Viva Glam

Have to rave about a few things that I have no idea why I waited so long to try ...

First of all, if you have issues with bleeding lip colours, you have absolutely GOT to get your hands on the MAC Prep and Prime for lips. At first when I put it on it just seemed like a normal lip balm so I wasn't impressed ... but then about three minutes later it was really tacky feeling so I was thinking that it might actually hold the lip colour on. OMG! My lipstick stayed on until I had to wash it off after work ... over eight hours! And it didn't bleed at all ... lipcolours normally bleed after less than an hour on me because I have lots of lines around my lips from playing the oboe for 14 years ... this stuff is truly truly amazing.

The other rave is Viva Glam I lipstick ... it is a truly amazing red. I felt so great wearing it today ... it is a matte lipstick but still incredibly comfy ... definitely a new HG red for me!

  1. WOWZA, WOWZA!!!!
    I LOVE that red color!!! And it looks so perfectly applied!!
    The whole look is great!

  2. LOVE the eye colors! My wish list just keeps getting longer. Oh, and I'm adding Prep + Prime for Lips to the list too. Fabulous as always, Erin!

  3. That is incredibly gorgeous! I have aquestion though, why do you apply Krystal prior to your lip colors? You always look fantastic, so I want in on the secret!

  4. thanks for the review on the MAC lip prep product... i haven't worn dark lipsticks in years bc of the bleeding and feathering.

    viva glam I is my all time favorite red... i have worn it since the mid's STILL a classic! and you look wonderful in it.


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
