If you have read a few of the makeup posts on this blog, you’ve probably noticed that we believe makeup for cosplay is very important and that we invest a bit of time and money in it. Truth is, I’m not the best one at makeup (it’s a work in progress) and for my Snow White cosplay I decided to go to my local MAC Cosmetics store to have one of the makeup artists there create a look for me. As long as you purchase $50 worth of products during your visit this service is free. If your budget allows it, I suggest you give it a try!
Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel. My quest for a lipstick that works with my sensitive lips is over!! (Probably. For now.)
Lip-Ink is a 3 steps system. I ordered the trial kit in Hot Pink, which is quite generous with the lipstick but not so much with the moisturizer and primer/cleaner.
I’m always on the lookout for a lipstick that will work with my sensitive lips and when I saw Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Love Lipstick in very hot pink at Sephora, I just had to give it a try.
Despite its name Liquid Love Lipstick is more of a cross between a lipgloss and a lip stain than a lipstick. It applies like a lipgloss, dries like a matte lipstick and once it’s on, it stays on like a lipstain.
