The Colour of Obsession. Yumeko’s Weekly Challenge

It is with much disappointment that I don’t often have time to participate in \Yumeko’s \ weekly photo challenges but this week’s was a real corker and I just had to make time to join in.

Now the aim of the game is to have a good old rummage through our makeup collections and dig out some of the following colours:


I have learned that I am tediously boring with black despite the fact that I seem to have a lot of black clothing, I seem to have distanced myself from true black makeup aside from the usual suspects.

The sooty loot: Tokidoki Arte PaletteL’oreal burning black InfallibleZoya KiRimmel Black OutK Palette Real Lasting EyelinerMajolica Majorca Lash King Mascara.


 I learned that I buy plenty of brown but rarely reach for it these days and so I cannot find the bulk of my collection.

The mucky militia: Lunasol Geminate liquid liner in Khaki BrownNARS cream shadow in PonderosaCanmake Moist Souffle Shadow in Mocha Brown RBR in Bohemian Waxwing Visee Smacky Glam palette in Bitter Brown Visee Duras Ambient palette in Beige Brown.


I have learned that I am officially rubbish with white makeup. I have a skinny collection that includes a cheat! See that Lunasol palette? It has pink and brown and silver in in too!


The Pale party: Lunasol LE Xmas 2009 White Lightning Palette Lunasol Germinate liner in RBR Mattifying Primer NARS Albatross Highlighter Dior Sparkle Shine lipgloss Too Faces Shadow Insurance in Candlelight.


I like orange and it shows! I will happily wear it anywhere…I have been tangoed!

\The Most Popular Colour in My Collection

Predictable but true! Red is the colour of my makeup obsession!

I wear it on my lips, cheeks, nails and eyes. I love red and I cannot help it and yes this is a problem.

Red the colour of guts, danger, determination that little can hide behind. I think I like it so much because it is so assuredly forthright.

Thank you Yumeko for this challenge and look into the psychology of my makeup!
