The Weekend Post #9: The Perfect Mix

I’m a lipstick addict. I would say that I enjoy nothing more beauty-wise than putting on my lipstick in the morning. I like to mix up my products depending on how I’m feeling and recently I’ve found the perfect mix of two products that gives my morning an extra boost.

I remember reading a tip in a magazine ages ago from a top Beauty Editor who liked to mix her products to create a super product. I was rather partial to mixing up my Mum’s beauty products into little pots when I was younger (shhh!) and creating bizarre colours of nail polishes by having a play around so I was curious as to what would happen if I threw on two of my favourite morning treats at the same time. And you know what it’s pretty fab! I am in love with the Rimmel Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick in Alarm, it definitely needs a review of its own. Some mornings I just put on lip balm and then slather this on my lips and I look nice and refreshed when I head out. If my lips need a little toning down, then I create my own little mix by adding a few swipes of the Rimmel Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick in Asia over Alarm and mix them in. Asia just adds a touch of neutral-ness and leaves my lips looking less ‘in your face’ in the morning. It’s not a mix that I use every morning, just when my makeup is looking a little bright and I love it!

Moral of the story – don’t be scared to mix it up every now and again, you might just find a gem of a combo! Do any of you have any secret mixes? Want to see a more in-depth review of the Rimmel Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick in Alarm? Let me know 🙂
