Model Co. Duo Lip Essential in Dusk


In this entry, I will feature the Model Co. duo lip essential in Dusk. I got this lip duo as a magazine freebie, and am very amazed at the quality of the product itself. I’ve never been a fan of lip gloss as I felt that the texture of most lip gloss in the market is too sticky for my liking. Furthermore, with the advancement of technology in the beauty industry, a lot of companies had come out with lipsticks that have the same glossy effect. Nevertheless, this lip duo had rather revolutionize the way I think of a lip gloss. For people out there who hated lip gloss just like me, you might want to try out model co.

You can use the duo together if you like or you can pair the lip gloss with another lipstick of your choice. One of my favourite ways to wear the lip gloss is to have Ever Hip by MAC and then top it off with the Model Co. Lip gloss in Dusk. This way, the lip gloss mutes out some of the brightness in Ever Hip, making it a very wearable colour for school.

Why am I loving this?

  • Gives quite decent colour payoff
  • Lasts a good 2 – 3 hours of wear on me.
  • It feels so smooth and creamy on my lips. It glides on my lips, covers my lips in a comfortable film like texture.
  • Does not dry up my lips.
  • My lips feel rather moisturise when I apply them.
  • Dusk is a “your lips but better” colour and would complement most skin tones.
  • Very work and school appropriate colour.
  • Very travel friendly, a lip gloss and a lip stick all in one.

Never be hopeful. Never.

Hello! I just uploaded a new look to my Lookbook. Its quite depressing to realise that wordpress(free) doesn’t really support Java though. I used to blog in Blogger/Tumblr/Livejournal and everything was easy to do and stuff. WordPress has proved to be more complicated and restrictive. Sighh.

Anyway, this was what I wore to Chouquette. I got the dress from ASOS when they were having a further 10% off their sale items. It is a beautiful turquoise colour and I love it to death. I love playing with the dress, thinking that I’m from the ancient chinese dynasty where people hide themselve in those sleeves, peeking through their sleeves shyly.

The shoes are from RUBI. Pretty standard pair of bow flats, but the best part of it was that, I got it for only 5 bucks! I was at Harbourtown(Direct Factory Outlet in the Gold Coast), and RUBI was the first shop I went it. Walked past the sales rack and in less than 1 mins time, this baby was mine.

Oh, and the bag! Don’t let me start with the bag. The bag’s from Aldo. To be honest, I rarely step into Aldo, cause their shoes are always so tempting but very expensive at the same time. I never owned a pair of shoes that’s more than $100  as I can never part with that kind of money for shoes. Nevertheless, the bag was on sale as well for $20 and I knew I had to grab it immediately. Its just the perfect red for any kind of outfit.

Come to think about it, the whole outfit was bought on sale. Even the earrings and the lipstick I’m wearing. The feather earrings was from Topshop. I went though a phase of having a lot of feathered accessories, like my headbands, and earrings. They are just so pretty to look at.

The lipstick is from Shiseido. Surprise surprise, it was on sale too! I got it on one of the Shiseido Friends and Family sale. I only got this colour because I saw a girl wearing a similar colour and she look so pretty with it. Probably more a winter colour, but who cares! The colour comes off sheer, but definitely build-able, as shown in the picture below. Photo taken using my ipod touch.

Do please help me hype my lookbook photos too..
