It's my favorite kind of make up everrrr! I decided that since I hinted towards the eyeliner I was wearing in yesterday's post, I'd talk about it today!
So here's what I've got to review for you ladies today:
|Wearable Browns Eye Shadows|
|The Retro Lounge Powder Eyeliner|
I'm actually going to do a comparison of the two liners that I picked up that day, the Retro (seen above) and a pencil called Sage that was featured in the Girlfriend collection (seen in my haul post).
I'll just post all the pictures first and then discuss 'em:
|Wearable Light Brown, Wearable Medium Brown, Wearable Dark Brown|
|Artsy perspective...oooh. These shadows are all used in the pics below (of my eyes...duh)|
|Up close of the Retro powder eyeliner + brush|
My favorite Bare Minerals eyeliner is a powder eyeliner, so I had high hopes for this one! Not to mention it came with a brush, albeit much wider than the normal liner brush I use. It, however, was much darker than the liner color I usually use and it was pretty much a jet black:
|Retro gave a pretty smooth line...it's a little shaky though 'cause I wasn't used to using the giant applicator brush!|
|Up close of the Sage eyeliner pencil...you can see (and probably tell by the name) it's a brownish-green color!|
|Dark green/gold = pretty. It would look better with a gold or bronze shadow|
I think I'm quite terrible at applying and blending eyeshadow. I used the wearable light brown above my lids and under my brows, wearable medium brown on the lids and wearable dark brown on the crease. Here's a few more pics of my eyes, open...which covers up the fact that I suck at applying makeup lol:
Overall I'm pretty satisfied with all my purchases! I really like the three shadow colors, I just need to work on blending a little better. I don't wear too much vibrant-colored make-up so these neutral browns are just up my alley!
In terms of color and ease, I loved the Sage eyeliner pencil. It's so much faster just to swipe on a pencil! I do think, though, that this would be better suited for a colored shadow! In this case, I did like how Retro looked a little better. It ended up being a much cleaner line which suited the neutral colored shadows quite nice.
Also, if you're wondering, the mascara I have on is the Maybelline Lots of Lashes mascara featured in yesterday's post (and my giveaway).
Hope you all are well!
