      Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer- The pink eyeliner?

      *This post has been in my drafts for 361 days. Thank God Im finally posting.

      Hola! I got so many comments and messages as compliments and people asking me where I got my ‘pink eyeliner’ from, the one I was wearing in my instagram picture.  

      Well if you saw that you probably also saw the video i posted applying the salvation velvet lip lacquer on my lips. And you probably also saw my older post which said I was disappointed with this lip Lacquer. And well, I was. So I used it as eyeliner, yup.

      I bought this in the shade ‘You took my love’, a beautiful bright pink shade that I was super duper excited about since I’ve been liquid lipstick hunting nowadays. Its the new thing. The NYX soft matte lip cream had an absolutely different texture and everything. This is sticky when drying and may come off one of your lips while its in sticky mode. Once it dries, gets super flaky and starts coming off like little dry skin pieces. 

      I’m honestly confused. People have so many nice things to say about these. Maybe I got a bad piece?😔 

      I am not trying to defame MUR. I am a huge fan of their products and was expecting so much from this liquid lippy. Oh well. 

      I needed to look for an alternative use for this. And a little googling brought to my knowledge that liquid lipstick CAN be used as eyeliner, as long as it doesn’t contain harmful chemicals and you don’t get it in your eye. I was super careful with this and my skin isn’t exactly sensitive, so I don’t recommend this to someone who’s eyes/skin get irritated by any makeup. I used an angled brush to create pink wings and today I’m doing the same thing again. Trying to. 

      Please don’t use this on your waterline!

      Hope you found the answers to your questions. 

      Much love, Zenia.
