Darker lipsticks?

I’m going to make this short and sweet.
I. Love. Dark. Lipsticks.

Here’s the thing – I’m blonde and I’ve always been kind of scared to delve into the dark statement lip. When I was younger it felt a bit overpowering, and just recently I’ve started being more adventurous with it.
I don’t own many dark shades, but I do have this one lipstick from Deborah Milano that is slightly dark and matte, and I love it.

Now, I know it’s not super dark, but I really like how it looks.
If you guys have any suggestions for darker, maybe even berry-colored lipsticks that I should try, please let me know!

Stila – Stay All Day (Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner)

You know when you try a beauty product and you immediately know that you’ll be repurchasing it once you’re out? Guys, it finally happened.

Liquid eyeliner. The most dreaded, single hardest part of doing make up. Sure, the first eye is going to be fine – but wait till you get to the other one. Have fun spending 3 hours trying to make your eyes look identical, or in the best case trying to keep from looking like Godzilla after a break up. But the thing is, liquid eyeliner is just like a very needy girlfriend. You need to dedicate time to it, be patient with it, and everything will be fine. After years of playing around with make up, I have finally gotten to the stage where liquid eyeliner doesn’t scare me anymore. The only thing I do prefer is that it isn’t in a pen form – I really like the tiny brushes that let you paint your cat eye wings. Although, it’s funny and ironic I say that because…

I am in love with the Stila “Stay all day” eyeliner.

Yes, it is in pencil form.
Yes, it’s very pigmented.
Yes, it really does stay all day.

Now, it is on the pricier side, so if you’re just starting to get into eyeliner, play around with some drugstore brands. This baby costs $20 and in my opinion, it’s well worth the money. When you put the cap on and close it, you can feel a little spring that keeps the felt tip from drying out. I’m raving about it so hard that I even took a picture of me after I wore it or over 5 hours. Mind you, I am exhausted and not wearing much make up aside from that. But ya know, we’re all friends here.
