Urban Decay Lip Pencils: Benefits of Lip Liner

I stopped in at Ulta the other day to pick up some Naked Skin Foundation from Urban Decay, which I just love by the way. 

I had to have a look at their lipsticks while I was there. I never really noticed the vast array of lip pencil colors Urban Decay has. They have 35 lip pencil colors, including Ozone which goes on clear, which coordinate nicely with their lipsticks.

Each lipstick has a recommended coordinating lip liner with it to take the guess work out of choosing the right color lip liner. The 24/7 lip liners are long lasting and waterproof. 

So why should you use a lip liner with your lipstick?

The Benefits of Lip Liner

Definition
The thin tip of the lip liner pencil makes a nice sharp line around your lips to define them. You can draw the line slightly outside the lip line to make your lips look fuller.

Keeps lipstick in place
Lip liner is a heavier waxier formula than a lipstick. The line it makes around the lips helps to keep your lipstick from feathering outside of your lip line.

Longer lipstick wear
Lip liner applied to the entire lip area not only defines the lips, it intensifies the lipstick color and helps your lipstick last longer.

Fine line fill in
The clear lip liner, Ozone, which I mentioned earlier, is great for helping to fill in small lines around the lips. Use the clear. Then colored lip liner. Followed by lipstick.

Because lip liners wear so well, I frequently wear lip liner alone without putting lipstick on top. I may put a little gloss on top to add shine.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for good...surgery. It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

Dermatofibromas

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
