Maybelline x Ashley Longshore Loyalist + Pioneer SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Kit have launched and even though I hate the formula I simply need these as an Ashley Longshore fan girl.
If you take the St. Charles Streetcar and drop off in the Garden District you can walk a few blocks past the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 to get to Magizine Stree but you might to sit a spell, spend time at the Karstendiek Family tomb you might just see a famous vampire lurking there. Or wander over to the Mayfair Witches tomb perhaps they’ll offer you a nice potion to revive a long since dead one! Don’t forget to take a peek in the Garden District Bookstore before leaving for Magazine Street! Tucked on the shelf with the Anne Rice novels you’ll find a book of photos and memories of the many Anne Rice launches and signings including ones of her funeral because if nothing else we all want to have a jazz funeral am I right?
Walking a few blocks in the Nawlins heat isn’t my favorite past time and even though there are many trees in the Garden District for shade and the beautiful buildings will take your breath away it still feels like that small walk is a rather long one. Thankfully enough once you arrive at your final destination many of the shops have air conditioner. Phew! But the street is long and it runs for six miles. Some people actually do the entire walk because the antique and vintage shops are just so worth browsing one at a time. Magazine Street is probably one of the more unique shopping locations you’ll find in the city. Of course, there’s always Uber but you’ll miss out on all that beautiful scenery!
Among those shops you’ll find what looks like a little white one story house with a glittery pink sign hanging from it that says “Ashley Longshore”. Ashley may very well be our own modern day Andy Warhol with her bright colored pop culture pieces of art. All the pink, glitter, and loud vibrant shades are very appealing to my girlish good nature. I have a very small print I purchased several years ago that hangs in my kitchen pantry. It cost me a kidney but I do so love it.
I hate Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick with a passion. It feels so tacky and sticky not to mention matte and the long-wear just isn’t for me because I want to remove it as soon as I apply it. But since Ashley designed the packaging on these new duo sets I must have them!
There are two sets available each is $18.98 and includes two full-size liquid lipsticks!
The sets are:
- Dreamer + Believer SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Kit
- Loyalist + Pioneer SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Kit
Ashley’s lovely gift sets are available exclusively online at Ulta.
I do believe I need both!
