Super Super Super Stay! Solone Eyeshadow and Eyeliner ‘Smoody’ Pencil Review!


Solone is a Taiwanese make up brand from…Taiwan, silly, and they make a rather popular eyeliner pencil which they call the “Solone Gel Line Smoody Pencil”.  This pencil is waterproof, it can be blended and used as an eyeshadow or liner. They also happen to be quite inexpensive so I picked up three from eBay for around £14 including shipping which is about the price of one high end eyeliner (ie. MAC, Urban Decay etc.): […]

The Prettiest Purple Liner: By Terry Ligne Blackstar Eyeliner Precision Tattoo in 04 Violet Excess


By Terry is one of those brands that are super super luxe – every time I get something from the brand it feels like a naughty treat. I first spotted this purple liner on someone – it was just stunning, the hue of purple is spot on.  Not to red so it looks bruise-y, but not so blue that it looks…blue. The eyeliner was this – Ligne Blackstar Intense Liquid Eyeliner Precise Tattoo – a […]

Light and Long Lasting? Estee Lauder Doublewear Light Foundation Review

Review: Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick

I have tried a few of the long lasting style lip products in the past – Max Factor’s, Lip Ink, L’oreal. My experiences with them haven’t been wonderful, mainly because they dry my lips out big time. I wanted to see if Revlon’s new Color (American spelling!) Stay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick would do better. Up to 12 hours of color apparently! They say: * Food-proof lipcolor with a built-in, ultra-conditioning topcoat * One-step application- No […]

Review: Too Faced Lock Down Ultimate Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow


A good, creaseless, pigmented cream shadow is hard to find – for sure. The best creaseless, all day iron clad ones I can think of usually a little sheer (Jill Stuart Eye Jellies and Shiseido Hydro Power for example). Then there are the very pigmented ones that don’t stay put (Illamasqua creases, Nars creases). So when I saw Too Faced’s Lock Down cream eyeshadows I was excited. Apparently these are infused with Shadow Insurance, one […]
