You’ve probably seen the new L’Oreal HIP makeup offerings at your local drugstore… I couldn’t resist giving you all a review of my favorite new product: the Kohl Eyeliners.
Why do I love them so much?
Mainly because I FINALLY have a liner that stays put on my water line. I was one of those ladies that would line my waterline (the inner rim of your lower eyelid) when I’d create a smoky eye look and 2 minutes later… poof. The liner would be gone. I gave up.
The new HIP kohl liner actually stays put! On my lids too. I really love how they make a nice neat line that you can smudge, keep precise or do whatever. Plus the color is very pigmented and has just enough sparkle to make your eyes really pop.
What I didn’t love... the fallout. But I solved that by doing my lining first, then putting on my mineral makeup. The little felt type tip rubbed against my lashes and that’s what dropped the powder bits on my face. Like I said, easy enough fix, but just be aware. It’s certainly not enough to keep me from wearing these liners. I really really love the way my eyes look- Perfect for a night out!
On my eyes: L’Oreal HIP Kohl Eyeliner in Navy, L’Oreal Bare Natural Mascara in Black, Purely Cosmetics loose eyeshadow in Cotton Candy.
I basically lined my upper and lower lashline with HIP liner in Navy. Then ran a small liner brush over both lines to soften them. I lined my waterline to add depth to the look.
To add a bit more light- I applied Purely Cosmetics’ loose eyeshadow in Cotton Candy (a soft, sparkly pink) to the inner corners of my eyes.
Since the eye look is dark, I don’t believe you need extreme lashes. I used one coat of L’Oreal’s Bare Naturale mascara (my review is here) in Black.
L’Oreal HIP Kohl Eyeliners sell for $13 at your local drugstore or shop them at Drugstore.com ($13).
