The Lipstick League – Week of 2/24/2014


The Lipstick League – week of 2.24.14

Question of the Week: What’s your current favorite cream eyeshadow?

EauMG’s Answer: My favorite is Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Gel Eyseshadow. This stuff holds up in the Seattle mist /rain without budging. And it lasts from morning bus stop to evening bus stop. I really wish they’d expand the line with less shimmery colors but there are a few that work for me. I wear Tough as Taupe by itself on the lids. Pair with black liner and a pale pink lipstick. Bam. Done. Four minute makeup look. I use Audacious Asphalt (gunmetal shimmer) when I do a smoky eye. I apply a dark eyeshadow over it (does exceptionally well with grays, emeralds, dark chocolate and burgundy) . Bold Gold (gilded gold) looks better on me when I layer it with powder shadow. It is sort of ugly by itself (with my complexion). My go-to right now is using this with a pink like MAC Sushi Flower over it. This creates a perfect “rose gold” that looks great with blue eyes.
