I’ve been struggling with this lipstick ever since I bought it. A lot of the time, if a colour isn’t quite right on me, I’ll give up on it, and give it to my friend or my sister. I bought it in the Viva Glam Gaga set that came out last Christmas, mostly because I love Gaga and because I wanted the cute makeup bag that came with it.
Here it is alone. It just looks… corpsey? Not attractive.

Here it is on the lovely Nicole, with a clear gloss over it. Now, I realise the lighting is VERY different, and our colouring is VERY different. BUT WHAT THE HELL. I REFUSE TO BELIEVE SOMETHING DOESN’T SUIT ME.
I’ve tried layering it over various liners, and that works out okay, I guess, but changing it from a neutral seems pretty pointless, now?

Cheeks: MAC Harmony, MAC Pinch o’ Peach.
Lips: MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2, Jordana Lips Out Loud in ASAP.
I *think* I’ve just about got away with it here. I’ve layered it with ASAP by Jordana, a super sparkly holo pink gloss which I think everyone should pick up. Yay? Nay?! Aaargh! I’m really terrified of looking like this:
Sorry random internet girl, but I am not digging the jizz lip look personally.
When a product doesn’t work for you, what do you do? Stubbornly plod along with it or give up?
