Pink Lemonade

•••
I was trying to figure out what to wear with the new Meow Pink Inc blush in Lemonade. The color is described as clear crisp lemon drenched pink. In the jar, it looks a bit like a dreamsicle (pale orange) and on the skin it looks sort of like pink lemonade or pink grapefruit on me. I found it quite flattering.

I eschewed liner in favor of trying waterproof mascara on my lower lashes. I should mention that I was impressed that I had minimal blackness on[...]
