Ever wonder what Lipstick Bandits do to have fun ? We play with red lipstick, of course…oh, and we play with shimmer and glitter. The results of such an evening of lipstick debauchery is what you see below…

Hourglass Siren and Stila 24kt gloss in Golden Charm

Although I realize that Hourglass Siren is *technically* not a lipstick, it’s pigmented enough and thick enough in my opinion to be at least considered a liquid lipstick.

Stila Golden Charm and Hourglass Siren

See what I mean?!?!!? *flails* Siren is an amazing lipgloss/stain/lipstick. Stila Golden Charm is packed with golden sparkle, marry the two and you have one amazing lip combo!

Golden Siren

Red sparkle amazing-ness!

Red Sparkle FOTD


Hourglass Siren and Stila Golden Charm

(oops, it looks like I lost an eyelash mid-way of photographing, please ignore! lol!)

I loved playing with combinations to find the right one and this one turned out exactly as I envisioned in my mind.

Other products I used:

Face- Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Garnier Anti-Dark Circle Rollerball, Chanel Rose Ecrin Blush

Eyes- Dior Smoky Khaki Trio (gold shade buffed in all over, small amount of sparkly green over the top) Burberry Porcelain for highlight, YSL False Lash Effect Mascara

    I wanted to buy Siren!!! I was so close, too, but then I convinced myself “No, you don’t need that, when the hell are you ever going to wear that?” πŸ™ And now I’m on a red lip ban. NOOOOOO.

    Gorgeous, so very gorgeous, Danielle! It looks so polished and sparkly πŸ˜€

      Hourglass ftw! Someday, after your red lip ban is over, this shade will be yours. For no other reason than it’s stunningly beautiful! πŸ™‚

  6. Hourglass kills me!! You and Larie-ahhhh! Need more of it in my life!That gloss is gorgeous on you!!

  7. Girl, you are NOT fooling around with the bling! *stares wide-eyed and sighs pitifully*

  8. ohh I love that you used a coppery red! It almost reminds me of a beautiful sparkly ornament, gorgeous look πŸ™‚

    Also, I hardly ever wear gloss anymore, but Stila Golden Charm is just so packed with glittery wonderful-ness. I think I need it, don’t you?

    I just commented on another blog I was reading about finding a gold glitter lipgloss to pair over red. The stila lipgloss looks perfect. I’m loving that red hourglass lipgloss too! Never tried their lipglosses but after seeing your swatch, I def want to.

    • Danielle says:

      Oh, Hourglass has a stellar lipgloss formula. Siren is a gorgeous shade. I hope the Stila gloss is what you are looking for, glad to help you find it!

    I’ve had my eye on Siren since it was used on the runways for the La Perla. It’s like a summer version of Chanel Dragon.. sort of. Absolutely gorgeous.
