Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner Pencil

For some odd reason I haven't blogged about the Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner Pencil yet. I've owned the black one for quite a while now, and it's the creamiest, blackest and smoothest black eyeliner pencil I have in my collection, no joke. You can smudge it before it sets, but when it has set.. it stays. It doesn't irritate my eyes, I can use it while wearing contacts, and it doesn't leave me looking like a raccoon. I find it kind of funny as these pencils cost £6.00, or 56,- NOK with today's exchange rate, but it's hands down one of the best black eyeliner pencils I've tried. And quite inexpensive! You can also be lucky enough to catch them on sale, like the one Avon has now where they offer these pencils at £3.00 a piece. A bargain, and definitely worth the money.

Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner Pencil: Silver, Golden Fawn and Cobalt

Because I love my black SuperShock pencil I decided to look for a few other colors as well; «Silver», «Golden Fawn» and «Cobalt». The first and the last are quite self-explanatory, but «Golden Fawn» is just a gorgeous light metallic taupe. I have seen it compared to, and called a dupe for Chanel Rose Platine, although without the pink tinge. Taupe seems to be somewhat of a magic word, because everything taupe has to be checked out if you ask me. I looove these pencils, and I'll add swatches when I regain access to my camera and photo lights.

Have you tried any of the Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner Pencils?

Haul: Rouge in Love and a weird eyeliner?

I haven't had the frequent visits from Mr. Postman lately, and strangely enough it feels fine. I did however order two things from FeelUnique a week ago, and today a tiny package arrived in my mailbox. As usual I ripped it open with passion, and inside I found one Lancôme Rouge in Love lipstick in 159B «Rouge in Love», which is supposed to be the lipstick that gorgeous Emma Watson wears in the ad, and a Clarins 3-Dot Liner in 01 «Black».

One lipstick I have fallen deeply in love with is the Lancôme Rouge in Love, no pun intended. A while back I purchased a lipstick from the mood range named Boudoir Time; 146B «Miss Coquelicot» - and here's what Lancome says about this mood; «Trendy, punchy 'it' shades that give color to the lips thanks to the intense contrasted mother-of-pearl. These shades offer an intense bright color reflection. Perfect to start the evening right.».

It's not an overwhelmingly pigmented lipstick, and it doesn't look like you've piled color onto your lips when wearing it, but it still gives of a lot of radiant color - and the orange 146B is perfect in my opinion. So when I was going to order from FeelUnique anyway I quickly popped 159B «Rouge in Love» into my cart, and I can't say I regret it! I could have talked about these lipsticks forever, but I'll do a more thorough review in a separate post - and try to add swatches as well.

Clarins 3-Dot Liner

I saw the liner mentioned by Fleur De Force about a week ago, and I was intrigued. It's not your traditional eyeliner, but it's designed to fill in the spaces between your lashes, accentuating your eyes and adding volume to your lashes. If you want to see it in action, click the link above. Maybe it'll do absolutely nothing, or maybe it'll be a fun product to try out. It is however limited edition, so I have no idea how long it'll be available. It might be best not to fall in love with it.
