Cosmetics a la Carte Matte Velvet Lipstick in Tomato
Hey Beauties! As promised here is the Summer Reds look I have created with the beautiful Cosmetics a la Carte Matte Velvet Lipstick in Tomato and Outliner Eyeliner & Shadow in Blazon! I like this tone on tone look set off by the fresh pink flush on the cheeks. I'm a big fan of Cosmetics a la Carte lipsticks, the shade range is absolutely fantastic, I took a shot from the 2012-2013 catalogue of the shade range in my previous blog post so do have a look. The lipstick comes in four textures, Moisture Plus, Lustre, Matte Velvet, and Sheer Balm. The Matte Velvet wears really comfortably, without drying the lips and it lasts well!
The Outliner, which can be used as an eyeliner and eyeshadow has a very creamy texture. When I swatched it first time I instantly knew it would be perfect for a lived in smudgy look. It does crease pretty quickly, and gives you that modern edge to the look. An eyeshadow that has a super creamy texture gives you that almost glossy/wet eyeshadow look which I think looks pretty sexy during the summer. I do love the shade Blazon, I haven't come across that many red eyeshadow shades. Blazon is a warm, sultry red with a bit of shimmer giving it a satin finish, it's a really wearable and beautiful shade.
