures of how it looks on!
Until then, hope everyone's doing well and thanks for reading still, despite my inactivity! :)
