Most Overrated & Underrated Liquid Eyeliner

Over & Under: Most Overrated & Underrated Liquid Eyeliner

There are always products that receive endless raves, but they don’t always live up to our expectations or work out as well as they do for others.  Share your picks for most overrated and underrated LIQUID EYELINERS.  Don’t forget to share your whats and whys as to your choices!

  • Most Overrated: [answer]
  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: MAC Boot Black — I was always a much bigger fan of their Liquidlasts (now discontinued) over their regular liquid eyeliner.
  • Most Underrated: MUFE or Stila’s new eyeliners; I like the shade ranges, and I really like the applicator on MUFE’s.

Sunday Link Love, Volume #096

Happy Sunday!

How’s your weekend so far? I’m always curious how others spend their weekends!  I’m taking my parents’ to brunch later on today, but after that, I really have to buckle down and get a lot of work done.  I’ve planned out my to-do lists for the next week, so I’m really hoping to stay productive and on track!  I’ll probably let Mellan plod around in his giant water bowl (aka 6′ pool) later this afternoon, too, as my afternoon break 🙂

5 Wearable Medium Brown Eyeshadows

5 Wearable Medium Brown Eyeshadows

Not so into really rich, dark browns (of which there are many to choose from!) — not to worry: here are five lighter shades that still have plenty of color. These shades work well on the lid as well as in the crease!

  1. Benefit Dandy Brandy — Medium-dark warm brown with a golden sheen
  2. Bare Minerals Namaste Eyeshadow — medium brown with a gray tinge
  3. MAC Wedge — medium brown with a satiny sheen
  4. Urban Decay YDK — medium warm brown with red undertones
  5. MAC Texture — warm, orange-toned medium brown with a pearly sheen

What’s your favorite medium brown eyeshadow? How do you incorporate it into a look?

Oh, definitely! I think the more products and brands you try, the more you start to expect out of every product. Like when you discover the best eyeshadow, it’s only the best until you find a new best — and of course, at some point, you’ve tried quite a few, so it’s hard to find the next best formula. You also learn what does and doesn’t work for you, your skin tone, etc. We also go through changes in our personal lives, so what might have been great during high school might not translate to the work place.

MAC Beth Ditto and Casual Colour Collection Round-ups


MAC Beth Ditto and Casual Colour Collection Round-ups

MAC & Beth Ditto and MAC Casual Colour hit stores on June 7th, but are both available online at MAC’s website now and will make their away to other retailers in the next week. Videos for both are coming soon 🙂

Just a heads up, I’m not reviewing any other products from this collection (e.g. permanent products, repromoted colored mascaras, etc.), so we are just about done with the posts for this collection, aside from the upcoming videos for each!
