FOUR BEAUTY PICKS FOR A SERIOUS GLOW UP
Today’s beauty reviews are all about smuge-proof long wearing eye products and our favorite highlighter. Whether you are looking for something to make it through a hectic workday that won’t quit, a simple daytime liner, or dramatic eyes we’ve got you covered.
Milk Makeup Ubame Mascara
The first thing I thought when I opened this mascara was the wand looked like something from Dr. Suess. It has multiple balls along the the wand to give you volume. And boy does it give your lashes volume. I already have pretty long and voluminous lashes so one coat is all that I need to get my 1960’s Twiggy on. A friend of mine used this product who has very thin lashes and said it was the best she’s ever used for volume and length. I love Milk Makeup and they have seemed to pop up everywhere in the last 6 months. This mascara is made with Saphire dust (what gives it’s amazingly rich color), Ubame Oak Charcoal and is cruelty free to boot. Also, this is the first mascara I’ve ever used in a squeeze bottle. So you really get what you paid for because you can use all of it up. To apply, I sweep the wand horizontal up and down a few times and then use the tip of the wand vertically to extend lashes on the outer edges of the eye. It doesn’t flake, bleed, and stays all day long.
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer
I won’t delve into this too much here because I am posting an extensive review of this highlighter later. What I can say is that this with out a doubt is my favorite product I’ve ever used. Yes, it needs a bold and special color because it is that wonderful. It lasts all day and gives a subtle and natural highlight that won’t quit. Even,Refinery 29 calls it the highlighter Super Models swear by. More to follow.
Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner
A favorite of Alexa Chung and the easiest liner I’ve ever applied this will always be in my beauty arsenal (if its not sold out). This liquid liner is smooth in application, vibrate in color, long wearing, and won’t quit. I use this for my going out or party look only because it is very dramatic. The width of the pen makes it easy for anyone even with no liquid liner experience to apply. To apply I dot along the edges of my lid and then connect with the tip of the pen. I angle it to the side for a quick swoop and cat eye at the end. Take your time and it will look amazing.
Seriously this eyeliner is everywhere!
Club Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner
I first received this as a Birchbox Sample and ended buying it. I loved the color. It is a black liner with a gold tint. It looks so pretty when it is applied. This is a K beauty staple and one of the top selling K beauty items out there. It looks like a pencil but has a smooth gel texture during application. Tip for this product and important to know is that once it is on, thats it. Meaning there is little room for error with this pencil. It will not come off unless you scrub with makeup remover. I use this when I feel like having a little bit of liner during the day or know I need something that is long lasting (12 hours).
