There are 4 items I need to show you and I’m nuts about 2 of them. Like, I LOVE IT nuts. So, I want to tell you about them first.
Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse (RM65) 24-hour long-wearing brow mousse is my absolute favourite. It tints, tames, fills in even my sparse brows. I never thought a “brow-scara” can do that. The mini applicator brushes on the water resistant styling mousse which resists smudging, sweat and humidity. I’ve been wearing this when I’m out during the day, and trust me when I say it’s been ridiculously hot and humid here (about 35C with humidity level of about 80%). Once I step out of the house without any air conditioning, I’m already sweating as if I’m leaking everywhere. However, my brows stayed on until I had to remove it. It was awesome, man! This brow mousse actually thickens my brow hair and fills in sparse areas like a boss. There are 4 shades to choose from: Soft brown, Deep brown, Soft blonde, Black brown – and mine is deep brown. Removing is easy too. Any oil based / bi phased removers will do. I tried using micellar water, and it was more difficult to remove.
The second thing I love out of these 4 is the Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara (RM66). When I first saw it, I didn’t think it would work because the brush is so big! It looks like some sort of torturing device, but when I looked at it more, it just looked like some hair curling tool. The bristles are short and firm, and they actually grab every one of my puny lashes with ease. The oversized brush ACTUALLY worked on my lashes, and it worked amazingly! One coat is enough to volumise my lashes, and it’s a feat to shout about…for me and my pathetic lashes anyway. It didn’t weigh down my lashes either. Well done Clinique. For the price that’s only slightly higher than drugstore mascaras, I’ll definitely get this.
Then, onto the 2 liners that I want to share with you. One is a liquid pen liner, and the other is the tiniest pencil liner. The Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen (RM85), has a soft brush that is very fine at the tip. It can create the finest of lines, and the sharpest of flicks. However, if you’re a newbie, then this brush might be a little soft for you. Felt tips are best because they give you absolute control, but you won’t have the fine and sharp point this pen gives you. It didn’t smudge or transfer on my lids, even without a primer, but most liners don’t. It removes easily with micellar water.
The new Clinique Skinny Sticks (RM72) are ultra-fine, no sharpener required eyeliners. Please note that they DO NOT RETRACT. All I do is just to twist out the required amount, maybe 2mm, line my eyes and that’s it. The pencil is so small that I can easily tightline with the most precise line. That’s because these skinny sticks are only 2/3 the diameter of traditional pencils. There are a few shades to choose from – Slimming Black, Black Silver, Slim Sable, Olive-tini, Skinny Jeans and Demi-Grape – and mine is black silver.
Here, let me show you how I use these 4 eye products for a more defined eye. But first, just look at the first picture of my brows, and the second with the browscara on. Did I mention I love it? Then you’ll notice I added mascara after brows. That’s only 1 coat, and you can already tell the difference, can’t you? Then, I added the liquid liner on my upper lash line, and the skinny stick on my lower lash line. The last picture you see is me using the liquid liner to thicken the line and added some on the lower lash line.
In short, the brow mousse is the WOW factor for me, followed by the over-sized mascara which I didn’t think would work. The liners worked well, but other liners work just as well. There you go. If you’re looking for something for your brows, I highly recommend this Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse. For mascara, if you want something affordable that does its job, this Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara is great at volumizing. Photos don’t lie. No photoshop whatsoever on photos above. No foundation, no concealer, just bare face and the 4 eye products.
