lorde inspired lips

how to wear dark lips review swatch photo

cargo lipstick in bordeaux*

17 Year Old Lorde took the music industry by storm the last year and went from strength to strength in 2013. Shes very rarely seen without her goth rocker inspired makeup look -Pale face, flick of liner and most importantly her vampy lips. Ultra dark lip shades aren't that hard to wear but a lot of people are daunted by the idea. Keep the skin fresh and dewey with a light base, contoured cheeks and a natural eye. Purple based lips  are a little easier to pull off that super dark blacks. I've been rocking this Cargo Lipstick in Bordeaux. It's a super dark plum with a bit of red in it, creamy, lightweight and long lasting. The pigment in this is just insane, one swipe and it's totally opaque!

  15. This looks absolutely amazing! Lorde's lip color choice is always flawless and I was actually inspired by her this weekend when I chose a darker, wine red for a movie outing. I love the shade above though, it's gorgeous!

  19. So pretty! I really like (dark) purple based lipsticks, and Lorde made me like them even more. You can really pull off dark lips, you should wear it more often!

  30. Do You Need a Love Spell to Get Your Ex lover Back?

    My Name is Vicky Lorimer, I am From Manchester in United Kingdom.i am hear to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Brave for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after a week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Brave casted on him that make him to come back to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Brave for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact bravespellcaster@gmail.com. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
