    Something like this, perhaps? Doesn't read as strongly gendered to me, and I think it's super cute, but ymmv!

    I really like those. They emit a sense of power. Makes me think of lions?

    So I MUST recommend a line of lippies: Super Stay Matte Ink by Maybelline.

    Seriously, this stuff is AMAZING. It lasts a long time (especially with primer, but even without primer the wear time is pretty great), it’s very pigmented (I’ve never needed more than two layers at MOST—usually I just need one), and the packaging matches the colors SUPER well, so you know exactly what you’re gonna get!!

    (They only look shiny in the swatches bc they're very freshly-applied there; they dry to a very nice matte!)

    It’s not super cheap, but it’s within reasonable drugstore makeup range (I think the most I’ve seen it sold for is $11, usually closer to $9 I think?), as far as price goes.

    Anyway, I’ve just totally fallen in love with these. (They need to make a black one so I’ll finally have the perfect black lippie...)

    Does anyone have any recommendation for foundation brands? I think I left my liquid foundation on the sink at work, which means it got tossed. I'm going to Ulta this afternoon. I don't live near a Sephora and I'd rather not order online - my skin is really problematic (combination and soooo sensitive). I want to spend under 25 ideally. Also I can't wear any of the Clinique or Bareminerals products I've tested because they all cast too dark on my skin.

    Not sure exactly which way your sensitivities lie and whether it is available where you live but I use the Kiko Milano Mat Mousse Foundation in 05 Natural Beige which shakes out to a decent neutral tone that neither clashes with my yellow-ish undertones by overcorrecting nor does it make me look like my liver is giving out. There's a decent range of undertones all with at least one shade lighter than mine still so that's worth a try maybe? It's nicely full coverage but I know not everyone is a fan of mousse-foundations for texture.

    Ooh, I bought a Milano blush I liked once. Mousse is fine - my skin is sensitive to heavy oils and mattifying agents (if they're really heavy - I've noticed if it just does some minor oil control, that's fine, but if it's meant to make your skin look like dry plastic that's gonna Fuck My Shit Up). If the mattifying properties aren't out of control intense it should be fine!

    Milano also has a couple other foundations in a similar price range so if the first one is a bad fit there might be another formula better suited! I personally really enjoy milano products for their affordable prices and extreme color pay off and interesting shade range in eyeshadows and lip products so i bounce around their productline a ton :P

    I really like the pigmentation with Milano! I'll be sure to look around at what foundations they have.

    @ZeroEsper I use a powder foundation from BornPretty which is actually really great on my sensitive problem skin (rosacea, just generally poor immune system). It's called a two-way cake and it has two shades of powder foundation. They're only a couple of dollars US and I actually overstocked these last time I ordered - I just wildly overestimated how much I use - so I have one unused and still boxed; if you want to try it I'd be happy to post it to you.

    Oh gosh, that's really kind of you, but I'd feel super bad putting you out like that! Thank you so much though, I really appreciate the offer.

    I did some fun things with my lipstick today and I MUST SHARE.

    I put a metallic gold (Nyx Wicked Lippies) over a dark matte red (Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink) and the results are, I must say, gorgeous! The gold doesn't look good on me at ALL on its own but it looks lovely over the red, I think.

  16. Very nice! Looks rather gothic.

    Question, is the greaser look still cool?

    i mean that kinda depends what kinda 'cool' you're talking about? It's not really current instagram stylish stuff and I don't think I know of any super established greaser subcultures in my hometown, but I'm sure there's places that get into the grease lightning look.

    I have heard reports from my dad that there´s a rockabillly bar here so I imagine at least adjacent subcultures are a thing.

    oh yeah, i suppose that would do it, I don't really do the bar thing so I wouldn't know xP There's a diner around where i live but i get looked at with some bemused confusion rolling up there in rockabilly xP

    Cool is irrelevant, imo. Dress however makes you happy! <3
