My stash of…… Eyeliners!

REVAMPED!! I had revamped this post (if you have noticed)!!

What’s good will still be good and what’s not will remain as it is too!

20131103-235357.jpg

In this post, I’m gonna be sharing my collection of eyeliners with you!

Without further ado, let’s read on!

CLIO – Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel liner

20131103-230328.jpg

Type: Gel Pencil

What I like: Anything GEL is my soft spot!! Smooth application and very convenient! Who says I need to bring a sharpener around to sharp my eyeliner pencil? Who says sharpener is a waste of space in your makeup pouch? Well, CLIO proofs you wrong!

Capture

This waterproof gel liner comes with a built-in sharpener! Small and handy! Waste space? I don’t think so..

What I don’t like: The only downside I suppose is that the tip gets broken easily. You have to be gentle when sharpening this..

How it look: Color is pretty shimmery like it can make you eyes glow!

20131109-012137.jpg 20131109-012145.jpg

These few pics are my worn out look.. it was almost end of the day when i took these pic and you can see the eyeliner is still visible (though a little fade off).

Removing it: Totally easy-peasy!! Even makeup remover sheet can do a good job!

20131103-230409.jpg

How did I know about it: I get to know about CLIO from Bellabox! They were having some giveaway and I got lucky to bring home the dark blue gel liner (Bellabox giveaway) and later the Nude one from Vanity Trove!

Will I buy again: Yes! I’m a black eyeliner person! The last time I check out Watson’s for their eyeliner, they only has got black with gold shimmer. If guess if they have Gelpresso in black (just black), I will purchase them without hesitation!

K-Palette – Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h Waterproof 1 Day Tattoo

20131103-230427.jpg

Type: Liquid liner

What I like: This 1 Day Tattoo is really amazing! It’s not only waterproof, it’s smudgeproof! No matter how I try to rub it off, the eyeliner stays on like a stubborn cow! LOL.. Super good one for fine/precise line!!

20131103-230439.jpg

What I don’t like: Can’t afford any error..! One stroke off and that’s it. But there’s always a solution to every problem.. Use a pencil liner to draw the base color first (get the shape I want) then use my liquid eyeliner to go over it. By doing so, chances of my eyeliner getting out of shape is reduced greatly!

How it look: I haven’t try it on my eyes so will update this section when I do so!

Removing it: Although I mentioned that this liquid eyeliner is stubborn like a cow, you can still easily remove it with an oil-based makeup remover or any cleansing sheet.

20131103-230446.jpg

How did I know about it: Promoter?? I was at Japalang’s warehouse sale and the promoter was super promoting this!

Will I buy again: Hmm, maybe not. I’m not a liquid eyeliner person so it doesn’t really tempt me in getting a whole bunch home even if some superstar had endorsed it.

Secret Key – Secret Kiss Gel Pencil

20131103-230459.jpg 20131103-230505.jpg

Type: Gel Pencil

What I like: Like I mention, GEL liner is my soft spot! This is pretty much one of my favourite ever since KATE gel pencil was discontinued (check out my brief KATE post HERE & HERE).

What I don’t like: You need to sharpen this and it’s too short! I bought the full size eyeliner but doesn’t seems as good as this.. I don’t know maybe psychological effect..??

How it look: So here’s the 5 colors! Not all colors are of practical use to me actually… So far, I had tried the Shinee Pink (2nd from top), Choco Brown & Deep Black (last two).

This set of eyeliners are waterproof but I guess not smudge-proof. One rub and you see the color runs (or maybe I did not give it enough time to dry? I rub them immediately after I put down my last eyeliner pencil.. oops!)

20131103-230513.jpg 20131103-230520.jpg

Using my Secret Kiss Deep Black and Shinee Pink, this is my Monday look! I do not have double eyelid, The only reason I can think of now (to justify why it is showing in the pic) is that it must be due to TIRED EYES!

20131104-234943.jpg

The color is not as black as using a gel pot/liquidliner but it is definitely darker than using pencil. I used the black gel liner on my upper lid and the pink on my lower (just the inner) lid. With the aid of a mascara (in this makeup, I used Catrice waterproof mascara), my eyes looks brighter immediately! It’s a pity i wasn’t wearing my Misaki lens yesterday! Else it would be a GOOD EYE DAY~!

20131104-234915.jpg 20131104-234840.jpg

Below is my Choco Brown eyeliner~ It gives a softer look! So normally on days where I’m feeling a lil lazy, I’ll just put this on and a lil BB cream & I’m done.. at least I won’t look sleepy or look like I’m going around kill.. LOL!

20131106-114806.jpg 20131106-114814.jpg

Removing it: See after cleansing with my makeup remover sheet, the mark is still visible! Normally, I would use a gel based makeup remover to remove this! It’s only for this post, I used a makeup remover sheet.

