Look Lust-Worthy - Tried, Tested and Recommended

Today’s Look Lust-Worthy Tried, Tested and Recommended make-up look is all about smudged eyes!

I adored the look on Jacquelyn Jablonski and decided to try it for myself, since it seemed like a look that would be relatively easy to copy, despite my lack of any technical make-up application skills.

To achieve the look, I depended upon two products – my Chanel Inimitable Intense mascara to give my lashes some oomph and my Guerlain Terracotta Khol Kajal, to add the smudged colour. As I have previously reviewed the Chanel Inimitable Intense mascara, this Tried, Tested and Recommended post will focus on a review of the Guerlain Terracotta Khol Kajal.

Look Lust-Worthy - Tried, Tested and Recommended

As I tried to search for inspiration for today’s Look Lust-Worthy Tried, Tested and Recommended look, I found myself feeling completely unmotivated. Today was one of those days when I absolutely did not feel like wearing make-up. It exhausted me to think about putting it on and I loathed the thought of the hassle that I would have to go through when it came time to remove it at the end of the night. So, for today’s look, I decided to go with a “no make-up” make-up look.

Rather than subject myself to the struggle of attempting to apply an eyeliner, I decided to keep my eyes completely bare. No eye shadow, no liner, and no mascara. On my face, I stuck with my Five Essentials and skipped trying to fill in my brows. I went straight to my lips and picked up a lazy girl’s favourite make-up product – a tinted lip balm. As such, today’s Tried, Tested and Recommended look will feature only one product review – a review for Clinique’s Black Honey Almost Lipstick.

1) Clinique Almost Lipstick (in Black Honey) – $15.00

Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in Black Honey is one of my favourite Fall/Winter products.The colour is a perfect burgundy that I find to be flattering on many different skin tones. More sheer than a lipstick but still pigmented enough to show on the lips after one swipe, Black Honey rides that line between lipstick and balm in the most pleasurable way. Unlike many lipsticks, I find that I need no primer balm before applying Black Honey. Is it mosturizing enough to depend on during the dry winter season? No. Black Honey leaves your lips hydrated enough to get through several hours of wear but it does not have the power of a high-preforming balm. In terms of durability, Black Honey will get through a couple of hours of wear, but does not have the staying power of a tint. You will need to reapply throughout the day. Ultimately, what I like most about Black Honey is that when wearing it, I feel like I achieve a finished look without the effort that must be invested into a more complicated make-up application.

Look Lust-Worthy - Tried, Tested and Recommended

Today’s Look Lust-Worthy Tried, Tested and Recommended look was inspired by the exaggerated cat-eye and nude lip that was featured on the model in the Beauty Inspiration photo. While my look differs substantially from that of the model’s (I lack her make-up artist and bone structure), I attempted to recreated a version of the look using products I already had within my make-up bag.
