31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 10

10 Oct

Yay Day 10! So far I’ve managed to keep on top of it, woop woop.

After yesterday’s laborious task of rainbows, I wanted something quick and comfortable today for gradients. So I went with my tried and true sponging technique, which is different to the other gradient sponging techniques out there. Mine doesn’t really create a true gradient, but I love it. It’s a little bit different, just like me 😉

This is China Glaze Starboard, with Revlon Copper Penny. I went for the green because it was on my desk staring me in the face, and I always seem to wear blues (when I’m not rocking the nudes). When I do blue gradients, I tend to have gold or silver tips, and my poor little bottle of Copper Penny was all, “Pick me! Pick me!” at me. So I caved. I actually really love this combo, and hey, copper coins go green over time right?!

So it was totally inspired and planned out. Not randomly decided by what was on my desk. No no, that’s crazy talk!

KleanColor Alter Ego Metallic Eyeliner – Swatches and Reviews

16 Jan

Evening lovely readers!

Hope you all have been well. I have been home the last day and a half from work -_- Nothing too major just feeling like I’ve been run over my a truck. I don’t think I’ve been looking after myself the very best, but Gabby has been looking after me.

So today’s post is a quick review and gratuitous amounts of photos of our new KleanColor Alter Ego Metallic Eyeliner Duo.

We picked these up Saturday when we went to Henderson Mall from the 123 Mart. They were each $3.90, what a steal!. There are seven colours all together: teal, purple, blue, silver, gold, copper and black. We brought purple, blue, gold, copper and black, with of course a plan to pick up all the other colours too. Each liner comes with both a pencil and a liquid liner, which looks good together or separate.

For a dollar store find I am very impressed with the quality of these liners. Even though we use KleanColor nail lacquer, the rest of a brand is a mystery to us. Whether expensive, mid range or cheap, there is no guarantee that the entire range will be any good.

The pigment of all the colours is just right, I was a bit worried about how bold the colours would be but they are perfect. The colour isn’t too pale but it isn’t too over the top either. I also found the application was different to what I had experienced with any other liquid liner. The brush was a little bit shorter and did not flail about when you apply it to your eye lid, which meant there was little to no mess.

I would rate the liquid liner at four stars and the pencil and three and a half 🙂

Now time for your photos!
EDIT: Swatches are laid out liquid liner on to and then pencil on the bottom, except for black which is reversed.
