Daniel Sandler Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliners. Review, Photos and Swatches

I am excited to show you these beautiful Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliners by Daniel Sandler.

First of all, I have to say that I really love the design, it looks very elegant and chic. These are the kind of eye pencils that are a pleasure to use.

The shades that I have are Black Velvet, Brown Velvet, Purple Velvet,  Grey Velvet and Green Velvet. There is only one more eye liner in this range which is called Blue Velvet.

I love how thin  the eye liners are and that you actually don’t need to sharpen them,  it’s a great plus if you ask me.

These are actually great to use on the upper inner rim of the eye (which I love doing)  since these liners are so thin. Daniel Sandler eye pencils are also great for the using  as an eye liner  if you are not confident with the liquid or gel one, as it allows you to create a thin (or thick if you want) line.

I also love using these liners to

Rave:Bourjois Effet Smoky Pencil Review and Swatches of All Shades

I’ve wanted to get some Bourjois eye liners for quite a long time and this week I’ve finally managed to do it! There were so many different types and colours that I just had to get 2 of them.

And one of them was Bourjois Effet Smoky Eye Pencil.

Here is what they say:

“Double-tipped eyeliner to smudge for a perfect every day smoky look! A smoky look available in 5 deep and intense shades achievable in 2 simple steps: 1) Outline the eye with the pencil 2) Smudge with the brush Its soft, easy-to-blend tip glides along the lashline for an intense outline in one stroke. Its ultra soft brush made of natural bristles perfectly smudges the formula. The result: a subtle but incredibly sexy smoky look in just 2 steps!”

There are 5 shades available:

(description of shades are mine obviosly)

  • 71 Smoked Brown – the most beautiful  dark chocolate brown with shimmer, it reminds me of my HG Benefit shadows only a bit darker.
  • 72 Dark Purple – gorgeous dark purple with shimmer, it looks amazing in the sunlight.
  • 73 Deep Green – Deep Teal would be a better name for this shade, it’s a deep teal with blue/green undertones, amazing when blended.
  • 74 Grey Shadow – quite a dark grey, the most shimmery shade out of all 5.
  • 75 Intense Black – intense matte black.

I have to say that I loved all the colours a lot but I had to calm down and pick one so I’ve got #73 in Deep Green because that’s the most unique shade out of all (in my opinion). But this doesn’t mean that I won’t get more shades 😉

So what are my thoughts about the product?
