MAC "Cockney" lipstick is from MAC's core line, but also part of the recently released Stylishly Yours color story. It's an orange based red with very subtle gold shimmer (I couldn't detect any once the color was on my lips) & surprisingly well pigmented for a lipstick with a lustre finish. It's among my favourite red shades & so I decided to do a look using it (*please click on picture to enlarge it*):
All products I used are from MAC.
eyes: Brule on the lid, Brown Down in the outer crease & Carbon in the outer V as well as to line.
cheeks: Prim & Proper, on the apples of cheeks Stereo Rose MSF (very lightly).
lips: Redd lip pencil to line, Cockney
I also did some Christmas inspired nail art (*please click on picture to enlarge it*):
The silver & gold nail art is ment to look like tinsel ;-)
As base color I used MAC "Shirelle", a vivid red which has a great formula, not thick, not thin, very easy to apply & opaque with 2 coats. It also dried extremely quickly (in about 10 minutes) without Seche Vite!
For the nail art I used CN "Silver Chrome" & CND "Gold Chrome". The glitter accents were done with Esssence Nail Art & Tip Painter in "Silver Sparkle" & Orly Instant Artist in "24k Glitter".
