Blue Eye Liners Swatches: From Dark to Pastel Shades

Blue eye liner can be tricky and I’ve been avoiding blue shades for quite a long time. But, hey, it’s only makeup, you can always remove it!  And I love love LOVE trying different colours and shades on my myself and others.

So I’ve picked 5  different shades of blue eye liners  from my collection. They are totally different and I love and wear all of them.

The shades that I’ve picked are:

First of all, here is a preview of Givenchy’s Rouge A Porter which comes in a chic thin leather tube and is a glossy sister of my favourite Le Rouge.  Available for £25 from Harrods.

Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Liners Jackpot Set. Was it Worth Getting it?

I have to say that it was so hard to find it. I was misinformed that this set won’t be available in the UK and EU.
