L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner

12 Jun

There is just nothing like a good brown eyeliner.  It’s like an ice-cold glass of tea (or in my case, a Diet Coke) on a hot day… it hits the spot when it’s done just right.  I’ve had my share of brown eyeliner duds, so I was skeptical when I tried this one from L’Oreal.

Was it another dud?  Let’s take a look. . . Continue reading

Battle of the Eyeliner Brushes

10 May

Eyeliner brushes, how much can you really say about them?  Pencil eyeliners don’t need them.  Liquid eyeliners come with their own applicators.  So, why do you need an eyeliner brush?

The answer: gel eyeliner.  You have the control of the pencil eyeliner, but the precision and lasting power of liquid liner.  However, gel liner comes in a pot therefore you need to get a brush to apply it to your lids.

Cue, our next smack down:

Battle of the Black Eyeliners

4 Jan

Black eyeliner is just one of those things you can’t do without.  I used to abuse it back in the day (haven’t we all been there?) but now I try to limit my use so I don’t look like Morticia Adams.

After some experimenting, I wanted to share with you guys some of my favorites, including my #1 favorite eyeliner EVER!  And some duds too, that’ll help save ya some cash.  Ladies and gents, I give you

As If! Urban Decay 24/7 Liners take me back to 1997

14 Dec

Eyeliner, where would I be without you?  You defined a very important time in my life, my 6th grade year when I went through my “goth meets Clueless” phase.   Back then, I would draw black eyeliner all around my eyes and smudge, and pair with my miniskirts, knee highs, and platform tennis shoes.  I have no idea how I go away with this.

Back then, I would just buy whatever my parents would let me get at my local K Mart.  I cannot tell you about the quality of pigmentation of the eyeliners I got back then (although I’m sure they still made me look like a houligan) but I can tell you I’ve learned quite a bit since then.

Fast forward 14 years, and here’s the eyeliner I’ve evolved into using….

Urban Decay 24/7 liners!  Check it out!  Continue reading
