I am not a kind of girl who uses loads and loads of makeup. Making face-cream a part of my daily routine was a big, big step for me. I do love blusher (preferably peach) and I really like the effect of lip-gloss. When I have no other option than to wear at least some makeup (job interviews, parties), I'll add a bit of black eyeliner on my lower lid, mascara and translucent powder to control shine, but that's about it.
The thing is, the boy absolutely hates the sticky consistency and flavor of each and everyone of my lip glosses, and if I dare wear some he won't give me any kisses. So I have opted out. I'm not using glosses anymore. I used to love a makeup line called Stila, but for some reason they seem to have stopped distributing it in Europe, or I don't know where to find their products. Back in the day (probably 2002) I fell in love with their lip stains. But I ran out of my last two bars and hadn't been able to replace them with a similar product.
So when I found Seventeen Berry Crush lip stains while looking for products at a pharmacy in London Gatwick, I had to give them a try. Well, I am really happy with them. They are very easy to apply: just like a felt-tipped marker, and, bonus, they come with a lip balm (like an eraser on a pencil). They give lots of color with a natural matte-effect and more importantly they have been approved by the boy which means I get kisses.
Do you have any makeup products that you can't leave without? Any recent discoveries?
