You may have noticed that some of the recent reviews have crappy pictures. It's a sore spot for me lately, ugh. I tinkered with my camera's settings but I didn't notice how shitty the product shots are until I started post-processing them.
I can't stand grainy, blurry pictures on my website. However, I don't have time to shoot them again because (1) the items have been used, (2) scattered around the house and (3) THERE'S A LOT OF THEM. So. Please bear with me while I finish off the last two batches of pictures. I hope you can squint when you look at them.
Feels good to vent!
Moving forward. Here's the latest local development from one of my fave eyeliner brands: Eye of Horus recently launched a bigger selection of products and more retail locations! You can now find EoH in a few Snoe Beauty branches aside from the online store of Glamourbox.
The new products include some eyeshadow palettes, a liquid eyeliner (which I will review separately), and new colors of their best-selling pencil eyeliner. I love it and have already done a full review, so now I'll just show you pictures and swatches of two awesome new shades!
Okay, you know I love colored eyeliner as a quick way to get some color onto my lids, but I know that you're not yet completely sold on the idea. One way to ease yourself into bright shades would be applying subdued, yet beautiful eyeliners that flash a certain way in the right light.
Try something bronze like the Eye of Horus Goddess Pencil in Bronze Amulet (P990). It's a dark, reddish brown with metallic shimmer. Use it as eyeliner or as a cream eyeshadow; just smudge it with the sponge tip!
This is more useful than you think! Aside from softening your eyeliner, it can help create a quick smoky eye
Bronze Amulet | Serpentine Sultry
If you want something more intense, you can try the Serpentine Sultry Goddess Pencil (P990). This is a dark olive green with gold shimmer. It's a great way to bring out the brown of your eyes.
Bronze Amulet as eyeliner
I love creaminess and staying power of these pencils, but I just have one new observation now that I've had mine for the better part of the year. These are kinda like gel eyeliners in that they tend to dry up if you don't close the cap properly or sharpen them every so often. You just need to keep track of where and how you store them if you want them to keep that creamy texture.
The sponge tip also needs to be cleaned after a while. The product crusts on the sponge so it becomes practically useless. Clean it with a piece of cotton soaked in makeup remover!
Overall, I highly recommend these pencils if you want something you can smudge yet will not, you know, actually become a smudgy mess later in the day. Love these eyeliners!
Have I convinced you to try colored eyeliners yet?
