2008 Best Of/Worst Of: Eye Makeup (Others)

I don't have any Worst of 2008 Makeup Base, so I'm moving to other eyemakeup. This is my personal Best Of/Worst Of list of 2008 purchases. Best of 2008: Eye Makeup (Others) 2008's Best Liquid Eye Colour Image002copy Beaute de Kose Eye Fantasist Thanks to Yumeko's reviews, I started buying Beaute de Kose Eye Fantasist liquid eye colours. Love them so much I now have a small collection in a short time. Texture: Easily blended liquid. Colours: Nice variety of colours in the Eye Fantasist range. They provide a subtle shine. I love the ones neutrals I have, they can be good on their own and as a base. Pigmentation: Buildable, can be applied lightly to achieve a sheer look too. Lasting Power: Lasts all day long for me and I have watery eyes/oily lids. Doesn't crease at all. Final Verdict: It's not cheap price-wise but I love the quality. I will definitely be adding more to this collection. 2008's Best Mascara Image000copy Top to Bottom: Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing (Ltd, BR777), Majolica Majorca Lash Bone, Dejavu Fiberwig (Brown). These are my favourite everyday mascara. I alternate between them depending on my mood. For me a good mascara is one that doesn't smudge all day, lengthens, separates my lashes into a natural fluttery look (ie. doesn't clump them) and is easy to remove. These mascara do all that. Lash Bone really curls up my lashes, but I can't use it with Fiberwig, it's too much of a good thing, so I only use it with my Majolica Lash Gorgeous Wing. Worst of 2008: Eye Makeup (Others) 2008's Worst Mascara Image001copy Bourjois Volume Glamour Mascara This mascara clumps. I shouldn't buy volumising mascaras. It also smudges awfully. I always have to go over it with my Fibrewig to seal it, so it kind of defeats the purpose of using another mascara. 2008's Worst Eyeliners Image003copy Majolica Majorca Automatic Neo Liner I'm so disappointed with this that I made a post about this in New Revelations on Majolica Majorca Neo Automatic Liner. For me, a good liquid liner must not smudge, must be easy to apply (hence I prefer pencil-shaped liners with the brushes attached) and must be easy to remove (that's why I don't get Kpalette though it is good). Next year I will try Koji as Yumeko suggested, and I also purchased Shiseido's liquid liner pencil and gel liners during a sale, so I hope those will work. 2008's Worst Cream Shadow Image004copy MM Frozen Splash Eyes (PK705) It's so sweet, I still love to look at the colour in the pot. But it is too shiny for me, isn't pigmented enough and doesn't last at all, so it is useless even as a base. Very sad. I shouldn't buy this anymore since I am not very, very young nor very sweet. © Copyright. All rights reserved.

I love those mascaras too! And I've got them as well. LOL.

Btw, I tried the new Maybelline one which says it's No.1 in Japan. It's works for me too and it rather good price-wise ;)

I love Beauté de Kose Liquid eyeshadow and I finally found someone who appreciates MM Lash gorgeous wing as well: I have read mixed reviews of that product but I adore it for keeping my curl and looking lush.

Haha, I agree with you~ LOL @ you're not very very young nor very sweet. Haha. Well, I think you're a very sweet person! :] Frozen Splash Eyes don't crease on me, but yea, they're not pigmented AT ALL.
