Two raves: Inglot Aquastic Cream eyeshadows and Beautylish customer service

Inglot Aquastic Cream Eye Shadows 17, 15, 14, 18

I’ve mentioned Inglot Aquastic Cream Eye Shadow so many times that you are either sick of them or curious about them. I hope it’s curious since I’m loving these and can’t get enough.

Let me start with a little story. I was shopping on Beautylish and wasn’t at free shipping yet. I hate paying for shipping to be honest but I don’t mind buying a little more to get to it. I noticed the Inglot Cream shadows and decided to buy one, #15 to be exact. I put in my new address, paid, and checked my email for my confirmation. It came – with my old address!! I instantly contacted Customer Service but since it was a weekend evening I had to wait for them to get back to me. In the meantime I got a notice that my package had quickly shipped – to my old address. When CS emailed me early Monday morning they were as nice as could be and tried to redirect my package. They were too late – but the CS went out of her way and called Fed Ex who was able to redirect. For that I’ll be ever grateful since other brands/companies were not that gracious.

Inglot Aquastic Cream Eye Shadows 17, 15, 14, 18

Now back to these fabulous metallic cream shadows. After using #15 a few times I craved more so back to Beautylish I went and somehow three more ended in my cart. The only negative about this whole story is that no one has good swatches nor any descriptions of the shadows so it was blind guessing. Now though you’ll have descriptions of 4 at least.

All of these Inglot Cream Eyeshadows have a metallic finish – more metallic than any eyeshadows I’ve found. Since metallics are one of the trends of the year this make them even more fun – but I think I’d like them no matter what. I don’t need an eyeshadow primer with these because they act as the primer. I wear them alone or with powder eyeshadows and they last the entire day without one drop of fading or smudging. I like to blend these on my eye with a fluffy eyeshadow brush after applying some directly from the wand.

Inglot Aquatic Cream Shadow #15

Inglot Aquastic Cream Eye Shadow #15 is a gorgeous gold shade. It blends down beautifully on my lids to a soft gold that’s not brassy. There is no shimmer at all in #15 or any of these but there is shine galore.

Inglot Aquastic #18 and #14 are next. In the tube these look similar enough that I wondered if I’d made a mistake. But on the eye they are beautifully different and work amazingly well with my typical wardrobe of eyeshadows.

Inglot Aquastic #18

#18 is the lightest of the shades I have and looks like a silvery taupe on my eyes. It can add a lot of life to shadows in the gray family especially. #14 is a brown taupe that is close to perfection. 14 is the one that will end up getting used up first since it has a touch of gold, some taupe, some brown, and lots of shiny beautifulness.

Inglot Aquastic #14

The last one I bought is #17 which is the one I’m not sure about. I think I’m so used to neutrals that I’m not as comfortable in colors. #17 is a bright lavender with pink tones but I was expecting it to be more pink. I haven’t used this one enough to rate it but I do have shades it should work well with.

I still want more even though I know I don’t need them but just look at #12 with its gorgeous peach.

I just figure that my next order from Beautylish will end up with one more – you know to get to free shipping (wink wink).

Are you interested in the metallic trend? Would you wear any of these?  —  Marcia

Have a beautiful day with Models Own A.M. Kit

Good morning America (and everyplace else), it’s time to get up and face the day and Models Own is here to help. Their A.M. KIT DAYTIME EYES & CHEEK PALETTE is a great one to make you look and feel your best.

Models Own A.M. Kit

samplesaffiliate links

This is a palette that I’d say is more on the cool side of the spectrum but it’s also a neutral palette. It contains 6 eyeshadows and 1 blush. All the shades work so well together making it an easy one to create many looks.

Models Own A.M. Kit

I think of this as the palette I could wear early in the morning for work, yet brighten up for a night out. It’s also a palette I’d keep in a drawer at work since you never know when a great opportunity may arise and you want to improve your looks. (ignore the blush in the picture above since my camera just won’t capture the beauty of it)

Models Own A.M. Kit

What’s wonderful about this palette is that there isn’t a drop of glitter in site. There are 3 matte shades and 3 slightly metallic shadows but no glitter will appear on your eyes.

As you may know, I’m all about eyeshadows, so of course this review is mostly about the eyeshadows!

