Featuring #GoldenRose today! On brows; Dream #Eyebrow Pencil in 304. This is such a perfect shade for me. Easy to apply & blend and lasts for a long time giving a natural look. On eyes; Cat's Eyes #Liner in Intense #Black. The formula dries quickly, becomes smudge free and is quite #waterproof. The applicator is thinner than the most. I used their Silky Touch #Blush On in 207 on my lids and two coats of Sexy Black #Mascara on my top and bottom #lashes. Loving my clump free lashes. On lips; I used #lipliner in 221 and Velvet Matte #lipstick in 19. The lipstick feathers out a bit but liner keeps everything in place. The formula goes onto the lips smoothy without drying them at all. It stays until I eat anything which is pretty awesome because usually my lipstick is gone within an hour or so. On face; I used no #foundation or #concealer and only used Golden Rose Silky Touch Blush On in 221. The brush that comes with it is way too harsh so I use my #contour #brush by @realtechniquesbeauty These are Velvet Matte Lipsticks by #GoldenRose Top to bottom: Shade 19, Shade 12, Shade 08 & Shade 26! @goldenrosemalaysia @godelrosetr #goldenrosecosmetics #goldenrosemy #lipstick #mattelipstick #makeup #bblogger #lippielove #lipstickswatch #mascara #eyeliner #instareview #ilovemakeup #naturalbrows #itsnotaboutthebase
