Here’s the make-up I wore Wednesday May 6. I love the simple, peachy eye make-up; I’m actually wearing something similar today. I hadn’t worn the lipstick in a long time, but I wore it quite a lot last spring and summer, and I do think it’s very pretty.
(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection (shades: White Chocolate + Salted Caramel + Marzipan) + e.l.f. Baked Blush in Pink Tastic on browbone, mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White. Lips: Rimmel Moisture Renew Universal Transparent Lipliner in 001 Universal + Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in 320 Funtime Fuchsia)
Here’s what I wore Tuesday May 5. Another dino sweatshirt + black skirt combo. I guess I like how the tight, black skirt dresses up a casual sweatshirt a bit.

This is what my nails have looked like this past week. I’ve been wanting to paint my nails in different pastel colours for a while, and I finally got around to doing it. It’s quite cute, isn’t it?

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. As I wrote in the outfit post the dinosaur sweatshirt begs for colourful make-up, so I went with purple and green on the eyes and soft pink on the lips.

Here’s what I wore Thursday April 30. I just love this dinosaur sweatshirt and how I feel I just have to wear some sort of colourful make-up when I wear it:)

Remember when I compared two drugstore eyelid primers? Well, I don’t blame you if you don’t, because it was 4 months ago. I wrote that I’d might make some more posts like that, so that’s what I’m going to do now. I’m going to do a comparison of two different liquid lipsticks from the drugstore, and I’ve been wanting to make this post for a long time, but I just haven’t had the time to walk around with two-coloured lips for a whole day, until a few days ago. I’m going to compare the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick to the MUA Luxe London Velvet lip laquer. I chose to compare two pink colours (Bourjois: Pink Pong, MUA: Funk), so that my lips wouldn’t look too crazy.
I’m wearing the Bourjois one on the left side (your left) of my lips and the MUA one on the right side (I primed my lips with a bit of EOS lip balm). Since hot pinks/fuchsia pinks are my go-to lip colours, it might not come as a surprise that I love both shades. Both lipsticks are very pigmented (the MUA a bit more than the Bourjois) and equally easy (or difficult) to apply. Right after you’ve applied the lipsticks I find the Bourjois one a bit more comfortable; the MUA one is a bit sticky initially, but as soon as it has dried completely you don’t feel it on your lips. The Bourjois one turns a bit stickier during the day, but not in an annoying way. I decided not to touch up all day, so you can see how it wears. The first picture was taken right after application. The second picture was taking after I ate my lunch. As you can see the Bourjois one looks pretty much the same, while the MUA one wears off at the inner part of the lip. I’ve worn both lipsticks several times before, and I find the MUA one more difficult to reapply.
The next two pictures were taken after I ate my dinner and after removing the lipsticks respectively. After eating a larger meal for the second time the Bourjois one started to wear off a bit as well and the MUA one had worn off even more. I removed the lipsticks rather gently with Garnier Micellar Cleasing Water, and as you can see the MUA one came off easily, whereas the Bourjois one leaves a very light stain. None of them are extremely difficult to remove though.
And now to the conclusion: I really like both of them, but my favourite has to be the Bourjous Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipstick. It looks nicer for a longer time on the lips, and you don’t have to touch up very often. It is the more expensive one though (it’s £8,99 and the MUA one is only £3), but I definitely think it’s worth the money.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I was really experimenting with eye make-up that week (see some other looks here and here), and I think this look is really pretty and very wearable. And it goes with any lip colour.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday April 29. A simple and casual outfit put together based on my favourite T-shirt.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love this look! I’m wearing the top row of my Stila In the Light palette on my eyes, and those colours are just perfect together. I really should wear those colours together more often. And I think the dark nude lip is a perfect match for the eyes.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday April 28. I hadn’t worn my Bambi T-shirt in a long time, because I find it to be more spring and summer appropriate, probably due to the pastel colours.
