FOTD - Berry Nice

Another FOTD to share with you all today....I went to a 50th anniversary reception this afternoon for some long-time friends of the family and decided to keep it classic and simple with a little punch of color on the lips...

Boots Expert Shine Control Lotion (review on this soon!!!!!!)
Avon Magix Primer
Revlon Colorstay Active (buff)
MUFE Full Cover (#4 flesh)
Sally Hansen/Carmindy All Over Brightener (under eyes only)
Benefit Erase Paste (#1 - under eyes only)
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder (#1 light)

Wet n Wild Cream Shadow in Cafe Au Lait (as base)
Benefit Fawn Over Me (all over lid)
Mark Wink Wink (very slightly in crease)
Mark Whisper (highlight)
Sonia Kashuk Gel Liner in Black
Sonia Kashuk Eyue Definer in Plummy Bronze (lower lashline)
Wet n Wild brow pencil in Mink Brown
Maybelline Full 'n' Soft mascara

L'Oreal Color Juice Stick in Berry Spritzer

Mark Camero Glo

I decided to go simple on the eyes because #1- it was running late, #2, I was wearing a "bolder" lip (well, for me anyways), and I didn't want to "overdo" it. Anyways, I am very very VERY pleased with the Sonia Kashuk liner. It's very easy to work with, as you can see, I had very little trouble or mess getting the line I wanted. I don't like very harsh lines, so I always smudge my liner. I just very lightly smudged it here, just enough so that it still looks clean. And I know you can hardly see it (that's the intention), but I used the SK Plummy Bronze pencil just to give a teeny bit of color on my lower lashline, I hate going completely naked without lower liner.

I admit, I usually don't wander away from light pinks and such for my lip color, but I decided to throw on something a little more "bold" (For my standards anyway, haha. Seriously, the boldest color I wear is red and that's ONLY on Halloween!). I have a couple of other Color Juice Sticks and they are seriously amazing. This color is nothing short, it feels more like a lipgloss on my lips and leaves more of a beautiful berry tint, rather than a "lipstick-y" look. And the sparkle is so pretty! Not gritty at all. I had been on the hunt for a color exactly this after seeing a lipstick, same color/finish/tube design and everything, on a Japanese website. Of course it was a brand exclusive to those lands, and was so sure I wasn't going to find anything like it. That was of course, until, I picked this up during a sale and I'm convincing myself that it's the same exact shade (I'll try to dig up the photo of the mystery lipstick and compare it to this one, if anyone is interested).

I think I've rambled too much...and I think I'll have to wear these "bolder" colors more often, methinks...
