MAC Art Supplies Haul

I went a little crazy and hauled quite a few items from the MAC Art Supplies collection. I posted swatches here of all the liners and greasepaint sticks.

If I were to do a giveaway with this collection, what product would you want? I’m talking from the entire line. Let me know in the comments. I’m thinking of doing one…

Here’s what I got from this collection plus a couple other things 🙂 As always, click on the photos for full size.

Top to bottom- Dirty GPS, Zinc Zone GPS, Petrol Blue e/l, Industrial e/l, Black Line e/l, Designer Purple e/l

With flash- Left to right: Petrol Blue, Industrial, Black Line, Designer Purple

I also bought transparent finishing powder, concealer (I’d heard good things about this one so I wanted to try it out), Mineralize Foundation in NW20, MAC 249 Brush, MAC 189 Brush.

I bought the 249 brush to use with the greasepaint sticks. Since they dry so fast I wanted to use something bigger than the 242 brush that I’d normally use. I also bought the 189 brush over the 190 since the 190 has a tendency to streak.

Review: Milani Liquif’Eye Eye Liner Pencil

I got the opportunity to try out Milani’s Liquif’Eye eyeliner for the past couple of days. You know you must like something when you drive back to Target the next day to pick it up in every dang color they make.  Apparently, it was a hot item since the only color available the next day was gold.

Quick take– cheap and wonderful, A+ product!

Milani promises: Extremely smooth eye pencil with the application and feel of a liquid liner that delivers true color payoff, in a metallic finish with a long-lasting wear.

Directions on the package indicate that the liner sets in 15 seconds. I applied two lines on my hand, one I smudged, and after 15 seconds I tried to smudge both lines but neither were having any of that.

The liner went on extremely creamy, allowing me to smudge it as I liked. After 15 seconds, that stuff was unbudgeable. I wore it all day long and by nighttime it still looked as if I’d just applied it, except for in the inner part of the eyelid where I’d been rubbing my eyes (allergies). I would as far to say it outperforms Urban Decays 24/7 liners (my favorite). It also performed extremely well in the waterline but I don’t have a picture of that.

Here’s what my liner looked like 8 hours after applying it in the morning. (Blah neutral eye day, I only lined the  under eye halfway.)

Milani Liquif’Eye Eye Liner Pencil comes in black, brown, gold, aqua, and silver. The package says these liners are metallic but  just found the brown pencil to have a slight sheen to it, nothing metallic. I found this item at Target for $4.99 but they sell it at CVS as well.
