Thank you so much for posting the details for the online headband store. I have actually been looking for a good seller of headbands for such a long time and they are perfect <3 . Also Marlena those red lips look absolutely fantastic on you, probably because you have such a lovely smile.

The best look ever! The red lip suits you, and I love to see your hair up! I’m a mama, so I say, “get your hair out of your face.”

Tried the eyes- love love love the white on the lid, esp nice for hooded eyes. It was all looking good, until I tried the finishing- outer V smear and eyeliner disaster! Next time I’ll stick with the basics.

Jenny, that’s the story of my life!!!! Practice makes perfect, though I think the bent eye liner brush will help (need to get me one of those)

By the way … is there no longer a user forum? I wanted to ask how I can keep red lipstick from bleeding. I’ve only ever found one (Kat Von D Foiled lipsticks) that don’t bleed past my lips. I’ve tried primers, I’ve tried liners …. they don’t seem to do the trick. Even red GLOSS bleeds on me. :(
