Two Brands of Eyeshadow: Which One Wins?

Eyeshadow is my favorite makeup. I love the liquid kind, the shimmery powder, the semi-liquid, semi-hard kind, etc. I love it all. Here are two different brands of liquid eyeshadow that I have tested through all sorts of circumstances, even exercising, and I’m going to tell you which one is my favorite.

Georgi Armani

Georgi Armani’s Liquid Eyeshadow

This liquid eyeshadow is one of the best I’ve ever used. First of all, it’s very easy to apply. The brush is soft, making the application of the makeup so effortless it takes less than fifteen seconds to put on. Secondly, it dries very fast so you don’t have to worry about ruining the job you just did by accidentally rubbing your eyelids. Third, it’s very pretty. This color is a sort of greenish-grey shade and it shimmers in the light. It really makes your eyes pop and gives you a hint of glamor even if you’re wearing some jeans and a t-shirt. And most importantly of all, it’s waterproof. That’s very important, especially if you’re caught in the middle of a storm. If you’re wearing this eyeshadow you won’t have to fear any water. And it isn’t even expensive. In fact, it’s less than twenty dollars and that is surprising considering how great this eyeshadow is. If you don’t have this I highly recommend it.

Urban Decay

Urban Decay’s Moondust Eyeshadow

This eyeshadow is just as fantastic. Its brush isn’t as good, however, as Georgi Armani’s brush because it’s much smaller. In fact, it’s a little tricky to apply correctly. It takes me about twenty to thirty seconds for each eyelid but when applied it is stunning. The reason why it’s called Moondust is because of the very, very beautiful glow it brings to your eyes. The color is a bold white that glimmers and sparkles. If you wear it on a bright day your eyes will beam from the sunlight. Now, unlike the liquid eyeshadow from Georgi Armani, it is not waterproof. This is bad and good. It’s bad because you will not want to get caught out in the rain with this eyeshadow on and it’s good because if you don’t have any makeup remover all you have to do is take a tissue, wet it, and wipe it off. You can’t do that with the Georgi Armani liquid eyeshadow. And it’s also surprisingly cheap to be such a wonderful eyeshadow.

So which one is my favorite?

Georgi Armani and Urban Decay: Which One Prevails?

After using each of the brands for months and months I found that the Moondust eyeshadow was my favorite. If you’ve read my post about the Covergirl lipstick I’ve bought recently you’ll know that I love bold colors. Georgi Armani’s eyeshadow is beautiful, shimmery, and makes you look very classy but I love the bright white of the Moondust eyeshadow. It makes my eyes pop and looks even better if I’m wearing a predominantly white outfit. In fact, I love it so much that I’m going to get some more eyeshadow from Urban Decay to try out. Next time I want to get another vibrant color like purple or pink.

If you haven’t tried either of these liquid eyeshadows you should definitely check them out. They’re very glamorous and perfect to wear at any event, from going to a simple luncheon to maybe hanging out with the girls at night.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Have a beautiful day and thank you for reading.

 

My New Favorite Brand of Lipstick

It was my birthday and one of the gifts I received that fine day a few weeks ago was a small shopping spree for makeup. Now I love makeup, especially eyeshadow, but I also love lipstick. Lipstick is an expression, it shows how you’re feeling that day. If you want to be bold and noticed in the middle of a crowd you wear a vibrant red or a brass purple. If you want to be a little more subdued you wear more of a flesh colored lipstick. I’m a fan of bold lip colors and that’s why I saw in the Covergirl section this beautiful color called Spellbound.

Spellbound

The color is a bold hot pink and it is very pretty. And the color lasts for twenty-four hours easily. It’s such a strong dye that you can’t just wipe it off of your lips. You have to remove it with makeup removers or your lips will be pink all the way until the next day. I love that though because if I go to a restaurant and I want my lips to still be colored even after eating they will be. Here I am with the lipstick on.

This is me wearing Covergirl’s Spellbound shade.

I really love it and on my next makeup shopping spree, I’m going to get another shade to try. I’ve tried lip glosses from Revlon, lipsticks from Loreal, but none of them have impressed me as much as Covergirl’s has. And it doesn’t just keep your lips colored but it makes them soft as if you’ve put on chapstick which I deeply appreciate. You never want to have a dry lipstick that forces you to put on chapstick if you don’t want to look like a chapped mess.

If you love lipstick as much as I do you have to try this Covergirl lipstick. It keeps your lips moisturized, there are many beautiful shades, and it lasts for twenty-four hours.

Tomorrow I will talk about a variety of eyeshadows and I’m going to say which company is my favorite. If you love eye makeup you’ll won’t want to miss it. Have a beautiful day and thank you for reading my post.
