Preview: Bobbi Brown Wild Rasberry Lip Crayon

Today was the unofficial first day of spring in New York; the weather was simply gorgeous! It was a perfect day to dress up and create a fresh spring face. I decided to play around with Bobbi Brown's Lip Crayon in Wild Rasberry (from an upcoming collection later in the year--I got my hands on a sample). It's different from the Quick-Time Lip Crayons out now and I simply adore the pinkish-coral (at least on me) color! It's a little different for me since I usually go with shiny lips.

Lip Pencils used to scream 'middle-aged wrinkled lips' to me, until I tried this. I absolutely love the texture--it's smooth and creamy! It didn't take me much time at all to apply it, either. I simply outlined my lips and then filled it in with the same crayon. My lips were a little flaky so I dabbed a clear lip gloss in the middle, to deter the attention away from the ugly state of my lips.

I was attending tabletop trade shows all day, so I needed a professional look with a little kick to it. I tried to go for a more natural look today with just a tad of pencil eyeliner instead of my usual thick, line of black liquid liner. I think my eyes look brighter and wider, which I like :)

Dior Concealer in Medium Beige or 420
Laura Mercier Secret Brightener (my savior!!)
MAC Skinfinish in Medium Dark

Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC e/s in Paradisco (entire lid)
MAC e/s in A Little Folie (in crease)
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero
Cargo Mascara

MAC Sheerblush in Sunbasque

Bobbi Brown Lip Crayon in Wild Rasberry (There isn't anything wild about it!)
MAC plushglazz in Nice Buzz (just a dab in the middle)

(Thinking about whether I should wear flats or heels, I had a lot of walking to do)

(Realizing the chain broke on my favorite knee-length boots. Shucks!)

I'm on the hunt for a good tinted moisturizer that gives me enough coverage at the same time. Any suggestions?

Thanks for stopping by, Mrs. Diaz!

Thanks Eru! No, the lip crayons are not drying at all and my lips get dry fast. I highly recommend them!
