So, as you could probably tell, my little squishes, I don't really get the concept of "wearable shades" - ie, safe, daytime shades in nonoffensive colours - reds, pinks and the like. I don't understand what makes red "acceptable" for daytime wear, but purple isn't okay, and green is just, well, out of the question. Not to mention black lipstick!
Black lipstick, as we know, is one of those big babybat mistakes. It's a mallgoth thing. Troo Goffs(TM) don't wear black lipstick. (Alphagoth Ex was adamant of this. I don't know why we stayed together as long as we did.) As we also know, I, Kitty Lovett, Queen of Cats, love black lipstick. I adore it. I don't know if it's just that I like the way it looks on me, or if it's the fact it's one of the few lipsticks you can buy for three dollars at Cos-Cut that would be more-or-less the same as a $45 one from MAC. Seriously. Put it on, add some balm (i suggest having a different coloured balm for every colour type. This way, eventually, the colour will stain the balm and you can apply a very sheer layer of colour), and some gloss if that's your thing, and there you go, it's pretty much exactly the same as high-end brands.
Another thing we know about me is that I am a slut for Manic Panic. Here are the ones I have so far:
-Creatures Collection "Deadly Night" (metallic purple)
-"Vampire Red" (a dark but blue-based red)
-"Blood Red" (exactly what the name implies! very dark, but brilliant red)
-"After Midnight Blue" (dark, metallic blue)
-"Green Envy" (a metallic, bright, poison green - or, Green Fairy Green. Like, exactly)
As you can prrrobably tell, I am not stopping til I...til I...
Anyway, I went as far as to advise Lillian Lowe, one of my favourite bloggers, to buy "Deadly Night", as she said on facebook she had been eyeing it. It is no doubt one of my favourite colours. Metallic purple. It is a bit drying, and tends to flake a bit on me, but that's all just because of my braces, and nothing some balm and reapplication can fix.
I don't mind having to re-apply frequently (as I never shut up, carry a waterbottle with me and eat constantly), so it's not a bother, losing some of the colour a bit. :D
Anyway, I got a bit sidetracked. What I meant to talk about is the fact that it seems so strange to me that one should not wear blue lipstick on a weekly basis. I don't know if it's just me and my aspergers misunderstanding of social moores here, but doesn't it seem odd that neon coral lipstick is okay, but not a subtle, dark red-purple colour?
|I don't know if you guys remember, but I wore this to |
school the next day.
No, I am not doing a Doe Deere and being all OH I AM ON A MISSION TO FREE THE RAINBOW WOOOO (by having an extremely limited colour range of shit lipstick apparently) and claiming people who wear regular colours, like red and pink and nudes, are plain or boring. What I am claiming is, why isn't it okay for me to wear whatever damn colour on my lips as I please, and why do I need to have any reason other than "oh, I was in a peacock-metalic-blue-green mood today"?
Why, oh WHY, are orange, pink, beige and red acceptable, but I immediately get into a game of 20 Questions everytime I wear something other than those?
Any insight on this, my little squishes?
PS: immediately launching into another rage post.
