Return of the Lipstick Diaries #3 - Besame Chocolate Kiss and MAC Kinda Sexy
I was apparently in a very brown-beige-nude sort of mood this January, huh? But these are two very different colors. The first one is Besame Chocolate Kiss, a duplicate of a 1970s lipstick shade. It's a rich brown shade with a lot of red tones in it. Normally I don't go for brown shades because they just look weird on my skintone, but the warmth in Chocolate Kiss saves it for me. I'm glad I only have a mini, though, because I know this is a shade I'll enjoy when I wear it, but won't wear often. As a side note, this lipstick normally has a tad more shine to it--I blotted it because I was reminiscing about my 90s childhood. Man, I loved raiding my best friend's sister's makeup and seeing all of the dark plums and matte browns!
Annnnyway. I've got another nude peach shade here (WTF is my problem lately?), MAC Kinda Sexy. I've been wanting to try this shade for a long time, so I was beyond thrilled to get it in a pack of 4 mini lipsticks I received as a gift. I actually really like this color on me: it's got just the right balance of peach and brown, and it's not as dark and muddy or as pastel as some other peachy nudes. I've noticed that I've acquired a few of these types of lipsticks in the past year, though, so I'll have to do some careful comparisons in a few months to pick the ones that perform the best.
If you're looking forward to more Lipstick Diaries and a dozen new shots of my super sexy default head tilt, let me know!
