I feel really bad when I feature high end lipsticks here because I know some of you are poor starving students who cannot afford them. It wasn’t very long ago when I was in university myself, so I can totally relate.
Today’s post is especially for you.
This, my friends, is Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Fuchsia ($6). You read right; only $6.
Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Fuchsia
Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Fuchsia is beautiful bright blue pink. This lipstick builds to full intensity in two to three swipes. The colour is obviously freakin’ fantastic, and even better, the matte formula is to die for! It has the same melty consistency as a cream finish lipstick, but has a soft matte finish and lightweight feel like this other lipstick that is near and dear to my heart.

Naturally, I had to see how this colour compares to my two other bright pinks in my lipstick army. shu uemura Rouge Unlimited in PK376 is a lot warmer, and darker. YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Le Fuchsia is darker, and just a tad warmer than Joe Fresh Fuchsia.

Some Beauty Blogger Photography Tips from Yours Truly
Ever since I adopted the white background as per theNotice’s tips and tricks for beauty bloggers (which by the way, is a must-read!), I have a lot more things to consider when taking a good full face photo. Currently the list is as follows:
- Daylight: you needz it.
- There should never be any lipstick smear on my teeth or cheeks.
- My face should not look fat. Remember that 3/4 view is way more slimming than frontal view.
- If possible, crop the photo so that your face is off centre.
- When in doubt, blot. Your forehead and nose has a tendency to be greasy.
- (NEW!) My hair shalt not be frizzy. Have a bottle of MoroccanOil nearby.
So much work, eh? Any tips you would like to add?
