Today the Lipstick Bandit cohort of beauty bloggers unveil their exciting FOTD makeup looks inspired by another member of the Bandits. I’m terribly excited because up until the moment this post is published, each member’s assigned look is shrouded in complete secrecy- the only living person who knows which bandit is doing which look is our Bandit leader Rae of The Notice.
A month ago, I was sent an
I based my look swap on this post, which is one of my favourite looks from Xiao.
Ms Messy Wands had a penchant for deep plummy lips, and through her I discovered the Make Up For Ever Waterproof Lip Liner in the merlot coloured #13C- which turns out to be the perfect base for a long lasting vampy lip.
I bought my MUFE Lip Liner from StrawberryNet since I don’t know of any MUFE retailers in Melbourne.
She also has the most amazing razor sharp model cheekbones, which I tried my best to carve out with some bronzer. I think plastic surgery would work better, but that would be overly creepy in that Single White Female way.

I know I’m a day late on this FOTD- I’ve been sorting out some issues with my commenting system and didn’t want to upload new posts until the teething problems are done.
This is my take on the ‘Bold Lips’ Challenge. I thought I would take this chance to wear a colour that I’m not normally very comfortable with. I’m totally comfortable in bright reds, corals, almost black vampy lips, but cool pinks/fuschias I shy away from.
– NARS Smudgeproof eye shadow base.
– MAC e/s in Nylon on bottom part of top lid
– MAC Omega e/s in crease
– MAC print e/s mixed with omega to lightly define outer V
– MAC Bronzer in ‘Golden’ to contour.
– MAC Fleur Power blush on apples
– YSL Rouge Pure Shine lipstick in Tuxedo Pink (31)
Do you have a lip colour that you tend to shy away from?Posted by myfunnyvalentine on May 17th, 2011 in FOTD, Lipstick, YSL | 2207commentsMay+Challenge+FOTD%3A+Bold+Lips+feat.+YSL+Tuxedo+Pink2011-05-17+06%3A46%3A36myfunnyvalentinehttp%3A%2F%2Fmyfunnyvalentineblog.com%2F%3Fp%3D220
Pure Plum is, well, a sheer plum shade. It’s a great fall/winter colour and I think it would be very flattering across both warm and cool skin tones.

It has a lovely texture- non-sticky, good consistency, and with reasonable wearing time. For some darn reason though, if I don’t exfoliate my lips beforehand, I start to get these tiny Pure Plum coated balls of dead skin on the lips about 1.5hrs into the wear time, which is, needless to say, very unattractive. And it’s only with this gloss.
Does anyone get this with one particular gloss?
Overall I think Pure Plum is a lovely shade- lovelier still because it was on StrawberryNet for half the price it retails for in Australia.
