Dollywink Pencil Eyeliner - Black

My dad came back from Hong Kong/Macau just yesterday and bought me some makeup that I requested which I'll prob be doing more reviews on, so watch out for an EOS Lip Balm review and Skin 79 Super BB Triple Function!
Anyways this review will be about the Dollywink Pencil Eyeliner in Black, honestly I asked my dad to get the Liquid Eyeliner incase I ran out of present one but I did want to try the pencil one out so Im still happy (:

Top: Liquid Eyeliner  Bottom: Pencil Eyeliner
Front & Back view

Price: HK$79 around AUS$9-$10 

The price really didn't matter to me since my dad bought it haha, but if I used my own money to buy it I would definitely consider getting it! [[You will see why later on]]

Packaging: 4/5 Stars

Honestly, the packaging is the cutest I have ever seen, it just makes me want all the eyeliners to be packaged like it! The only downside to it is taking the lid on/off, i mean its easy to take off but when you put it back on I didnt even know if it was closed or not. This is my opinion so some other people may disagree, but silly Angel didn't fully put the lid on tightly so it fell off. All you have to do is push it in till it cant be pushed but I have an ocd if I push too hard on a lid to an eyeliner pencil that it might squish the product...yeah im odd.

Conducted some tests to see its power!

Product: 3.5/5 Stars

So the pencil pretty much glided in the skin very smoothly, it was quite pigmented, but not as pigmented as the Milani Liquf'eye (most pigmented eyeliner I have). So I did a few tests to see how it compared with Milani.
Smudge Test: I rubbed pretty hard with my finger and the Milani one smudged more than Dollywink but the Dollywink did smudge only a very small bit.
Water + Smudge: I ran my hand over with warm water, nothing happened so then I started rubbing and guess what? The Milani one started to go off, I was actually really surprised with the results. Dollywink has amazing staying power during the tests!
Used it on my waterline :)
Okay so onto the lasting power on the waterline!
[[I did cheat and reapplied on the "3pm" picture]] But I went out with the Dollywink from 3-6, walking around and eating and it did start melting off the waterline, but Im just happy it didnt run down and create panda eyes like most of the pencil eyeliners I use!

I really do like this pencil most than the Milani since the Water+Smudging test amazed me a lot. But they are very similar once on the waterline. But I would personally get the Dollywink since it lasts longer than Milani. Milani is much more creamier which wastes more product, in my opinion, but the Dollywink is creamy but isnt so creamy that the product goes low fast. But if you prefer a darker and creamier pencil eyeliner I would recommend Milani, but since I don't like harsh lines I prefer Dollywink. I would definately buy it again.

Rainbow Eye Makeup

You can't really see the green nor purple :(

Products Used:

-DB 48 Colour Eyeshadow Pallette
-Essence Kajal Pencil in 17 Neon Sweetie
-Sportgirl To The Point Liquid Eyeliner
-DB Black Kohl Pencil
-Maybelline The Falsies Mascara

So I was playing with my essence yellow eyeliner since I never actually used it so I really wanted to see what it would just look like with just black eyeliner but I ended up putting yellow eyeshadow over it  and using the eyeliner itself as a base, but I then somehow continued building up the colours by putting a coral red in my crease and outer V and then putting orange in the inner eyelid area.
I then put green eyeshadow on the inner lashline and blue on the outer part.
The inner corners were missing something so I put a purple which ended up not looking so well...
But I lined the top lid thinly with my Sportgirl eyeliner and lined the bottom with my DB black eyeliner pencil and then curled and added mascara.

Im actually really happy with the results since I do have asian eyes so it is quite hard for me to do eyeshadow looks and this is the first time it turned out well (: 

&& No I will not do a tutorial since this look wasnt planned and I did do random stuff to it and added random colours in.

Latest Haulage!

Sorry for the inactivity! I just don't have the time to blog even though it's the holidays but here's the latest beauty haul I have done.

So a few weeks ago I went shopping and bought a lot of stuff which were on sale since it was the end of financial year sale :D I bought a lot of jewellery & clothes but not many beauty products which is kind of sad... but I only bought 2 things which were:

Maybelline One by One Volum' Express in blackest black- $10 @ Priceline

A review will be coming soon on that, and all i can say is it is best mascara I have ever used in my whole damn life.

Ulta3 Nail Polish in French Pink- $2 @ Target

I needed a new pink nail polish since I used all of my pink ones so I bought that, its a very sheer polish that I think is supposed to be used for a base of french manicures since it is the perfect baby pink colour but it goes into a a deeper baby pink after a few coats of it.

I also bought an eyelash curler at Daiso! I didnt take a picture because I forgot I bought that

Then today I also went out shopping to go buy my penpals birthday present which was a toy giraffe and a penguin witeout, I'll probably be buying more presents for her next week, which means more shopping! Ill be visiting Priceline and hopefully buying the new Savvy by db nail polishes, and Ill maybe do a review (: Anyways onto the haul!

Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make-Up Remover- $7 and something cents, sorry I didnt even print out a receipt -__- @ Safeway

Might do a review! It was on sale and I was tempted to try it so I bought it.

Ulta3 Nail Polish in Red Glitter- $2 @ Safeway

All I can say is it is sosososoo pretty on the nails and with a red base! (I will take a picture once my pink nail polish starts to chip on me)

Homebrand Make-Up Removal Pads- $1.70 i think @ Safeway

Yeah I needed them so I could use the Garnier makeup remover, it was the cheapest alternative too.
