Review: NYX Retractable Eye Liner

15 Mar

Hello everyone! An eyeliner review today and boy I have a lot of these eyeliners.

Description: Waterproof colorful eyeliners for a perfect everyday look. The shades that I purchased are as follows 01 White, 05 Silver, 06 Gold, 08 Silky Cashmere, 09 Turquoise Blue, 10 Gray, 11 Purple, 12 Pink, 13 Blue Eyes, 14 Deep Blue, 16 Golden Olive. (this was the best picture I could take for you all) All swatches were done with two swipes across the arm and are in the order written above.

Review: There was a time where I was just purely an eyeliner pencil user who loved to sharpen pencils but when those pesky pencil shavings started migrating onto other makeup products I decided it was enough. So I switched over to mechanical pencils in which I didn’t have to sharpen and worry about. But I still like having both options as the thing with pencil liners is that they tend to be creamier and smoother than the mechanical eyeliners. So the texture of the pencils are not as smooth but they still glide acros the lids without any extra tugging. The shade that I had some noted difficulty with was Purple it wasn’t as pigmented as it’s counterparts and was streaky, dragging mess across my lids. Staying power was decent around 6-7 hours but passes the 8 hour mark with a primer (hey I have oily lids I can’t help it). For being waterproof they are as long as you don’t tug at it and I love that you don’t have to sharpen them but can still create a thick or thin line. Overall, great eyeliners except for the purple and the shade selection is just great.

Cost: $4.50USD per pencil @ online stores (nyxcosmetics.com, ebay.ca)

Would I recommend this product? I would these eyeliners are great for an everyday look and the amount of colors available is amazing.

Greek Style

23 Mar

Hello everyone! Lately I’ve been noticing a lot of love for Greek food products. I think they are healthy but for the life of me I can’t get over how nasty olives taste. But I have ventured elsewhere there isn’t an olive in sight. Please welcome Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is a thicker yogurt compared to the usual runny liquidy yogurt we get in stores. It has more proteins less carbohydrates and lower in sodium. I found it to be really thick and creamy which is a nice change to my usual yogurt. Some things I dislike about this is that it does not provide a lot of calcium compared to regular yogurt.

Be as it may I think I might indulge in Greek yogurt if there are more different flavors.

BTW, the flavour was peach and passionfruit.
