Two Faced's "sex kitten"

So this is a day late, and these photos aren't technically of the lipstick in the title, but that was the first layer, then MAC's candy yum-yum got layered on top of that, and THEN Russian Red got layered on top of *that*. However, these photos are for a new project my two good friends and I are working on...

We will be taking/styling boudoir Polaroids. I'm on makeup, my friend Morgan will be photographing, and my twinfriend Ashley will be styling. All the details haven't been worked out yet, but keep a lookout, because we are awesome.

Here are some promo/bio/fun polaroids Morgan took and we styled for our about us section of the website..

Firm Form by MAC

So I didn't take this photo today but I'm bad at following through with things on my days off of work, so here is my opinions about Firm Form from MAC's "strength" collection.

I love this color to pieces, it is like a dark dark almost-purpley black that is reminiscent of "rocker" to me because of the casual glitter it holds. And because I am a crazy gothish girl who you wouldn't want to bring home to your parents I absolutely love it and want to wear it everyday. Thank you to mamagrubs on Instagram for posting that it was restocked online. I am super sad I missed out on all the other colors, but this one is just perfect for me for right now!

MAC's Russian Red, a week of lipstick reviews

Starting with my favorite redsssss!

My all time favorite red lipsticks (in no order) are: by MAC: Russian Red, Ruby Woo, Love Goddess From the Marilyn Monroe collection and by Limecrime: Retrofuturist! (and that baby blue baby is a new toy a lipstick primer by Two Faced)

My favorite red of all time is a tie between Retrofuturist and Russian Red.

Generally whatever I call my "favorite" always turns out to be a tie.

Russian Red was my very first red lipstick. My old roommate gave it to me as a gift a long long time ago and it just sortof stuck. It really is just the perfect "retro" red. And although I hate the word "retro" it just kindof fits...

Retrofuturist is a newer discovery, it is a "true red." Usually one only encounters blue-reds and pink-reds and orange-reds, but this one is spot on. Limecrime is easily one of my favorite makeup brands right now for a number of reasons, at the top of the list is their colors. Oh, I die.

Ruby Woo was introduced to me when I was working at Idol Vintage in the Mission District of San Francisco. The best and worst thing about it is that it doesn't budge. Why is it also the worst, you ask? It is a very *very* drying lipstick. A lot of the time I will just put Russian Red over it to add some moisture.

Both Russian Red and Ruby Woo are "matte."

And lastly the Marilyn lipstick. This one just goes on pure and smooth. It is a "satin," and yes I did buy almost all the other lipsticks from that collection. I skipped the orangeyred one that I can't remember the name of and regret not buying solely because my set is incomplete!

I suppose this was more of a "favorites" than an actual review, but it is just seven days of lipsticks, mmmmkay?

Be bop-a- Lula

I'm wearing Russian Red in this picture! Along with Magic Ink liquid liner by Benefit, that strange cream brow filler by Makeup Forever, Lorac Foundation with MAC powder, and a sweet new baby from Two Faced that will get its own post at some point because it is the product I've been looking for my whole liiiiiifeeee!

And just because, here's a photo of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in To Have and Have Not. This is the movie where they fell in love.....
