Bargain gel liner….that works! Wet 'n' Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner review

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

I live for black liner – pencil, liquid, gel –  whatever.  And the darker the better.

I’ve heard a lot of people talk about the Wet n’ Wild Mega Eye Crème Eyeliner.  So I picked it up at CVS and paid $3.99.  Great price!

So some of the things that I look for in a good gel liner:

  1. Colour –  I like a richly pigmented gel liner and if it is black, it needs to be super jet, sooty black.  No off-black, grey-black for me.
  2. Consistency – it should be creamy, glides easily regardless of the brush that I use.  And it should dry or set fairly quickly.
  3. Durability –  My gel liner has to be long lasting, make it true a workout without running too much.  Especially on my waterline.  And it can’t flake as it dries or makes it through its 6th hour of wear.
  4. Price –  Eventually all gel liners will dry out and crack.  Constantly opening that jar and exposing it to air, they become thickened.  So I won’t want to spend an exorbitant amount on a liner.

I picked up the liner in Black and it comes with a mini synthetic angled brush, which is actually not bad at all.  It’s easy to apply this liner with this brush. It’s firm and wide enough for a newbie eyeliner user to use.

Maybelline Falsies Flared! A review

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Maybelline has been adding to their Falsies line every few months.  I tried both the original and the Black Drama versions. I held off on getting the Falsies, ‘cuz, what else could they do? Eventually, the complusive beauty buyer in me won out.  I passed Go and collected my mascara in Blackest Black.

According to Maybelline, Falsies Flared is supposed to give you thick voluminous, flared out lashes, with no clumping.  The volume is supposed to come from the the Pro-Keratin formula and the patented spoon-shaped mascara wand gives the shape or flare.
