Last week in the Fancy Finds #15 blog post I mentioned that the skin around my eyes has become quite oily as I have gotten older. (I was going to say matured, but there is nothing mature about me.) Make-up that I had worn for years no longer worked. One of my biggest complaints was my eyeliner. I put it on in the morning and then by the early afternoon it was just GONE. It simply melted off my face. I’m not one to carry around make-up other than lipstick. I’m a one application and done type of person.
I was introduced to Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner by a make-up artist who did my make-up as part of a spa day. She was about 10 years older than me, and informed me that my complaint was quite common among the over 40 female group. She recommended the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner. She used it on me and I was pleasantly surprised with its staying power. I immediately bought two colors and have been using it ever since.
If you have the same oily skin around the eyes like I do, you may want to give these a whirl. WARNING: This eyeliner is not cheap at $26.00 a pencil. Desperate times call for desperate measures though. So, yeah…
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