Models Own A.M. Kit

  1. Creamy beige that has a teeny amount of sparkle in the pan but I don’t see it on my eyes. This is a great lid or brow shade and works with every color in this palette.
  2. A peachy pink matte that is so flattering on. There’s never the appearance of rabbit eyes even though this has a good amount of pink to it. Even though I’m saying it’s a matte there’s no dryness to it.
  3. Metallic shade that is a chameleon. In some lights I see a lot of lavender, in some it looks taupe, and it can even look pink. It changes with the colors that accompany it on my eyes. While it’s a metallic it’s not that shiny once on.
  4. This dark brown applies lighter than it appears. It’s also a metallic in the pan but more of a satin once on your lid. Because I like a dark defining shade on my eyes this is the color that already has a slight dip in it. For me it pulls everything together.
  5. A matte very light nude shade. This highlights my browbone although it works well on the lid and as a light transition shadow.
  6. Another chameleon, this light taupe can look purple or more brown. I’ve worn #3, 5, and 6 together with #4 as a liner and that way it’s more purple. But if I wear #1, 6, and 5 together it all looks more brown.

These shadows need a primer as the pigmentation is lighter than a lot of shadows. Whatever you use to intensify and hold shadow should work well. A good budget brand is Milani Eyeshadow Primer or I like TF Shadow Insurance. I also love this palette with a liquid base like ELF Aqua Beauty Molten Liquid Eyeshadow or Inglot Aquastic Cream Eyeshadow.

Now about the blush – it’s fabulous and I don’t have a good picture of it. It’s a beautiful pinky peach with loads of pigment. And surprisingly the brush in the palette works really well with it. I never find a brush in a palette like this that I like but this one actually is decent even though I prefer a real blush brush.

Models Own A.M. Kit

The blush is much softer and pinker than this picture. It’s a great shade for the palette and for life.

This is one of Models Own better palettes. The shadows are nicely pigmented though not darkly pigmented. They aren’t powdery and I don’t get much fallout from the shadows. They last well all day for me with zero or minimal touchup for night but they absolutely need an eyeshadow primer to show up. The blush is terrific and one I’d love with or without the rest of the palette. It’s very long lasting and very flattering on light to medium skin.

This is an Ulta exclusive and Models Own is often on sale there so keep your eye out for this for yourself or as a gift for a teen just getting into makeup.  —  Marcia

More beauty from Hikari Cosmetics – eyes, lips, and cheeks, oh my!

Last Sunday, Marcia shared her beautiful Hikari products with you – the Jennifer Eyeshadow Palette, Iris Liquid Eyeliner, and Final Touch HD Powder.  This week I have more Hikari to love!  I tested the Jahren Eyeshadow Quad ($15), the Island Glow Blush ($15) and the Fireside Lip Crayon ($13).

Hikari Jahren Eyeshadow Quad

Hikari Jahren Eyeshadow Quad swatches

Jahren Eyeshadow Quad has two satin shadows and two matte shadows.  The names are Sage, Almond, Sable, and Magnetic.  I know which one is Sage, but the others I am not sure about – so I will just go in order top to bottom clockwise!  Top left is Sage, which is a gorgeous satin sage green.  This is a beautiful shade that is especially nice with hazel eyes.  I love it swept underneath bottom lashes – actually a trick Scott Barnes taught me many years ago with a similar shade of green he used to carry.  Next to the green shade is a pretty satin taupe shade.  Love this as a crease or lid shade.  The bottom row has the matte shades, first a light cream that is a great brow shade.  I also use it as an all over wash on days I am in a hurry.  Next to it is a deep chocolate-brown that is perfect for the crease or as a liner.

Hikari Island Glow Blush

Hikari Island Glow Blush swatch

The Hikari Island Glow Blush is a beautiful blush or bronzer.  I wear it as a blush on my low maintenance days, but typically I use it more as a contour.  I sweep it under my cheekbones then put a peachy/pink shade on the apples of my cheeks.  In the FOD pic below I am wearing only Island Glow.  It does give skin a nice glow and it’s tough to overdo this flattering peachy brown.  The Hikari blushes come in nine different shades and I would love to try some of the other shades because I find the texture is great and it really wears well.

Hiraki Fireside Lip Crayon

Hiraki Fireside Lip Crayon swatch

The Hikari Fireside Lip Crayon is really beautiful.  I wasn’t sure I could pull off such a bright color, but I just love this!  Fireside is a matte reddish pink that has some slip.  I put this on and it lasts quite a while.  Most reds turn pink on me, and this is no exception – it leans pink quickly.  It might be different for you based on your body chemistry.  I love the formula, the pigmentation, and the wear.  The Lip Crayons come in ten different shades and I am totally up for trying more of these!

