My favourite type of makeup to wear is lip colour. Even if I am wearing nothing else on my face, a bold lip makes me feel more confident and put together.
I've always been a fan of reds, and lately I just cannot seem to get enough of them! :)
So, during my last trip to Sally Beauty Supply, I perused their mini Sally Girl makeup collection near the cash register, as I have had many good experiencing using their cute and rather inexpensive makeup.
I picked up Shy, which is a semi-sheer bright red.
This is a blue-based red, which makes it great for skin with red undertones.
When it is on, it looks a bit red-pink:
(I tried to adjust the colours to make them more true-to-life, but they look super bright here as I had to use my flash. The colour is a bit darker and deeper in real life. Also, please excuse the messed-up blurring, I meant to blur around the lips so I could focus on the lip colour and not my skin, but I was a bit overzealous! XD)
The coverage is really decent, and what I like most about the formula is that it is really creamy, and not drying. :D
This is slightly sheer, so it does fade faster than a matte lipstick. I would like to tell you how long it lasted on me, but I drink tea all day and smoke, and I don't think my experience would be very helpful. XD
I really like that with the Sally Girl cosmetics, you buy them in mini-sizes, which makes them very economical. You can try a bunch of them for a very small cost, and not worry about wasting much money if you don't like some of them on you. :) (Also: you can easily take these with you, as they don't take up too much space.)
I would suggest using a lip liner with this, as it can bleed a bit outside of your lip line.
Have you tried any of the Sally Girl mini lipsticks before? :D
Have a great day!
