NEW IN #1

Hello!

After "Red On Red" post, today I'm going to share with you what I received or bought through out first week of July. Even though I wouldn't say I'm a big shopping person, sometimes a short trip to drugstore is very good idea.

First thing I bought was Estee Lauder Pleasues perfume. I had this scent on my mind for a quite a while, so one day I decided to give myself a little treat.

Price:€ 83.00
Where to buy? dm (dugstore)

Next thing I decided to purchase was this little mono, bronze, shimmery eyeshadow. I fell in love with it and decided to treat myself once again.

Shade: 03
Price: € 2.66
Where to buy? Bipa (drugstore)


3.Catrice Cosmetics Counturing Palette

This might sound weird but I've never owned any counturing palettes.As with everything when you're about to buy something for the first time you visit good old drugstore.That is the story behind this purchuse.

Pice: € 4.25

4.Deborah gel effect nailpolish

Even though I do not have very presentable nails I decided to encourage myself with a little, pretty nailpolish to start growing them back. Hopefully this time it will work.

Red on Red (liquid lipstick as eyeliner)

Hello!

It's always hard to know which sentence would be appropriate to kick  this first post off, but for now a simple hello will work, I guess! Today we are going to talk about something I had on my mind for quite a while. I saw few tutorials on ever so popular platform called youtube about applying your liquid lipstick as eyeliner. It's always like this when I see tutorials floating around, all material needed is in my hands by seconds and I'm trying it out. Same with this one,I grabbed my favourite liquid lipstick with eyeliner brush and started working on my wings.

At first it was quite hard to make a straight line at the end of my wing. The consistency of lipstick isn't quite right when it comes to thin, straight lines, I guess. Even though it was quite challenging at first, as I progressed things started to look better. The hardest part, at least I find it to be,  is appling lipstick at the inner corner of your eye. Line there needs to be quite thin and smooth,while lipstick formula isn't really smooth.

Comparison with eyeliner:

First of all, liquid lipstick formula is completely, but completely different than eyeliner. As close as I could describe it is a mix between gel and liquid eyeliner, As I said, the hardest part to do with lipstick was inner corner of the eye, which I find tricky when working with gel liners too.
I wore it on my eyes for a whole day and it faded out a bit, but not a lot, as some liquid eyeliners do. Even though this was liquid lipstick  surprisingly, wasn't that hard to remove. Lipstick on my lips gave me harder time while removing it than one on my eyes.

Rating 4/5

Why?
It's a lot harder to put on and to remove. Since it was made for your lips I do not know if it's that safe for your eyes. After everything said,I have to admit it's a good substitute if you've run out of your eyeliner ,but just for a day.
