I missed these out of the Mega Haul Photo of yesterday (Click Here).
These are two more things I have bought in the month of December.
Collection 2000 Glam Crystals, Dazzling Gel Liner in Funky 3 £2.99
I have been amazed by this range, and plan on getting another one.
This goldy colour is more of a shimmer, than a sparkly glitter. The range is quite vast though and I love the dark electric blue and purple one. I have used this on a few occasions either on its own, or as an extra touch to a coloured eye. It got comments from the boy (yes the boy who thought mascara went on lips). It must be doing something right. I have also used it actually on the lid, rather than just to line. If you want an extra shot of shimmer then add two coats.
Why do I like it? Well the pigmentationis quite good. The solution isn't watery (unlike some cheap make-up brands). It is actually a gel. Hurrah (it is what it says on the packaging). Futhermore I have found that it doesnt budge! No smeared glittery shimmery mess after several hours wear! I had to soak it a bit to take it off, but I think that is more down to L'oreal eye make-up remover which I have nearly finished. (I'm not a fan and gave it a rubbish review- check back through my posts if you want to read it. I'm about to move on to Botantics...).
Prestige Lip Pencil L-206 Silk
A lovely pigmented pink nude colour. Slightly creamy but not too soft.
Stays quite well, and I quite like it! I cant remember how much it cost, but I picked it up from Boots- probably around £2 for 1.1g
I have swatched it below, and then swatched it with my Maybelline Galatic Mauve lipstick (another one of my loves!). I think they go ok (although the lipliner swatch is much thicker than I wear it, and the lipstick is reflecting the flash quite a bit... I always panic a bit with lipliner- nothing worse than a dark line showing up really badly!!
Two things that I would consider purchasing again, although I am more likely to use up the pencil!
Have you tried either? These might appear in my monthly faves post....
