Today’s post is a review on Mamonde’s Easy Drawing Gel Liner in Brown (No.2). I’ve been wanting a gel liner for a really long time, so during my trip to Korea i picked it up from Aritaum after seeing how pretty the colour was. A bottle is about 6g (decent size, not too small), and I paid about $12 if I remember correctly.
Included in the handle is a small eyeliner brush. Kinda cute but the brush is not as firm as I would like it to be, especially if I’m gonna be drawing an intense line and need lots of control.
Don’t be fooled by the name! It ain’t plain brown yo. Inside the liner there are many tiny specks of gold glitter, but on the eyes it’s not that visible. I love me some glitter though, so pretty~
It’s a pretty natural liner, and the texture is creamy. Not too wet, I like! However, I felt that the brush made it harder to apply the colour since the tip of the brush is so thin.
Overall, I like the liner, it’s really pretty and it lasts super long. No smudge, no flaking off, it’s good~
Unfortunately, Mamonde is not available in Singapore. You can purchase the liner here instead.
My entry for the 2015 Shu Uemura Vision of Beauty contest.
The theme this year is ‘Haute Street’ and the style i chose to do is bohemian. I’ve always associated bohemian with rich, brown, earthy tones, and muted soft colours. I’ve mixed dark and light browns that had golden shimmer with warm undertones to give a glowy, warm colour to the face. I also wanted to keep eyes and lip colour really soft and blended- you know how bohemian photos always have that filter over it that softens bright colours? Yeah, I wanted that effect.
Makeup contests are always difficult to approach because of the complicated topics. After looking at the makeup again and again, I often lose the enthusiasm I have in creating the look, and I feel like it’s not good enough. I hope I did okay in the public’s eyes~
Hopefully with the start of another school term, I can still stay inspired and work hard on makeup. I really want to do more and more unique makeup looks, and practice many more techniques.
[UPDATE]: I didn’t win, but the competition was still fun!! Also, I realised that my face chart looks creepy as hell.
