(012) Lippie Lovin' Ft Shu Uemura BG954M


Last night I went out with my wife to a bar where they honestly played the best old school R n B and Hip Hop.. we had such a laugh dancing and reminiscing our uni days. It was a pretty causal affair but thought this would be a good time to go through my lipstick collection and choose something I haven't worn in a while. 

See this post isn't just good for sharing with you guys but also because it means I'm being a little more adventurous with the lip colours I wear. To be honest I wanted to choose a really bold lipstick this week but I went for quite a heavy smokey eye, peach blush so decided I wanted something peach based on my lips. I have so much love for coral lipsticks/glosses but I still feel like it's too cold outside to be wearing them on my lips (I usually associate them with summer!) So I decided to wear this colour by Shu Uemura I have blogged about this colour before but hey, here it is again! 

Shu Uemura BG954M


The thing I love about this lipstick is that it's more of a brown, muted lipstick but has that hint of peach to it. To me it's kind of a terracotta colour, just perfect without being too bright but something away from that typical brown/pink nude lipstick. I find this colour works really well with the blusher. I don't know why I don't own more Shu lipsticks the texture is beautiful.. so smooth on the lips and really moisturising. 


Yesterday I also used a new mascara yesterday and thought it was AMAZING! I will be doing a separate post on it, but just to let you know it's by Topshop makeup. My skin is really bad at the moment and my diet and sleep patterns are messed up. I've been breaking out so much but have been using a product which is really working I will also be blogging that soon. 


I also have to say I am FED UP of my hair.. and I came to the conclusion that it's time to grow out the fringe/bangs.. It's just becoming so frustrating and it grows so quickly.. UGH! I feel like I did better than I expected I honestly never thought I'd have my hair like this for as long as I did so it's definetley had a good run.

  6. I've actually bought a few lippies after seeing them on your blog as we have the same colouring. I love Shu Uemura, the brand doesn't get enough love! Yes its expensive, but such good quality, love their makeup brushes and gel liner. Thanks hun for saving me the time swatching, to quote Yinka 'adds to list' :) xxx

    1. I agree! The gel liner was my favourite for ages until I discovered the Inglot one. Also there goat haired blusher brush is an absolute godsend! And their lip brush.. come to think of it the list goes on! This one is a must have hun :) xxx

I'm so excited to try a few of the lippies you post about bc I'm an NC 42 gal and most colors are to pale, wash me out....but whatever lippie I have on I've been layering it with new NARS Turkish Delight:) I'm in love with that gloss! Alone it's way to light but add it with MAC Angel or even my ELF matte lip color in Natural, it's gorgeous!! new follower- adore your site!!

  9. Your fringe really suits you. It makes me want to get another one cut it but then I remember what a bitch it is to grow out! Can't wait to read about the topshop mascara xx