Swatches of Hikari Island Glow Blush, Jahren Eyeshadow Quad, Fireside Lip Crayon

Marcia and I both are very impressed with this cruelty free and PETA certified line.  We are looking forward to checking out more from Hikari, and we hope you are too.  – Lisa

Beautiful eyes with Hikari

If you went to a website and read this: Hikari Cosmetics was founded on the principles of delivering glamorous, sophisticated makeup to women around the United States at a reasonable cost. We may be an up and coming brand, but we plan to take the makeup world to the next level of high-class! From our high-shine, vivid lip gloss collection to the perfect eye color combinations we have something for every woman to fall in love with.” wouldn’t you be intrigued? Both Lisa and Marcia were and we were excited to receive some HIKARI for review. We want to give the line a fair shake so this week it’s my turn (Marcia) and next week Lisa will share her products with you.

HIKARI eyeshadow palette, powder, liquid eyeliner

Anyone who knows me knows I’d rather have eyeshadows and eyeliners than any other cosmetic products out there. I love all cosmetics but it’s the eyes that get me going.

HIKARI Jennifer eyeshadow palette, HD Powder, and Iris Liquid Eyeliner

Hikari has 10 eyeshadow palettes that happen to be on sale as I type for only $5 each. It’s rare to find even a single eyeshadow of quality for that price but if you hurry you can get a 4 pan with great colors for just $5 (regularly $15). I have Jennifer and it’s a beauty. What I love best about this palette is the push and pull of it. Jennifer starts with colors in my comfort zone but then brings in a shade that pulls me away from that, daring me to make my eyes come alive.

HIKARI Cosmetics Jennifer Eyeshadow Palette

Jennifer contains 2 matte shadows and 2 satin shadows. These are loaded with pigment and apply with ease. I find that my eyes need an eyeshadow primer to do justice to the shades. Individual shades aren’t named on the palette but they are on the website so I’ll do my best to describe Stealth, Bellini, Magnetic, Swanky.

Hikari Jennifer shadows

Top left is a dusky blue matte shadow, top right is a light golden cream satin. Bottom left is a matte dark brownish black while bottom right there’s a golden brown.

Hikari Jennifer shadows

I use the light gold on the inner third of my eye and then under the browbone, next I apply the golden brown in the crease. Finally I’ll use the dusky blue on the very outer quarter of my eye and blend it by my lashline. I can also vary the order I use the shadows and I especially like the light gold with the dusky blue. None of these 4 shades are sold individually, just in the palette.

HIKARI Liquid Eyeliner in Iris

My camera hates close ups so excuse this very blurry shot but I wanted you to see the paint tip of their Liquid Eyeliner. What’s particularly nice about this kind of felt head is that you can get a thin line or a thicker line. HIKARI Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner is available in 5 shades:

Fawn- Brown

Slate- Gray

Indigo- Blue

Iris- Purple

Essence- Green

HIKARI Liquid Eyeliner swatches of Iris

Iris is a very deep purple that can also look brown depending on what shadows you wear with it. I like just that pop of purple instead of my typical brown. The liner is terrific since it applies so easily, just gliding on, and it has a long lasting formula so I don’t have to worry about it fading or chipping away.

HIKARI Final Touch HD Powder

The third product I have is one I’m getting a lot of use from. I had given up powders in the heat until I tired HIKARI’s Final Touch HD Powder. This is a pressed silica powder that is light as air and never looks cakey on me. The powder helps blur pores (my nemesis) and fine lines.

HIKARI Final Touch HD Powder and Beauty Junkees brushes

Using a duo fiber makeup brush like my Beauty Junkees ones gives me the light application that I’m looking for to set my makeup. I don’t normally get shiny during the day but I notice that this keeps my face from looking that way yet it’s not so matte that I look ghastly.

Hikari Cosmetics have many products that I’d love to explore. Even their foundation looks light enough for me. With the added attraction that Hikari is cruelty free and PETA certified this cosmetic brand has a lot to offer and the prices are great. Don’t wait long to take advantage of the $5 eyeshadow quads though since that will soon change.  —  Marcia

Eyeko is making us EYEMAZING in today’s Side by Side!

samplesaffiliate links

Eyeko was probably the first brand to make us think about having a ‘wardrobe’ of eye products. We used to think one mascara worked for every occasion – but sometimes we just need defined lashes. Sometimes we want a little more drama. Sometimes we want drama the level of a highlight reel from COPS. The same for brows and of course for eyeshadow – just one product doesn’t cut it. Basically, we love lots of options when choosing what products to wear and Eyeko has given us some excellent goodies to play with!

