After Sunday's Toronto Beauty Blogger Meetup most of us took a stroll to the MAC's Pro Store on Queen Street. After selecting a handful of items that I needed restocking, I added a couple of things from MAC Cosmetics' up and coming collection Too Fabulous. A fellow blogger Delia showed me what she bought and I was complaining that Spice lipliner is too orangy on me and I wanted a neutral liner with a slightly more pink undertone. Delia then pulls out of her bag a lipliner appropriately named Boldly Bare. After swatching this on my hand I had to have it.
This lipliner from MAC is a beautiful neutral light brown-pink shade with no orange undertone. I've included pics of of yours truly wearing this liner as a lipstick. This color can definitely be worn alone as I did in the first pic or with a swipe of gloss overtop as I'm wearing in the second picture. Its unfortunate the pics I've taken were not the best, but the color is still awesome! Just a rule of thumb, if you're going to wear a lipliner all over your lips, please, please ensure that your lips are properly exfoliated and hydrated. Just like a matte foundation lipliners/lipsticks with a matte finish are unforgiving and will enhance every indentation, wrinkle or dry spot. A lipbalm applied over your lips then dabbed with a tissue is a good idea when wearing dry matte liners on your lips.
I've noticed my buddy Michelle from Lipstick Rules has posted her pics sporting the same liner. Her pics are clearer. Check out her blog.
I have just one regret.........that I didn't buy two of them. That's next on my list. Thanks for stopping by.
