All about eyes!

Today I am sharing my space with my lovely sister-in-law Kirsten who is a very talented make-up artist and knows a whole lot about beauty and I often turn to her for advice about products and looks.

Due to an abundance of products accumulating on my desk and a severe lack of time to trial, test, photograph and blog about everything, I thought I would ask Kirsten to give a few “eye” related products a whirl and let me know her feedback!

So without further ado let me hand over to her to give you the low down on a few new eye makeup products….

Revlon Brow Fantasy

Your eyebrows are there to frame the face, so I feel it is always important to define them. The Revlon Brow Fantasy is a pencil on the one side with a tinted brow gel on the other side. I’ve tried three different colours, Dark Blonde, Light Brown and Brunette. I love using the Dark Blonde on myself as I always prefer to fill my brows in with a colour that is slightly lighter than my actual brow so that it defines my brows without darkening them. The Revlon brow pencil adds a gentle hint of colour, without the colour being too harsh. I find that the brow gel sets the brows nicely and really keeps them in place. I have noticed that If there is excess gel on the brow, it dries quite white and flakey, so once I have combed one layer of gel through my brows, I like to gently dab it with my finger in areas where I feel I have applied too much.

Extensions in a Bottle by Lash M

This mascara is definitely more for the woman who has quite a bit of time on her hands in the morning as applying this mascara is quite a time consuming process. It requires three steps.

Step one: apply normal mascara.
Step two: apply the white fibre layer.
Step three: apply another layer of mascara.

When I applied the white fibre layer, I made sure to concentrate on the outer lashes to create a more elongated eye. I find that this mascara definitely lengthens your lashes slightly but because the color is dark grey I find that it looks very natural. I personally prefer to use one mascara that does everything in a few layers.

Color Strokes Liquid Eyeliner by Lash M

This liquid eyeliner can be used as and eyeliner and eyeshadow. When choosing a liquid liner, the brush plays a very important part for me as it can make or break the quality of the application of your line. I love the stiff tip and the sharp point of this product, it gives a very precise and defined line. The liner is very black, which looks very striking on eyes. It says long-wearing on the box and I can definitely say that after wearing this liner for many hours on end, that it has wonderful staying power. It also contains a peptide-infused formula which nourishes the skin.

This is such a great product when you’re wanting a little bit of something to add to your brows. It adds a slight shimmery golden tint which immediately lifts the look of your brows, your brows no longer look one dimensional and flat. I love that it gives my brows a bit of color with out me having to fill it in with a pencil or brow shader. Its quick, easy to use and the perfect product when you’re needing to define your brows on the go 😉 LOVE this product!
