Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner. New Nib

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.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner New TipIt 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 that

Smashbox Eye Wish Palette Review and Swatches

It is amazing to get unexpected beauty (and not only) presents, right? I was surprised to get the Smashbox palette from their holiday collection with this Dior palette and one more set from MAC’s Tarten Tale as a present for Christmas.

The first thing that I really like about this palette is the golden design, it looks great for holidays. Now this is not the most luxurious design but it looks nice anyway.

This is how the palette looks like inside. You get 12 eye shadows, 4 eye liners, Photo Finish Lid Primer, Mini Lash DNA Mascara and Smashbox’s step-by-step “Get-the-Look” cards.

I am sorry that several shades are used. I should have taken the photo before but I didn’t have a camera with me and I really wanted to try this palette.

I really love those “Get-the-look” cards, they are so useful to those who are not very experienced when it comes to makeup. They are also great when you have a lack of ideas and need to put  on your makeup as fast as possible or  want to try something new. There are 10 looks with a very easy to follow instructions. I’ve tried to create 2  looks so far (but want to try them all) and I was quite happy with the results.

And here are the swatches of the eye shadows and liners. And I really like the idea that

Rouge Bunny Rouge Quartz Eyeliner Devotion Ink in Tanzanite Essence Review and Swatches

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”.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Quartz Eyeliner Devotion Ink in Tanzanite Essence review and swatches 2

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 for

Illamasqua Precision Ink in Wisdom Review and Swatches

So here is the final review for the Illamasqua’s Generation Q makeup collection for AW 2012.

I have already reviewed the blusher in Allure and intense lip gloss in Boost.

And now it’s time for the Precision Ink in Wisdom (£17) which is described as antiqued gold.

I actually already did a detailed review of the brand’s Precision Inks so I will not repeat myself as you can read the review here. But I’ll just say that I really love these.  They are not hard to apply, even if you are not very experienced when it comes to liquid eye liner, have amazing pigmentation and colour pay off. Also the colours are original.

My favourite thing is that the liner stays glossy even when they are dry.  By glossy I mean that the shade doesn’t look dull or

ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner 01 Black Review and Swatches. Rave

Since I use eye liner almost on a daily basis, I have very high demands for it. I have been using Rouge Bunny Rouge for years, until they’ve changed the nib.  After considering different options: reading reviews and swatching in stores – I’ve decided to try ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner. 

ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner 01 Black Review and SwatchesI like this German brand a lot, their products are always high quality and  are not expensive.

And this liner is absolutely brilliant! I have been using it since February non-stop, it was even in my monthly favourites, and want to share my impression.  Easy to use, this is the exact nib I was looking for, I personally don’t like those ultra thin ones. The colour is ultra black and intense. The formula is great, it glides on like a dream without dragging the skin.
