FOTD 7/3 and Mini Review

Playing around in my makeup and this is what I came up with. I called myself putting on some lashes...didn't turn out so well. Well...the left eye was great the right one not so much. I tried to use the lash applicator that came with my kit and I really didn't like it. I think I may get the lash kit from Spehora. I saw a video on youtube about and it seems like it would make application a lot easier.

Mini Review - The Max Factor gloss is one of their lip shines. Straight up I don’t like it. The concept is simple and cool; you apply the color side wait a minute and apply the gloss and get a whole new color that will last all day. I have another one, Pomegranate Fusion, which is pink and purple. I don’t really like that one either but I like it much better than the Tempting Vixen. With Tempting Vixen it was beyond hard to apply the color side. It never looked even and was kind of blotchy. It dried to a really ugly dull color and no matter how many coats of the gloss I applied it didn’t get any better. The worst part was IT WOULDN’T COME OFF!! I’m not exaggerating when I say it took 10 minutes to get it off and I’m talking about 10 minutes of scrubbing and you still have little bits on. So when they say long lasting all day color they mean it. Let me add that it left my lips really dry. The best parts of the lip shines are the glosses. Those are very pretty. Good thing I got both on clearance and with a coupon. If I paid full price I would have been hot!!
