seventeen mirror shine lipstick in beehive
rimmel kate moss lipstick in 107*

As I proved with my Revlon Matte Balm swatch post, Switching up your lipstick can dramatically change your overall look. Above I'm wearing the same makeup but two very different lipsticks. The darker shade is Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107, a deep plummy red with a gorgeous matte finish. It looks glamorous while also being incredibly wearable, A really seasonal lipstick. The lighter shade is Seventeen Beehive, a glossy sheer peachy nude. On me, it enhances my natural lip colour and brightens the whole face up. I think the light shade gives a more youthful beautiful look, whereas the darker shade is more vampy and much more seasonal. An idea would be to pop both lippies in your bag to take a look from day to night while on the go. I wouldn't be able to choose which I like more as they both have there pro's and cons! Maybe the nude because it's safe but then again... that 107... I dont know! Help!
Which lipstick do you prefer with this look? Light, Dark or both?

  2. I would go for the Rimmel one...red and black always look good together ^-^ Plus winter is coming, and these 2 are the winter colours par excellence.

  10. nudes and dark lips are my absolute favourite shades to wear on my lips. i tend to go for a nude/light pink during the day and a darker more sultry red in the evening. however, i've never really thought about how they can both change our overall make up. i agree that the nude brightens up the face a bit more to give a fresh faced look whereas the darker shade deepens your make up to give you that vampy style and i can't wait to go and try wearing two different lipsticks with the same face of make up to see the outcomes. and i think it's a great idea to carry two different shades around to go from day to night so easily! i really liked this post and i'll definitely look out for these two particular lipsticks as well! :) X

  12. The 107 looks gorgeous on you, I have it but really can't make it work for me. The colour bleeds and the finish looks awful, even after I exfoliate and moisturise my lips. Shame because it looks gorgeous on everyone else!

  16. Wow - you suit both so much! It's always a good idea to have a darker lippie in your bag to make you make-up more "eveningy" if you go out after work!

  21. I love a dark lip, I'm always worried about them fading and looking odd on the lips though.

    I've found some great ways to make the colour last all day though, just did a post on it!

  23. I love both of them, but for the winter season definitely the dark one! :) xx

  24. I have to say I love the dark lips as I've always loved the vampy/red lipstick shades. I think the colour really complements your eyes too. :) The nude does look gorgeous on you too though! I have a darker complexion and I find it a little hard to get nudes looking that nice on me. Your lips still look really natural, whereas they can often look like concealer lips on me!

  30. A few months ago I would have gone for the nude, but I have been experimenting with dark lipsticks and they can totally transform a look! So I'm going for the darker lip- love!

  31. The nude lips look so pretty! I've been looking for that shade in Boots for a while but it always seems to be out of stock.

    Gotta say personally I'd pick the nude, its safer haha

  34. That rimmel lipstick is the perfect shade! I'm not a massive fan of nude lips on me, but on everyone else they're lovely
