Jane Cosmetics Water-Resistant Eye Liner

jane eyeliners

Proof that great beauty products don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. The Jane Cosmetics Water Resistant Eyeliner Pencils are only $6 and rival the most high end eyeliner pencils. The formula is rich, creamy and glides on so easy from your first use to the very end of the pencil. I love how creamy the formula is, it makes a straight line even with my shaky hands and is very blendable. And once the pencil sets it doesn’t budge even with water, sweating, and long days the color and liner stay true until you wash them off.

On top of being a great liner the color choices are amazing. My favorite shades have to be the Midnight Blue and Forest Green they work great alone or as an accent color over black eyeliner. The swatch below is a simple swipe and shows how great this formula is. Can’t wait to try more shades from this line.

Beauty Breakdown:

  • Long-wearing, water-resistant liquid formula won’t smudge or budge

Giovanni Purifying Facial Cleanser

CYMERA_20160302_144834

I have been doing this fun thing where when I travel for a night I leave my face wash at home. I may have a billion kinds but I somehow don’t pack any. On a recent beach trip I realized I once again forgot my face wash and headed to the little market to grab something. I stumbled upon this Giovanni D:Tox System charcoal face wash and decided to give it a try.

With the weather switching between pouring rain and sun and the humidity my face felt icky. The face was is a dark grey which looks a bit scary but after the first wash I was sold.  I loved how smooth and clean my face felt and yet not dry. Since stumbling upon this face wash it has been my daily go to and its a really great facial cleanser. Gentle enough to not aggravate my sensitive skin but strong enough to get my pores and skin really clean. I have noticed my face is clearer with less white heads and spots popping up and the overall tone is better. The patchy under tone has cleared up and my skin looks much healthier, and smoother.

I guess sometimes its not a bad thing to leave your cleanser behind!
