This palette is so lovely. Shades are gorgeous, very soft, and so pigmented. Plus - there's a taupe! No, not the one labeled "Taupe", that one's more of a light tan. Pewter is the taupe. Gorgeous, delicious taupe.
Cherry on top is a gorgeous, shimmery, long-lasting cherry-red liquid lip color. It's absolutely to die for. I've been wearing it almost everyday for long while. I find it lasts through my meal and through my many cups of tea. This color is rich and elegant, I could not love it more.
Seems like it would be drying because it is a matte liquid lipstick, but not at all.
Available at Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS, and Walmart.
Black Lace ($9.00; available here) is my favorite liner for tightlining.
On me It's budge-proof and long-lasting. Very creamy, very black, and I find I don't need to go over my water-line more than once to really get the liner on. I also love the name! Black Lace? I'm all over it.
I definitely prefer it to MAC Smoulder, last longer and is much blacker in my experience.
