Eyeliner is my favourite makeup product! I think it makes a noticeable difference on your eyes (sometimes a bad one is you apply way too much).
The liquid liner I’ve been using for two years now is Linear Intense by L’Oreal. Liquid and gel eyeliner (I use Revlon Color Stay gel liner) takes a lot of practice to apply it well. I’ve dedicated hours to trying to wing my eyeliner (I have a lot of free time) I still haven’t gotten it down though!
I also use pencil liner sometimes I don’t like it as much though. I’ve tried Urban Decay’s liner but I find it smudges a lot as well as Rimmel’s pencil liner in a beige but I swear it doesn’t do anything! I’m gonna stick to liquid eyeliner! I really want to try Kat Von D’s tattoo liner!
As well as being fantastic artists and great people they also have killer eyeliner!
That is all, excuse that this is just a rant about my enthusiasm for eyeliner.
Here are some of my favourite things so far this summer!
The tinted lip balm is somewhere in between lip balm and lipstick. It’s the lip product equivalent of a teenager. Therefor tinted lip balms are well packaged with bright colours and an edge of sophistication. The key to purchasing them is to avoid glitter and super shiny ones (unless that is what you enjoy). Here are some of my favourites.
I really like Revlon’s lip butter in red velvet it’s extremely pigmented and is a super rich deep red colour. I only ever apply a bit my dabbing it onto my lips. Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Fruit Punch also processes the same qualities. It also has SPF and smells extremely good! Lastly a new newer tinted lip balm I’ve been into is CoverGirl’s Smoochies in #Sweet Tweet (I question CoverGirl’s marketing team, just ’cause you add a hashtag it doesn’t make it cool). It smells really nice and looks pretty natural and glossy. You only really need a few tinted lip balms because quite often the colours and effects tend to be very similar. I should probably learn from that and stop buying them!
Hope you’re having a nice summer!
A few years ago I had a serious love of lip gloss. I’ve tried out a lot, some of them good and some of them pretty bad (I finally decided I needed to move on so I thew out the bad ones). Here are some lip glosses I like and dislike.
I love Maybelline’s Shine Sensational lip gloss in Peach Parfait is smells amazing and looks super pretty and the peppermint one (pictured 1st & 4th). I also love CoverGirl’s Amazemint lip gloss (pictured 6th). It’s super minty and isn’t sticky however I believe they don’t sell it anymore which is sad because I really like it!
I really disliked CoverGirls Outlast Double Shine. I applied it once and it made my lips peal which wasn’t fun at all. I also don’t enjoy sticky lip gloss so the Philosophy ones aren’t my favourite but they smell really good (pictured 2nd, 5th, 8th, & 11th)! The Revlon ColorBurst lip glosses (pictued 3ed & 9th) are really pigmented but they smell kinda weird.
Honestly I’m mostly over my lip gloss phase but I still really like using my favourites!
Here are some of my favourite beauty products from this past month.
Dessert Essence Organics Fragrance Free Shampoo- I recommend this if you tend to have oily hair.
Maybelline Baby Lips in Peppermint- I love how minty and fresh this feels on my lips. I find it moisturizing and it isn’t too shiny.
NYC Liquid Concealer- I enjoy using this under my eyes sometimes and on acne.
Kate Spade lipstick in Bashful Blush- This is in a dark kind of pink colour.
L’Oreal Linear Intense liquid eyeliner- I’ve been wearing this so much lately!
Sorry there haven’t been a lot of posts lately my computer decided it’d be a wonderful time to have the hard drive break. Back to the beauty now! I love lip stains I may just like them because they bring back childhood memories because they’re texture is really just like crayons and markers. Besides that I really like how they look they’re not as scary as lipstick (I’m just scared to wear lipstick cause I’m worried it will make my lips look dried out). Here are a couple of my favourites and a couple I don’t like at all.
1. CoverGirl’s Outlast lip stain is my absolute favourite. Originally I only bought it because I read somewhere Taylor Swift wore it and now I see why she did. It’s in the colour Ever Bloom which is a beautiful natural dark pink. This one has a marker consistency (pictured on right in image above)
2. CoverGirl’s Lipperfection in the shade 250 its a beautiful red that I actually feel comfortable wearing (pictured on far right in image below). I have one of these in a pink version too.
Here are a couple I don’t like and definitely don’t recommend.
1. Revlon’s Just Bitten lip stain in Gothic (pictured left in the second image) which is like a marker. After wearing it for a bit it leaves a red ring around your lips (that’s never cute) and the lip balm it came with on the other end just fell off. It actually happened while I was using, it almost landed in my mouth (it didn’t even smell good like those lip balms you wish you could eat).
2. Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable in Cherish (pictured in the middle in image above) this one puts emphasis on chapped lips which really shouldn’t happen with a product named balm stain.
Clearly Revlon doesn’t carry my favourite lip stains. However I really want to try out the NYC lip stains because a couple of my friends say they’re really good. Stay tuned for some more food and fashion related posts.
