Ciao bellas,

After more than a month of having the L'Oreal HiP kohl liners, I finally found some time to do a makeup look using them. May told me these liners are good materials to do the smokey eyes and I do agree with her.

"They rock," I said after the first try. However, they have more fall outs than the snow on top of Mt. Kilimanjaro if you're not careful. But when there's a will, there's a way. I found a way to apply these liners without making a big fuzz out of it: instead of holding it straight, I just apply it sideways. The fall outs simply reduce to next to nothing, ta-da!

Here's the look


  • Apply Rubenesque paint pot all over the eyelid as an eyeshadow primer, then using an eyeshadow brush like MAC 239, I applied Navy Kohl to the eyelid.
  • Using Sonia Kashuk blending brush, I contoured the eyes using NYX Oro.
  • Then I used Gold Kohl to line the upper and lower lashes (it's hard to see in the pictures but the liner was there!)
  • Finally, I curled the lashes and applied 2-3 coats of mascara.

...and voila, I looked like this!

My "I'm dreaming of free makeup" look :)

If these liners were not as messy, I would have used it more often. Rubenesque does alter blue eye shadows a bit and Navy Kohl looks a lot like dark green than dark blue. I really enjoy playing with these colors: I've had Oro for a while but did not get to play with it as much. Also, I didn't apply any highlight colors underneath the brow bone as it would throw the look waaaay off. Oro and the HiP liners are really shimmery.

That's all, folks! What do you think? Please comment, alright?
