Colour Me Bad

Hey Glossies,

I think most of us are looking forward to Spring (especially the colors – the yellows, corals, pinks, purples and even browns [tans]).

It seems that MAC is preparing us for said season. MAC Spring Colour Forecast collection was not really on my radar until a few days prior to the official date, well except for the ombre blushes. I saw the excited tweets and status messages, so I had to go check out the other items. One of the items that I did not want was the Colour #3 quad. The swatches on Specktra were underwhelming and I decided to opt out….until I saw it in person at Nordstrom. The colors are probably dupable, but I really feel in a strong like with Bruised Plum e/s.  (Yes, it is  Veluxe Pearl!!)

My other Nordstrom purchase was the Viva Glam VII – Lady Gaga.  The color is described as a light blue pink. I like this color and I think it can be women of color (WOC) friendly.  I used a mauve-colored liner to reduce the coolness of the shade.  I think this lippie is a “should-have!”

    Very pretty look. I think I want both Viva Glam 7 lipsticks.

    Looking great! I didn’t think gaga would work for me but I made it work.

      @Marisol Thanks. Do you have any pics of you wearing the gaga lippie?

  • BIanca February 22, 2010 at 1:35 AM

    You are the ONLY person so far I have seen the GAGA on that looks good in it. I was starting to think the color was a mistake, but it looks super pretty on you!

    • Pumps And Gloss February 22, 2010 at 2:05 AM

      @Bianca Thank you. I will say that the color does not like that washed out (cool) in person. But the Gaga shade definitely needs to be mixed with another a shade to make it work.

    I totally caved and bought this last Friday! I normally can’t wear this shade very well, but with the right liner it actually looks really pretty. I’m lovin’ this on you!

  • Eb February 22, 2010 at 5:06 PM

    Purple is my fav color… definitely going to have to try this look

  • MilanRouge February 22, 2010 at 5:48 PM

    Yes! I LOVE Gaga…such a purrty pink! I’ve been rocking it almost every day since I got it. ;) Looks great on you.
