Favorite Eye Products
‘Favorite’ list is often used as reference and comparison to find out which best suited for us. So if it could help you, here is my favorite list of eye products:
Makeup remover: L’Oreal gentle lip and eye waterproof makeup remover. Maybelline’s is my less preferred option because somehow I have to use more product to remove the same makeup. Maybe it’s just me. Oil-based remover? Kose Softymo deep cleansing oil. Traveling? Biore make-up remover towelettes (different packaging).
Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion in #original. I have only tried 2 primers: UDPP and one from La Tulipe. Unfortunately the latter turned too oily on my already-oily eyelid. Worth a try for less-than-IDR 20k price. Never tried others and this primer in genie bottle (old version) lasts for at least 4 years because I only use it very sparingly and on special occasion.
Eyeshadow: NYX (Smoky Eyes palette [discontinued] and Charcoal -single) and Urban Decay (Smoked palette) are in my most reached stash for color range and intensity. I also have some from MAC and Milani (mine are all discontinued) which give wonderful color payoff, too. I choose eyeshadow mostly in palette because I would NOT finish any of them given in single colour, which usually come in bigger amount of product.
Liquid eyeliner: Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Glossy (black), Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid (Radium, Smog), MAC Superslick (Defiantly feline), MAD Indelible 3 in 1 (Pandora), Revlon ColorStay (Blackest black). [I’m wondering about My Darling! People say it’s a steal for such price.]
Mascara: Maybelline Hypercurl Cat Eyes and L’Oreal Lash Architect 4D. I like NYX Doll Eye #Volume and #Long lash and Majolica Majorca Lash Expander (discontinued), but the aforementioned are much easier to get.
Eye brushes: mostly by Make Up Show from Makeuptoolshop.com. Fine quality for the price. Love it.
I arrange my makeup in 3 groups: daily use, dressing table drawers for special occasion, and boxes for ‘waiting list’. I rotate them every 6 month (if I can remember it correctly) and the ones I won’t be using in a year would be ‘released’.
I love Sariayu eyeshadow colours, but the first palette I got years ago stung my eyelid so I steer away from them 🙁 I also love PAC eyeshadow. Bold colours, wonderful payoff. Too bad I broke the palette. Sariayu, PAC, and La Tulipe are brands of must-try eyeshadows.
Or a more simple reason: I got these first and haven’t finished them since first purchase. If your first purchase is a very good deal (quality and price wise), you might refrain to try other product unless you’re interested on other colour or type.
