L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eyeliner in Violet review, swatches!

I should self proclaim myself as the “eyeliner princess!” at least in my family! world famous in my gali types! So when I see one, I scan it totally in my mind! and most of the time, I’m right! I’m not kidding! perks of blogging you see!
So, I wanted a purple something as a base under the eyeshadow. nothing fancy. just something to smudge as a base. I had absolutely no expectations from this. Out of the three I selected this because it had a smudger!

L’Oreal says :From your favorite nail color comes L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Eyeliner. This perfect pencil glides on and blends easily to help you create your favorite eye looks from a smoldering smoky eye (smudger included!) to a well-defined cat eye. Glides on and blends easily. Opthamologist Tested

1) Conceal your dark circles : I cannot stress more on this. you do not have to wear a heavy foundation or creams etc but do not ignore those eyes. They call them the window to the soul for nothing. Just a tiny bit under the eyes and you’d be set! but be careful, too uch or too light and you’d look like a panda!

2) A tiny bit of color on the lips : There are hordes & hordes of lip product brands available in almost all the countries so you can choose your pic. tip : if you don’t want a stark strong lipcolor, just dab some & apply with your fingers an

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella review and swatches!

I find the word Scarlet really sexy. When I read scarlet, it reminds me of Marilyn Monroe, Scarlet-O-hara, basically a hot curvy lady with a flowy dress and high stilettos! a picture just forms in my mind! I also secretly wear scarlet something when I want to feel good about myself!

What : The NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Cruella! NARS describes it as a passionate scarlet red.
Cost : $24.

My take on Cruella : After using RiRiWoo (reviewed HERE) I absolutely fell in love with scarlet reds – Although I’m mostly biased towards neutrals & n*des. I was lingering around the NARS counter during the TMS so much that the head makeup artist knew my face at the end of the weekend! So I got this one & a purple Never say never (HERE). I have not used it much because I don’t want it to get over. hehhe.
