My favourite beauty product over the holidays was definitely Illamasqua’s Ore pigment, a glittery bronze which is so-so gorgeous, I highly recommend. But, besides the shimmering eye shadow, I’ve re-discovered some of my festive-appropriate eye liners. And my top two were:
Rouge Bunny Rouge Quartz Eyeliner Devotion Ink in Tanzanite Essence (review and swatches)
Illamasqua Precision Ink in Wisdom (review and swatches)
They are just extremely beautiful. Both are easy to control, have a gorgeous sparkling effect and nice pigmentation. Wisdom is described as
Not only they launched the newest shade of the Raw Garden palette but also a Burgundy Spring set (€60).
So what is a part of this set?

Magnitude Mascara UBIQUITOUS in Ruby.
And it is
Since I am wearing an eye liner (almost) every single day, it has to be the best possible product on the market which meets all my expectations.
And Clarins Graphik Ink Eyeliner does.
I honestly cannot think of anything I did not like about this liner. It is ultra black, glossy, glides on like a dream, does not drag the skin. It also stayed on pretty well on me, I did not have any smudges during the the day.
A special shout out to the tip. It is the only type that I use on myself, and it allows both thin and thick application. While I love using thinner liners on others, I myself have hooded eyes so want my liner to be relatively thick without going over numerous times. It truly allows any type of lines.
Needless to say I’ve used it up completely.
I am a big fan and would definitely repurchase at some point. When I get bored of trying new ones. Currently I am using byTerry one, and it is also incredible.
The price is £21/$27, and considering that it will last you for a few months, I find it to be a good deal. Clarins is available from Selfridges,Harrods, Escentual.com, Nordstorm, Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.
Ladies (and gentlemen), let me introduce the best eye liner I have ever used. I love my black eye liners, and I am very picky about them, and ByTerry Ligne Blackstar just ticked all the boxes!
I have actually included it in the my top makeup products of 2018.
I’ve actually bough this eye liner without reading any reviews, as I was expecting exceptional quality from such a high end brand, and it did not disappoint. Everything about this liner is incredible.
The slick and beautiful metallic design, the very user-friendly nib and the formula. The shape of the tip is perfect, I have actually included a photo comparison with other products. It is so easy to achieve the line you wish, both thin and precise or fierce and bold!
The formula is
I’ve been having a thing for Givenchy makeup lately. And whenever I run out of a product, it is one of the first brands I look into.
My favourite BY TERRY Ligne Blackstar in So Black (here) dried out right before the wedding, which was very unexpected, and I was almost in a panic mode, to be honest. But I had to calm down and go shopping for a new eye liner (all the ones I had were not good enough).
It took a while to find the one I would like, as the photo above demonstrates. And Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-tip Eyeliner was the one.
I really loved the
