Hey guys! Just a quick blog to let you know that I have returned from Rite Aid and Physician’s Formula eye products and concealers are buy one get one FREE this week!!! You can’t beat that. I do love a true BOGO sale. You can get buy one get one 50% almost every week, but buy one get on free is truly worth celebrating. I picked up the 2 matte palettes that everyone is talking so much about. I’ll haul them in the next few days:) Are you going pick up any Physician’s Formula? Let me know what you get!!
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!
I purchased these items and was not compensated for this review. As always, these are my own, honest opinions.
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.
I purchased all of these items myself and was not paid to review or mention them.
OMG, I’m loving Stila’s new Smudge Crayons. They released them with their Spring 2012 collection. I picked up one in Smoke, just to give it a try. After I gave it a go, I went back and got Kitten. I’m seriously considering picking up the rose colored one too. They do tug a little when you apply them on your eyelid straight from the stick, but you can rub them on your finger and smooth them on. I just apply it straight from the crayon, the tugging in not too bothersome to me. They act as a good base and they also look great by themselves. I use Smoke as a liner too. They have a wide range of colors. I think they are good stuff! Have you tried them? If so, what colors did you get???? Did you like them? Give me details!!:)
