RBR Gracious Arasari and Know What Lies Are For Applied

As promised here are the products I talked about yesterday applied. I think you will probably see what I mean about the lipstick colour in the picture taken with flash. I think I can get away with it and probably with a bit of gloss I could warm the colour a little. Let me know what you think.

Apologies for the colour of my brows. I've been using a Karin Herzog cream, it's yellow and seems to have made my brows look bleached. I didn't spot it until I looked at the pictures!

RBR Know What Lies Are For lipstick


  1. Honestly? it looks great on you, not sure why you were worried! :)

  2. i find it pretty for a daily wear !!


  3. I think it looks great on you too, and actually looks exactly like the usual colours you wear.. Why were you thinking you couldn't get away with it?

  4. Hi Charlie, thanks! I normally go for more pinky-browns yet I felt this was more of caramel brown. I was worried that it had a whiff of 90's brown on me.

    Hi Lily! Thank you.

    Hey Cheeky! I was worried that it was too much of a flat brown for me. It's not as pinky as I would normally go for. I think a slightly different eye look might be more complimentary too.

  5. Ah ok, well to me it looks very very similar to the colours you normally wear.. I know what you mean though, there's a fine line..
    I have a Viva Glam 1 lipstick (Mac in case there was doubt) and it's a flat browney nude, and to me , it really looks brown and a bit flat and dull.. But I am sure really, no one would notice it!

  6. I think both colours are very flattering, but I see why you might have had second thoughts about the lipstick. I do agree that a different eye look would probably flatter this lip more. All in all, in my opinion, it's a win!
    So, I got my E Bess order and everything you've read about the shadows is true! It's soooo beautiful...I won't even attempt to describe the colour, as you can see so many great swatches online, but the quality, silkiness, ease of blending and appearance are outstanding. Very-very happy bunny here.
    Let me just close my comment by stating that you should truly be ashamed of yourself. Because of YOU young lady, I went and ordered Gracious Arasari with which I fell in love straight away...along with a few other pieces from RBR (hint: Replica shall be duly castigated too)...There, happy now????? :-)

  7. I like this look (and lipstick) on you. I think it looks very beautiful!

  8. When I read your second paragraph I thought I might get to see some crazy coloured eyebrows, but alas no.. ;)
    I think the whole look is beautiful,neutral classics. Your skin looks really healthy and even.
    Laughing at Nina's comment x

  9. @Cheeky Beauty: Your right, probably no one else would notice but me. I wore again today with different eyeshadow and felt a lot more comfortable though.

    @Nina: Well, it looks like my work here is done ;). Tsk at that naughty Replica too. I think that EB eyeshadow needs to go back to the top of my wishlist immediately!

    @dempss01: Thank you so much, I really appreciate your opinion. The lipsticks feel so moisturising on it’s hard not to love them.

    @Replica: I’ll have to draw them in with a coloured pencil sometime to freak you out ;). Illamasqua did a rather lovely look with some blue brows. Maybe I should give it a try……

  10. I love the slightly brown tone, and in fact I tend to go for similar lipsticks atm too! ;) xxx

  11. Thanks, I'm glad you like it! xx
