  1. Woo, this combo is so cool! (I do have a stila smudge pot that looks very much like the lancome one… but I think this kind of makeup will smudge within 10 minutes on me…I hope there is some sticky black eye gloss out there…)

  2. The Indigo Artliner is great, right? But I just bought another brand of gel liner, so I’ll get it later~ You should consider getting the La Rose Liberté too^^

  3. Citrine,

    The glossy effect you see on the lid is done with the Lancome Fever Gloss which is actually a black lip gloss from the Pink Irreverence collection this spring.

    And yes you are right, this kind of makeup is not meant to be worn out. It is only good for pictures.

  4. Boots,

    I know I know *lol* I have finally started looking into getting a tripod and better camera for videos. Those of you who have experience on youtube please hit me up – I need tips!!

  5. Yes AtelierGal. This is my first time trying the Lancome Ink Artliner and I am impressed with how easy it glides on and how long-lasting it is! I will definitely check out the other color you mentioned!

  6. Thanks Yumi!

    On my dehydrated combo skin, the Rimmel Renew & Lift Foundation is perfect. It doesn’t feel thick and covers really well. Those who have oilier skin may find it greasy though.
