Frontcover - Airkiss Palette

Now you all know I love my lippy & to be honest, I can't imagine going out now without wearing any. I started wearing lipstick everyday early last year & never looked back. I used to just wear it just on nights out & use a trusty lip gloss during the day. How things change.. ; )

 I think the right shade of lipstick can totally complete an outfit even if it's just a casual tea date with the girls. So here's my current favourite palette. : )


This palette was £10 from Boots. It was out before Christmas, so was originally £20, but I bought it in their half price sale. It is the perfect palette for someone who is new to wearing lipstick, as there is such a variety of colours to try, or someone who likes to wear a range of shades, like myself. The palette contains 20 lipsticks, meaning I paid 50p per lipstick & although they are only tiny, you don't need to apply a great amount.


I love the box it came in, so gorgeous. It also has some tips to try at the side, I've labelled them as you can't really read the text in this photo.

1. Try using two different lip colours on the top & bottom lips. This doesn't mean applying a nude & a red! Go for sutle colours that match well together. Think of a colour chart & only go for neighbouring shades.

2. Use a lip liner. As well as 20 lipsticks, you get a lip liner & a lip brush. Use the lip liner to create a guideline for when you apply your lipstick then use the brush to fill in your lips. The liner is great for giving your lips extra definition.

3. Blend colours. Similar to the first tip, use either two or three shades (again imagine the colour wheel) & blend them together, but instead of one colour on each lip, use the darkest shade in the centre of the top & bottom lip & slowly fade out using a lighter shade. The pinks & reds are great for this.

Right, so here is the palette & swatches:




L - R: Cats Nose, Chintz, Blossom, Violaceous, Hyacinth.



L - R: Net Curtain, Peach Puff, Miss Brown, Rhubard, Amaranthine.



L - R: Roseate Tern, Glow Worm, Roseceaous, Charred, Firework.



L - R: Pink Papaya, Arson, Liz Red, Santa, Red Cork.

So, what do you think? Have any of you tried any other Frontcover make-up? : )

Gords should be down this afternoon, then we're out for a meal tonight followed by a night out tomorrow with my friends. It's gonna be awesome. : ) I won't be posting over the weekend, but one of my best girls, Emily, will be guest posting on Monday, so please pop back & check that out. : ) See you when I'm 21!
