Beware of the Lipstick Bandits.

I am a member of the Lipstick Bandits.  We obsess over lipstick, and convince you that yes, you do need another red lipstick because this one is a blue red, while that one is a tomato red.  Or this one is a matte, and that one is a cream.  You get the point.

Because we are a band of beauty bloggers, naturally we make a pact with a face of the day.  Here’s mine.

Products I Used


MAC Blacktrack Fluidline.  Apply a ridiculous amount as a mask, and line eyes to create a feline shape… mrrreow!
L’Oreal Black Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara.  Generously run through top and bottom lashes.
shu uemura tutu laceflare False Eyelashes*.  Because it’s fun to make your eyes feel like ballerinas.
Illamasqua Alchemy Precision Ink Liner.  Outline the mask with this fine glitter liner.  Because it’s not a Glitter Geek mask without glitter!
Marcelle Pure Gold Lux Diamond Liquid Eyeliner*.  Add a chunkier glitter on top of Alchemy for high shine and sparkle.


FACE atelier 6 Honey mixed with Zero Plus Ultra Foundation.  Nothing says badass bandit like a flawless base.
Marcelle Translucent Medium Face Powder*.  Set with loose powder patted on with a brush.


FACE atelier Revenge Lipstick.  Apply a dark red around the edges of the lips and feather / blend inwards.
Vasanti USA Soft Finish Matte Lipstick.   Apply a true red in the middle of the lips for an ombré effect.

Who am I kidding?

Hope you enjoyed the look. 🙂  I had a lot of fun creating it and feeling slightly creepy while wearing this makeup.  Don’t forget to visit my fellow lipstick bandits’ amaaaazing creations:
