Milani Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Liner

Milani! Why am I just recently trying your liquid liner? Have you heard of it people? Have you tried it? As I’ve mentioned in a previous post I’m a huge fan of the cat eye look, and this drug store brand = perfect for it. I really like felt tip liners and this one is working out to be amazing! Since it is a felt tip liner you can work it to do perfect angles and achieve the look you want.

It retails on the website for $7.49, though I’m sure it varies from location to location. Milani’s blackest black really comes out black not a gray like other felt pens I’ve used coughjosiemarancough. I don’t like how some pens fade out upon application and this one works as it should!

Another thing I like about this product is that it has a grip from where to hold so it doesn’t slip between the fingers. It is also easy to hold as it isn’t a short item; it containes 0.03 fl. oz , is recyclable and made in Germany.

For those of you who don’t know me I love pinup style and pinup art and pinup anything. I shop at vintage stores, vintage section of etsy, and vintage repro online/stores. Well The Body Bartender was story starts with a love for the style and the art that is pinups circa 1940-50, which immediately caught my attention. The other side of Heather’s story is directly related to a love for awesome beauty product packaging, wherein she realized there was no niche product for those of us girls who have tattoos…tadaah!

As I said Heather came with gifts. We had an option of three products and I went with Tattoo Protection. I’ve had my tattoos for years now, but the one on my foot is always extra dry. I have very dry skin and ever since I got my tattoo my skin on my foot dries even easier and is more sensitive. So I jumped at the chance to try this product. It is basically an organic sun protection cream that doesn’t have a thick film and whose consistency moisturizes the skin .when it is healing and thereafter. Next time I can get a tattoo I’m going to try the Tattoo Polish.

Pink Cashmere Creme Blush and the glosses: Confessed & Revealed

How cool are the tubes and applicators. Simple but high quality.

As you recall I love Youngblood’s creme blushes so now having a new one to use makes me a happy camper. Now I have both a shimmery and matte blush of theirs. What I love about cream blush is that it’s easy to apply and doesn’t disappear as the day moves forward. If you’ve never tried cream blush, you’re missing out and I recommend you go online or to one of the stores that sells this brand and get yourself some! These retail for $27 and are .21 oz; a looot of product as you can see by the picture.

Glosses are typically not my thing, but I couldn’t resist such nice sheer colors and now want more! The lip gels retail for $25.50 and are .25 oz – also a lot of product in these tubes!

Things to find in the blush are Vitamin C and E, Allantoin and Jojoba Esters. The Lip Gels include Momordica Grosvenorii Fruit Extract (Longevity Fruit), Jojoba Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil.

The new products are being made available June 1st on their website, NewBeauty at Fred Segal Santa Monica,  Henri Bendel New York and certain spas.

NYX HD Concealer vs. Loreal Studio Secrets Anti Dull Skin Primer

Concealer? or Primer?

As some of you know I have a constant quest to find a good concealer or some sort of combo for my dark circles. If it isn’t allergies it’s because I’m tired with the addition of hereditary dark circles. In a previous post I’ve mentioned how the color wheel is your friend in these situations, so what I’ve done is gone out and purchased two orangy products to blend with my current MUFE concealer.

As you see in this picture, both colors make my eye look quite orange and strange. Probably not what you want from a concealer as usually you want it to even out with your skin. Right?

Loreal – NYX topped off with MUFE Lift Concealer #2

Here you see the orange has faded and my eyes start to look evened out some.

While in this last picture you can still tell I have dark circles, it is not nearly as bad as without anything on. The skin tone looks far better than without the products applied.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did one work better than the other?
