Good Cyber Monday to you!!
Did any of you guys brave the long lines for Black Friday?? I watched the madness on TV!! I just think that shopping is an online phenom now. I just couldn’t tear myself away from the couch!! LOL!
I recently reviewed and recommended the Black Dahlia Lip Tar from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. So for all of you who bought it, here’s a LOTD to show the versatility of this oxblood lip colour!
So I used a dark wine lip pencil, Nightmoth from M.A.C., and lined my lips. I then used a lip brush and applied a DROP of Black Dahlia on my lips. I actually a used a few layers to get the deepest colour. It dried to a shiny finish that was mostly opaque and not sticky.
This very bold and deep! Love it! I paired it with a neutral eye shadow, winged liner and a light application of plum blush.
This is very dark, vampy and lush all at the same time. It’s not super shiny nor matte so it keeps it from being too 1988.
So, for those who are not ready for this deep colour, there is another option! I then wiped off most colour and it left a lovely, plum demi-matte stain!
I would wear this everyday! I wore both looks for hours and they lasted quite long. Of course the stained version has more staying power. To achieve this look, I would apply a very light, thin layer and blot.
So those are 2 versions of the oxblood look!
