Happy Holidays! Now, what did Santa gave ya? I hope you got this beautiful Lancome Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette, LOL! because this all-in-one compact palette is just gorgeous! With just the size of a tiny compact (a little bit larger than Dior 5 Couleurs and Chanel Les 4 Ombres), these set of eyeshadows are everything you’ll ever desire for a quick, natural and long-wearing eye makeup.
Mix and match, contour and highlight, all-in-one single palette that shades the entire lid, creates crease, brightens, sculpts and lines. Isn’t that just what we all need? Oh well, plus a brush. 🙂 and this compact is ready to go straight into our tiny purses or it’s even better for traveling. So versatile, indeed.
Although pricey, this palette delivers good pigments and has great textures. Also, the colors are long lasting and the shades with shimmers have zero to minimal fallout. On top of that, this Lancome Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner can also be used wet for that smoky eye effect. That’s purrrfect! The possibilities are endless.
The shade above is 109 (French Nude), which is more for a daytime wear but can be versatile and blendable for that nighttime look.
Happy Holidays Everyone! Hope y’all are having a great time this holiday season. Speaking of holidays, who wouldn’t want some dramatic holiday eyes? For a long time, I’ve been wanting to update my collection of eyeliners, and I’ve decided to level up my eye drama game by adding some colorful eyeliners in my stash.
I’ve always wanted to try Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils because they seem like a huge favorite in Sephora, both in stores and online. To see what the fuss was all about, I decided to try them in store and guess what? Another love at first swipe. 🙂 and I was no longer puzzled why these UD 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliners gained so much love.
These eye pencils apply smoothly and they don’t budge once set because they’re waterproof. Their soft and creamy consistency allow for a more precise application and can be easily corrected or blended. They’re also extremely pigmented and can be great for creating a natural to dramatic smoky eye look. Most importantly, they come in vast array of colors, I mean vast! totally vast! you want dark brown? medium brown? light brown? gray brown? brown with shimmer? mattes? name it, they have it! OMG, me likey already! 🙂
So, for a preliminary addition to my stash, I added the shades that I’ll need for eye contouring and highlighting, like:
Verdict: These are amazing eyeliners that work like super expensive designer eyeliners (Hello Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof) but for a fraction of the price. I can’t say anything bad about these eyeliners because for me, they’re almost perfect, except that, you’re gonna need to carry a sharpener with you at all times. 🙂
Whaddup All! I’d like to do a quick review of these cute and useful false eyelashes that I took with me on my latest trip. I cannot describe how much I love these inexpensive and natural-looking falsies. All I know is that these falsies always travel with me whenever I go on an extended trip and I need to look my best. Not my exaggerated best, but just normal and natural best, LOL. Whatever that means, but yeah, give way for Eylure Natural 020 Fake Eyelashes. Yeah, they’re fake, but they make your eye makeup game look fabulous yet still natural, at least in effect.
I used to be a fan of Ardell Babies Black, well, I still am, but I find those to be slightly thinner, weaker, and trickier to apply than most falsies. These Eylure 020s are firmer and these feel quite sturdier than Ardell’s, though both give a natural effect on the eyes. I cannot speak for the adhesives that came with these because I’ve always been loyal to the Duo adhesive for falsies and it has never failed me.
If you have hooded eyes, you may want to curl your lashes very well before applying these Eylure 020 falsies as these seem to have been already “well-curled”, so you want to make these look well-blended with your natural uncurled lashes once applied. You may or may not apply mascara right after. But, either way, both will still give a natural look.
I got these falsies HERE and I hope that you give this a try.
