The Eyeliner Showdown

Hey guys.

I have no talent or skills when it comes to make up so I only have four things that I use on a daily basis. And they are all very important to me. So please dont ask me to pick which one I couldn’t live without. Haha!

Oh if you were curious of the three things that I use on a daily basis, they are: eye brow definer, tinted moisturizer, liquid lipstick and eyeliner. And today we are going to talk about the eyeliners!

I am always on the hunt for an awesome eyeliner especially from the price point and how long it will last.

These are the eyeliners I have been using lately. Mind you, I wear them to the gym as well so that’s about 1.5 – 2 hours of sweating. Here you go!

1- Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyelinerย 

Woah!! That’s a mouthful. Haha! And as I was typing it, I was wondering if this was a crayon or a gel eyeliner. Sorry, I ain’t a makeup expert. But I know they are gel, crayon and liquid eyeliners right? Maybe this Marc Jacobs’s eyeliner is both? Like 2 in 1?

To be honest, I got this as a birthday gift from Sephora Birthday gift last year and guess what? I freakin love this! This lasts the whole day you guys! Yes, even when i go to the gym and get on the Stairmaster for 50 minutes! This wont budge until you clean your face! You can check the product out here :ย Marc Jacobs

It has 3 different finishes and a lot of colours to choose from too! This is my ultimate favourite and thanks to Sephora’s awesome birthday gift, I have discovered this! If you haven’t done so, please enroll in Sephora’s Beauty Rewards and you get to collect awesome birthday gift!

Verdict: I highly recommend this! ๐Ÿ™‚

2- Chanel Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer

Okay I purchased this about a year of two ago so I dont remember where I got it from. Most probably in Neiman Marcus in St Louis. Sadly guys, I paid the most for this and it’s kind of a let down. I know everyone’s eyelids are different and mine can be oily and this doesnt sit well at all on my eyelids. It can get everywhere and fades very quickly too. You can check the product here:ย Chanel

It comes with a sharpener (perhaps that’s why it’s expensive. You get a Chanel sharpener LOL) and oh, at the end of the crayon there’s a smudge tip applicator.

Verdict: I do not recommend this. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

3- Urban Decay Perversion All Nighter Eyeliner

I can’t find this on the website you guys! It must have been an old style because I bought this from Nordstrom Rack. Funny, my left eyelid still had the eyeliner but it’s a mess on my right eyelid. So I don’t know how to feel about this. It’s the least priced amongst all three but what I dont like about it is it’s a retractable version. I prefer the ones that you can sharpen. Sorry I couldn’t find any link to this online. Not even on Nordstrom Rack website. Boo.

Verdict: I do not recommend this. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So there you go guys! I might be a bit harsh with the verdicts but hey, I only have a few items that I can judge for my lack of skills and knowledge when it comes to makeup. I hope this post will help you to decide on which high end eyeliner to get next time because I know the pain of trying make up stuff and they don’t work as good as you’d like them to.

Thanks for reading you guys and if you have any favourite eyeliner that you think I should try, comment below and let me know!

Take care.

Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly Review

Hey guys,

Today I’d like to do a review on Lush’s Whoosh Shower Jelly. I bought this shower jelly last weekend from the Lush store after being introduced to it by the ever so lovely SA named Zara.

Yes, I try to remember the names of people I met. ๐Ÿ™‚

First off, this jelly is quite tricky to use in the shower. Here are some pictures of it.

You can use this jelly in two different ways:

A- Slide the whole jelly on your body and rub your skin with your hands.

Squeeze !!

B- Pinch and take a small chunk out and put in on your loofah and work the bubble!

My favorite way? The first one. Especially after taking the Whoosh out of the fridge. It gives this really cooling sensation. ๐Ÿ™‚

Whoosh can be used as shampoo as well and I think it does alright. If you are interested in this product, head over to any Lush store and grab yourself one. I think it would be more fun to use it with kids.

The little kid in me enjoyed it. ๐Ÿ™‚

If there’s no Lush anywhere near you, head over to

Much love.
