I tried taking photos of this but it completed washed out so I only have front face shots. I got the MAC shadow at a makeup outlet store - really pretty trio. I also YouTubed hair curling tutorial and decided to do ringlets and a side braid - I loved outcome and so did everyone else - really romantic. Normally I do big waves/curls. The hair took an hour to do though (I have so much thick, long hair) and in person you can see the individual curls. Being a girl is a lot of work - eesh.

It's the lipstick army! The full complete 20 shade Mega Last Lip Color collection.
There isn't much to say about these lipsticks as many of you may already own but just simply that they are the best. Best in value and quality. They are Semi-Matte finish, so they have the longevity of a matte lipstick without the drying effect. There's a good range of shades and all are very opaque with one or two layers.

Personal favorites: Sugar Plum, Muave Outta Here & Cherry Bomb

A quick, simple 10 minute look I did for going to the Casinos weeks ago using only the white/light brown eyeshadows in the Greed & Vanity Palettes. Rebel was my B2M item and it is a deep berry shade, a lot brighter in these photos but it is more deep and vampy. I love it! I just applied it real quickly and took shots before I blotted it down for just a stained look.

REVIEW: Eyeko Liptastik, Fat Balm + Graffiti Pen Swatches


  • Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen | Hot Lip, Lip Lover ($10 each)
  • Fat Balm (lips & cheek) | Cherry ($10)
  • Graffiti Eyeliner Pen | Jet Black ($8)
Fat Balm (lips & cheek) | Cherry


Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen | Hot Lip, Lip Lover


SWATCH
[l-r] Lipstastik Glossy Lip Pen | Hot Lip, Lip Lover Fat Balm | Cherry - Blended


I was given the opportunity to review some Eyeko Items and it was geared for traveling on-the-go items, which is perfect to have before my trip to Hawaii.

Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen
Hot Lip - Bright Pink, slight blue undertone
Lip Lover - Bright Red, orange undertone
This was a huge surprise to me, I love the texture of these and opaqueness that it delivered. They remind me of NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils but the Jumbo feels more like a creme pencils (haha, I know that's a literal way to describe them) while these feel just like lipstick and glides on more easily. The outcome has a hint of sheen to it and with my swatch it took about two quick applications. The longevity is decent, matte lipsticks or stainer last longer but these sustained well and didn't bleed. I recommend.

Fat Balm | Lips & Cheeks w/ SPF in Cheery
This is a multi-purpose product, used as a lip tint and a blush creme. The texture is of a chap lipstick and opacity of that is good after several layers (I did 2 ) and dabbed it on once then blended by finger which resulted in a sheer, red color. Pretty nice although it looks a bit too shiny for me to dab on the cheeks but definitely a good things to have in your makeup bag for emergencies.

Graffiti Pens
I did a previous review on The Purple eyeko pen in this post. I have to say, I've been using this pen everyday since I've received it - in LOVE! Eyeko definitely needs to expand this product and have more retail locations in the US.

Have you tried any of these Eyeko products - any thoughts?

SWATCH: Wet N Wild Glassy Gloss Lip Gel


Ultra-glossy, sheer gel adds high, glassy shine with a hint of color in an oh-so-lickable fruity flavor. Enriched with vitamins, nutrients, oils, and antioxidants to moisturize while keeping lips soft and supple. -WNWBEAUTY.COM

Overall Review
I am not a huge gloss person and to be honest, gloss in a tube never appealed to me because of their juvenile packaging. Again, never judge a book by their cover. I really liked the pigmentation on these glosses and they remind me of L'Oreal HIP Tube glosses (can't recall their name), although not all are entirely opaque (some are sheer) - I do like the color it gives me payoff. The only downfall I can recall is the stickiness texture, I know that can be a pet peeve to some and it can definitely create that "hair stuck on lips" syndrome. Although the stickiness is a downfall, with it creates a longer lasting product because it doesn't transfer as easily. This would probably be an ideal product to use on top of lipstick to make it sustain a bit more longer than normally would.

I can't wait until they bring out limited edition or an extended collection to different variety of shades and texture. I'd like to see a cream lilac formula among the mix, or a nude pink. My favorite out of the ones I've received is "Glass Confusion" surprisingly, it has a hint of lilac which looked nice on my skin complexion compared to the others. Also, WNW has come out with these charming names haha - my mom had a laughed at several products names...

Have any of you tried this - what are your thoughts?
