About Lana Del Rey I like this vintage touch. Her hair, nicely waved, so much upgraded when changed from white - yellowish. Amazing how much class she gained in this new color.
And it doesn't even matter if she altered her lips or not... now, like that, she looks amazing. Her look went into a good direction. So much appreciation for this new image. She just stopped looking so 'typically'. Piece of Art.
I just don't understand why to deny it. 'Have you done something with your lips?' Why not to just say 'Yes, I did. I feel and in my opinion look more attractive now.'
Does these things influence sale and popularity? Are we really so shallow?
Who cares? I guess she's adult enough to make own decisions. Even if she decides to become a product of music factory, just like a chewing gum in another flavour. Even if all this has nothing to do with her ideas and her creativity. Perhaps she has never even written anything and had nothing to do with her new image idea... as long as she sings like this, it doesn't matter at all.
The more important is... How is it possible she looks so amazing in this hair? In a Satinette colour, the most common natural and the most I-want-to-run-away-from-it.
I think it's so similar to my roots... I look in it undoubtedly like a Transvestite.
Imagine the world where you don't need to dye your hair simply because your natural make you look prefect.
So how is it ???
Maybe it's not hair but lips that make it special.
About lips... I always put something into my ears before I approach cosmetics counter. Even when I say 'No, Thank you. And no, no more bets please! I don't need your advice.' it usually doesn't work and I end up listening to a shop assistant or better, makeup stylist, explaining which color is absolutely stunning for me and how this lip liner fits to this lipstick. That's why few drinks before help a lot.
Then appears on horizon this dangerous threat that I can actually leave with a pink, saumon shade and a lip liner that doesn't match to anything I already have and even doesn't match to the lipstick I just mistakenly bought.
Sometimes when I feel I'm breaking I just scream 'no pink! no pink! no pink!'
And this is how I successfully became owner of:
With Dior lip gloss. Dior Addict. 077. Crystal Gloss. Makes the red-red just simply soft red. But then after some time it clusters unpleasantly so I rather wear it without.
I use it with very missed lip liner advised by shop assistant in House of Fraser: Chanel. 37. Framboise. Never do it !!!
It was impossible to match one, even after checking all brands.
But it goes perfectly well with my old and inexpensive, only 3.80EUR, lip liner: Star Gazer. 10.
Also I do have Star Gazer. 135. Lipstick. As red as lip pencil. More than Rouge Dior and more covering and lasting. Star Gazer is a brand I found on Restyle.pl
Rouge Dior is not at all constant-like-lipstick. It doesn't like to stick around. It has to be corrected quite often. It doesn't cover very well. But it has light fresh look and doesn't smudge much.
However I'm not going to buy it again. I don't really like the texture. I don't like the package. I'm planning to replace it with Too Faced Runaway Red.
Shiseido smoothing lip liner. RD 305. is just perfect for Bingo.
Rouge Bingo stays in place for-almost-ever. Gives just a bit smudging problem, but like ordinary lipstick. It's perfect. Well, balanced lipstick in every way. But the colour is quite definite and strong.
Too Faced has incredible Border Lip Liner. Transparent, kind of wax, used right around border lips so lipstick stays in place.
Lip liner that perfectly fits for this one: Elizabeth Arden smooth line. Orchid 06.
Just like Diorific, after cleaning there are still some remains, hard to remove. It keeps that well. Colour is dark, deep, described as blue red. Heavy accent. There's something about the thickness and the package and the feeling of moisture lips that definitively I'll get it again and explore some more colours.
