I’m always looking for cheap thrills, especially ones having to do with makeup. Before I tried them, I was sure the uber-affordable Milani Liquif’Eye Liquid Eye Liner Automatic Propel Pencils (just $5.49 each, SCORE!) would fit the bill.
New for spring 2011, these affordable twist-up eyeliners come with a fancy schmancy tip that doesn’t need sharpening. The fun shades of green, purple and blue are supposed to last all day long…with “supposed to” being the (controversial) key phrase.
I tested the green one today along my lash and water lines, but contrary to Milani’s claims, it didn’t last long. Along my lash lines, it exhibited significant fading after three hours, but that was still about two hours longer than it lasted along my waterlines, where it gave up after one.
And as if that wasn’t disheartening enough, it took five layers to reach opaque coverage, yikes!
The price, packaging and colors hit the mark, but their mediocre wear time and coverage leave me wanting more.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at drugstores and also online

Dudes and Uggs??
In completely unrelated news, the other day while El Hub and I were walking around a shopping center we spotted a middle-aged guy wearing Ugg boots. Yeah…I understand wanting to have warm feet, but for some reason it just wasn’t working. Heck, though, what do I know about fashion? Tabs is the one with the fashion sense!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I hope your week got off to a good start. I’m glad we got Monday out of the way.
