Lancome Artliners = My new love!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've been packing and getting ready to move back home (Arizona). Once we get back I'll be posting a lot more since I have a lot of new products to review.

I know I posted about the Lancome Artliners in a previous post but I got a new color (Action) and I am still in love so I thought I would post about how much I love them. First of all, they do not budge AT ALL which is pretty hard to find in a eyeliner, I tried Make Up Forever's black waterproof eyeliner and it ended up all over my eye, it was horrible. Secondly, I love how easy it is to apply it, I know everyone says it gets easy to apply liquid eyeliner after a lot of practice but I have been using it for 3 years now and it is still a pain to put on. But with the Lancome Artliners the tip of the applicator is flexible and its so easy to just "draw" on your eyeliner, its like using a felt tip marker.

From Top to Bottom:
Action, Prune, Star-Studded

I'm wearing Prune on the top and Action on the bottom lash.

Embracing my lip color

Here is my lipstick collection, I recently had a big sale on LJ and sold a lot of them but I took this before I sent them out, I'm trying to go for more color now and less nude since it just doesn't work for me.

I have gotten so sick of having to put myth under every single lipstick and gloss I put on. I have pretty pigmented lips and whenever I put on any kind of color it turns out to be darker and redder because of my natural lip color. Well I finally decided to stop fighting it and to start embracing my natural lip color. I have found that if I want a certain lip color I need to go a shade or two lighter to achieve the perfect color. One of my new favorites is Mac's Dazzleglass in Love Alert, its sheer enough that it doesn't make me look like a clown but has enough color to enhance my natural color. I also like Hollywood Nights but it is more of a dramatic night time lip.

Anyone know of any other good lip products for pigmented lips, I'm loving the dark pinks/corals right now:)
