REVIEW| Urban *Decay liquid liner


L-R Gash, Lucky, Smog,Oil slick and Acid rain

Urban Decay liquid liners are highly pigmented, smudge-proof, long wearing but not 100% water 

proof in my opinion. The liners come with a fine point applicator but not all the applicators have a fine 

tip #annoying. The product dries quick but not "road runner fast" but you have to be quick if you want 

to adjust/ clean a mess because when it sets it SETS and you will need to soak a cotton pad with 

eye makeup remover to get it off. The finish of the liner is shiny (almost metallic) and its awesome for

people who wear makeup for a long time (9-10 hours wear).I have used the liners as an eyeshadow

base and it works great. The packaging is so cute but not portable like normal tube liners, so carrying 

these in a small purse might be a problem. 

I hope everyone is doing great?

REVIEW | Maybelline New York E Gel liner

If there is one make up product i'm constantly buying its gel liner (black gel liner).

I discovered the Maybelline eye studio gel liner by accident when I popped into superdrug for supplies.

I bought the liner with low expectations but after using the liner for about a week, I was very impressed.

I have used the gel liner in some of my tutorials and if you noticed, I use it for both top and bottom line.

The pigmentation of the gel liner is excellent. The liner does not melt or fade during the day. I usually

wear make up for about 8 hours and to be really honest it stays still ( No smudging). I have been wearing

the liner since I arrived Nigeria and honestly I still love it. The gel liner comes with a small bristle

brush which  i'm not a fan of because its a round top and I like to apply my liner with a pointy brush.

The finish of the liner is smooth and semi matte. I compared the liner with MAC's fluidline and I really

did not see the difference. Another thing I love about the liner is the packaging (feels vintage).

Maybelline eye studio gel liner comes in black, purple,brown and grey.

MAKE UP TIP ❀ To achieve that deep smokey eye, use your gel liner as a base for your eyeshadow.This makes the look intense and long lasting.

UPDATE

Hi everyone

I'm sure your wondering why my last blog post did not have a video tutorial, well the internet in Nigeria

is a tad slow but i'm working on it. At first I cried (No joke) when I was unable to upload a video onto

youtube. But as the saying goes "when life gives you lemons make lemonades". I'm not going to allow

this little internet hiccup ruin my blog consistency plans.

So until I find a "good" internet provider, I will just be posting pictures.

So far Nigeria has been challenging but i'm happy now + I met some of my new cousins (uber cute kids).

Anywoo I hope everyone is doing great and enjoying their weekend.
