So I’m trying to fulfill two of this year’s resolutions with this product – a liquid eyeliner in the natural category. I’ve been wanting to use eyeliner but haven’t had much success with the drugstore brands. All in all, I’ve bought three different eyeliners of different brands and they all failed me miserably. Somehow, they always fade out before the end of the day! And this Josie Maran Magic Marker Argan Liquid Eye Liner? Is it working for me?
I know some friends of mine will always try to look their best and be in the tip top condition even when they are feeling a little under the weather. Looking back, knowing some of them for ten years now, I have never once seen them looking sloppy or even looking like they are suffering from fatigue despite their whining and complaints. It’s a different story for myself entirely though. When I’m not feeling well or tired, it really shows in my eyes even if I make efforts to conceal it. So over the years, I’m less bothered about hiding my discomfort if I’m not feeling well and have to be out running an errand.
I have always been very safe when it comes to my makeup. I tend to choose very muted and safe colours, and more than often, I come across as under dressed than over dressed for special occasions. I have this worry of over dressing and looking like a clown somehow; strange, but very real in my irrational train of thoughts. Lately, however, I have decided to make little changes in my makeup kit. I have decided to be more adventurous and venture into colours I have never tried before.
Due to the problem of yucky white film I’ve been getting on my lips, I stayed away from lipsticks for quite a long time—almost a year! But recently, I started wearing them again and I’ve been rotating between two creamy lipsticks from Paul Pender. They’re quite pretty and very wearable and I thought I’ll share my love by giving 5 of them away too. Say YAY?
After noticing the increase in eyelash fall out during the removal of my mascara, I have been on the lookout for a natural alternative of mascara that functions as well as the commercialized ones but without the harsh chemicals. I have tried a few organic brands of mascaras before and found them to be average and a little pricey for their less than stellar performance. But I think I may have finally found my holy grail of natural mascaras in Dr. Hauschka’s Volumizing Mascara.
