Tag: best eye liner
Can you believe that it is MAY already? Where did 2015 go? Maybe that is because I am crazy busy these days that I don’t notice anything around me, who knows…
But back to April Beauty Favourites. I did not have that many makeup favourites, and did not want to mention the same products over, and over again – so here are 3 hero products that I have been using every single day when I did my makeup ( I was sick for a week in April which was horrible), and some new beauty loves…

The three makeup heroes I’ve mentioned are: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches), Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara (review), Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review). I haven’t been experimenting with eye makeup that much this month, and these are the products that just work. Eye brow gel to tint my eye brows and keep them in place, ultra black liner for that feline flick and mascara for thick and long lashes.
There are also three products that I’ve mentioned in my Spring Beauty Guide: Balance Me Radiance Rose Face Oil and Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Radiance Skin Serum for that
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 that
I want to show you one of my favourite eye liners – Rouge Bunny Rouge Rave Glaze Laquer Liner.
It is a jet black eyeliner with a precise tip which allows you to control the application. On me it lasts all day with smudging or fading. I also find it easy to apply but if you are not very confident with the liner – you may try using pencil or eye shadows first to ‘map’ the line and then use this liner.
Here is how the tip of the liner looks like
So here is the first Hourglass product that I am going to review. It is a Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner.
It is a “refined felt-tip precision eye liner designed to create striking, defined eyes without tug or skip.” This is a best selling products from the brand (along with their primer and foundation).
Now I do love my Illamasqua Precision Inks but these from Hourglass have a different applicator so it’s a different story.
What do I like about this product:
The best thing is that it’s easy to apply it! It has a precise and steady applicator so it’s unlikely that you will make a mess. I use mine to draw a very precise line as close to my eye lashes as I can to get that defined look. I usually just draw a very fine line.
It’s waterproof and
You already read the post about my favourite face products of 2010 and now it’s time for eye products! And, yes, stay tuned for the lip products part!
So let’s start!
My favourite mascara is Lancome Hypnose. I’ve tried so many mascaras (and have so many brand new waiting for me to try them) and although there are so many amazing products for me nothing beats up the Lancome Hypnose so far! Read review here.
Ellis Faas Lights
Not only they look absolutely gorgeous , but they also stay on for hours without creasing, fading or smudging. I am really impressed. Read review here.
Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadows
I just love these eye shadows and I’ve already written about them twice, they are just so good. Brilliant cream eye shadows. I know that several people bought them after reading my post (which makes me happy that people trust my reviews) and loved them, too. Read review here and here.
Yves Saint Laurent Ombres 5 Lumieres
These have been my favourite high-end eye shadows this year, the best quality ever: silky texture, nice pigmentation, beautiful shades. Read review here.
Illamasqua Precision Ink
Every time I’ve wanted an eye liner – I’ve reached for the Illamasqua’s. They are just great:
