All your eyeliner are belong to us
A week ago I was perusing my local Mecca Cosmetic and noticed the entire staff wearing neutral coloured eyeshadow and turquoise eyeliner. Super cute, simple and fun! And that is how I put Tarina Tarantino’s Eye Dream Highlight Hyperliner (try saying that five times fast!) in Amethyst Android.
Temptalia did a thorough review a little over a year ago — a seed was planted.
Recently Tarina Tarantino decided to let her contract with Sephora end, a sale followed suit and I managed to nab a liner for $9.00 USD (regularly $15.00) during my visit to the States. Have no fear, Tarina’s makeup range is due to debut on her own website as early as this month! In the meantime, I’m kicking myself for not picking up more colours.
Amethyst Android, blurple sparkle (blue and purple combined ) is a soft eye crayon with amazing waterproof abilities. Your tears will have no fears should you happen to shed a few. Colour opacity had to be built up by way of making soft strokes (more like Morse code); by the time I reached the outer corners of my eyes, I found I wasn’t having to go over my handiwork repeatedly as the crayon had warmed. This look was paired with minimal makeup — I used MAC’s Shroom all over my lids and painted black mascara on my lashes.
The sparkle is subtle, it mainly helps to enhance the colour’s intensity by reflecting the light. It’s appropriate for day, night or both.
The Bagful breakdown:
Total amount for Tarina Tarantino’s Eye Dream Highlight Hyperliner in Amethyst Android:
- $9.00 USD; regularly retailed for $15.00 USD. I hope Tarina doesn’t increase her prices once the move is complete.
Value for money spent (performance and quality):
- 10 out of 10 bags – A total steal! User-friendly and lasts all day.
Would another purchase be on the horizon?:
- Can I have all the colours found in the rainbow?
