Jordana Fabuliner: A Review

I’ve heard so much about the Jordana Fabuliners that I decided to pick one up and give it a try. I already had black liquid liners in my stash so I opted for the brown one. I would like to note that the Fabuliners are washable, not waterproof.

Review: Loreal Infallible 24 Hour Lacquer Liner

Good news, Loreal has a great new formula in their new gel eyeliner.  I picked up one of the new Loreal Infallible 24 hour Lacquer Liners to give it a test drive.  I had high expectations and was not disappointed.

This is what Loreal says about them:

“L’Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H for eye design that is simply sophisticated. 24 hours of flawless, fade-free color with a unique lacquered finish. Mistake-proof application plus the ability to customize your line with a smooth-gliding brush. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. ”

These gel liners do have some shine, but if you don’t like that you can always put a matte shadow of the same color over them. They last all day without budging or fading.  We will never know if they last 24 hours because I don’t leave my makeup on for 24 hours, not even in the interest of science.  LOL  It comes with a brush that is okay.  Its not my favorite, but I don’t hate it.  It doesn’t come to a fine tip, so its a little “different”.  Its not mistake proof, no gel eyeliner is.  I’m not sure why Loreal says that the liner is mistake proof.  Perhaps its because they never met me.  I made a mistake with the brush on my first attempt trying to figure out how best to use it.  The formula glides on smoothly and is very pigmented.  It did not bother my sensitive eyes.

I’ll pick these up in the future instead of the Mac Fluidlines and Bobbie Brown gel eyeliners because I believe they preform just as well.  Of course, if Mac or Bobbie Brown have a cool color I’ll pick that up too, but for the basic black, brown  bronze, etc, Loreal has my vote.

The Laquer Liner retails for $9.99 at Ulta. It comes with the eyeliner brush.  You can also get them at any drugstore, but the price may vary, as is the way with drugstore items.  Different drugstores charge different amounts.

So have you tried these?  I’d love to hear your view on them!

Bobbie Brown Spring 2012: Miami Coral Lipstick and Bare Sparkle Lipgloss

I stopped by the Bobbie Brown counter the other day and looked at the Spring line. I picked up a lipstick and a lipgloss. I’m in love with both of them!

Miami Coral lipstick is almost like a coral nude. Its not too bright, not too pale, just perfect. The Bare Sparkle lipgloss is a super pale peach with shimmer. Together they are fantastic, but they had other lipglosses that would go with Miami Coral too. Did you pick up anything from the Spring collection?
