The Ink Gel Eyeliner- Pretty Vulgar Review

Hello friends! How was your weekend? We had a friend stay with us which I always love. I love entertaining!! Any ways, I ordered this gel liner based on recommendations from youtubers. It was raved about and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I have to say I was so disappointed with this product. My overall rating would be a 2 out of 5 stars and lets dive in to why.. IMG_3811

The packaging is stunning. I love how it looks like an old timey ink pot. The copper/gold is beautiful. Gold and black is my favorite combination. The unicarton is also beautiful. The font and script, I love everything about it. And the container makes you feel like you are getting a lot of product.

Next this liner is EXTREMELY pigmented. It is black as it gets which I really like and was surprised but how dark it actually was. A little bit goes a long way which is awesome. I think this liner would really last someone a long time.

Unfortunately there are negatives for me.. As always your experience could be totally different. IMG_3827This was right after applying the liner so it hadn’t smudged yet, but I don’t think this product is for those of us with oily eyelids. After only a couple hours my liner had transferred to my upper lids and the bottom was very smudged and smokey… It wasn’t cute. I hope y’all have different experience with the liner. It claims to be waterproof and last all day but I didn’t get that pleasure.

Lastly it was an expensive liner. At 24$ I want a liner that lasts until I decide to take it off.

Have you tried pretty vulgar liner? What was your experience?

till next time

It should come as no that I am obsessed with Urban Decay! When I worked at Ulta as an artist and manager I used their products non stop! They really are bomb. After I left working there I sort of fell off the Urban Decay train. Not for any specific reason. I just started testing out less expensive options of makeup when I found out I had a baby on the way. That has not stopped my love for all things beauty whether cheap or expensive. Okay anyways while on vacation for the 4th of July weekend I of course had to stop in at my old stomping grounds and pick up this gem! IMG_0114This bad boy retails for 45$. It comes with 5 cream contour and highlight shades and 4 contour and highlight powders. There is a brush you can purchase that goes along with the palette for 39$, I opted not to because I have plenty of brushes to highlight and contour with.

I am so pleased with my purchase!! The creams blend like a dream and the powders are silky soft and if you are looking for a natural highlight and contour this will be perfect. The shimmery highlight shade that is in the palette gives a beautiful natural glow but not super beaming so if you are like me and want a super glow you will want to add another highlight.

Overall this is an A+ palette and purchase!! I would definitely recommend this if you are on the look for an excellent all in one contour and highlight palette!

Till next time loves!
