Go out with a BANG!
What I love about this new, little label is that all products are animal-friendly, have no added chemicals, and they smell DELICIOUS.
The tagline for New Zealand make-up company BANG! Cosmetics is “your weapon against boring” which is exactly what they are.
Below: I wear pretty pink shade MISS MUCK.
This is the easiest colour in the world to wear and looks good on just about anyone.
I got two friends to try it both with different skin tones, and it looks great as both a blush and a lipstick.
FERRIS is a sort of neon purple with a pink base. I really, really like this colour though it isn’t for everyone. You need to be into bold colours (even though it feels creamy and smells yummy like a gloss, it is NOT, and the colour goes on strong). I would recommend it if you want to try something a bit different other than a standard pink, but you still want to stay soft looking.
Below: I wear BEDAZZLE. Black is not for the fainthearted. Especially when you do not want to look like you fell out of a Goth shop. Personally, I’m a major fan of black lipstick, it reminds me of the 20s when dark lips, cigarette holders and long gloves were a prerequisite for stepping out the door. This particular colour is especially awesome because it has specks of gold in it, which means it’s less likely to wash your face out because it’s black, but with a warm base.
If you have ever owned the original M.A.C Morange shade then you will be a major fan of this orange shade, SILKY. I had Morange a few years ago and have never found an orange quite as awesomely vibrant since. This isn’t exactly the same as the M.A.C one, which is fine, as a little ORANGEinality (like what I did there?) is always a plus, and it’s quite lovely on. This is the colour for you if you’re a red girl but want something that’s more fun - and surprisingly - orange goes with more than red!
What $23 will bring you is a little pot with a brush (so you don’t need to get your fingers stained.)
Another awesome fact about these lipsticks is they are multi-purpose, so you can use them as blush (though obviously you’re not going to want to use the black as a blush.)
