CREATIVE Things To Do With Liquid Lipstick.. Meng Meng

1: Why not wear your lipstick completely off center like in the image above?  Similar concepts were used for kabuki and greek theatre masks to convey multiple personalities or sometimes a character’s “double” face.  Plus Comme des Garcons sent models down their Fall 2004 runway show in this exact style and since Rei can do no wrong, it’s at least worth a try. 2: Liquid lipstick makes for a great eyelid stain.  Choose the color wisely and start by dabbing on a tiny amount and blending quickly.

Maison Margiela Replica, Across Sands

Robin’s Take: Across Sands is part of the Replica (Reproduction of Familiar Fantasies) perfume series by Maison Margiela.

It’s a liquid eye foil that you can smudge on with your fingers, the wand applicator or in this case, a brush. I layered several coats to get the intense color. I kept the rest of her face natural with just a touch of blush (the new NARS liquid formula!) and a pinky nude lip.
