“Never Ask a Woman with Winged Eyeliner Why She’s Late”

12 Dec

I love that quote because it’s so true. So many days of the week I get to work by the skin of my teeth (what a disgusting expression, where did it even come from?) ONLY because I had to take that extra few minutes (ahem 20) to make my eyeliner juuuust right.

You know when people ask you about that one beauty item you just have to have with you if you’re trapped on a desert island? Well for me, it’s eyeliner. Liquid eyeliner to be exact and NARS Eyeliner Stylo, Carpates, if we’re going to be very specific. I discovered it about a year and a half ago – on my boyfriends’ cousins eyelid…sorry for that weird image. This girl is always a 10, hair perfect, makeup flawless and outfit to die for. And then there’s me. Now don’t get me wrong, I have my sh*t together as well but I don’t have a steady hand and never could work those liquid liners the way Adele can.

Naturally, I asked my eyeliner role model what liner she used and I got the holy grail of information – Nars Stylo. So what did I do? Immediately make my way to the nearest Sephora and buy myself the very same eyeliner.

Since then, i’ve only had to replace the eyeliner once – that’s how long it last. My current stylo, did you know that means “pen” in french, is starting to run low but from day 1 to day empty, the eyeliner is consistent and always flawless. I think the pen design is what makes it so easy to apply, it’s much steadier and the liner just glides on your eye. I don’t see myself making a switch any time soon.

Ladies, if your liquid eyeliner skills are less than impressive – try out the Nars Stylo eyeliner, I highly recommend it and I doubt you will be disappointed. If you do, let me know how you like it!
