Day 8: Favourite Eyeliner

Hi all!

There is a raging thunderstorm going on outside and I am here quivering, as I am writing this post. It is crazy how we can go from a snowstorm one week to a thunderstorm the next! (Again, gotta love Canadian weather).

Anyways, I am on day 8 of my faves and I was on such a good roll with my posting, but I just did not have the energy to post yesterday. I was feeling very tired and sick. I ate something earlier in the day and it didn’t set well with my stomach, so it was early to bed for me.

I was also very excited to receive a package all the way from Atlanta that had contents of the contest I won from Kasey on her blog Spinning Gold.Ā They are all Pixi products which I am obsessed with, so thank you again! I am so happy that I won your contest! And if you haven’t already, go follow her blog šŸ™‚

Now on to Day 8!

When it comes to eyeliner, I always wear it on my waterline. I like the dramatic look it gives me and I personally feel more put together than others. I can’t live without my eyeliner and I have honestly had bad days when I have lost one or broke one, so now I always have a backup.

I have two favourites and this is due to the fact that they are similar and I could honestly say they are the same product just a different brand. The first one isĀ Maybelline’s UnstoppableĀ and the second one isĀ L’Oreal Infallible.Ā They both have a very long lasting power, as I can go a long day without having it come off.

Maybelline Unstoppable

This eyeliner comes in three different shades,Ā Onyx, Pewter and Espresso.Ā I believe they retail for $10 each. Maybelline states that it has a smudge proof, stay put, waterproof formula. I need the waterproof formula in all of my eyeliners or there would just be no point in me wearing eyeliner! I always buy the shade Onyx as it is the darkest. I love how smooth and creamy it is, which makes it very easy for me to apply. As it is waterproof, I do have a hard time taking it off, but that just means it works!

L’Oreal Infallible

This eyeliner comes in three different shades as well,Ā Black Brown, Black and Carbon Black.Ā It retails for $11.99. This eyeliner is stated to last 16 hours with it being smudge proof and waterproof. I love how smooth it is to apply and how long lasting it is for me. Like I said above, I truly believe both the Infallible and Unstoppable are the same formula, as I love them both to much.

Obviously, as the day goes on and depending how much of a sweat I work up, it will smudge at the crease, but it is so easy to touch up. I never find it coming off completely. These are my two favourite go to drugstore eyeliners, as they work the best and I have been using them for the longest time.

This is the Infallible and I don’t have a swatch of Maybelline’s, as I am out of it. It’s really dark, as I got it in black and I love how smooth it is to apply.

I would like to mention that a runner up is Stila’s smudge sticks. I love how smooth and creamy they are with a very long staying power. I used this for only a few days and then I got an eye infection, so I don’t have a full experience of the eyeliner. As well, I was watching Kathleen Lights YouTube channel today and she mentioned an eyeliner in her video that I absolutely need to get my hands on. I don’t remember the name, but it is from Sephora. Eyeliner is definitely a staple in my makeup routine.

What are your faves?
