When I first tried Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and thin eyeliner I loved it. It had a felt tip pen end which made it super easy to apply and achieve different thickness’s. I couldn’t fault it as it had staying power. But since then I have felt out of love with it very quickly. If you know me you will know I rarely wear make-up in the summer and save eyeliner for nights out and special occasions so I was surprised to find that the pen has almost dried out and that smooth application which I raved about is no more. I managed to apply the body of my eyeliner but failed to create the signature flick due to a fuss bit which was create on the tip which I think was caused by the eyeliner pen being dry. I thought I had managed to salvage the situation and rushed out the door for my date when my boyfriend pointed out that my eyeliner had gone wrong and resulted in me explain how I was trying to create a flick as I rubbed out the attempt. The date when smoothly I just wish I could say the same for the eyeliner. Its fair to say I won’t be buying this again.

Is fashion superficial? I like to think it is not but there is certainly a line to be drawn around the smoke and mirror’s it can create. One thing I have noticed about the blogging world is more and more people are interested in fashion posts with substance, I’m not saying this is the end of personal style posts but I feel the diversity of these blogs are opening up to feature issues that are close to the writers heart giving more value to the fashion community.
It never gets old being selected for Links a la Mode and I think if there was ever a Links a la mode stuffed with value and great content it is defointly this one. So please do give them all a read and comment on there posts, have your say, after all half the fun of writing an opinionated/commentary post is read the responses.
Superficial on the Surface
Sometimes I get mad when people assume if you like fashion, you’re automatically dumb or superficial. Then at the same time, I love looking at pretty pictures and dressing up… it’s an escape and a passion all at the same time. Obsessing over fashion doesn’t mean however, there’s nothing going on in our brains! This week, we have a great mix of the tougher questions in fashion right along with the tips and tricks that enable our superficial exterior (that’s not so superficial…. or is it?)
