Hey guys hope you are all well.. it's been wet and miserable in New York. I spent the day chilling with Yinka at her place with the cats. I felt so sad being around cats made me think about going home to a house without one *Sighs*. We went for breakfast at around 4pm and then chilled. I then went and met one of my blog followers who's become a friend here in the city and we went for a shisha. I have just got in and have a minute before going out tonight so thought I would quickly do a post on the bits that I had purchased in Sephora.
Stila All Day Liquid Eyeliner
I have been using the Stila all day liquid eyeliner now for a few days and have mixed feelings on it. I actually really love the pen, especially the nib which allows you to create a really precise line, I always end up messing it up and end up with my typical thick winged liner.
[Excuse the mess I am currently having a HATE/HATE relationship with mascara!]
The colour is also pretty good I am all about intense black liner and this one doesn't fail in this department. The staying power is pretty impressive and it really does last all day and night as a matter of fact. However the only thing I am unsure about is the finish, to me it ends up looking a bit waxy and wet if you get what I meant. You have to work quite quickly or it dries and then creates that cracky crumble effect. One thing I love about Sephora is that you can try things and if you don't like them you can return them. I think I will give this another go then decide wether or not to keep it. I think I will because it's the first pen liner I have liked using in quite a while and for $20 it's really not bad.
Sephora Creamy Lip Stain 01 Always Red
This Sephora lip stain has become my best friend. I have been wearing this constantly for the last few days. I love it! The colour is amazing it is such a gorgeous red, with a beautiful velvet finish and when I say this baby does not budge I mean it.
I actually wore it on Sunday night I ate with it, I drank with it, I smoked with it, I literally spent the whole night dancing away and it got to 5 am and my lip was still in place. I can not tell you how much I rate this and one thing I love is that it doesn't dry out my lips. It goes on to the lips almost as a lip gloss, it's creamy in texture and within a few seconds it mattifies leaving solid colour. Yinka bought this in a gorgeous nude colour that I am definitely going back to buy tomorrow I tried it on today and it was beautiful. These are only $12 if you are near a Sephora you need these lip stains in your life.
Hope you are all well.. It's my last week in the states! Time has flown but I also feel like I have been here forever. I am missing home a little, my friends, my family, my room, all my make up and most importantly I am so tired of living out of a suitcase! It has been amazing and so much fun but need to get back to reality sooner or later.
How are you all?!
Lots of Love..
