Eye and Lip Favorites: Jan 2015

Just going to jump straight into things here here 🙂

Eyes

➳ Clinique lash doubling mascara: Gives me “Gone with the Wind” lashes like no other! This mascara opens my eyes up so much in my opinion, which is important for me since my eyes are so tiny. I like the brush on this since it’s in a cone shape. For me, it really helps to get to the small lashes on the inner corner of your eyes, and your bottom lashes. Only thing I can say that’s kind of bad: DON’T under any circumstances accidentally even get a little of this in your eye…it’ll sting like a b*itch!!! I got the smallest speck of this on my eye one day and had to wipe all my makeup off because I essentially cried off everything on one side of my face. Anyway, if you don’t ever get this in your eye (not that you should, I guess I’m clumsy), it’s amazing. It’s even been nice enough (when layered with my Maybelline Lash Stiletto) in my opinion that I’ve been skipping lining my eyes!

➳ Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Black Velvet: I stopped lining my waterline a couple years ago, and as a result stopped buying black eyeliner for a while. I got this pencil in a Sephora gift bag with this haul, and started using it over break. It’s very black, which I like, and it…glides on! It’s extremely smooth, and doesn’t go anywhere throughout the day. The only thing I don’t like is that since it’s so smooth and soft, it melts down pretty fast, but I guess that’s to be expected.

➳ Lorac Pro Palette: I don’t usually wear eyeshadow, so this has been great for practicing looks. The shadows are amazingly pigmented, they’re buttery smooth, and there are plenty of colours that can create a bunch of looks. More times than not, I end up wearing a neutral gold look on my lids with this. I really like the colours, and the quality is amazing. I’m happy I finally purchased one of these and can’t wait to create more looks with it.

Lips

➳ Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Colour in 902c Bare it All: I stopped wearing this for a while because it was coming up too pink on my lips and made me look kind of weird, but since I started putting my concealer over my lips, it’s helped subdue the colour a bit more, so I’ve been liking it much much more lately. I suppose this is also an indicator that I should start using lip liners…

➳ NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Abu Dhabi: I went in looking for a brown based nude around the middle of the month, and I came out with this! It’s replaced my NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair as my go-to nude colour, and it may even be more of a favourite than my Wet n Wild lipstick! The colour is described as a deep rose-beige on the NYX website. On me, it looks like a nice brown based pink, unlike the Bare it All Lipstick which comes off as more pink on my lips. I think this might bum the Wet n Wild Lipstick off of my favourites list in the future…
