Bridal Makeup for Lips - Bobbi Brown Tulle #34

For my wedding, I ended up picking Bobbi Brown Tulle #34 for my lipstick. Finding the right shade was really hard for me especially since I hardly ever wore lipstick and on top of that making sure it coordinated with the rest of my makeup, dress and my theme!?! Thinking about it now gives me a headache.

I went to every single cosmetic counter in David Jones but no one was able to help, they all provided the same response "it depends on what you like" how do I know what I like if I'm not use to wearing lipsticks???!!! Some suggested to try the long lasting lip products as they were popular for weddings, which I did but they dried out my lips and I didn't want sultana looking lips on my wedding day. I opted for something that provided moisture but on the downside I would have to re-apply every couple of hours so I picked Bobbi Brown Tulle #34.

 

 
I forgot to take a pic of it when I first bought it and now the photo is a little gross after I used it a few times lol
 
 It looks a little darker in the photo than what it actually looks like.
Here is what it actually looks like on the day. I had lip liner on but I don't know what colour it is. I didn't ask my MUA, she just match the shade of my lippy. Bridal comb is from this post. I haven't blogged about my earrings, not sure if you guys want to see it in detail?

I'm actually quite happy with this lipstick, it's the perfect pink and looks natural too. My mum the typical asian wanted bright red lips but I refused, you cannot use bright red lipstick on my fat lips it just looks weird. I've actually worn it a few times after the wedding, I think I'm slowly converting lol. The finish is awesome, not matte but not shimmery either. Colour is thick and creamy. Price was $44/45 (can't remember) but next time I'll buy it online bit too pricey for me.

  6. So pretty, kerker!!! And I love that shade on you!

    I have a Bobbi Brown lippie and I find that if you apply it, blot it with tissue, apply it, blot it with tissue (quite a few times), it will last for a good few hours :) xx

  14. The swatch is really dark on your skin, but it looks great on your lips. Yeah I wouldn't wear red for the wedding, that's kind of risky, I find.

  22. The color is beautiful on you! I like that you chose one with a semi-matte finish too. I think matte finishes usually photograph better.
