My Imitation of a Look and Maybelline Lipsticks

About a month ago, I had a chance to chill with my friend and her daughter. She was kind enough to drive to K-town so we can window shop at the malls... hehe~ When we passed the beauty store, I grabbed the Laneige monthly brochure/catalog. While browsing the brochure, one picture grabbed my attention.
It's Song Hye Gyo, a popular Korean actress, and she's the model for Laneige Cosmetics. I just fell in love with the light, clean look with a pop of purple on the eyes. I apologize for not the greatest picture! It's on a shiny paper which makes it difficult to take a picture unless someone can tell me how to... hehe~ :P This picture gave me motivation to imitate it to my taste.
For some odd reason, the camera washed the purple out. :/ Oh well, you have an idea... hehe~
Here's how the eye makeup looks. I should have taken a picture of the eyeshadow palette, but I forgot. :/ The eyeshadow palette has 4 colors; cream, pink, purple, and gray. I used all 4 colors of the eyeshadow palette from my collection NOT the Laneige one. Song Hye Gyo had gray on the lids, pink on the inner corners, purple on the crease and outer V, and cream under the eyebrows. I added the purple and pink on the bottom lashes. PLEASE excuse the application of falsie!!! :X I haven't put falsies on for ages and it came out bad *sigh*... lol~ Now you know why I don't wear falsies that often. :P It looked good when the eyes were open!!!... lol~


Recently, I've been into the Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipcolor. I bought two at two different clearance sale... hehe~ I got the first one from CVS.
This is #A12 Sugar Plum Ice.
Here's the swatch of the color. It's a frosty, light pink. I tend to stay away from the frostiness of lip colors but this one isn't bad on the lips. It's not very frosty looking on the lips. It just adds a nice glow which I like! :)

The second one I got from Ulta.
This is #A58 Berry Sorbet.
I don't know if it's because it's the fall season, but I've been into raspberry stain colors. :/ The color is gorgeous but with my pigmented lips, it looks pinkish-red on me... hehe~ I don't apply it much on my lips so I can get the stained color.

These lipsticks are great; moisturizing, they smell like watermelon, and it has SPF. I'm allergic to the Benzone family and these lipsticks don't have them which is great!!! ;)

I love those Maybelline lippies - I wanted to buy Born With It cuz it was also on sale... but I managed stop myself! I have way too many lippies as it is. I love your eye look! Those Asian models are just so gorgeous all the time.

Girl, you always find the good deals on makeup! Both lippies look really nice on you. And omg, I love this EOTD! (I love purple e/s...hehe) You look great with those contacts. =D

Shop N' Chomp said...

Was it a Target ad? Hee hee. I saw one the other day in a mag too. ;) Hope we both get it! And aw, it's making it worse? That sucks. But your eyeballs are super important so going back to your clear contacts is probably a good idea.

Ginny said...

Jannie said...

although neutral colors look fantastic on you, i'm so glad your trying out other colors as well. purple eyeshadow looks gorgeous on you. your eyes look just like the girl's eyes on the the ad. very pretty. :D

the lip colors you picked out are gorgeous too. my favorite one is the sugar plum ice one. :D

on my next trip to the CCO, i'll make sure to pick out gilt with association for you. i'm hoping it'll still be there. let's cross our fingers. hehehe... :D i'm gonna check out walmart too in case they restocked on those meteor glitter eye shadows from hard candy as well. :)

thank you for the awesome comment on my makeup as well. :D i haven't really done a look in a while. well, actually, i haven't really done anything in my blog in a while. that's why i decided to play with my makeup again and see if a decent look will turn up. hehe...

how is everything going, btw? i know for sure the weather must still be crazy hot over there...just like here. i was hoping it'll cool down a little, but that's only in the morning. after that, escondido feels just like it's baking in the oven.

hope you a have a great evening. :D
