Eye Love Thee...

First off, I would like to make one thing clear.  This is not an attempt at shifting into beauty blogging.  I never write about my personal superficial finds.  Although I do keep them high up on a pedestal when they do me good.  Which is very rare.  I'm a bad shopper.

But lo and behold, I got lucky this time.  Three for three!  Yes, that's huge for me.  And so a-blogging I will go!

Enter Styli-Style!  This has been on my list of favorite things for a couple of months now.  Its thin eyeliner does great line work --clean, sharp, dark.  Its Smokey Eyes pudgy version does wonderful coverage.  Just one swish and you get an even lid coat.  And it's matte gray.  None of that shimmering nonsense.  At Php600 a pop, that's value for your money.  That is, if you like it dark and heavy.  And no, kids, it's not an emo thing.  Geez.

The best thing to go with this pair is the Styli-Style Sharpener, of course.  It's winged.  It sharpens thin liners on one end and thick liners on the other.  This P220 baby sharpens like a boss, too!  It doesn't eat your liner whole and it says goodbye to splinters in your eyeballs!  It gives you a clean surface and a soft, rounded tip for easy smudging.

Now, Styli-Style is water-proof, sweat-proof, stress-proof (makes you wonder why I fell in love with it, huh?)  So it does take a lot of effort to get it out of your skin.  Until this bold, new discovery, that is --Shu Uemura Skin Purifier!  It's a cleansing oil to die for.  No, really!  It easily strips away every bit of make up and leaves your skin with that lovely, healthy glow.  And you don't end up an oily mess either.
One itty bitty factoid:  I do get carried away when I blacken my crease line and lids.  I love it when my eyes pop out and when I look scarier than I actually am.  Haha!  So Shu Uemura is perfect for this kind of psychotic setback.
PS.  Shu Uemura being Shu Uemura, this should be pricey.  But yeah, I got it for free.  *cyber fist bumps*

And there it is!  My perfectly lined eyes in a terribly angled photo.  Like I said, I'm not aiming to be a beauty blogger.  But you do get my point.  These eyes stay on for the whole 9 to 5, by the way.  I do retouching only once.  But only because I live in a tropical country.  These babies should stay on for like weeks in colder climate.  Woohoo!

Since I'm feeling generous today. I'm throwing in a fourth fab find into the mix.
Itty bitty factoid two:  I love sculpting my hair and defying gravity.  Must be my inner Anime geek seeping through.  David's Salon's Holding Clay serves as a reliable accomplice for this kind of rebellious feat.  Just a little smidgen of the clay and your hair will flip, spike, stand as much as you like, longer than planned --for only Php120!  It's not greasy or leaves your hair as unglamorously hard as stalactites.  My hair is incredibly soft in this clay.  It's held, but soft.  It's a mystery.
And no, kids, it's not a K-Pop thing.  Geez.
