Hi everyone.

I purchased this eyeliner by Milani a while back from an online store called Beautyjoint.
I loved these so much that I have recently re-ordered them.

Now I am sure you must be thinking whats so special about this isnt it just a regular eyeliner?

Its a Great eyeliner!!!

This is what Milani says about it on their website :
Sometimes the best choices are the ones you never have to make. With Liquid Eye, there’s no need to sacrifice a smooth, easy application in achieving that bold, liquid look. Color glides on effortlessly and stays in place for smudge-proof, long-lasting wear. Here at Milani, that means up to 24 hours! And because it’s naturally 100% paraben-free, you can be sure your bold look is also a gentle one.

These come in different shades : Black, Brown, Gold, Silver and Aqua.

Black is a truely rich, deep dark black. It’s an creamy matte black .
Silver is a bright and sparkly silver with a shiny metallic finish.
Gold is a pale burnished gold.
Aqua is a bright aqua-blue. Fresh with metallic sheen.

I initially ordered Black brown gold and silver so my review is on these shades
This time I have re-orded black and also Aqua! (Yippee).
Highly pigmented
super creamy
Easy to use.
The effect of a liquid liner in a pencil form!
You are able to sharpen them.
Beautiful shades to choose from!
Less Expensive than High end brands
Don’t smudge easily

Not available in South Africa
Available online only so you need to add-on postage and customs charges
Extremely creamy and soft so you need to be super careful when sharpen them.
Only washes off with eye makeup remover!

I love this product!
Please give it a try!

What Rimmel says about Vinyl Max Gloss
“IIntroducing Rimmel London Vinyl Max Lip Gloss. Full c
overage, high gloss-shine.

For louder, bigger, bolder and braver pouts, you’ve come to the right place. Discover a gloss that keeps lips soft and smooth, whilst magnifying and intensifying volume and colour. And for once, you don’t have to compromise on comfort. The innovative, voluptuous wand allows easy application. Just one effortless glide gives full coverage for maximum impact and ultimate shine. With a hot new formula that smoothes and plumps out lips, you can experience a luxurious feel in six incredible shades, ready for today, tonight and tomorrow in one fabulous instant.

It’s time to pump up the volume – go big, or go home.”

Some gorgeous colours to choose from including; Passion, Addictive, Desire, Muse, Excess and Dare..

My chosen one is DESIRE

I love the super sized applicator that makes applying gloss easier (no really, it does). One swipe is all you need. The slightly tapered flattered tip makes application much easier and precise as well.

The gloss has a soft vanilla scent . though it doesn’t have any taste once applied on the lips

The formula is very soft, smooth and not too thick..

The gloss doesn’t stay on too long maybe for an hour or two maximum. It doesn’t dry out my lips or leave a residue behind

Desire is a deep brownish reddish colour gloss, slightly darker than my lips I love this because it looks natural and quite beautiful once worn. My lips look full and pouty!!


The price is right.

The packaging is sleek and simple.

The applicator is huge with a tapered tip for precise and quick application.

Super shiny.

Full coverage.

Soft, subtle scent.


Only stays on for 1-2 hours maximum, so you have to reapply often.

Limited shades available especially for us women with pigmented lips.

Would I Repurchase: Most definitely yes.!!!!

I bought this in the shade called Desire!

A blast from the past

I am actually a little embarrassed as I have neglected this blog horribly.  Major surgery this year – I had to have a lap myomectomy…. spent almost ten days in hospital.   The long and the short of it – no more IVF – Dr V says he does not Recommend even trying . Too  risky….

so the end of that chapter….

My emotions have been a real rollercoaster and these days more low days than good days and DH’s travelling doesn’t help either…

Of  late I have found some beautiful blogs on fashion and makeup and they have not only been informative but also entertaining as I am learning so much!

It also helps to get my mind off the whole Baby thing….