Lisa’s eyes are wearing Tinted Brow Gel, Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner, and Lash Alert Mascara Wake Up and Go:

It’s been super hot this summer and I have been wishing for a great brow gel to take the place of my brow wax. I have nice brows but they need a little extra color boost and they definitely need some help staying in place. They tend to droop and look shaggy.  I absolutely love the Eyeko Tinted Brow Gel ($24)!

Eyeko Tinted Brow Gel

Eyeko Tinted Brow Gel

Eyeko Tinted Brow Gel swatch

It has a shorter, fatter spoolie, and the gel is tinted. It’s a medium brown with just a hint of shimmer in it. The spoolie really grabs the hairs and puts them in place, and the tint is perfect. It gives the right amount of color and a touch of brightness which opens the eye area. I love this!!

  • Tinted Gel
  • With vitamins, antioxidants, Keratin, Ginkgo Biloba and botanical proteins to promote growth
  • Natural, long-lasting hold without flaking or stiffness

Eyeko Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner

Eyeko Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner

The Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner ($22) is a great liquid eyeliner – it was inspired by calligraphy brushes – that goes on like a thin magic marker. It creates a very thin, precise line like a liquid liner, but without the mess. You can have shaky pre-coffee morning hands and still end up with a gorgeous line. This is especially good for cats eye looks, as well as very precise thick lines.

  • Contains Widelash with a tripeptide boost to promote lash growth for up to 3x more length and volume in 15 days
  • Japanese precision brush tip for single stroke colour
  • Waterproof, long-wear, fade-proof
  • Carbon Black

Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara

Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara

Lash Alert Mascara Wake Up and Go ($26) is a fantastic mascara – this is a must have! The curved brush is excellent for picking up every single lash. It does take several coats to get the full effect, but three coats gives lots of drama that doesn’t smudge, flake, or smear. It thickens up lashes beautifully with fibers and gives tons of volume and definition. It also washes off easily, which is a big plus. I love this mascara and it’s been a heavy hitter in my mascara rotation!

  • Shea Butter to nourish
  • Caffeine to stimulate
  • Arginine to repair
  • Biotinoyl Tripepetide to regenerate
  • Biotin to thicken
  • Full contact helix brush to curl and volumise
  • Carbon Black
  • Award-winning Korean technology
  • Water-resistant tubing formula
  • Zero-waste squeezy tube
  • No running, smudging, crumbling or flaking
  • Paraben-free
  • Cruelty-free
  • Locks in colour and hold for 12hr+

Eyeko Black Magic Liner, Lash Alert Mascara, and Tinted Brow Gel

Marcia’s eyes are wearing Making Eyes 3 in 1 Brush, Me & My Shadow Waterproof Shadow Eyeliner in Topaz, Charcoal, and Bronze:

Eyeko Me & My Shadow Liners and 3-in-1 Brush

Anyone that knows my taste knows I’m a huge fan of cream eyeshadows so the shadow eyeliners from Eyeko are a big hit for me. I have 3 of the 6 shades available (Topaz, Quartz, Taupe, Chocolate, Bronze, and Charcoal) and will need to be at least one more to get myself through the summer. Taupe is calling to me right now and it’s one of the shades that Ulta carries!

Eyeko Me & My Shadow in Topaz, Bronze, and Charcoal

While I will adore the Eyeko Me & My Shadow Waterproof Shadow Eyeliners all year it’s in summer that these really make their mark. They are truly waterproof. These last all day and night until you remove them with eye makeup remover. Water doesn’t take off the color unless you scrub and scrub which you don’t want to do. Putting some remover on a cotton pad removes them so that tomorrow you can try a new combination. To test out these shadow liners I’ve used eyeshadow primer on one eye and left my skin alone on the other. There’s no creasing or fading either way so that saves a step.

Eyeko Me & My Shadow in Charcoal, Bronze, and Topaz

Topaz is a champagne shade that is on the verge of being metallic. It brightens my eyes whether I wear it on the lid or on my browbone. I crave this type of color so it’s #1 with me. Bronze is a bright shade that plays so nicely with my brown eyes. It seems to bring out my eye color. The blending of these is amazing since they are soft and silky. Charcoal can be worn sooty or you can blend it down to a softer gray and that’s where the beauty lies. It has teeny bits of sparkle that don’t travel but livens up your smokey eye look.

