MAYBELLINE NEW YORK MASTER GRAPHIC LIQUID EYELINER: REVIEW| YAY OR NAY?

So this is undeniably an eyeliner, so I can start of by saying it lines the eyes…sometimes. Its temperamental nature leaves a nice ‘bold’ INVISIBLE  line above the lashes, completely contradicting the whole nature of the product. The packaging states:

“Liquid marker eyeliner for a bold graphic look.”

Without the ‘bold graphicness‘, the eyeliner is shaping up to be the equivalent of that sold in Poundland (*POUNDLAND PROMO: EYELINERS, MASCARAS, LIPSTICKS FOR ONLY £1, ROLL UP ROLL UP*).

However, on the rare occasions that it actually decides to do its job, the result can be somewhat satisfactory. As promised, the liner ACTUALLY LINES THE DAMN EYES, providing a bold, striking black line. The sloping head shape also aids application, and allows multiple styles to be easily drawn onto the eyelid. It looks a little something (exactly) like this:

So once you’ve actually got some colour out of the thing, you prey it will last until you are 71 to recoup the stress of the whole damn painful process. Well good news, although it pains me to say, the line is incredibly long lasting…providing you don’t wash for the next 7 decades. Waterproof is not a nature withheld by the product, and so any moisture may provide you with a larger line than desired, and covering a lot more of your face then anticipated…

Other pros of using this product run along the lines of: its bold black colour (when it is so kind to show its face…or however you mould the expression to fit a non living object- oh lord), its flat base, its resistance to clump, and last but most certainly not least it was made in Italy. I always get excited by the thought of a guy with a 10 foot moustache ringing cowbells making eyeliner pens- normal right?

….And the final look is one of about 10,028,264,739,102,837 ways to wear this type of eyeliner, but preferably don’t follow this striking but quite frankly overpowering example:

(I think the emphasis is on the precision of the line, not the fact she now has a 50/50 white:black ratio eyelid…)


Thank you for reading, passing by, or for just about anything I could find to thank you for!

7 OF THE BEST THINGS MONEY CAN BUY

I would like to think I have more money than sense, however in reality I am richer in sense than money…but unfortunately for me I don’t have a lot of that either. I prefer to spend my £6.50 weekly pocket money allowance on pizza duvet covers and emoji curtains than the basic necessities of life like knickers or socks. Consequently, as a result of my binge buying, my wish list shall remain a wish list until I have acquired about £50,000 via an extensive bank robbery (-or other more socially acceptable sources), so here is: my very wished-wish list of items and objects I will never own from a pre-summer hall in spring:

*WARNING: THE FOLLOWING PHOTOGRAPHY CONTAINS PICTURES FEATURING HIGHLY ‘OBSESS-ABLE’ PRODUCTS WHICH SOME VIEWERS MAY FIND IRRESISTIBLE*

1. Sleeping with pizza: duvet covers

89e959a939e63229279e08a871e57dcd

I appreciate my introduction to this item was a tad bizarre, and may or may not have sparked a wee kink on at least one persons mind. Perhaps it would have been more socially acceptable to title this ‘Sleeping in pizza‘- although that could also be interpreted in an unintended way. To any one who owns/ or longs to own a pizza duvet cover- I applaud you. You have such extreme self control not to order 15 boxes of Dominos every time you walk into your bedroom.

2. Emojis in real life- i.e. emoji cushions

3459091

I realise the smiling poo emoji tops the irresistable to-buy list, however the reality of having a grinning deposit laying beside you is somewhat strange. I urge you to choose from one of the other 476 emojis to cushion-ise from your emoji keyboard; like the heart eyes emoji- or whatever you would so label it. These are a great way to brighten your room, and obtain obsessive house fans from your visitors.

3. Mixed emotions cropped top- or should I say ’emoji-tions’…(sorry)

If it is fame you crave then this is your destiny. I guarantee walking around with this attire clinging to your chest will attract a few eyes- expect screaming- as I didn’t (did) do when I came across the fabulous creation. (Also, Freshtops have such fresh tops for sale- clever name really- I highly recommend you check them out- click http://www.fresh-tops.com/.)

4. Take a trip with emojis- the emoji backpack

I urge you not to wear the crop top on the same day or even in the same hour as using this bag- or you may be referred to a psychologist with serious concerns of a life threatening emoji obsession. I personally cannot resist this, if I look at this beautiful contraption for much longer I’m pretty sure I will turn into an emoji bag myself. Besides the emojis, these bags are also super comfortable (or ‘comfy’ as they say on the street).

5. Slice sleeper- The pizza sleeping bag

Food-Inspired-Cushions_6

This may stir up a slightly awkward and really rather uncomfortable situation when you arrive for a sleepover with a 10 foot pizza topped with 3 foot detachable mushrooms and broccoli- but you ‘only live once’ apparently. Hugging a giant broccoli is apparently very relaxing- or so the picture suggests. I’m unsure how comfortable this is, but comfort will be far down the list of priorities when your sleeping in a giant slice of mixed-veg pizza.

6. A burger on a bed- the burger duvet

20130109-burger-duvet-full

You may have gathered by now that I am a tinkle hungry writing this post- hence the past gazillion food related objects. This is an animated version of the pizza cover- besides the fact its not pizza, and animation isn’t precisely the terminology used to describe a real life photograph (< confused yet?). This is also a slightly more socially acceptable cover for your bed, meaning you will not be urged to hop up to the nearest burger king at every glance.

7. A grey day- cloud light and sound system

cloud-lamp-4

This will confuse the neighbours; its not everyday you witness a glowing rain cloud floating in the next door window playing ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift. This is more of a fantasy purchase that I’m not (I am) quite crazy enough to actually buy. The price is a little offputting- hence the reason I haven’t actually looked at the price yet, or even looked for the price, so my statement is only an assumption.

I realise it is highly unlikely I have any readers left- which is presuming I had any to begin with- after unintentionally urging them to go to every other webpage but this one. Even so I would just like to say thank you for reading- please spend responsibly (< is that off an advert?).
