Big Lips & New Burberry Makeup

Lots of things going on today by that title, eh?

I'm super happy with the way my makeup look turned out today and I was fussing around with some new stuff (Burberry Wet/Dry Glow Eyeshadow in 002 Nude) and some old stuff (Lancome Le Lipstique Lip Liner in Bronzelle) and I'm excited about all the things! First things first - the new:


Today I am wearing one of the new members of the Burberry eyeshadow family: the Nude shade from the Wet & Dry Glow shadow formula. I got it from Nordstrom (looks like they're backordered now until March 14) and it might also available on the Burberry website - it's a wet/dry formula that I am wearing both wet and dry on the eyes today mixed with Burberry Almond in the crease and Urban Decay Tease in the outer corner. The more I play with this the better I get at its application. The rules I've learned thus far are: 

  1. Don't use a fluffy brush
  2. Synthetic bristles give smoother/overall better results 
  3. Used wet with the sponge tip applicator looks awesome!!!

As for the lips, it's a combination that just happened on a whim - I wanted to bust out my Lancome Le Lipstique lip liner in "Bronzelle" after being reminded of it by LisaLisaD1 and before I knew it - it looked like I had lip injections in the best way. This lip liner is the bee's knees and I put it on my vanity to remind myself to use it more often! I used NARS Audacious Lipstick in Jane, YSL Rouge Pur in Tea Rose (RIP) and Armani Flash Lacquer in 501 for a glossy finish.

Three cheers for mixing old and new! What makeup item did you buy most recently?
