Holy wow! That’s a lot of liners. And they’re full size too!
The pencils in the Korres Limited Edition Vitamin E 10-Color Pencil Kit work out to just $3.25 each ($32.50 for the kit). Of course, all of them are green.
No, not literally. I mean they’re eco-friendly and 100% natural, according to Korres, made with moisturizing Vitamin E and jojoba oil. And considering that eyeliners this size (standard 0.04 oz. pencils) usually go for $16 apiece, the kit’s one of the best holiday bargains I’ve seen this year so far.
Korres included a wide range of pigmented colors in popular shades from their permanent line…

Do you like soft, smudgy liner looks or liners layered beneath powder shadows? If so you might like these a lot. All 10 of them blend and glide like Olympic ice skaters along lash and waterlines.
Paired with a good eye primer, I’ve been getting about five hours of wear along my lash line from these and about three hours along my water line. I don’t think they last as long as either the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencils or Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes, but I should also say that my lids have been oilier than usual lately, and that might be cutting down their wear time.
Even having to reapply these liners a little more often than I’d like to, I love their vibrant colors, bargain basement price and soft texture.
PRICE: $32.50 for 10 full-size pencil liners

I’m not getting sick! I’m not getting sick!
Well, I felt pretty good when I woke up this morning, but I sure am worn out now. I hope I’m not catching a cold. Just in case, I’ve been drinking lots of water and popping vitamin C like it’s going out of style! I may have to bust out the Cold-Eeze tonight…
I did perk up a little when I saw this new mascara from Ultraflesh. It’s called Panthera ($26), ha! Like from Thundercats? Wait — that was Panthro.
I showed it to Tabs, and I think he may have recognized the cat, ya know, from a previous kitty modeling gig.
So what was the highlight of your Wednesday? Anything exciting to report. Mine was probably the Tocca hand creams I’ve been testing (more on that soon), and the fact that Tabs was extra lovey today.
