Lipstick Bandits!

Hold on to your lippies, ladies - a new gang is plundering the blogosphere, ready to snatch away an unattended lipstick. We're... Lipstick Bandits!

I had to join the Bandits as soon as I'd learnt of their existence; firstly, remember how I kidnapped that poor Rouge Coco Chanel in the woods? Secondly, I'm from Seattle, and we have a great superhero tradition going on in the city - so there must be some supervillains as well [insert evil cackle]. Lastly, I might just be a bad person...

So, I'm officialy joining forces with Arianne, Dani, Danielle, Larie, MM, Tracy, Rae (the original bandits), and the new bandits: Danielle - Bloomin' Beauty, Jen - My Funny Valentine, Xiao - Messy Wands and Paris - My Women Stuff, the lipstick musqueteers of the blogging world. What it means for you is that once in a while, we'll be picking up some make-up related topic, and posting about it on a specific date on our respective blogs; kind of a like a simultaneous tag, if you will. And we might snatch some lipsticks in the process.

Enough of that! The photos you're seeing are my membership application; we were all required to present a mask make-up with obligatory red lips. I wouldn't be myself if I didn't reach for Sleek Make-up True Color lipstick in Cherry, a dark, blue-based red beauty of a lippie. The mask was penciled in using GOSH Waterproof Eyeliner in Black with matte black eyeshadow on top and a selection of three loose pigments: Barry M Winter Berry, Barry M Petrol Black and Jesse's Girl Pure Pigment Eye Dust in Secret Weapon; how fitting, right?

Now... hide your lipsticks, my dears!


  1. Hi Rocaille! Fellow bandit here and I like how you did your eyes with the green and purple :)

    Just an FYI but I'm a Lipstick Bandit groupie, the #1 groupie in fact :D

  7. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek, another bandit! (I'm the one who coined the term "Lipstick Bandit", btw. ;) )

    I love the turquoise in the inner corners and the purple on the lids! Just as I think the bandits might start duplicating, everyone ends up with a totally unique look! Love it!!

  8. Ahhh, you last picture got me...
