Battle Of the Eyeliners: “Smudge-Proof” Pencils, prestige brands
I had a bit of fun at Sephora today. I’ve tried my fair share of really nice, richly pigmented, long lasting eyeliner pencils, and it’s often hard to really figure out the difference between the good ones, and the REALLY good ones. So, I decided to put them to the test… a smudge test.
Up for consideration are some of the most popular eyeliner pencils on the market, including Make Up For Ever, Stila, Urban Decay, and Tarte.
Review + Swatches: NYX Love in Rio Eyeshadow Trio “Caipirinhas on the Beach”
What it is: NYX Cosmetics blue eyeshadow trio
What it Costs: $6
Similar to: Nars Cap Ferrat Trio, $45 (disc.)
Quick Verdict: Thumbs Up
This colorful little trio caught my eye during a recent trip to Ulta - the shades scream summer, and I’m not quite over the warm weather and sunny days! This is an eyeshadow trio full of bright blue shades that are buttery and soft.
Hi hon! You’re not alone in your struggle… lots of people naturally have a lot of pigment to their lips, or have different colored top and bottom lips. For this problem I’d recommend priming your lips before applying lip color - you could actually just use a bit of foundation or concealer (blot lips with a tissue to take off any oiliness after), or you could invest in an actual lip primer. These products will cancel out your lip’s natural tone to help colors show up more true.
ELF Studio Lip Primer & Plumper - $3
I also definitely recommend using some more opaque, thicker lipsticks. There are a lot of good lipsticks like this at the drugstore!
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipsticks - $2
Milani Color Statement Lipsticks - $6
Flower Beauty Lipsticks (Black tube) - $6
Another good trick is to layer lip liner, either nude colored or the same shade as your lipstick, underneath. Just color in your lips with the liner completely - this will help your lipstick stay on a lot longer as well as help it show up totally true to shade.
Good luck, hope this helps you out! :)

Both of these dupes have similar color and texture. Maybelline’s is a little thicker.
