The Mythical Mood Lipstick?

Hey guuuuurls.

Have any of you guys heard of “Mood Lipstick”? It’s been around for quite some time.

I was at Sally Beauty Supply one boring day, when I saw a tube of blue lipstick screaming at me from a box.”Pick me! Pick me, Isabella! I’m special!!!” it squealed.

I walked over to see an untouched box of green, yellow, and blue lipstick.The box said “Mood Lips: 3.80”, so I grabbed that pitiful blue lipstick. Truthfully, I’ve always been curious to try on a REAL blue lipstick, but my mother says there’s nothing tackier.

SO. So. First off, this isn’t really a magical “mood” lipstick. It’s just a molecular reaction…you know, sciency stuff.There was a color chart on the box, so I KNEW which color I was getting.

It came in a tube full of gold cursive lettering, and a bullet that didn’t screw all the way down. I hate it when the bullet is half-poking-up all the time…it makes me nervous I’ll take a chunk out of the product.

On my hand it was an interesting, blue-berry sort of color, kind of blue and kind of purple. On my lips it wasn’t much different, and stained my lips AND my hand! EDIT: **After a couple minutes though..it began to change from pink, to bright, berry-fuchsia. Ooooo!

The texture is smooth, glossy, and moisturizing, and the smell reminds of a lot of Maybelline’s Baby Lips, like Sweet-tarts, but I can’t say whether I love this lipstick or not.

Over all, it’s a great three buck lipstick, but I probably won’t repurchase. The funny blue color in the tube DOES get a lot of looks in public, though! Hehe.

Happy Easter, lovelies!

Sweet Purple Smoke

Hi starlets and makeup mavens!

This is a look I wore yesterday, and it has to be one of my favorite ones I have ever done. ImageImageImage

The products I used on my eyes were the Urban Decay shadows in “Fishnet” and “Freakshow”, with Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara on my lashes. Fishnet is a light, buttery almost iridescent lilac, and Freakshow’s a purple matte color that I layered on my crease to give it that slightly smoky effect.

On my skin I’m wearing Dr. Jart SPF 45 PA+++ BB Cream, with Clinique Stay Matte pressed powder on top. :}

And, last but not least, on my lips I’m wearing MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Hot Gossip!

Just wanted to show ya what I wore, and wondered your thoughts! I named this look “Sweet Purple Smoke” because it’s like a sweet, subtle, slightly smoky eye that looks sort of sultry, but also whimsical and fun at the same time.

P.S: SORRY IF I’VE BEEN OVER-LOADING YOUR FEED WITH POSTS. I don’t have any homework today so that equals more blogging time! :}
