E.l.f Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil: Twinkle Teal - Swatches & Review

Hello guys! So a while ago I ordered some products from E.l.f and I tried everything. Today I wanted to review the shimmer eyeliner pencil in the color Twinkle Teal for you. It is a bright teal color with micro sparkles in it, it is creamy and soft, so it's good on your upper lashline. It lasted quite a bit, of course it's not like a Mac or a Urban Decay liner, but for the price (1 $ in the US and 1.70€ in Eu) it is a superb eyeliner. It is pretty pigmented as you can see in the photos, where I didn't have a primer underneath, only the twinkle teal and mascara.

Rate: 3.5/5


Nail polish of the week: Essence - Colour and Go in Enchanted Fairy

Hello guys! Last week I bought this nail polish by Essence and I really enjoyed it, so I thought I'd share it with you. It is called Enchanted Fairy and it is part of the Colour & Go line (permanent). It is a really pretty wearable nail polish, good for work, school and special occasions, neutral but at the same time fun. It is a baby pink with a hint of lilac and it has a satin finish to it. It lasted quite a bit, but I always put a top coat so I don't know how much it lasts on its own.

I hope you try it and if you do let me know what you think.

Pretty Little Liars Series: Hanna Inspired Makeup Look

Hello guys! I want to start a series of makeup looks inspired by the beautiful Pretty Little Liars girls. If you don't know what PLL is, it is a tv shows aboutthe lives of four girls — Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily — whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader,
Alison.Llater, they begin receiving various messages from someone using the name "A" who threatens to expose their secrets. I love this show, I especially love the fashion and the makeup the girls wear.

I'm going to start with my favourite character from the show, Hanna.

This is the makeup she often wears in the show, I hope you like it.

Products used:

1- First apply a primer all over your eye (I used ELF Eyelid Primer) and then apply Mac Indianwood Paint Pot (bronze cream eyeshadow) on the lid.

2- With a Shader brush apply Urban Decay Suspect (Book of Shadow 3) on your lid and blend it a bit up to the crease.

3-Then with an Angled Crease Brush apply Urban Decay Smog Eyeshadow (Book of Shadow 3, Bronze Color) in the crease. Blend the two colors together.

4- Apply a Matte Creamy Highlighter Shade on your browbone (I used Sephora n°08 Universal Beige)

5- Apply a matte soft orangy/brown shade over the Smog shadow.

6- Apply a brown eyeliner on your upper and lower lashes (Urban Decay Whiskey 24/7 liner) and Smudge it with a pencil brush.

7- Apply a light gold cool toned eyeshadow in the center of your lid, over the suspect just above your pupil (Urban Decay Maui Wowie eyeshadow Book of Shadows 3).

8- Apply a Gel Black Liner on your upper lashes line and flick the end a bit (Stila Smudge Pot Liner).

9- Apply a Gold Kohl liner on your waterline (Urban Decay Eldorado 24/7 Liner) and then apply Smog Suspect and Universal Beige under your lower lashes.

10- Curl your lashes, apply mascara (Mac Zoom Fast Black Lash) and false lashes if you want (The girls on PLL always wear them)....And...You're done!

Face: As a Blush I recommend a pinky natural blush, on the lips the perfect match is Mac Nymphette Lipglass (Pink nude with gold shimmer).

I hope you liked it! See you soon with the others inspired look :D
