A month ago Once upon a time.. a handful of beauty bloggers discovered their true calling over a twitter conversation through a mysterious spiritual meeting.
They realized that they were entrusted with the important task of reigniting your love affair with red lipstick. With stealth.

-MAC Blacktrack Fluidline to fill in the ‘mask’
- Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Mirifique on the nose bridge part of the mask to give a satin look to the mask.
- Illamasqua Ore Pigment to trace the top and bottom border fo the mask
- MAC Blacktrack Fluidline on top lashline
- Clinique High Impact Mascara
- MAC Chromagraphic pencil in NC15/NW20 on bottom waterline
- MAC Posie Blushcreme blended from high points of cheeks to the bottom of the mask
- Revlon Colorburst Lipstick ‘Coral’ applied under the bottom edge of the ‘mask’ and blended to deepen the blush. Reviewed and swatched here.
* I don’t know how I came up with these crazy feverish cheeks. I guess I was aiming for something a little bit different- a little bit couture, and a little bit comic book heroine.
- ‘MFV Scarlet’ OCC custom lip tar mix all over the lips
- ‘Black Cherry’ OCC custom lip tar mix in the center of lips.
Okay, so I realised that I didn’t use a traditional lipstick formula. *shrugs*
