The Taupe to End All Taupes EOTD

I don't know where or who I saw it from, but someone used Linnaeus Cosmetics's Cliff Line wet and oh man it's like the taupe deities shined a light on me. It is an utterly gorgeous color and one that is even more amped up when applied wet. I just did a quick look with it and did some fun red lips that don't necessarily match up together.

Unfortunately, Marin from Linnaeus Cosmetics is on a hiatus from the shop while she starts up school again. Here's hoping she finishes everything she needs and comes back before my samples run out.

My lips are a little overdrawn here but I was practicing my lipstick and gloss application into a more rounded shape around the cupids bow as opposed to my usual flat application.

  1. DUDE! your lips look, erm... 'juicy' :D

    I mean that in the most complimentary, non pervy way!

  2. What a great taupe! I think your lips look amazing! You have such awesome, full lips!

  3. Wow, that lip color is gorgeous. Best of all it's Wet-N-Wild + e.l.f. so it doesn't break the bank! How is the wear time?

  4.  I was going through my eyeshadow samples last night and  I don't know how I never realized this, but Marin/Linnaeus has some of *the most generous* eyeshadow samples of the indie companies out there.  I know it's not just eye tricks due to the bag size, but the samples really do have a lot of product which is great because it allows you to swatch *and* create quite a number of looks with one little bag.  She is amazing! As is this EOTD! :)

  5. Beautiful! I love the lips really 'juicy' looking.

  6. Haha thank you I think :)

  7. I've been on such a neutrals kick lately and Cliff Line definitely fits the bill

  8. I haven't tested out wear time yet but I'll update you when I do!

  9. Yeah definitely, I'm hoping she'll do a temporary stay on her hiatus so I can order some more from her!
