3 Awesome Black Eyeliners!

This Summer I’ve been wearing black eyeliner a little more to define my eyes and I’ve been rockin’ these high end 3 brands. These are all samples I have gotten in my beauty boxes this past year! I have so many sample eyeliners I may never have to buy one again.

Smashbox Always Sharp Liner – This soft waterproof eyeliner comes in 8 colors and I love that it’s a twist up. It’s very smooth and looks great on my “older” eyes. Price: $21

Clinique Skinny Stick in Shimmering Black – This is the thinnest eyeliner I have ever seen but it works great on my waterline. It is also Ophthalmologist Tested, Allergy Tested. and 100% Fragrance Free. On sale for $17

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper – This black liquid liner is waterproof and transfer-resistant. I love the bold look and it’s so easy to apply. It also comes in Mad Max Brown, Price: $20

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Review

I received a sample of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in my June Sephora Play! Box in the K-Dub shade which is a bold fuchsia.

What’s to love?

So I’m going to say WOW about this liquid lipstick. I love Kat Von D and I really need to do a haul of her stuff. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick comes in 20 shades that range from subtle (Noble petal pink nude) to wild (Dreamer neon turquoise) and I am loving this formula.

I have issues with liquid lipsticks that dry out on my lips but this one worked fine and gave me a nice creamy texture that looked really pretty on me. It also had decent staying power (expect for greasy food) and the pigmentation is amazing, I had no patchy spots.

I got quite a few compliments wearing this the K-Dub shade and I also love that it has a sugary scent and taste.

Retail price: $20

The Kat Von D Saint + Sinner Palette Is Coming!

I was cruising around the internet looking for the new eyeshadow palettes coming in 2017 and I came across a preview for the Kat Von D Saint + Sinner Palette which is definitely on my list of must-have palettes.

I love using artsy eye palettes, but I love collecting them even more. I’m not to into collecting kitsch but eye palettes are another story. The palette is supposed to have an angelic “saint” side and a more bold “sinner” side. The colors from the preview look amazing and I’m a huge fan of the Kat Von D eyeshadows so this should be a treat.

There is no release date yet for the palette but the Kat Von D Saint + Sinner perfume is supposed to land in July 2017.

L’Oreal Voluminous Feline Noir Mascara Review

I got this full-sized L’Oreal Voluminous Feline Noir Mascara in my Winter Beautycon Box and it’s a really, really nice product! Ooo la la! OK, I really don’t know French, but I do know Feline Noir means black cat!

What’s to love?

The color of this mascara is Ferocious Black (hence the black cat title) and the tube has a leopard print design which I think is so unique! It reminds me a bit of the 80’s (maybe the Duran Duran Hungry Like The Wolf video?) Anyway I love how it looks in my make-up case.

The product itself is nice too. It feels more like a high end mascara than a drug store brand. The wand is simple and functional. Sometimes I hate when mascaras go overboard with a crazy wand shape when all I really want is a basis wand!

I was easily able to apply the Voluminous Feline Noir and I didn’t get any clumping. It also added volume and length to my lashes. I do recommend only using one coat though, two coats looked too thick on me.

I also found the staying power to be great! Overall I am super impressed with this formula.

Price: $8.99

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Quads Review

Today I tested out the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Quads in Rust. You can also get Plum, Sage and Smoke. These matte triple milled shadows are just superb for women over 40 (like me).

What’s hot about the Kat Von D Shade + Light Rust palette.

First up…I am crazy in love with the case. It reminds me of something out of Harry Potter. Hermione would definitely wear this eyeshadow. I love the font and the raised lettering.

Now for the product! These shadows go on more like a cream, the powder is extremely fine and easy to work with. Each quad palette comes with a base, define, contour and highlight in that order.

You do get a short glossy tips card inside with instructions on how to create 4 different looks.

I created a more dramatic look using the define brown color on my lid and then the orange contour and beige highlight near my brow. I also used black Clinique mascara and some smoke Clinique eyeliner. I have hazel eyes and blonde hair.

The colors blend really nicely and are nice and bold.

I was really pleased with the over-all look and quality. I can easily wear these colors for day or evening looks. You could also wear any of the colors as a stand-alone product for a casual look.

The product is also long lasting and removes easily with a moist make-up removal cloth.

The only thing I’d love to see in the case is an application brush.
