Me with the Stila!

 

I hate wand-type applicators. I think there was waaaay too much on when I first applied -- like I think I accidentally gave myself "circle lips". I think I'll have to try KawaiiMeow's technique. On the overall I don't think it's drying and it looks smooth on my lips. I think i was totally dry and set after 5 minutes of application. My main problem is that I feel like it fades around the edges so that's kinda awkward. I honestly can't imagine what this formula would look like in another color. Overall, I do like it. It's like a nicer version of Wet N Wild's liquid lipstick!

 

That is positively stunning on you! LOVE IT! patches.gif

Thanks friends! wavey.gif

 

I wore it all day, it faded after meals of course but nothing too dramatic. it definitely did not smear! I do like liquid lipsticks and this by far is the best. I don't think I'm going to purchase a full size (I dont think I've ever used up any sort of lippie) and I don't think I'm going to purchase it in any other color -- it is nice though and I will recommend it to people!

2) HOLY S#!T that is red wow. I'm all for dramatic looks and I love rocking the reds but my eyes are definitely popping out of my head. I will definitely take KawaiiMeows up on her technique!

You look gorgeous with the stila! Am I the only one obsessed with the liquid lipsticks? I bought two more and a box of nyx ones.

I just got my birchbox and the eyeko liner is full size!!!!  That's $16! I thought it would be travel size. I really like it. I might buy one in black.

I love my eyeko liners! If you're looking for black it might worth it to hunt the trade lists :)

Which color did you receive?  I received Navy Blue.  I've never tried any blue eye products before and I'm really liking the Navy.

I need to try this method. This color is a bit too BAM! for me though.

I agree, this does look pretty on you!

I'm so tempted to buy a black one. I already used the blue and I'm loving it!

I got the same color. It's pretty. I applied Urban Decay's liquid liner in Retrograde (glittery purple) over it and it looks amazing! It really makes the UD purple pop.

I think someone asked a few pages back whether the Mermaid Sea Salt Spray was any good and I can verify now after a lot of trial and... trial.

 

NO

 

It's really bad. It hasn't given me any waves or helped keep in waves I made with braids. It hasn't helped reduced fuzz.  It's done NOTHING. Well I guess it smells good.

 

Save your money. I thought it was possibly because my hair was too dense/heavy but lots of reviewers report the same thing.

Thanks for this!  I had been wanting to buy some (but it is/was sold out in the BB store) so now I know to steer clear!
