Welcome back to my corner of the internet! Today I’m reviewing the eye and lip pencil by Jay Manuel Beauty! I got this product as a free sample from an app called Plum. I haven’t used it until more recently when I created a makeup look, where I used the pencil smudged along my lashline!
As I got this product free, I’t was for sure in the correct price point haha! But seriously, this pencil retails at $20.00 on the Jay Manuel website. The pricing is more of a high end product so I suppose the price point is pretty good.
I haven’t come across a black eyeliner PENCIL this pigmented! It definitely took me by surprise when I swatched it. Using this pencil on your waterline for a smokey look would be perfect!
As you can see here I used the pencil on my upper and lower lashline and smudged it out using a small smudger brush from Morphe.
The product blended perfectly, and was super dark and perfect as a base for darker shadows.
Overall Thoughts? Would I Purchase?
Overall I LOVE this eyeliner! I don’t grab for pencil eyeliners often as i’m addicted to gel and liquid liners, but this pencil has for sure changed that! Its very creamy and easy to blend and doesn’t run in the waterline. This is the perfect pencil eyeliner!
Have you tried the Jay Manuel cosmetics line? Your thoughts on this liner?
Till next time,
I’ve been playing around with the A20 Liquid Eyeshadows for well over a month now. I picked up the two shades Wave and Thermo for a dollar a piece at Shop Miss A. Shop Miss A is a super affordable website where everything is $1.00! They have a more “professional” line called A20 where the items are a little more than a dollar but still very affordable.
The packaging seems very cheap but super sturdy! The tubes feel very lightweight and almost empty. The lettering on the tubes will wipe off with much use, but almost all plastic tubing without a label will.
I wasn’t wowed by the pigment of this product. When I think Liquid eyeshadow, I think of a base so shadows are more pigmented. These did not give me that effect. Thermo was super patchy and hard to build. Wave was slightly better, more opaque and easier to build up for the perfect base.
These shadows never really dry down and will transfer if not set with a similar eyeshadow. I always thought maybe i hadn’t warn the shadows long enough for them to dry down, but after wearing a swatch of Wave for over 8 hours it was clear they weren’t made to be worn alone.
Overall Thoughts? Will I Repurchase?
I don’t believe these shadows are something I’d be purchasing again. I love liquid shadows for a base for my least pigmented shimmers, but these wouldn’t do any better than them. For the price this is a “You get what you pay for” type of product. I’m not a fan of the way the shadows don’t dry down either. I’d give this product a 2/5 rating.

Welcome back to my corner of the internet ! I’m so excited to tell you all about this double liner look I tried out last week! Let’s hop in!
I was trying to think of a simple but bold (super contradicting I know) way to add a pop to my simple makeup look I had created. My solution was using this silver liner I got from the beauty supply store and drawing a mirror image of my winged liner slightly above my crease! I had seen a similar look on one of my favorite YouTubers Alissa Ashley as seen below:
It certainly pays off following your favorites on other social media because she hasn’t put a tutorial of this look on her YouTube channel.
So this is the eye look I created:
- LA Girl pro concealer in Toffee
- Sasha cosmetics buttercup powder
- Morphe 350m pallet
- Colourpop limited edition Birthday Boy eyeshadow
- Silver liquid eyeliner
- Black liquid eyeliner
- Benefit Roller Lash Mascarra
I’m working on upping my makeup techniques so be on the lookout for many more makeup posts to come!
Thank you for reading!
