Hello, beauties! Today’s makeup or “face of the day” might seem familiar if you saw my Summer Trends article on Popsugar. It’s the same look I’m wearing there minus the floral headband. I went for simple matte brown colors on the eyes (MAC Mystery and Charcoal Brown). The focus are the strong brows and bold lips. I used MAC Mystery eyeshadow for filling in my brows. I usually use a lighter color to fill them in but when I want them to stand out Mystery is my go-to color.
The lips consist of just lip liner. Specifically the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Pencil in Coral (what a name!) This thing seriously stays in place for hours. It doesn’t even transfer during meals. The drawback is that it’s so so dry. And I don’t mean that it makes your lips chapped. The pencil is just so dry and stiff that you have to apply mighty pressure to get color payoff. It’s a serious struggle to apply. I thought of returning it but I just love the color too much. It looks red in photos but is a bit more orange in person. I also love the retro matte finish so it’s a love-hate relationship with this thing.
Have you ever experienced that with a product? Loving how it looks on you but hating all the hassle it requires?
