I wasn't going to post, quite yet, about makeup. Not that I don't have much, mine you. I just wanted to establish my blog around nails. However, today's trip into Big Lots welding a boon for lip liners.
I found these all in a bunch in a crate at the front of the store. After some rummaging and a..cough, cough...test swatch...I knew I'd get a few of these. It's Maybelline's Moisture Extreme Lip Liner.
The swatch at the store felt so smooth and creamy on my hand that it just had to happen. So I picked out a red, pink and nude.
Then, before I even left the parking lot, I swatched all three on my hand. (I ended up putting the Nude on my lips.) Do you know that it was almost 2 hours later and this is how the test swatches look? I even tried to rub the evidence...oh, I mean, the TESTS off my hand. And this is what they looked like even after that! Heck, I had washed my hands twice before I took this picture.
Swatches are top to bottom: Wine 60, Nude 95, Red 80. Same order as the picture of the pencils above.
Now, I've seen liners like this demonstrated on QVC. But I figured that they weren't REALLY rubbing hard. But I promise you, I was trying to smudge these. Note even a softening of the lines. And for a buck, I've struck makeup gold!!
Have you tried Maybelline's Moisture Extreme? What's your color? Have you ever had a lip liner that had this durability?
