Blue Lips + Lashes

Makeup artists, gurus and cosmetics enthusiasts on Instagram have been buzzing about liquid lipsticks (and matte lips in general) a whole lot lately. For quite some time, the hottest selling shade seemed to be taupe (like Lime Crime's Cashmere).

I wasn't really taken in by this trend until I saw several companies come out with bold, vibrant and beautiful shades of blue as part of their liquid lipstick lines (Jeffree Star Cosmetics has some of the coolest shades I've seen). As someone who has always been drawn to blue, I decided to try it myself.

I went with MAC's chromagraphic pencil in Hi-Def Cyan (a product I already owned) to achieve the look. I've talked about this pencil in my latest monthly favorites post and, once again, feel the need to mention how absolutely amazing the color payoff is. I wish all of my pencils were this opaque & applied as smoothly. The color itself is absolutely stunning & I can't wait to add more chromagraphic pencils to my makeup collection.

Now, I'm sure most people who buy blue liquid lipsticks end up trying them on, posting photos to IG and tucking them into their makeup drawers (I dunno about you, but I haven't seen very many women rocking these colors in public!)...that's why I totally recommend giving this pencil a try instead. It can always be used as an eyeliner, so you get the most bang for your buck.

I'm also wearing a pair of JoJo lashes by Oh My, Lash - get 'em here!
