Haul/Review: Viva Glam Cindy & Gaga, Maybelline Eye Studio Gel liners

I have been searching for the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liners for the longest; I went to several different pharmacies in my area, such as Duane Reade, Rite Aid, and CVS.  I FINALLY found the  Gel Liners at the Duane Reade on the Corner of Montague Street & Court Street (Brooklyn Heights).  For my Brooklyn people who are searching for them, they had a good amount there, unlike the one on Jay St & Fulton.  

The Gel Liner’s come in 4 colors: 
1. Black
2. Brown
3. Grey (Purchased)
4. Plum (Purchased)
Maybelline’s Claims: Only our oil-free formula can hold highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base.

  • So color is more intense and lines resist wear for 24 hours.
  • Smudge-proof and Water-proof.
  • The most intense line for lasting drama.

Price: $9.99 

I also purchased this, L’Oreal’s Telescopic Explosion.  It was suggested to me by one of my Sorors.  I tried it last night. I don’t really like it.  For $9.49 I think it could be a whole lot better. What my MF 2000 Calorie Mascara did for me in one application, I had to apply at least 4 coats to get the look I wanted with L’Oreal’s Telescopic Explosion.  It didn’t clump or flake, nor did it smudge.  It just didn’t do anything for my lashes.  


I’ve saved the BEST for last!  Viva Glam’s Cindy & Gaga! (Available for a limited time – 12 months)
Price: $14 – All proceeds of VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass is donated to the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS.
I LOVE them BOTH! I wore Gaga last night lined my lips with Chestnut Liner, layered Pinkarat Lustreglass … This is how it looked. 


I also picked up: Funtabulous Dazzleglass for Jonesy

Look out for swatches & haul on my youtube channel

Review: Graftobian HD Creme Super Palette – Warm

This is my review on the Graftobian HD Creme Super Palette – 18 Warm Shades
I posted about this earlier here
Graftobian has a Comparison Chart (click here) for this palette & the other 2 (Neutral & Cool) which shows the comparable colors in other brands, which will make it easier to match colors.

-The foundations are very creamy, highly pigmented; you need very little.  
-The foundations can be thinned out with a moisturizer or thinner (I used the Graftobian Oxyderm Moisturizer) to get the coverage you need or to make a tinted moisturizer.
-You can use your finger, foundation brush, or sponge to apply it.
-Colors can be mixed to achieve your desired color.

Great palette to have in your kit, especially since it has a variety of shades.
Price: $60 from Camera Ready Cosmetics
