Girl About Town

Yummy as a raspberry macaron, MAC's Girl About Town hue has been brightening up my days and my face for the past few days. I have spoken already on this blog about my admiration for the great Elsa Schiaparelli, whose Shocking Pink was a signature color, and with this lipstick, I feel like I am paying tribute to her untamed spirit.

bold, yes bold. (but feeling slick etc, it happens everytime i were nice lingerie, pour moi!)
and was it a ladurée macaron?

ANONYMOUS - I'm really not a lingerie kinda gal, I'm more into cotton white undies...
The pictures were taken not at Ladurée but at a wonderful pastry shop and "salon de thé" on the boulevard Exelmans (16th arrondissement), where the macarons are actually quite delicious.

Tres jolie!

And yes, "wicked" does sum up my husband's sense of humor. (I do like it very much.)

Mary-Laure said...

MARIE - if you're clueless about lipstick, why not start with a light pink? Berry colors also look good on everyone...

Nice, I love the colours of MAC, It looks nice on you.
I'm really more a chapstick or gloss girl, but sometimes I should try it I think!

have a great day,
Solange

Lovely, I heart pink too! I am currently considering trading in my trademark red collar for a blinged up pink strassy version. What do you think?

(oh and how unexpected to read you giving makeup advice to your beloved readers...)

Mary-Laure said...

TAOCITO - hmmm, strass... Considering how white and fluffy you are I would choose something very bright but sleek. Unless you want to look like Paris Hilton's latest purchase?

Lovely color!

Whitney said...

As a fellow fan of bright lip color, I love this on you! :)

Mary-Laure said...

WHITNEY - but I never saw you wear lipstick! Do you save it for outside the dance studio?
