#NYFWMUC - 9/15/09 - Black Lips Edition

So today's inspiration came from all of the bold lip looks we are seeing from NYFW this go round'.  I originally wanted to do an orange lip (that MAC Orange lipmix is CALLING me :armscratch) but I knew I had to help facilitate a meeting today and didnt want the attendees to look at me crazy so I opted to go with a darker tone but not too much - in comes Lancome and Afrobella to the rescue!

Back in July the beautiful Afrobella held a giveaway on her site for the Lancome Color Fever Gloss in Piha Black - check it here - so every once in a blue moon I enter a giveaway on a whim and this was one of those times.  You had to create a look around the lipgloss, I was feeling froggy so I jumped!  Check out the post to see what I chose as my look...well lo and behold I actually was one of the three winners! GO ME, GO ME! :cabbagepatch

I was so excited and still am as may already be evident.  So since I wanted to pay an homage to Fall and be a bit bold with the look today, I broke it out.  Check me out below to see how I pulled it together...

do you see how the flash picks up on the sparkle in the gloss?  How bout' yeah?!
Some people see black and get all bent outta shape but from looking at this picture you can see that it isnt too much, its just about right actually.
