FOTD- Daytime look with MAC Chatterbox lips

Hi everybody! 

So I decided I should get a bit more interactive with my blog and take pics of my fave looks instead of just bleating on about different products etc etc. I am sharing with you a very simple look of the day today, and I apologise for the lack of photos and bad quality of some, but I just really wanted to capture MAC Chatterbox lippie in all it's glory. 

So I was meeting a friend in town today for coffee and decided I would go for a natural (ish) daytime look, and because it was nice and sunny outside today and I felt like wearing pink, I decided to go the whole way and wear pink lips too, but I didn't want anything too dramatic for a daytime look. I live in a small town, hot pink lips might be a bit much! Anyways, having decided today was a lippie day, my choice had to be MAC Chatterbox from the Amplified collection. I just love this. It's a creme lipstick but unlike some other MAC lippies (Ruby Woo in particular), this is not drying at all, and I find the staying power really great. It's a bright pink but I wouldn't say it leans towards hot pink, IMO it's more of a wearable daytime pink. I am, however, a bit pink biased! (No Legally Blonde quips please, I think I have heard them all at this stage *sigh*)

The formula of the Amplified lipsticks is just unreal, I find the staying power great and the colour does bleed or melt, it kind of evenly fades with time, but I don't have any hugely contentious bone when it comes to reapplying.- it fades so evenly that it kind of leaves a pink tint on the lips but no patches and it really lasts so long. It's a creme finish, not matte, not sheer, not shimmery- this is definitely one of my favourite pinks. I have very pale skin (NW15/20 territory- Casper might as well be my first cousin!) and I think this is very complimentary. 

I personally like to go easy on the eye makeup when I want to go for a popping lip, so today I just went for really simple matte cream/baby pink eyes with a slightly darker pink applied lightly in crease. and a simple line of eyeliner, no flicks or wings, and of course lashings of mascara! I wanted the rest of my face to be naturalish so I applied a nice light pink blush on apples of my cheeks and opted for a dewy foundation look. Spring is in the air after all!
