PicMonkey Collage78912348753

A few months ago I was coerced (not really but I have to explain my bank statement somehow…)  by various YouTubers I watch namely Jaclyn Hill, Tati / GlamLifeGuru, and Danna Ann to buy some Makeup Geek eye-shadows.  And…. I’m Obsessed!!! They are sooo good, I just can’t get enough!  I will be doing a review in the coming week so stay tuned.  But as a teaser I’ve created this eye look for you.

The rest of my face..  Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation in Ivory mixed with Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Classic Ivory 2 applied with a damp Beauty Blender.  Dusted face with Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent 001 with Sigma F30. Used Tarte Hotel Heiress (this seems to be discontinued as I can’t find it! 😦 ) as bronzer and light contour; applied with Sigma F35  and blended out with e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush.  Used e.l.f Studio Blush Brush to apply Coastal Scents Forever Blush in Elegant.  On the lips is Avon Extra Lasting Lipstick in Forever Red (which is really pink… Review on that upcoming)

Lara Says:: High Definition color? Yes.  Keep lips from feeling dry for 24 hours? No.  This lipstick goes on smoothly and has a velvety texture.  However, with the name Extra Lasting you would think it would oh I don’t know… be a long wearing lipstick?  Not so much, after wearing for 45 minutes-1 hour I drank my first cup of coffee and it left stains on the rim of my cup.  Within 3 hours it was fading and within 4 it was gone and my lips did not feel moisturized.  Now they were not dry but I didn’t think they were soft either.   And why on earth is a lipstick named Forever Red and is clearly a Pink?  Forever Red says to me, “Hello, I’m a lovely shade of Red…” a more apt name would be ‘Pink Rose’.  Looking online I will say the color does look more pink but I ordered from the catalog and it looked like a red to me.  Anywho, bottom line; this is a lipstick that when applied gives your lips a dose of full color moisture but the moisture is not locked down and nether is the color.  If you are cool with touchups throughout the day this maybe a an option for you.
