CVS Haul - CoverGirl and Milani

I posted previously about my first Milani gloss Designer Label in the 3D Glitzy Glamour line.  It's full of sparkles and shine, but not much base color.  I also really love that it has a brush applicator.  I was on a CVS trip working my coupons and rewards, Tati (GlamLifeGuru) would be proud!  But since I never have Milani coupons and it isn't on sale that enough (blah blah, justifications, blah) I splurged and got another in the 3D line, In Vogue.  The fuchsia and pink sparkles did it for me.

One slightly odd side-note, I have noticed those Glitzy glosses make my lips ever so slightly numbed feeling for the first 15 minutes or so.  Odd.

Part of my deals were getting 2 CoverGirl items, I decided I need to force myself to practice with liquid liner more so I got a LineExact liquid eyeliner in Very Black and a CG Wetslicks lip gloss in Honey Talks.  The liner isn't the blackest, most opaque, etc.  But it is workable.  I used it today, it will sort of appear in my pictures related to Make Up For Ever Face & Body foundation.  Due to my shaky application and very loose lid skin making life even more complicated, I opted to cover it with shadow.

On to the pictures!
Pretty sparkles!  The Wetslicks gloss on me is a nice nudey beige frosty without looking too frosty!  Nice with a bronze-y summery dewy face (my approximation of bronze-y that is :) ).
The Milani gloss is fairly liquidy, the pink base did settle into my lip lines a bit and you can see the swatch it's bleeding a little into the lines of my hand.  Need a light hand to avoid a mess, I think.
