It's been quite a rainy week. So glad that I was able to stay dry because my work has a parking garage and I didn't even bother going out to deal with traffic and possibly hydroplaning, etc. I was able to leave early from work and was super excited to be home so I could wait for my package :)
Eyeliners are still something that I've been experimenting with because I haven't found the "perfect" one. Urban Decay's 24/7 do not work on me because they just end up transferring and smudging a few hours after initial application. I tried Wet n Wild's creme eyeliner and had fantastic results, and then came to realize that it was a pain to take off. It is really long-lasting. But....I wanted something that was long-lasting and easy to take off by the end of the day. I am really late on the whole Stila bandwagon. I always hear about popular products such as Kitten eyeshadow and their smudge pots. I went into Sephora last week and took a look at their smudge pots and they looked promising. I researched a bit and many people have these smudge pots as their holy grail of eyeliner. I found an out of line trio set with an eyeliner brush on BeautyCrunch. They have pretty amazing deals on makeup including a bunch of things from Stila. The trio normally sells for $32 but they are selling it for $12. Pretty awesome right? I decided to give it a go, even though the shipping is pretty expensive. I believe it was almost $7 for UPS ground shipping for one item. I guess my tip is to buy more than one thing in order to make up for the expensive shipping. Luckily, the shipping was pretty fast because it was only coming from Pasadena.
The trio comes in black, gray, and bronze. I decided to try it and they are so creamy! It was really easy to put onto my lash line and I love that there was no tugging involved. All the colors are great for everyday wear. I am pretty fair and find the black way too harsh on my eyes so I absolutely love the gray. It almost has this faint blue tint to it that makes it such a gorgeous color. The bronze will be great for an everyday look.
I've been wearing it for about 5 hours now and it has stayed on with minimal smudging since I didn't wear any eye primer. I figure it will last the entire day with a good eye primer on.
