I’m usually quite ‘safe’ in the lipstick shades that I choose to wear and a bright red is about the boldest shade in my collection. However, more recently I’ve been admiring more striking and cheeky colour ranges.
As a result of my new cravings I decided to purchase 17’s Honey Blossom Lasting Fix Lipstick, it's a gorgeous slightly orange and gold shimmery lipstick. Its not too bold but its also not like the usual natural shades I would have chosen in the past, a good first step I think :) . The lipstick is very pigmented and long lasting without making my lips feel dry.
( the colour is a little more daring in real life :) )
Whilst at the 17 makeup stand I was drawn in by their current promotion (I’m a sucker for these!) with any two 17 purchases you receive a free ‘All About Nude’ palette. The other 17 item that took my fancy was nude shade lip liner in the colour ‘Fawn’. I am slightly disappointment with this liner though, I didn't get the chance to swatch it in the store as the tester was missing and I didn't realise how shimmery it was.
So all together these two purchases qualified for the free ‘All About Nude’ summer palette.
The summer palette contains two eye shadows, a lipstick and a cream blusher. The first eye shadow is a fabulous golden shimmery pink and the second is a deep bronzy gold. The blush is similar in shade slightly to the golden pink eye shadow and the lipstick is a deep brownish red.
I can’t wait to give these a try :) What lipstick shades do you usually go for? Do you have any bolder suggestions for me :) ? I'd love to try out some other shades
