Colorful Lip Look

The unique colors in my lipstick drawer tend to get forsaken.  It makes me sad, but I have such an inclination toward the nude shades in my collection, so I typically just pass up playing with purples, oranges, reds, etc.  Today I wanted to try out Stone Fox from the NYX Liquid Suede line.  Years ago I had been wanting Space Cake by Melt Cosmetics.  It was always sold out, and honestly buying it online felt pretty ridiculous, even for a makeup lover like me. Melt doesn’t have low prices, and as a blueish greenish grey, I knew this wasn’t going to be a good investment in terms of cost per wear.  Stone Fox is a great dupe for Space Cake though, and at a much better price point for me. I am trying to think of a cute Halloween costume that I could incorporate it with this year, so that I will actually get the chance to wear it in public.  Lamely, I am not the kind of person that would wear this out during the day.  

I paired Stone Fox with Makeup Geek’s Untamed, Desert Sands, and Tiki Hut, and Mally Beauty’s gold highlight in the inner corner.  If I were to redo this makeup knowing I was going to wear Stone Fox, I would probably go with something more neutral like MUG Latte in the crease, a dark outer corner, and something champagne and shimmery on the lid like Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy or MUG in the Spotlight.  MUG Untamed was calling my name for some reason though.  

A more tame fun color that I switched into in the photos above is Requiem by Kat Von D.  This lilac based milky pink is so pretty.  It adds a nice pop of color without being super in your face.  This one is super cute so I have no excuse for not wearing more often!

Are there lipsticks that don’t get enough attention in your collection?  I definitely need to make an effort to use mine more often!  And if you have any cool Halloween ideas that would work with Stone Fox, please help me out! Thank you 😀
