L-R : Smooth Plum, Creamy Melon, Gorgeous Guava
L-R : Red Velvet, Lovely Cherry, Bare Ruby
I know this follow-up post to my Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipsticks FOTDs took a while before seeing daylight but here we are finally. Close-up shots, first. Details after the break.
CREAMY MELON | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Tinted Moisturizer Compact in Natural, Translucent Loose Setting Powder/ BROWS: MAC Matte Eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown/ EYES: Mally Evercolor Ultimate Waterproof Eyeliner in Green Means Go/ EYES&CHEEKS: Mark Flip for It Fall Palette/ LIPS: Avon Lip Liner in Peach Envy, Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon
About the Look. My notes tell me that I used this look for one lazy Sunday. Ummmm, okay. I don’t think I look quite ready for a relaxed day outdoors or strolling through the mall. In fact, looking at these photos, I think I look a bit more like I’m going out that night? I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me and reading through the products I used makes me realize how entirely unlazy this look is. I even used a lip liner which I rarely do, especially NOT when I’m in a hurry or am supposedly lazy. But I do like how this turned out and Creamy Melon looks particularly refreshing to my eye.
GORGEOUS GUAVA | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Translucent Loose Setting Powder, Avon Ideal Luminous Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation in Nude/ BROWS: MAC Matte Eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown, Browset in Girl Boy/ EYES: Jane Eyezing in Goddess (Brazil Nut, Rain Forest , Browny Points), Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black/ CHEEKS: Nars One Night Stand Palette (Orgasm, Laguna, Mistinguette)/ LIPS: Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Gorgeous Guava
About the Look. I’m sure I used this look for one of my meetings. It’s simple enough without being too neutral. The color of Gorgeous Guava looks a tad shimmery on the tube with tiny specks of glitter that you can see up close, but has that pretty glossed up look when applied on the lips. I’m not entirely sure if this looks good on me though. Honestly, I rarely can tell if a lipstick does except when it comes those really light pinks and beiges that make me look washed out. That, I know for sure does not look good on me.
RED VELVET | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Tinted Moisturizer Compact in Natural/ BROWS: MAC Matte Eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown/ LIPS: Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Red Velvet
About the Look. This look was absolutely done in a hurry. I know because we were going to a baptism that day and it was EARLY. I ended up applying everything in the car again except for the primer. I would have preferred to apply this with a lip liner though but I didn’t get to bring one along. (Plus, there were only so much stoplights we had to go through before reaching the venue and I can only apply liners and lipsticks when the car was not moving.)
LOVELY CHERRY | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Translucent Loose Setting Powder, MAC Studio Fix Liquid Foundation in NC40/ BROWS: MAC Matte Eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown/ CHEEKS: Avon Face Pearls/ LIPS: Avon Lip Liner in Pink Bouquet, Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Lovely Cherry
About the Look. Wore this look out for errands so I didn’t want to make much of an effort. The Avon Face Pearls on the cheek looked really subtle which I liked and it matched well with Lovely Cherry.
BARE RUBY | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Avon Skin Goodness CC Cream in Nude, Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Banana/ BROWS: Avon Brow Definer in Soft Brown/ CHEEKS: Urban Decay Naked Flushed/ LIPS: Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Bare Ruby
About the Look. Serious mode required a serious lipstick. I find this a very straightforward shade that I can wear without much makeup on the rest of my face. One swipe and it immediately completes the look.
