A Blue Experiment

I had wanted to wear a blue look on Sunday but all the blues I had were more of the going out and shaking your tail feather variety. This is not quite the look I wanted since I was going to church so I decided to visit CVS and see if I could find something subtle. Since there is always some type of sale going on I found a L’Oreal Infinite Eye Shadow Quad in blues (not quite sure of the actual name). I like it, it was the softness I was looking for. Plus one quad will give you a couple of looks which I love. Here’s what I came up with. This was at the end of the day so I already had my face done.

Eyes: L’Oreal Infinite Eye Shadow Quad in blue; NIK eyeshadow pencil in White; HIP creme line in Blue; NYX Liner in Black

I also wanted to try the Max Factor MaxWear lip color I got in Pomegranate Fusion. I tend to wear just the purple side so I wanted to see what both looked like together since that is how you’re supposed to wear it. The result to me was mixed. I love the color but I thought some parts were too clumpy and thick. Overall I like it but I need to work on the base application. They suggest waiting 1 minute to let the base dry before rubbing your lips together and applying the gloss. I found that after the minute it was to dry to do anything. The gloss did make it better and you could kind fill in where needed. I’ll probably go get some more since the colors are so pretty.

blue experiment done well! this looks like a naughty nautical look for you!

i tried the max factor glosses once because like you .. i thought they were so pretty. then i tried it.. yuck! but.. that was before i understood the concept. i haven't tried them since i was put on to the concept. i'm still not super comfortable with those long lasting lipcolors and gloss, but i'll be interested in seeing them on you.

That's one of the main reasons why I haven't worn the combo and stick to the gloss. I can't stand dry lips! The longest I've ever worn it is for an hour so no issues. We'll see what happens when I go a full day.

Absolutely beautiful! I don't know why my sisters of a darker hue don't think they can wear blues. This looks gorgeous on you!
