The photographer from my last photo shoot sent me this pic of the model smooching the camera…
I love it! It’s not much of a ‘makeup’ photo, unless you count the lips (NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Club Mix), but I’m still using it. It’ll go on my website (which is still being built).
I like this photo because it brings back the ‘fun’ in being an MUA. Sometimes, we just have to lighten up! It’s just makeup … if you don’t like it, wash it off and start again!
I have never seen anything like this. Wait… that’s not true. Many moons ago, some company did a ‘latex’ lip pencil… but I don’t remember much more than that.
Anyway, NARS had already done a fabulous job with the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil… now he’s decided to go all glossy:
This little sucker is AWESOME. It feels like a balm going on… but it’s pigmented like a shiny lipstick. I have noticed that the pencil tip can break if you press too hard or go too fast, but I’ve been very careful. I love this pencil!
This product comes in about 6 colors. But I only fell in love with one: CLUB MIX. It’s a purply rose color, with high shine. And you can blend it down to a sheer gloss. It’s really lovely.
This one is a keeper. It’s also worth a giveaway. Soooo…. I’ll include this lovely gloss pencil in a giveaway (or two) over the next few weeks or so. Stay tuned!
