March has officially started and brought along beautiful, sunny weather – something I appreciate more than anything at the moment. I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of winter. Not so much winter itself, because snow is nice and staying cosy while wrapped in a warm blanket has its charms, but I cannot deal with grey skies and naked trees that well. Remember when I showed you Bipa’s lipliner in Orchid? On the day that I bought Orchid I also picked up Fire, a fantastic matte brick orange lipliner. Turns out it’s almost a perfect match for Mac’s So Chaud Matte lipstick. While I don’t find that So Chaud needs to be worn with a lipliner underneath, a few of you might appreciate Fire as a possible dupe for Mac’s So Chaud.
There’s one big, major thing that has changed in the past few days, as you may or may have not noticed. I decided to stop wearing my hair straight. In my case, puberty didn’t just arrive with mood swings and greasy hair and skin, it also gave me quite the nice gift – curls. For as long as I can remember I absolutely despised my curls and straightened my hair constantly. Last week though, I stumbled across a book called Curly Girl by Lorraine Massey, a curly girl’s handbook to beautiful curls that has transformed many curly heads. I am currently enjoying this little journey as it is very interesting to see what a drastic impact straightening can have on your hair.
Back to this lipliner, though. As all the other ones from this line, you receive 1 g or product for €1,79. It is both incredibly creamy and easy to apply. You could definitely wear it on its own like many wear the deep red/berry lipliner in Orchid. Mac’s So Chaud indeed shows stronger hints of red than Fire (Hand swatch: LEFT Mac So Chaud, RIGHT Bipa in Fire), but when applied on top of each other, they get along like best friends.
