Blue Indigo and Prune… Nope, I’m not referring to the names of failed superheroes, yet just like comic book characters, these two Sally Hansen Forever Stay Eye Pencils ($8) are superhumanly blessed.
Blue Indigo (a matte emerald blue) and Prune (a matte violet) pack marathon staying power and seriously intense color. With rich jewel-toned colors and a durable waterproof formula, they’re powerful drugstore seducers.
You know how some liners creep onto your lid after a few hours? So not the case with Forever Stay. Once applied, it stays put from dawn to dusk with nary a smudge.
The other day, I applied Blue Indigo in the morning before heading to school. I only had a minute to manipulate and smudge the color in place, but that was enough. The liner was on like Donkey Kong.
Later that day after school I sweated through an hour-long power yoga DVD (Tabs gets up in my mix whenever I downward dog, ha), and Blue Indigo still refused to smear or fade.
Before I removed my makeup that night, I estimated that roughly 80% of the color remained in place. It was still going strong along my lash line. Although it had just barely begun to fade along my waterline, Blue Indigo definitely lasted longer than the average pencil liner.
Beyond its awesome staying power, Forever Stay glides across skin like skates on fresh ice. Shoot, these liners might be even smoother than Hugh Jackman in a tuxedo — and that’s smooooooth, people!

Forever Stay Eye Pencils are still the new kids on the “Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy” block, so color selection remains limited for now, but there are a few more shades to go with the ones above — like Deep Jade, Deep Black and Chocolate Brown.
Forever your girl
This post got me thinking about songs with the word “forever” in the title.
I just totally rocked out to Paula Abdul’s, Forever Your Girl…
LOL! I can’t believe this song still kinda moves me.
Anyway, I’m so glad it’s Friday! I have a lunch date with a friend in San Francisco. Hopefully the weather cooperates so I can take some quick pictures around Union Square.
How are things in your neck of the woods? Do you have any plans for the weekend?
