Pink, it was love at first sight (A Lipstick Bandit adventure)

* credits for the title go to Aerosmith

Valentines' day is coming up soon and the Lipstick Bandits decided to go pink for the occasion!
I never ever do a full pink look, but it's fun to give it a go once a year, so I really decided to go overboard with it.
Disclaimer: I don't pretend at all that this is wearable or suitable for a date, even on Valentine's day!

Products used:
Nars Sheer Glow in Gobi
Givenchy glowing blush in Lune Rosée (LE - AW 2011)
Mac Blanc Type e/s
Mac Satellite Dreams e/s
No name black gel liner
Clinique High Impact Mascara
Illamasqua Atomic lipstick on top of some Elizabeth Arden 8 Hours Cream

If you have seen the new Illamasqua I'mperfection collection, you must have noticed those gorgeous pictures of dotted winged liner - as if there were freckles around the line. 
I did try do do the same thing with pink here, but not having a pink gel liner (what a fail), I used Illamasqua Sealing gel and the same Satellite Dreams eyeshadows. The effect is quite subtle though.

And new to the Lipstick Bandits this time around - Welcome, ladies!
