Beauty Review: stila cosmetics smudge crayon waterproof eye color

Stila smudge crayon waterproof eye color caught my eye because it claims to be a primer, eyeshadow, and eye liner in one. The gel based formula stays for 6 hours that doesn’t crease or smudge. This formula has a slight pearl finish. You can barely see the shimmer. The product is very creamy and WATERPROOF!

As an eye liner if you like a fine point you won’t love it. The crayon is already a little thick for a liner. The color is so highly pigmented that there is no way anyone who isn’t a makeup artist could use this as an eye shadow and get it to blend out. If you want to try it out I recommend this for a smokey eye. It’s easy to draw right in the crease and blend out with your finger tip. Please use it sparingly because it is very creamy and a little goes a long way. This product is absolutely waterproof. It stays on and will not move. I did a whole load of dishes with it on my hand and it was still there. Use a small amount as a  primer to make your shadow last all day and night. However there are better eye shadow primers out there. This product is fun and it is good if you only have time to smudge a little color into your lash line before running out the door or if you want to wear a little makeup to the gym.

 

Beauty Review: Estee Lauder Sumptuous Two Tone Mascara

I was working in Nordstrom last week for an event called Beauty on the Go. I was near the Estee Lauder counter and I was looking at their runway looks from fashion week. Let me tell you. Their National Make up artist is quite talented. I saw some amazing warm tones I am going to try.

Estee Lauder has this new mascara that is double-sided. One with a full size Sumptuous Mascara brush and the other is a smaller brush just for the bottom lashes. I chose Bold Black and Brown. There are other options. Bold Black/Plum, Bold Black/Rich Blue. I chose the Bold Black/ Brown shade because I wanted a more natural look.

The point of the tw shades is that the Bold Black on the top lashes lift and separate . The bottom lash color is what makes your eye color pop. If you have Hazel/Green eyes try the Plum, if you have Brown eyes try the Blue, and for Blue eyes go with Brown.

I love this mascara. There was no smudging under my eyes. The mascara was so light and separated my lashes. It looked like I had false lashes on. I give this mascara five stars!