20131103-230526.jpg

I’ve also screenshot some info from Secret Key (Qoo10 seller) about the product!

20131103-232246.jpg

How did I know about it: Qoo10! While doing window shopping I saw this and thought was pretty cool (& cheap) to try various color and there it goes into my cart! Sharing you with the link below!

20131103-232235.jpg

BTW, It’s waterproof.. not waterploof.. (LOL)

Color

Will I buy again: 80% Yes! If you like the set I had (Twinkle Edition No.1), sorry, I believe they are out of stock! But it’s ok, NEW colours are available (Twinkle Rose Edition No.2)!! I’m so tempted to get this!

20131103-232253.jpg

Maybelline – Lasting Drama Pen Gel Liner

20131103-230536.jpg

Type: Gen Pen

What I like: Intensively BLACK and opaque!! Waterproof and smudgeproof!! Not to forget it dry fast too!

What I don’t like: It’s kinda hard to control the gel ink and not very user friendly.. and dry too fast. LOL!

How it look: Nope I didn’t take any picture and decided to keep it till it expire and donate to the dustbin!

Removing it: Can’t remember!

How did I get to know: Window shopping kills! Hahahaha! Saw this in Watson’s and thought it’s pretty intense! so decided to give it a try…

Will I buy again: NO.

TONY MOLY

20131103-230536.jpg

Type: Gen bottle

What I like: This is my first gel eyeliner! Intensively BLACK and opaque tooo!! Like a pro when you have a bottle of gel eyeliner!! LOL~!

What I don’t like: Too troublesome to have to use a separate eyeliner brush!

How it look: I didn’t manage to picture of how it look on my eyes before it’s gone but this is really a good bottle if you do not have shaky hands!!

Looking at the below pic, what does it shows you? Maybelline indeed is a reputable brand huh? LOL! After applying the eyeliner, I tried using one finger to rub it (one stroke down) and result is clear! Maybe I didn’t give Tony Moly enough drying time?!

20131103-230802.jpg

Removing it: Easy peasy! Normal cleansing sheet/makeup remover can do a good job!

How did I get to know: Again, window shopping!

Will I buy again: Maybe?? Not that it’s no good.. BUT now that there’re gel pencil available, why still go for bottle one??? Not like I’m a pro~

Solone – Alice Fantasy Series Perfect Drawing Eyeliner: S$14.90

20140218-203455.jpg

Solone Black Cavier

Type: Gel Pencil

What I like: Do I still need to say this?? GEL of course~!! Alice Fantasy collection is cool because it can act as an eye shadow too! Not only that, its swivel design make things so easy for user (works similar like clio), it’s waterproof & smudgeproof!!

What I don’t like: I can’t find any fault.. probably not may colors to choose..?

How it look: The color I bought is #01 Black Cavier!!

20140218-203501.jpg 20140218-203510.jpg

It’s not solid black kinda tone but I love it with the little shimmer. Not too exaggerating yet not boring.

20140218-203515.jpg

Removing it: No challenge at all!

How did I get to know: Through a friend.. We were shopping at Plaza Singapore’s John Little and she recommended me this!

Will I buy again: Yes, I think it’s worth the value!

Solone – Gel Eyeliner: S$11.90

Solone Black

Type: Gel Pencil

What I like: The smooth application is awesome (smoother than Alice Fantasy)! No eyeliner that I purchase is not waterproof! I love gel and waterproof stuff!!! This eyeliner dries in quick 10 seconds! Hence there is no need to worry about smudging!!

What I don’t like: You really need a sharpener to sharpen this!! So not advance~

How it look: This is much darker than the fantasy collection..! Reminds me of the Tony Moly bottle gel liner..

20140218-203536.jpg

20140218-203547.jpg

Removing it: No trouble at all! Any remover can go a good job!

How did I get to know: Through a friend.. We were shopping at Plaza Singapore’s John Little and she recommended me this!

Will I buy again: Yes…! Who can resist gel pencil!?

Update as of 31 Oct:

I have using Holika Holika (bought online) for a period and I think I’m loving it.. Gimme some time and I shall share more about it later!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, to conclude it all, I usually purchase eyeliner based on ease of use! Waterproof or not is not an issue for me because non-waterproof eyeliner will nvr appear in my “to-buy list”. LOL.. If I have to give a recommendation based on what I’ve used today, It will be either Secret Kiss or CLIO Solone (It’s a pity I can’t find KATE Gel Pencil anymore). They are really easy to handle and no matter which level of eyeliner guru u are, Secret Kiss/CLIOSolone will never fails u! If you need something BOLD, I will recommend Tony Moly’s gel pot! It just take once to know if a product is good or not. Never try never know..

