    im not a fan of the orangey colored lips… not on other people but on myself it looks very much clownish and seems to make my skin tone appear more yellow!

  2. I LOVE THIS LOOK A LOT.. looking forward to see reviews and swatches of the new products

  3. Whoa, those nails. I love this look. I love orange lipstick so much on people. It looks so cute and interesting.

    Shame there isn’t an “eyes closed” picture so we can see the colour on the lids. Can’ wait to find out what colour this paint pot is.
