Most of these taken after work so excuse the greasy face and faded eyeliner from the waterline =( I did reapply my lips though!

I was pleasantly surprised how my alternative to using a gold lipstick (which I don't own) went with a loose eyeshadow and some lipgloss. I first applied a very sticky, long lasting lipgloss, then used alternating patting and smudging motions with my finger to spread the eyeshadow, and then went back in with a gold eyeliner to give definition to the lips. Surprisingly, this lasted me my entire 6 hour shift at work with minimal fading and a bit of settling into the lines on my lips. The Sugarpill loose shadows are very finely milled, but I could feel some of it going into my mouth and settling under my tongue and in the back of my throat. It isn't too bad, but feels like I breathed in some dust with my mouth.
In any case, I have midterms and projects coming up so I may not be doing any fun stuff like this for a while. I hope you guys all had a fun and safe St. Patrick's Day. I'd love to see what you guys came up with for St. Patrick's Day too!
