Sugar Skull Halloween face makeup.

Just thought I'd share my look this Halloween. I actually went to the pub like this with a friend on halloween night (a Thursday) and unfortunately found nobody else was dressed up. Awkward moment. Typical Beth.

The look was done with Stargazer white face powder, a black eyeliner, black eyeshadow and a red lipstick. A purse friendly look if I do say so myself!,

Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick Black Cherry (477)

 This lipstick has been in my collection for a good year roughly. It was my first plunge into dark lipsticks (and initiated a dangerous addiction) 
Its a beautiful deep burgundy/red.
It retails for £7.49 at Superdrug, so is a slightly more expensive high street lipstick. But like almost all other Revlon products, it's worth it. 

It has a relatively thick texture but not too thick and as the name suggests has a lustre finish. It feels nice and moisturising on the lips. It requires precise application as it is a dark colour so a lip brush and lip liner are helpful! (I use MAC "vino" lip liner)
I adore the colour of this lipstick as although it is a deep colour, it is by no means too dark. 

The only downfall of this lipstick is that the application is inconsistent , Ie) When applying the lipstick some parts will come up darker than others. However this is not a major problem and it also is not as apparent with a lip liner underneath. 

I think this lipstick is a great way to branch out into more bold dark lips as it is definitely still wearable,
"Black cherry" with no lip liner.
