Gilded Finds

From one liner to the next. If you're not a fan of the creme liner, than this one is for you. I have officially found a pencil that is softer than Urban Decay's 24/7 liners, at a much more affordable price. With...twice the pigmentation! I'm turning a bit into a drugstore addict...but that's alright, if they've got what I'm looking for. Presenting L'Oreal's HIP Chrome Eyeliner in Silver Lightning and Black Shock.

L'Oreal is making a huge comeback with these sorts of products--their pigmentation easily rivals that of MAC. Lining on the waterline is a breeze, as it lasts for hours. Although that's the case, I still pop mine in the purse for touch-ups. They are extra creamy and soft, so they glide one without any tugging whatsoever. And look at the intensity--need I say more?

Well I will say more. I'm going back for the remaining colors. When items like these are buy one get one free, it's nearly impossible not to snatch backups.

Speaking of chroma-type shades, check out this nail varnish that Sally Hansen has released with her current Hi-Definition line. Hot!!!

It's perfect for night, but just so gorgeous under the daytime sky, as it turns from shades of purple to a bullet-like silvery gold. The shade is Opulent Cloud. I've just learned that it is the one that is inspired by Tracy Reese (only one of my favorite designers!), and was the exclusive shade of her Fall 2009 runway show. It's no wonder that I love it! It is limited edition, so if you're a fan, get thee to a chemist!

One last thing--in the theme of all things golden or gilded, I was tagged by Miss Dila over at Bubbly Mubbly Bubblegum with a Color Tag. The color of choice? Gold! Easy peas for me, as everything in my life needs a little gold in it--in fact, it was one of the colors for my wedding! I chose five random things that were gold, and have captured them on film:

Shown, are Illamasqua's Liquid Metal in Solstice, a bikini top, a pair of satin shoes (that I'm sure I'll get to wearing over the holidays...size XXXL , I know), L.A.M.B. fragrance (which was purchased for the rasta colored bottle that hides under that ginormous cap), and my gold OLO Mt. Carmel scapular. Oops, I did five items and you were supposed to find seven.

I know that many of you have done this before, so if you haven't, feel free to do so now! And Gold is still the color of choice :)

Are you a gold fan? Or do you sway more towards silver or copper?

fantastic said...

@tali: yes, i'm sure you will love them! report back when you get your hands on them :) xxo

Princesa Livia said...

Those liners look amazing!! You're so right about the pigmentation... although I haven't seen these at the drugstores in London though. I'll keep looking :) Thanks for the post! Livia

fantastic said...

@princesa livia: i think it depends on the drugstore...some here have it, and others don't..i think they're still a little new to the line. good luck!

Dila said...

Those liners looks like markers! I mean colors looks gorgeous!!! I need to check/buy them seriously I ve never seen somthing like that before!
and that's for sure gold makes me happy! I dunno why but it does :)

Melissa said...

oh my goodness wow! I wonder if they have l'oreal hip in New Zealand...
Melissa,
xx.

It's nice to have 3 drug stores within close proximity. Now I just have to find the ones with the BOGO offers.

I'm loving that silver polish too. I've always been a fan of the metallic nails...blame it on my attraction to shiny things.

resham said...

'softer than urban decay'///I AM SOLD...:)
All i have to do is wait for BOGO...woo..hoo...:)

fantastic said...

@dila: it makes me happy too :) they really do come off a bit like markers--not what you'd expect in a pencil!

@melissa: i'd guess they might have it at Life Pharmacy? At least I recall them carrying L'Oreal--let me know if you find it!

@Kajal Couture: I save time by going to Blogdorf Goodman to see who's having the drugstore deals for the week--otherwise I'd drive myself mad, going in circles from store to store!

@Resham: Check out Blogdorf Goodman to see who's have the BOGO offers each week!

Rocaille said...

These liners are amazing, I'm loving both of the colors... and the nail polish looks fab as well! Great find :) xxx

tina_mbc said...

Hmmm! Any expensive metal is good in my book!
Sometimes I tend to go for the gold and sometimes for the silver! Lol! ;)
But, hello, how freaking AWESOME are those liners?
Amazing pigmentation (so now I need to find out if these do come to my country, hmmm)!
Fantastic nail polish too, looove metallics for the nails! ;)

xoxoxo

bubblegarm said...

OMG I need that silver liner!!!!!!!!!! x

fantastic said...

@rocaille: good, I hope these fulfill your need for a new drugstore liner :)

@tina: yes, metallics are my thing...glitter or metallic? Definitely metallic for me!

@bubblegarm: it feels the way the liquid metals feel/look on. We've yet to get the silver liquid metal, so I'm hanging on with this!

Lipglossiping said...

wow, those swatches look amazing. Wish we could get L'oreal HIP in the UK!

Puna said...

I'm loving the slv/blk eyeliner's from L'oreal and getting both w/back up but i also want a gold!!??

Suka said...

@lipglossiping: I'm sure you have it somewhere out there, no?

@puna: backups indeed! x

Citrine said...

The silver one is so pretty...I never thought of trying these as they are quite expensive (like 10 bucks) and I am used to paying a dollar for those prestige liner (some colors are really pretty) when they are on sale...But I think I might get a purple one when they are on sale in my drugstore.

fantastic said...

@citrine: i saw the purple one today..v pretty. i won't buy them unless they're BOGO, bc I agree--it's the Forever 21 syndrome, where things start looking extra expensive if they're anywhere over $1. Prestige for $1? I saw them for $5 today..where are you shopping?!

Citrine said...

I got all of them at clearance basket (because I am even too cheap to buy them for 5 bucks...*sighs*)

fantastic said...

@citrine: i need to be at YOUR clearance basket!
