LOOK: Hot Red lips with MAC Powerhouse



I got bored from revision so I randomly smacked this hot red lipstick on. It's called MAC Powerhouse, and it instantly made me feel like rockstar lol! Felt so good that I was re-energized to revise again haha xx Enjoy!

  9. Yes, Plink! is a good one to own ;) I love Myself! haha, i feel odd saying that. I know some people have said that it is too similar to one's natural lipcolor, but it does show up nicely on my pigmented lips. I think it is worth swatching the next time you stop by MAC. I wish it wasn't limited edition because I have been wearing it every day since I bought it!

  15. Thanks everyone~! :) xx

    @LOLanne- Aww I'm sure you can pull red lips off! For starters, try my look, even just at home!. Grey/black eyeliner on the upper lash line, mascara, and the lipstick! Don't forget to use a red lip liner too. :)

  16. @Beautygirl24- The All Races All Ages All Sexes collection isn't out yet in the UK, but like for all the launches, I plan my wishlist lol. And I was contemplating whether to pick Myself lipstick up or not :) I'll make sure to check it out when its available next week!! I'd love to see a look of you wearing it xx

  19. @Sher- Yep, its a shocking bright red! My minimal eyemakeup did well with it :)

  20. @Jamaican Girl- Thank you! Russian Red also comes in lipstick form actually. And I think that's pretty similar too! And it would look awesome with that Russian Red lipglass you're talking about! ♥

  21. PUAHAHA! :) I love red lips! I just wish my natural lip shape without smiling didn't look so weird! o_O But your natural lip looks great :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. @lindah- I love red lips too! Well, my lips on the swatch are half-smiling :) Using lip brushes with red lippies help define the lips too!

  23. i LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS COLOUR!
    I was just looking for it on the MAC site, is it discontinued?
    Because I was thinking of getting it... :(

    You look totally gorgeous in that colour though!

  24. LOVE this look!
    Actually I don't like red lipstick that much, maybe because I can't pull it off that well, but it looks so great on u with ur simple eye make up and such ^^

  25. I feel compelled to comment, because Powerhouse is the very FIRST lipstick that ever actually looked RED, not pink, on me!
    It's long since discontinued, but I have it backed up.
    I'm wearing it this weekend, in fact.
