Add some Colour + Beat the Cold!

I know I don't look particularly colourful, compared to most, but by comparison to how I've been feeling, this look is like wearing a rainbow! 
For those of you that haven't read my self-pity on twitter, I'm a wee bit poorly at the moment - sigh... I have Hypoglycemia, which basically means I have low blood sugar - which is pretty obvious because I can't have glucose - so urgh... But I wasn't letting this beat me - I got my arse in gear and added my new favourite Lippy...

And yes, I'm in a onesie - but that's ok, I am ill....
FACE:
Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer, No7 Essentially Natural Foundation,  Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer, Topshop Cheek Duo in Up In The Air By Louise Gray, Estée Lauder Chic To Cheek Tone Correcting Powder.

EYES: 
MUA Eye Primer, Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, L'Oréal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim,  Max Factor Clump Defy Volumising Mascara, MUA White Kohl Liner (for waterline)

BROWS:
MUA Brow Kit, Maybelline Master Shape Brow.

LIPS: 
Balmi Coconut Lip Balm, SEVENTEEN Lip Liner, Max Factor Lasting Colour in Raisin. 

I know - Attractive right? (Errrm, maybe not??) Well despite my "best" pose, I wanted to show how good this lippy really looks on... It's definitely my favourite of the moment and my mum always said, "Adding a bit of colour to yourself, can make you feel the world better" - and you know what? It did! 
I went for my Urban Decay on the eyes to keep it natural, plus if it's too heavy on the shaddow when I'm ill, I look like something off the Walking Dead... But on the contrary with the eyeliner, without it while I'm ill my eyes will either resemble pin-pricks or Puss In Boots (You know when he has his MASSIVE eyes) - and those mixed with walking dead is NEVER good look - so I glammed up and looking a bit prettier, actually made me feel better!

I love this new lippy is Max Factor Lasting Colour in Raisin, despite the unattractive name is very plumping and such a nice natural, but bright lippy, that is so versatile, as it transfers nicely from day to night - which is highly handy when you have a pretty hectic life like mine... I decided on a lippy FOTD as I seem to have invested in about £25 worth of them at the moment! Ooopsie, I know....

This is such a lovely flattering colours - even for us poorly palies - it's really moisturising on the lips which is great for brightening up the poorly days when the cold gets to your face and your lips get dry. Most Lippy's will cling to dry lips where as this actually smooths over nicely!

So I've brightened up my poorly days, so it can only look up from here!
What do you think of my poorly-but-bot-so-poorly FOTD? 
Are you loving any Lippy's at the moment?
