Vampy Lips

Welcome to #LipSwatchWeek *fingers crossed* I will have a new post up everyday with lip swatches. My aim with any of these swatch post is to show what the products look like on my skintone so more black women are represented on the interwebs.

Continuing from last week Monday's post... *sidebar* I've never taken photos at this time of day before and the sun was jockin my fresh! Click the links provided to see better swatches and/or more product information.

Nars Audacious Lipstick 'Vivien'

Like 'Uptown Mauve', it's not the darkest of the dark but it is great for those creeping their way to the darkside. This is already a favourite; made even more so when I discovered that it is the same shade as my favourite NYX lip liner 'Plum'.

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

Heidi Bowen of Moden Makeup

Let's get the obvious one out of the way shall we 😉 I've said before how much I've learned watching Heidi conduct her Workshops. Since then she has increased her skillset, restructured her modules and truly focused on knowledge sharing.

Not to say, the outing isn't a good time - especially if you go with friends - but some settings leave you more intimidated than excited. #TeamModen affiliations aside, I can see how Heidi has grown as a Beauty Educator. And fuh my one part I know any session booked…
