Being a fan of Max Factor I was excited at the opportunity to try their new Excess Intensity Longwear Liners. After using them for over a month now, I am happy to share my opinion, and show you the swatches of all six shades.
They all come in a nice black tube packaging, and a lid is actually matching the shade of the pencil, which is very handy. I also like the fact that you don’t need to sharpen these, you just need to twist to get more product out.
As you can see from the photo, the liner are relatively slim, so you can get a precise line, if you wish.
I personally really loved the formula, the pencils are soft and smooth, they don’t drag the skin and glide on easily. The lasting power is also pretty impressive, but I don’t have oily lids, and the the products usually do stay on me rather well in general.
Besides the staying power, I love the colours, the products live up to their name - Excess Intensity, the shades are very pigmented and lookRead More
Regular readers know my big love for Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Raven Glaze, a glossy ultra black eye liner. Yes, it is not matte or shiny, it is like a black gloss!
I was actually intrigued when I found out that they re-vamped it because I couldn’t imagine how it could be even better. I actually have a sample of the new version, so here is what’s the deal.
It is all about the nib! Now it is very thin and precise, you can easily create even the most delicate line, fill the gaps between the lashes or create a sharp cat eye. And, of course, you can make the line thicker, if you wish.
But please keep in mind thatRead More
I have already reviewed Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Quartz Eyeliner in Amethyst Essence but this week the brand actually launched a brand new shade – Tanzanite Essence.
And, oh my goodness, it is gorgeous! It is a mid-toned blue with silver shimmer. But RBR describe it in a more sophisticated way, as they do everything: “toned down medium blue, ablaze with opalescent sparkle”.
As I have already mentioned, this is a beautiful colour, and I loved wearing it on my (brown) eyes today. Although it is shimmery, it doesn’t look over the top for a day makeup. You can also build up the intensity and the thickness of the line, which is shown on the swatches below.
Also, as mentioned in the previous review, in my opinion, these eye liners are just perfect forRead More
How beautiful is this BECCA Ultimate Creme Eyeliner in Belle Epoque? It is a gorgeous shimmering plum which comes in a cute signature BECCA packaging.
The formula is amazing, it is very creamy and applies smoothly, you can get a subtle line or build up the intensity, plus it’s very easy to use it on a waterline. I’d say it is pretty foolproof! Even if you mess up a bit, this shade is more forgiving than matte black, so may be a nice one to start with if you a beginner when it comes to gel/cream eye liners.
Moreover, it can be used as aRead More
I was given two products from the upcoming Clarins Autumn collection to show you and I would like to start with the Crayon Khol as it is a brand new product.
There are eight shades and I have 05 Intense Violet.
I have been wearing it every day for the past week and am ready to share my impression.
In terms of the formula – it is a soft and smooth pencil which glides on the skin without dragging or pulling it. As for the pigmentation – it is great, as well. You get a nice colour pay-off and deep shade with one swipe.
But what about the staying power?
As you would imagine,Read More
