Astor EyeArtist Definer Automatic Eyeliner & Soft Sensation Lipstick

On the whole, Astor isn’t really a brand I tend to pay much attention to, so it’s quite unlikely I’d ever have tried the items in today’s reviews if it wasn’t for mother Nessie, the makeup enabler, who some months ago picked up this lipstick and liner set for me, the Astor EyeArtist Definer Automatic Eyeliner and Soft Sensation Lipstick.
