Happy Teal Thursday! Today I’m wearing Fyrinnae Sinister Liquid Matte Lipstick. I wanted to create a dark teal blue lipstick that was long wearing, so I started with a base of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Colour Pencil in Tarred (black). Then I applied Fyrinnae’s Sinister (the teal) to my lips. To add a bit of sparkle I layered a tiny bit of Sugarpill Lumi at the center.

Also, I got my hair cut and colored yesterday. I ended up being at the salon for 6 hours. My hair is now a SUPER vivid purple (with blackened purple roots) and I love it. Christian did an amazing job, as usual. My scalp is still purple though. He initially dyed my roots black but the black didn’t hold, so he went back over it with Pravana Vivids Violet + Vivids Black. Problem solved. Now to just wait 3 days so that I can wash it and no longer have purple scalp.
I got to try out the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint in Terre Neuve and it’s unfortunately too dark and too pink for my skintone. Aside from it being the wrong color, the finish is great. It offers good coverage and does dry down to a velvety matte finish. In the cheek shot to show off the Crushed Pearl highlighter, you can see how the skin by my hairline is much lighter than the foundation, same with my neck. The coloring just looks off to me in all the face shots.
There are a lot of new makeup releases happening that I’m excited about – 1. Sugarpill Lipsticks 2. Sugarpill LE loose eyeshadows in Feral and Droplet 3. new Melt Cosmetics eyeshadows 4. Kat Von D Duo Blushes (I bought Morticia & Gomez, waiting for it to get here) 5. UD Vice LTD Reloaded (waiting for it to arrive) 6. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser (this just sounds like fun).
Are you wearing anything teal for Teal Thursday? Any makeup releases you’re excited about?