Eyeko Me & My Shadow Brush

What makes the Eyeko eyeshadow crayons stand out from the crowd is the brush on the opposite end. It is a great tool to blend these out or to smoke the colors out. The brush makes these liners so much more versatile and a great travel companion.

Eyeko Making Eyes 3-in-1 Brush

I am totally blown away with the Eyeko Making Eyes 3-IN-1 Brush. This is the best travel tool I’ve found in all my searching. Brushes are my thing and I never travel without favorites but Eyeko is going to replace that huge brush set in its compactness. I am loving not only the simplicity of this tool but the way it works. “Travel-friendly packaging ensures each brush is covered and hygienically capped to keep your makeup bag pristine.”

Measuring almost 6 inches long there are 3 brushes and all work beautifully. For the eyeliner brush you just pull out and there’s a nicely angled brush that works well with gel liner as well as the shadow liners. Pull off the the first cap and there’s a rounded blending brush that does its job like a pro. One more pull and you’ll find the define brush that reminds me of the MAC 242 that I use constantly. But this gives me everything I need for only $20. I can’t tell you how great I think this is. There aren’t enough words!

It’s pretty obvious that both of us are thrilled with our Eyeko treasures but what we didn’t tell you yet is about the brand. “Created by beauty veterans Max and Nina Leykind, their mascaras and liners are favored by celebs and hotshot make-up artists alike. With style icon Alexa Chung on board as Creative Consultant – she credits them with creating her favorite look – Eyeko give the definitive edit for eyes.” You can find Eyeko at Ulta as well as their own website (free shipping) and it’s a brand well worth seeking out.

 

Hurry up because time is running out for the LE CoverGirl Katy Perry Katy Kat Pearl Collection!

CoverGirl Katy Kat Pearl Collection

CoverGirl Katy Kat Pearl Collection

Katy Perry has some beautiful products in her CoverGirl line and her limited edition Katy Kat Pearl collection for spring won’t be around much longer! Every item costs under $10 so if you find something you love snap it up now. Coty sent me some samples of a few products and my oldest daughter was happy to model them for me (she has MUCH nicer lips than I do!). This spring is all about shimmers and pastels, trends that work right into summer. Here’s what I was sent to test:

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter ($8.99):  This is available in Tiger’s Eye and Tiger Rose. My shade is Tiger’s Eye. This has an interesting texture that is bouncy and gel-like. You use your fingers to apply, so to avoid bacterial contamination scoop some out onto a steel palette then pat it on with fingertips. The soft, spongy gel dries down quickly into a sheer shimmer that is very pretty as an eyeshadow or a cheek highlighter. I think this is a product for younger faces…those of us with a few wrinkles won’t do well with the creamy texture and the amount of shimmer, but those in their teens and twenties will love it.

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter and Covergirl Katy Kat Eyeliner in Purrmaid

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter and Covergirl Katy Kat Eyeliner in Purrmaid

Covergirl Katy Kat Eyeliner ($6.99):  This is available in Kitty WhisPURR (silver) and Purrmaid (green). I have Purrmaid, a beautiful shimmery teal green. This pencil eyeliner is different from others because it’s easy like a pencil liner, but it has the intensity of a liquid liner. It also lasts all day – a good eight hours for sure. It has this really neat-o smudge tip – I have to admit, I use it with all of my pencil liners, not just this one!

So let’s start with Blue-tiful Kitty.

This was the major reason I asked my daughter to model for me. She has better lips, and there is NO way I can get away with blue lips. Trust me, when I am three breaths away from kicking the bucket I’ll be putting on some pink lip gloss. So, we went full-on blue for a photo, but I don’t think it’s the best way to wear this lipstick at any age.

Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Lipstick in Blue-tiful Kitty

I actually think it’s sublime when paired with Apricat, which I’ll show you in a minute.

Here is full on Apricat, which is a really exquisite shimmery apricot. This is soft, pretty, shiny, and hydrating. The price point is fantastic and if you only buy one thing from this collection, I would recommend this fabulous lippie. Now, check it out with some Blue-tiful on the inner portion of the lips, blended outward:

So pretty, right?? I love it!! The more I play with these products and shades the more I love them. The Katy Kat Pearl limited edition spring collection won’t be around much longer, so be sure pick some up at the drugstore or Ulta when you are out. Once again, Katy Perry doesn’t disappoint!  – Lisa

It’s all about eyes with Jesse’s Girl!

