When Broken Hearts Need Mending;

Going through break-ups can be hard, and I've found that out recently. You always hear about those "bad break-ups" and I never experienced one, until recently... The most I can say is that they hurt -a lot- but you probably didn't need me to tell you that! In my case, I had a lot of downs and one thing that seemed to cheer me up was make-up - go figure!

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
Aside from those two things I do like them. They are EXTREMELY pigmented and easy to apply! You don't necessary need a lip liner to go along with them, which is great if you're lazy like me and don't always use lip liners, but like I said it's not a necessity with these bad boys!

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!
