Been very busy this past week and i am happy that i am one year older! Say hello to wrinkles!lol..
Okay, so i just wanted to share some new products that i picked it up last week (except Milani lipstick in black cherry, i got this lipstick with other color like weeks ago..). I have a small review of Milani lipstick in Fruit punch, if you want to check that pretty color. The new products that i picked on my birthday trip : NARS light reflecting finishing powder ( pressed) and Ardell eyelashes in #81 Black.
I created dark lip color with a natural smokey eyes using Maybelline color tattoo 24hr wear cream eyeshadow in Bold gold and some colors from M.A.C eyeshadow Parlor smoke quad.
Speaking of M.A.C, have you checked out Rihanna's collaboration with M.A.C recently? If not, kindly check the M.A.C website to figure it out. I love Riri Woo color, it is like a ruby red color, i think it is beautiful! no wonder, it has been sold out like crazy.Red lips are back for this season... excited!

How to :
For the lips :
As for me, i love the color complexion of this lipstick. A dark burgundy almost as dark as a real black cherry fruit ( picture below) . Thing is the application is a little bit hard to work with, you need a couple time of the applications to make it even, on my lips, it attempts to settle between the fine lines on my lips. Lip balm and lip liner are recommended to get the good result. It doesnt make the lips dry but the color will fade after couple of hours. That's why i always go for lip stain or lipstick with long-lasting formula such as L'oreal Infallible when it comes a red/dark lipstick. But with a good deal on price for this Milani lipstick, i would say it is worth to try.

NARS Light reflecting finishing powder :
It reminds me of Make Up For Ever HD microfinish setting powder (picture below), but this NARS comes in pressed powder type. I love how it comes with a small black pouch to carry this powder box and also a small white sponge. Like it claimed as a setting powder that reflects the light, this powder really works pretty good. It blurs the pores and fine lines, it creates a veil on the face to make the skin glows and look so smooth. I am impressed by what it claims that the powder contains a glycerin and anti-oxidant! Even though on the product it looks so shimmery, but actually it creates a semi- matte finish on the face. Not a flat matte, but it creates a healthy glow looking, instead. So far, i think i LOVE it!
