I hope everyone had a great weekend and an amazing Father's Day! We had a great day yesterday, it's awesome that our used-to-be-baby is now old enough to bust out with a "Happy Fada's day Dada!!" for my husband. And, I found an affordable guitar for a gift for my husband too, which he has been happily learning on.
So, this post is for some eyeliner that I recently bought at Wal-mart (but is available pretty much everywhere makeup is sold), and I just want to make it clear that this is something I bought and tried for my own purposes but just want to share it with you!
I was really interested in buying some eyeliner that would make my eyes pop-and since I've never really cared for liquid eyeliner I decided to try a cream gel instead.
This is what I tried:
Shimmer Strips Custom Eye-enhancing Gel CreamLiner
(yes, that is the whole title-wtf is up with it being so long?)
Overall, I would give this product a 4 out of 5.
I found that it went on VERY easily, and the little brush that came with it gave me excellent control-this is actually the first time that I have lined my ENTIRE eye and really like it. (It usually just looks......weird.)
It was somehow cleaner and easier to use than a pencil, but with the wow factor that a liquid would have.
The only reason why I didn't give this product a 5 was because of the colors-I was hoping for a shimmery (like the title) and metallic POP of color, which just didn't happen. The colors were just dark, which is fine for liner, but not what I was hoping for.
I do have a small tip though, if you're going to use this or any cream or gel liner-apply a base of dark shadow first, which will help make it look more blended and natural, but mainly this will help the creamy texture actually stay on your eyes.