Jesses girl logoWe love testing anything color at the BIZ, but our favorite is probably eyeshadow and eyeliner. They are like magic markers and crayons for adults! Jesse’s Girl, the fashion-forward yet budget conscious line, sent us some great eye products to play with and we can’t wait to share them with you today.  Get ready to play!

Jesse's Girl Eyeshadow Primer and 9 Pan Eyeshadow Compact in Dream Girl

Jesse’s Girl Eyeshadow Primer and 9 Pan Eyeshadow Compact in Dream Girl

Lisa’s having fun with the Eye Shadow Primer ($5.99) and the 9 Pan Eyeshadow Compact in Dream Girl ($3.99)

I just can’t over the prices on these products!! The Eye Shadow Primer has an excellent price and come on – at just four bucks, why not buy all five versions of the 9 Pan Eyeshadow Compact?? These are products to really experiment with – try all those fun looks on Pinterest without any guilt!

Jesse's Girl Eyeshadow Primer

Jesse’s Girl Eyeshadow Primer

The Eye Shadow Primer is very nice. It’s a silky primer that isn’t too wet. It creates a smooth canvas for eyeshadows and increases wear time. I find that when I use this, I get far less creasing, especially with cream eyeshadows.

Dream Girl

Dream Girl

The 9 Pan Eyeshadow Compact is nine pans of playtime. I have Dream Girl, which is a collection of super pretty neutral shades that range from creamy off white to deep shimmery brown. The one black sheep color is the deep purple shade which seems a little out of place, but it actually makes for a great addition to the slew of variations of tan, beige, and taupe.

There is everything anyone could need for a neutral eye in this palette and the deep purple and deep shimmery brown are great for lining or for some lid or crease drama. You will want to layer to get more color payoff, but hey, at this price why not go crazy??

There are four other options available, including Tickled Pink, The Eyes Have It, Brown Eyed Girl, and Behind Blue Eyes. (photos from jessesgirl.com)

The texture of these shadows vary a bit from pan to pan, but overall they are not too powdery. They go on sheer but you can build them up for more color. They blend well and wear well, especially when I wear them along with the Eye Shadow Primer. And again, at this price, you just can’t go wrong!!

Marcia’s having fun with Liquid Eyeliners ($6.99)

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliners

Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliners

I don’t leave the house without eyeliner. It’s a necessity to me and at $6.99 each I can have as many as I’d want. That’s where Jesse’s Girl comes into play. I was sent 4 shades and promptly went out and bought 1 more, that’s how much I like them.

I wear liquid eyeliner 90% of the time with gel liners and pencils making up the other 10%. I seem to have a knack for putting them on. Even with crinkly lids at times I get a smooth straight line with these Jesse’s Girl eyeliners.

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliners in Black, Dark Brown, Lilac, Blue Hawaii and Snow White

Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliners in Black, Dark Brown, Lilac, Blue Hawaii and Snow White

They are available in 6 shades – 2 Waterproof Eyeliners in Black and Dark Brown and 4 playful shades in Violet, Snow White,  Blue Hawaii, and Olive. Something for everyone and a color for every look.

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliners in Black, Dark Brown

Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliners in Black, Dark Brown

I love the point on these since they are thin yet sturdy. As long as I shake them up before use I get a steady line without skipping. And they last really well. One of my eyes tears up often at the end and they will fade there but not disappear.

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliners in Black and Dark Brown

Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliners in Black and Dark Brown

Believe it or not it’s really hard to find a dark brown liquid eyeliner that doesn’t pull red. Everyone makes black eyeliner but not everyone makes dark brown which is what I wear most of the time. Jesse’s Girl Dark Brown Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is one of the best I’ve found in the drugstore. Luckily the Rite Aid closest to my house has Jesse’s Girl on display so I had no trouble finding it in person.

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliners in Black, Dark Brown, Lilac (x2), Blue Hawaii and Snow White

Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliners in Black, Dark Brown, Lilac (x2), Blue Hawaii and Snow White

Black has an almost patent effect so it’s shiny, Dark Brown is exactly what it should be (rich and a true brown), Lilac is just the most fun shade as it’s a very pretty purple that adds a great touch, White is a true white and one you won’t find anywhere else at this price, and Blue Hawaii looks like a true ocean blue.

If you are a novice at applying liquid eyeliner these are a perfect place to start.
