Ciaté London: Fierce Flicks Liquid Liner (Review)

Image
Product Summary: This liquid liner is easy to apply due to the precision felt tip that makes drawing thin or winging out simple. Your liner is not going anywhere because it is long lasting and has a budge-proof formula. It is meant to glide on even over eyeshadow. This liner costs around 19$. 
I ended up getting this liner through my Ipsy glam bag. Ipsy is a beauty subscription service that for around 20$ Canadian you will get 5 items ranging from full size to sample size. You also get introduced to a lot of cool brands that are cruelty free and for me it's nice to discover new companies. For more info on Ipsy, you can check them out here.

I don't know if I got a liner from a bad batch but damn! This shit is not budge proof at all. I can't tear up, cry or laugh too much (I tear up when I laugh a lot). Or else it will streak at the corner of my eyes and I look like a hot mess. Definitely, not waterproof too. With just a little bit of water the line…

Product Summary:
This 2-in-1 concealer conveniently joins together a colour corrective and a light flesh tone cream concealer to help you achieve flawless looking skin. Yellow hides dark under-eye circles and other bluish skin discolorations while light covers yellow and any minor skin imperfections. It is a gentle creamy formula, transfer-resistant, water-resistant and glides on smoothly to a velvety finish. It is also hypoallergenic, fragrance free, dermatologist approved and non-comedogenic  which means this product won't cause blocked pores that lead to black heads and pimples developing. This product is priced at around 10$. 


***Cruelty Free 👍💖***

The one thing I truly love about this product is that it is long-lasting. I can have a 10 hour work shift and I can feel safe knowing that it doesn't wear off. I end the day looking as good as I started it. Of course, it does crease but not as bad as other concealer's I've used before. For me it's not very hard to…
