Bobbi Brown Glitter Liquid Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Glitter Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Glitter Liquid Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) are felt-tipped liquid liners available in both Silver (bright silver) and Gold (bright gold).

These have a thin, almost watery consistency that’s been soaked into a long, narrowed pen. As I’ve mentioned a few times now (ha, ha!), I like the liner for its long-wearing capabilities, but the applicator is also very easy to use. It’s flexible without being all over the place, and it’s thin enough to allow for precision. (For a more in-depth review, you may want to consider my MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliners Review).

The liner reminds me of tube mascara, because when you use remover on it, it flakes off, rather than just simply dissolving. I did find that taking a shower (heat and humidity) made it easy for these to flake off IF you rubbed your eyes, but they would stay put otherwise. It does stay tacky for a few minutes, so while you can’t do much if you make a mistake other than starting again, it will feel tacky to the touch.

It’s a good liner, but this is the third time I’ve seen it in the past six months, so it has me raising my eyebrows halfway off my forehead. MAC’s still comes in as the cheapest ($17.50, and it’s actually 0.06 oz.), and they are also permanent.

Giving Thanks! (2010 Edition)

Giving Thanks — Happy Thanksgiving!

Here in the States, it’s Thanksgiving!  It’s one of my favorite holidays, because people come together and (hopefully) enjoy the company. This is also an excellent time to think about the things and people we are thankful to have in our lives–and let them know it!

10 Things I’m Thankful For (Beauty Edition)

  • Jack Black Lip Balm to keep my lips moisturized and help them recover after a mad-dash lip swatching session.
  • Guerlain Rouge Gs for coming out with the most flattering shades so I actually enjoy just wearing lipstick sometimes!
  • China Glaze For Audrey for being the perfect color for summer toes.
  • NARS Smudgeproof, because it keeps my shadow in place without affecting the finish and never muting the color.
  • Tom Ford Oud Wood for making me want to writhe around in my own sexiness after a spritz, LOL!
  • Chanel Exceptionnel for keeping my lashes long, black, and thick.
  • Le Metier de Beaute Echo, because you instantly brighten my cheeks and never look like it’s too much.
  • Benefit Sugarbomb is a highlighting, barely-there blusher come true and a total go-to on lazy days.
  • MAC Brushes — one needs great tools, too!
  • Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque, because it makes me feel like a vixen!

10 Things I’m Thankful For (Life Edition)

  • The amazing emotional support I receive from my family — they are so encouraging and always there cheering me on.
  • My boyfriend for enduring my mindless, nonstop chatter and need to talk 24/7!
  • THE MELLANATOR! for being my heart dog.  He is my cuddle-bug and wiggling machine that always warms my heart.
  • That I only have five more months of school!  AH!
  • Starbucks White Chocolate Mochas with soy, whip, sugar-free hazelnut, and half-caff.  They help me work through the tired!
  • New friends (and their fur-babies)!
  • Reality TV to help me dissolve into mindlessness after a long day.
  • To-do lists (and Outlook!) that help me organized and to not forget half of the things I need to do everyday.
  • Italian food, even if it does go straight to my thighs!
  • Fuzzy socks that keep your feet nice and warm all night long.

And of course, I’m beyond thankful for the amazing readers we have here at Temptalia! 🙂

What are you thankful for?

Benefit Cosmetics Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner

Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow

I love Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Shadows — I actually gave them an award for best cream eyeshadow last year. They’re just so creamy, smooth, and apply beautifully. They can be applied sheerly for quick color or layered for a more intense look or as a base. I don’t experience any creasing–they last all day for me. And as someone who has owned many for over a year now, they aren’t prone to drying out in their jars, either.

I’m happy to report that these didn’t disappoint! They’re true to Benefit’s cream shadow formula with the creaminess and smoothness I’ve come to love. The colors are easily vibrant but just as easily used sheerly, which makes it a more versatile product.

P.S. — Sephora lists Tidal Rave as Tidal Wave–but my box and bottom of the jar says Rave! So pfft!
