Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Rosey nude ($7.99) as well as twist Up Longwear liner in Black diamond ($7.99)
Do ya’ll ever just try a product, no matter what type of product it is, as well as realize…
“How did I online my life before this? exactly how might I potentially have functioned as a human being before I had this [wonderful thing] in my life?”
That’s exactly how I felt when I found the Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayons.
I just recently got my very first Sonia Kashuk products, her Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Rosey nude as well as twist Up Longwear Gel eyeliner in Black Diamond, as well as I haven’t been disappointed.
I’ve always been curious about the line, eyeing it each time I’m at my regional Target store, however nothing had ever pushed me toward one thing or one more (with the exception of this clean cup).
Then this happened.
Sonia’s Velvety Matte Lip crayons have totally altered my belief in the entire lip crayon viewpoint as well as model.
I’ve always discovered other lip crayons to be so hit or miss. If they’re as well big, they can feather easily, as well as if they’re as well skinny, they feel extremely dry, however to me the Velvety Matte Lip crayons are similar to, if not much better than, the NARS velvet Matte Lip Pencils.
I’ve been utilizing as well as loving them in one of my preferred looks, which is a easy feline eye with a strong lip. even when I’m just going to a coffee shop to compose or get some other work done, I try to put a bit makeup on since it makes me feel good, as well as because this look was so simple to produce in a matter of minutes with these lip crayons, I believed I’d share my quick LoTD (Lips of The Day).
Rosey? Yes. Nude? Not a chance.
After starting with moisturizer as well as a easy BB cream (I such as this one by Loreal), I dusted my deal with with a matte powder (the one imagined above from Rimmel) as well as thought about my deal with done. My acne hasn’t been acting up lately, so I didn’t feel the requirement for heavier coverage.
After tight-lining my eyes with twist Up Longwear Gel eyeliner in Black Diamond, I swept the pencil along my lid in a somewhat thick line. I wished to emulate a feline eye that I may finish with a liquid liner. The liner itself is extremely simple to manipulate, however feels much more like a kohl than a gel.
From L-R: Sonia Kashuk twist Up Longwear liner in Black Diamond, Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Rosey Nude, as well as NARS velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella for comparison.
This color combo is, to quote Nicole, what I would phone call my “power colors.” I go back to them once again as well as again. They make me feel confident, they quickly choose any type of ensemble, as well as they compliment so numerous different skin tones.
At very first I believed Sonia’s Rosey nude may be a dupe for NARS Cruella, however after realizing exactly how much much more of a blue-toned red Cruella is, I believe it’s a much better match for NARS Dragon Girl.
The formula is extremely similar to the NARS lip pencils, however is, I believe, less drying.
The finest thing about these Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Crayons, though? I used one coat when I took the picture above right here in this post, as well as for science, of course, took this (not so great) sunset selfie on my method house at least five hours later.
No touch ups!
One coat! After a number of coffees! as well as it appears like I didn’t eat or drink a thing. NARS can’t even provide me that, at least not without some flaking.
What’s your ride-or-die lip pencil? Does having a easy look that you understand you can always go back to make things simpler for you like it does for me? let me know!
