NYX – Slim Eye Pencils – in Black and Bronze Glitter

Hello beauties,

Today I thought if reviewing some other products I was given from NYX , one of which are these Slim eye pencils in Black and Bronze Glitter. I have to admit I am not much of a glittery person when it comes to eye pencils, I always seem to go for the matte ones, however it’s nice to have something different for a change. I have tried something similar back in the day, and they used to be quite rough on the eyes because of the glitters, but these liners are truly an exception, they applied very smoothly and gave impressive results.  I might actually try something fun with these too someday.

Pros:

  • They have a wide selection of eye pencils and not just glitter ones like I have
  • They are super affordable they retail for about 3 to 4 euros if i’m not mistaken
  • The liners are very smooth and it applies well, without the need of having to apply several layers especially the black one.
  • Once applied it stays put, I never had any problems with fading however I would suggest using a concealer underneath especially for those that have oily lids.

Cons:

  • The Bronze shimmer is slight less pigmented but it applies smoothly as well, it takes a couple of layers to achieve an opaque line.
  • It says you can even apply it on your brow, I highly suggest for you not to do so because of the glitter.  Nobody wants glittery eye-brows unless it’s for a fashion shoot or an artistic  make-up look.

Will I ever the this product again? Being that they since they are super cheap, I’m not expecting them to be the best pencils out there. I probably won’t purchase any more of the glitter pencils, but I would buy their regular Slim Pencils, which are great buys!

Do I recommend this product? If you like having shimmery liners than I would definitely recommend these particular liners, as they are cheap and good quality but if your not into the shimmery one buy the regular slim pencils, they’re great 🙂

Eyebrow Tutorial

Hello beautiful people,

Last week I was watching a lovely eyebrow pictorial from the lovely Nicole from Nicole’s Beauty blog which you can visit here. She did this lovely eyebrow pictorial and transformed her eyebrows to perfection. I have to admit, I do not give a lot of attention to my brows :O shame on me hehe. Being that now eyebrows are given a major importance in make up looks, I shall show you my own method of creating the “perfect” brows.

Eyebrow

  1.  In the first picture you are seeing my natural brows with some Vaseline to help them stay put. I start by applying a dark brown almost black, kohl eyeliner.
  2. Then I use a white eye pencil and outline my eyebrows, to give them a defying shape.
  3. I blend the white pencil and apply come concealer that matches my skin colour.
  4. Finally I bend the concealer and use some powder to help the liner stay put and not smudge.

I do hope you like the eyebrow tutorial, unfortunately the pictures aren’t great but that will do for now. Hopefully in the future I get to purchase a good camera.  Do check Nicole pictorial as it is by far better than mine.

Thank you for following and keep posted as tomorrow I have a new look coming up for you guys. I do hope you like it 🙂

xoxo
