Another Fave Pink Lippie: Mattese Elite Porn Star

 
   I've got a quickie face of the day post for you, courtesy of my phone.  I finally figured out a way to make my cell pics look decent.  I use the Airdroid app to connect my phone to my laptop. From there I can upload my pic to editing software and then proceed as usual.  I've noticed it makes a huge difference, the pics look less grainy that way.  They're not perfect... but a huge improvement!  But I digress...
 
   In case you haven't noticed, I LOVE me a bright lip.  It's the quickest way for me to look awake, and I can get away with less makeup.  Lately I've been on a pink kick so I present Mattese Elite lipstick in Porn Star (cuz I'm classy like that!)   This is one of my favorite pink lippies EVER, it's an intense blue-pink. As you can see, it freaks my camera out!  Like most of the Mattese Elite line, I suspect this may have a MAC cousin.  I would consider this to be similar to am amplified finish, very creamy and lasts for a while. 

  • Eyes- the bronze shade from my tokidoki Love from London palette
  • eyeko skinny eyeliner pen
  • Benefit They're Real mascara
  • Maybelline BB cream
  • Mattese Elite lipstick in Porn Star
   And as you can see, I've darkened my ombre to a light ash brown with lavender accents.  The lavender is fun but more maintenance than I'm willing to give at the moment.  It's already faded to a silvery blonde.

   If you can get your hands on Porn Star, I HIGHLY recommend it. However it's being discontinued (along with the rest of the Mattese Elite line... I was so gutted when I found out!) and it's no longer on the website.  You ::may:: be able to find it at Ricky's stores around New York City.

    1. Thanks for checking me out! Try using a bright colored gloss, it's all about baby steps. Also try out different types of colors, cool tones, warm tones,etc until you find the perfect one.
