Being completely obsessed with cosmetics, I see it as my duty to buy everything from Stila to Wet and Wild. Recently I have been on the search for the perfect eye liner. This is actually a continuing search...I'm always open to try anything recently birthed into the cosmetic world, just clean the placenta off first please.
Now it's important for you to understand that I'm not looking for a regular eye liner...my criteria is extensive. I'm looking for color, manageability, is it portable? What types of lines can I make...thick...thin...dotted? Is it appropriate for daily use? Is it a pencil? Liquid? Matte? Gel?
Well I think I've found the eyeliner that fits all of my qualms and in a drugstore surprisingly.
Loreal H.I.P. line makes a pot gel eye liner. I was skeptical...I was. I have been a fan of Studio Gear for a while, but the problem with their pot eye liner is that I needed water to wet the brush in order to use it. Without a water source, I was doomed. This my friends, is the answer.
I purchased the brown shade, but there is a large variety of funky colors including teal and eggplant. It goes on smoothly and stays on all day long. The only thing I do not like is the brush it comes with but I already have a Bare Essentials brush anyway.
Try it. It's awesome. You will not be disappointed. And if you are, well...I'm sorry.
Link: The Write Brain Workbook
Let me get one thing straight: I love to write. I really do. But sometimes it’s really hard to get started on a short story, screenplay, or sometimes even a poem because of the dreaded writers block. Everyone who writes has had it, whether it happens at the start of a project, or in the middle of it. We all know it’s a pain.
The book is funky and fresh and meant to make writing more fun. I certainly find that it gets me going and usually when I get an idea from it I run with it. If you’re the type of person who has a hard time writing something without an assignment, you might want to pick up a copy.
I'd like to tell you that this all changes in time, but it actually doesn't. Which makes it even more important to seek a career that you love.. Then, at least the majority of the time, you'll be content, if not happy.
Patience is a virtue, not that that ever makes us feel any better. But maybe we just need to take it with a grain of salt.
