"That's Not Your Colour" They Said



Hello Everyone,

Today we are discussing what not to wear... sort of.

Have you ever noticed that everyone seems to have an opinion on what you should wear? Friends, family, bloggers, MUAs, magazines, Gok Wan (although I do love Aunty Gok so very much), your pets?
It can get a little exhausting keeping up with the right colour top to accentuate your eyes, the scarf that doesn't clash, the lippie that doesn't wash you out. Let's be honest, it can be a bloody battle of life to get out that door in the morning looking like you've got your shizz together.

I have two lipsticks that I love but I've been told on several occasions that they aren't my colour, I shouldn't wear them and they do nothing for me, however, I can't help but not give a crap, I dress for me bitchez (yeah I just used bitchez) and I like how I feel in these lipsticks and I don't give a rats ass if they clash with my face and make me look like a septic hamster.

Behold: The two banned lipsticks that I love anyway.






Illamasqua Growl lipstick is a deep brown/red with a matte finish. I love how confident this lipstick makes me feel and although I've been told many reasons why I shouldn't attempt to rock this colour, I love it anyway.



Ignore the bad photography where I've blatantly captured myself in the lid reflection...



MAC RiRi Pleasurebomb came out in a limited edition MAC collection (don't they all) a while back, a classic hot pink with blue undertones that makes me feel happy when I wear it, it is such a fun colour to play with but again I have been hit with actual laughter for wearing this.

Will I continue to wear these two shades? Just try and stop me.

Have you got any shades of clothing/lipstick that people try and tell you to set aside?

Rosy

  4. I can tell you how much i relate to this, my mom has said my hair colour doesn't suit me ,while my colleagues think i should wear red lippies more, i think you're right ,we should wear whatever suits us and leave it at that. I love your lippies especially the second one. Very nice.

  5. I have no idea why people would say those are not your colors- they look absolutely fantastic on you! So glad you're wearing what you feel best in and not listening to others opinions and that you said "bitchez". Absolutely brilliant!

  8. I'd like to know who told you these lippies don't look great on you, because my GOD THEY LOOK STUNNING ON YOU. That first dark one looks absolutely stunning on you, and gahh, I wish I can pull of a bright pink the way you do with the second one. I love your confidence, Rosy, so you do you, boo, you look AMAZING. x

  9. Are you kidding me?! I think you look amazing in both these lipsticks! It annoys me so much when people judge like that because at the end of the day it just boils down to opinions. Love your attitude - we should all just wear whatever the hell we want! x

  12. Say what!? People told you these didn't suit you? Were they blind? I think these two colors look gorgeous on you! I really like the first one and I think it really goes well with how you did your eye makeup! Honestly, you should keep wearing these two lipsticks cause they really do look nice on you! I love that you did this post by the way! Such a good idea!

  13. Loving the great looks of yours dear. You looking fab in every picture. I like the RIRI lipshade more as I put it on my lips more often as that suits my skin too. Great idea of sharing your valuable. Nice and keep it up... :)

  14. You look amazing in these lipsticks! Besides, bold lipsticks are trending, I see girls wearing green lipstick and even if it's not the most flattering makeup color, who cares? Rock whatever you wear!

    Plus, I am such a lipstick girl and definitely don't stick to the colors recommended for my complexion, otherwise I would never be able to wear anything that wasn't boring and pale.

  15. looks amazing with the lip colour, i always have such a bad time trying new colour that i always end up buying nudes...
    perhaps i should be more adventurous and try the rainbow.. hahah
    But i really love how the colour isolates your eyes, lovely.
