Painting the town…

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 18 - 2010

…Strawberry!

I was sent an Arbonne lipstick in shade, Strawberry (£16).  It’s an “almost red” that would suit ladies who fear a completely bold red lip, i.e. me.

The texture is smooth and it feels light on the lips.  I’ve been wearing this applied quite sheerly and blotted with my finger to create a softer matte stain-like finish and as a result, longevity has been impressive.  Applied more heavily, you can achieve a glossier effect, but the flipside is a more noticeably dehydrated lip.

It’s a fun shade for the summer, a pink-ed red that suits it’s name perfectly.

Excuse the silliness, I was being too lazy to go and pose in my usual spot properly!

What reds are you favouring for the Summer?

    Is it me or you’re getting prettier everyday? Pretty colour. I love that you did not use your usual spot. It’s nice to change at times. Have you perfected by the way your self portraits: as in, do you know exactly where to put your hear, what to look at, angle and so on to achieve that ‘perfect’ picture all the time?
    Ok, can you write another post? I am bored now.
    thanks ^_^ x

    Very nice colour! I’m not really into reds- well, I like looking at them but not wearing them. However, this shade I woud wear.

    Looks like I’m not the first nor will I be the last — the word that jumped into my head when seeing that on your lips was “GORGEOUS”!

  11. I love this whole look on you. Can you break down what you used on your eyes for me? =)

  12. @Jeweled Thumb – Not much, black gel liner smudged… then a little bit of green random loose pigment swiped over the top with the same smudgy brush and mascara! That’s it x
