I Want To Be Cheryl: L'oreal Colour Richie Lipstick Plum PassionTuesday, October 16, 2012
So you should all know by now, I'm a bit of a fan of Cheryl Cole. From her big bouncy hair, to her cute dimples, I always find myself thinking ' ah I want to be you Cheryl!' I was pretty excited when I heard Cheryl was going to feature in Xfactor at judges houses with Gary Barlow. I couldn't wait to see what she was wearing, what her hair would be like, what make up look she would go for and boy I wasn't disappointed. Cheryl went for a very autumnal look, smokey brown eyes and a beautiful plum lip. I'd never had any interest in plum lipstick before but all of a sudden I found myself thinking ' I NEED THAT LIPSTICK IN MY LIFE.' Luckily it was a L'oreal number, in fact it was their Colour Richie Plum Passion shade. I knew where I was heading the next day. Boots.
Luckily without having to wrestle any other Cheryl fans to the floor, I picked one of the last Plum Passion's up along with a cheapo plum lip liner, I haven't watched Pixiwoo's videos for years and not learnt anything you know. I then got home and thought....'hmm so what am I going to do now?' This is quite a scary colour for someone who finds a peachy coral 'daring' so all of a sudden I was thinking about adorning my lips in Plum? Was I crazy? I thought, 'if Cheryl can do it I can.' I also have the same colour hair as Cheryl and similar colouring so it must suit me if it suits her right? I first of all fannyed around with this lipstick, using it as a tint, then finally I grew some balls and applied it how it should be applied, in all it's plum passiony glory. Of course it has taken getting used to, I find it works best with a smokey brown eye and not much blush, it's all about the contour. Of course I haven't actually worn it out of the house *yet* but I promise I will. I even filmed a Youtube video wearing it, so if I can brave youtube surely I can brave the real world.
Sadly I am not transformed into Cheryl, but I do feel a little like her. I just need to practise my Geordie accent which despite watching endless amounts of Geordie Shore I still can't do! In terms of longevity this does last quite well, it's not amazing but hey it's like £7 so what can you say. I would recommend a lip liner as it's pretty tricky to apply, the other day I applied it and looked like I'd had too much ribena! I'm sure I'll get better though and who knows I could be getting my Cheryl on and wearing this plum lip throughout the whole of Autumn/Winter. Ooh la la.
So have you got your Cheryl on? Or are you sticking to nudes? I hope you've all had a good day, I'm off to go practise that Geordie accent.
