One of my favourite ways to wear a dark lip :) Paired with a glossy eye and a light grunge element.

My more chatty videos will be back once exam season has finished!

    1. Always relevant! Hollow is awesome, I have no idea why the counter tester looks dry and sorta pink toned? Maybe it was used and abused but the new product is perfect for contouring.
      Thank you! So close to finishing (yet so far…) x

  1. Dark lipstick looks gorgeous on you! I’ve seen a few people use the Nightmoth pencil lately… I might just have to give it a try! I usually go for MAC’s Diva lipstick when I’m wearing a dark lip colour but I’m curious to see how they’d look combined. Great video as always!

    1. Hey Lys :)
      It’s a tricky texture, I can’t lie. Very matte so prep your lips accordingly but it’s such an impactful shade so I have much love for it :) x

  2. You look amazing! I too love dark lips but used to think it would not suit my clear complexion but it does look good.
    One of the best way to make a statement with make up.
    I find it much more chic that a red lip, that is way to mainstream.
    I’m so used to see girls putting it off with a bad texture or the wrong color, that i grew tired of it..
    It’s almost summer here in Paris, so the look will be harder to try but i’ll wait for fall :)
    Have a nice day!

  3. Just want to say this look is gorgeous. I seriously think I’ll recreate it for a wedding I’m attending next weekend. BTW, I bought some RBR eyeshadows… Amazing, they blend like a dream and colours are beautiful. I also bought the lipstick in irreverence. It’s stunning. Does me more justice than wearing some more nude colours with my more pigmented lips but very pale skin (NC10-15). The only places I can find RBR seems to be their website and Beauty Bay (where I made my recent purchase). Why must it be so difficult to find in Australia best of luck for your exams. X

    1. Hey Laura!
      Thank you! I’m so pleased you liked it. RBR shadows are the BOMB! The brand is still relatively niche but the products are pure quality, in my opinion. I also love Irreverence! I have pigmented lips and that lip shade is a great my-lip-but-better on me.
      I generally purchase RBR on their website boutique, they lowered the shipping costs a while back so it’s easier for me to justify!

  4. LOVE THIS! I am crazy about matte, vampy lips – I just can’t help myself. I love the “heroin chic”, as you say, of this look. I want to try the fake lower lash line you demonstrated – so clever! I have smallish eyes that I’d like to look larger and I think I’ll have good luck with this technique! xoxo sj

    1. YAY :) I love matte lips in general, I should do a post on my favourite matte lipstick formulations. Heroin chic is one of my favourite trends :) Especially because I love contouring and no blush, which is very Kate Moss in the 90’s sorta look.
      I think heavy lower lash lines look awesome on smaller eyes, it adds a lot of interest and size to the eye :) Let me know how you go!
      xx

  5. Absolutely stunning, it’s so perfectly sexy+not too sexy! And it really made your eyes stand out – I think I’ll try the faked-lower lash line tomorrow morning! Beautiful :)

  6. This is making me so glad I spent an arm and a leg on the Platinum on eBay!! Although now I really want the Naked 2 palette, despite never using my original Naked palette.

    This also makes me long for fall, which is crazy, since it seems like our winter just ended and I need some warmth in my life!

    Also…ooooh….what was that very purple lip color in your palette, second row from the top, second from the left? (Have you ever done a post on your lip palettes?)

    Anyway, totally gorgeous!!

      1. Err…yeah. That’s how much I paid. I was having a bad week, what can I say? Sometimes I fall on my head.

        Ahhh, cool, thank you! I actually have Violetta, I’ll have to pull it out and try it again. :)

        You’re almost there! You can do it!! xx
