Changing It Up: Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Eyeliner in Denim Ink

By bailaoragaditana · November 16, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

My "adventures" in changing up my makeup have been pretty boring, guys, I hate to say it! I'm feeling like this isn't quite enough now that I'm getting back into my stash!

This time: I've substituted my usual liner (MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy) on the waterline for Bobbi Brown's gel liner in Denim Ink, which I've had for ages and used precisely ONCE. It's a slightly shimmery, deep indigo color that's a bit more interesting than standard black but still subtle enough that you could easily get away with wearing it everyday in professional situations. 

It's a little softer than black, too - it almost looks like a charcoal gray in some lights. But it does a good job of defining without looking too harsh. And (as the name implies) it's pretty much budgeproof once it sets. (This entire look, by the way, lasted through an entire shower, including two face-washings, with no smudges. That's how waterproof Buxom Lash Waterproof is. The stuff is MIRACULOUS.)

(I gave up on getting a good pic of the liner behind glasses. This will have to do. But thanks for reading!)

All of the makeup I feature here is stuff I have bought myself or played with, or that has been given to me by friends and family as gifts (perhaps occasionally stuff that belongs to my friends, as well). I'm not a professional makeup artist, I've never worked for any companies that sell makeup, I have no connections to cosmetic companies, other than the standard relationship between junkie and dealer, and all opinions expressed in my posts are my own. Should a company, someday in the future, want to give me money or products, I'll be the first to say so, in nice big bold letters. I'll also let you know if I win products, as from the Sugar giveaways. Otherwise, you can safely assume it's all the result of my incurable addiction to beauty products.
