A few of our favorite things – a blog hop giveaway that you’ll love to enter

Welcome to Beauty Info Zone. As part of our 12 Days of Christmas giveaways we’ve joined with a group of bloggers to do our first BLOG HOP. Each blog will have a different prize that they’ve chose to give away. I’ve chosen the COLOURPOP FAUNCY BOX which contains 3 creme gel eyeliners and 3 creme pencils. I bought one for myself as well so I could show you what you’ll be getting.

There are 3 pencils in the set:  Bustier – matte black, Soiree – charcoal with some shimmer, Frill – silver/lavender metallic. I really like the variety in the pencils. Both Soiree and Frill add a nice dimension to my collection. These apply easily and they are long lasting. While they don’t work well on me on my waterline, they do last when I use them as a lower lash eyeliner. Frill is described as a soft, icy lavender. It has a little bit of shimmer but it’s not too much. It’s unique to me. Soiree is a pencil that was missing in my collection since finding charcoal is tough. It’s described as a deep gunmetal with silver and gold shimmer. I don’t find the shimmer to be obvious but I don’t layer it which would probably make it show more.

The creme gel eyeliners are all black or charcoal. Bustier – matte black, Polar –  black with multi shimmer, and Soiree –  charcoal metallic, slight shimmer. The Creme Gel Eyeliners are a tad disappointing but that’s because I normally line top and bottom lash lines. While the Creme Gels last quite well and apply smoothly along my top lashline, they don’t last at all on my bottom lashline. They’ll crack on me after a few hours. That doesn’t make me not wear them though, I just use the pencil on the bottom and the creme gel on the top!

Polar is a black that’s not ultra black. It’s softened by multi-colored shimmer in it. I really like this a lot and wish it worked on my bottom lashline. Bustier is described as a deep blackened olive but on me it’s basically black. I don’t find that the olive shows up when used as an eyeliner. Soiree is my favorite. It works well with the pencil of the same name as they are both a gunmetal with silver and gold shimmer. I don’t find the shimmer to be glittery which is a plus in my book.
