Estee Lauder Pure Color Intense Kajal EyeLiner

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

With eyeliner you can transform the shape and the size of your eyes. And when you want a dramatic look, waxy formulas can take some serious effort to show up on your skin. We tried Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Intense Kajal EyeLiner in Blackened Black since it was advertised to give intense color. This product saves time; you don’t have to line your eyes more than once to see great color. It’s a regular pencil that must be sharpened but the liner blends easily and goes on soft. On the downside, you need to be careful when using it on the lower rims of your eyes – you can get specks or smearing. Because the eyeliner is so intense, if you’re not a pro you may want to start out light at first and then press down harder as you get more comfortable. In short, we thought this $20 was great for smoky eyes but wish it flaked less.

Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Mascara

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

At Free Beauty Events we love trying out the latest mascara. This time, we tried Maybelline’s Volum’ Express the Colossal Mascara. This promises to give 9x the volume instantly with one coat. We found one coat to be enough for day, and we were surprised to see that we got a more natural look. With a name like ‘Volum’ Express the Colossal’ you might expect a more false lash look, but this is not a high drama mascara. As promised it went on clump free (which can be an issue with volumizing mascara). In our opinion, this gives the same effect as their Great Lash Mascara. But we liked that the Volum’ Express is collagen enriched – excellent for your lashes. To see other mascaras we’ve reviewed click here.

Tip: Mascara also works great as liquid eyeliner. Buy a slim eyeliner brush such as the e.l.f Studio Angled Eyeliner Brush and insert it in your mascara tube. It’s just $3.00 and you can use it to turn all of your mascaras into double-duty products!

Revlon CustomEyes Shadow & Liner

Monday, June 27th, 2011

The smoky eye look doesn’t always have to be gray and black eyeshadow. With Revlon’s CustomEyes Shadow & Liner palette in Smoky Sexy, you can get a smoky look with blues and grays. This palette has four eyeshadows and a fifth color that you can use as eyeliner. We really liked the bright take on smoky eyes for the summer. However, since these are vibrant blue hues, it will look more tame if you take the pointed end of the applicator and use the black shade to frame the eye. These shadows are not highly pigmented, so if you’re looking for more oomph try dampening the sponge applicator that comes with the set before applying your eyeshadow.

Max Factor MAXeye Liner

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Max Factor (Maximilian Faktorowicz) was one of the first movie set makeup artists in the 1920’s, and created a line of cosmetics that has flourished for over 100 years. However, MaxFactor will no longer be on U.S. store shelves starting January 2010.
To avoid the shipping costs of buying Max Factor from overseas, you should stock up now. One of our favorite must haves from Max Factor is the MAXeye Liner in shade 100 Night Club. No smoky eye is complete without a dark eyeliner, and with this one you get a true black with one stroke. This pigment rich eyeliner is also self sharpening; you don’t have to lug a sharpener around in your makeup bag. We will miss seeing Max Factor in stores in the U.S., but fortunately, it’s a top seller in countries such as the United Kingdom and Russia.
