Story Book Cosmetics Quill and Ink Set Review

2017-10-27 12.22.08

I am in love with Story Book Cosmetics designs. It’s everything I ever wanted a beauty product to look like. However what we need to know is that yeah It looks pretty but does it work well? So I got this recently on a sale from their website. I also got free shipping because I bought a couple of things. I know I am technically on a buying ban with the whole house thing but I really needed this!

Before we get to the nitty gritty of this review lets just admire the look of this yea?

First of all it comes in this gorgeous tin as a set and I had to stand and just admire the look when I first opened it.

This brush is gorgeous and extremely soft bristled. It reminded me more of a lip brush than a line brush though.  I love that it comes with a base, but I got to make sure that I clean it before putting it away because I don’t want any gunk getting in to the base as it so tiny I think it will be hard to clean.

While I love the look of the ink pot I have to say I was extremely disappointed at the size. This thing is tiny! A lot of people have complained about the lid not staying on, so far I have yet to have any problems with that. I do know that they revamped the top to make it a proper twist top and while not as pretty it apparently works well. Right now the only color they have is black but they are working on different colors and the next model will be able to be refillable. Anyone who purchased the old pot (this one) will get a discount on the refill purchase.

The big question though is how well does it work? My answer, not very well. The brush is way too soft that it cannot be used with the ink pot at all. Plus the formula for this is very dry so it makes it hard to spread on the lids. I had to go over that line a couple of times (with one of my sturdier brushes) for it to even make that line. Do I regret buying it? Absolutely not! I will say though that until they improve the formula this is no where near ready to replace any of my other liners.

What do you think?

Ménage à trois

too Faced Lash lining 2015-12-27 09.52.35 2015-12-27 09.53.40

I may have mislead you kittens. This post is not about sex, I won’t be suddenly giving out the juicy details on that part of my life.

No, I’m here to bring to you Too Faced 3 way lash lining too eyeliner (is it just me or are names getting super long?)

This eyeliner can be used three ways

  1. Lash Emphasizing
    Dot  between lases for a fuller lash line
  2. Tight lining
    Drawing a tight line alone the water line
  3. Eye Lining
    Triple tip lings for a think rich black line

So I won’t beat around the bush, I love this liner. It is my new must have, must us, just it’s a must! Although a bit unusual with it’s three tips, it was super easy to use. The application was smooth, the black is super pigmented, and it stay put all day with no smudges.

I don’t think I have to tell you what my bottom line is (Buy it!).

One thing I will say is that it’s on the pricey side, but this is one of those products where the quality shines through!

So, What liner are you currently crushing on?

ELF Precision Liquid Eyeliner Review

ELF precision Liquid Liner

Hey kittens!

So I’ve recently been wanting to try out more liquid liners, but with my current money situation (or lack there of ) I haven’t had a chance to purchase any new liners. Thank you ELF and their affordable cosmetics.

I’ve recently obtained their Precision Liquid Eyeliner in black and to be honest I’ve had my doubts. While I absolutely adore most of their products I have not had any luck with any of their liners. I’m not sure if it’s because my lids are oily or their formula is wonky, but most of their liners smear, crack or run and by the end of the day I look a mess. Read more

Sephora Haul

So The Venetian in Vegas has a Sephora right on the strip so when I passed by you know I had to walk in. This sephora was big and unfortunately I did not take pictures of the store itself I did purchase a couple of products. I’ve been looking for a nice liquid liner to use and I loved my felt tip Kat Von D Tattoo liner, but I was thinking of repurchasing it, but changed my mind and decided to buy something else.
