On my lips: MAC Iris Apfel Pink Pigeon

MAC Iris Apfel collection lipsticks have given me life!  I'm wearing Pink Pigeon (the lil' sis is in Milani's Rose Hip.)  Pink Pigeon is bright, matte and totally a mood booster.  Does it look neon?  Believe it or not, the infamous and highly sought after Candy Yum Yum lipstick is brighter and a more true neon.  I love both!


Can  you see how Milani's Rose Hip compares.  Pink Pigeon is matte (not the usual uber drying formula).. long lasting, and it stays put!  The Milani lipstick is a bit more emollient, making it deeper in color and more prone to bleeding, shifting around. You def need a lip liner with that one.
Does it glow in the dark?

...andddd for PinK's sake ;) An untried polish: Revlon's Sparkling.  Loved the color and glitters in the bottle, but the color on me? I was not in love =(

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the lip colors! sometimes a bit of a problem finding one that's just the right shade for me--they both look great on you and sis! (she's so cute. why don't you like the nail polish? i think i looks good on you!

hey janel! thanks! overall, the light blushing pink sort of clashed with my yellow skin tone... it seemed off, kinda like pink foundation on yellow skin, lol. the sparkly polish was fun though... hard to get that opacity ;(
