Waterproof Eyeliner Review: Kat Von D ‘Ink Liner’

Kat Von D 'Ink Liner', Trooper (Ultra Black), $19.    In my original post, Best Long-Wearing Liquid Eyeliners, I mentioned that I had tried pretty much every liquid liner that claims to be long wearing or waterproof.

How-To: Waterproof Any Mascara

I am a huge fan of waterproof makeup because I have really watery eyes from allergies and can't stand runny makeup. But, we all have favorite products and, if you're like me, just wish that they were waterproof (i.e. Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara, why are you not waterproof?!). Well, your wish just came… Continue reading How-To: Waterproof Any Mascara

My Top Favorite Fragrances 2016

All-Time Favorite Perfume: 'Flowerbomb' by Viktor & Rolf 3.4 fl oz, $165. 'Flowerbomb' has to be my all time favorite scent!

Best Longest Wearing, Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

AND THE WINNER IS....MAC LiquidLast Liner, 2.5ml, $20 This stuff seriously stays on all day! Although it does not claim to be waterproof, only 'long-wearing', I would consider this formula waterproof because even after I shower and wash my face there's still product left behind.
