Sephora Jumbo Waterproof Liners & Mac Bloggers Obsession Evolution Revolution Lipglass


One day in June, I was in a Sephora and picked up a couple of their Sephora Collection Jumbo Liner Waterproof 12 hour wear pencils. At only ten dollars each, I thought these could be a real steal if they live up to their name. Well, they do. They are waterproof and easily wear at least 12 hours without creasing. I was so impressed, I went back and got several more.

As you can see in the picture below, they are approximately the length of an iphone. In my picture, from left to right, are: 16 Glitter Black, 03 Grey, 07 Brown, 04 Taupe, 13 Marine, 15 Purple and 09 Kaki.


You can use these as liners, as shadow base or as shadow itself. It's up to you. And let me tell you that the glitter in the Glitter Black liner stays put...it doesn't budge!

I want to show you what I did the first day I tried them out...the day which convinced me to go back and buy more. I wore a very simple look of just two Jumbo Pencils and finished with Mac Bloggers Obsession Evolution Revolution.

Here's some closeups using Taupe and Grey on the eyes. I like these pictures because you can see the reflection of the swimming pool in my eyes. lol. Kinda cracks me up.


A closeup of Mac Evolution Revolution Lipglass is next. If you're still on the fence about whether to get this or not, you need to hurry because it's going to be off the website soon. Last call status!!

The standard couple of full face makeup shots to get an idea of the overall look:

So tell me, what have you tried from Sephora Collection? Have you tried these liners? Aren't the prices wonderful!?!?!

Mac Bloggers Obsession Sonoran Rain Lipglass Swatch and Review FOTD

Recently, Mac Cosmetics chose nine bloggers for a special collection of eyeshadows and lipglasses called Bloggers Obsession. Today I feature for you a lipglass created by blogger Aileen de los Angeles called Sonoran Rain. Read more about her inspiration on her website The Shades of U. This gloss was my lip of choice on July Fourth as I wore some red, white and blue and made it the focus of my face that day.

Sonoran Rain is described as a deep reddened coral with gold and silver shimmers. A close-up picture shows this well.


It was kind of a blustery day that day. I have some really hilarious photos of my hair flying in every direction, but I won't bore you with those, I'll just show you some typical "look at a full face shot of this gloss" photos.



On the eyes, I am wearing Sephora's jumbo waterproof liner pencils in Taupe and Grey. They wore very well with no creasing and I applied them without my usual eye prepping ritual. LORAC 3D was my mascara of choice. Dior Aurora glossed over my cheeks. Here's a closed eye picture so you can kind of see the pencils on the eyes.


I can't seem to help wrinkling my nose like a bunny in the sun. Maybe I need to try some kind of instant freeze thing to put on my nose/cheek before going outside to take photos. Who knows, maybe it could work?

I will review all the Blogger's Collection Lipglasses in one post, but I'm having a lot of fun working with them and I really feel that they seem to be superior in texture and wear to any regular lipglass that I've worn prior.
