Welcome back for the third episode of the I Goth You TAG by Sue of Cosmetic Mind where we explore our dark side. The first episode featured my first ever black smokey eye and you can read it here. I had to skip the second one on scary movies and series because I’m a chicken and can’t watch them without having nightmares for days (I am legend on a stormy night anyone?). But here we are for the episode dedicated to Morticia Adams and her iconic look, the embodiment of goth! The focus is particularly on out favorite dark lipsticks, and boy do I have a lot! So grab a cup of tea and let’s get on with them.
Welcome back to another monthly episode of the Paciugopedia 3! If you’re new around here, in this series each month the participants reproduce makeup looks from other bloggers/makeup artists on their own eye shape, skin tone and with the products to them available. You find the other episodes here and can read the introduction from the creator of the series BeautyBats here.
At the beginning of my journey with makeup I refused to wear nude lipsticks because I thought they wouldn’t add to a look and I was better off with some lip balm and be happy. This was when “nude” to me was synonym to “concealer lips” or to Myth by MAC, colors that didn’t fit me or my skin tone. With time I learned there are out there shades that embody that “my lips but better” lip color that I was missing. These shades will fit best those with warm undertones and medium contrast in their colors, among which I fall. Well, once I found that out I ended up hoarding warm nude lipsticks and liquid lipsticks, which brings us to today’s post.
Liquid lipsticks are my love, it’s not a secret. I am a matte lipstick kind of girl mainly because they look gorgeous, last all day and therefore I don’t need to worry about touching up or bleeding. Therefore liquid lipsticks are like the ultimate dream in my book. Among the many brands out there that make them, I have tried four of the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and I want to share here my review and swatches of each shade.
