New! Laura Mercier Kohl Liner Extreme

 

From the Laura Mercier Dark Spell Collection the new  Kohl Liner Extreme  is a creamy high pigmented liner that glides on smoothly to quickly add depth and definition to the eyes. I really love this liner, its different than anything I have ever tried and worked really great for me.

First thing the packaging of the Kohl Liner Extreme is really cool. The liner comes in a twist up tube that is very similar in size and shape to a lipstick tube. I found this made it easy to control and apply without any mistakes.

The liner itself is really creamy, it glides on  smoothly leaving the perfect line. I am able to use this along my waterline with zero irritation, which is a rarity for me and my crazy sensitive eyes. Once the linear is set it stays put no smudging, fading or flaking I was impressed the line was as dark and defined at the end of my day as when I applied it.

Get The Look: Mila Kunis Steel Eye Shadow

InStyle Celebrity Beauty Tip:

Mila Kunis’s character in Oz: The Great and Powerful may be wicked, but we’d never know judging from the delicate nude lip and silver shadow she wore to the film’s London premiere. Drawing inspiration from her dress, the star’s makeup artist Tracey Levy picked up a metallic eye shadow that almost tipped to purple to give her look a feminine edge. “I chose a grayish lavender that works beautifully with her green eyes,” said Levy, who used Laura Mercier products. “It has a bit of silver, but the warmth from the lavender makes the color a little different.” Often times, chromatic shadows like Kunis’s look gorgeous in the pan, but fall flat when swept across your lids. The key to bringing out the dynamic shimmer is to start with a good eye shadow primer. In addition to keeping your shadow from creasing, the smooth base gives it a place to adhere and makes the color appear more pigmented. Applying the shadow in a sweeping motion increases fallout, causing the glitters to stick to your face instead of your eyes. Make sure to press the color onto your lids, then blend out any harsh edges using a dome-tipped shadow brush.
