The topic for this week's Illustration Friday is Magic. Must explain the pic above. I used to have a problem with finding the perfect eyeliner. Whatever eyeliner that I use, be it the waterproof or smudgeproof or liquid eye make-up that won't budge ones - they would just smudge within the hour of putting them on! Correction-within the MINUTE of putting them on. There would always be a line of eyeliner on the crease of my eyelid, after the initial shut-open-shut eyes ritual post- eyeliner-application. Hated that!
Even when the smudge-look started being in style, my 'natural' smudge-look was not the right look! After much complaining to product-pushers at the make-up counters, I was told I have sweaty eye-area (?). Hence, no eye liner could stick on my eyelids. But, I shouldn't fret because the smudge-look is in, yadda yadda yadda. "Aaaaaah! But I want the Cleopatra look!"
And I can now! Thanks to Stila's Smudge Pots! It comes in a few colours. Mine's black and it works like magic on my eyelids! It stays put even when I cry or perspire or rub my eye(s)...and the only thing that could effectively remove those magical Smudge Pots is either Johnson&Johnson's baby oil (for a cheap solution) or a proper eye make-up remover (which is definitely more exp than baby oil). If you have neither, be rest assured you would look like a tired raccoon the next day (if all you did was to wash your face with facial cleanser to remove the ever-magical-Smudge Pots) or even longer until you actually use the proper remover. Luv it, luv it, lurrrrv it!
