I've always been pretty simple with my makeup, wearing mostly nude shades and the odd fun eye shadows and a good layer of mascara but recently I was feeling like I needed a little something new. So I went out and got three news things: Anabelle liquid eyeliner, Covergirl lip stain and Covergirl smoky eyeshadow stick in silver/grey.
1.Anabelle liquid eyeliner
I used liquid eyeliner once back in the day and it turned out terribly, I couldn't get it to go on thing enough and I just looked like a racoon in the end. So this time I was determined to do it right. I went on a hunt for a video tutorial to show me how to do it properly and I found a great one. (See below) I was finally succesfull and the eyeliner turned out great.
2. Covergirl Outlast lipstain
stick is my new favourite thing. It's like a marker only for your lips. It allows you to draw on your lips and touch up without the stickiness of lipstick. I also love how deep the colour is, and once I had it on all I did was throw on a layer of glossy lip chap and it looked perfect and not too over the top. I also only had to reapply a layer of lipgloss over it a couple of times in the evening to make it look nice again, because the pigment stayed on, even after eating and drinking. One thing to note , I bought the Wild Berry Pink colour and it is really a vibrant amazing red, so don't be fooled by the name. Two thumbs up!
3. Covergirl Smoky eyeshadow blast
So the idea of this stick is to give you the tools to do a smoky eyeshadow quickly and without using other brushes etc. I found that the idea is good but the product is a failure. I bought the silver/grey and purple stick and it all blends together too fast, is a bit tacky/sticky and just felt heavy on my eyes. I will probably keep it and use the base colour as a primer once in a while but I will stick to my mac powders for smoky eyes from now on. Save your money on this one and spend it on the lipstain