What’s next? Lip color or BB cream recommendation? Stay tune!

Note: Photos are not edited ok! So shy to show you my crumpled hand! (T_T)

Because it’s Magic..

20120525-104001.jpg

So excited to find this on my desk when i got home.. wonder wat VT has got for mi..

*drumroll*

TADAAA~ It’s the Egyptian Magic Cream Samples!!! WOW!!! (sort of happy to rec’d this because i have not rec’d my Jun Trove.. so this kinda substitude my June trove for a while~ definitely looking fwd to my June Trove!!)

20120525-101538.jpg

It comes with a small note telling you about this product.. i read some reviews online and starts to believe this thing works like magic!

My first thought was.. Wow.. Even superstars are using this product.. Kate Hudson, Madonna, Rachel Zoe.. But is this cream really safe?? how can one cream be so multi-purpose…!?!?! Hair.. Lips.. Face.. Body.. O_o Is it even from a trusted manufacturer!?!! Pardon my ignorance.. but i really have not heard about this cream before.. No ads no marketing.. Probably it’s more popular in the US but not here in Singapore..

20120525-104007.jpg

Had done a lil homework to find out more about Egyptian Magic. It is made from the purest, all-natural ingredients. These ingredients (olive oil, bees wax, bee pollen, bee propolis, honey, royal jelly) are widely believed to yield healthful effects on the skin and have been used for centuries to care for and nourish the skin.

Skin Care Moisturizer & Beauty Cream

“People often start using Egyptian Magic to solve a skin problem such as a rash or burn or scar, and then continue using it as a skin moisturizer and as an anti-wrinkle skin care cream. We find that using it twice a day does wonders for creating soft, smooth skin. And this, of course, is one of the key reasons Egyptian Magic is so popular among the fashion and movie industry as a beauty cream for face and skin care.”

Healing Burns & Treating Cuts and Scrapes

“Many of our customers keep an extra jar of Egyptian Magic in their first aid kit exclusively as a treatment for burns, scrapes, skin irritations and the like. Since Egyptian Magic will stay fresh indefinitely, you can store it for an extended period of time without concern for it losing effectiveness.”

Healing Scars

“Many of our customers have commented on Egyptian Magic’s “magical” ability to heal scars. Although we don’t recommended it for older scars, Egyptian Magic can indeed work wonders to heal relatively recent scars and skin discolorations. Egyptian Magic is popular among many plastic surgeons, who recommend it to their patients for accelerating the healing of plastic surgery scars.”

Natural Hair Conditioner

“For many of our customers, one of the most delightful discoveries is how beneficial Egyptian Magic can be as a moisturizing hair conditioner – either on a regular basis or as a conditioning hot pack. Egyptian Magic’s all-natural ingredients will restore luster to your hair and replenish its natural oils.”

Eczema & Psoriasis Relief

“We find that about one-third of our customers discover Egyptian Magic after looking to natural alternatives to commercial moisturizing creams as a treatment for eczema and psoriasis. Though different in nature, both of these conditions can often be treated by the twice-daily application of a moisturizing cream, according to several authorities. All-natural Egyptian Magic is an ideal choice.”

Skin Rash Cream

“Egyptian Magic is reported to work well in treating all kinds of rashes, including allergic reactions to drugs, chemicals, environmental irritants and insect bites; skin irritants, such as nickel or other metals; heat rash, irritation from clothing, rashes during pregnancy, and so on.”

I’m gona stock up more when the next promo comes again!!

Eyeliner..

It’s my all time favourite make up “equipement”.. Had started with a pencil.. and, before gel was known, a liquid liner.. and finally my first gel liner (not really first, but second.. u’ll know why!)

PENCIL: my very first eye pencil was those that requires a sharpener!! HOW antique~! but it was convenient and i love it.. and slowly.. i got upgraded to using KATE (by Kanebo) Refillable! how convenient again! HAHA! been using for quite some time until black color went out of stock island wide~ T_T and i got myself a brown refill which is the most bottom one you see in the above pic.. very light color.. dun really fancy it.. and that is when i have the thot of.. “Time for a change..” and before i can take action.. my mom returned home w BAD NEWS!

“你的 Kate discontinued!”

*drop jaw!!* sigh.. now i really need to find one…. and my mom was kind enuff to get mi a replacement pencil liner, again from Kate.. but this type, no refill..

