G’day Mate Indeed…

Prediction: You are all going to love me for this one!

Australia has been responsible for providing the world with many great gifts; Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman, Baz Luhrmann, Ugg Boots, Poppy King, INXS, Olivia Newton-John, Helen Reddy (don’t judge me, everybody loves “You and me Against the World”), the list goes on and on.

At this point I’m fairly certain you are rereading the list above, nodding your head at every name mentioned but taking a double take at Poppy King. You may not know her name now but you will remember it well once you try today’s item of choice.

Poppy King is a native of Melbourne, Australia who wasn’t quite satisfied with the lipstick selections down under, so she did what most awesome, take charge ladies do, she decided to make her own. Lipstick Queen is that company and today’s product is their Invisible Lip Liner.

All I can say is AMAZING! This is the perfect product and for so many reasons. Not only does it work with absolutely any lipstick color out there, it works equally well with glosses and stains. For lack of a better phrase, this product is idiot proof.

To be honest, I’m pretty bad at drawing any form of line, anywhere, even with a ruler, so you can only imagine the difficulty I have trying to outline the shape of my lips. This product is 100% colorless, so basically, you cannot screw this up. Even with the reddest of colors, you get a perfect shape every time, with no color bleeding at all.

Thank you Australia for Poppy King. I can forgive you for your creation of Vegemite, but only because you are also responsible for the creation of my brother in law and niece!

So line away lip lovers, this item is the real deal!

Simply the BESS…

Noooooo…my recent Labour Day weekend trip to NYC did not render me illiterate (destitute possibly, but illiterate, never).  Today’s product recommendation is all about Bess, Edward Bess…or rather his totally, amazing lip liner.

Many chose not to wear lip liner at all, some wear it wrong (dear Lord, please allow me to never see another pair of lips outlined-EVER)!  What separates Edward Bess’ Lip Liner from all the dozens and dozens of other companies out there, is his choice of color selection.  Simply put, he offers no color selection.  (Think of it as liner for dummies).  He offers one option, NATURAL, and I kid you not, it works!  I’ve spent so many years trying to find that perfect liner to match my lipstick, or one whose pigment works with my lip tone.  Edward Bess Lip Liner in Natural works perfectly with every color lipstick I’ve tried, from the palest of pales to the most flattering fuschias, this liner rocked them all.

I promise you this will be the last liner you ever buy, not only does it work with just about every color, you get TWO of them in the pack…($29 at sephora.ca and neimanmarcus.com).  I know you’re going to love this one….

*A little bonus tip:  when applying lipstick, apply liner after your lipstick, it’ll help blend the color, define your lip shape and stop any bleeding/running of color.  I hope you all fall in love with your perfect pouts after this one!  Enjoy…xo Elisa
