Eye See Colors

IMG_3259A couple of months ago I received my glam bag of makeup from my monthly Ipsy subscription box and I was excited to try my new bag of beauty treats! My makeup bag had five new products to try but I was only interested in four out of the five. The one product that caught my eye was the Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with Brush Built-In by Cailyn Cosmetics.

Ipsy was my first introduction to Cailyn Cosmetics so I had to do a little research to find out the beauty 411 behind the brand. Cailyn believes that every woman is an artist at heart and has the yearning to define her unique style of beauty but unfortunately, some women don’t have the skill of a makeup artist. They offer products to inspire a woman’s creative spirit to bridge the gap between an aspiring artist and a makeup artist. The mission for Cailyn Cosmetics is to be “The Professional Makeup Company For The Rest Of Us.” So now that we both know a little more about the brand, let’s talk about the features and benefits of the Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with The Glam it or Slam it!

Here’s The Glam: The colors are very high with pigment so they will work on different skin tones and the colors are super sexy too. The gel eyeliner has a built-in brush that is attached to the top of the packaging, which means you will not loose the brush or contaminate it by leaving it in the bottom of your makeup bag. It goes on smooth and it is easy to apply. Once the gel dries, it is smudge proof and waterproof for up to 24 hours (I applied mine the other day at 10:00 AM and it was still on at 2:00 AM without smudges even though my eyelids were a little oily). The best thing for me is that the product wears well on sensitive eyes; I did not experience any tearing or itching. Sounds perfect…right?

Here’s The Slam: You have to wash the brush after every use and if you are in a rush or get lazy, this can totally be a pain in the you know where. LOL

Overall, I really like the Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner by Cailyn Cosmetics, so much so that I want to add other colors to my collection and maybe trade some of my pencils for the gel. With that said, my final grade for the gel eyeliner is 5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH! Even though I had a slam about the product, it was not a deal breaker for me; it is actually something that will keep my eyes safe and from getting an infection. If you are interested in purchasing the Cailyn Cosmetics Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner, you can get it on ipsy.com or cailyncosmetics.com for $21 and you can pick from a beautiful array of 13 luscious colors! Happy lining!

My Beauty Play Date with Mary Kay

Last week I had a makeup play date with my new favorite Mary Kay Consultant, Curtrice. I can’t believe how much fun I had testing, trying and playing with the new colors and the Mary Kay at Play line. It’s funny because I was not a huge Mary Kay fan because the brand did not appeal to me. I tried it years ago and it was just…blah and it never occurred to me to try it again until I met a consultant by the name of Curtrice.

During our makeup play date, she showed me the new colors, trends and the at play line. The colors are vibrant, fresh and exciting. The application was smooth, the eye shadows did not crease and the staying power was long lasting!!! I enjoyed the products so much that I purchased a few 🙂

My favorite product so far has to be the Lash Love Mascara in Plum. It offers a different option to the normal black or brown colors. It helps my brown eyes sparkle just a little bit more and it extends the length just a little bit more.

I also have a fondness for the Mary Kay at Play Eye Crayon in Purple Smoke.  It’s a multifunctional product and we all know how much I love products that have 2 or more functions…LOL. You can use this as a liner or smudge it into a shadow. The color is very soft purple with a hint of silver/gray smoke. It glides on very easy and has great staying power.  I liked it so much that I purchased 2 of them.

I must say that I am pleasantly surprised with my Mary Kay products. I also purchased some skincare but I have not had a chance to try it out. But, when I do…a review will be following!!! LOL. This just goes to show that even if a brand does not appeal to you or if you don’t like a few products…it doesn’t mean the whole brand is not worth a try. If it were not for Curtrice, I don’t think that I would have tried the products again. Thank you Curtrice for all of your help and excellent customer service!!!
