Maybelline Master Ink Liquid Eyeliners

Hello everyone!

I was on the hunt for a new liquid eyeliner after using up my current one. I was in Boots and walked past the Maybelline counter…picking up a trusty Lash Sensational, the Master Ink eyeliners caught my eye.

I was looking for a good, pigmented eyeliner and I was pleased to see they had a Matte eyeliner AND a black gold glitter one which was perfect for the make up I planned to do at my work Xmas do!

These sounded and looked so great, I was hopeful that they would live up to my expectations. The matte liner is wet and fabulously pigmented. With a matte liner, I was worried that it would end up looking a bit ashy but it doesn’t in the slightest. It’s not the most hard wearing eyeliner but if you leave it alone while it dries it lasts well enough.

The nib is very thin and easy to manipulate – doing a cat flick isn’t the easiest thing but practice will make perfect! That’s what I’m telling myself anyway…

The glitter eyeliner is lovely because it’s not just gold glitter – it’s black gold so you can use this on it’s own! I love the way this looks – the glitter is a slightly yellowy gold but it’s really beautiful. It adds just the right amount of sparkle and shimmer across the lid!

Here is a swatch of both of them side by side:

The black gold one is my favourite for special occasions but the matte version is still perfect for everyday!

I’m so chuffed with these and I think I’ll be repurchasing the matte one 🙂

I hope you’re all having a great Christmas so far!

Keep your eyes peeled for the third week of my Body Shop Advent Calendar!

Thanks for reading everyone,

The Outfit and Make Up I Wore to my Work Christmas Party!

Tis the season for office work parties, tra la la la la laaaa la la la la! The very meaningful decision of what to wear comes to the fore and you’re left with a predicament. This post is by no means a guide of what to wear but it will how you what I decided to wear to my work Christmas Party, and how to get the look if that’s what you’d like :).

When you have a work/office Christmas Party, consider the venue. Mine was quite a corporate event so I decided a black outfit was what I would go for. I wanted something smart but still quite glamorous, so I opted for a bardot style top, with an above knee length skirt that had a black feather frill. I love this little detail on this skirt – it just adds a touch of chicness to the outfit in a really subtle way. Paired with some nude platform high heels and a statement necklace, it’s a simple outfit but I think it looked quite appropriate! Ignore the dirty mirror…

Here are the shoes…which I did manage to walk in for ALMOST the whole night!:

For make up, I wanted some dark smokey eyes but paired with a very nude simple lip. For eyes, I used the MAC Painterly Paint Pot as my base and started to blend some Black from the Lorac Pro Palette into the crease.

I applied Matte Liquid Eyeliner from Maybelline along my lash line and did a small flick, and applied some Glitter Eyeliner (which is also from Maybelline) over the top. Lashes were Red Cherry Wispies and I smudged some of the black eyeshadow along my lower lash line too :).
