Hello there! I am soo beyond excited to share my all-time favorite eyeliner/mascara with you! Let me break it down for you and give you a little background of my experience, beginning with eyeliner. There are tons of eyeliners out there – different brands, types, colors, etc. Do you prefer liquid eyeliner or pencil, maybe both? For years, I have used liquid eyeliners on top of my eyelids. Once in a while, I’ll use a pencil eyeliner but I tend to love the control and precision I get with liquid eyeliner. My eyelids tend to get oily depending on the weather, so using an eye primer is a necessity to avoid smudging. After 10+ years of wearing liquid eyeliner, I’ve found the one for me! MILANI EYE TECH EXTREME LIQUID EYELINER. If you’ve tried it, you know how great this product is. If not, go and buy it now! You will not regret it. It is extremely precise, with a felt tip brush. The precision is the most incredible part of this eyeliner. You can really mix up your look by simply having a thin or thicker eyeliner line. For a cat eye, it’s PERFECTION! As long as you take your time during application, you can and will achieve your desired look. An added bonus is the cost. I purchased by from a local drugstore for only $7! I have been using it nearly every day for the past month and it hasn’t dried out and the felt tip is still as precise at the first day of usage. I don’t use a eye primer with it, and surprisingly, it doesn’t smudge AT ALL! It stays on all day – 12+ hours without having touching it up.
Now time for mascara! Similar to my history with eyeliner, I have used lots of different mascaras throughout the year. For products such as eyeliners/mascaras which I use everyday, I don’t spend a fortune on them. To me, a higher cost doesn’t translate to better products. So what’s my favorite mascara? Loreal Telescopic Carbon Black! My eyelashes are pretty sad looking – short, not too much lash power. When I was about 12, I was looking in the mirror criticizing how long my lashes were. So as a 12 year old, how did I fix this ‘problem’? I grabbed a pair of scissors and trimmed them, ruining them for life. They never really grew back to their original look. On a day to day basis, I always wear mascara just to give them a little bit of life and oomph to them. I discovered Loreal Telescopic about a year ago and can’t get myself to try anything else. Why fix perfection? The bristle is extremely thin and doesn’t curve throughout. The accuracy of the bristles really bring forth all your lashes. Use it on both your top and bottom lashes! You will notice a huge difference in how bright and open your eyes will appear. It is super long lasting, but at the same time, so easy to take off at the end of the day. I use Cetaphil in the evening to wash off my makeup off, and this mascara doesn’t require excess rubbing or scrubbing. Purchase this from your local drugstore for less than $10 – it’s not only a great bargain but an amazing product!
I highly recommend both these products, and can’t wait to hear your feedback on my favorites!
