Happy Easter weekend everyone! Whether or not you celebrate Easter, I hope you're enjoying a lovely spring time weekend. I spent some time today doing spring cleaning, mainly sorting through my makeup, picking out things that I need to start using again, and throwing out ones I no longer want.
Among the "need to start using" pile are 3 products that I never really paid much attention to. They didn't make a strong enough impression upon first try and were soon chucked into my "forgotten" drawer. With spring cleaning I've decided to give them a second chance.
The Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils are my favorite pencil liners, so it was only a matter of time that I try the Urban Decay Liquid Liners. They've since re-packed the liquid liner into a sleek pen form (which I think looks much better), but back in the day their liquid liner came in this little pot & brush packaging. It's slightly intimidating only because it's very, very black and dries really, really fast. But with practice this is an amazing black liquid liner. Next is the Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick. For a while I really enjoyed using this on blemishes, until the Bourjois Correcting Concealer swooped in and dominated the concealer department of my routine. Between the 2 though, this Bobbi Brown one is still the winner when it comes to blemishes - it's tackier, therefore stays on better; and more yellow toned, therefore hides redness better. It's also great for chucking into your purse for mid-day touch ups on bad skin days. Last but not least, another concealer that made a disappointing first impression is the Soap & Glory Trick & Treatment concealer. It claims to brighten under eye circles by reflecting light, but in all honestly all I see is a shiny, greasy, awkward finish. To me this one is on its way out, but I thought I'd give it just one more try before tossing out an almost brand new tube of concealer.
Have you tried these products? Please let me know your thoughts!
P.S. More on the "throwaway" pile up next!
