Fancie Faves: Lip Liners

 photo 20131231_122727.jpg

Lately I’ve been finding myself lining my lips to the gods! A good lip liner can extend the wear of your lipstick, make the color really pop and really give your lips definition. I love using lip liners to alter the color of my lipstick (or gloss) a bit but my favorite way to use them is to contour my lips. I know some ladies skip the lip liner but it’s so important to achieve a crisp, clean lip! You can either fill in your lips completely or create a nice contour by outlining your lips and then filling in the corners leaving the center bare. A great deal of my lip liners are from MAC but you can use any brand to achieve luscious lips!

After hauling Heroine and the Punk Couture lippies I’ve been in bright purples and bold vampy colors a lot! I’ve been using deeper shades to create a nice sexy contour and the bright shades to shake up the color a bit. My current faves include:

    • Fashion Boost
      bright purple cream
    • Currant
      intense reddish purple
    • Embrace Me
      vivid pinkish fuchsia
    • Magenta
      vivid pinkish purple
    • Vino
      intense violet purple
    • Nightmoth
      blackened plum

    MAC Fashion Sets Haul & Dupes

    I can’t even put in words how anxious I was to make sure I was able to get my goodies from the MAC Fashion Sets collection! I missed the online release and I was in Kentucky visiting family when it released in stores so I ended up ordering over the phone and having it shipped. Worst idea ever! LOL! It took soo long (almost a week) to get my goodies! But anyway I’m soo totally pleased with this haul! The colors in this collection are just beautiful and perfect for spring!

    March was quite an exhausting month! I had a ton going on but I still managed to fall in love with literally a TON of products! I was supposed to be on a makeup no buy (which was a slight fail lol) last month so I spent a lot time trying new skincare products and perfume as well as trying out some makeup goodies I’ve barely touched. Although my makeup no buy wasn’t a complete success I’m glad I put myself up to the challenge because I’ve discovered some gems I don’t know how I survived without! Check it out!

    La Femme Blush Swatches

    If you haven’t tried La Femme blushes yet you are seriously missing out! Especially if you’re a darker gal like me. These blushes are so pigmented that just one sweep will leave your cheeks flushed with color! Over the summer I hauled about five blush pans from Makeup Mania and I’ve been obsessed ever since! I knew I’d end up buying more soon and last week I hauled a few more. These blushes are just too good to give up!

    Makeup Mania Haul

    I ordered a few La Femme blush pans quite some time ago and totally fell in love! I knew I’d be ordering more eventually to fill up my half empty Z palette (which is an excellent investment btw!). I kept forgetting to order more until I kept seeing ladies rave about the iconic Ben Nye banana powder. I think I’m probably the last makeup junkie in the world to add this powder to my collection. Sooo many ladies love this stuff!
