I've whinged before about my annoying lack of lashes -- you know, I have just seven of them, three on one lid, four on the other? And they like to switch lids without telling? My mum has sparse lashes, too -- she's not a fan of how they look if she wears mascara: like skinny little spikes with too much space between them, I think she said. And yep, I have the same issue.
But black liner along the inner rim of my upper lid at the base of said sparse lashes says nyah-nyah-nyah to that.
Regular liner becomes a mess right quick if it's worn this way, so I'm into budge-not formulas. I'm pretty happy with the Waterproof Eyeliner ($16) from Canadian company Lise Watier because it glides on easily, with satisfying intensity, and has good staying power.
I've added a new gloss to my faves, and it isn't a watermelon shade. Lise Watier Plumpissimo Gloss in Nude ($20) is a neutral pink with subtle gold shimmer. Packed with hydrating hyaluronic acid, the gloss tingles ever so slightly at first and is surprisingly comfortable yet long lasting. I get compliments when I wear it, and comfortable + compliments = love.
Now this next one, Lise Watier Havana Dry Oil Body Glow ($38), is a tough sell to the average woman -- that is, the woman who considers herself average. Only insanely gorgeous amazons like Giselle BÃ¼ndchen, or trendy, shiny chippies like Lauren Conrad, or movie stars like Charlize Theron can wear shimmery golden-bronze stuff on their skin and look great, right?
Well nyah, nyah, nyah to that too. I smoothed this silky, fragrant oil on my skin and promptly swanned around my apartment feelin' all sexy-like. Uh... the important thing here is that it made me feel good (looked good on the skin, too), despite the vanilla-ish scent, which has never been a favourite scent of mine. I'm so going to wear this dry oil when I go out. I'm sure Clive-O won't mind if the shimmer rubs off on him some.
