Jordana Retractable Eye Pencils

Hello again readers~

Another quick swatch (only one left! Yes! :D), this time, of Jordana Retractable Eye Pencils. 

 

They come in a variety of colors, but the only colors that I own are black and blue.


I have been using the black retractable eye pencil for years, and it does smudge if you rub at it! It's not the most durable of pencils, and the blue is even worse, smearing all over the place. It's cheap though, at only 2 dollars a pop, but isn't the best of pencils. 

I use it as a guide for cat-eyes and I used to use it to line my waterline. Great for making quick smudge-looks though for the days I'm either in a big hurry, or just incredibly lazy.

Hot Topic Eyeliner Pencils

Hello again readers~

Bringing you some new swatches today. I swatched all three of the Hot Topic brand eyeliners; teal, white, and red.


Each of the pencils are 2 dollars each (but I usually buy whatever I find in clearance to experiment with).


I like how they're pigmented, and soft. They glide on skin easily, and you get great color payoff without the need to constantly go over it multiple times. They do smear, very easily too, so in order for them to stay you'd need to set it with a finishing spray or powder to keep your look fresh.

Even though they smear, I love how many colors you can get, and not only colors, but they have shimmer pencils too. It's a reasonably priced product that allows you to expand your makeup boundaries without burning a hole through your wallet.

Wet n Wild Waterproof and Teal Liquid Liners

Hello again readers~

I'm just going to drop this little post off and be on my merry way~


The Mega Liner in Teal is 3 dollars, and H2O Proof in Black is 4 dollars. Cheap prices don't you think? But how do they look?


The black isn't a completely pure black, but I don't think anyone will take much notice. It does dry matte, and you *may* have to go over it again to get it as pigmented as you'd like.  The teal is marvelous, it's bright, pigmented, and has shimmer that makes your eyes POP.


This is after wiping at it for about ten seconds with makeup remover. The teal stains, and the H2O proof doesn't budge, you really have to work at it to get it off.

REVIEW: H2O Proof Liquid Liner in Black

Pros:
  • Is decently waterproof. It holds up against rain and lake water (unless I rub at it!)
  • Cheap! It's only 4 dollars!
  • Easy to get a hold of
Cons:
  • Application can be a little light, I like to put another coat on JIC
  • Sometimes if I would be swimming in the lake, it MIGHT dissolve around the edges if you rub at it (see below picture)
  • If you rub at it enough, bits will start coming off
Overall: 3/5

I like how easy it is to apply since it has a felt tip, but I also think the felt tip is sort of a curse, since it lifts some of the newly applied product away. It does work a decent amount, though I'm sure there's others out there that will work better.


REVIEW: Mega Liner in Teal

Pros:
  • Cheap, only 3 dollars
  • MEGA pigmented. I wore it with my lash-line coated in black and mascara and it worked wonders. 
Cons:
  • It stains. If you wipe it off, it's stained green a bit which isn't the most ideal thing ever.
Overall: 4/5
Even with it staining, I still like it. It has a brush tip, so it might be a little hard to control, but once you master it, the payoff is great.

Stone Cold - NOTD

Hello again readers~

This polish has been swatched dozens of times, but  how about one more? I picked this up when I was with Cory weeks ago, and finally got around to painting my nails with Stone Cold by China Glaze.
 


(The above picture is not mine!)

Stone Cold is representing District 2 from the Hunger Games, and was my favorite polish from the entire Hunger Games collection. (Agro came in a close second!)

At first when I applied it, I was really pleased that it was a one-coater, which is great for me since I'm inpatient. Though it turned into a disaster, because I was so focused on getting it perfect, that it would dry! It's a one coat polish because it dries matte very quickly so to apply it you must be fast!


I really do like the matte finish of it, and the  silver shimmer just makes it look amazing. Though the reason I really wanted this polish is due to how it looks with a top coat over it.



Instant love. :)

OOTD

Hello again readers~

Just another Winchester-inspired look. Instead of a gold pendant, I found this 'fire' glass pendant instead. It will do the trick for this. :)

  • Shirt - thrift
  • Cam - Kohl's
  • Jeans - Aeropostale
I have found that I really lack flannel in my closet, so that's my mission to get some more! I also need plain black t-shirts and plain grey t-shirts. :)

1.) Stone Cold by China Glaze - I have seen these swatches all of the internet of the Hunger Games polishes, and this is the one that really caught my eye. It's such a wonderful polish!

2.) Maybelline Falsies Mascara - Still my favorite mascara ever (for now). Lately all I have time for is a couple coats of mascara since I have gotten so lazy!

3.) E.L.F. Small Angled Brush - Perfect for applying my eyeliner. Soft and smooth.

4.) Got 2 B Smooth Operator - Keeps my hair smelling great and soft when I straighten it.

5.) Suave Professionals Almond + Shae Butter Shampoo - It smells AMAZING, and keeps hair smooth and moisturized.
