What do you guys think of lip liner? I used to think it was a trivial and unnecessary step in makeup application – I mean, what’s the point of wearing it if you’re just going to put lip gloss or lipstick over it? Boy, was I proved wrong. While I was at CVS yesterday buying a new eyebrow pencil, I came across the NYC Automatic Lip Liner in Naughty Nude. Because it was so cheap, I didn’t see any harm in purchasing it.
As you can see from the photos above, applying lip liner really defines the shape of your lips and gives the illusion of a fuller pout. What I usually have trouble giving definition to is my cupid’s bow, but using lip liner really made the dip stand out. ; ) And from what I experienced yesterday, it literally makes your lipstick LAST ALL DAY. I only had to apply once, and there was minimal fading or feathering of color – even after I ate! Overall, I’m impressed, but still feel that applying lip liner isn’t something I would do on a daily basis during my makeup routine. For special occasions like parties, business-casual meetings, concerts, or similar events, though, I would definitely put in the extra time. : )
In other news, I have two outfits from this week that want to share with you guys – because this is a fashion/style blog, after all. And what kind of example would I be setting if I didn’t dress the part? :P Nothing fancy, though. These are just examples of what I wear to class when I’m in a good mood.
Also, I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it on here – but the reason I haven’t been buying or posting about my clothes lately (if at all) is because I don’t want to add anything to my wardrobe until I reach my goal weight (110 lbs) or at least somewhere close to it. As of right now, I’m only 10 lbs away.. so wish me luck and perseverance! But I doubt I’ll reach it anytime soon, especially since I went to Five Guys with my boyfriend today. <.<;
Until next time!
