The Lipstick League – week of 5.9.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 12 - 2011

Question of the Week: – Your favorite type of eyeliner: cream, gel, pencil, liquid or something else?

Answer: — Unlike most beauty bloggers (it seems), I’m not a massive fan of gels or creams.  Everytime I reach for my eyeliner brush, it’s dirty – which means that either a). I’m a grot or b) I need a stash of cheap eyeliner brushes, but either way – it means that I’m too lazy to favour that style of liner.  At the moment, I’m mostly using liquid or powder but you still can’t beat a bit of smudgy kohl pencil for a smoky look.
