The other day, we checked out some colored mascaras from a drugstore brand, Maybelline. Today, we have butter London’s NEW cosmetics line (which has mascaras, eye pencils, blushes, lipsticks, and more) – and I have 2 products from that line – a mascara and an eye pencil. Both colors are out of the ordinary, and very vivid. Let’s take a look and then I will fill you in with ALL my opinions! 🙂
First of all, CUTE packaging!
I do love the fact that you can see how much mascara is left! The eye pencil is cute, as well! I would prefer the twist-up method rather than having to sharpen, though!
The eye pencil in Pistol Pink was soft and I felt that after I lined my eyes, it kind of was impossible to get any more sharp lines. I did attempt a leopard look on my eye, and it was kind of a fail (which I’ll share with you at the end). The color was pigmented and it was not tough to get the color to deposit on my waterline, which really made me glad because I was a little afraid of dragging, but there was none of that involved (thank goodness!). The color itself was out of the ordinary for me, but it was fun and edgy and I would definitely use it for artwork over eyeshadow. After I lined my eyes, it is already ready for sharpening. Also, this shade once dried is waterproof and does not budge. To remove, I used the Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover and it swiped off easily.
Jaded Jack mascara is WOW because it’s a lime green (a gorgeous shade, at that) and definitely a showstopping shade. I was definitely floored by the pigmentation of this mascara because I did not wear a mascara primer, and it really colored my black eyelashes and made them look out of this world. I definitely enjoyed wearing this shade, but it’s definitely not for me; although, I can see myself using this for special occasions, such as Halloween. Definitely an interesting shade – the applicator of the mascara was easy to use but I sort of wish it was curved for a better application. The mascara itself dried quickly and felt dry and crunchy on the eyelashes. To remove, I used Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover, and it was easy to remove, which was a relief. I really would love to try the other shades of mascara, though.
NOTE: I also do layer on my mascara from inside out. Lower lashes show one coat of mascara.
Now, for the entire look! First, let’s look at the FAILED Leopard Print Eyes. 🙂 (P.S. On the lips is Queen Vic, a butter London Lippy)
And, then a fun pop using grey eyeshadow and these beautiful colors.
And, a closeup of the eye look:
What do you think of these? Are these showstopping shades on your wishlist?
