Rimmel London GLAM'EYES Professional Liquid Liner ~ review,picture,swatch & EOTD

Hello girls...Today I'm reviewing "Rimmel London Glameyes professional liquid liner" This liner is really affordable and nice for daily use. It is not a waterproof eyeliner so I wasn't expecting much from this product. But I really like the brush and pigmentation of this liner,the brush is long enough to create precise line and pigmentation is just awesome. It doesn't fade off. This liner is not waterproof so you can easily washed off when you rinse your face. I have pretty sensitive skin and this liner irritate my eyes a bit.

Packaging...
It comes in a black plastic bottle with a conical shaped brush lid.

Price... $6.29 for 0.12 oz

Tuesday Tip # 4 how to prevent waterline smudging

Hello girls... Today I'll be showing you how to prevent waterline smudging. I love applying kohl on my waterlines but the only problem is it smudge after couple of minutes. I know there are lots of products in the market with terms "smudge proof" and waterproof" but they are good only for couple of hours and again same pain...same panda eyes.
When I was in India I was talking to my sister and cousin about this "smudge thing" and my nani (grandmother) told me use surma (powder kajal) on top of kajal/kohl and I was...nani you too and then she told me all the beauty stories...that was fun. So I got this idea from my grandmother and believe me girls it is big hit for me.

Things you need...

  • a kajal/kohl of your choice
  • angled brush
  • powder black eyeshadow 




Step 1.
apply kohl on your water line 

Step 2.
dab your brush in black eyeshadow and pat it gently on your water line and you are done.






It was fine up to 6-7 hours and after that you can see a bit fading in picture below(after 8 hours) specially in outer corner but still...it's not that bad.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black ~ Review,Picture and Swatch

Hello girls...Today I'm reviewing my HG eyeliner(Stilla stay all day waterproof liquid eyeliner) I have tried many different eyeliners in past 4 years but this one is the best,it never smudge and flake off and another best thing is it dries quickly(almost immediately)

 It consistently delivers a uniform line with very sharp definition,it doesn't skip or drag on my eyelids. It is perfect for cat eyes/wing eyes. The felt tip also allows you to create a thin or thick line depending on how you hold the pen.


This liner comes in a slim pen form. The felt tip is firm and makes the nicest fine line. The pen form is so much better than other liquid products that requires you to dip a brush into the bottle.

Ingredients...

The felt tip
The felt tip of this liner is really nice,you can draw as thin or as thick line you want. The thin tip of this liner makes the application supper easy,especially in the inner corner of eyes.



Swatch
The color is opaque and one stroke gives you very black line and if you apply one more line on previous line you will get perfect intense black color. It has very nice dark glossy finish. Overall it is perfect for pop up your eyes.


It's Waterproof



I have oily eyelids so usually many eyeliner specially pencil liners starts to slide off on my face and go into the inner corners of my eyes as the day goes on but this eyeliner doesn't smudge the entire day. Check the picture below I have applied it around 7:30 in morning and it was perfect till 6:30pm(without any touch up)


Price...
            $20 for 0.016 oz
