FOTD: Spunky Pink


Wow! Looks like many of you ladies are in search of a GPS! haha, some of you asked me which portable GPS I have, it's the GARMIN NUVI 350, and it comes with its own carrying case, the BF knows I get lost all the time, so I was really happy he got it for me a couple of Christmas's ago...and yes, I DO love hand helds and gadgets! I don't know why but I am really into electronics and games, glad you ladies pointed that out from "What's in my purse". And I do love the iPhone! It's the best phone i've had, it's really a one-stop shop for me, I can check weather, maps, email, go online, watch YouTube, ALL on it! So it's my "window to the outside world". I had a T-Mobile MDA phone before, and it was cool for a hot minute, but then I never got reception and couldn't go on certain websites.

Anyway, I did a look today with luscious pink lips because I was itching to do a FOTD using the Lancome Lipgloss in "Seashell" I just got, I am in love with that gloss! It's super pretty, yet the perfect pink and sheer at the same time! I can't wait to pair it with the "Desert Pink" lipstick I am waiting to get!

I kept the eyes REALLY, REALLY neutral, using "Provence" pigment and two eyeshadows, and I played up the cheeks with Milani Blush in "Cherries on Top" to match the lips.

MAC l/s in "Up the Amp", with Lancome Lipgloss in "Seashell"

What I used:

- Camellia Rose Skin Soothing Primer (love this stuff! review coming soon!)
- MadMinerals "Medium Golden" Mineral Foundation


- Milani Blush in "Cherries on Top"

- MAC Paint Pot in "Soft Ochre" as base all over lid
- MAC "Provence" Pigment all over the lid
- Milani e/s in "Almondine" on lower half of the lid just above the crease
- MAC e/s in "Patina" (my favorite neutral eyeshadow) on outer-V and contour
- Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black
- Covergirl LashBlast Mascara
- NYC eyebrow set

- MAC lipstick in "Up the Amp"
- Lancome Lipgloss in "Seashell"

Also, Aquadisiac wanted to see swatches of the Jane Blush in "Blushing Earth" and the Milani "Luminous" Blush as I found them to be strikingly similar...the Jane blush was more shimmery and peachy, and "Luminous" had a slight shimmer but more of a salmon pink/peach.

Very Nice! I love the pink lips. I don't think I can pull that off like you. Lovely!!!

I love gadgets and games also!! I have been meaning on the getting a iphone, I would love but it's so pricey still.

I the MACBook Air just came out the other day, I would love to have that!

But again, lovely fotd. They all are!

Vanessa, I LOVE the pink on you! Isn't that lipgloss the cutest? It's one of my new favorites!!

It was rainy and dreary in SF last week and when I wore it to work, it just made me feel like the sun was out and spring was here!

aquadisia said...

So cute! I love the cat eye! You rock the fuschia lipcolor so well. Thanks for swatching the blushes... I'll definitely have to go with Luminous because the Jane blush is so glittery.

Decorating my apt is still a work in progress. It needs accessories! So far, all we have are the basics. I'm almost hesitant to spend more money on decorations because I know we'll be moving again in a year. But I'll def share pics with you soon :) Have a great weekend!

that is the hottest pink i've ever seen on lips. i think i might stop by m.a.c. real soon..

LS said...

That's a great look! You're lips are very much accentuated with the very neutral/light colors you used on your eyes. Lovely as usual.

Oh and judging from the stuff in your purse I can say that you really really really like/love your bf. Did I say really? REALLY?! =)

Hi Vanessa!
I hope this comment doesn't get lost amongst your other comments b/c I just wanted to share with you that CVS is having a sale on the Maybelline Minerals that you talked about! If you buy a mineral foundation you get a mineral powder, concealer, or blush FREE! so basically it's 2 for about $10 instead of $10 each! Of course after reading your review on it, I went to get it and was lucky enough to spot this deal so I just wanted to pass it along to you and your readers. =)
Come check out my page when you get a chance. Thanks for motivating me to share beauty information with others! =)
