Review of Maybelline Master Graphic

On to my eyeliner number two of the three liners I purchased: Maybelline Master Graphic:

“Liquid marker eyeliner for a bold graphic look”

Application: I bought this liquid liner because of the unique marker pen-like tip. The tip is hard enough to make it easy to apply a line which also makes it more difficult to make a wing. When I was finished, it looked quite ok.

Pigmentation: When it comes to pigmentation, unfortunately, this thing is a disappointment for me. I had to go over this line several times to build up a solid line:

Longevity: It doesn’t claim to be waterproof or anything, and my eyes do water a lot. By the end of the day, my liners were gone 😦 At least, it didn’t smear or smudge. It just kind of disappeared. This might be good enough for those of you that can “keep a liner” on the eyes. This is me by the end of the day:

Removing the liner: As I didn’t have much left on my lids, I barely removed any of it. But I can imagine that it is very easy to remove.

Final verdict: Definitely not a liner that can last on my lids, and the pigmentation is just not good enough. I wouldn’t repurchase it. However, if you’re a beginner, this might actually be a good liquid liner to start off with even it looks a bit chunky and scary.

See my previous post on Maybelline Maybelline Master Ink Matte here.

The next liner I will review will be Maybelline Master Duo.

Until next time!

Application of false lashes

One of my friends and follower –  MamaSine asked me to do a post on false eyelashes. I must admit that I’m not super trained on this field, but I gave it a try. It was a little difficult to take pictures of what I was doing, but I will list down below step by step what I did:

1. Take out the eyelash carefully and measure with your eyes so that you know how much to cut off. Rather cut too little than too much off because you can always go back and and cut again.

2. You need a good eyelash glue. I have heard good things about the Revlon eyelash glue. Paint the glue on and make sure to cover the ends well.

3. While waiting for the glue to become sticky(about 30-45 seconds), I curl my lashes.

And then we’ve got the hardest part – putting on the lash. You can use your fingers, a tweezer, or an eyelash applicator. I actually like to use the tweezer as you can dab the lashes in with the back of the tweezer. Other than that, we just need to practise.

Hold and lift the lashes for a few seconds while it’s drying to give them the right angle.

5. I applied a mascara concentrating at the roots just to hold up the curls and blend them with the false lashes. Try not to smudge it on the tips (of the false lashes).

6. Always make sure to have an eyelash glue and Q-tips with you in your bag. You never know when it starts to come off.

Please comment if any of you have any other great tips for false lashes application.

I hope this helped, Sine 😉
