So I picked up 2 Pearlglide Intense Eye Liners from MAC's Art Supplies collection. There was NOTHING else in that collection that caught my eye. Everything was very "mehh" to me. I've been wanting a good navy blue liner ever since seeing Holly's Fly-By-Blue tutorial (which you can watch: here ) Disclaimer: I ♥ Holly's tutorials. I am in no way trying to be like her as some people have claimed *rolleyes* Hello, Holly is effing hot and knows how to do makeup, DUH. We are all influenced by other people and what not, geez. Anyways!
The two Pearlgides I got were Petrol Blue (reminded me of Fly By Blue) and Designer Purple. They are $14.50 each.
- great color payoff
- colors are vibrant, but not too insanely bright for everyday wear (such as to work!)
- the shimmer isn't crazy noticeable until you're up close
- have to sharpen them alot, thus using a lot of product to line just ONE eye..and if you go heavy on eyeliner (like me) you'll through this stuff fast.
- can't use this stuff alone, it smudges all over the place (beware asian lids!). i had to use UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion) and then line my eyes with MAC Fluid Line in Blacktrack, then go over it with the Pearlglide liner.
I really really really liked this one when I swatched it at the MAC counter.
I know you can't see the shimmer in these photos, sorry :[
However - when I actually lined my eyes with it, it didn't stand out that much. It probably would without using MAC Fluidline first, but it smudged all over my damn eyelids. Perhaps this would work better for those with green eyes?
love love love this Petrol Blue. Look at how dull it is! I didn't resharpen after using it this morning.
Fleur De Lys tonight ! I'm soooo stoked because us foodies ♥ Chef Hubert Keller. Then i'm going to Pesce on Friday night. Except lots of food pictures within the next couple of entries. I ♥ French food and seafood so very much! Oh, not to mention i'm seeing Alicia Keys and Robin Thicke on saturday. Jealous?
P.P.S. Mystery box coming soon...to you? Perhaps. Maybe, maybe not...
Okay.. P.P.P.S I'm bored right now.
Had my camera during lunch so yeah. My favorite salad of all time! Smoked trout salad from La Boulange. They have multiple locations in San Francisco but the Hayes Valley one is my favorite :]
