It’s been a while, but as I’m stuck in my house after Miss Hurricane Irene came through I have time to post the next color in my Ignorant Lip Series.
The Indigo color I came up with was a work of boredom after work. I have a tendency to change and experiment with my makeup when I come home. This lip is created by using dark blue eyeliner(Auto-de-blu), dark purple lipliner(Velvetella) and a deep purple glittery lipgloss(Fab Frenzy Superglass)**All Items From MAC**
Apply the dark blue liner around the lip and feather in. Apply the dark purple liner to the inside of the lip, making sure to blend with the blue. Apply the dark purple glitter gloss and below is your finished product:
Next up in the series is, as promised, Orange. This summer, Orange was an “IN” color for clothes and makeup. I used Safety Orange by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. I also lined them with an orange liner from MAC (Temperature Rising) As I said before this is a mint scented product that is worth it’s weight, because truly, a little dab will do you! Also, I consider it a neon sort of orange. I was halfway convinced my lips could glow in the dark! It’s not for the faint of heart, and as always, if you’re afraid of the orange overpowering your look, go with a neutral contoured eye, a little bit of liner and call it a day! I haven’t worn Safety Orange much, because it’s not really work appropriate lol. However with these sweltering days still around, I’m sure I’ll get plenty of weekend use out of it.
Yes, I make silly faces. Don’t judge me! :)
So, I’ve been thinking. In my Rainbow of Ignorant Colors, I still have:
Yes, yes, I’m aware the last two colors aren’t found in anybody’s rainbow. However white and black are both the absence and presence of all colors, and as such I feel they should be included. Also, Pink and Brown will absolutely be included in my rainbow of colors.
Next up will be Orange. I’ll be wearing OCC Liptar in Safety Orange. I may or may not include other orange products in my possession(it depends on what amplifies the level of ignorance).
Directly from their website, http://www.occmakeup.com/lips.html , liptars are purported to be saturated in color, dry down to a satin finish, and never feel heavy. I can tell you with my use of Anime and Safety Orange that what they claim is absolutely true, plus the liptar smells of mint!

I’ll post pics over the weekend.
Next up in my rainbow of lip colors is Green. It’s a color that I’ve rarely seen as a lip color; it’s more rare than black and blue. Because of that I had no proper green lip products to use. I know Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics makes a green lip tar, but as a makeup fan, I had no need of a green lipstick/lipgloss so I never bought it. I don’t recall any green lip products besides MAC Liquid Lurex(which isn’t green when worn) and Jealous(y?)(which looks pink on the lips).
I’m wearing Minted Eye Kohl, all over my lips, with no base.
So as you all know MAC partnered with 9 bloggers, giving them a chance to create their own lipglass/eyeshadow from the ground up. The collection released a little bit before midnight on the 21st, and I got my shipment last night.
Check out my youtube review:
As I say in the video, I love ALL the things I chose to order. Today, I’m rocking Afrobella’s All of My Purple Life. Nitro:Licious has a definite possibility of becoming a holy grail red. I love how deep it is. It almost makes Russian Red look orange/coral. Temptalia’s Jealously Wakes is one of the prettiest, most unique colors I’ve had the pleasure to see. I have a very terrible tendency to buy things that are easily duped or juts barely different from something else I own. I can say that I don’t have that issue with this eyeshadow, or with either of the lipglasses I bought.
Leave a comment if you ordered anything and let me know how you like it.
Like I told you guys before, I have intentions of coloring my lips every shade of the rainbow. I could start off with red, but lets be creative and shocking with our first color. BLUE. I’m wearing Auto de Blue technakohl liner by MAC and on top of that, I have Peacocky. Peacocky was a wonderful shade, but it is not for the faint of heart. If you can’t take the boldness, line lips with a purple liner, and you’ll have a purple/blue lip which will still be unique, but not as show stopping.
With blue eyeliner and about 4 layers of gloss
I would say if you’re serious about wearing this out, make like me and go neutral on the rest of your face. I’d put maybe a darker color in my eye crease and pump up the eyelashes and call it a day. Your lips will command all the attention.
How do you start a blog and never update it? I’m the queen of that honey, but I’ll make it up to you on Saturday, when I post the first of a series:
The Ignorant Colors of the Rainbow.
Now I know when most people thing rainbow they’re thinking the clothing store, gay pride, and then Roy G. Biv, but I’m giving you that red, orange, yellow, etc and I’m going full on.
I’m going to find a green to wear on my lip. Oh yes ma’am I am! I’m not talking my MAC Jealous(a sexy green in the bottle, but could be subbed by any neutral with a pink shimmer)either. I’m talking full on IGNORANT green.
But I digress, because the first color up will be MAC’s Peacocky(Blue).
