Y'all know how I feel about the glosses, eyeliner, lipliner, and brushes, but I haven't gone over the cuticle pen or the toe separators yet. I'm love love loving the cuticle pen! It's my first time using one and it's amazing! I have the driest cuticles and they look especially icky now that the weather's gotten colder. One go-around with ELF's Essential Cuticle Pen and they've been neat and tidy for hours! I cannot believe that it was only $1!
Oh, and this is the second set of Essential Toe Seperators I've gotten. I thought I lost my first pair, but my husband found them in the couch the day after I bought them again. Lol. Anywho, they're the most comfortable toe separators I've ever had. I bought the Daiso ones and those almost hurt. I think I'll stick to these. Again, just one buck!
Anyways, I was super-excited to get my Studio Lip Liner and Blending Brush in Red and Essential Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Ruby Slipper since I'm thinking about going with a red lip for a wedding I'm attending this weekend. I know I'm wearing sweatpants from being in school all day, but I don't care. I just ripped open the packages and gave it a whirl:
Sorry, these photos aren't really representative of the true colors of the lip products. I was not in my own bathroom and the lighting was totally weird. Both the lip pencil and the lipstick were a very deep, earthy shade of red, a pleasant surprise because I was expecting something loud and bright. But really, they're a very subdued red. The liner creates a really nice base and the liquid lipstick is a similar shade, just translucent. The combination created a glossy, yet understated red lip. My only gripe is that the liquid lipstick did wear off a little quickly, but I don't really mind reapplying. If I end up going with these lips, you'll see it in a style post after the event!
I'll try to post another one of the lip colors tomorrow before taking off. But for now, back to packing. Grrrrr! I hate packing! :P Oh well, toodles for tonight!
