The Eye Brightener – Sonia Kashuk Dramatically Brightening Kajal

Brighteneign Kajal 6

Let there be bright! At least when it comes to your eyes, that is. The Dramatically Brightening Kajal, which is part of the Sonia Kashuk Fall 2014 Collection (available exclusively at Target,) is a creamy white kohl liner that includes a blend of Rose and Mimosa waxes. The smudge-proof formula is meant to give a refreshed and illuminated effect to the eyes, making them appear brighter instantly.  It is applied on the inners corner of the eye and/or in the waterline. Packaging is lightweight and quite futuristic aesthetically with a firmly closing cap that doesn’t seem to pop off or try and run away like with other liners. What you see is what you get, there’s no twist top or further product than what’s visible, which I quite like about it, seems economical and there’s well enough of the product to last a good while – and no sharpening required! So there you have it folks, get bright!

The Waterproof Matte Brown Liner

The brown-bronze smokey shadow liner.  It’s a good one to have stowed away in the proverbial magic makeup carpet bag, but having tried to get my hands on Rimmel’s Scandeleyes Shadow Stick in ‘Bad Girl Bronze’ for a good few months (sold out in Shoppers Drug Marts across the land it seems) I officially gave up the search.  You know how once you stop looking for something it suddenly turns up?  Well, leave it to an unplanned visit to the mothership of makeup – Sephora – and this little, er, jumbo I should say, crayon found it’s way into my hands.  The Sephora Collection Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof in ‘Dark Brown Matte’ is great for many reasons, the formula is super pigmented and the crayon width doesn’t hinder the application process, it blends like a dream – perfect for a smudgy-smokey look (swatches included below) and finally, it’s matte! *cue angelic background music*
