Powder, Pencil, Liquid or Gel Eyeliner?

Eyeliner often seems like an extra step in your makeup routine, but it can make all the difference. Just a hint of it smudged in between your lashes or a clean line swept across your lash line can glam up your look, add more definition and make your lashes look thicker. Nowadays there are loads of formulas on the market instead of your regular ol’ pencil and they can create heaps of different looks.

Holy crap it’s Mario! I’m actually in the works of doing a Mario themed photo shoot with a photographer, so I’m testing out different designs. I don’t think I’ll be using this one though. It took way too long and the details are way too tiny. The model’s eyes are tiny compared to my drag queen shaped eyes! 

 Ok, so we’ve got the coin counter, those hill things, the piranha plant, the ? box, a Goomba, step things with coins, Bullet Bill, an odd looking Mario in the tanooki suit (with wiggling tail), a mushroom, Koopa Troopa, Yoshi, the flag pole and finally the castle! Ahhh so many tiny little things. I’m quite proud of that Yoshi. Frig, that was grossly tiny. 

On a side note, I need your help guys! I’ve dropped down to 6th place in the Makeupbee/Sugarpill contest. It would mean the world to me if you voted for me! A “like” is a vote!

Let me tell you all about this shit right here. This is Kiko Milano’s Definition Waterproof Eyeliner. Not only is this heavenly black ink super easy to apply with precision, but it also stays on FOREVER, and I don’t mean 6 hours forever or even 12 hours forever I mean two days after you wear it you’ll still have cat eyes forever. Seriously, North Korea could nuke us all and your charred corpse would still have razor sharp eyeliner wings.
As if that wasn’t enough this eyeliner runs for $10 online and in store. That’s it. Titanium strong, pitch black eyeliner for $10 compared to some brands that charge $20 for an inferior product.
Definitely check this brand out, they’re expanding throughout Europe and the US and they have amazing products at super affordable prices, the one near me had a 5 items for $15 sale this weekend! I’m never going back to my expensive eyeliners again!

OVER HYPED: Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner

Benefit’s They’re Real Push-Up Liner when I first heard about it I though it was a really unique concept and the only eyeliner I know of its kind (I have since seen that Maybelline released a very similar liner a while ago) II had extreme high hopes for this product and it turned out to be a real let down. The application was uneven and clumpy; the formula itself was just too crumbly and dry and the applicator wasn’t firm enough to work with such crumbly formula. This product did not work well for winged eyeliner/upper liner as the formula was so soft the line ended up clumpy and uneven. Benefit describe this as a “lash hugging gel liner pen” so I hoped this eyeliner would be good for tightlining, but it was just a big goopy mess, the dry formula sort of “balled” up and wouldn’t grip to the area in between the lashes. In terms of staying power it failed on all counts. Benefit call this eyeliner “budge proof” but in under six hours of wear this eyeliner had completely smudged, it was all above my crease and halfway across my temples, the liner also flaked onto my cheeks. I’m so disappointed with this product and can say it is one of the worst eyeliners I have ever tried, I had hoped for so much more. Out 27th of June
