It’s true, it actually happened: I have found a weather/emotion/sweat proof glittery eyeliner that has improved the quality of my glitter wearing life for good. NYX Cosmetics Liquid Crystal Liner in Gold is possibly the most perfect sparkling gold eyeliner that will ever grace your eyelids.
So, a little tidbit about my life: 11 years ago this January I made the decision to move to Southern California from Northern California for several reasons, but one was to be closer to Disneyland. True story.
While I know there are people who visit Disney nearly every single day, I really don’t visit that often mostly because it costs a pretty penny to hobnob with Mickey and the gang! For my son Andre’s birthday this past August I splurged on annual passes for us (which you can finance and pay monthly, thankfully) and we’ve been enjoying visiting when we have the chance.
For years I had one opinion on wearing makeup to amusement parks: fuhgeddaboudit it!!!! While I admire the women who can keep up with priming between rides and waiting in lines, I came to the conclusion it wasn’t worth the worry. Don’t ask me why but on our last trip I tempted the fates and didn’t remove the makeup from the 365 Days of Makeup look I’d applied earlier that day.
We’ve been dealing with a heat wave in Southern California the past few weeks and that day it was unbearably hot and humid. As we did our thing at Disneyland – Astro Blasters, Pirates of the Caribbean, that crazy Autopia line – I kept checking in on my makeup. While the eyeshadows had seen a better time and place, the glitter liner remained perfectly intact! No flaking, no smudging, no crazy fall out – I am amazed, hooked, and plan to pick up more of these fab liners.
My Final Thoughts: Costing less than a Pumpkin Spice Latte, you need to nab these liners! The quality and endurance along with fine glitter makes this an overall win.
