Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

In addition to the Sephora Give Me Some Lips, there's also the Sephora Favorites Draw the Line that comes out every holiday season. It's just that I never gave a rat's ass about eye liners before and thus didn't pay the Draw the Line set any attention. That was, until last year when my friend A. recommended Eyeko's range of eyeliners to me, specifically the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, a 0.04oz. mini version of which was among the Draw the Line edition 2013. Yup, pretty much my cue to pick up the set.

Sephora Favorites Draw the Line 2013 includes Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Stingray, this Eyeko Mini Skinny Liquid Eyeliner Black, Sephora Collections Long-lasting 12HR Wear Eye Liner 02 Glitter Black, Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes 0L Matte Black, Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Intense Black, and the dual-ended Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Demolition-Perversion.

Victoria's Secret VS Pro Smooth FX Lip Scrub & Balm

Last of my Victoria's Secret clearance loot this past June is the VS Pro Smooth FX Lip Scrub & Balm, which was actually more expensive than all the other items at $8! This is a pot of sugar scrub for lips. The screw-cap houses a balm with a flip-top lid.

This is actually my very first lip scrub, and I don't like it at all LOL Honestly, it feels just a bunch of sugar in an emollient, vaseline-like base... Oh hell, what am I talking about? It IS a bunch of sugar in an emollient, vaseline-like base! I hate my lip products to have any taste at all, scented is okay, but not taste, so right away I hate that I'm actually rubbing sugar on my lips, because it tastes like, well, sugar on my lips. And if that's the case I'm better off making my own lip scrub with cane sugar and coconut or almond butter, in case I accidentally ingest some it won't poison me ^.^ And I save $8!

Victoria's Secret VS Pro Light FX Eye-Brightening Pen

This 1.75g/0.62oz. Victoria's Secret VS Pro Light FX Eye-Brightening Pen is the second half of the duo I bought during the VS clearance in June, the first being the Concealing Eye Brightener Pen.

Victoria's Secret VS Pro Light FX Concealing Eye Brightener Pen

This 1.5g/0.53oz. Victoria's Secret VS Pro Light FX Concealing Eye Brightener Pen - Light was among my VS clearance loot back in June. There were actually 2 pens as pictured here, one is a Concealing Eye Brightener Pen, and the other is an Eye Brightening Pen. I asked the SA what the difference was and she kept pointing to her under eye areas and said she was wearing the concealing pen but didn't answer my question otherwise. Huh? I mean, unless she's wearing the concealing pen under one eye and the brightening pen on the other, and even then I'm not sure if I could tell given the full face of makeup she had on. So I ended up grabbing both pens ^.^

Victoria's Secret VS Graphic Liner Pen

Also among my Victoria's Secret clearance buys was VS Graphic Liner Pen in Blackest Black.

All pictures taken in natural light without flash.

This is a felt-tip liquid eye pen, very much along the lines of Clio Waterproof Pen Liner. The difference here is the pen tip: Clio is chubbier at the base, then taper to a point, whereas VS is quite skinny throughout with a longer pen tip. You can get a fine line with both, but it's probably easier with the VS pen since a slight tilt of the hand with Clio will produce a thicker line. I usually make a dotted line, then go over in one stroke to connect the dots.

Victoria's Secret VS Pro Lasting FX Eye Shadow Primer

Picked up a few things from Victoria's Secret semi annual sale this past June, including this 7g/0.24oz tube of VS Pro Lasting FX Eye Shadow Primer. I haven't tried an eye primer from Victoria's Secret before, so I was curious to say the least. The fact it was about $5 helped a lot ^.^

This primer is packaged in your average tube with a doe-foot applicator. It's unscented, and comes out of the tube a firm cream with a slightly oily feel, very much like Nature Republic Botanical Eye Primer. I sort of had that oh-great gut reaction the moment I swatched it, because the Nature Republic primer was a dud and this VS one feels like it's heading in the same path.
