I’ve never been a huge fan of hookah (gasp, I know). It always hurts my lungs && it’s expensive && I always just end up eating the hummus that’s suppose to be for the entire table…whoops.
But, my friends and I were bored the other night and looking for something to do. We don’t have our own hookah, so we tried EVOKE’s Electric Cigars! (With cool lipsticks on of course!) — It was our weird version of a girls-night-in!!
My friend Adriana rocked Maybelline’s Siren in Scarlet (#690, pictured left) and my friend Robin stunned in Maybelline’s Craving Coral (#685) both only $8!! WIN!
Maybelline was awesome enough to give them to me for f r e e at Cosmo’s FunFearlessLife Conference two weekends ago, so I thought I’d give them a go!!
Adriana’s was much darker than Robin’s and really popped against her tan complexion! The lipstick was very creamy and went on really nicely!
Robin’s color had coral undertones, which looked incredible with her purple-ish hair!
I went with a dark, ruby Elizabeth Arden Lipstick called Beauty (#39, found here). The inside of the packaging said, “To be beautiful is the birthright of every woman- Elizabeth Arden.” Damn straight!
I’m o b s e s s e d with the color! (I’m wearing it right now as I write this post LOL) And even after drinking my coffee it hasn’t dulled! How this is possible, I do not know… but I do know I love it.
After our beauty prep, we were ready for the cigars!
The Berry Shake flavor we tried out was very strong! It wasn’t my favorite taste, but I’m not a huge berry-flavored-food fan to begin with. We wanted to play around with all different ways of blowing out the smoke. (I cannot make an O for the life of me :/ )
In case you’ve never used an E Cigar or E Cigarette, they’re super simple. All you do is remove the plastic heads on either side of the cigar, inhale, and the smoke will fill your mouth! If it’s working properly, the end of the cigar will light up. That’s it! You can even smoke them inside!(Note how we started outside but had to move to our living room because we can’t stand the cold!)
We all got really lightheaded from trying to get the perfect picture LOL
But we did get some cool pics, so I guess it was worth it!!
I, of course, got nauseous after about two inhales, so I let them play with it haha! I was happy to just sit back and capture as the cool pictures unfolded.
How do you guys spend your girls-nights?!
I’d love to hear any of the things you guys do!

LOVE these pics and also those lipsticks – really nice contrast between the matte Maybellines and the lustrous Arden.
