Hello everyone, hope you are ok and all recovered from the new year festivities?
The first lipstick I have worn this year is also the only lipstick I wore in the month of December and it's called Mae Hem from Rockalily Makeup - an independent makeup company created by ReeRee Rockette, who also does a great blog featuring all things beauty and fashion related for rockabilly ladies.
I was first found out about ReeRee's blog via Twitter and then discovered she created lipstick. I really like vintage style from most era's but from the 50's I can only do the rockabilly style, the 50's cupcake baking housewife thing just isn't me. (Ever the rock chick, Esther!)
Mae Hem was a must for me for two reasons - 1) Mae is my youngest daughters middle name and I'm a soppy old thing, and 2) I love a bright orange-red lipstick. Not often I do wear lipstick but when I do it has to be this colour or shocking pink!
Mae Hem is a limited edition shade, and I think I may have to get back up of it, as when arrived it didn't leave my lips for a week - unheard of! ReeRee has described it as a creamy matte, and I would say this is correct. There is a slight sheen on first application but a quick blot and re-apply sorts it out. The creaminess means it doesn't dry the lips and I wore all day without needing to reapply. I even ate lunch and dinner without ruining it.
Hold fast people, I'm about to post a photo of myself! This lipstick deserves to be shown with my retro eyeliner and squashed quiff (thankyou arguing & crying girls!). Concentrate on the beautiful lipstick and not me looking self-conscious ( skin gone horrible again).

Another good thing about these lipsticks, as well as being super pigmented and moisturising is that they are paraben free, and you know that's a good thing in my book.
Mae Hem is yet to be available on the main website page but ReeRee had a few for pre-release to buy via a blogpost, I will try and find out if any more available - mainly for me!!
Do any of you own or have tried a Rockalily lipstick? I think I might try Pompadour Pink next.
I'll be back with another nail post very soon. xxx
