It honestly just depends on what I'm going for. I typically use a pencil brush to place the color and a small brush to blend it out. Sometimes I'll use a fluffy shader to bring it above the color placement and diffuse it.Ingenue, which brush do you use to blend it into the crease? I've been experimenting with different ones, as well as my finger, but my finger is bigger than my eyeand not the best tool for me for these shadows....curious what you and Kate use?
Armani (in Vegas) was out of the Pink Powder... so I'm going to try the local spots. It's in stock online too. I am SO GLAD that the pencils are becoming permanent. It was UNACCEPTABLE that I missed out on getting a Black one! I have the green and the brown.^ I have the no. 1 and about 5 of the waterproof pencils in black, and two in brown. I am glad that they will be perm tho.
have to try the pink powder!
I never got to use the black Armani pencil, but I have the other two and don't have the same issue. I think the Armani pencil may be the superior formula in this case.Every time I use YSL, at least one little chunk tries to make its way to my eyeball.
Somewhere along the line I missed the Rouge d'Armani 'Hot' collection of pinks/corals/reds - I was just on the Armani site looking for the ETK Palette that's supposed to be re-released this summer, and there were the new lipsticks. Yes, I am slow. Ingenue, I saw your blog post about 520.....holy cow, that is-worthy.......so the other colors didn't do it for you, eh? It's so hard to tell from the online color 'swatch' (not a swatch, just a moronic representation of it). I wish I could see these in-person before I order, but guess I'll have to take my chances. I'm going to see what the Armani site shipping is like before I decide......
