Most of you know I love Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks. She recently came out with a Lolita Lip Duo. It includes a mini Lolita and a new shade Lolita II. You know I had to get my hands on this. Unfortunately it’s sold out online, but I would check in stores to see when it comes out. I believe the full size Lolita 2 should be out Dec/Jan.
The formula of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are better than ever! They are easier to apply and they are build-able. There aren’t very many liquid lipsticks out there that you can add layer after layer. They usually get all clumpy and flakey. I think I applied about 4 to 5 layers.
The OG Lolita is a brown pink nude shade and Lolita II is a peachy pink nude. I think Double Dare is pretty similar but it’s more pink. I really love Lolita II, it’s a great nude and I think it’ll look great on all skin types. I definitely recommend purchasing this duo, especially if you don’t already own Lolita. I did not wear a liner with it.
I will soon be doing a post to show you all what products and techniques I use for my flawless foundation routine.
Today’s shade of the day features MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Nightingale. I mentioned this guy in my MAC Haul post. I figured it would be a good idea to give you a lip swatch. I love wearing MAC Lip Pencils as lipsticks. They are super matte and last all day. They are kind of dry so if you don’t like really dry matte lipsticks, you could always apply a lip balm over it. They can be a little tough to apply but I don’t mind it.

This color is a beautiful berry color. I’m pretty sure it’s similar to Rebel, which is one of MAC’s most popular shades. I’d definitely recommend this shade for the fall!
I did my eye makeup a little different and I love it. Instead of using my typical liquid liner, I decided to use eyeshadow. I wish I would have used a different bronzer… I guess it’s time to put away my shimmery bronzers and bring out my matte ones.

Today’s shade of the day features one of the new Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipsticks. Santa Sangre is described as a “poison apple.” It’s a beautiful bright red! This one is a must have. You can never have enough red lipsticks. And the formula in this is better than ever. It’s not drying and feels very comfortable.
A lip liner isn’t really necessary but I lightly lined my lips with MAC’s Lip Pencil in Magenta. NARS Audacious lipstick in Angela is a lot lighter. I’d say MAC Heroine is similar as well but I don’t own it.
Ok so maybe I am over deep reds and plums. I am sooooooooo ready for spring! The weather here in Seattle has been beautiful lately so I decided to try out the Sephora Cream Lip Stain I mentioned in this post. This one is in the shade 12 African Violet. This color is so gorgeous, it screams spring and summer. It’s a beautiful pink violet.
Sephora reformulated and came out with new shades not long ago. I have a couple of the old formula and I wasn’t really impressed. I felt they transferred a lot and became quite clumpy after a while. I was a little nervous how this one was going to wear but I ended up being SUPER impressed. I had it on my lips for about 7 to 8 hours and it was perfect! These are a little more moisturizing than the older formula and they do not clump AT ALL! I ate twice and the color held up very well. It did transfer a little but nothing too serious. I went to Sephora and they finally had Marvelous Mauve in stock so I purchased it. I would recommend a lip liner to prevent any feathering. I wore Make Up For Ever’s Lip Liner Perfector. It’s a colorless lip liner so it’s perfect for any lipstick!
These lipsticks are a must have. So go get chu some!
