Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Happy Days

12 Sep

How excited was I to pick this little number up!! Wanted to love it in the Sephora store. Wanted to love it at home. But in the end, this was just meh! Frankly, I think I own more Nars products than anything else. Yet this left me so disappointed. I loved the color, a gorgeous coral. And I loved the application. This fat pencil suprisingly gave me so much control.

But in terms of longevity – zilcho! I found it more drying than hydrating. Not very glossy. And the color faded in what felt like seconds. I chose Happy Days. And I was really happy, up unti it sat on my lips for a while…

MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Industry

4 Sep

Wanna pop those eyes? Make them really stand out? Want something less harsh than black, but with more oomph than brown? MAC’s Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Industry is just the ticket! An absolute staple for me and the number one reason for that is the color. An ever so-slightly shimmery gunmetal gray that leaves your eyes with gorgeous yet subtle definition.

 

 

Now, I know gray can sound boring but somehow MAC hits the ideal shade with this liner. My fave ways to use it? On and around the waterline. On the waterline, it just kicks up your eyes in a way that is breathtaking but never obvious. And great for smudging right below the waterline, for a more smoldering eye in seconds.

Not sure if I agree with MAC’s claims that Industry is waterproof, but its got very respectable staying power. I do find that it can smudge a bit after hours of wear. But that won’t stop me from using this daily. The color makes this pencil’s few drawbacks obsolete!
