The Vivid Rock Star was just a big Flirt

I knew I wasn’t leaving the house today, and I wanted to be wild and dramatic for this post after a series of pretty wearable looks. The colors didn’t blend as well as I would have liked but I still love the crazy bold effect.

One thing I did learn was that the tarte liner that came in the True Blood palette really irritated my not-very-sensitive eyes. I wore it on both waterlines and my eyes stung and watered for an hour. I imagine that this would really irritate people with sensitive eyes. I haven’t worn this liner before, so I’ll have to see if it irritates my eyes if I just wore it on the upper lashes. What I DID like about this liner is that it went on SO smoothly! The liner is very soft, though, so I imagine I’ll go through it pretty quickly. Also, I’ll have to be careful not to twist up too much product at a time or it could break off since it’s so soft. After I got over the irritation, though, I just checked how it’s doing as I write this 10 hours after taking the pictures… and the liner is still on both bottom and top waterlines. Incredible!

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
