The Lip balm: I personally liked the color but did not think it went well with the colors given to me. The balm did not last as long as most lipsticks so if I was to buy one I would definitely buy a different color because I think the staying power would be longer. It does go on semi-matte so that is why I think it would last longer in a darker color for me.
The Lippy: I won Queen Vic in a giveaway and I love it. It is a darker color and it tastes wonderful. This Lippy is very light and was gone for me in half an hour and it doesn’t have that wonderful buttery taste. I definitely like the old formula’s staying power and taste much better than this one.
The Eyeliners: These eyeliners are so pigmented I love them. The only thing is that they are water-proof which is fine if you don’t make a mistake putting it on or want to smudge but I came up with a way to make it a little better but that will come in the next post where I will actually show you two looks I came up with Yikes. (I am not photogenic). One way to smudge the eyeliner is using the eye shadow to moisturize it a little but it does take away the color. In the looks that I created I tried to use only the products sent to me. So, I do want to say the eyeliners are workable.
The next is the Eye shadow. I rarely use crème eye shadow but what I did find was that it did have staying power. It felt like a mousse. I spread it on with my finger. I did use a Urban Decay’s eye shadow primer which is one of the best but the eye shadow is nice.
The crème blush. I haven’t used crème blush in over ten years but I do like them. This one spread really easily and it just gave a nice glow.
The mascaras. Ok, I was going to use false eye lashes because I have pretty short lashes but no need to. These are probably the best mascaras I have ever used and I have used them all. Lancôme, Dior, MAC, Clinique and tons of drug star brands but these are great! If you get anything from this line get one of the mascaras. They retail for $20.00 which is in a good price range. I went wild over the pink. I have tried colored mascaras and have to use a primer just to get a little color. Not with these they are so pigmented two coats and you are good to go. I did already go and buy the blue but I really want the purple. I wasn’t sure I would like the pink but I love it. So, this is the last week that Ulta is having a sale. Buy $25.00 of butter London and you get a free bottle of Chaucer. This is where I bought the blue but honestly I am dying for the purple. I think this will be my staple mascara from now on.
Ok, so this is so out of my comfort zone it isn’t even funny. Here is my soft Pastel Look.
Pistol Pink with Union Jack Semi Moons.
I have a third post where I did do a smokey look so that will be the final post.
