FOTD- Another red lip

When I started with the FOTD posts I was worried about the variety I can bring. Truth is I had every reason to worry cause my makeup look is soo similar all the time. I do play around with eye shadows and I can easily convince myself they are all totally different. In reality we can call them all brown. Also I hope you dont mind its yet another red lip look from me, because lipsticks I looove.

Before we get to the lipstick let me tell you about a gem that came up from the back of my drawer a few weeks ago. Its the Sleek Blush By 3 set that Laura bought back from the UK a few months ago. I have always been a bit scared of cream blush cause I feel I put too much on and then the blending becomes difficult and I dont know how to sheer it out. For that reason I had never actually tried the Sleek set that promises intensely pigmented cream blushes.

So on a random weekend I figured its time to test it and I havent worn anything since- these cream blushes are amazing. This palette is called Californ.i.a 370 and the shade on the left OC is my favorite and what im wearing on the below picture as well. Its a bit red toned soft coral that just looks super natural. Its pigmented but easy to blend and I really think it sticks around longer than my powder blushes. I love it so much! And Sleek is such a win in budget aspect as well. Do try it out if you can.

 The second reason I wanted to post this was the lipstick-the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Red Pepper. I have said it ten times and will keep repeating that anyone who loves a matte lip and bright colors needs to get those lippies in their life pronto. By far the best formula and such a gorgeous shade range. I will be retuning to the Bourjois counter until I have all of them because thats what true love means.

Regarding the rest of my face you can see the used items on the first photo. There is the mix of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum and CC Cream. Maybelline Master Precise Ink liner and a most of browns from the Naked 3 blended together.

If you do take anything away from this its a) you need the Bourjois lipsticks and b) if you happen to linger around Sleek counter to try the cream blushes!

If you already have all the shades from them Rouge Velvet line please tell me which one should I get next.


  1. That's not always the same look, you can call it a "signature look", lol!
    I love these Bourjois Red Edition Velvet lipsticks! I own Frambourjoise (a reddish pink) and Pink-Pong (a bright fuchsia) and I adore them. The formula is very good, and the price is great for the quality! I'm sure they would look good on you! :)

    1. I have Pink Pong and I think that is one of my most worn lipsticks for the past few months. Absolutely adore it! Will definitely check out Frambourjoise next time. Thanks x

  2. Ok, so reading this may have converted me to like cream blushes :) I've always boo-boo'd them because like you, I was always convinced they wouldn't last as long as powder brushes.

    I want to get some of those Bourjois lipsticks, I nearly bought Pink Pong last week but I chickened out! I shall go back......
