Smudge & water proof eye pencils, love ‘em!

Recently I’ve been wearing a lot of eye pencils, you know those you apply with a quick smudge and then need fire and laser to get rid of in the evening. Love it!

All of the lines represented in the product list are great, so if you find other shades that you like more than these, well, they’re probably just as good.

Role Play

Todays look! I’m wearing a sparkly red OCC Lip Tar called Role Play, seen swatched here earlier today. To tie the eye look together with the lips I first applied a plummy lip pencil as an eyeliner on my top lid, smudge, then my smokey purple eye pencil a little closer to the lashline, then smudge again. It gives a delicate hint of plummy pink that flirts with the lip colour without looking matchy-matchy.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Moderncraft Collection Lip Tars

The OCC fall collection 2013 called Moderncraft is inspired by 1920′s cabaret looks and the old Berlinian art scene (See the entire collection + promo pictures over at Phyrras blog). Do I even have to tell you that I’m in love? The three products that I just had to try were the three darkest Lip Tars. The Lip Tar is heavily pigmented liquid lip paint that you apply with a brush, a modern cult product for us lipstick lovers.

I bought mine from the OCC website, had to pay customs though but it was totally worth it.

 

Role Play – Deep maroon with red pearl
Anita – Browned burgundy
Black Metal Dahlia – Blackened burgundy with red pearl

Scarlet

I’m so excited to wear beautiful bright lipsticks again, it’s definitely the best thing about fall! Getting back to fancier makeup habits you know. Here’s a scarlet red beauty from Make Up Store called.. well.. Scarlet! Matte, thick and ultra creamy, like a vintage dream. I paired it with my favourite eye makeup right now, a quick smudge of a this shimmery plum coloured pencil. I love what it does with my eye colour.
