The eyeliner case is in the shape of a coffin and has an awesome peacock design on the front of it. The top of the coffin box opens up, like this:
Cool, right? I absolutely love this product package design!! But what about the product itself? If I spend $22 on eyeliner, it better be worth it!
The color I am demonstrating here is Binge, a navy blue:
I used Ulta brand eyeshadows – I took a crease brush and blended Mystique in the crease. I took a regular eyeshadow sponge tip applicator and swiped Organza over the lid, also blended in the crease. With the sponge applicator, I lightly used Moonbeam across my brow and blended it with the top of the other two colors.
The eyeliner was easy to use. I rubbed the brush across the palette and was able to easily make a tight, lean line across my upper lash line. I also swept up and out at the outer corner. To do this, I tilted my head up slightly, cocked it, looked down and took the liner brush from the end of the lash line, up.
This may take some practice, as it did for me – especially to get both eyes to look the same and not have lines going too far up or too far down compared with the other eye.
Side story – Want to know why I have trouble doing this? Interesting story (or so I think!) that pertains to all of us…
Just like sometimes women’s breasts are asymmetrical, our eyes are too, no matter how slight. I learned, through “Identity: An Exhibit of You,” at the Franklin Institute in Philly, that your face is not symetrical. The exhibit had an interactive display, that had a camera, which took a picture of my face, then split it in two. It then flipped a copy of one side of my face to match it on the other side, so that in one picture my face was made up of the right side of my face, and the other the left. I would look very different if my face were symmetrical, so I’m very happy with my asymmetrical face!
Anyway! Ink For Eyes stayed put all day and came off easily with a Neutrogena Ultra-Soft Eye Makeup Remover Pads. The brush that comes with the eyeliner is a nice length for holding and applying, and I like the smudger at the other end.
Like I said, Ink for Eyes is $22. But right now, Urban Decay.com is having a Friends and Family sale – 30%!!! Use the code FNFF1 until August 20!
Ulta makeup is also on sale often, and the shadows are a good bargain in terms of quality and price. Right now, the shadows are regular price but with a purchase of $17.50 or more of Ulta cosmetics (for more, see the online sale ad!) you get a free gift (more makeup!).
Happy Hump Day, friends! Friday is almost upon us!!
