SilkyGirl Perfect Stay 20 Hr Eyeliner Review

My favorite eye liner pencils have been smudging on me lately.  It must be the fact that this writer (who used to be super dry skin) is now turning to have normal and sometimes oily skin from all the skincare products I've been using - Hello Hyaluronic Acid!

So I am back, on the quest to finding another great eyeliner pencil that would work for our country - humid and hot!

I recently tried SilkyGirl's Perfect Stay 20HR Eyeliner pencils.

SilkyGirl says ---

With the unique technology of a combination of volatile silicones and siliconic resin, this eyeliner is build to have long-lasting properties as it adheres to the eyelid and is transfer resistant. The high coverage, creamy formula with rich and intense color ensures that the eyeliner glides easily on eyelids. The eyeliner is waterproof and smudge-proof, and comes with a build-in sharpener.

AMW says ---
  • Retractable pencil, comes with sharpener located at the bottom.
  • Waterproof and smudge-proof (to certain extent)
  • Does not smudge on me.
  • Available in 2 most used shades or most useful shade of eyeliner (in my humble opinion).
  • The pigmentation is really good. One swipe you get opaque color!
  • No need to tug your eyes as it glides like a dream!
  • Inexpensive
  • It isn't 20HR wear for me, it does not smudge but some areas tend to disappear (especially on the waterline).

I love the fact that there is a pencil liner that is inexpensive that works!  It stays on my eyelid and waterline for good 5-6 hours without smudging or smearing (as long as I don't use it on workouts!  Who does?)  I used this on normal occasion - running errands, take my son to and from school and so far so good.  It stayed and by end of 6th hour, I find some areas to be disappearing but that is better than having Panda eyes!

BLK Universal All-Day Lip in Toffee

BLK Universal All-Day Lip in Toffee is my ultimate choice of lip color from early 2018 until today!  Whenever I wear a different shade, #yayaTab would always say: "Ma'am, di ko type yan, mas bagay sayo ang brown!" #Harsh :P

But for some reason, I feel more confident and more put together whenever I wear any lipstick with brown tone to it!  It just works maybe with my current hair color, skin complexion and choice of fashion?

When BLK Universal was launched, I was drawn to their All-Day Lip in Toffee.  I love this so much I use this same lipstick on my cheeks whenever I am in between work and meetings and needed some extra boost of color!

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation Review

I first talked about the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF40 PA+++ on IG stories.  At the back of my head as I was talking to you guys, I was also thinking: "Is this a new launch?  Why have I seen this bottle from a couple of years ago?  Is this new or reformulated?"

I've always been a fan of the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless foundation, but if you want something literally there not only as makeup but skincare, check this out because this product benefits you as both skincare and makeup!

And to answer my previous question, this is the same product launched a couple of  years ago but well-deserved for some special attention.

What's Up Doc?

Carrot Wash and Carrot Cream!

I can't stop thinking about a fresh carrot vegetable whenever I use the newest skincare line from The Body Shop!

If you are like me who loves roaming around a Beauty Store, you've probably noticed that the Carrot line from The Body Shop has been around years ago!  I vaguely remember seeing them on shelves then POOFED they went!

I guess they are now back and better!  I mean brands who discontinue something and return something means ---

  • People loved it and missed it so much they requested for the brand to bring it back.
  • They wanted to do some changes and obviously, the change must be good!
Either way, I love it that I was able to try out this product.
