I discovered these awesome drawing pencils and mascara by Shu Uemura a couple weeks ago and sharing them with you keeps getting pushed to the back burner. But today is the day! Check out Shu’s Eye Liner Drawing Pencils and Petal Lash Mascara!
First, the Petal Lash Mascara. The formula for this shade is the blackest of blacks. I get volume, length, and curl from this formula, and it has become a fast favorite. The applicator is almost slinky if you look at it closely. The bristles at the tip of the wand are tiny, meant for getting in to the inner corners of your eyelashes and the bottom lashes. The outer bristles help you achieve that va-va-voom look.
I love the effect it gives me! Below I am also wearing one of the Drawing Pencils in G Gold 93 on the bottom lash line. This is how I love to wear this gold shade for a little pop of unexpected shimmer!
The Drawing Pencils come in several shades, but below I have pictured G Gold 93 and ME Pink 12. These pencils come in 18 colors to mix and match. There are some fun colors and some that are more tame- 9 dark defining colors and 9 bright shades. I like the fun and bright shades!
These all have a creamy texture to them, last all day, are smudgeproof, and waterproof. I like to wear the gold shade underneath my lower lash line, and I like to wear the pink shade as a double eyeliner. I will sometimes draw a thick stripe of the pink on my upper lash line and smudge a darker shade like brown or black into my lash line, leaving just a bit of the pink showing. It’s allergy season for me so I have not been able to do this successfully lately without looking like I have pinkeye, but if you need a visual, I’m talking something like this.
If you don’t suffer from red eyes like I do, pink eyeliner is totally wearable! I would wear it with a nude lid, or if you want to pair it with something a little more, pair it with some matte neutrals like the Naked 2 Basics palette.
