Do you want to see the thinnest eyeliner ever?

Do you want to see the thinnest eyeliner ever? Of course you do.

The Blinc Ultrathin Liquid Eyeliner Pen has a 0.00876mm brush that delivers the slimmest and most precise liquid liner.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara

Happy Holidays to all of you beauties! I hope you each had a great holiday and spent some quality time with loved ones. I can’t believe Christmas is over, but luckily there is one more holiday coming up soon. New Year’s Eve is only a few days away and I am already planning my outfit and makeup!

One of my favourite beauty products is a bold mascara, and I have a great one to show you guys just in time for the new year! The new L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara is a new take on the other Voluminous Butterfly mascaras, and this one has a double wing brush to coat all of your lashes.

The L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara has a brush that looks like an arrow, with a tapered tip and wider base. The bristles are quite stiff and made of plastic, but that means they grab each lash and separate them for intense volume and fullness. Since there are so many bristles they catch each lash and fan them out for extra volume and definition. The formula is dark and easy to apply, and with only two coats I had dramatic bold lashes.

Quick Pick: Make Up For Ever Ink Liner

The new Make Up For Ever Ink Liner is the perfect skinny liquid liner with a great matte formula. For  precise lines, quick drying liner, and long-wearing look, this Ink Liner is a must-have product.

The triangular tube is great for holding the applicator tightly, and it gives strong control of the liner. With a calligraphy pen tip this works with the lightest touch. Once the liner is on it dries into a chic matte formula that lasts for hours with no smudging.

If you’re looking for a skinny line, super smooth application, and an amazing formula then look no further. The new Make Up For Ever Ink Liner will be available in January 2015 and is a must-have liner for the new year!

The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Polish: One Coat Wonder

One of the greatest things in a beauty-addict’s world is when you find a nail polish that only needs one coat. It’s a simple thing but it makes manicures so much faster and easier. It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes a great formula comes along and really wows me, and The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Polish definitely has that wow-factor.

The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Polish line has 24 shades of bright, bold, and basic colours. From classic nudes to bold berry tones, this nail polish has something for everyone. And the best part is the formula! The three polishes I have tried were all one coat wonders. The formula was the perfect blend of creamy opaque colour and it was such a breeze to brush on a single coat and be done.

Oh yeah, one more bonus about these nail polishes – they’re vegan!

The three shades I’m showing you are Smoky Rose, a basic black, Deeply In Love, a medium toned berry fuchsia, and Almond Kiss, a light nude beige. All three of these had great formulas and are really shiny without a top coat.
I was really impressed with these nail polishes from The Body Shop since I typically associate that brand with only body products. Now that I know how great these polishes are I am definitely interested in trying more makeup from The Body Shop.

I Got So Many Compliments on the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara

For the past few weeks I have been wearing one of my favourite mascaras and I have gotten quite a few compliments on my lashes. The L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara delivers dark, full, fluffy lashes that makes people take a second look! You can check it out on the L’Oreal Paris website here.

I usually apply two coats and they go on easily. The brush is pretty basic, just a straight tube shape with no curve. The bristles are pretty stiff but I like that and it allows every lash to get coated in a solid layer of mascara.

One person said that my lashes look like little feathers, another said they looked very fluffy, like fabric, and a lot of people just said my lashes looked good. I don’t hear these things often and those are totally the kind of compliments I like to hear about my mascara.

Fluffy and feather-like is right! This mascara gave me a full and soft looking fringe, with a super dark formula. I wear the waterproof version so it stays on extremely well and gives me intense eyelashes. I love how dark and voluminous my lashes look, and the name is really accurate – Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara.

The Three Best Halloween Nail Polishes

One of the best nail polish brands out there is the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line. The polishes are awesome opaque colours and dry in 60 seconds. They only need two coats (sometimes even one if you’re lucky) and they always deliver bold pigmented shades. I love how quick and convenient they are, and the range of colours is really great. You can see the whole line of shades here.

The Sally Hansen Limited Edition Insta-Dri Halloween Collection consists of three perfect polishes for the holiday. They are only $4.95 each so you’ll have to scoop them up quickly before they’re gone. The three shades are  Pumpkin Queen, a perfect medium-toned orange, Night Fright, a shiny jet black, and OMGhost, a crisp bright white.

They’re all awesome on their own but they can also be used for some cute Halloween nail art ideas. I’m thinking a ghost with the white and black for the eyes, or a jack-o-lantern with the orange and black.

All three of them are super opaque and only needed two coats for perfection. I probably could have gotten away with just one quick coat but I was being extra careful so I went with two. The brush is pretty large and has a rounded tip, which I love. It covers my whole nail in one stroke so application couldn’t be easier!

The Body Shop 2-In-1 Smoky Gel Liner & Brow Definer Is My New Obsession

I am not an eyeliner girl at all. I have zero artistic skill and cannot manage to draw a straight line for the life of me. Gel liners, liquid liners, you name it and I’ve tried it. I just can never seem to master the simple flick of a cat eye or steady my hand for a swipe of liner. That all changed with the new gel liner from The Body Shop.

The Body Shop 2-In-1 Smoky Gel Liner & Brow Definer is a gel formula that is enriched with Community Fair Trade Marula Oil. It can be used for eyes or brows, but since I never touch my brows I’m only focusing on the liner use. It comes in black and brown, both classic shades. The formula is smooth and creamy, and it applies so easily.

The packaging is really cool too. The brush is hidden in the cap and can be attached to the cap to create a handle. The brush part is actually more of a rounded brush point so it can be used along the side edge for a skinny look or the flat side for a thicker, wider look.

The liner lasts for quite a long time. I love that because once I get it right once it will stay all day and I don’t need to reapply. Although I typically struggle with any and all eyeliner, this one is different. I was able to do a perfect swipe along my lash line with no smudging, no missing spots, no problems at all. It takes me a matter of seconds and the result looks great and lasts for hours. What more could you want in an eye liner?

I can’t believe how easy this is to use. I’ve been wearing it every day and am amazed at how great this product is. I never used to think of The Body Shop for makeup but now I’m pretty enticed. If this was so great then I’m sure there must be other cosmetics I’ll enjoy too.
