Everyday Eye Makeup

Beware, this is quite a long post.

YSL Long Lasting Eye Pencil #10

Bare face, only with the pencil

This is the #10 YSL Long Lasting Eye Pencil. I actually have a back up for this because I really really love this one. It's in a silver color, best for night wear. It's shiny but not glittery which I adore! This is best to mix with other colors especially for a smoky effect.

Chanel Le Crayon Yeux in Noir Black

YSL vs. Chanel
Chanel and YSL

These are my top two favorites for eye pencils. I love black because it's a good base to mix with all other colors. For the silver/gray YSL, I love it because it's dark but not really. :) Sometimes, I actually use the YSL for daytime because it's not as heavy or dark as the black Chanel.

Btw, both comes in a box with sharpeners.

The Face Shop Shimmer Liner Pencil in Purple and Dark Blue
Swatches of the two plus YSL and Chanel
Dark blue (Looks almost black but in person, it's really dark blue)
In purple
Purple and Dark Blue

What I like about it:
  1. Face Shop liners are very easy to put on, slides really well
  2. Doesn't clot easily like other liners
  3. Easy to sharpen
  4. Really like the colors
  5. No glitter/shimmer
  6. Great by itself
  7. Somewhat waterproof
What I don't like about it:
  1. Texture is thick
Bobbi Brown

BB's Creamy Eye Pencil in Walnut 1
What I like about it:
  1. True brown color
  2. Comes with the corrector at the other end
What I don't like about it:
  1. It really is a pencil so when the "woody" part touches your skin, it actually hurts
  2. It's hard to sharpen
  3. When you apply it, it's actually too light so you have to apply a few more times

Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara in Wonder Brown 33
Actually, I'm about to throw this away since this is kinda dry already. Bye bye Guerlain!

Clinique Eye Defining Liquid Liner in in 03 Dark Brown
This is actually the best liner I've ever tried. I remember when I was trying to look for a liquid liner, I tried this one, MAC and other ones. I didn't like the MAC because it was too thick. Was supposed to buy one from Bobbi Brown but they only have gel liners. I wanted a portable one so I got this one. I actually wanted to buy it in black but it looked to heavy that's why I bought it in brown. Will get another one of these when I get the chance! Another thing I like about this is it doesn't dry up easily while still in the can.

So that's what's in my beauty loot which I bring with me everyday!

  1. its good that you have different colors for it would be great to combine them especially if the skin tone of the user is somehow a little complicated.
