Time to experiment with some new cooler weather lip colours! This is what I wore with Monday's Taupe-ified Essence Caramel EOTD. I'm not usually a great fan of browns on my pucker - I'm far more inclined to go with a deep nude or a coral, a hot pink or even a red with my winter outfits, but I've had this Australis Waltz in my make up drawer for around 18 months, and decided to give it an airing, and perhaps change my opinion of what I normally term a muddy mouth :-)
So I started by lining and filling in my lips with Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip liner in Cappuccino - I have almost half a dozen of these Rimmel lip liners now after scoring a couple more in the recent Chemist Warehouse half price sale :-)
And here is Australis Colour Inject Waltz - a rich shimmery bronze that I've so rarely worn mainly because it's such a deep hue, and I really don't have much in my wardrobe that it teams all that well with. But now that I think about it, a bright orange top might give it a lift - I'll work on it :-)
To warm and soften it a little, I added Mirenesse 3D Forever Gloss in Slip of Beige. It's a pretty nudey colour, a tad too pale for me to wear alone, but exceptionally versatile over the top of just about any lipstick shade, and this range of glosses is my favourite of the Mirenesse ones - supremely moisturising, creamy and light, and not the slightest bit sticky...
How do you feel about brown lip shades? Do you have a particular fave?
Take care of you,
