If it is one thing that’ll make me feel just a tad bit insecure, it’s bare lips. This dawned on me yesterday while i was in Georgetown inhaling a really REALLY good burger which virtually wiped off all my lipstick. When I realized that I didn’t have any type of lip product on me to save my life, not even Chapstick, my dear old friend and I made a trip to Sephora which was just a few blocks away. Perfect excuse to buy makeup that you don’t need, right?
The color I purchased was Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Color Lipstick in the shade Pearly Violet (15). The lipstick retails for $20 and is an amazing color if I may say so myself. I paired the shade with Clinique’s Quickliner for Eyes in Intense Ebony (yes I used a black eyeliner as a lip pencil) and I also applied just a tad bit on a shimmery pink Sephora brand gloss in the center of my bottom lip.
PROS -Great Color that seems to last pretty long. – It has a pleasant light smell -Though it is a shimmery lipstick, it feels really comfortable on the lips.
CONS – It’s sort of hard to apply. You definitely need to use some elbow grease to get a really good application This was my first purchase from Make Up For Ever, but when the time comes for my unnecessary spending, they’ll be getting a visit from me.
