I went into Sephora and did a little retail therapy. One of the items I picked up was Make Up Forever Aqua Brow.
I've never been one to venture out into any product like this before, I just simply fill in my brows with a little eye shadow, and viola- done. I can honestly say that this product was in fact life changing! It's a gel like consistency that is WATER-PROOF! Now I'm one of those people who forgets they have anything on their brows, or face for that matter, and I tend to touch or scratch my eyebrows, and this product does NOT budge! I also have dry patches around my eyebrow area and this product does not seem to irritate my skin; bonus!
You only need a little bit of this product, and I mean only a pea sized amount if that, and it goes a long way.
What I really like about this product is the fact that it looks n a t u r a l.
The second item I picked up was a liquid lipstick. Now I don't know about you, but a nice BOLD lipstick can instantly change my mood! Feeling sick, throw on little lipstick. Feeling down, lipstick equals an instant pick me up. Well, you get the point.
Picking a lipstick can be daunting with all the different shades, textures, finishes, and not to mention if its bold the constant maintenance. For my taste I frequently go for matte finishes because of their longevity, so I opted for Kat Von D's Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in the shade A-Go-Go, which is a beautiful orange!
I do own a few other shades from this line, and to be honest the formula is not my favorite and here's why:
- They are drying, but that's expected from a matte lipstick
- I only get a few hours of wear before I have to completely take it off and reapply because my lips start to look too dry
Overall, I was very satisfied with these two purchases and I would highly recommend them to any of you who are looking to try a little something new!
Sending all my love to all my make up connoisseurs out there!
