Don't you love when you find a new use for an old product that sits in the back of your makeup drawer? That's what happened with my MAC electro lipstick and I'm thrilled! You might remember this bright orange lipstick when it was released with the Neo Sci Fi collection in the summer. It's definitely not an everyday color. I couldn't resist its originality back then and purchased it. Since that time I think i've worn it maybe two times. I think it's the ultimate makeup guilt when you buy something and hardly ever use it.
One day, I was browsing through fellow blogger Seymone's site and noticed that she was using the new MAC Color Studio Finish Corrector in Pure Orange as a concealer for undereye circles. This makes total sense since they always tell you to use warm, salmon colored concealers for dark circles. I've had this item on my list for a while...but haven't made the final leap to purchase it. Recently however, I was able to pick up Makeup Forevers Camouflage Concealer palette #5 which contains a similar shade.
Then one day, it was like a light bulb went off. I've been a little sleep deprived lately and my dark circles are worse than ever. I was covering it up with my normal concealer but you could still see the shadow underneath the eye. In my head I was wishing I had the orange corrector. As I sat on it, I remembered my Electro lipstick! (Yummy411 has a post on it too, she used a similar orange lipstick and it worked for her as well!)
I applied the lipstick directly under my eye and then put my concealer on top. I finished off with foundation and looked at the results. One side of my face had the regular concealer and foundation and the other had electro as well. The electro definitely made a difference.
I used the same trick on a Trash the Dress Shoot and it worked just as well!
Why don't you guys give it a try and let me know how it works for you!
Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
