How I wore it: Illamasqua Lament and butter LONDON Tart with a heart


 

Would you have ever believed that I made it through my summer posts? (Well, I almost have) Independently of my “work load” I want to share a fall post with you today.

As I spend a lot of my waking hours in the office, I can’t help restore our economy by spending all my money on useless things, such as extreme amounts of clothes. You have, therefore, no idea how fond I am of online shopping.

Imagine that, especially in winter, I barely get to enjoy the light of day (it’s a given when the sun’s only up a couple of hours a day), and additionally, when I leave the office, all the shops are closed! I don’t want to start a ranting monologue about Austria’s unfriendly opening times of shops, in particular grocery stores, but let me just state that they are horrible for people who have a job.

Long story short, I recently (recently being a term open to a lot of interpretation) purchased a blouse from J.Crew, online of course. When it arrived, I was fascinated how off a color description can be and how off the color on the picture on a website of a company such as J.Crew can be.

Hence I ended up with a salmon-just-came-back-from-vacation-in-Hawaii colored blouse. I never wore anything like it and I don’t think it fits me best ever, but with matching nails, I dig it.

Anyhow, I figured you might want to see a close-up of my manicure. So here’s my gradient usisng Illamasqua Lament (base color) and butter LONDON Tart with a heart (iridiscent glitter).

I’m even wearing matching lipstick. I used a combination of a super girly pink OCC lip tar with a NARS pencil (satin matte, color: Lodhi).

  1. Die Öffnungszeiten in Ö sind wirklich eine Frechheit, ich hoffe das ändert sich bald. Das mit den online Beschreibungen und Farben ist mir auch schon passiert, ich find aber die Bluse steht dir. Ich mag die Farbe – bringt ein bisschen Freude in den tristen Alltag.
