Second Photo-Wearing Milani Lip Flash in Photo Flash

 I decided to post this picture so you can see a before and after of the eye makeup
Products Used/Steps
Face:
-After moisturizing my face I applied a thin layer of Chanel Vitalumiere foundation
-Under the eyes I patted Bobbi Brown corrector and then a bit of Laura Mercier Secret Concealer 
-To set concealer and for a bit of a brightening effect I used a fluffy brush and Laura Mercier Secret Brightening powder
-Chanel natural loose powder was applied all over (except under the eyes) with a large powder brush
-Using a angle blush brush (MAC 168) I contoured with MAC Blunt Blush
-Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze was applied on the top of the cheekbones to highlight
Eyes:
-I filled in my brows using Milani Brow Kit 
-I began to prime and correct the lids with Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Buff (a shimmery/subtle champagne color)
-On the lids I patted MAC Shroom eyeshadow 
-On the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes I used the lightest strip of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze
-Then taking my bent eyeliner brush I lined my eyes with E.L.F. cream liner in Midnight
-I coated my lashes once with Prestige My Biggest lashes Mascara
-Ardell Accent Falsies in #301 were applied
-LORAC Multiplex 3D Lashes mascara was used on the lower lashes
Lips:
-Milani Lip flash in News Flash 02
-Milani Lip Flash in Photo Flash 04 
 Now for the quick review on Milani's Lip Flash Full Coverage Glossy Lip Pencils
Both lip flashes are opaque and deliver full coverage wear. They contain glitter but I do not find them to be drying or feel uncomfortable on my lips . However, I do find that News flash is creamier and easier to apply than Photo Flash. This may be because the glitter is more obvious on Photo Flash. In terms of lasting power I find that both have a good average wear (2 + hours) before the color begins to wear off. Overall, I am very happy with these lip pencils because they are pigmented as a lipstick with a glossier and glittery finish that does not look cheap. 
Available at Target and drugstores/ $6-7.00 each
