FOTD and L.A Colors Precious Plum Review

Hey Beauties...

Just a quick face of the day while I wait for my boyfriend to pick me up (crummy Friday night London traffic permitting). Please excuse my ridiculously bushy brows, I'm trying to leave it as long as possible before I go for my first threading session! Saying that I have found the look of these slowly growing on me, (growing on me, geddit!? Ha.) Keira Knightly style! Oh and my hair is wet hence the super unflattering do!

Anyway... This look is inspired by a lipstick I picked up this week at Beauty Base (full haul post to come) I'd been thinking of investing in a dark wine red colour but wasn't very sure if it would suit me. Seeing as this only cost a super cheap 99p I had nothing to lose! I'm still not sure if it suits me or not, opinions welcome? The formula of the lipstick is smooth and doesn't feel at all drying, it hasn't shown up any dry parts of my lips but this could be down to the layer of Carmex i smothered on first. However I don't like the packaging at all!! Very cheap looking!

I decided to keep the rest of my face pretty simple and allow my lips to do the talking :) I've used Revlon ColorStay Foundation in Light Beige and No7 Loose Light Powder in Fair for my base, lashings of No7 Lash Adapt AND L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Extra Black (I like big volume on my lashes) and filled in my brows with MUA Eyebrow Pencil in Blond.

Have an amazing weekend Beauties :)

Love Sian xoxo

    1. It is great! And totally worth the £10.99 as it would take 6 coats of a cheaper mascara to get the volume you get from one of the volume million! Thinking of doing a comparison post with the new one released in the red tube! (completely forgot the name of it) xX
