On to my June 2014 Monthly Favorites and What the Hecks??!!!,

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!

Victoria’s Secret Limited Edition Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette in Fearless

I picked up the limited edition Victoria’s Secret Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette in Fearless. Its soooo pretty. Its a blue based palette. It has a pretty shimmering champagne color, a shimmering greyish taupey color, a matte teal color, a shimmering blue color and a blackened navy eyeliner.

I love all of the eyeshadows. They blend like a dream and they are gorgeous, if you like shimmering eyeshadows, that is. I like a little shimmer in my life so I’m pretty happy with them. Some people might prefer a matte highlighter shade, but I’m sure you have one in your collection that would work perfectly with this palette. The matte teal shade is a little fussy, but not too bad. All mattes seem to have some blendability issues and I don’t find this one to be any more troublesome to deal with than any other mattes in my collection.

I do not like the eyeliner. It’s consistency is somewhere between a dried out gel liner and a powder. That is the best way I know of to describe it. It is a dull black color and the staying power is very poor, even with a primer.

Even though the eyeliner is a dud, I like the other shades enough to make this palette worth the purchase. You can get it in the store or online at victoriassecret.com . It retails for $20.

Chanel Spring Collection 2012

I love Chanel, who doesn’t?  Anyway, I picked up some things from their Spring collection and I’m super excited to share them with you!  I got Chanel Eyeliner in Taupe #84, which is the most beautiful taupe eyeliner I’ve ever seen.  Its totally gorgeous and a must have!!!  I also picked up the Chanel Eyeshadow Quad in Eclosion #34.  Its such a pretty spring palette, although one shade is a little chalky and had some fallout.  The other four are a dream, I love them and do recommend the quad.  The last thing I picked up was Blush Horizon de Chanel # 4305.  Its so pretty in the pan.  It has stripes of peach and pink with a little white and berry mixed in.  When blended all together you get a gorgeous peachy pink.  You can go more pink or more peach if like, just from the way the colors are laid out in the pan.  Its a dream:)  All the items are shown and detailed in the video.  Enjoy!

Did you get anything from the Spring Collection?  Do tell!!!
