I hope that 2017 is everything you want & make sure you get out there & slay everything you do. I have been uber behind in life rolling into the new year so I thought for the first little while, whilst I get myself sorted I’m going to have some short & sweet posts of looks I created over 2016 & their tutorials on the tube.
I adore this look because it is so blown out, grungy & smokey that you feel super bad arse wearing it & lets be fair, who doesn’t love a black lip.
Today’s post is short & sweet because I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve got a new tutorial up on my youtube channel. You should 100% go check it out & if you haven’t subscribed already do that too – I’d love, love, love to get to 50 subscribers for Christmas!
Today we’re having a look at the beautiful Kaylie’s face & this pumpkin spiced fall glam look I created. It’s beyond easy to recreate & I tried really hard to use products which you can dupe or pick up easily. To see the full tutorial head over to my youtube channel!
As promised in my Wednesday post I have created a look using the Urban Decay & Gwen Stefani lip liner I picked up off Sephora & can I say it did not disappoint. Let’s jump straight in because this is a super short & sweet post. The liner has lived up to all the expectations I had for it & if you read my post on Wednesday you would have seen that I was concerned the formula would be too soft & smudge easily – it did not. The application was smooth & precise. This liner gets an A+ from me.
If you would like to see a tutorial on how I created the rest of this look subscribe to my youtube channel here to be notified when it goes up on Tuesday!
Bye for now, I will chat to you all in my next post on Wednesday!
As I am sure you can tell from the title this little post it is a first impressions on the Urban Decay | Gwen Stefani Lip Liner, I picked up the shade Rock Steady from Sephora online (Canada) last week for the amazing discounted price of $16.00! This is going to be a two part post as I will be running through what I first thought of the liner in this post & at the end of the week I will be creating a make-up look with this liner as the feature.
I would also like to show you all a glimpse of where I am living & working for the next 5 months, the water front you can see in the back of the photos in this post is the docks at the lake front on the camp I am working at. Taking photos on the water front in the full sun was spectacular!
Alright, time to get into the details:
Firstly, the packaging is gorgeous. It is so important for a brand to immediately, before you have even seen or tested the product draw the buyer in with the packaging. This Urban Decay liner does exactly that. The white & gold diagonal stripes are fun yet classic and exert a feeling of lavishness. Additionally, the coloured strip which runs down the end and back half of the packaging provides you with the name & visual representation of the colour of the liner (photo no.2).
Secondly, the actual casing of the liner is sleek, smooth & evenly balanced. I like the contrast in colour to the packaging, with the diagonal gold stripes being contrasted against black instead of white & the end of the pencil is the same red colour as the liner.
Thirdly, the colour is special, blood red & perfect for a statement ‘don’t f**k with me’ look. The pencil is also very creamy, which can be both a good & bad thing as you need to ensure precise application with the correct amount of pressure as you do not want to be smudging the line of your lip.
Once I have completed a look using this liner I will be back with part two of the post & fill you in on the longevity, comfort & colour pay off on the lips.
All in all I am very excited about this liner & think it will become a go to in my make-up bag. Let me know, have any of you got this liner or others from the Gwen Stefani collection? What do you think of them?
