Feeling Gothic ft Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow pencil

It's me again!

So today I got really bored (the only thing on my agenda was a trip to Sainsbury's. Oh the joy) and I decided to try out a quick makeup look using two products I haven't used before. The first I haven't used because it's brand new and it's Charlotte Tilbury's Colour Chameleon eyeshadow pencil in 'Amber Haze'. The second was 'Cyber' lipstick by MAC and I had never used that because honestly I've been quite scared to! Lol

I'll start off by saying that I am completely IN LOVE with the Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow pencil and I'll tell you why below the pics :) 

On the website this product is described as being as something which intensifies your natural eye colour and there are two shades (a day and night) for each eye colour. My eyes are dark brown and therefore I don't think it's really possible to intensify them? But I do love every other component of this product. 

It is extremely easy to apply. In fact so easy that I almost thought the colour wasn't transferring onto my eyelids! I expected it to drag but it literally glided across my eyelids so gently and smoothly. In addition it is such a lovely colour and it sparkles rather than shimmers. The Colour Chameleon also stays on all day without budging, and while this is amazing I would recommend applying and blending each eye one at a time because it will set before you get a chance to lol. It retails at £19 and while I may have thought this a little bit extravagant before, I am now a convert and will most definitely be purchasing 'Dark Pearl' which is the other recommended shade for brown eyes. 

Other products used:

Base: MAC Fix+ and MAC Strobe Cream
Foundation: MAC Matchmaster in shade 7.5
Eyebrows: Rimmel eyebrow pencil in 'Black Brown'
Concealer: MAC Full Coverage Foundation in NC45
Eyes: Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Amber Haze on the lid. MAC eyeshadow in 'Cork' in the crease. Rimmel Volume Flash x 10 Extreme Black mascara.
Cheeks: Sleek Contour Kit in medium and blusher in 'Honour'
Lips: NYX lipliner in Y2K and MAC 'Cyber' lipstick 

Just realised that this turned into quite a long post lol. Hope you enjoyed!

Review: MAC 'Flat Out Fabulous' Lipstick

Hi guys!

It's been more than a month since I last posted but I have a good reason, I promise! So since January as well as working full time as teaching assistant I've also been attending the London College of Fashion training to be makeup artist, so I've found it quite difficult to find the time to post :(. But since it is half term this week I have some time. And because the name of the blog is Lipstick For Dessert, what better way to start than with a lipstick review!

So last week, I finally spent the MAC vouchers I received for Christmas. One of the things I picked up was a lipstick called 'Flat Out Fabulous'. And trust me when I say that I have not been this excited in a very long time! I'm obsessed with bright and bold lipsticks and my go to hot pink lipstick has been 'Girl About Town' for quite a while. However, what had been bothering me about that lipstick was the finish. I love matte lipsticks but 'Girl About Town' had an amplified finish meaning that there was a sheen to it and it definitely did not stay on all day. So imagine my joy when I spotted 'Flat Out Fabulous'...a matte hot pink! 

It is described as a 'bright plum' and I really love the colour of this lipstick as it's bright, but not bright to the point of looking neon as some others can lol. I also love that it's matte and not retro matte which means it is not too drying on the lips. However, I would still make sure to condition my lips before I start my make up just to make sure. I used MACs 'Spice' lipliner underneath but it does seem to mute out the lipstick a little bit so I would suggest just using it around the lip line and not to fill in the entire lip. It really works well with bronzy-neutral makeup and I'm really excited to see what other looks I can create with this! It retails for £15 and if you love to stand out then I would most definitely give it a try! 

Hope you like it as much as I do!
