Re: What are you wearing today?

Ouhhh, you have extra body in your hair today!  

 

The lipstick looks super pretty, on a scale from1-10 how would you rate the mufe palette?  I'm only asking cause I was very disappointed in the too faced lipstick palette and haven't enjoyed lip palettes since. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

My hair seems to live in Opposite Land and detached from the rest of society - the less I wash it, the more volume it gets. Day 4 hair is nice and bouncy. 

 

The MUFE Rouge Artists Palettes, when compared to MUFE lipstick, I'd give about an 8 or a 9.I have my own qualms with MUFE and the lipstick in general, but those aside... When you look at the price of the lipstick to the price of the palette, versus how much product you get, it can be a bargain - if the shades work for you. Someone with warm undertones will obviously look better in the warmer beige and pink palettes than the cool ones. I have neutral, but more inclination towards cool, and find that I can work with the first four palettes fairly well (Warm pink, Cool pink, Warm beige, and Cool beige).

The quality is pretty similar, though I have seen a few beauty blogs that have not had that experience. So far I'm 4 for 4 out of the set, so I am willing enough to dismiss those blogs as factory fault.

My only real complaint is that I personally prefer a bullet. There's less time involved, and the payout requires less building. But, that's not to say you have to spend forever building up color. I have experienced issues with only the shades labeled with single digits - and even then, not all of them. Most of the colors have a good brush payoff, and I'm finding that with the Intense shades that move from the "natural" range (vivd reds, pinks, etc), the extra control is nice because I feel like I have more say in the intensity of my lips than I would get with a bullet.

I do have them all and have been going through them in order, shade for shade (left to right), for the last few weeks, and will continue to do so. I bought a bunch of drawers and am trying to organize/downsize my lippies, so I'm going through all of them, starting with these since I did just get them and could still return one if the shades or quality were not up to par.

Re: What are you wearing today?

My hair must live in the same neighbourhood as your hair.  It moved after getting bleached.  Now it prefers me not to wash it in general.  I go about four days on average these days and it's mostly because I use product in my hair.  I fear I will never have naturally greasy hair again.  

i think I may give them a chance if I come across them . 

Re: What are you wearing today?

You will. It'll just take some TLC.

 

I recommend Olaplex's weekly treatment, and Alternas caviar hair masque. The bamboo one is good, too, but has a lot of protein, which you'd already be getting from Olaplex. Olaplex is like a keratin treatment, but better, so combining it with the Bamboo Colorhold masque could over-protenize your hair, causing more damage. So what you would be missing would by hydration.

 

Liquid Coconut, or if you can afford it, MCT oil in your hair a few hours before you wash is also a fantastic way to coat the strands with helpful, hydrating omegas and MCTs.

Also good, and I really hate saying this because I am NOT a fan of the company, is Bumble and Bumbles Hairdressers Invisible Oil Primer and the oil itself. I use the primer as a leave-in conditioner treatment. I put in a dime sized amount of the oil in the morning after each wash.

Alternas Anti Aging Blonde line is great for color treated blondes. I do love the bamboo Kendi mist, and the bamboo line is good all around, so it might help your hair as well without the neutralizing purple tint of the Blonde shampoo.

On the cheaper end, Biolage has been fabulously terrific for my hair on a tight budget.

Re: What are you wearing today?

You are my cool and collected friend.  Yep.  It has been decided.    Oh and you're really selling the mufe shadows.  Thanks for listing the coloursSmiley Happy 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Haha, thanks.. What makes me cool and collected?

 

And sure thing, no problem. I try to keep on top of that when I don't use a full palette or when I use singles.

Re: What are you wearing today?

It's the vibe you give off with your grin and your eyes😉

 

with singles I usually list the names but I  just say which palette I took from when using a palette.  Laziness on my part.  

Re: What are you wearing today?

Gwillickers, Hearts is right. You have a really cool chill look: happy and layed back. Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love this lipstick on you.  I know I've written that before, but it is still true.

Is your earring a tiny pill?

Re: What are you wearing today?

haha yeah they're tiny pills (black and white). my mother saw them on me and first thought i was wearing pearls, she was so proud. that pride did not last and quickly turned into (yet another) sigh. i said "but mother--pills not pearls !!". eh, what can i say, i like them--they're funny.

Re: What are you wearing today?

They are funny, and very cute!

 

i came home with my nose pierced when I was 13, and it's been a long series of those sighs ever since Smiley Very Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Something natural for a family dinner with the in laws today. I'm getting better with my Hourglass Modernist palette! 

 

Urban Decay Liar on lips. It is the perfect MLBB shade for me. That's how pigmented my lips are because this is noticeably a rosy brown color on many bloggers' photos I saw when I was researching with UD to buy!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love Liar on you. This is a really pretty, natural look Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

GREAT MLBB colour on you!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Liar is perfect!  

 

Ah, the troubles of having pigmented lips!  Nothing ever looks the way I expect it to.  Mine are so mauve they change everything.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yes, I share the same pain Smiley Sad I also find lighter shades really tough, they end up streaky no matter what, whether it's a gloss or lipstick.
