Good morning, ladies!
Thanks to my friend (and fellow product junkie and bookworm) Em’s suggestion, I picked up a L’Oreal eyeliner last week at Target. Oh Target…how come I never spend less than $100 when I visit you? I only needed kleenex and dish soap! But, I digress… 🙂
Em said L’Oreal’s Infallible is her fave drugstore eye liner, and I was pleased to see the range of shades available, from black to brown to gray to combinations of shades. I wound up getting Black/Brown because they were out the Dark Brown. There probably isn’t much difference between the two!
While I was there I got a compliment on my lipstick! I had chosen it because I needed a shot of something bright and cheerful in this never-ending winter we’re having. (Insert Game of Thrones joke here.) I love talking makeup with anyone and everyone so I was excited to tell my fellow shopper it was NARS Carthage , which I bought because I read in InStyle that Ginnifer Goodwin wears it on days she needs to perk up and look pulled together. Mission accomplished, don’t you think?
Like my little buddy clinging to my shoulder, trying to get into the picture? He is a ham already!
Ok so back to the eyeliner. I have to say, it is pretty good. Not as budge-proof as my trusty Benefit Waterproof eyeliner, but half the price, and it self-sharpens so I am not constantly having to whip out a sharpener, which is great because I usually make a mess. I was impressed at the different thicknesses I could accomplish with this pencil too.
I chose the Black/Brown shade because I will wear it the most. It stays put fairly well–I notice a bit collecting in the corners of my eyes when I apply it to my waterline, but it doesn’t get sloppy.
I’m pleased so far! I’ve worn it 4 times, and will wear it again today. We’re getting over massive sickness in our house–so I just went FIVE WHOLE DAYS without mascara, can you believe it? I can’t!
Here’s to sunshine, bright lipstick, and spending too much at Target!
Stay pretty ladies!
