|L'Oreal Lacquer Liner|
$9.95 (but if you buy it in Greenwich Ct. add 2 bucks)
Oh joy!!! I am in love. I have long been a fan of Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner. I would never attempt to use it without the separate brush you must purchase to apply it with, or after a night of one too many cocktails. It takes a skilled and steady hand and it is not for Sissie's.
Most of us know our faces fairly well in terms of it's makeup requirements. While I intellectually embrace that as we age, we should be mindful of over doing makeup, when I under-do my eyes, I know I look tired.
What is no longer working is black eyeliner. I am brown eyed, so switching to brown liner seems like a no brainer but it somehow misses and looks bland. I was in CVS last night, so naturally I perused the aisle for inspiration.
I stumbled upon L'Oreal's Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H and looked through the color options. It's available in 5 shades: Blackest Black, Espresso, Bronze, Dark Slate and Navy. I took a gamble on the Dark Slate, though in the glare of fluorescence it was reading more slab than slate.
Infallible Lacquer Liner has a beautiful glossy finish. It was much darker than it appeared in the store and it glided on like a dream. The brush is pitch perfect and the consistency of this liner is much easier to handle than my
It was created to last for 24 hours, one claim I will not be test driving. For one long snow day, however, it has not budged. This is my first makeup love of the New Year. The fact that it is what I call "cheap and cheerful" makes it all that much sweeter.
Run don't walk to your nearest 24 hour drugstore...unless of course you live in the N.E. In that case, dig out in the morning and then go.
This, officially, is a rave.
