If you want your lipstick to smell like a Japanese fish market and the color to not last, this is the lipstick for you. Unfortunately, I want neither of those things. This lipstick actually lasted less time than a regular lipstick. The gloss coat stunk, really bad. I took this product back immediately. I cannot think of one redeemable quality for this lipstick. Cover Girl should be ashamed of themselves!
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Espresso Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

I’ve always loved the way false eyelashes give my eyes a defined, lined look. Unfortunately, it is impractical for me to wear eyelashes regularly (at least for my day job, anyway). This led me on a quest for eyeliner that gives me that perfect lash line. Pencils didn’t cut it, shadow as a liner was too boring, and liquid eyeliner was a total mess because I cannot hold my hand steady to save my life. Bobbie Brown gel liner, when applied with the BB eyeliner brush, solved all these problems. Tanya Miller, a Bobbie Brown National Artist and Trainer, demonstrated this product to me. This is my first product from BB. I’m a PPP brown eyed, faked blonde, and the Espresso Ink liner makes my dark eyes stand out. It works for both a natural and dramatic look by extending it a bit beyond my natural eye to give me a little flair. I found my HG liner!
Glitter + Matte = mid 1990’s. That is not necessarily and bad thing. Rocker (on me) is a darkish neutral red. The matte formula is drying, but fairly long wearing. Glitter and matte is a paradoxical combination. The glitter is dispersed unevenly when applied over the lips, however one must be close up to see the glitter. Word on the street is that matte is back, so Rocker would be a good way to wear a unique matte shade. Definitely an evening look…it might be too much when going to the gym or dropping the young ones at soccer. I would definitely repurchase, and in fact I already did. My friend Gil (who introduced me to the lipstick years ago) told me a nasty rumor that it was being discontinued. Being the trusting person I am, I stocked up, only to find that Gil was wrong yet again. Recommend for the drag queen look-, which I love.
