Rockalily Lipstick: Mixing it up

Hello Lovelies! Today’s post is all about Rockalily London Lipsticks as brought to you by the indomitable ReeRee Rockette. But this is not a review, oh no. You see, by now we all know how great these lipsticks are, the countless rave reviews already say enough. So I decided to have a little play with the four colours of Rockalily lipsticks I currently have in my pro kit (alas, I do not have any of the limited editions…yet!). Rockette Red, Roulette Red, Hot Rod Red and Pompadour Pink, the four constant colours in the main collection. Here I’ll show you a few different ways to wear your Rockalily lippies if you fancy having a play too!

Rockette Red:

Above is Rockette Red on it’s own. It’s a bright blue based red and is very striking.

Here I patted in some red glitter to make the lips sparkle. Unfortunetly the glitter I have isn’t that great (from ‘B never too busy to be beautiful’ which has since closed down) so I added Barry M red glitter lip gloss in colour No’6 over the top. You can kind of see a sparkle, but if I do this again in the future I will probably use something like the red cosmetic glitter from Make Up For Ever

Hot Rod Red:

Above is Hot Rod Red on it’s own. An orangey based red that looks great on olive toned skins and warm coloured redheads.

For the look shown above I added a slick of deeply pigmented orange lipgloss. I used Beauty Uk lip lust in colour No’9 ‘Cocktail’ I wish my photos did it more¬† justice, it looked so juicy and yummy.

Pompadour Pink:

Here is a photo of me wearing Pompadour Pink on it’s own. A blue based pink with a slight metallic sheen and a smell of lemon sherbert. Nom!

Ok, so here’s where I got a little wild! I painted on leopard print with my MAC Fluidline Gel Liner in ‘Blacktrack’. If I were wearing this out I would seal it with Benefit’s ‘She Laq’ . Just make sure you pat it on instead of brushing it on if you try this look. Otherwise you will smudge the design.

Roulette Red:

Above is Roulette Red worn on it’s own. The light isn’t quite right here as the lipstick is showing up rather orange when in fact it is a deep blue based red.

For this look I filled in the corners of my mouth with black eyeliner (you can use black lipstick but I don’t have any left). I then blended it out lightly. Deadly.

So, there you have it. Four different ways you can wear your Rockalily lipstick. Let me know how you get on if you have a go!

Glossy Box Video – The Perfect Red Lipstick (with Rockalily)

A few weeks ago I was asked to do a video shoot with Rockalily London Lipsticks for Glossy Box on how to find the perfect shade of red lipstick. Our models were the lovely ReeRee Rockette herself, burlesque performer Khandie Khisses and Aniqa. Glossy Box is a beauty subscription service with a difference. Pay £10 a month and you receive a beautifully wrapped box of 5 goodies to try out tailored to your personal requirements (you fill in a little questionnaire at the begining about your skin type, hair type etc). Rockalily lipsticks are taking off in a big way too. Providing women with a capsule collection of lipsticks for all those vintage mavens out there looking for the perfect shade of red.

Pia, who was organising the shoot was very lovely and exuded tons of positive and motivating energy. The shoot was great fun (there was a lot of giggling going on while filming, oops). I thought that only my hands would be shown in the video, if I’d known my face was going to be in it I would have powdered it, I look very shiny under all of those hot lights (just used to being on the other side of the camera I guess). Oh well, lesson learned!
