Budget Make-up: Essence Eyeliner

One of my favorite budget make-up products I've been using the past few months is the Liquid Ink Eyeliner from Essence in Waterproof. For a stunning €2,59 (price in the Netherlands) you get an amazing product. Here are some of the positive points:

* Doesn't smudge
* Easy to apply
* Stays deep black all day
* Very easy to make thin lines or wings with
* The price!!!

The only downside I can think of is that it claims to be waterproof. I wouldn't call it waterproof, it's more water resistant then waterproof. But it's not really something that bothers me. It doesn't fade or run when it rains a bit. But when you shower with it still on it will fade. Below I took some pictures with some swatches on my hand and an after picture after washing my hands + rubbing them dry. So if a drugstore near you sells Essence products I would highly recommend you to give it a try!
Before and after washing my hands + rubbing them dry. As you can see the eyeliner is not waterproof but definitely water resistant. Most of the product came off when I rubbed my hands dry.

NYX Butter Gloss Peaches and Cream

I have told you guys about the Butter Gloss from NYX before (read about it here), a product that I purchased a while back. And I have to say I absolutely love it. Peaches and Cream is a gorgeous pink color as you can see in the pictures I took. It unfortunately doesn't last all day but that's ok with me. I'm a messy eater so after eating or drinking I have to reapply. The thing I was surprised about and very happy with is the nice smell the product has and after applying it doesn't become super sticky. It really smells like candy but not to overly sweet. I also love how vibrant the color is. My lips got this beautiful pink color after applying 2 layers of gloss. Not to mention the price! It's great price-quality wise. In conclusion, I'm very happy with the Butter Gloss from NYX and will definitely purchase more colors in the future!
