L’Oreal Highlighter, Green Ivy, Silver Sky Infallible Silkissime Eyeliners (Part 2)

L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner ($8.99 for 0.03 oz.) is described as a long-wearing, smudge-proof formula that will glide on smoothly and last for 16 hours You can see the first three I reviewed here. I’m quite fond of this formula overall, but that wear claim is substantial and these just don’t make it even close to it–the best wear I get is about ten hours. There is still visible eyeliner on after as long as fourteen hours, but it’s much, much thinner and less vibrant. The color payoff and glide-on consistency are the most impressive aspects of the formula, even with their brighter, more colorful shades.

L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner

L’Oreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner ($8.99 for 0.03 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, smudge-proof formula that will glide on smoothly and last for 16 hours. My experience with them is that they’re long-wearing–easily nine to ten hour wear–but sixteen is a total stretch as there is only about a third of the eyeliner remaining. They don’t smudge or budge during the day, and they set fairly quickly, so if you prefer to smudge out your eyeliner, you may find this formula dries too fast. What I really liked about these was how creamy and silky the texture was, as they glided easily across the lash line. The color payoff was pretty good, though the purple shade was the weakest of the three. I wish they didn’t claim such a long wear time, because I loved two of the three shades I tested, but their scores are being pulled down because of that claim.

Fyrinnae Sexy Nerd Lip Lustre

Fyrinnae Sexy Nerd Lip Lustre ($7.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright magenta with gold shimmer and highlight.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with gold shimmer. The layer of gold shimmer seems to be a more defining characteristic of this shade, as it made it harder to dupe. Kat Von D Lullabye (P, $21.00) is more matte, no gold shimmer. Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is a gloss, redder, less shimmery. MAC Pink Poodle (DC, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler-toned. MAC Midnight Mambo (LE, $22.00) is cooler-toned. Milani Flashy (DC, $6.49) is less golden. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Yaoi (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, lacks the gold shimmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sleek Makeup Arabian Nights i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette

Sleek Makeup Arabian Nights i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette ($11.99 for 0.36 oz.) is a limited edition set of twelve eyeshadows in shades of “deep tones of green, blue and gold.” The i-Divine Eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “super-pigmented [and] long-lasting.” I think this is a worthwhile palette at this price point; there are a few misses, but there are enough hits to make it compelling. If you typically use primer, I think some of the misses will be more manageable. When Sleek nails it, they REALLY nail it, but when they miss, it’s usually by a fair amount, and I usually find their satin/matte shades to be a bit drier, which results in sheerer color payoff compared to their more shimmery shades that are usually amazing.

LORAC Navy Skinny Palette

LORAC Navy Skinny Palette This has now sold out online (it was still up yesterday, boo!!), so your only opportunity will be to see if you can find it in stores. While I liked the Nude palette, I found the Navy one to be rather powdery, particularly when I actually tried to use it and apply the colors to my lid. They just didn’t adhere well, and instead, had a tendency to look both powdery and uneven, plus they didn’t wear as long as the other palette did.
