Some lipstick swatches, teasing comb and new wedges!

.

So I received my order from Cherry Culture, I got mostly more of the NYX Round Lipsticks, I ended up returning two of them because just by looking at it the color was off from the swatches on their site and was a tad bit too dark for me.

So here are some swatches and comparisons, I wanted to compare Rea, Circe, and Fleshpot and Myth from MAC because they all looked similar or at least in the same color family, but I was surprised how dark Rea is compared to the other ones! Also "Peach" is NOT that dark, it's actually more of a dirty rose, like a pink mauve color, totally wearable, for some reason it looks deep red here, but it's a pink!



I like "Sunflower" even though the swatch does NOT match on the website, it's an orangey/coral color that goes perfect with my orange shirts. It's nice and soft, not bright like MAC's "Vegas Volt" lipstick which was BRIGHT ORANGE.



I know some of you probably don't like "Fleshpot" from the recent Heatherette Collection because it makes some look "washed out", but I love it, especially paired with smokey eyes. Arashi asked whether it would work as a lip base in comparison to MAC's "Lip Erase" and I honestly do think it works well in place of the lip erase; to neutralize the color, although I do find MAC lipsticks to be a bit drying on me, I usually just put a layer of chapstick before I apply their lipsticks and top it off with some gloss. So if you wish to use it as a base (as I know some people don't want to stick their fingers in a pot like you would if you had MAC's "Lip Erase") then this can be a great alternative, or at least any neutral lippie like Myth will do too.

I am also selling a BRAND NEW MAC eyeshadow in "Steamy", most of you MAC Addicts have this color already I am sure, but just in case you don't, I am selling it in case you are interested. I have a similar color so I obviously have no use for it...$15 INCLUDING SHIPPING, email me if you are interested.



I went to good ol Sally's (Sally's Beauty Supply Store), and picked me up a teasing comb. I have so much hair I figure I can put it to some good use and tease the crap out of the sucker to at least look somewhat nice. It has 3 rows of teeth perfect to do the job and get some volume, I will test it out hopefully tomorrow morning...




I went to WetSeal and fell in love with these white wedges!

Welcome back from NY. So jealous.
I've missed your entries!

But I'm glad that you liked fleshpot. I'm totally in love with it because my lips have lots of pigment in it, so it bothers me when I wear lipsticks. I've been looking for a good nude lipstick for a long time, and I'm so glad I picked up fleshpot.

okay, i LOVE those wedges. very VERY cute. :) sunflower is very pretty! :) it reminds me of a slightly brighter version of silk naturals lipstick in "Sublime" :)

Ethereal Prey said...

damn girl those wedges are HIGH! I can never wear those, I forget how to walk. LOL....does this mean you're doing a teasing tut next? :P

Tracy said...

missjaclynrose said...

i also got the nyx peach lipstick in my latest cherry culture haul... it totally wasn't what i was expecting!!! i was thinking the color would be ... well... peach!

Mrs. Lynne, MakeupFix.net said...

I can't believe either that Rea is darker. I look sick when I wear it, lol.

And cute shoes. I haven't been to wet seal in ages! I love wedges and have a couple in storage but sadly have no use for them here.

Askmewhats said...

you always manage to get good looking shoes! I'm soo jealous!!! :D

Liz said...

lovin' the wedge shoes! :-)

christy. said...

So cute your wedges! :)

Bliss said...

Those are nice lipstick colours, i like the peach one (me and red lippies), The white wedges are too cute and it definately looks like something i would buy hehheh.

mayaari said...

those NYX lipsticks look nice - I had to miss out on the big sale b/c it was in between paydays...I hate when that happens.

those wedges are cute! much easier way to add more height without the pain of wearing heels :)

ilurvemakeup said...

Those swatches are GORGEOUS!!!! I love NYX lippies :D

iamsutil said...

wow, i love wedges...most especially those white ones. i am waiting for MAC Heatherette to come out here in the Phils so i can get Fleshpot l/s. i am not really into bright colored lipsticks, i want them nude or with a slight hint of pink. sunflower looks nice on you..i actually envy you because you can get to wear different shades of l/s and they all look good on you. :)

mandilicious said...

that's like my favorite comb ever..:) i once lost mine and i went crazy..now i have like 3 back ups!..i have those wedges too!..love!

soFresh & soPink said...

Vanessa - I love the wedges! I'm seriously makin' a trip to the mall tomorrow. hehe ... Thanks for sharing your goodies!

(g)ezebel said...

i gotta ask: how many lipsticks/glosses do you have?

loooove the sandals!

karen, makeupandbeautyblog.com said...

That teasing comb is NO JOKE! I so would've worked that in 1989.

Cay-ute shoes btw!

Anne said...

ooooh i love your wedges! man i havent gone shopped in awhile! *ahem ahem* *hint hint* let's go shopping *ahem ahem *hint hint* hahahaha.


i really like sunflower on you! i should've gotten it. i got like a buttload of lipsticks prolly of the same shade. haha they were all pink.

Nic Nic said...

nice wedges!!

thanks for swatches, i think fleshpot and myth look kinda similar actually.

dippedfittedz said...

Circe did not work for me at all. Way too brown, not pink like I expected.. Cherry culture needs to get on that! But Sunflower is fab. I have Candy Shop (which turned out to be coral, not pink like cherry culture swatch) and it looks like a match to that. Very pretty colors. I wanna try Fleshpot but MAC lip stuff usually turns me off :/

Linda said...

i wish i can wear wedges. i've always loved them but the bf HATES them. and also i'm a giant already. lol

matching your makeup to your clothes is tacky.

Vanessa said...

Thanks Ladies!

Anonymous- I know a lot of people who agree with you, and honestly to each his/her own, some find it tacky while some do find it cute, for me it just makes sense to, I can't imagine me walking around with blue eyeshadow and I am wearing orange, so personally I just think it compliments the outfit a bit more...

Joyce said...

Hey Nessa, I am with you, I match my outfit with my make-up, and I get great compliments from it as well!

Anyway, I like how that NYX sunflower l/s looked on you and I may have to try that. I recently bought NYX products for the first time and I particularly like their Narcissus lipstick, its similar to MAC Melrose Mood from the Heatherette collection. Its a good and obviously cheaper dupe. :)

Anddd google/blogger messed up with my domain name so I am using the default blogger url. Anyway, have a great weekend! :)

MakeupByRenRen said...

cute shoes! i want to see how your hair looks with teasing b/c i've tried teasing mine after all those pursebuzz videos but it never seems to work :( but the 3 rows of teeth on this look like it does the trick!
