Lipstick and some other stuff…

12 Jun

So I’ve been having some major technology issues.  I wound up giving in to my frustration and letting that all go.  I’ve been basically off the grid for a while and it has been a nice, well deserved vacation.  But now I’m equipped to get back at it.  I can’t lie and say that I haven’t enjoyed doing things at my pace as opposed to someone else’s.  That feeling of slaving away for an entity other than myself is what led me to where I am today.  Kinda poor but free from the chaos.  Now it’s only the chaos that I create that I deal with (and that’s no picnic).

So today’s musings are about this wonderful lip pencil I received today.  It is unlike anything I’ve ever used.  This is kind of embarrassing because I LOVE makeup and doing makeup is what I do for a living so not knowing about this little pencil of goodness is well…..you know.

This lip pencil is from Merle Norman and it is called the clear lip pencil.  It is pretty much a wax based pencil that is applied to stop any bleeding from lipstick.  Now I’ve been know to sport a pretty serious dark lip but I’ve always, always used a lip liner that closely matched my lip color.  This worked and looked great so why change?  Change is good.  Today I received a few products from Merle Norman that I cannot ever live without. I’ve never used this brand before so I was a bit hesitant but after carefully applying my new treasures, I am hooked.

The clear lip pencil was applied as I would normally apply my everyday lip liner.  This was followed by a BEAUTIFUL lipstick named Hussy.  It is a dark red type color that looked amazing against my new tan 🙂

Well I’ll be!!  My lipstick looked amazing and I noticed I liked the look of my lips not being overly done by using a dark lip liner to match the lip color.  It was more a natural yet sexy, bitten lip type of look.  And wouldn’t you know it?  No bleeding from the lip color.  I wore it for a full 4 hours before I needed to reapply.  I highly recommend both of these products but the clear lip pencil being top priority.

Have a great night:)
