Effortless Eyeliner
4.0
Created with Sketch.
from

5 months ago

I've had mixed results from this eyeliner. I started with Jet (black) and found that it smudged on me, then switched to Spice (bronze-y brown with shimmer) and found it was great for everyday, just enhancing my lashline and appropriate for day/work. I probably went through 2 or 3 of them, then ordered another replacement and found it to be hard and dry with absolutely no color payoff. There was a snafu in receiving this last liner in that I opened the box and found a Jet liner inside the Spice box (this happened again with the replacement they sent me), so perhaps the one I eventually received had been lying around in the warehouse for awhile? Either way, customer service was very easy to deal with and I think I'd give it another go on the chance that the dry one was a fluke. I did notice that the Spice liner is not currently on the website (as of 9/7/19), so maybe they're getting another [fresh] shipment in.

Waterproof Lengthening Mascara

This is a very good mascara, but not a great one--for me, anyway. The good: lengthens and defines beautifully, formula causes no irritation, and holds a curl ALL DAY (and I have straight Asian lashes that point downward, so putting all the effort into curling them only to have the mascara wilt them down again is an issue). The not-so-good: smudging at the outer corners a few hours after application, with a full undereye crescent by the end of an 8-hour workday. In other words, it's one of those mascaras that I have to keep an eye on throughout the day, but swiping away the smudges is not super easy as the formula itself is waterproof and stubborn (you'll need a heavy-duty eye makeup remover at the end of the day to get the rest of it off--I had good luck with Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm or just plain coconut oil). I would actually rate this a 3.5 stars, but depending on your eye shape and lashes, it may not smudge as much on you?

Cheek & Lip Rouge

This is the star product of the Stowaway Cosmetics line, in my opinion. It lasts all day on my cheeks, blends easily and acts as a matte stain for the lips. That being said, having owned and used all 3 shades, I would probably only repurchase in the Cantaloupe color. The Burnt Rose is fine in the fall/winter months on my cheeks, but isn't super flattering on my lips. The Peony shade looked RIDICULOUS on my cheeks (Asian, super yellow undertones, lt-med complexion, "Light" in concealer and foundation), but okay on the lips. Cantaloupe was the perfect, natural peachy-pink and looked good on both the cheeks and lips, so it does double-duty when I travel. Also, although it has to go in my 3-1-1 "liquids" bag when I fly (I put it in there to be safe), being able to apply easily with my fingers means I don't need to bring a brush, either.
