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. 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 🙂
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 is Maybelline’s Unstoppable and the second one is L’Oreal Infallible. They both have a very long lasting power, as I can go a long day without having it come off.
This eyeliner comes in three different shades, Onyx, Pewter and Espresso. 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!
This eyeliner comes in three different shades as well, Black Brown, Black and Carbon Black. 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?
