I really need to change the title of this series – I can’t just do smoky eyes all the time, y’all would get really bored. There are only so many variations. I’ll have to give that some thought and come up with something clever.
So. We all know that cat eyes, or “the flick” are THE trend in makeup right now, and everyone is trying to perfect their technique. I have older eyes, so how I do it is a bit different than younger people, and I’ll do a step by step for you next week. This week, though, I want to talk about Sephora’s Colorful Waterproof Eyeliner 24 Hour Wear. I don’t know why, but I tend to shy away from store brands. No real reason for this, I guess when I’m walking around Ulta and Sephora I just have too much other stuff to look at, but this time I was lingering at the eyeliners trying to find something a little unusual, because I always use black. I needed to switch it up! So I chose #14 Animal Instinct, described as a “glitter kaki.”
The “glitter kaki” part was only on the website, not in the store, so I didn’t catch the glitter part, but when it put it on, it was surprisingly wearable even in the day. And when they say waterproof 24 hour, they MEAN it. It didn’t come off until I wiped it with some eye makeup remover, and I have oily lids -liquid eyeliner can just slide right off. I’m surprised most of them don’t end up on my face.
At any rate, the color was fun, and added a hint of sparkle that I wouldn’t normally have. The brush is easy to work with, and if you catch it before it dries, it’s easy to remove and reapply. I would definitely purchase this in all the colors. Especially since it’s only $12.