LIQUID: as the word reads.. liquid.. its a liquid liner.. Well, this is the second liquid type i own.. this first one is… couldnt rmb anymore.. HA! but this is cool! This liner, i do not need to dap dap dap to let my brush filled w ink.. its now more like an auto liquid liner.. hahaha! but seriously.. i still cant really get a hand of liquid liner (any type)… it’s dun seems very… 顺手 to me! the brush dun seems to go my way when im rushing! and i always need the aid of a pencil liner bef i can actually apply a liquid liner.. how pathetic… T_T but again *touch wood* this Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner is still.. so far so good!

GEL: went online.. started running in and out of gmarket! u know when ur budget is running low but u know u need an eyeliner.. but again.. u know u shd stop spending!! GRR.. and in the end.. my hand took charge.. after a few clicks, Tony Moly gel eyeliner got delivered to my place… Seriously.. why TM out of so many brand you mite asked.. i had tried BobbiBrown bef.. it’s great.. i love it.. but my skin doesnt.. it turns out.. im allergic to BB.. T_T and had to gv away my BB gel liner.. so i continue looking around and found TM.. one thing i like abt it is that i do not need to get a seperate brush for my liner.. it comes together.. How convenient, yes, again… hahaha! i love convenient things!!!

This pic on the left is the TM Gel liner i applied on my right eye.. it’s almost as easy to apply as pencil.. or at least to me, it is like this.. and the color is as sharp as liquid liner.. ok my drawing skill may not be perfect but i still think it is nice!!! isnt it!?? HAHAHAHA!!

I think im already in love with gel liner!!! I’m gona get a GEL PENCIL soon too!! one thing to mention.. GEL liner is also smudge proof, or was it just TM?

Now can you guess which is which?? haha!!

(From left to right: TM Gel, Maybelline Liquid, Kate Pencil black/brown)

Now this pic is a “rub-experiment” after applying all four eyeliners… Now u see which is smudge-proof? Just one rub and everything is clear enuff… haha! oh man! i love GEL~

I shall post a “How to” soon when i have the time… 😀

Tony Moly

Yes!! Finally rec’d my TM pdts!! not tt i waited for a loooong time.. just tt im too eager to use it!! Had started using few items! ok.. let mi roughly go thru them from left to right!

5 bottle-like pack lying flat are facial masks.. Wild Ginseng (Contain saponin & jinsenoside, prevents acnes, soothing and protects against aging), Lemon (Vitamin C concentrate, provide hydration and nutrients), Milk (Moisturizing and conditioning, contain milk proteins, leave skin radiant and soft), Wine (Contain wine extracts, boost elasticity & vitality on fatigued skin) and Citron (Vitamin C from citron fruits, revitalised tired skin)! like all other mask, just leave on for 15-20 mins aft u had washed ur face! Then remove it and gently tap the remaining essence on your face for better absorption! (i suppose most sheet mask works this way?!)

Next on the list is TOMATOX brightening mask! Well, this is unlike normal mask.. For this, you will have to apply on dry face and gently massage in circular motion then rinse off after approximately 3-5mins! Was advised to rinse off using warm water..

Next to it is MY NEW FAVE! FRESH AQUA TEAR DROP GEL CREAM! This works almost the same like your moisturizer and its oil-free watery type! Needless for mi to tell u hw to use it ya?! Wahahahaa! Had started using this on the day i rec’d it (7 June)! & guess wat! i fall in love with it almost immediately! My mom had a feel of it (touched my face) and agree w mi! Smooth skin! can’t stop caressing my face!!  LOLX!! i know i shdnt!!! DIRTY hands!!! but i guess the effect mite varies.. cuz mom applied some on her face and… she ‘feedbacks’ that feels nothing but mild heat on her cheeks.. i guess my cheek are TOO DRY till this thing works on mi?? well.. u can gv it a try too if u hv dry U-zone like mi! OHOH!! it also helps to control excess sebum secretion.. 🙂 love it max!!

In front of my Aqua Tears is EGG PORE SET! i bought it seperately! White one (Black head out oil gel) @ Bugis J. and Beige one (Pore tightening / minimizing) @ Gmarket! still cant really see how effective it works but hv a frn feedback tt the pore minimizing one (Beige) is good!

Last but not least.. the little orange u see, its a TANGERINE WHITENING HAND CREAM~ do i need to explain more??? it already spell out its function! WHITENING!!! hahah!! kinda smell like the said-to-be tangerine scent! Y “said-to-be”?? cuz i feel that the scent is nearer to grapefruit scent!? hahaha!! looking fwd to see how effective this whitening cream can whiten mi! hahahaa!!

The rest that are not mention, they are all free gift (mask.. lotion.. cleanser.. minitint!)  from seller [SHOWROOM]! Quite a reliable one! Respond fast! Deliver fast! and… most importantly!! A very sincere seller!! Definitely recommend buyer to buy from [SHOWROOM]!! Visit gmarket and search for them.. i think they sell mostly beauty products! Good buy!
