L'ORÉAL Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in 200 Black

"Indulge your eyes in silk. Glide on smooth intensity with our first silk inspired liquid pencil. Introducing Silkissime by Infallible. Our smudge-proof formula lasts for up to 16-hours of intense color from dusk until dawn." *Press Sample





L'oreal's Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner ($8.99; lorealparisusa.com) is a long-wear, waterproof liner that claims to deliver 16 hours of wear. I tried out Black, which is a rich, deep black with a slight glossy sheen. The texture is smooth, the liner glides on effortlessly - no tugging along the lash or waterline. Black is very pigmented as well - just one stroke deposits rich, pigmented color. If you do like your liner slightly smudged, there's quite a bit of time before it sets, making it super easy to work with. As for it lasting for 16 hrs, I definitely din't quite wear it for that long, but I could see some smearing around the 7 hr mark. Its quite creamy, so if you have oily lids, I'm pretty sure it would last much lesser than that. Also, Silkissime does sting when used on my waterline - within a few minutes, my eyes were itchy and quite watery. On the plus side, it is one of the blackest black eyeliners I've tried and really like the intense color payoff on my lash lines. If you have sensitive eyes, be sure to steer clear of the waterline. That apart,  its a good, budget-friendly liner to try!

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in RD321 (Ebi) | Shiseido Spring 2014

Shiesido has launched 7 new shades of the Lacquer Rouge as part of their Spring line up. RD321 Ebi ($25; shop.nordstrom.com), is a creamy, pinky red in one of the nicest liquid lipsticks formulas I've tried. *Press Sample






Ebi is a medium pink with no hint of shimmer or glitter - it has just the right amount of pink to perk up any complexion. There's enough color to cover up my pigmented lips, adding a lovely wash of pink with just a hint of shine. The texture is smooth, easy to work with, and unlike many other liquid lipsticks, its not drying. I get about 7-8 hours of wear with a lot of eating/drinking in between, and Ebi leaves behind a light berry stain before fading completely. Its a color you can dab on as a light stain or wear as a full on, bold pop of color. If you do like the Lacquer Rouge formula, Ebi is a beautiful color to have for Spring/Summer!
