The lip product that I'm alluding to is one of the standouts from Marc Jacobs' new cosmetics line, available at Sephora. I've always been a fan of the brand's edgy, playful aesthetic, so of course my curiosities were piqued. While perusing the collection, my attention was drawn to a collection of vibrantly pigmented lip lacquers, the Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyls.
We all know I'm a sucker for a shiny red, so I tested out No Regrets, a warm strawberry shade. Instantly smitten! It felt tingly upon application, leaving my lips feeling plump and moisturized, with no hint of stickiness. The pigmentation is impressive, as is the wear-time. As the colour begins to fade, it leaves a flattering pinky-red stain that is equally flattering as its full-on incarnation. I really have no complaints about No Regrets!

As for the rest of the look, I opted for warm shimmery eyes and tawny-coral cheeks. I wanted the shadow and blush to be strong while still letting the lips be the central focus. For the eyes, I layered MAC Woodwinked (a frosty bronze) with Stila Oasis (a shimmery golden peach) to add warmth and a reflective finish. For cheeks, I combined the ultimate shimmery coral blush, BeneFit Coralista with a matte tawny peach, Illamasqua Beg. Love the way they looked together!

And a few more shots of the look:
And that's it! Glad I was finally able to feature No Regrets Lip Vinyl, as it's been a favourite for about a month now. And this look definitely got me excited for Fall-inspired makeup. Look out for more vampy lips and falling leaves hues to come!
