Limited Edition: Rebirth Collection Tri-Color Eye Pencil

Update by Erin:

I just tried the shu uemura  Tri-Color pencil and I love it! It makes it easy to add a touch of vibrant color to your everyday look.  The colors go on warm and bright and open my eye up without ever looking too heavy, it smooths on so easy with the crayon style applicator. This fun little pencil has three colored tips that snap into each other and can be used as eyeliner or eyeshadow.  They go on smooth and the small size was great to carry in my purse and apply after work before meeting friends!

What it is:
A colorful, stacked eyeliner and shadowing pencil from shu uemura made up of three coordinating shades.

What it does:
These unique, connectable three-in-one eye pencils have a soft, creamy texture which adheres extremely well on the skin. The convenience of three beautiful shades in one enables you to draw multiple colors onto your eye area and create looks without boundaries.

What else you need to know:
Use the pencils as a liner, or blend on the entire eyelid as an eyeshadow. They may also be used as an eyeshadow base for a more intense look. The limited-edition pencils come in shades Aqua Flow (cool tones of green and blue) and Energy Flow (warm tones of yellow and peach).

Revitalize your look this Spring with shu uemura’s limited edition Rebirth collection. Inspired by the purity, energy, and innocence of the spring season, Mr. Uemura designed the 126th Mode Makeup collection to celebrate its 40th anniversary by using a combination of soft and vivid hues embellished with a unique and graceful leaf motif to communicate the revitalization of nature occurring at this time of year.

Hot Right Now: Yellow Eye Shadow

GET THE LOOK: “Bright primary colors are so in for clothes right now, but you should diffuse them for your makeup,” advises makeup artist Natalie DiStefano of the Rita Hazan Salon in NYC. “Easter yellow is too full force, distracting and unflattering,” says DiStefano, who recommends hues with shimmer to dilute the shade.

INSIDER TRICK: One word: Cream. “Straight yellow powder can look chalky, so look for a cream shadow you can easily spread and control,” adds DiStefano.

The perfect liquid liner!

I buy a lot of Dior products, not gonna lie.  I love using them, they are such great quality – and will last all day.  It’s nice to not have to re-apply makeup half way through the day.  Dior products stay fresh, and looking amazing, all day.

I have noticed that liquid liner is making a strong comeback with celebrities.  I love how Penelope has her eyeliner, it’s almost the “cat eyes” look.  I decided to brush off my liquid liner that I’ve had for years, and give it a try.  Of course, the liner was so old, it flaked off when it dried.  So I headed to Sephora, and thought I’d pick up Dior’s Style Liner, and give it a shot. 

The liquid liner does take some time getting used to, but once you’ve got it down – it can be well worth it!

Style Liner
Intensify your eyes with this rich, creamy liner created especially for the runway. Now you can get that model-esque, “femme fatale” look on your own – in seconds flat.

Better than Diorshow??

I got hooked on Diorshow last year but as great as it was I noticied that after 2 months of use it seemed to flake pretty bad and it would wear off before the end of my day.  At $23 a tube I would expect it to last the full 6 months container life it promises on the side. Though I do think it is an amazing mascara I thought it started drying out too quickly so I started trying new mascaras recently.

 After trying a few big Sephora brands I decided to hit the drugstore and try out the more affordable brands. One of the first mascaras I tried was Cover Girl LashExact mascara and I absolutely love it! Instead of the normal wand with bristles the lash exact has silicone like bristles I was a little apprhensive about how well it would go on. To my surprise the mascara goes on super smooth and not only does it add a lot of volume without clumps it made my eyelashes look a lot longer.

I have only been using it for a few weeks so I will update once I find out about the longevity of each tube for only $7 this gives you all the volume of Diorshow and adds serious length.
